ok so i've heard a lot about Fallout 3 and how it has a oblivion style game play and i loved Oblivion. i bought this game about two hours ago. and have been playing it since. progress? 0. understanding of the game? 0.

the only thing i have found on this game is walkthroughs. i don't want to have my hand held throughout the whole game though. What in the hell do you even do? Im walking around the wastelands. finding "city" after "city". then ugly people show up and try to kill me. so i kill them. find another "city" and kill more ugly people.

is there absolutely no storyline or quests or anything? the only thing i have found is this "bael" guy. and he was a d1ck to me. and wouldnt let me in this Citadel. also i have no clue how to repair armor or what to repair it with. no idea where to find a bed or more "stimpaks" or whatever their called.

maybe im just stupid, but this game is making no sense to me so far. at least in oblivion you could find people everywhere to talk to to give you clues. i cant find a single normal person. this is very depressing, can someone give me a link (if there is one) explaining how the freakin game works or something? i just want a basic idea of what to even do.

thanks..

EDIT: tl;dr dont understand a lick of fallout 3. no idea of what to do. not even close.

That's why it's awesome. Just go to cities and talk to people to get side quests. Follow the main quest for now and just explore.

And just go to Megaton, it is a great starting point for everything.

You should have just gone to Megaton as soon as you left the vault. And it's Elder Scrolls style gameplay, not Oblivion!

Sorry, I just get annoyed that Morrowind doesn't get the respect it deserves.

EDIT: Sorry again, but I don't get how it's hard to understand the game. It seems as streamlined as Oblivion.

Well see, the game does have a main story line. Go to the bar in Megaton, ask around and **** about your father, and take it from there. You have to repair armor and weapons with other armor and weapons of the same type.

Oh, and the ending will piss you off. Guaranteed.

(and save before you go inside the place to enter the code, or else the game ends and you can't continue with any sidequests.)

Oh yeah, and the best place to go in the beginning is Old Olney. It's in the top right corner of the map. There's a couple of secret weapons there, I'd suggest going there before you go anywhere else.

never mention F3 and oblivion in the same sentence. F3 is infinitely better, also talk to people maybe? they give you quests.

i suggest you to save all the time without overwriting but a new save so if you mess something up you can just go back. I had like 200 saves or something like that.

Destroy the Fallout 3 disk and go buy Fallout and Fallout 2, they are both much better than the 3rd one.

I'm at level 8 so far. I have everyone in Megaton dead and the bomb disarmed, and I still have found/made more quests! It never ends.
#33
are you ****ting me? you can't figure out fallout 3? there is an obvious story line, "Find your dad" and the first thing you do is go to megaton and ask people about your dad. I've only experienced the problems your having in oblivion. I HATE OBLIVION! that game has a confusing storyline. Fallout 3 is just sooo much better. (im sorry, its just for some reason you really pissed me off. i really liked fallout 3 for it's pick up and play gameplay. you seriously couldn't figure out your supposed to find your dad?)

I don't think that Oblivion sucked. It's environment was incredibly boring, though, especially compared to what Bethesda is capable of with Morrowind.

What do you mean by 2nd city? The freedom of the Elder Scrolls would be ruined if they made you go to cities in a certain order.

my friend is almost like you OP, except that he absolutely hates the game as well.

i was confused like you, but i stuck with the game and have beat the main quest to Fallout 3 and Broken Steel (which, both, were amazing minus some crappy situations)
