Fallout 3 - PC, Xbox 360, PS3 - 2008

If you have played the previous series, playing this, you’ll probably end up with a question like this: “is this what I expected?” well actually no, the game has almost the same story with the previous ones, and fallout 3 has some minor problems, but lets take them all one by one.

Starting the game, you’ll feel it real, playing as a child, as a teen and as an adult, in encounters every time you succeed a vats finishing shot your enemies’ heads pop-off or you dismember them and so on, while attempting a skill(like hack) you actually attempt the skill in a “mini-game” you actually do something and take the risk on your own, and if you fail you can’t try again (except if you have a certain perk), the graphic are cool. Your mission is to find your father, who is a runaway citizen from vault 101 which human created to keep them safe from radiation, no one would enter or leave vault 101. Following your dad you end up in a huge wasteland, wondering around and ask information about your dads’ position. You’ll enter in many towns, you chose to help people (good karma) or harm people (bad karma), but the problem is: IT DOESN’T MATTER IF IT’S A GOOD KARMA OR BAD! You can actually change your karma in an instance just by doing some minor repeatable quests, so the whole karma system is ****.

Out in the wastelands you’ll encounter random enemies. So you have this first person view or third person view, you aim and shoot, and there is the V.A.T.S. system. A system that by pressing one button you stop the time, and you have the ability to choose certain parts of your enemy (like torso, head, arms), select how many times you want to hit, and then the computer takes the control of your player and it takes the shots for you. The slow motion graphics and the zoom and the nice point of view actions is something fascinating, but imagine in a fps game the special combat action is to freeze the time and to leave the computer do everything, and yes computer has a better change of hitting the target, and I think it will increase the possibility of a critical strike. And the item system, while encountering enemies you can press another button, and the time stops AGAIN, you can heal yourself, buff up yourself, change weapon, and there you go! a new look.

Ok the items, the majority of the items are useless pieces of junk but most of them are very expensive from ashtrays to conductors. When you kill an enemy, you can take everything from them and then you can violate their bodies, but anyway, you have a weigh capacity, and after killing 5 raiders, you are full and you walk really slow and you can’t fast traveler to a city, so you have to throw something, go back to the city, store the items, come back and take the others, this is NOT fun. Then you probably say “why hell you take those items” well if you won’t take them you’ll have no money to repair, buy ammo, etc. From the other hand the game allow you to kill anyone, you can actually massacre the whole city and take EVERYTHING but you will lose karma (something you don’t care) and you lose quest (= a huge amount of exp).

Skills and perks, skills are essential, and as a good role-playing game you’ll have to choose 3-4 main skills to advance. You can choose to use small guns and hack computers, picklock and science and the list goes on, but you can’t have them all balanced, actually the game always has 2-3 options, like if you can’t picklock the strongbox, you can hack the computer and unlock it from there, and if you have balanced skills then you will end up doing nothing. You can choose one perk per level, perks is like feat in D&D something bonus, basically more skill points. Perks can lead to a good combination of perks and skills mixed up, there is a good amount of perks for every type of a character you wanna be.

Npc and every day life, THEY ARE TERRIBLE, you can actually go to everyone’s house and steal anything you want in front of their own eyes, and they will do nothing to stop you, and then you talk to them and they are like “hey my friend, did you find your dad yet?” not to mention the pickpocket thing, the assassination, you can almost kill one by one each citizen in a town and citizens DON’T CARE about it. And your enemies are like 3 types? There are super mutants, orcs in rpg language, raiders, bandits in rpg language and some annoying radiation **** “animals”.

My personal opinion is that after playing a while, its kind of feels like a routine, encountering the same enemies, talking to the same voices, visiting the same wasteland fields. And the worse is that the game has NO bosses, there are some mini bosses whom you’ll enjoy, but there are no main bosses, and I was waiting for a great boss and I saved all my nukes, just to find NOTHING. Fallout 3 has some absolutely pointless and stupid skills, imagine a wasteland full of creature with radiation, and there is Jackie Chan trying to save the world?! With what kind of logic would a man fist fight some gigantic mutants, or gargantuan ants FULL OF RADIATION, and not only the idea, but each mutant has a MINIGUN with him. Or there is melee weapon skill, almost the same thing, but there are no good melee weapons in fallout 3, there are some kind of swords, but then you’ll come up with a common weapon called the ripper, which is more effective than any other sword. And the ripper (a one-handed chainsaw sword) strikes so fast, that the melee skill is USELESS. The game tried to put music, which sucks btw, and the music never change, you’ll go into combat, you will go fatal life but the music remains the same, something in modern gaming is bad. To sum up, if you enjoyed playing the old fallout games, you will enjoy this one, if you like oblivion (people says that fallout 3 is oblivion with guns) you will probably enjoy it too. This game could be better, vats system really takes you out of the fps gaming. I enjoyed fallout by killing EVERYONE.



8/10

Very nice review Orathac, I was wondering how long it would take until someone review this game. It's certainly a pretty good game, but there certainly are some obvious negatives, which I think you did a good job of mentioning, as they are there and easy to see.

Very very good Review. I agree with most if not all of the Points made in it. It is a fantastic game which has its downfalls but what game doesn't!

Nice :D!

interesting review. does the VATS system break up the flow of the gameplay? coz you have to pause time to make decisions of which parts to target right? do you have unlimited time to choose which part to aim at in VATS?

Orathac
08-12-2008, 11:34 PM
do you have unlimited time to choose which part to aim at in VATS?

Yes. It really takes you out of a fps game, and the music won’t help either (ok this may sound stupid, but believe me, it is a hole), you won’t feel the danger of actually dying. IMO it is impossible to die in this game (well probably because in the pc version there is only normal mode but anyway)
if you want to buy this game, first download a demo, play it, and u like it buy it, or download it :p

Anyway I am not saying its a bad game, i know why VATS is there, and if you have played the previous you'll probably know too, but its not what i (personally) expected.


I’ll write more reviews, thank you cw for posting it, thank you guys for your kind words.

Hi,

What do you mean here: (well probably because in the pc version there is only normal mode but anyway)

Are you refering to the difficulty level? because there is a Hard & Very Hard mode...
Please clarify..

:-)

:-)

yeah i searched the option and there is hard and very hard, well i thought like all games before you start the game you choose the difficulty so when i didn't find it i thought there wasn't
anyway there is indeed difficulty selection

but i know a lot of people who claim that it is already to hard on normal mode in which i disagree

anyway i hope that i explained

Ok I understand wht you are saying but in all honesty you haven't thought out your character evolution very well if you have this issue.

If you increase your strength you can carry more in weight
If you increase your repair ability you can repair guns and apparel during your mission. This helps because if you pick up 3 10mm pistols and one or two are in bad condition (as they usually are) you can combine all 3 into one using repair giving you one gun that is in good condition and therefore deals more damage AND giving you 2 guns weight less to carry. The same goes for the apparel and multitude of duplicate wepons you will pick up. If you plan ahead like this (remember planning ahead should be vital as it is a survival game) then you won't have the issue of having to treck forth and back every two minutes. I often collect a huge amount of items each quest I do and when i finish I fast travel back to megaton and store what I want to keep and sell what I want to use. At the moment I am level 6 and only have 1035 caps and I don't have any items for my house. If I had vendored all of the stuff I have stored I could probably have a pharmacy and maybe even a tool bench but the bottom line is if i keep storing items when i do have enough for my workbench I will have plenty of items to make wepaons out of which i can either use or even just sell for a bigger price than the raw materials would have sold for.

Also if you are complaining about your income why not take up barter improvement since you'll get more caps for the items that you bring back meaning you'll have to carry less for the same amount of caps.


The one thing i find hard to understand is your critism of an rpg game not being realistic....

Final Fantasy is one of the biggest rpg games ever and you see people fight with a sword against giant unstoppable forces of nature with fire coming out of them etc and yet no-one bats an eyelid over that. RPG's imo are generally unrealistic and the amount of depth this game gives whilst ginving you a new perspective (fps) and considering it's pretty much oblivion turned futuristic I think this game is awesome.

To me this was not a review from a fair gamer but sounded more like the review of a critic who was looking for reasons to hate the game.

Orathac
06-02-2009, 09:54 PM
i see what you mean, and to be honest i did critism the game so that's why i gave more score than i originally wanted, for a newcomer gamer, he will like this game, for me, the person who played one and two, this wasn't enought.

i haven't played fallout 1 and 2 that much but i really like the game, then comes fallout 3 with its unique perspective. I have played the game and the FPS concept is nice as well as its quests and the idea of repairing your weapon not to mention the VATS which makes the game easy to play.

The only thing i don't like is the storyline. it's very short, at first i didn't believe that you can finish the game within the day but it is possible if you follow the main quests and you know your way around. the tunes are catchy at first but i got sick of it after 4 hrs of listening to it over and over again so i turned of the radio (lol)

over all its a nice game and i hope they make a sequel to this maybe or fallout 4?

im not much of a hard core rpg player but still i enjoyed this game

it should not have been an FPS. if you're going to do FPSRPG, then for god sake do it properly (deus ex and system shock 1/2) or just go fully fledged and make it an actual fun FPS, like bioshock.

most of you know my opinion on fallout 3, i don't need to tell you that i think bethesda bungled it to a huge degree

Fallout 3 is a very good game and one that I own. But the main problem is the fact that you can't carry on after completing the game, unlike Bethesda's last game Oblivion. Also the lack of quests is a problem, I think that they rushed this game unlike Oblivion which took 6 years to produce where as Fallout 3 only took 2 years to produce.

You can continue the game now with Broken Steel. D'uh.

You can always buy the expansion pack if it's a problem, only it won't be out till July, which would probably fit in with your timing, that's if you really want it.

Now I have played the two big games in reverse order (I played Fallout 3 before I played Oblivion) and here is my take in comparing the two

What Fallout has on Oblivion

The story has more immersion and feels more realistic
Graphics are better
Gameplay feels less wooden and requires more strategy in combat
Characters have more variety in personality
The atmosphere when traveling is more fun and environment more enjoyable to walk through

What Oblivion has over Fallout

Significantly more side and unmarked quests (I would say about 4 times the amount)
More weapon variety (I like being able to tailor equipment to my specific needs)
The enemies are more entertaining and less stereotype compared to say the President Eden

What they both lack

BOSS FIGHTS OF ANY KIND!!!!

Giving some guy a cool name does not make him any better then the rest. Umbra for example for all the hype around her took me less then 2 minutes to beat at level 20 and I am a close range fighter. Also making a Huge Monster like the Super Mutant Behemoth so strong doesn't negate the fact that I can run backwards and drop him without being touched.

Overall Oblivion has more to do and Fallout has more believability and enjoyable story
So where to put the money? They are both about equal in my book. I love both games and that comes from someone who hates 99% of all FPS games made post DOOM 2.

If you can only buy one I say buy the one that suits you more. If your into fantasy, buy Oblivion. If you are into Sci-Fi, buy Fallout 3.

Interesting review. Definitely worth playing for any RPG fan out there although the game gets a bit repetitive as you get to the final goal. I didn't even expected when i finished the game. There is no culmination of any kind in this game. And yeah i agree with you about the bosses. I also saved all the big nukes and weapons for some sort of last boss or something. The environment was superb although the engine obviously needed a bit more work (try walking cross). All in all i agree with your score of 8/10.

I played Fallout for about five hours and although I was impressed with the graphics and everything else I just didn't enjoy it. It wasn't fun to play and I wasn't intrigued by the storyline at all. The only part I enjoyed was whilst I was still locked up in 101. As soon as I got out it just wasn't at all enjoyable at all. I got as far as the second floor of a hotel I believe and into a room that had about five huge super mutants that I had to try and kill... again, just not fun. There are loads of them and it's just walk to this place, kill mutants, walk to this place, kill mutants and was the same throughout.

It looks pretty and swish but playing it didn't give me a feeling that I wanted to put it back into my console and play it again and again. It seems like more "hey, look how much we can put in a game, its huge but samey throughout" rather than "hey, look at this game, it's really fun to play whilst also looking really good".

Needless to say, I sold it on. Bought for £15. Sold for £13.50. Not a huge loss. Glad I tried it out at least...

Fallout 3 is a special videogame. It's an open-world role-playing game that delivers an experience unlike anything on the market right now. It's a gripping and expansive showcase of how much depth and excitement can be packed into one videogame, and it does justice to the Fallout franchise. This sequel is the first made by Bethesda, the developers responsible The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. You don't need to play any of their past games or any previous Fallout games to enjoy this one. It stands on its own as a memorable and well-crafted videogame.

Brian the game has already one plenty of awards, including lots of websites and magazines Game of the Year.

And Xbox360Don, I would say the best way to answer that is to say how used you are to playing similiar kinds of games on PC. Personally I wouldn't try it, would just seem awkward, but if you enjoy your PC based gaming, that it's worth a go, otherwise I'd stick to console.

Well there aren't that many side quests, probably around 15 to 20, and nearly all of them are initiated by just talking to someone in a town, they are pretty easy to find, providing you've found the location though. But I'd imagine at least half aren't a challenge.

Hahaha well I'm still going through the story, but I purposely have done most of the exploring first, and left the story stuff till later on, knowing that it doesn't take long to finish. Probably be carrying on with it myself in an hour or so, and see what happens. At a good point too.

The game ends with the story if you don't have the Broken Steel DLC, in case you didn't know. And it has the most godawful ending ever.

Okay - after doing immensely bad at CoD4, I have decided to give World at War a bash. If I do bad - I guess it is back to Fallout.

Skills and perks, skills are essential, and as a good role-playing game you’ll have to choose 3-4 main skills to advance. You can choose to use small guns and hack computers, picklock and science and the list goes on, but you can’t have them all balanced, actually the game always has 2-3 options, like if you can’t picklock the strongbox, you can hack the computer and unlock it from there, and if you have balanced skills then you will end up doing nothing. You can choose one perk per level, perks is like feat in D&D something bonus, basically more skill points. Perks can lead to a good combination of perks and skills mixed up, there is a good amount of perks for every type of a character you wanna be.

I completely disagree with you reviewer! This game to me has been amazing so far, I have had no annoyances yet (almost done the game - lv 28). Also if you find that the VATS system takes you out of the FPS feel, dont use it, i hardly do, only when i want to see some nice visuals. Also, the game is pretty hard your first time, it's not like its simple and you can just beat it in a day. The amount of detail that went into this leveling is great too. The unarmed skill is only useless because you dont like to use it. My first time playing it I used fists quite a bit.

I Don't agree with having bosses in RPGs either, it's just not logical to me. Although they should have more tough enemies, like groups of them. Anyways you really miss the point of this game. They really captured what it feels like to be in a place that literally has barely anything. Your constantly rummaging through things to find caps, weapons, ammo, it truly is an post-apocalyptic world. Many times throughout the game I caught myself getting frustrated cause its so hard to find things sometimes, then you stumble across a goldmine so to speak and your like "YES!!!!" Anyways I agree with you on a couple of the cons in there but other than that, I love this game.

But bosses in RPG's are a staple of the genre, they would be missing a core ingrediant should you remove them, and say replace them with just larger numbers of regular enemies or something. That moment when you see a save sphere and await what boss is coming, that's one thing that draws me to RPG's, in a game like this, yes they aren't needed, but for classic/traditional ones I think they are very important.

I wouldn't even say that this game has boss fights to be honest, and that's the way it should be. And I don't think the game is particularly tough at all, with or without bosses.

Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Duper Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec engineering. Yet one conclusive morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the cogent and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons unknown. Leaving the only home you've ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.

Yes. It really takes you out of a fps game, and the music won’t help either (ok this may sound stupid, but believe me, it is a hole), you won’t feel the danger of actually dying. IMO it is impossible to die in this game (well probably because in the pc version there is only normal mode but anyway)
if you want to buy this game, first download a demo, play it, and u like it buy it, or download it :p


Actually you can turn on god mode, but you'll need to use the console

A mediocre review at best, sorry to say. I'd like to point out that being able to change your standing in terms of Karma any time you'd like doesn't make the system ****. It just allows you to construct the kind of character you'd like without restrictions. Also I'd like to note, that other games with Good/Bad systems allow you to do the exact same thing. The flaws in the weight system aren't a big deal either. You've become overweight, so drop something. Then you simply fast travel, sell, and fast travel back. Takes no more than two to four minutes and of course you benefit from it. So what's the big hassle?

"Npc and every day life, THEY ARE TERRIBLE, you can actually go to everyone’s house and steal anything you want in front of their own eyes, and they will do nothing to stop you", perhaps a flaw in your game? Because that's not true in the least. You steal something, they'll either start attacking you or find someone to attack you. Also, if you commit a murder in front of another citizen, they will, in fact, do something about it. You mentioned there are only approximately three variations of enemies. Again, not true. Some more examples: Boatflies, Centaurs, Death Claws, Enclave, Mirelurks, Giant Ants, MoleRats, Sentry Bots, Slavers, and several more.

I don't see how it can be a routine either. Despite the generic wasteland, there are almost two hundred locations. Just to be clear, there are in fact, bosses. There may be very little of them, but they exist. For one, there are about four or five Behemoths in the game, also I recall fighting a one of a kind, Giant Queen Fire Ant. These are all main flaws that you pointed out that are honestly false to say the least.

Enough about the game, moving on to the actual review. A few spelling errors, not a big deal at all, but it's fair to point them out. You could have listed some Pros/Cons at the end, to sum up your points. You listed very few good qualities of the game and focused on the down sides, yet still rewarded it with an 8/10. I'm a huge fan of Fallout 3 and I'd like to see it get a fair review, thanks.

After reading all the positive comments I decided to dust this game off and give it a go. I loved the world, liked the RPG elements and combat (VATS is a lot of fun with the bloody mess perk!) but at 29hrs in I've finished the story line. I was under the impression this game was epically huge and the story was awesome?

Don't get me wrong thats a fairly long game and I'm sure there's loads more side quests to find but I followed the storyline and did any sub quests along the way from people I met and I did explore a bit as well. I'm just kind of disappointed by the main storyline. It was really short and there was no build up or anything it was just find dad, found dad, turn on purifier, yay we did it??? Come one! I'm glad I wandered off and did side missions and the wasteland survival guide among other quests as if I'd gone through just the main story I honestly think it would've lasted a few hours.

Don't get me wrong Liberty Prime is a cool robot but walking behind him as he basically completes the final mission for me is kinda a massive let down. I'm so glad I have the GOTY edition as I can continue and maybe go out and explore a bit and do the extra content but without that I would've been pretty disappointed. I honestly was expecting more story and the ending cinematic really took me by surprise, I didn't expect the Enclave to just roll over so easy and be like "oh well they win". Would the game of continued after that cinematic without the add on pack anyway or would it have ended? Just wondering cause that would have sucked!

Don't get me wrong as I said I really enjoyed the world of Fallout so I'm not bashing the game as such just I'm a little let down by the narrative. Mass Effect 2 and GTA4 took similar amount of time to complete and it was all story which gave me a point to invest in the game. I just found Fallout's DLC and side missions more appealing than the main story line and surely that shouldn't be the case?

What does everyone else think?

To be honest, it sounds like you would prefer New Vegas. I thought the story was lacking something too in F3, but in NV there is just so much more to do, if you complete all the side quests in that in 30 hours you've done some serious playing. I loved F3, but preferred NV overall i'd say.

Jenesix
20-05-2011, 09:54 AM
As i said theres probably loads more to do and I will be giving it a crack. But like most games like this I do a story mission then a load of side ones and then do another story mission as it usually opens up more side quests but it just didn't work for me I guess. I presume I was meant to ignore the story, go off into the wasteland and aimlessly wander til i find stuff then eventually do the main game? I just prefer having a purpose like find the declaration of independence and on my travels discover loads of cool places, it gives me purpose to get around them or through them to my goal. I like freedom of choice and all that but i like a bit of direction to. For example point me to a mission but let me get there my own way and discover cool stuff, when the game does this its great but it just didn't push me to explore the whole map and I'm not one for randomly walking around all day looking for action. I would like 50 hours of gameplay not 10 taken up of hiking is all :)

I feel i've probably missed a load of stuff which sucks but I was hoping as I progressed the main story I'd be directed towards some of it as I met new people but I guess I needed to go out and find it all. Bit overwhelming! I think I will still give Fallout NV a shot, might be better for me.

I absolutely love Fallout 3, but when i play it i cant help but compare it to Oblivion which is produced by the same company, and i much prefer Oblivion. I think the story and gameplay throughout Fallout 3 is amazing but i think the possibilities in the game are limited of that compared to Oblivion. It would be much better if you could become alot more involved with the factions in fallout like you can in Oblivion.

This is the thing i didn't like about F3. They seemed to spend a lot of effort in making a storyline that would compel your character to follow it, and yet make it completely optional? Seems sort of contradictory really. Who the hell would leave the vault intending to find their dad, but just go wander around aimlessly instead in real life?

If you like "purpose", then maybe you wouldn't enjoy New Vegas' story line. Basically, you've been shot in the head and the main story revolves around you finding the guy who shot you, but you don't have to do it at all if you don't want. There is way way more side questions than in F3 and they are way more entertaining too. However, i did reach a point recently where my quest list is insanely long and i just don't know what to do next. My advise would be to do quests wen you get them, don't let them all pile up else it gets confusing.

Really fun game! Loved it so much I bought Fallout New Vegas when it came out and was a bit disappointed to be honest! Fallout 3 is definitely one of the better games of late! Loved the quirkiness and the gameplay-style (even if you end up relying on VATS alot of the time)! Definitely a good game! Very nice review too! :D

Jenesix
11-08-2011, 12:57 PM
even if you end up relying on VATS alot of the time!

I went back to Fallout 3 last night after having a few weeks break (I had completed it and now have DLC packs to do) and I am currently going through Point Lookout. One thing I must say is you get your money worth for DLC in this game, the area is completely different to the rest of Fallout 3 which is a nice change and it's literally huge I am impressed, loads to do. Can't complain as other than Mass Effect this is one of the rare occasions where I feel DLC is worthy of being paid for, great addition to the game.

However I have finally worked out what my issue is with the game…..

I usually play it in a customised over the shoulder zoomed (think resident evil 5) sort of viewpoint as the top half of the characters animations are fine its just the walking, jumping and basically anything leg related that is poor to look at. But I automatically loaded the game in first person and forgot to change it so carried on as usual. What I realised was I wasn't naturally relying on VATS like usual and I started playing the game like any FPS title and taking on the enemies normally as it was easier to aim…..or so I thought!

I've realised my issue with this game is that outside VATs, the aiming / shooting system is shockingly poor. Hit areas are all over the place and actually connecting with an enemy on target is near on impossible! Coupled with poor character animations your onto some real pot luck gameplay when shooting in real time. I ended up just startling enemies, backing up and hip firing a shotgun as lining up shots to the head and firing seemed pointless as nothing really made much of a difference.

This brings me to my second problem, enemy AI, I never realised how poor it actually is! Every enemy in the game whether your crouched or not randomly is alerted to your presence regardless of line of sight within a certain distance and just come charging at you head on. No use of cover, no team tactics, flanking or anything just turn, run and shoot. This poor AI backed up by poor shooting mechanics really is my biggest gripe with this game which is a real shame as aesthetically it's very pleasing, the environments and settings are cool and some missions are great. It's just surprising when you stop relying on VATs for every fight how bad it's core mechanic (as it is primarily a shooter) actually are. I will carry on regardless as it is a good game don't get me wrong and you can't knock how ambitious it is, especially for a console title. But I'm surprised I seem to be A) the only person who doesn't think this game is incredible and B) the only person to have noticed this frankly massive flaw in the core gameplay.

All I can say is thank god for VAT's! They've successfully managed to hide sub-par game design, I'm almost impressed!

I loved this game traded it in and bought it three times, I do think your a bit harsh with some points, the gameplay is a little stiff particularly with the shooting but the level up system and amount of locations plus the add-ons makes this game pretty diverse. The point of the game is progression and being helpless in certain situations, the are other melee weapons that were not stated. Other than that nice review

Plus points for map size and add ons I agree. But fundamentally it is still built around a FPS mechanic and this very flawed. If it wasn't for the VATS system, it be horrendous.

Based on the screenshots, I may define this game as my favoite type of action game. LOL, the interface seems to make players feel like shoot with a collimator.

One of my favorite games, having played the previous 2 titles. The only problem I had with it was the low replay-ability factor.

Wouldn't say the replay factor is that low, though it depends on how thorough you are in your main playthrough, because it's not like there aren't enough places to explore or quests to tackle.

Ive played it through once with awesome amazing karma, I wanna play it through again so I might do the neutral as i think itll be harder to achieve.

Yeah neutral playthroughs, in a lot of games), tend to be the hardest to achieve, largely because it's so easy to keep sticking to a good/bad playthrough, rather than a balance of both.

Best way with Fallout though is probably to start off with good karma, and then be evil to go back to neutral, because from experience it's so much easier to kill a random village and turn bad, than to try and make people like you once you've killed their kids or something hahaha.
