It was mildly incredibly broken upon release, but once we could finally play Fallout: New Vegas without bits of it falling off, it was clear that the post-apocalyptic RPG had come home. While Bethesda's Fallout 3 does a few things better than this full-length semi-sequel, New Vegas' writing and design benefited greatly from having many of the original Fallout developers on-board.

Obsidian's game is a more complex, ambitious affair, with an optional Hardcore mode and with a tangled web of a story that encompasses multiple factions and endings, few clear right or wrong decisions, and a gang that models itself after Elvis Presley. Four expansions followed, taking you to far-flung parts of the Wasteland including a hidden laboratory populated by demented robots.

More wasteland to wander. New Vegas is good, but the failure to move the series on makes it feel a tiny bit stale.
