10 Fun Facts About Fallout
Fallout was inspired by Wasteland, an RPG where the player controls a squad of Desert Rangers in a post-apocalyptic Nevada. It’s also very possible that Wasteland 2 may not have existed without the success of the Fallout franchise.
The original Fallout and both Wasteland games were directed by Brian Fargo, which is why Wasteland 2 may feel more Fallout-like than Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel and maybe even Bethesda’s Fallouts, depending on how much of a purist you are.
The Unification Memorial in the Mojave Outpost in New Vegas could be seen as a hint that both franchises exist in the same universe.
