Good idea, felt incompletely done
Narrator sounded extremely stilted, as if he hasn't rehearsed or didn't know the material. Had trouble with iconic series words.
The author has a clear passion for the series (although hard to hear based on the narrator) but needed a little more refinement in his lore and fact research. For example, Fallout 4 is not the only game where you can continue past the endgame, and many factions and much lore from the first and second games is still a part (albeit background) of the later games. The NCR had its roots in Fallout 1, developed in Fallout 2, and became a power in New Vegas.
overall, not a bad piece for someone unfamiliar with the series, but still has the feel of a school research paper. If the author went into more depth and double checked resources, could be a good piece.

This history is no wasteland of information
I must admit, that I have never played Fallout. I am more of a Skyrim player, and will only do so with mods, BUT my kids love Fallout and are always trying to make me play. I got this so I could at least understand what the heck they were droning on and on about. Clinger does a great job explaining Fallout, what it is, the setting, the premise, etc. and then goes on to tell you intersting bits of informaiton about it. My kids absolutely loved this, and if it had been for a game I had played or wanted to play I think I would have though it phenomenol. As it is, I still think he did a great job and managed to holdmy interest nspite of th fact that I had never played before.
Georato does a great job narrating this, and he made the listening fun. You might even think he was a gamer. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
