    First off I gotta say that I see F1 as not only the best fallout game but also my favourite cRPG, it was already 20 years old when I got to try it after playing F3. Its only after playing F1 that I realized the wasted potential of F3.

    I kept hearing people saying F2 was the big fallout game a bit like BG2 vs BG so I was super exited to jump in it. Sadly its been quite a disappointment so far. Ive been through all of the big towns and was shocked by the lack of interesting content.

    NPCs are dull and mostly feel one dimensional, talking heads are boring, dialogue is bare bone, quests are dull and super linear/fedex style, town themes are dull, level design and map layout are uncreative, written lore is almost nonexistent... this is hardly a proper fallout game, or even a proper cRPG like people claim.

    I get it that F2 is isometric and stuff but the overall design is so poor (especially combat encounters) that it fails to use it's potential. And the whole tone of the game is such a joke that I dont see how it could ever be called a classic, even Postal 2 wasnt as retarded as what I have seen in F2.

    I know that F3 isnt a classic fallout but I find it to be more in the spirit of the series than F2 which is a total joke.

    Edit: If you want to troll better then provide arguments for FO3. It’s pretty obvious you’re trolling when you can’t even think of a concrete positive thing to say about FO3.

    Alright so the hate on F3 is also strong here. I didnt intend on trolling really I just found it to be very weak compared to other cRPGs. F3 had a great atmosphere and instances of C&C I found it closer to F1 than F2.

    I mean F2 parodizes homeless people acting like zombies as seen in a fucking South Park episode. A porn studio, casinos, etc... The wasteland even got tourists. F3 does dumb shit but somehow keeps a serious tone overall.

    A guy in NCR, the settlement representing order, blows himself up for no reason.

    Doc Jubilee is said to be a highly skilled doctor but is depicted as completely retarded when he wants to amputate our healthy leg. And its pretty much all the dialogue he offers. Compare him to the Doc in Megaton and tell me F2 isnt largely inferior.

    Just so everybody knows, this same guy went to No Mutants Allowed and asked the same thing. What happened next was nearly a month of him arguing on how factually terrible Fallout 2 is and how much better Fallout 3 is. Then he proceeded to call people retards and tell them to fuck off when they started to disagree with him. After a few days, he started to put people on his ignore list and even went as far to start reporting posts.

    So yes, this guy is a major troll.

    Oh god this guy. He has been running a similar thread on NMA since the end of February and when people bring up reasons why Fallout 3 is a way worse game than Fallout 2 (or why it was never a true Fallout to begin with) he comes up with counter bullshit arguments. (you should read the nonsense he wrote on why the NPCs of FO3 were better than those of FO2)
    Oh and he barely played FO2 BTW, most of his complaints seem to do that he is pretty shitty at the game.

    BTW, you took on Hassknecht's challenge, didn't you?
    Now you are going to find out that NMA is pretty tame compared to the codex.

    NMA are a bunch of dumb sheeps following a bandwagon of hate on F3 while most of them havent played a cRPG outside F1/2 and most of them rank F2/F:NV over F1 which is the only true fallout. Those guys rank Morrowind as a cRPG just to give you an idea. Some dude tried to claim that F3 was garbage because your mother dies in the intro and you cant RP as a character who has a living mother. Some tried to justify the porn studio. Their defense mechanisms kicked in real fast when I brought up facts proving that F2 is weaker than F3 on many aspects.

    So far people here are like aggressive apes so this thread probly wont go anywhere, at least the poll results make more sense, at NMA F3 would literally get 100% of the votes.

    ''Now you are going to find out that NMA is pretty tame compared to the codex.'' Being untame on the internet doesnt make you cool bro, it just makes discussion much harder.

    ''you should read the nonsense he wrote on why the NPCs of FO3 were better than those of FO2'' Megaton's Doc vs Doc Jubilee. Enough said.

    2 > 3 but this doesn't mean too much. Fallout 2 is a bugged, unbalanced, unfinished game with a repetitive combat system. Fallout 3 had all the problems of 2 but the combat system is ever worse. Both sucked and need a lot of fan-made patches and mods to be playable.
