#52 Posted by ZombieKitty (103 posts) -

#53 Posted by Rapture (265 posts) -

Round 15 hours, stopped after i got Crysis and Cod 4 from a friend

#54 Posted by Systech (4078 posts) -

Something around 160 hours.

#55 Posted by Shadow (4966 posts) -

between two characters, somewhere over 150 hours.

#56 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

40-50 hours. I sold it quite a while ago though, but now I'm regretting it. Exploring was so much fun. Probably my favourite game this console generation.

At least 200 hours. Had to add it up because of three different profiles. I would be much more if I had any of the DLC.

That's a lot of Fallout.

0. I wasn't dumb enough to buy the game when i could just wait for the GOTY edition...

#60 Posted by corgorav (219 posts) -

Some 70-80 h with my one guy, still doing some original side quests before doing the dlc's which I've bought.

Holy, wow. 80 hours 32 minutes. And that isn't counting times I've played and died and had to reload. AND it isn't counting my first full playthrough of the game, which had to at least have been around 40 hours. But that's nothing compared to how many hours I've sunk into Pokemon. We're talking over 100 hours in each of the more recent games. Almost 200 in Diamond.

I take my time, varying difficulties, requirements, challenges, and styles.

I'm at about 70 hours with my first character.  All missions and DLC complete.  I would have held off on that stuff tho had I thought they'd raise the level cap.


Every single thing in this applies to me too.
#64 Posted by MjHealy (1739 posts) -

66 hours between two characters. Level 26 with my evil one and Level 16 on my good one.

#65 Posted by L (1681 posts) -

10 hours but only done seven quests so far. Lots of exploring. :P

" About 10 or less hours total then I got bored of it. Doubt I'll ever go back and finish it, just like Oblivion. "
Same here
#67 Posted by T0mF5 (928 posts) -

90+ hours

#68 Posted by Satune (477 posts) -

Probably over 50 hours over Pc and 360.
Oblivion was alot better for me, I sunk at least 250 hours into that, so I got my fair share of Bethesda RPGing from that game.

When I first tried playing it last year I was completely uninterested, wasn't ready to put the time in and had so many other games I wanted to play over the holidays.  What with nothing really coming out over the last few months I decided to give it another try and I am currently at 65+ hours with 2 DLC packs remaining. Pure love for this game, recommend anyone who tried it before and couldn't get in to it gives it another chance.

#70 Posted by HistoryInRust (6221 posts) -

Just hit the 70 hour mark. Only tonight did I finally cave and download the extra content.

I have yet to finish the main quest. Still exploring/gathering weapons.

#71 Posted by GiantRetard (127 posts) -

whay 2 many hours it was probably around 120 hours i had preety much collected every thing in the world that was worth having

#72 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

first attempt: 30 minutes

second attempt: two hours
#73 Posted by jmrwacko (2444 posts) -

My first playthrough was 30 something hours. I'm playing through the game again on PC with MMM3, and it's completely revitalized the game.

#74 Posted by ColMustard (357 posts) -

Im just about to tick my 100th hour.  What a moment.  I could play this game for eternity.

#75 Posted by skrutop (3615 posts) -

I have 3 characters, all up to level 20.  So I'd say somewhere in the 110+ vicinity.  Of course, I haven't gotten any of the DLC yet.  When I do, it'll go up to 150+, easily.  The same thing happened with Oblivion.  I had 100 hours and added another 120 after getting the DLC.

#76 Posted by NoDeath (797 posts) -

about 60 hours so far, but I have yet to buy any of the DLC (with the exception of Operation Anchoridge), all of which I plan to buy

#77 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4905 posts) -

I´m too lazy to go check, but i remember by first of three characters have over 70+ hours. But i don´t remember what the other two are.

#78 Posted by CharkeeFarlee (896 posts) -

Never! I dont own the game... yet.
It's on the top of  my to buy list. sigh

#79 Posted by Atlas (2401 posts) -

I'm approaching 100 hours over three saves, two long, one short. Pales in comparison to my time spent with Oblivion, but I'm sure it's a game I'll be playing for years to come.

#80 Posted by baba2 (275 posts) -

Just over 70 hours.

#81 Posted by sickVisionz (1268 posts) -

Right around 100, but about 20 of that is me idling.  My laptop is always within reach so I might be playing and then i'll look at something online, get side tracked and like 3 hours later I remember that my 360 is on.

I love leveling my characters in RPGs.  I hope they release more DLC to raise the level cap to like 50 and make it really hard to gain new levels.  I quit playing the game for about 6 months when I hit level 20.  I purchased the Broken Steel DLC last week and i'm on the cusp of level 28 right now and i've only done like two DLC missions.  If I hit 30 i'm calling it a wrap.  No XP = No play for me.

#82 Posted by Dasacant2 (193 posts) -

well over 100 hours, it has been my go to game since it's release, and the DLC (especially broken steel) has kept it interesting throughout.  

#83 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6270 posts) -

I have one character, I've put in about 75 hours with him.

#84 Posted by Ineedaname (4319 posts) -

9 hours =(, I'm going to try and get playing it for a second time though.

#85 Posted by zzZBibboZzz (147 posts) -

about 400-500 hours i think

#86 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

So after buying Fallout 3 for a second time a few days ago, I've now reached 70 hours, meaning I put about 25 hours into it the last 3 days. It freezes occasionally when I go into VATS now, so I think I may be done with it now. I've explored everything on the map a part from one or two stations left, so I don't think I've got much more to do anyway, if anything. I haven't downloaded the DLC as I've been playing the PS3 version, I'm waiting for the GOTY edition and will start playing it again then probably.

Why did you buy the DLC if your not going to play it right away? Pretty silly decision if you ask me because there was a price drop on OA for gold members a week or so ago and there could be more price drops to come.

And to people who give out about this game - well you should remember when you first play Fallout 3 that it's a game that's all about your dude vs this post nuclear war world. You must survive, and anything you gain on your way (scrap metal, wine, pre war money, 9mm pistol, a house, a super mutant friend etc) is a bonus and you should feel awesome if you are still alive. In fact looking back at it the most fun I've had with this game was the very beginning, when I was a noob who was aimlessly wandering just trying to survive, collecting any bit of loot here and there that I could sell. Now my character is of course awesome, and my house in Megaton is covered with garden gnomes surrounded in pre war money which I've collected from my adventures.

Anyway, I've played this game for around 150 hours, oh and one more thing I have to say to the haters - use your imagination while playing (it is a role playing game afterall) and SAVE OFTEN!
#88 Posted by TheMasterDS (1871 posts) -

91 Hours with my first, 26 hours with my second, 23 hours with my 3rd, and 8 and a half hours with my 4th. So 148.5. Plus I'd imagine about 2 hours of times I went on killing sprees and didn't save and deaths, so lets round it to 150.

#89 Posted by Nets (318 posts) -

None. The game is still shrink wrapped, waiting for me to play it with spare time for an RPG.
If you all thought you played Fallout 3 a ridiculous amount, think again. My friend has played it over 800 whopping hours.

#90 Posted by jollywhitegiant (54 posts) -

About 30 hours on my first "good character" and then 45 hours on my "evil character". I was thinking about playing all the way through with a neutral/close combat character but I'm feeling a bit burnt out.

#91 Posted by spazmaster666 (1965 posts) -

I've played the 360 version for over 150 hours now (this includes two play throughs and all the DLCs) and the PC version for about 60 hours. And the only reason I haven't played as much on the PC versus the 360 is because the PC version tends to crash a lot, which can make long gaming sessions difficult.

#92 Posted by HAMMERCLAW (298 posts) -

I've wandered the wasteland for so long, I was on the job the other day, working on a machine, looked down on the ground and saw two rusty bobby pins, and thought, cool.

#93 Edited by fallen_elite (380 posts) -

At least 50 hours with two characters on PC. I played through it twice, and both times I forgot to backup my saved games.

I quit after the second time because of a game breaking bug in Broken Steel where it wouldn't allow me to beat the game. Frustrated the hell out of me, I haven't tried playing through again and I probably won't until the GOTY version is released in October.

same here, sold it to FYE the next week, but I only got about 2 hours :P
#95 Posted by The_Ish (481 posts) -

I have over 700 saves.

Better start deleting.
#96 Posted by BlameTheGame (75 posts) -

57 and still going.

#97 Posted by TrackZero (42 posts) -

Between all my characters (360 and PC), I'm now clocking 420 hours.   It helps that FO3 is one of those titles you can always just fire up when you're not sure what to play.

#98 Posted by Seedofpower (3909 posts) -
@natetodamax: I put enough for a good first run through, then I didn't have the heart to do it again for evil.
