Fallout 3 is the worst game I have played in my 10+ years of gaming.

Okay let me set out and say I am not an RPG fan, I never played a final fantasy game, I'm just not attracted to them. So I have gamefly and F3 has been on the back of my mind for some time, and I have a little time to burn before red dead redemption drop so I put it on the queue.

I really like the whole art direction and setting of the game, that's really what attracted me. Also seeing a trailer about VATS seemed to really hook me in. So I got through the vault 101 part and it was neat and all but the birthday party could have been about 15 minutes shorter, whatever I got through it.

 

So first step out of the vault and I have a decent handle on the pip boy by now, so i head towards my first objective. Low and behold I run into a pack of mutant rats and rabbid dogs.... with a BB GUN AND ABOUT 11 ROUNDS OF PEASHOOTER(that in reality ACTUALLY shoot peas and skittles!! I found this out in the vault when I murdered the overseer and eventually ran out of ammo while he stood helplessly in a corner like a retard). So I get murdered by these mutants about 5 times in a row, each time adding my skill points or whatever and starting from scratch out the door. I try a different route and finally make it to the first compound. I see the robot thing, and as the door opened and I was just so inclined to give him a wack with my batan, and whataya know he and his alien friends shoot bombs, fire, and one-hit lasers and destory me in .26 seconds.

 

Round 6, lets try this again, right out the door, AGAIN.

So about an hour later I get the info for moriaty from a senseless 30 minute journey to and from without being able to find a sprint button. He gives me my info and I head on out. BTW before I head out I figured I would stockpile on some peashooter ammo seeing that I only had five rounds. I go to the spot and what a joy, she only sells bb guns and pistol ammo, because I'm CLEARLY in need of that. So I just start stealing stuff for no reason, swipeswipeswipeswipeswipeswipeswipe and mr. bad guy just pulls out an AR and starts pounding me: I go through VATS with everything in my arsenal(wat a flawed system without anything that does ANY damage) giving him headshots, pounding him with the batan; i'm all up in his face just beating him while he's reloading his POS that he's shot about 2 mags at me. Lets just say I didn't succeed. So i respawn and I'm out for revenge, this time I go up the stairs and oh look random badguy#2 comes down with a pump shotty for the insta-kill! THIRD TIME around I go sneak up stairs(apparently these "perks" or whatever give you nothing because I had put my stealth all the way up to like 40 right out of the vault) and I go upstairs and start snatching again, no one in sight. And then magically they suspect something and come running up the stairs blasting, and I'm dead. FOURTH Try the place is locked for some unknown reason. (and whats with the terminal hacks? they don't tell you at all what letter or what spot you got correct as promised, what a waste of time).

 

Anyways I give up on trying to grab some big"ger" guns And i head out on my (once again 30 minute) quest to the radio spot. I come across a whole squad of mercs who obviously I'm not going to mow down with a pea shooter if I can't murder a dog with one. So I try vats on the one girl and everytime it shoots the cover in front of me, wasting my oh so invaluable pea and skittle ammo. I die and give it another go, I end up dipping back into the water to get some relief from these scoundrals. They follow me in and one guy just stands there in the water watching me and the girl duke it out with no gun( i "VAT-ED" her arm) and standing there by waters edge with a damn crow bar and I'm beating her endlessly, she has literally like 1 bar of health and homeboy in the back wakes up to finish me off with his pistol that no doubt, would have been absolutely zero value to me had I actually succeeded somehow in taking these fools down.

 

And that's the end of that. Basically this game would be decent and maybe actually fun if the weapons had ANY power to them(which I'm not trying to play for 30 hours to unlock the big stuff).

Thanks for saying it's the worst game YOU have played and not just the worst game ever. Lots of people including myself loved this game (at least until the GOTY edition) but it's certainly not for everyone.

My questions is why you kept using the BB gun? There is a bat, some batons and you can even get a couple guns before you go out of the vault.

 

Oh wait let me guess that you thought this game would be as mindless as a FPS.

I for one thought it was an excellent game.  Probably one of my top 10 games all time!

Fallout 3 is one of my favorites (and only platinum) ... BTW I found that the baseball bat was a much more effective weapon to use when you first step out of the vault. the bb gun is worthless...

Sounds like the issue I had in Oblivion, Bethesda's other brainchild. I'd kill someone out in the middle of nowhere and head back to town to find out the Guards were waiting to lynch me. The animals must have been telling on me cause otherwise, there is no excuse for them to know that I killed Joe Nobody in the middle of a forest that I probably couldn't find a 2nd time The NPCs are an annoying bunch.

Having read the entire original post, I think I'm going to replay Fallout 3 for the umpteenth time now and make myself a BB Gun specialist.

 

Seriously though, there's no shame in scaling down the difficulty. Running around one-shotting everyone can be fun. Especially robots. I hate those jerks.

Well damn that would have been a lot of help. I can realize the potential, especially with VATS, if the weapons did any damage. I seriously didn't even know there were difficulty levels, most games ask you before the start. Mine must have been on super extreme impossible or something.

My ? is why you like to insult people before doing your homework. I clearly stated that I was using the pistol and beating people endlessly with the batan. But please go on, I could do this all day with your brainless responses.

I guess a lot of people aren't getting that a pea shooter refers to a handgun.
