[If repost, sorry, please delete]

360 and PS3 versions are both $39.99. Could've sworn it was still $59.99 just a few days ago.

It wasn't worth the $10-15 I think I paid from Sears for the GOTY or the 2-3 PS3 games I traded my one buddy for his copy of the original.

Then again, that's largely cuz I'm not into shooter games w/ RPG elements to them.

I hated Oblivion too, which Bethesda also released.

Why would I pay $60 when I can pay $40? While I'm in this train of thought anyone know about any coupon codes to make this even cheaper?

I think Fallout 3 is excellent - I beat the game twice and will pick up the GOTY edition soon to play through it again.

FWIW, I thought GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption, otherwise known as GTA IV - Wild West Edition, were garbage (I see you have an image of the game under your name).

Just goes to show that everyone has different tastes.

- Don't refer to me as dude, this isn't the 80s
- I have the original & not paying more than $30 for the DLC altogether. If I could rent, I would have done that a long time ago like I did with Oblivion's GoTY disc but I cancelled Gamefly years ago for money reasons.

"I didn't like it at all, so I got it twice!"

Actually, I bought the copy of the original FO3 for PS3 for my friend, but then I wanted to try it out, so I traded him 2-3 $5 HWV sale games for it.

Then he was looking for a copy of it back and Sears had the GOTY on clearance for $14.97 or so at the time, but he couldn't scrape up the cash for it, so I sold the copies I bought(including one for another CAG who also didn't get the cash together)to other CAG's.

FWIW, I thought GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption, otherwise known as GTA IV - Wild West Edition, were garbage (I see you have an image of the game under your name).

Just goes to show that everyone has different tastes.

So because I said I thought FO3 was a horrible shooter w/ RPG elements, you have to shoot back an insult towards Red Dead Redemption?:lol: Like you said in the last sentence of your post, everyone has different tastes.

I might've liked FO3 if it were a bit more sandbox-y. It seemed too much like 'go here talk to X dude, go there get item X dude wanted, run all the way back with Y item for X dude, mission complete after 20 f'n hours'.:roll:

Don't get me wrong. I love long games, but games that add in 20 billion fetch quests to pad their hour count aren't fun.

GTA IV took me an hour longer than Fallout.

I think technically it's an RPG with shooter elements. If you play it like a shooter, I do imagine it's pretty boring since there's about five enemies.

It's just the original with a second disc. So yes, until you update it.

This is actually what I liked most about Fallout 3 when I played it (I'm thinking of picking up the GOTY edition today) was wandering around looking at all the cool locations. I didn't start trying to follow the story until like 5 hours in.

Is this true? Otherwise I'll just pick up the Addon packs from Gamestop the next time a B2G1 is running.

I may actually give it another shot, if I ever get through the rest of my backlog, since I was playing on an SDtv at the time and the game world was pretty dark on that.

So that was another detrimental factor that hindered me trying to get into the game, but that wasn't the game's fault(though it seems most post apocalyptic games are dull/dark/dreary/shades of grey n black)as much as it was me not wanting to adjust my brightness and contrast on my tv I still use for watching tv.

Man I just got this matched on Goozex. I guess I will see if the one I get is in crappy condition I will just re-goozex it back. Can I use my $10 gaming credit I have at GS to further cut down the price of FO3GOTY?

Heh - that's exactly why I thought that GTA IV and GTA IV: Wild West Edition weren't any fun - it was a series of go from point X to point Y (and your point about Fallout 3 being like that is well taken), but in the Rockstar games you can't approach things differently whereas in Fallout 3 you can go stealth, straight up combat, or persuasion. In combat, there are lots of different weapons that you can use and your character is highly customizable (beyond just different costumes). I think that the worlds Rockstar creates are second to none, but I like my games to be meaty in gameplay and mechanics rather than breadth, side quests, and environment.

Whatever - we're not going to change each others minds and that's fine, but it's ridiculous to think that you can chime in about Fallout 3 matter of factly not being worth $10 - $15 and I can't rebut it.

Yep, I just went ahead and ordered one. Local GameStop didn't have any sealed copies of course. Don't know why I even bothered trying.

You can use the 10$ credits. I did for BioShock2. Use code SAVER to get the free shipping.

Not if you already have Fallout 3.
