  • Fallout 1
  • Fallout 2
  • Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel

The first entry to hit the market was Fallout 1, released in 1997. It thrusts players into the desolate wasteland following a nuclear apocalypse. As the Vault Dweller, players navigate the ruins, making impactful choices that shape the story and define the fate of their character.

The game was considered a commercial success back in the day, prompting the development and release of Fallout 2, released in 1998, which expands the wasteland narrative and offers a larger world with intricate storylines. Taking place sometime after the first game, players step into the shoes of the Chosen One, a descendant of the Vault Dweller, and embark on a quest to save their tribal village, encountering complex moral decisions and diverse factions along the way.

Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, launched in 2001, takes a tactical turn on the series by introducing squad-based combat. Set in the Midwest, players assume the role of a Brotherhood of Steel initiate, leading a squad through strategic battles against mutated creatures and rival factions. Taking a substantial risk by deviating from the pattern set by its predecessors, the game proved to be a success and was nominated for the 2001 Computer Gaming World “Best Strategy Game” award.

The three classics were handled by developer and publisher Interplay Productions. Bethesda later acquired the rights to the franchise in 2007, propelling it to new heights. While the highly acclaimed studio has garnered widespread acclaim for its spin on the series, Interplay Productions’ entries still hold their own in today’s gaming landscape.
