Fallout 3 in 6 Hours or Less

IGN managed to snag six hours of alone time with Fallout 3, exploring the southern region.

Washington DC is barely more than a pile of rocks in Fallout 3. Bombed out buildings house snipers that make your life hell and many of the roads are blocked off by rubble. The easiest way to get around in most cases is to use the subway tunnels. Of course, then you'll have to deal with the aforementioned ghouls. The outdoor area is home to numerous super mutants, massive hulking enemies that don't take kindly to humans. I'm sure there's some reward to exploring the area since a number of famous buildings and structures are still intact, but I barely lasted long enough to duck into Rivet City.

Rivet City is an entire living complex built into the heart of a grounded aircraft carrier. It's got everything from a marketplace (where I found the Fat Boy nuke launcher for the first time) to a chapel and more. I only explored the city for about 30 minutes, but I was still able to find a good number of side quests. None were cooler than the one I found that involved the retrieval of the Declaration of Independence. America may have crumbled in the nuclear war, but that doesn't mean your patriotism had to.​
Pros:
-some areas almost too dangerous for the player
-city built in an aircraft carrier

Cons:
-ridiculously powerful uberweapon found at a marketplace within a few hours of playing
-feral ghouls
