19 Games Like Fallout

Games Like Fallout Our games like Fallout page lists amazing RPGs for those wanting to relive the original turn based Fallout titles or the modern FPS Fallout adventures (Fallout 76, Fallout 4, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 3).

Fallout is a vast franchise of video games set within a post-apocalyptic world that has been devastated by nuclear war. Exploring different locations and stories with each game players explore this world as their own customised character.

These RPG mechanics include branching storyline pathways that allow for player choice and character development that lets you play as a sneaky thief, intelligent hacker or deadly wasteland warrior. The titles in the Fallout series are also known for their humour, storylines and large open game worlds that give you endless hours of side quests and unique encounters.

The games like the Fallout franchise featured here offer that same level of adventure, content, choice and customisation that the Fallout series provides. This list offers a mixture of games like Fallout 4, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 3 (games that offer a first or third person shooter experience) and traditional turn based titles for those seeking games like Fallout 1 or Fallout 2.
