Vault-Tec engineers have worked around the clock on an interactive reproduction of Wasteland life for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own vault. Fallout 3 includes an expansive world, unique combat, shockingly realistic visuals, tons of player choice, and an incredible cast of dynamic characters. Every minute is a fight for survival against the terrors of the outside world – radiation, Super Mutants, and hostile mutated creatures.

Expect to do some work under the hood to get it working on Windows 7 and up.

"Notice: Fallout 3 is not optimized for Windows 7 and later."
Get GOTY not standard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Standard is a waste of money
I recently bought this as someone who played it on PS3 but wanted to go back but with graphics mods and such and it was quite a lot of work just to figure out what mod manager to use. But after that everything went smoothly. Or has gone. I've literally only played a couple hours as I started this project two days ago. I'm using the GoG version, so YMMV.

There are lots of versions of the FOMM, fallout mod manager, and others might work, but here's the link to the one I used: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout...?tab=files

Separately, if you plan to get texture mods, you may want this program that you put the fallout3.exe into its folder, patch it, then put it back.

https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout...?tab=files

So far, I'm using the following mods. Each was downloaded, then added through the package manager button on the fallout mod manager above (then activated, etc). Google or search them on nexus mods for info.

Clean-deluxe goty edition
fallout street lights
flora overhaul
megaton lighting
neilmc terrain pack <-big texture pack
tree roots
vandr hd creatures

I tried one called project reality, but I think it changes the lighting of the game in a way that isn't faithful.

Edit: Alt Tabbing from the game in full screen can make it so you have to close the game and get back in, sucks if you don't save all the time. This mod runs in the background, and fakes a fullscreen (you set FOMM to do windowed mode) and so you can alt tab in and out: https://www.nexusmods.com/newvega...1000011370

I'd love for this, and Oblivion, to be released on Switch.

This is the best Fallout game in the entire series!!

However, I can't get this to play on Steam + windows 10 no matter what tips, tricks or tutorials I follow.

I bought it on GOG a few weeks back and I've been playing on my windows 10 machine without issue. 30+ hours of fallout bliss.

Get both but get the GOTY editions. FO3 is my personal favorite, but people think New Vegas is more fun. They're both great.

I played this before NV but you really can't go wrong playing either first. I would recommend the GOTY versions of both though.

Love FO3! I doubt it would work on my Surface Pro 3 though. Haha! I'm currently going through Point Lookout on my X360.

This released before New Vegas so you can't go wrong with playing this first.

Right.

I bought the GOG version awhile back but haven't installed it, but recall their version supposedly works on modern version of Windows.

Great game. But save the $2; come visit NYC in two weeks and play the 3D version.
