How many hours have you put into Fallout 3?
" 900 Zillion. "Rofl.
I've put in around 30, mostly focusing on the primary missions. I played through the first 3 DLC packs, and am working on the side quests from the base game now. Planning on picking up those last two after Christmas.
I just finished the last DLC for myself and am at 59 hours with 1550/1550 gamerscore in it now. I feel pretty accomplished, but I still feel the urge to check out random map locations for the side story elements in there.
Fallout 3 made me stop playing Modern Warfare 2 online for over a week. I totally enjoy this game.
So far 94 hours, on my first playthrough with no DLC started yet. It took 1 year to play the first 50 hours and 4 days for the next 50. Going to have to stop playing it for a while, it's far too addictive. It's a pretty complete playthrough though, going to get all the achievement points and max out the character as far as possible, ie all the books and bobbleheads.
So good, i bought it twice, and if i ever get hold of the collectors edition then it'll be three times
I'm about 5 hours in. I just got GOTY on PS3 and so far I just havent warmed up to the game. There have been a bunch of glitches and freezes, and after my Far Cry 2 experience I am very leery of the game's stability. I also just went straight from playing Oblivion into FO3, and like I said I just havent warmed up to it. I feel like I should try and take it back before my 7 day window closes and see if I can exchange it for Borderlands or Dragon age. Any thoughts?
Like 2 hours, and I'm ALREADY all sorts of fucked (minor spoilers below)
So I got out of the vault, talked to this lady in this farm, excepted her quest (though I had no idea where I was going) and continued exploring. I found a school, it was really beat up but for some reason I was hoping they had Stinpacks (or whatever you call them) there. So I went in, started walking around, and all the sudden, I hear voices. These crazy Raider motherfuckers were going to kill me! They had clubs and proceeded to beat the shit out of me. I died and spawned near this shed across the street from the school, knowing the dangers of the school, I decided to never go back. So I went a different way, and I stopped for a moment to get a drink of water (in RL, mind you) and all of the sudden I see this lady fighting off this mole rat, she yells to me "I'm gonna need some help with this one" (I forgot to mention, through my first hour and a half of play I didn't even know how to equip weapons), so I killed the mole rat for her. You know what the bitch does afterwards? Kill me.
So again I respawn in the same place as last time, and I decide to keep a faster pace (oh, and did I mention my vision was blurry?). I go the northeast, all of the sudden, "HOLY SHIT WHAT IS THAT THING" I yell, it's this weird metallic thing with one eyeball. It starts chasing me, fast, as I've realized most enemy characters do in Fallout 3, and again I die. I respawn all the way back across the street from that god-forsaken school. This time, I'm frustrated, so I rush over to where I was before that thing killed me and then some, all the way over to what looks like a mall. So I walk right next to the mall, all the sudden I hear "hey you!" This guy wants to kill me for my bounty, right? So again I die, this time I rush over to the mall and make sure I take an alternate route, dudes were shooting me up bad but I finally made it inside the mall and you know what I find out? The fucking place is empty, also, Raiders chase me down and kill me (I was scared shitless because that place was dark, my health was extremely low, and this Raider ran fast and had this awful war cry). So I spawn inside the mall, knowing better, I leave and head down north some more, and I finally reach this nearly empty wharf, and I talk to this old lady who doesn't have anything I want for sale, and I talk to this little boy, who gives me another quest, I still have no idea at all where I am supposed to go but I accept the quest anyways. All the sudden out of nowhere I die and respawn back inside that hellhole of a mall. Pissed off, I kill every living person outside the mall with my pistol I just figured out how to use (don't look at me like that, they were shooting at me like crazy). At this point I only have about 1 bar of health, and I head back down to the wharf and talk to that old lady, but this time, I don't talk to a kid afterwards, the kid apparently isn't coming back. So I walk northeast a bit more and find a metro, I don't know why but I went inside, and right after I make it down a set of stairs I die for no reason. I respawn at the beginning of the metro, and this time I figure it isn't worth it and leave. So I head northeast some more and kill some raiders by this bridge, I then start north and find this town. I find a tiny sanctuary and sleep there. I then head in to this building where I proceed to talk to a whore who lives in this place with a guy named Drebin, not liking the sound of this fellow, I shoot him in the head 5 times. I get the lady to follow me but then a horde of those metallic looking one eyeballed things gang up on me in a group of 4 and I die.
That's it for now.
