Best of Show: PAX 08

There were loads on fantastic games this year at PAX. With LittleBigPlanet, Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead, Dead Space, Mirror’s Edge, Dragon Age: Origins, SOCOM: Confrontation, Rock Band 2, this could possibly be the best Penny Arcade Expo to date. But only one game continued to stand above all the rest at the show, and the game was Fallout 3.

Bethesda has put a lot of work making this post-apocalyptic game as good as it can get. The booth alone was impressive, with mannequins and the airstream setting the scene nicely, Fallout 3 was impressive all around.

The game was playable at the booth and there was never a small line to play. The developers were there themselves to help people get through the demo — even Todd Howard made an appearance. But the most impressive demo that was there was in the main theater on Saturday. Todd played through about an hour of the game, starting right out of the vault.

Fallout 3 was the best of PAX 08 because it showed off very impressive new content that left everyone wanting much more. Walking through the crowds Saturday and Sunday, people couldn’t stop talking about the game. Fallout 3 is out October 28th on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
