Pretty much everyone has heard of the fallout series. Most talk about fallout 3 and fallout new Vegas but This started it all. A Must play, It has great dark humor , Turn based combat, Strategy, Great story, Good graphics for a old game, Tons of places to explorer.
Also,After your first play through, i would recommended downloading Fallout: Restoration Project And Fallout 1 high res mod.
Theses mods really improve the game play by adding a tone of new areas and features.
Still one of the best RPGs of all time. I never tire of creating characters and playing through this or Fallout 2. Fallout 3 and New Vegas are wonderful in their own right, but I still think the first two games are the best of the series. A spectacular world to get lost in, full of interesting characters, a great story, and plenty of random events. I will never forget this game.
If you have issues with graphics/color corruption like I did, here's the fix.
Once that is done, save it as "falloutw.bat" and put it in the fallout directory with the falloutw.exe. This is a batch file that will turn off the explorer every time you start the game and turn it back on once you end it, which should fix the color isssues.
Also, if you're interested, there's also a high resolution patch available. Just search for "Fallout HD patch" and you shouldn't have trouble finding it.
