this game is amazing. ill try to explain it but the game speaks for itself. its just fun. its much better than new vegas. new vegas just addded to many complex ideas like the different gangs and how in some cities your praised and in others your hated. i feel like in that game i didnt know if i was doing a story mission or not. ive beatin this game like a million times and everytime i find something new and enjoy it just as much as the first playthrough. this game is a good, well made, piece of art. you really do feel like your a wastelander. you dont have infinite amo, you have to go find it yourself and preserve it which can make for some interesting situations. personally i have no idea how this game has a gamefly rating of 8.2. this game deserves a 10/10, and everyone else who has played it that i know agrees with me. when skyrim came out everyone made a huge deal, but personally i think fall out 3 is bethesda's crown jewl. just rent it and see for yourself.
