In case you missed it, it is the 25th Anniversary of the Fallout franchise.  If you have access to Prime Gaming you can download the ultimate edition of the 2010 entry to the franchise.  This is Fallout: New Vegas and is a spin-off from the main series. It also isn’t developed by Bethesda like 2008’s debut in Fallout 3.  New Vegas is in fact developed by Obsidian Entertainment.  The name may be familiar to a few of you.  They are responsible for games such as Pillars of Eternity, The Outer Worlds, and Grounded.  As of 2018, they also became part of the Microsoft family.

Fallout: New Vegas is a loved title and even nearly a decade ago, it was known they would love to have made a sequel.  It’s a project that after all this time could still happen. We’ve heard the rumors over the months about a sequel.  After all, it’s not beyond the realms of impossibility.  As we know, Obsidian is owned by Microsoft as is Bethesda.  In the meantime, we have the original post-apocalyptic excursion through California, Nevada, and Arizona. So why not revisit one of the most loved titles in the series?

Fallout: New Vegas, Will It Stand Up In 2022

On PC it holds up well with mods altering and enhancing the game.  So, the best version to test today is on the console more specifically the Xbox 360 version running via backward compatibility on Xbox Series X. Visually, the closest in the series to compare with is the third game.  

That small gap has resulted in a better-looking game, especially the colors.  Overall, the presentation of the end product still holds up today and looks impressive.  The gameplay wise it feels a touch more polished than the previous release and stable to play.  It’s nice to have a game we loved still playable today on modern hardware and still as fun to play.
