Default Resistance 2 or Fallout 3?

I'm bit stuck on what to get. The quick and easy answer would be both, and maybe down the track it would be both, but at this current time, with my gaming going towards fifa 09, nba 2k9, wipeout, and soon lbp, I really can only choose one of this great games.

Now to make things harder, I both enjoy fps, multilayer, rpg's, and story driven games.

But for those who are playing both, what is your recommendation.
I see the great reviews that Resistance is getting, but when I look at it, and I have never played the first, I am seeing a sorta Halo rip off. Am I wrong to think this.

there were games featuring marines vs aliens long before halo you know :P

the easy answer is get which you think you'll enjoy more as fallout 3 and resistance 2 are in vastly different genres.
fallout 3 has an epic single player fps rpg campaign that will take quite some time to complete and a world to get lost in.
resistance 2 not only has a lengthy single player campaign, but massive competitive multiplayer and co-op modes.

you don't have to play either predecessor to enjoy the sequel.

I've gotta admit that neither game looks that appealing but the online aspect of Resistance 2 makes it stand out imo.

My vote goes to Resistance 2.

I'll pick up Fallout 3 after I finally finish Oblivion. They look like the same game to me.

Resistance 2 went from totally off my radar to most anticipated after I played the beta.

I'm sure Fallout 3 is epic and engaging, I just don't have time for that with all the goodness lately.

If you have a good amount of time to put towards a game, go with Fallout 3. Otherwise, grab Resistance 2 now and Fallout 3 later on.

Fallout 3 is basically Oblivion style set in a post nuclear setting with Dialogue, and a pretty good story and is hella fun. ITs said to have like 100 hours of gameplay with several different endings so it has replay value also. I would say definatly no brainer go with Fallout.

can i ask what you guys liked most about resistance 2? (not trying to be an ass just wholly wondering) I played the multiplayer demo and frankly the only thing it has going for it is the 60 player online. Otherwise to me it just felt like a generic space shooter that played like COD. Unless I'm missing something. I'm sure the single player will be great though.

I'd go with fallout, I'm playing it now and it's awesome.

The biggest flaw for it so far is the animations and I think that says alot when you have animations as your biggest complaint.
