Ranking Every Fallout Game Available Today

One of the best-known IPs in the industry, Fallout, is a series of post-apocalyptic RPGs from Bethesda Softworks. With four main entries and two spinoffs, the Fallout universe was first introduced to the world in 1997 with the release of the original Fallout.

Fallout games have dominated the gaming scene with stellar reviews and impressive sales, excluding the ill-fated Fallout 76. Today, we'll take a trip down memory lane and go through all six Fallout games.

Fallout 1 (1997)

With an advanced character creation system featuring skills, traits, and perks, a good story, and the ability to recruit NPCs, Fallout truly revived the RPG genre.

Fallout 2 (1998)

 Featuring a new story in the same Fallout universe and graphics and gameplay improvements such as NPC commands, Fallout 2 can be considered an overall upgrade from its prequel.

Fallout 3 (2008)

After acquiring the Fallout series and its IP, Bethesda developed and published Fallout 3, directed by Todd Howard. The release came ten years after the release of Fallout 2.

Fallout: New Vegas (2010)

Unlike Fallout 3, Obsidian Entertainment created and Bethesda published Fallout: New Vegas, which boasted an improved storyline. Choices you make can drastically change the game's ending, and quests can end in various manners depending on your actions.

Fallout 4 (2015)

Fallout 4 might not be the best, but it is good. Developed and published by Bethesda, Fallout 4 has a stale main storyline peppered with many fascinating and fun side quests, which is customary of any Bethesda game.

Fallout 76 (2018)

Fallout 76 is widely known for its infamously bug-ridden launch and half-baked promises. The bugs aside, Fallout 76 lacked proper storytelling, NPCs to interact with, and unimpressive graphics.
