After taking a break from Arcania (Gothic 4) to beat Fallout: New Vegas, I finally went back and powered through the last 7 or 8 hours to beat the game. I noticed there were no reviews on Giant Bomb for this game yet, so I put mine up here. Admittedly, it's pretty harsh, but I was fairly disappointed with it. It's one of the few games that I played all the way through that I never really got into. Almost every moment I was playing it, I felt like I was wasting my time. I'm a little OCD when it comes to gaming, so I felt obligated to finish it up. And then I felt obligated to warn the world. In a lot of ways, it felt like the exact opposite of New Vegas. It was polished, the graphics didn't look dated, and there were very few bugs (and certainly no game-crashing bugs). But I never really had any fun with it. The whole time I was playing Fallout, I wanted to keep playing Fallout, even when the game randomly decided that I couldn't, or quests got screwed up, or something else bizarre happened. This sort of crystallizes the importance of good design/writing in game development.
