Developed by the same minds behind hit role-playing game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3 is an action-RPG that pits players against the mutant denizens of a post-nuke world. Your character is literally born into this apocalypse, having spent his entire life cooped up an underground bomb shelter called a “Vault.” Upon starting the game, you’ll experience the live birth of your character from the eyes of a newborn. You’ll learn to walk, look around, and pick up small objects all from the perspective of a toddler. Other sequences teach you to interact with playmates and pick your skill specialties, which will become important when you grow up and venture outside of the safety of the Vault. This birth-to-adulthood segment is a clever, intuitive way to introduce the control system — it’s much more immersive and interesting than a simple no-frills tutorial mode, and helps ground you in the unique universe of Fallout 3.
