Well my favorite fallout game drum role please fallout brother hood of steel the graphics better than any triple a title on the market right now the story don't even get me started. Gameplay amazing I gotta say it surpasse's knack one and two in some ways. Also it by far has the best linear world of fallout I ever seen unless you count tactics but even then it's a toss up. I give it a solid Nicolas cage out of Kevin spacey. By Ign :troll:

New Vegas for sure. I loved all the ways you could tangle, twist, and branch the narrative and play the various factions against each other if you so chose. I liked the political landscape you got dumped in and how nuanced it was on every front. I liked how you could be a complete dick and murder everyone who gets in your way, and can still complete the game. In my mind, New Vegas represented the direction the Bethesda formula needed to evolve in...and which they unfortunately didn't, and never will. Which shouldn't be any surprise, since it wasn't developed by Bethesda.

Fallout 2 is second. I like how open it and its predecessor were. You have no "main quest" to proceed through in a linear fashion, just maybe a trail of loose leads to follow at your discretion. It helps you feel a bit more like a detective of sorts, though you're also free to just dick around if you so choose, which might allow you to stumble upon your goal by accident. I wish more RPGs adopted that kind of formula (you'd think that the explosion of open world games would encourage that, but NOOOOOOO!). Fallout 1 is the same, but 2 is just bigger all around, and easier to get lost in.

I voted Fallout 2 because, while 1 is the more concise and finished classic, 2 is the big crazy ambitious mess of a follow up that you could lose yourself in for a year, and I did (shades of RDR2). Forget just doing post-apocalyptic Fallout stuff; I worked for the mob, became a porn star, and eventually POTUS (well, I had his ID badge, anyway =). Fallout 2 isn't just the best Fallout game I've ever played, I could make a case it's the best game I've ever played, period. Having said that, unfortunately for those that really didn't get into it or Fallout 1 at the time, I don't know how accessible it is anymore. Like I certainly am not going to replay it today, and I just threw it into the GOAT (G.E.C.K.? =) conversation.

As for the Bethesdas, I don't really count those among the first two Fallout games. They're something else, like a remake or spinoff, even New Vegas though it's a nice compromise and basically the the closest thing we could get to fulfilling the original vision of Fallout 3 by the Black Isle team (I'll always be grateful to Bethesda for letting this game happen). So, I'm not bashing them either, because playing Fallout 2 I dreamed of doing it in first person and at least got somewhere close between 3 and NV. Fallout 3 is a pretty good semi-early example of an effective big budget soft reboot/requel too (before it became the norm in film as well as games). It basically recycles and reworks the major plot points and story beats of Fallout 1 and 2 into a more visually immersive and streamlined package. But it was more smoke and mirrors than the meticulously handcrafted, interactive worlds of the originals. NV brought that craftsmanship back the best it could, but was still limited within Bethesda's framework, then Fallout 4 doubled down on the cinematic experience and combat, which was fun, but that much more dumbed down when it came to immersion through consequential interactivity. At least relative to the originals, I mean I don't hold every or maybe ANY other game to these standards ("You mean I have to follow the story progression? That's like a baby's toy!"), but if it's called Fallout I do because that's what made those original games special.

I've played through quite a few of them (3, NV, parts of 1-2), but Fallout 3 was the only one I really enjoyed. And most of that was just my interest in seeing how they converted the DC region (where I live) into nuclear rubble. Something about the setting in Fallout games just has never meshed well with me, and on top of that, I don't particularly like Bethesda games.

Well what about fallout brother hood is no one going to attempt to redeem that game because I know I can't(or can I). Also fallout 76 might be hard to defend but I would hardly call that a fallout game I think fallout brother of steel is more of a fallout game. And tactics there is really nothing of note its just there though I can see why some people would like it.

Yeah, I can see it being disturbing for younger viewers initially, what with her parents being turned into pigs and being left all alone in a scary place. It reminded me a lot of the Disney films I grew up watching in that respect. I didn't care for Spirited Away all that much the first time I saw it, but it's grown on me immensely over the years. Princess Mononoke is probably my favorite Miyazaki film, but Spirited Away is a very close second.

My favorite is howls moving castle though princess Mononoke is really good as well just some of the symbolism  in its went over my head through my first viewing of it,but I learn to appreciate it message through my other viewings.
