    Alright, here's the situation:
    -PSN not back till next week
    -Nothing to do this weekend
    -Best Buy giftcards from birthday burning a hole in my pocket

    So, I figured I'd buy a cheap, older game to play single player on this weekend. Found out that Best Buy actually doesn't keep a great selection of older stuff in stock, but my local one does have GTA4, Fallout 3, Infamous, and Star Wars: Force Unleashed, all for $20.

    So of those four, which one would ya'll pick?

    Fallout 3 is one of the best singleplayer experiences from the last few years, definitely.

    Fallout 3 gets my vote too. Just an amazing game all the way around. The story is killer and the graphics are great.

    gta4 would be the best bet... when you're not playing missions you get to waste time running people over and cappin the popo.. i've had it since it came out and still play it today.. not to mention free play online is pretty fun too

    Well fallout would have gotten my vote, but I'm sure you'll have fun with both of them. FYI on fall out one of my fav things to do is pickpocket people, then leave a grenade in their pocket and wait for them to blow up. Any game that let's oh do that is awesome. Some damn ratings group also made it so you can't kill the annoying little kids in lamplight. it's much more fun to play the game evil!

    I usually play threw twice one time good one time evil. I gotta say evil is always more fun cause of all the effed up shit that you can get away with. Like if you kill the sherif in megaton the residents will talk shit. Something to the effect of just cause youre wearing his clothes doesn't mean you can fill his shoes.

    I loved fallout 3 my favorite game ever! by the end I was a bad ass with every weapon and had a HUGE stockpile at my house. So I just went through and systematically destroyed every town.

    The first day bought Fallout I didnt move from my seat for 14 hours ... litterally ... It sucked me in

    Well I'm liking it so far. Frustrating though when you die and have to start the section you're on all over again...

    save save save save save ....

    kill a guy in the middle of a 100 supermutant fight? get to cover and save.

    Bout to turn a corner in a cave and dont know what around it? save

    just found a super cool item? save ...

    the key to not losing all sanity on Fallout 3 is to save all the time. Or it can get redundant on some of the more difficult missions where you die alot.

    I usually run 4 saves on Fallout. "Safe" saves alternating between 2, and "danger" saves alternating between 2. Awesome game though.

    Indeed. But the heads get boring after a while. Start going for arms. It's really funny when a ghoul is charging you, and you blow their arm off right as they're starting to swipe

    God dammit! So I had some awesome positive karma going, and then I accidentally picked the lock to the armory in Megaton, and now everyone's hostile to me. And of course I didn't have a recent save to revert back to. I think I'll just start over...

    Dont have to start over wait a couple days gametime and everyone will settle down, but the karma thing shouldn't be a big deal in the grand scheme of things
