I'm kinda curious what the stats are on this. Something tells me a lot of people were introduced to the series with Fallout 3.
I first played Fallout 2 when my cousin was playing it at his families cabin outside of Toronto. I think this was in 2000? I was entranced by it from the first moment I saw it. I have a soft spot for post apocalyptic settings where people revitalize civilization in weird ways. And the whole idea of Vaults as being social experiments was really fascinating. Ended up buying a copy of the game from WalMart not too long after in one of those weird double packs with the original Fallout which I didn't appreciate much until later in life.
