Fallout 4

Computer games have come along way in the last 20 years.  Since watching friends play the first and second Fallout, computer graphics have had and influx of technical innovation that is astounding.
Fallout 4 is the latest offering of the gritty Fallout universe.  The Fallout world is an alternate universe based upon a divergent outcome from the 1950s.  It is retro-dystopian atomic powered rampage.
From the Bethesda Softworks Studio, which gave us such blockbusters/timesinks as Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Elder Scrolls: Morrowind, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Fallout 3: New Vegas.  This game is much in the same first/third person RPG that the previous games have given us.  With more polish and continued depth and story development.
The game was excellent, and as Skyrim, has the possibility to sink as much time as you want to surrender to it.  I was lucky enough to only surrender a few weeks of playtime, though they were quite enjoyable.
