Anyone played this game? It started non-linear gameplay... you can be good or bad or a combination of both... my guy was a drug-addict/boxer/porn-star/mafioso and he was the messiah of the wasteland.THAT WAS MY GOOD GUY. My bad guy killed kids,robbed graves,killed my wife with a rocket launcher,entire towns,and sold all my friends into slavery and
also killed my own tribe I was supposed to save.

I'd like to see an MMO or really good PS3 version of the original... and I think Rockstar should buy the license because It keeps geting screwed(I liked the BOS squad-rpg but the one they did for Xbox was far beyond crap.

god i loved fallout... the atmosphere and theme of that game was so good... and the "perks" and things your character got... such an interesting game! if they made a fallout mmo i would piss my pants :p i didn't play the strategy game, and the "baldur's gate dark alliance"-like one for ps2 etc was pretty fun with buddies, but completely not inspiring the way the rpgs were... they just kinda threw the atmosphere of the game out :\

it would be great. you could choose whether you wanted to be one of the people in the caves, going out to explore the world and save your people... or to be a settler, defending your lands and trying to establish colonies... or a mutant, trying to get a foothold in a world that just wants you dead...

and they could do the good/bad thing by stealing some of the faction ideas from everquest... so you could start off as one of the cave people in your fancy blue suit, and then side with the mutants by doing jobs for them and gaining faction :)

sweet :D yeah it'd be hella fun. and there's a million things they could do for missions and zones. and it would be a really unique mmo... they're almost all fantasy, except for anarchy online (meh) and planetside... and with the weird perks and stuff they could make character development really interesting...

they could also throw in some psionics or something, on the mutant side, to replace mages... hmm... man that'd be sweet... and for mass pvp, they could have some crazy mad max-ish battle zones :D fighting over oil and water wells...

too bad the franchise seems pretty much dead...

One of the greatest RPGs (both 1 and 2) ever made.

I'd be all for making a fallout mmo, but I really don't think anyone could do it accurately. For me, a big part of the atmosphere of the game was the awesome turn based combat system, and I don't know if that'd work out too well in an mmo.

hmm... imo, the combat system in fallout is the first thing that could go lol... it didn't really matter to me how the battles played out... it was the plot, and visuals, and music, and retro 50s art, and interesting environments, and character perks, and weird weapons and stuff that made the game, for me...

also, most mmo's are kinda-sorta turn-based, in that there are still timers for when you can do moves, and for how long they take... and there are innate abilities like dodging and blocking and accuracy... and speed of movement etc... it's more like civ3 style heheh... simultaneous turn-based ;)

Haha speak of the devil...

Interplay Making Fallout MMO Title?
The troubled developer announces losses, and a surprising rescue strategy.
by David Adams

June 25, 2004 - In its first quarter financial report issued today, Interplay displayed not only the expected sharp losses, but also a surprising possible direction for future game development.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2004, Interplay posted a net loss of $.9 million, in contrast to a net income of $5.6 million in the same period last year. The company explains the losses primarily on the sale of the Hunter: The Reckoning license for $15 million in the first quarter of 2003.

Interplay's financial trouble is certainly not news, as just weeks ago the company resorted to shutting down operations temporarily after state authorities found Interplay did not have worker's compensation insurance, nor was it paying all of its employees. The company has since reopened, having acquired insurance and promised to bring its payroll obligations up to date.

Far more interesting, however, is the development direction the company may now take: massively multiplayer gaming.

CEO Herve Caen commented, "Based on a detailed review of where our industry stands and the level of interest in the gaming community in taking some of our premier properties online, we are now pursuing several options to fund our entry into Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming with titles including Fallout."

A Fallout MMORPG? While the action-based Fallout console titles may have been a detour from the original series, an MMORPG title is far from what many hardcore fans of the series had expected.

However, Caen believes it could work. He continued, "Initial feedback from our investment bank and ongoing dialogue with others in the gaming sector appear to confirm that the combination of our valuable and popular intellectual properties with the rapidly growing online gaming community is the best way to maximize Interplay shareholder value."

Caen did add, however, that the company will likely continue development of "next generation" console titles and PC titles, along with "purely online" games.

We'll keep you posted on Interplay developments as soon as they emerge. Stay tuned.

wow... well, here's hoping... but it sounds like they're havin some troubles as it is... imo an mmo is not the type of project you pick up to save a dying company lol.... it's kinda like having a baby. you don't have a baby to save your marriage ;) as my dad would say, "an mmo is a pretty big commitment, are you sure you're ready for it?"

but if they do make it i'll sign on for sure, no matter how bad reviews are lol... at least for a month ;)

If you thought the first one was that great, you should definitely check out F2. One of my favorite games ever, and my fav. RPG. I don't know if this game would work as an MMO.

What other game captured the post-apocalyptic setting of Mad Max so well, created a highly addictive RPG game and decorated it heavily with hilarious movie references and parodies?
