    Fallout is one of those franchises that has survived to this day. To me this game has defined what a “post apocalyptic” game environment looks like.

    As a spiritual successor to Wasteland, the original fallout was amazing at the time. Its creation was somewhat turbulent as it started as a GURPS system game but lost the license in the middle of the development. It was made towards the end of the DOS era so the graphics and controls were polished and aged quite well.

    As a very dialog heavy game it has managed a perfect blend between seriousness and humour. For me this game is where I actually learned English.

    It would be nice to do this since we’ve covered Wasteland in the past. 1997 was also kind of the last bastion for DOS gaming, so it would be interesting to talk about that aspect as well.

    The original release includes the DOS version, but unfortunately not the GOG version – as with so many releases of this period.

    Can I also say, I *love* the aesthetic.
