This is an absolutely stunning game. Of course, the Fallout series always have a few bugs in the combination, but that is okay... it provides a sort of nostalgia into the world you are exploring! This game is very immersive and your Power Armor is introduced as it's own personality, in a way. Plenty of awesome followers and the expansions are pretty entertaining, as well. Definitely a worthy purchase, particularly the GOTY edition!
