So why play Fallout 1 and 2?
This is the beginning of the series. If you're a fan of Fallout and haven't even touched 1 and 2, you aren't a fan and this isn't like "oh bro, go play arena and daggerfall or you aint a fan of elder scrolls! :p" You just like muh shooters and a bitch, Fuck you. You got to return to the beginning and experience two of the greatest RPGs of the 90s.
You can buy both games for either 10 bucks each or get the Fallout Classic Collection which also includes Tactics for 20.
I don't need to tell you which one to get and these games are always go on sale for like 5 dollars. The games include the Unofficial Patch and Resolution Patch that will allow your game to be played on modern resolutions. Just don't forget to click them on in the options.
Yes, the games are turn based and it's isometric. So what? The games are fun and involving. So much shit happens in this large landscape of mostly California and a little bit of Nevada. (funny that New Vegas is slightly off the map in 1.)
And even more, its modding community is still alive today. I even made a mod for 2.
But if you've never played Fallout 1 or 2. Here's a couple videos that will help you when starting the games.
Fallout: Et Tu
This project brings Fallout 1 into the engine of Fallout 2.
Replicates Fallout 1 in 2 almost 1:1.
Comes with the Hero Appearance mod integrated (Bald Dude, Long Hair Dude, Black Dude, Punk Girl).
Selected Fallout 2 weapons have been added (sparingly!) to the game world in ways that don't break the game balance.
Fallout 2 styled merchant inventory restocking (Optional).
Party members and generic NPCs can be pushed out of the way.
Party members level up and change their appearance based on worn armor.
Party members can be controlled in combat (Optional).
Automatic door opening and closing (Optional).
Traverse the wastes on your very own motorcycle (Optional)!
Continue playing after the main story has been completed (Optional).
Lots of bugfixes, making the game run more stable than even the original with patches.
