Hi, my name is Sven and i`m addicted...
 
...to the Fallout games (FO 1+2, FO:Tactics)



I really wanted to know, if there are others like me, who have a normal live, family, work and household to keep clean, AND still are addicted to the Fallout games!?

I know that some of you don`t even know the games since they are from 97/98, but perhaps some fellas here can understand me?!

I mean, come on....i remember when the FO1 demo was released it all started: I had some friends visiting me, and we wanted to go to a party. My girl was @ home watching TV with some other chicks, and i was ready to go....




....but then i happend, and i started the demo. Little talking here, little puzzling there, and then the first fight: "BAMMM".....my enemys torso exploded after a nice burst from my MP.

"HOLY S H I T"....that was so awesome. I played and played and played....meanwhile my friends were gone (the party, you remember?) and i was still playing the demo. After about 10-15x through the demo, when i was 100% sure, that i had seen everything in it (next day again up to 10 times ;), I knew it: This is the game. The one and only....


@ this time i was over 20, so i never could imagine i will be so deep into a game EVER! (but i never get to old for gaming i think....)

Well, the time went by, and i finally got the game (imported from USA to Germany, cause the german version sucked ass and was cut and censored like hell!)

I played, and played for days till it was over. It was a very strange moment: The game you couldn`t wait to get your hand on was over....finished.

Happy or sad...i didn`t know what to be. I played it like 4-5 times with totally different Chars i made (Soldier type, Talker, Martial Arts, Sneaker/Thief...Man/Woman and so on)

Some weeks later i think, it happened: The sequel was anounced: Fallout 2!


Yipieeeee.....man was i happy!

The time went by, some previews came, and i knew it: Bigger, better ->FO2!

This time i said to my girl: "Sorry Marina, but you have to understand me. I will take 2 weeks free from work, and won`t be much around the next days..."

I have a really great girl. She didn`t understand me, but she could live with it. A man, who sits 14-16 hrs in front of the computer playing some Mad Max ****, comming to eat, no sex, and straight to bed. --> This lasted some days like 5-6, than FO2 was over for the first time.


And now please don`t laugh: I cried when it was over. I was so damn sad, cause i knew somehow, that this was it--> The Game of my life.

And believe me, i`m really no nerd or computer junkie, i`m not fat and lonely or anything. It never happened again, not before or after.

Even FO:Tactics was very good, not as good as FO 1+2, but still very good.

Now, in some weeks "The Fall" is comming out, and i hope it could come close to FO. Looks very nice, and is Mad-Maxed like Fo.
I played FO2, and now 1 again, for a last time i guess, and i am really lovin`it again....6 years later, and still nothing lodt from it`s magic!

So, are there any other FO addicted here? I really would love to know.

And please don`t make fun of me, cause i really love one game so much, that i would sell my house to play a third part (which perhaps will come, because the rights are sold to the Morrowind-makers, since Interplay/Black Isle was closed)

BTW, Brian Fargo or Chris Taylor: If you read this, i really love you guys for what you did with FO1+2. Thanks!


Oh yeah, of course i have a "real life", but all that stuff i wrote is true!


Have fun guys...

Sven

I'm addicted but frankly FO:T was horrible :P I even visit No Mutants Allowed, and Duck And Cover. I really got pissed when they canned FO3, and then gave it to a no talent Bethesda, the Morrowind games were so horrible :/

Hi Sven

Anyway, I'm not exactly addicted to the games, but I have played through them each multiple times and I always enjoy it. I started with Fallout 2, I remember I got it from a pawn shop in 1999 for like $20, and it was the one of the best $20 I ever spent on a game. Still my favorite open-ended RPG out there (including MMOs), I hope that Bethesda handles Fallout 3 well. Fallout Tactics was OK, but I wish they made a real sequel to the original games rather than a spin-off game based around different mechanics (though it did give a nice glimps into how a multiplayer Fallout could be done, and making characters was suprisingly entertaining).

I hear ya man: PRAISE THE LORD....there are others ;)

Yeah, FO:Tactics wasn`t even close to FO1+2, but i guess for me it was kind of a nice trip back in the wastelands. (You know what i mean)

If Bethesda is going to **** up FO3, im going to burn their homes down, kill their dogs and eat their children......(just kiddin`)

I guess it will be like any other 3D-RPG those days, even if games like Kotor, Gothic1 and Gothic2 are really good. But not even close to Fallout.

You know "The Fall"? There is a nice video out (around 100megs) with a great music score. How do you like it? Think it could be close..?! I hope so!


Well, i have to go to bed, it`s 2:30 here in Germany atm, and it`s really nasty to get up early, after 4 hrs of sleep..... :-(

But nice to know other "addicted" FO Players, and yeah NMA is a good page regarding FO. Theres www.Vault13.de and www.supermutant.de which i can recommend you if you are german!? ...and the "The Fall" Forum is nice too!



Bye, and good night

Sven

Hi, my name is Jon, and i'm addicted to gaming in general. Currently, it's (don't laugh) Pokemon Colosseum. Damn you monty! Just when i thought i'd gotten over Pokemon completely a friend brings this over to play. Other than that it's FO3, Dawn of War and UT2004.
