A really fun and interesting game

I have been playing the Fallout "franchise" since 1997, when the first one, "Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game", was released. It is better known as just "Fallout". The game was heavily influenced by a game called "Wasteland".
Wasteland is a post-nuclear computer role-playing game created by Interplay and published by Electronic Arts on January 27, 1987. It was released for Apple II, Commodore 64 and Microsoft DOS. Wasteland is not considered part of the Fallout universe, but it served as a major inspiration in Fallout's creation and numerous references can be found throughout the series.
