This game is Marmite!
While its predecessor "Oblivion" is still played to an extent. Fallout 3 follows in its wake.
The intro to the game you start off in a cinematic of a baby, there you can alter what you are going to look like in your teens and beyond.
Once you are 1yr you can change your agility, perception, strength etc.
Then when you become 10 you get your armband Pip Boy 3000. This allows you to view your inventory, maps etc.
At 16yr you take a G.O.A.T (a Test) which lets you see what you want to advanced in , Medicine , Explosives etc.
You are woken up by (A)Marta and says your Father has escaped the vault! So your quest is to do the same in search for your Father!
The graphics are very good , the game story for me is borderline and yet Oblivion still beats this game. Or even Fallout 3 is Oblivion ...with Guns!
