Fallout (1997)

You’ll never forget your first trip into the Wasteland. Fallout debuted in 1997, and players had never seen anything quite like it before. Unlike many postapocalyptic RPGs that had come before it, Fallout featured an attractive isometric interface, gorgeously animated characters and intuitive gameplay that didn’t require committing an entire instruction manual to memory. You take control of the Vault Dweller, a survivor from an underground bunker who must venture out into the world to secure a new water supply. Fallout is full of tough moral choices, huge areas to explore and hidden secrets to unearth, but the biggest draw is still the tight, customizable gameplay that lets you fine-tune your character’s reputation, skills and play style. — Marshall Honorof
