Fallout Free on Good Old Games for the next 48ish hours

I really enjoy Good Old Games, as they bring a lot of older titles to the PC in a way that newer machines can generally run them easily enough.  Well, GoG has a nice freebie for the next couple of days - the original Fallout is free.  You can find it here if you are interested.

I figure it's worth checking out since creating an account there is free.  I know when I first signed up, I got a couple of freebie games that were pretty 'meh', but Fallout's still pretty solid today, and GoG has done other giveaways over the last year as well.

  1. I only ever played Fallout 3 and NV. Might try the first 2, thanks for the idea :)

  2. No problem at all. :)

    Fallouts 1 & 2 were very different animals (rpg's not first-person shoot/rpg hybrids). I only played a bit of Fallout 2 at a friend's house, but I got the first one around the same time I picked up Diablo and StarCraft for my PC a zillion years ago and loved it. I think it normally goes for like $6 or something like that, so it's probably worth grabbing now to take a flier on it and see if you like it. :) Definitely old-school, but I picked it, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics up awhile back and they're still fun to mess around with.

  3. I was shocked to see the Fallout screenshot above and that it was not in 1st-person. Almost gives that bird's-eye 'age of empires' kind of view.

  4. @Robert - haha, very much so. It had sort of a top-down isometric type view - the kind of view that was quite popular in PC titles back then like Diablo, Warcraft and StarCraft - all of which I was playing back then around the same time. But in larger, better detail if I'm remembering right. Fallout 3 was really a huge departure from what Fallouts 1 & 2 had been previously.
