This morning we received the March 2009 issue of PC Gamer, which is announces Fallout 3 as their 2008 Game of the Year. As always, it’s really cool and humbling when you end up winning these awards. In addition to the GOTY, the game also captured awards for Best RPG and the Best Ammo. Apparently the editors at PC Gamer really enjoyed firing Teddy Bears with the Rock-It Launcher.

Elsewhere in the issue, Fallout fan Desslock has a column explaining why Fallout 3 is his personal choice for GOTY. Here’s an excerpt:

“More than any other recent RPG, or computer game, Fallout 3 legitimately gives you the opportunity to roleplay a character who could reflect your actual personality.”

For more magazine coverage, hit the jump below.

Within the February issue of Game Informer, the editorial staff named their Top 50 Games of 2008 — a list that includes Fallout 3. Also in the magazine, the game received kudos in the following categories: Top 10 Heroes (#8, Fawkes), Top Ten Moments (#2, Tranquility Lane), and Top 10 Villains (#2, President John Henry Eden). Finally, the GI staff named Bethesda Game Studios one of the top ten developers of 2008.

Rounding out this update, for those that don’t have their PC in the same room as their PS3, the February issue of PlayStation The Official Magazine has the Fallout 3 Bobblehead Guide previously found at GamesRadar. Good luck collecting them all.

  1. Hey guys just wanted to say how much I am enjoying Fallout 3, currently spend my days blogging about this game as I did with TES Oblivion, cant wait for the next DLC, keep up the great work. And completly agree with PC gamers choice as Fallout 3 as there GOTY. Bye for now.

  2. “More than any other recent RPG, or computer game, Fallout 3 legitimately gives you the opportunity to roleplay a character who could reflect your actual personality.”

    Except in the PS3 version which got screwed over.

  3. Um, is the US version of PC Gamer different than the Canada version? Because I live in Canada, and I went to the store to checkout the March issue, and it doesn’t feature Fallout 3. I would be super surprised if that was the case… it kind of sucks.

    Also, the results of the current poll surprised me. Podcasts aren’t really my thing, but to see that they’ve been overwhelmingly voted out of fashion… it’s interesting!
