Well I bought the GOTY edition in 2009 i think and played it for a few months. But I bever could "get into" this game. I was to big, I got lost in the wastelands. Then I gave it a try halfway 2010 and again... i couldn't find my way.
A few weeks I wanted to sell my copy, but wanted to give it a 3rd try. I decided to do Anchorage. Because that was a "small" story and after that DLC I nevers stopped playing.
I'm hooked to this game and i'd say it's one of the best games I've ever played.
For instance when I started Red Dead Redemption i was hooked from the beginning'till the end.
I voted ffor best game, beacuse there was no other optopn. I hated GTA (played the last one on the x360), I only liked Vice and I played that on the PC and I never played Metal Gear Solid. So option 2 is a no go for me. As for 3 and 4.
Fallout 3 is not THE best game I've ever played on the console, but it's mucht better then GTA. It's one of my favorites together with Bad Company 2 and I know that Battlefield 3 wil be the best game of 2011, 2012 and 2013 LOL
