More info on Game: Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game
If you were asked to come up with a top 50 most influential games of all times what would you include? Fallout? Probably... However, 1up doesn't feel that Fallout deserves to be included in their list. Games like Final Fantasy VII, Parappa The Rapper and Ultima Online steal Fallout's place in the 1997 time stamp. While I agree with them on a lot of the games they chose, especially the early ones, I ask:

What the hell is Parappa The Rapper? The screenshot they posted clears things up:

Behold! A revolution in video games!
Furthermore 1up writes:
It was on the list when we started, but was ultimately pushed aside in favor of other games which we felt were more important. (Other games to suffer this dire fate include The Legend of Zelda in favor of its more recent successor, Ocarina of Time, and Fallout, which we love more than Ultima Online but humbly accept hasn't been as influential.)
That's right, Fallout was hardly influential.
