    Let's rank your most to least favorite Fallout games, because everyone loves lists!

    This is of course restricted to the ones I've actually played, so there is no Tactics and no Brotherhood of Steel. The latter of which there never will be. Anyhow! Here is my list;

    Fallout: New Vegas
    Fallout: 2
    Fallout: 1
    Fallout: 3
    Fallout: 4

    Just for the record no I'm not one of those "Fallout 4 sux" people, but I do agree that of the 5 listed it is the weakest.

    Fallout 2
    Fallout NV + dlc (Honest Hearts was a bit meh, but the rest is excellent)
    Fallout 1
    Fallout 3
    Fallout Tactics
    Fallout 4

    Fallout: New Vegas
    Fallout Tactics
    Fallout Shelter
    Fallout 4
    Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel
    Fallout 3

    To be fair, I didn't get far into Fallout 4, so maybe it massively improves later on. Never played any DLC.

    The DLC to get in my opinion is Far Harbor. Aside from Stephen Russell voicing two key characters in the story, it also brings back some more roleplaying and choice on how to resolve quests. It's still hampered by FO4's awful dialog system, but at least Bethesda realized the short coming and tried to fix it.

    Fallout 4 main game gets worse and worse IMO, that's why it's last on my list. Haven't played the DLC though.

    I'm one of them rare people that actually favor 4 the most out of all games.
    Btw before anyone asks, no I haven't played 1, 2, BoS, or tactics. The old 2D games never interested me. I do know about the lore from those games and love that lore just as much as lore in 3, 4, and NV but just never played them.

    Never played Fallout 2. And, from a nowadays point of view, i don't dig part 1 too much either. Prefer the 3D titles.

    For the next Fallout, i hope Bethesda drops the generic faction quests, and only does relevant, and interesting quests. Oh, and the exaggerated hollywood style cut scenes don't have to be either. But, i guess, with nowadays audience, there's no way around it.

    havent played 4 obviously, and really have no inclination to. 3 is my top because I played it all the way till the end and at the time found it awesome, but I doubt I will ever replay it. New Vegas however I have done a few restarts, and played some of the dlc, but never actually finished the main story, so I guess that wins in the replayability department.

    You're definitely missing out, if you're into Fallout remotely.

    From the reviews I have read and peoples opinions on here, it really doesnt sound like my thing, the stripping out of rpg elements and even more emphasis on combat really turns me off
    However henke enjoyed it so if its on some ultra sale on steam in the future will probly give it a go.

    I read that too, and it's just not true. They probably meant that there are more enemies, and more frequent encounters. Which is right. The RPG part is still almost exactly the same as in the other Bethesda Fallouts. Only thing which has a significant influence for me is that you don't have to maintain/repair your weapons anymore. And, that you can pretty much use power armor right from the beginning is a tad annoying. I can't see how it is much different in any other regard though.

    Oh, and if you really get to buy it, nevermind the intro, and nevermind the beginning of the game. It will get better and better. I haven't yet finished it, but, played it like 95%, and from my scpeticism in the beginning, it developed to a "never had so much fun in a Fallout game" attitude. I don't think there can be much of an argument that the game world is the best of the 3D parts really. It's really impressive.

    ok you make a good case, the exploration factor is what I enjoyed most about the Fallout games. There isnt any patches or mods to tone down the encounters at all?

    No idea, i play it vanilla. The frequency of the encounters didn't bother me too much though. Just in the more "urban" areas, it could be a bit too much. Oh, and i also found very positive, that you're not hunted by factions which want to see you dead anymore, like with the Talon company in Fallout 3, or the Legion in NV (yes, i played the good guy in both). Especially, in NV, the hit squad could be a real PITA.

    Fallout 4
    Fallout 3 - New Vegas (too many distinct elements of greatness for each to pull one to the lead of the other for me.)

    That's all I've played. Did the isometric gaming back with the Ultimas and don't see a need to go back to that style real soon to play older Fallout games.

    The encounters are far more frequent in the downtown areas and very often include mutual enemies fighting each other. The spawn points load so far away that you just need to listen for gun fire to know where some action is happening. Outside of the downtown, encounters can be avoided by investing in a stealth build or be very good with a sniper rifle.

    The only disappointment that still irks me about Fallout 4 is the way the main story needs to be resolved. There are choices, but how you get to that point is too arbitrary for my liking. New Vegas was more satisfying albeit it ended the gameplay.

    Not always. I ended up a couple of times in the middle of the fight, and immediately had to defend myself... a little bit "less is more" would have been sufficient. It's not really bad by any means though.

    Fallout 4 looks great and has a really detailed world to explore, but loses a lot of points for me because the writing is poor (and sometimes outright silly), the quests are repetitive, and the main story (especially towards the end) feels like you're just doing it because it's the only quest left to do, rather than there being any actual motivation to help any of the awful factions achieve their ignominious goals.

    As a Fallout game I found 4 pretty disappointing but as a sort of Borderlands++ I thought it was great.

    Not ranking Fallout 4 because I've never played it, my RL doesn't allow for massive 100+ hour RPGs any more.

    Actually, i'd agree with all those points. And still i feel like i've played a great game in the end. I guess that shows, at least for me, that it's kind of complaining on a pretty high level.

    Note also that, IMO, those are general issues with the Bethesda games. I found New Vegas better in that regard. I don't know how many of the New Vegas devs actually worked at Fallout 4 too though.

    You probably know this already, but in case you don't, New Vegas was done by Obsidian Entertainment, with Bethesda providing the basis and publishing the game. I wouldn't know of any major Obsidian team members moving on to Bethesda afterwards, and from what I've read about Fallout 4 it doesn't sound like the game displays any of Obsidian's strengths, so I'd be surprised if any of New Vegas' major contributors worked on Fallout 4.
