I really like the Fallout universe – my husband has played every version of the game while I watched. The stories are great and the characters are really engaging. Fallout 4 was the first one I played myself and thought it was a great game. I wasn’t too happy with the end but I won’t spoil it for you if you haven’t played.
Every game is a gritty, post-apocalyptic world where the survivors of nuclear war are either naive “Vault Dwellers” (the main character of every game) or “Wasteland Wanders” (the people you have to figure out). Each game is set someplace different in the United States and it’s interesting to see how the setting effects the story. The teams working on the games created some really ingenious tools & weapons go along with their compelling stories.
There is a ton of cool Fallout themed gear available if you really like the world created for the games. I think my favorite is the Art of Fallout 4 book. It includes some AMAZING artwork and more detailed views of the objects in game. A very close second in the “favorite gear” category are the Funko Pop! Vinyl figures. I have the Dogmeat figure as well as the male & female wanderers. SO CUTE!
One of the factions from Fallout 3 or New Vegas (I can’t remember) is the New California Republic. It’s a pretty funny spin the teasing name I heard from my conservative friends back in the South: “the People’s Republic of California” They even had a flag. Husband even designed his own take on their logo:
I don’t remember there being much for the previous games as merchandise has really been taken up a few notches in the last few years.
