For All Its Success, the Fallout Series Still Hasn't Topped the Original

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | The Top 25 RPG countdown resumes, we talk about Anthem vs. The Old Republic, and more.

We're only seven weeks away from our 200th episodes, so it's time to resume the Top 25 RPG Countdown in earnest. First up: Fallout [download link here]!

We've already covered Fallout: New Vegas in this series, but the original game deserves recognition as well. We talk about how it kicked off one of the best RPG franchises ever; some of its most memorable moments, and why it still hasn't been topped after all these years. Plus, as usual we cover all of the RPG news, as well as how Anthem can avoid the mistakes made by Star Wars: The Old Republic.
