26 Games Like Fallout

Games Like Fallout Our games like Fallout page lists amazing RPGs for those wanting to relive the original Fallout or an alternative to the latest FPS experience (Fallout 4, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 3).

The Fallout games takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting where the world has been devastated by nuclear war. While the original games were turn based in nature the newer games in the franchise have been first person shooter orientated. Despite the shift in gameplay the series has remained a deep RPG experience within the same post war civilisation universe.

The titles in the Fallout series are known for their humour, storyline, large game worlds and role playing aspects. It is easy to get lost in the Fallout games for hours on end chasing side quests, exploring the world and simply taking in the unique settings that present themselves.

While the gameplay of the Fallout series has changed throughout the series the core elements have remained the same. Players take on the role of a character within the post-apocalyptic universe with a long distance goal that requires many other main quest lines to be completed first.

The games like the Fallout franchise featured here offer that same level of adventure, content, choice and customisation that the Fallout series provides. Most of the games listed here are games like Fallout 4, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 3 (games that offer a first or third person shooter experience) embedded with RPG mechanics. However, some more traditional Fallout like games have also been included for fans of the original turn based titles (Fallout 1 and Fallout 2).
