Fallout: New Vegas, the latest entry in the long-running RPG franchise, is released on October 22 and is shaping up to be one of the best RPGs of 2010. Fancy a look, but worried that you've never played Fallout before? Or perhaps your knowledge is just a bit rusty since playing Fallout 3 in 2008? Never fear, here's what you need to know:

It's one of the best RPG series of all time...

The original Fallout started its life in 1997, developed by now-defunct Black Isle Studios. It was an isometric RPG that was effectively a spiritual successor to Brian Fargo's Wasteland. The game boasted a sick sense of humour and fantastic quest design – qualities that helped to gather one of the most devout fan communities of all time. The original games are still popular with many gamers today... though most of them probably have beards and haven't accepted modern gaming.
