Damn I forgot to mention that. Yes I actually tried Oblivion and for whatever reason it didn't hold my interest. Although Oblivion and Skyrim are similar in their settings, Skyrim seemed to pay a lot more attention to detail in all facet of the game IMO.

I haven't used GameFly but I hear it's legit and people really like it.
Also, RedBox always has the big new games out for rent for $2.. I always get a few games from there a month to test.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Wow I just looked it up, no question I've got to try this one out.
Redbox has games? You'd swear I lived under a rock. Great info on gamefly. Thank you
Fallout 2....I got VERY interested in it, then it lost my attention fast. Is it worth restarting? or should I just buy Fallout 3.
Skyrim actually kinda lost my interest even though I played Oblivion into the ground.
so replay fallout 2 or skip to 3?
Bethesda had nothing to do with the first two Fallouts.
I thought the fallout 2 controls were goofy. I had just finished Mass Effect 2 in which I felt the controls and UI were smooth as butter and Fallout 2 seemed clunky..
edit...sorry fallout 3 was the one I didn't like, not 2...

Fallout 2 is 14 years old so that is understandable.
it was actually fallout 3 I didn't like...
Gamefly. I have it and enjoy it because I beat games so quickly they are rarely worth a purchase to me. My only gripe is that it is usually tough to get new releases quickly, unless you have already returned your game and have nothing in your que except for the new release on the day before it comes out.
If you remember to do that you can usually get new release the day after they come out. You can also then purchase the game as used even though you are the only one who has used it.
Fallout 3 ASAP. I haven't played 1 and 2 but I've seen videos of them. You're going to be quite surprised at what you're getting into with part 3 (in a good way).
Go ahead and get Fallout 3 "Game of the year edition" so you get all the extras.

I tried Oblivion after Skyrim which I try to stay away from given that games usually get better graphically and you miss some of the backstory. They're definitely similar but for whatever reason I just didn't get into oblivion. I love Skyrim but I'm obsessed with Fallout 3 and I'm positive I will feel the same on all their future fallout releases. I was even a fan of New Vegas. Not obsessed, but a fan nonetheless.
Skyrim is the GOAT in my opinion, and the Elder Scrolls Online looks VERY promising.
I am still playing Skyrim actually.
I'm still playing as well and this time I'm leaving no stone unturned. Once I've done everything possible I'm going to save the game and go back through every town on a killing spree lol...
I started another new game on Fallout 3 two night ago as well. Sad but true...
Should I get Fallout 3 if I am not interested in the setting? Meaning, I love games set in medieval times... post-apocalyptic stuff, not so much
Do you like the 50s? 'Cause thats a big theme throughout the game, too.
I click your avatar every time.
The game is amazing but I'd say no if you don't care for the things you mentioned.
The setting is kinda irrelevant. It's just an amazing game.
You could also start w New Vegas. IMO the apocalyptic backstory is irrelevant. Plus, the desert wasteland setting is the tits. First time you walk into new Vegas it's like "oooooh"
Fallout New Vegas is not the sequel to Fallout 3 therefore the apocoliptic backstory wouldn't apply here. If anything it's a prequel of sorts. Although the gameplay in New Vegas is identical to FO3 developed by Bethesda, the game itself is a side project developed by Obsidian Entertainment (I believe they did parts 1/2). From what I've read Bethesda owns the Fallout name now and plans to make several more Fallouts all sequels to the original while Obsidian develops a few more "side project" fallouts like New Vegas. The cool thing is you can literally keep everything the same, change the locations and keep making the graphics/storylines better and better as you go and I'll buy every last one of them. Don't change core whatsoever. What they started with part 3 set the stage for many more imo and you'd have to think that was their intention with this series. If it has the word fallout on it I'm getting it. End of story.
