Katja: You're not from around here. Who're you?
Vault Dweller: I might ask the same of you.
Katja: You might, but you're on my home turf, not vice-versa. So put up or shut up.

Fallout definitely deserves the title 'RPG Of The Year'
4 January 1999 | by (Christchurch, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Fallout the post nuclear role playing game which made me lose much sleep and many weeks lost to this game, but boy was it worth it! Fallout is one hell of a ride with its amazing storyline and its realistic RTS action scenes make this a game definitely worth playing. Fallout 2 is already out but it will never be as good as its post apocalyptic prequel. Fallout is a fine example of its genre and it every bit deserves the title 'RPG of the year' (1997).
