Will Fallout 3 be remembered in 10 years' time?

  1. Absolutely. It will leave a lasting impression.

  2. Yes, it's a great game.

  3. Propably, yes. Look at the sales numbers.

  4. Maybe. I don't really know.

  5. Rather not, it's a mediocre game that's fun, but forgettable.

  6. No, the gamers will grow up and it will be forgotten.

  7. What, Fallout 3 exists?

  8. Yes but for the wrong reasons.

    Says you.

    Its not even forgotten by you or this community, which in general (not wholly) are against those games. The fact that you posted on this and that we are having a debate about this speaks to that, otherwise it would be ignored like the BOS forum. Prove me wrong NMA stop posting on the FO3 forum and then I will believe it is forgotten.

    Minority vs Majority , and were only talking about being remembered, not whether it is a great or even good game, but only remembered.

    Oooh thats not a misleading statement at all, drawing a parallel to F3 being hated by a large part of the fan community? Even it that were true, hate still requires thought, not absent mindedness, so still not forgotten.

    Says you, time will tell.

    Fallout 3 will be remembered as that game where you could put an old woman's head in your fridge. It won't be remembered for anything important.

    Here we might think otherwise, but there's legions of Bethesda fans out there who disturbingly view this game as having a message of as much greatness as
    -insert famous artistic work with message here that is actually good-

    As a long time player of the Fallout series, I find that Fallout 3 had it's memorable moments, like the first time you left the vault. That one moment is what I will remember most from it. Is it overall as good a game as Fallout? No way. Is it fun? Yes, especially after modding it. The biggest advantage to it is the mod community which help better the game.

    Will I remember it in the same light as the first Fallout years after I have played it? Not likely. I will remember it better than New Vegas though.

    Strange how every Bethesda game post morrowind is not a good game, but apparantly fun to play (with mods).

    It's true to say though that Fallout 3 is not the game it could be without mods. With mods it ranks much higher in my books. I still play it regularly (modded of course) because it's fun.

    Yes, whether you want it to be or not. More remembered than fallout1/2 by the majority of gamers for sure.

    Oh, there he is! on duty as per usual. Damn son, I gotta admit I respect your blatant, unrelenting, depressing, blinded, downright amusing hate.

    I'm eagerly anticipating your next misguided post.

    I guess not only your eye but also your brain is blinded.
    you haven't seen any other RPG but games for idiots like fo3.

    fanboys like you always saying Fo1,2 is outdated and fo3 is brand new. why? because it has better graphic or something. but what about fo3? does that has brand new graphic? so fanboys of lightened games like you will think fo3 is outdated after few years. if not, you will be another outdated nostalgia gamer as you said.

    oh.. wait, fo3 is already outdated since NV and skyrim.
    congratualtions you are one of the nostalgia gamer you have been criticised! :clap:

    Fallout 3 will be cherished and loved in the mainstream gaming industry.

    For the Fallout fans who grew up on F1/F2? It will be forever hated.

    I am a big fan of the traditional isometric view of old school RPGs and I was a bit dissapointed when Bethesda made the Fallout 3 an FPS. But i"m pretty amazed that it delivers a new and engaging atmosphere.

    One thing that I don't like is the location in New Vegas. Desert is already a wasteland and I can't feel the aftermath of the supposedly "post apocalyptic" theme of the series.

    I embraced the Fallout series wholeheartedly and will always be my number 1 RPG of all time.

    I don't quite have the same feeling. The one aspect of Bethesda I've always liked was their artists. There might be some loss in the initial idea once it is transferred to a 3d world but it mostly remains. However, that atmosphere does NOT hold up in a world where cartoon cutouts are the only population, such as random vampires and an alcoholic with two hookers which bethesda must have really thought was extremely "adult". Nor does it hold up when every quest does not fit into the world and does not have any quality of writing. And on top of that they dump a green filter. So I don't quite see how anyone would get a gritty post apocalyptic vibe from this game.

    Firstly, the original two took place in deserts FAR more barren than New Vegas'. Secondly, New Vegas is like Fallout 2, post-post-apocalyptic. Besides, it was never about showing off a world destroyed by nuclear bombs as much as it was about showing the ways people survive, thrive and sometimes fail in a world as destroyed as that.

    The whole series isn't one rpg though.

    For me, Fallout 1 will always be the king of the franchise.

    I honestly respect your opinion.

    Both deserts but in a different view. "For me" the whole point of an "FPS" is to feel the environment, to appreciate the art in a much larger view. And seeing a desert in a grander scale is not my taste, it's like painting my screen with yellow and shades of brown.

    My realization when/if I heard/read the word "post-apocalyptic...Maybe I would think of a city in ruins because it would be common sense (and not just by nuclear means) to target a populated area during a war. I like or admire the isometric view of the 1st and 2nd Fallout because with that view I can see the map better and I think it blends with the structure of the game. And that is the reason why I loved the first two Fallouts. That being said, it took me some time to fit myself in with the new "FPS" style of the F3 and FNV. Another thing that I disliked are the underground metros -it puts a large toll in my sanity.

    Thanks! And I would reconstruct my sentence to "I embraced the Fallout series wholeheartedly and will always be my best RPG series of all time.

    Great game! Thanks.

    Huh, didn't figure there was such a vast gap in opinion between the Interplay titles and Bethesda's take. Ain't that something. Yeah, it was a good game, 1 was a good game, 2 was a good game. Pedestals are too expensive to pay for nowadays, especially with all that maintenance.

    I put its a great game. It got me into the fallout series. Loved the atmosphere and clutter and the music and the exploration. I still have some fun playing it with arwens mod. BUT is it a great fallout game? No not at all. Take fallout out of the name and label it as a roleplay a scavenger game and its 2 thumbs up.

    Fallout 1 & 2 are remembered 17 years and counting... I cannot imagine that FO3 will be remembered in 17 years. The reason is that FO3's specialty/gimmick is graphics, open world and empowerment fantasy... and that is improved upon every couple of months by the industry; but Fallout 1 & 2's specialty/gimmick is gameplay & story related interaction; with extended dialogs, and Player/PC fallibility ... and that is rare to see at all in games these days, and has not been much improved upon.

    When people post of how it's unfair to compare Fallout to FO3, I usually agree, but I usually see it as unfair to FO3... like comparing a welter-weight's stats with a heavyweight's. As an RPG, Fallout is in a class above any of it's follow-up titles.
