No worries, mate! Is that a fellow Vault Dweller I see there? :)
Yes it is. I recently got the first Fallout game for my laptop. I've been enjoying it so far. Do you have any of the older Fallouts?
I must confess to having never played any Fallout gamers older than Fallout 3. Would you say you prefer them to the newer Bethesda ones?
Yes. While I enjoyed Fallout 3 for the exploration, the older games have more parts where you can avoid combat and the raiders aren't just reavers from firefly. The BoS being overly good kinda ruined it for some old fans, and it bugged me because I'm a stickler for canon. Some of the quests I did enjoy such as the ghouls and tenpenny tower and the pitt.
(posting it in two parts as I only have a limited amount of characters)
Bethesda put in one too many references to the old games, in particular comparisons to the Vault Dweller (Armoured vault 101 suit was nice, but Trouble on the homefront was bad) and the super mutants and Enclave feel poorly explained. But looking at Beth allowing Obsidian to make FNV and what beth did with Skyrim, I look forward to Fallout 4.
