Fallout takes a cue from the world of Mad Max and puts you in the setting of apocalyptic United States. Surrounded by charred rubble and radioactive wildlife you roam through the country helping out random people and fighting off bandits. The title's pride rests in the vast open world designed to make you feel empty and lonely. Your interaction with others play a big part of the gameplay as how you respond to requests can determine your reputation and whether or not they will help you out on your quests. Although there isn't a predictable schedule of how often new releases for Fallout drop, the franchise's die-hard fans have no problem waiting for a new chapter.
