''Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel'' is the first ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' game to reach the consoles. Released by Creator/InterplayEntertainment in 2004, it's a large departure from the games that came before. The gameplay is GenreShift from WesternRPG to an isometric-view ActionRPG very much in the line of ''VideoGame/BaldursGateDarkAlliance''. Also of note is its soundtrack of {{metalcore}} rather than [[MisterSandmanSequence mid-20th century classics]]. It has since been declared CanonDiscontinuity by Bethesda Softworks.

->''"I don't know if I'll ever feel fully clean again. I so wanted it to be good, because it had been so very long since a good Fallout game. Nowadays, I keep the disc around solely to focus all of my hatred and scorn into it. But I try not to actually touch it, lest its fundamental badness rub off on me."''
