If there is one game that you buy this year, it should be Fallout 3 ($50-$70). It doesn't need a spiel. Surely you're familiar with its predecessor, and surely you've waited patiently for the followup. And now, on October 28, 2008, over 10 years after Fallout 2 was released, the set-in-2277 Fallout 3 is on store shelves and available for all major platforms. Buy it now.
