Note: "hours played" is not shown correctly, since I played on windows 8. And therefor had to make som alterations to make this game work.

If you play on windows 8:
1) when you start the launcher, pick tech support and search for Windows 8. Follow all the steps as it is mention in support page. Yo can also just search for it in your browser.
2) If you now start the game, and get error "Ordinal 42 could not be located" you have to download some extra files. Steamcommunity has an great guide for it. https://steamcommunity.com/app/22370/discussions/0/864961175577058035/

I've played this game many times on both pc and ps3 since it's release in 2008. And bought this game on steam for nostalgic reasons. When it comes to RPGs this one of my favorites of all time. And Fallout3 also has the best dlc packs I've ever seen for a game.

This game is highly recommended :)

This game is like a girlfriend.
You meet, fall in love and have a blast when you spend time with her, especially when your exploring dark subway tunnels, if you know what i mean. She looks gorgeous all of the time and always does her best to keep you entertained for hours and hours and hours on end, she has a really nice and amazing futuristic 1950's style to her that no one could hate and she has some really good taste in music too!

Sure, she has a few issues, she takes her time getting ready and sometimes when she is getting ready she will just stop getting ready and go to sleep until you wake her up again. She wont even talk to you or respond to you in anyway if you own a Windows 7 operating system but that can be fixed easily, you just have to convince her that its not all bad and then she will come around!

If you break up with her, you will always find yourself coming back to her and she wont even judge you, she will act like she always did before you split up with her, and everytime you do come back the experience you have with her again is amazing and diffirent to the last time

Buy this game, its an experience you will never forget!

Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a the Capital Wastes

In Vault 101 born and raised
With my dad was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' the Tunnel Snakes Rule
And all shootin some rad roaches outside of the school
When my dear old dad who was up to no good
Started making trouble in my little vault
I got in one little fight and Amata got scared
She said 'You're gonna have to leave, go into the wastes.'

I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my Inventory and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my Pip-Boy
I put my Radio on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.

First class, yo this is bad
Drinking Nuka Cola out of a 200 year old glass?
Is this what the people of Rivet City living like?
Hmmmmm this might be alright.

But wait I hear they're rich, Tenpenny, all that
Is this the type of place that they just send this cool cat?
I don't think so
I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the prince of Wasteland

Well, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude who looked like Enclave standing there with my name out
I ain't trying to get wasted yet
I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like my dad, disappeared

I whistled for some brahmin and when it came near
The guy's name was Moira, she had everything for sale
If anything I could say that this guy was rare
But I thought 'Nah, forget it' - 'Yo, homes to the Wastes!'

I pulled up to the nuke about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the Brotherhood 'Yo homes smell ya later'
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of The Wastes
