I'm not exactly sure why, but I am enjoying this game immensely so far - perhaps because I'm provided with a large, virtual playground to create my own sort of story and personality. There are plenty of ugly quirks along the way, but nothing I can't live with. Love it or hate it is what I think it all boils down to; I just so happen to love the game (so far), but I could easily see why someone else might hate it just as passionately.

Hmm...

Well, it's Oblivion not Fallout.  That's enough for me to skip it, since it would be a constant source of annoyance.

I did a quick run through the forums, and couldn't find my answer: Does F3 run on Crossover?

I know that Oblivion doesn't so I would assume that F3 doesn't.

I've heard of one guy who could install F3 just fine, but not get it to run.. So I would like to hear what you guys had of experience. :)

Though I have no experience with crossover, I have always used boot camp, I can't imagine the performance being anywhere close to enjoyable with a game like Fallout 3.

On another note, I did just pick the game up for my pc...and I must say I am really enjoying it so far.  Obviously the first thing you will notice is that it does feel like Oblivion which is no surprise but I felt that the central story line in Fallout picked up much quicker.  Also the morale choices seem to be much greater than in Oblivion...for example in the first town you come across is a ancient undetonated atom bomb.  You are then confronted with the choices of either leaving the bomb in its current state, rigging the bomb to explode, or completely defusing it.  I chose to defuse the bomb so I am not totally sure if you could actually blow up the entire town and surrounding area...planning on taking that path the next play through because this is definitely one of those games that will drive you to complete it, and replay it over and over to explore the different paths.
Oh and did I mention that in this town with the bomb, there exists a religious sect that worships the power of the bomb?

Its things like that make Fallout 3 just as enjoyable, if not more enjoyable than Oblivion for me.  Granted I loved Oblivion so that is probably part of why I have been enjoying Fallout 3.  

If you didn't enjoy Oblivion, you probably wont enjoy this one so I guess that makes it somewhat easier to decide if you want to drop the money on it.

Anyways like I said, I am currently working my way through so I can't give an exact and in depth review, but so far I have found it to be a great game and definitely worth picking up, and I would be happy to answer any questions about the game.

I just finished Fallout 3 on my PS3.  I did encounter a few bugs that I hope can be ironed out in a future patch, otherwise it is a solid entry into the Fallout series.

I have no experience with F3 but I have some with Oblivion, which installs fine, but doesn't even begin to display the loading screen.

Speaking of bombs, anyone that's played Fallout 3 will appreciate the mine stacking glitch:

I used to play on a Halo server that had a mod where the shotgun fired sticky grenades.  A buttload of them and they all went off at the same time.  I spent more time in the air than I did on the ground.  Spawn, grab the shotgun, fire a shot onto the seat of a Ghost, have a seat, enjoy the view.  Even Scorpions were blown across the map.

Bethesda hired Obsidian Entertainment to make Fallout: New Vegas. Maybe they do understand that they can't make RPGs.
