5.0 out of 5 stars Bethesda Strikes Again, October 15, 2009
This review is from: Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (Video Game)
In 2007, I purchased Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Game of the Year Edition) after finally jumping into this generations gaming systems. Close to 400 hours later, I decided that game was the best value for my money in terms of content, quality, and overall fun that I would ever play.

I was wrong.

My wife purchased me Fallout 3 in 2008 as an anniversary gift; she knew I'd played the original Fallout games and really enjoyed Oblivion with me, so it was a great gift. To say that I was stunned and enraptured with Fallout 3 would be an understatement; I've played this game with regularity for over a year. It is a huge, expansive, detailed, life-like world with so much to do and see that each time through you can find more and more surprises that you may have missed previously. Toss in all 5 DLCs at a mere $60, and this game is pushing 150 hours of game time just for one play through.

This is an incredibly involved game and isn't for everyone; its the kind of game that takes hold of your imagination and won't let go, so if you have the time to play a game of this depth, I recommend purchasing it immediately, its worth every penny.

Postman35"Post" is absolutely right. I bought Fallout 3 last January at Meijer's (a store like Walmart) for $30, and played it (including all of the DLC's) all the way up until the end of August. It was, and is, the absolute best game for story, graphics, and value, I have ever played.

Depending on whether or not your playing the game for a simple solve or your looking at making an investment of time in entertainment strongly influences your level of investment on a time scale. This game will require a minimum of at least a week and considering that the longer games out take me at most two days says something. I honestly suspect that if someone was using nothing but console cheats that it would still take them several, long and deeply involved days to complete the basic campaign -- that's insane, awesomely insane.

Anyone who has a spouse that gets them something like this for mate is beyond words in my book; that's not a spouse or an anniversary that's a friend looking for an excuse to put a smile on someone's face. Plus ten Postman.
