The History of Fallout in 30 Minutes
Back when Fallout 1 and 2 came out I knew they where great games but I never got around to play them to. When Fallout 3 appeared It was true love right away and after that I played Fallout 1 and 2. The games them self where great, but what I really loved about the Fallout franchise is the background story. Just like in Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings it offers a parallel world with it’s own history. The Paranoid Survivor explains the entire History of the Fallout Franchise Lore in 30 minutes, complete with all the insanity and depression.
The Fallout world diverged from ours soon after World War II. So, while it takes place in the future, it is not our future, but a future as imagined in traditional 1950s style science fiction. The first major change with our world happens in 1969 when the United States is divided into thirteen commonwealths; each of which encompasses several states. The national flag is changed to reflect this and depicts fourteen stars – thirteen in a circle to represent the commonwealths and one in the middle to represent the federal government and the nation as a whole
