Fallout is the only RPG ever that has held my interest through multiple playthroughs (I played New Vegas all they way through six times). I could probably fire it up again any time and be totally immersed in it.
I love RPGs, and they are pretty much the only genre of game that I play. I have played lots of them and found many that were excellent and thoroughly enjoyable, but even the best of them didn't make me want to play them through again. Some games try to manufacture interest in repeated playthroughs by offering "medals" or whatnot for doing this-or-that, or playing through with different races/classes/whatever, or seeing all the different endings, but if the game itself doesn't hold your interest, it feels like more of a chore than something you do for fun.
Thanks to its embracing of user-generated content, plus the fact that the game is thoroughly enjoyable to begin with, it is possible to play over and over and never get bored. (The only caveat being that it would be nice if it weren't so plagued with crashes.) The game can be a very different experience every time. Now, I see much anticipation and hope for Fallout 4 to be released, and I am definitely sharing in the excitement. Yeah, I even fell for thesurvivor2299 because I wanted it to be true. Even though I am looking forward to Fallout 4, I can be very happy with Fallout 3 and New Vegas until it gets here.
