My vote goes to Fallout 3.
Modern Warfare and the rest of the Call of Duty games are good, but Fallout is just a so much more complete and interesting experience in my opinion. Of the Call of Duty series, World at War was the best anyways.
Junk angel;4923631It really comes down if you want an FPS with auto-aim or one without.
Except that only one of them is actually an FPS at all, and the other, with as bad of shooting as it has and so much emphasis on RPG, doesn't even qualify as a TPS, or any kind of shooter at all really. At best, Fallout 3 is a corny RPG with very bad shooting elements thrown in as an afterthought.
Omen, its pretty obvious that your all about pure shooter and action games, and that RPG games are not your thing at all, seeing as how you had pretty much all the same complaints regarding Mass Effect (another great RPG) a little while ago i recall.
I like fps's but havent really tried rpg's but they look pretty cool. cod4 was cool although cod waw was disappointing
Am i the only one who liked World at War better?

I'm sure among hardcore FPS fans they're bad, but I'm curious, what's so bad about them? Be specific.
To be honest, I'm not really sure what I can say. With out Modern Warfare 2 actually being out, we can only tell you what we know from game news and how CoD 4 was
All I know about Modern Warfare 2 is that the SP story once again involves you fighting ultra-nationalist Russians who probably have a WMD. "Soap" is the new characters CO. I know setting wise it'll probably have something mountainous, Russia, and an urban setting. There will be a bunch of explosions and things ripped out of action movies like CoD 4, as I'm told one level will involve a high-speed snowmobile escape. It'll have a cooperative mode, but not in the campaign story.
MP I haven't seen yet, but if they're going to win over the CoD 4 crowd the MP will operate along the same lines. That is throwing grenades everywhere and spamming air strikes.
Personally, I liked Fallout 3 but it's caught in a bad place for those who want a shooter and those who want a "real" RPG as they put it. You'll really only enjoy the game if you're not anal about little things and can go through the trouble of modding (and this means it's longevity is better on the PC).
I'm going to assume however that since you mentioned both Fallout 3 and MW2 and haven't really played RPGs, you're going off purely from their popularity and rankings. In that case I just recommend MW 2 since it will be more to your taste. It has an MP so you can play with people and will probably have a better replay value for your purposes.
Fallout 3 is one of the best games I personally have ever played, especially in terms of mood and immersion. But like most people before me have said, it really depends on your tastes. I would pick up both if possible.
I for one will probably pick up MW2. Even though I never played the first, the demo video for MW2 looks awesome: I suggest you watch in HD for the full effect.
No Doc, I don't exclusively play FPS games. I play adventure games and racing games as well, along with some hybrid shooter/RPGs that do a lot better job of it than FO 3 or ME. I could just as easily say those interested in FO 3 and ME are only into hardcore RPGs, but I don't choose to stereotype as you do.
How about you wait until they both come out?

Yeah, some people get stuck on the smallest details and just can't relax and enjoy the game for what it is.
...but I don't choose to stereotype as you do.
Come off it Omen. You were the one complaining about how poor of a shooter they are, and complaining about having to follow side quests and small story lines. I wasn't stereotyping, i was just making a observation on what types of games you seem to prefer from reading the comments you have posted.

Omen, as I said in the other thread, the fact that you bought a game without really knowing what it was doesn't make it a bad game. Bad marketing, maybe, but Mass Effect and Fallout 3 are both excellent games. They're just not games for you apparently.
Personally I'm getting Modern Warfare 2 the instant it's out, reviews be damned. But if you're far more sensible with your money than I, Plyr, you might want to wait until you can read some feedback or have a go on a demo or something. Fallout 3 is already out, you can find a way to have a go on it, you can speak to others about it, and unlike Omen you have the chance to generally learn what it's all about before you actually buy it. Modern Warfare 2 on the other hand, while I highly doubt it, could turn out to be utter garbage for all we know.
There's nothing stopping you from buying both anyway; buy one first, buy the other later. They don't cease to exist after a certain period of time, you know, you don't have to buy either of them when they're first released.
