Fallout is one of the greatest RPG games out there. It's set in the post-nuclear, dangerous world of violence and radiation. The game consists of a very detailed and interesting storyline, tactical turn-based combat, and revolutionary character creation style. You can play Fallout for months, but still it's not boring because of many ways of finishing the game. You can be a bad-ass gangster, or a world-saving hero. This is a must-see for all RPG games fans, and it's undoubtedly one of the best gaming classics. Unique, amazing storyline makes Fallout addicting! The Linux copy uses the classic DOS version.

The Fallout game series are some of the greatest RPG games out there. Set in the post-nuclear, dangerous world of violence and radiation. The game consists of a very detailed and interesting storyline, tactical turn-based combat, and revolutionary character creation style. You can play any of the Fallout games for months and it will keep you coming back for more! Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics are one of the few must-play for all RPG games fans, and it's undoubtedly one of the best gaming classics.


It's the year 2161, 84 years after a two-hour-long war that destroyed most of civilization. Mankind soldiers on, living out a hardscrabble life on the surface or holing up in great Vaults built inside caves. You're a member of Vault 13 somewhere in Southern California, and the Vault Overseer's got a job for you: find a replacement water purification chip within 150 days, or your home is doomed.


Fallout 2

Your tribe has survived over ten years of drought but now their reserves are at an end. The village elders have selected you to wear the sacred Vault-suit of your grandsire and travel the perilous Wastes in search of the holy GECK — a mythical piece of pre-collapse technology that can restore the land to bounty.

Fallout Tactics: The Brotherhood of Steel

With nuclear apocalypse looming over the world, several vaults were constructed to contain the best and brightest of humanity. By being shielded from the imminent death, the offspring of these people could reclaim and repopulate the Earth. However, before the entire network could be completed, nuclear war broke out. One of the vaults became militaristic and technology-driven. Using their superior weapons, they were able to claim the surrounding wasteland. The members of this vault formed the Brotherhood of Steel, an organization dedicated to unlocking new and better technologies.

Well if it doesn't work with the desura launcher just install dosbox and run it yourself. :) DuckDuckgo.com to look for the configuration parameters.

I bought this because the comments made it sound like it works on Linux. Whenever I click launch on the game nothing happens. Any suggestions?

Great to see Fallout now easily to install and play on Linux! One thing... Fallout is an RPG, not a Real Time Strategy game no?

Nope. It always was an RPG. And it was always round-based strategy.

I agree with the first poster. This is the original Fallout. One of the /big/ reasons why it's so succesful is because it's turn based and not real-time. Also it's not a strategy game it's a role-playing game, one of the best of its kind.

So the category should be changed.

Old classic. I played with it first in 2010, but I loved it. I think this game must be the idol of every game.
