Fallout: Biggest "Quantum Leap" RPG
Fallout: Biggest "Quantum Leap" RPG [ Game -> Review ]

More info on Game: Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game

Gamasutra recently asked it's readers:

"Which role playing game over the entire history of the genre do you think has made the biggest 'quantum leap,' and why?"

After a few honorable mentions, they display the top five. Deus Ex and Planescape are in there, but number 1 goes to Fallout.

Fallout - this rpg really has everything a great rpg needs: incredibly robust player character development, not just combat skills; great original story and setting, not just another rpg with elves and orcs; a great turn based combat system for people who like to think, but yet has some of the most rewarding critical death animations that rival any game, not just rpgs; a rich world full of interesting npc characters, enemies and places; functional UI, and great character dialogue system; because the game was open ended and the character development was really deep, it is actually replayable more than 3 times.

You can read the whole thing here.

Thanks to Killzig for the tip.
