They are good, I am a member of the Nexus so have heard about these age's ago and quite enjoyed them, the amateur actor's are sometime's better than
some of the tripe we see on television but for someone who does not know the fallout Universe and it's story they would perhap's seem a little
SO FOR THOSE PEOPLE, correct me if I am wrong about anything.
Set in the Future of a parallel reality there was a massive nuclear war between the US and China that devastated the whole earth, everything was like
an alternate 1950's from the art to the styling and those that survived above ground became savage's fragmenting into tribe's as well as mutation such
as Ghoul's who basically are walking dead zombies but some still have there mind's and other mutant's such as the imaginatively named Super
Those who could afford it knew a nuclear war was going to happen so bought space in massive underground vault city's from a company called Vault Tech
but unbeknowest to those who took shelter in these vault cities the mad scientist in charge of Vault Tech had set each vault on a pre destined
experimental course which ranged from Psychological experiment's on the populace to chemical, biological and socialogical experiment's.
One variant of the Super Mutant's were born of these experiment's but another more intelligent group were created by the military.
The time of the war is the mid to late 21st century in the later versions and your character in the game is released, after being born and growing up
into the rigid culture of a comparatively safe vault, into the world which is now a waste land with pocket's of radiation, mad military robot's,
tribal cannibals, mutated ravenous wolves and all manner of nasty thing's so try to survive.
Amidst the desolation pocket's of mad max like civilization still exist and these are often at war with one another.
In the later game's there is one mad tribe led by a former Vault born who has crowned himself Ceaser and is trying to recreate the Roman Empire in
Another vault originated group are trying to recreate the USA called the New California Republic but are at war with two military groups as well as
ceasar's legion, these two military groups who are also at one another's throat's are the Brotherhood of steel (descended from US soldiers and
scientist's they have powered armor and hoard pre war technology but shun the outside and keep to themselve's except to take into there control any
technology they deem they should control) and the Enclave (who claim to be the legitimate US government but are in reality more akin to Nazi's
directed by a mad AI calling itself the president).
Those born in the vault have a cybernetic glove attached to there arm when they pass through puberty into adulthood, this glove is basically a mini
multi function computer and analysis tool as well as a communication device, think I phone with a Geiger counter and vital function's monitor as well
as a reception radio.
Basically it's a post apocolyptic world were 1950's style never went out of fashion and there technology was a littel different.
