Fallout and Fallout 2 are widely regarded as two of the finest RPGs around, which is probably because they're great. If you haven't played them, or fancy returning once again, you can now snag both for free at GOG, as the digital distributor has kicked off its winter sale by offering them as presents. The combat-oriented Fallout Tactics is free too, even if it is remembered less fondly.

The GOG winter sale brings oodles of discounts, as one would expect, along with heaps of daily things. Each day, each GOG user can choose from one of three mystery presents, which range from special discounts to free games. The big daily discount will be decided by a vote between two choices, and, igh, 'YouTube celebrities' will be touting games with 75% off in daily deals. Lots of stuff is cheap, basically.

Here, head this-a-way to get Fallout, its sequel, and the spin-off Tactics for free.

"As the rights for this celebrated franchise are changing hands at the end of the year, GOG.com will no longer be able to sell the titles, although they will remain on users' shelves if they already own them," GOG explained in this morning's announcement. So for goodness' sake, grab them.

        It took a few tries but eventually I got in. I think everyone in the world wants free Fallout games.

          Ya, I finally got a message saying the server was overwhelmed. Better than just getting the 404 and 500 over and over.

        I could never get into Tactics. :\ The real time elements don't quite work.

          You... could play entirely turn-based. It took me a month, though.

            I tried playing turn-based only, but it still turned on real time at certain points. It was really bizarre.

              IIRC, the most turn-based option still is real-time until combat starts, isn't it?

                That's what I thought, but it didn't quite work that way. It's been a long time since I have tried the game, though.

              I don't remember this happening, ever. I like this game and have played it a lot.

            Yeah just play it in smart turn based or whatever where you would go real-time until an enemy was spotted.

            It was so easy to cheese in full real time, just set up a flanking guy with an LMG and they'd mow everyone down

          I liked it but I wished it was a full blown RPG instead of mission based. The multiplayer was fun.
