We are creating the ultimate guide to the Fallout series, and you can help!

Fallout is a franchise of post-apocalyptic computer role-playing games created by Interplay Entertainment. Originally envisioned as a sequel to Wasteland using Steve Jackson's GURPS, Fallout eventually matured into something entirely its own: A mature post-nuclear setting with a retro-futuristic aesthetic, powered by the originally home-brewed SPECIAL system. Its unique visual identity draws on countless sources, from 1930s Art Deco, through 1950s Americana, to 80s and 90s classics like Mad Max or The City of Lost Children.

The series encompasses six role-playing titles in the series (Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76) and several spin-offs, including a squad-based tactical combat game (Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel), an action RPG dungeon-crawler for PlayStation 2 and Xbox (Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel), a Vault simulation game (Fallout Shelter), and several tabletop games (Fallout: The Board Game, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Roleplaying Game, and the discontinued Fallout Warfare).

Chryslus building.jpg
The Chryslus Building is a ruin of a large office building located in the Capital Wasteland, on the outskirts of Washington, D.C.. It was the main office of Chryslus Motors, which manufactured automobiles before the Great War of 2077. At the time, Chryslus were promoting the $199,999.99 Corvega, which was produced at the Corvega factory, located south west of Vault 108. In the years since the war, it has become a stronghold for super mutants and centaurs. On the ground floor there are at least 6 super mutants, and are a little tricky because they patrol in pairs. They have quite low perception, so one can sneak up quite close and V.A.T.S a few shotgun cartridges their way. If in trouble one can evacuate the building, as they do not seem to follow.

[edit]Did you know...

... that wanamingos are not aliens but pre-War weapons?

... that both the Grafton monster and the snallygaster are the results of FEV experimentation?

... that the Vault Dweller made an appearance in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel?

... that the settlement of Megaton is constructed nearly entirely out of salvaged airplane parts from a nearby airfield?

... that Vegas was first mentioned by Tycho in the original Fallout?

... that the vault doors on the West Coast were the Seal-N-Safe #343 model?

... that the flooded sinkhole in Point Lookout has two Nuka-Cola Quantums that will only float up when you dive towards them?
