Considering the first Fallout game, released a quarter of a century ago now, was a spiritual successor to the 1988 game Wasteland, it’s fair to say that that game and the entire series have overachieved massively. Today, the Fallout games make up, unanimously, one of the best series in gaming. Of course, with the many high points in the series come moments that even the most hardcore Fallout fans feel it’s best to forget. That makes ranking the games a lot of fun, so that’s what we decided to do. Below is a list ranking every Fallout game ever released – that means not just main series entries, but spin-off games too. There are ten in total, so while you continue the lengthy wait for the next mainline Fallout game, check it out below and find out what are truly the best Fallout games (and worst!) of all time.
