In past posts on various threads and one sig, i made it quite clear i had no love for Fallout 3, hated it's dreary look, hated the V.A.T.S. system and hated taking a second chance on it.
However, after a drunken debate with a friend of mine last weekend brought on about people dismissing games that are great way too quickly, he pointed out two things that may change my mind about the game.
1. I didn't have a big ass HD telly the previous two times, making the game look about five times more dreary than it should and rendering a lot of text difficult to read.
2.I have a child now and since then, my gaming time has become more enjoyable through patient play and playing fewer games at one time., hell, i got 11 Plats since he was born when i had a measly one in 2 and a half years before that.
So i found Fallout 3 GOTY Edition for a measly £5 today and what do you know, i actually started enjoying it, i understand it better, it looks better ( not brilliant but you know.... good ) and i already feel more involved in it than before.
It may take a while to get deeper into it but i will say this much, i no longer hate Fallout 3. Maybe you should give that game you couldn't quite get into another shot and see if you missed something? I'd like to see the results.
