Fallout: 6th most influential "RPG" of our time

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

ActionTrip decided to put together a list of their top ten "RPGs" of all time. I use the term RPG loosely though, because A.) WoW is #1 (an MMO), and B.) Diablo (not an RPG) is higher than Fallout. Therefore, this list loses all credibility, in my opinion. Regardless, here are the nice things they had to say about Fallout:

As another co-project of Black Isle Studios and Interplay, Fallout marks a rather bold step in the world of RPGs. To this day, it is honored throughout the gaming community as a truly unique role-playing experience. With an engaging sci-fi backdrop and straightforward character creation system, it didn't take too long for Fallout to claim its rightful place in the industry. One of its main traits was using the so-called SPECIAL character creation system - as most of you probably know, the "SPECIAL" stands for Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck, all of which represent attributes that are essential to the whole experience. Fallout 2 was released one year after the original, receiving rave reviews - even though the game's mechanics remained the same.
