Hello, my name is Kate and I’m Addicted to Fallout 3.

As a gaming journalist, I try to stay on top of all the games out there but it ain’t easy. Some series just pass me by and I don’t discover them until their third or fourth iterations. I didn’t get into The Elder Scrolls the Oblivion series until I hit Oblivion IV [EDITORS NOTE: Check out the comments] and I didn’t get into Fallout until my friend Matt let me borrow his copy of Fallout 3 – a copy which, nearly four months later, I’m sure he’d really like to have back. (Sorry, dude.)

Games like Fallout 3 remind me why I can never, ever log in to any MMORPG game. With single player RPGs, you can eventually finish. Even when new expansions are available for download, those only offer a certain number of hours of game play. But when other people are involved, things get complicated. You form relationships and even when you level up completely, there’s an opportunity to keep going and lead others. That’s not a healthy thing for me. If there’s no end in sight, I’ll keep going.
