Fallout 3, and to a lesser extent, Fallout 4 are great games. Why are they great? Because the stories are so simple. It’s not overly complicated, there’s no ‘preaching’, you have a great cast of characters and it just works.
I never played Fallout 1 or 2, but I have spent many happy hours in 3 and 4. Fallout 3 is probably the best. If you don’t know the story, it goes like this:
Centuries following nuclear war, a teen leaves the safety of an underground vault in order to find their father, who left in hopes of creating a water purifier.
It’s very gripping and is open open-world game, so you can find your father, battle mutated fire-breathing ants, or just wander around the wasteland looking for adventure. It’s also got a great 1930s soundtrack, which works really well with the backdrop of mutated creatures.
The games have been a huge success so, of course, they are going to ruin it with a TV series. It was announced a while back that Amazon Prime TV was developing a show, but we haven’t heard much, until now.
The Fallout series will star Ella Purnell, Kyle MacLachlan, Moises Arias, Johnny Pemberton, Walton Goggins, Xelia Mendes-Jones, Aaron Moten, and Leer Leary. Interestingly, the director of the game Fallout 3 is serving as executive producer for the TV show. Is this good news?
The Fallout TV series will be on Amazon on 12th April 2024.
