PC/ Xbox/ PS? doesn't matter. Great game. Bethesda took some flak when they bought the franchise, but this installment does a really good job of updating the 1997 "Fallout" to modern format. The design team did an excellent job thematically and aesthetically, and kept the lore of the original games very canonical. My favorite thing is how they took a 10+ year old (at that time) top-down PC strategy RPG and evolved it into a modern FPS while still maintaining the RPG feel. (I concede, it's "The Elder Scrolls" with guns, but it works). In fact, it made me dust off my old PC copy of #1 and I got hooked all over again. It did so well it revitalized and renewed an interest in a game I'd all but forgotten about, but more importantly, the transition between the two was practically seamless because they did such a fantastic job of translating the essence of the original into "Fallout 3". Yes, "Fallout: New Vegas" is probably the better game as any true Wastelander will tell you, but it wouldn't exist were it not for "Fallout 3" and what it accomplished.
