In my opinion i recommend Fallout New Vegas on steam. Not only is there plenty of mods to fix many problems in the game, the community is often helpful in fixing or modding the game. Not only this the modding community is still huge and will probably keep on being huge till way after Fallout 4 is released.

Seriously anyone who wants the full Fallout experience needs to get it on PC. Vanilla FO3/FO:NV is nowhere near the full experience you get when you start modding the game. You will be blown away with the amount of content and graphical improvements and bug fixes that the modding community has to offer. The games wouldn't be what they are without mods.

Not only that but you can play 1 and 2 and see where Fallout started.

Why is there so much hype around Fallout? Were the previous games that good or was it some kind of surprise announcement?

Unfortunately Bethesda are creating a walled-garden mod platform, and with paid mods we may not see the same vibrant community.

Pick up 3 and New Vegas if you're a fan of the style Fallout 4 had, but if you want to go far back, I have DRM-Free installers for Fallout 1 and 2 before they were pulled from GOG. I can send them to you if you'd like.

fallout 1 and 2 changed my life as a kid. 3 and NV are amazing--no, spectacular--games, but i definitely wonder if i'd like them quite as much if it weren't for nostalgia

Jesus this is a tough question.

If you can get into older games, give 1 and 2 a spin. The original company made a game that you won't forget and some of the stuff still gets referenced.

However if you just want to hop on in... I'd recommend Fallout 3. 3 has the better story, but New Vegas some new combat mechanics that won't feel right playing without.

You can add them though by modding. I recommend checking out Nexus Mods for all that stuff.... It's been too long since I modded 3 to speak on it. I'm actually playing New Vegas right now (for probably the 20th playthrough). You can add vehicles and make buildings too (but nowhere near as cool as 4's teaser looks.

Enjoy yourself man, I'd give anything to be able to play these over again with no memories of them.

To be honest, I never got around to playing the other Fallout games, so I'm really excited for a chance to jump into the series with Fallout 4. Especially knowing that it's got a November release, very much looking forward to this! :D

Ahh that's a good idea as they're on Steam sale right now. Appreciate the recommendation! I'll give Fallout 3 a try tonight.

I'm in the same boat as /u/Anon7309. I've been delaying, but I guess I should get on it already and /v/buildapc so I can finish 3 and New Vegas before 4 is released!

If not, we get Voat, reddit, tumblr, 4chan, whoever to make sure he gets everything in the divorce, if we have to steal it from her house.
