I have right now 3 games I can always play over and over. The Quest by Redshift, Eschalon 1 and 2 and eventually 3 and Fallout 1 (which I completed) and 2 which I will start soon.

Its ok that 2 of those games on the list have a number of games ahead. Eschalon will have a trilogy and The Quest has like 12 expansion packs each with good storytelling and 40 hours each playtime.

The problem is that Fallout doesn't have enough games in the same vein as the first 2 games. I have beaten the 1st game and Its very unlikely I won't adore the 2nd which I haven't played.

Does anyone else think its possible that somehow someone might be able to make a sequel in the same vein as the originals. I tried the 3rd fallout but couldn't get into it even after I tried.

Its sad really because there are so many builds/characters to make for these games. I'd count tactics but I heard it was more of a party game. Hopefully something happens but I doubt it. Oh well, at least I got 2 fallouts to play :)
New Vegas has a lot in common with the first two Fallouts. It ain't perfect, but if you play in hardcore mode and use a few mods (J. Sawyer has one of his own), it can be a pretty good, in-depth, lengthy, talky experience.
Even though it's still in Alpha - Under Rail feels to me as being similiar to the old school Fallouts
Isn't Wasteland 2 basically like Fallout 1 & 2?

Hold on to those oldies but goodies mate. I highly doubt that Bethesda will roll back the series to the original. I wish Interplay Entertainment had retained a good lawyer back in the day because they were such a rising star in the gaming world. Legal battles (some of which are still being waged) and poor finance management put them in a gaping black hole. Basically, Interplay is all but dead at this point, feeding on feeble game developments for iPhone/iPad platforms.

That is why they sold the rights to Fallout to Bethesda Softworks in the first place. It kept them afloat for a while and part of the deal gave Interplay the rights to "Fallout Online" but it never really got off the ground.Not sure if its even being considered currently. Bethesda is happy with the new direction they took the Fallout series so our only hope is to pray for some new developer to mimic the old-school style of play in some upcoming game series.
Even though parts of it made it into New Vegas, there is still a part of me that hopes someone will use the Wasteland 2 engine and tools to recreate Van Buren (codename for the original Fallout 3). There are plenty of design documents out there and with Chris Avellone being the awesome guy that he is, I'm certain that he would help anyone in getting the remaining details straight. Even so, there is little chance of something like this happening, for both practical and legal reasons (I'm not certain Bethesda would really appreciate it).
Hey deathknight what is it with you an single-character RPG's? Managing a party of multiple characters all with their own skills and abilities, is one of the most enjoyable and satisfying things about the genre.
There are lots of folks who wish the exact same thing, but unfortunately turn-based RPGs seem to be a thing of the past now. I highly doubt Bethesda is going to make another Fallout game that isn't a 1st/3rd person shooter-type. But even if it wasn't isometric or hex-based or turn-based or what have you, I'd be content if it simply captured the feel of Fallout. NV is... alright... in that regard, but I'm really hoping Wasteland 2 turns out well.

Even though Fallout was inspired by Wasteland, they are pretty different settings. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I was always a one-character RPG guy when I was younger because I didn't know anything about tactics but then when I learned from a few games I came to agree with that statement. I always roleplayed the one character I had as my main or that I could be him myself which was neat but the idea that you're a puppet master controlling a few different characters with flaws and abilities is just amazing.

Playing a single character is a more personal experience. Did you really need to ask this?

I think prefer partybased RPG, but even in those games can benefit from some personal connection too.

I think Baldur's Gate did a great job combining the two styles: a detailed central player character surrounded by a cast of fully-controllable NPC party members. But I don't see why you'd dismiss either style. Each has their advantages.

Also, anyone who is a fan of Fallout needs to play Arcanum, which is a superior game. Arcanum is one of my top 3 RPGs, alongside Baldur's Gate and Might and Magic VI.

I do play party games like Avernum, BG and Avadon but in reality they are more about a group working together. Not that that's a bad thing but controlling sole character is more epic than a group for me. I know that a group could get through problems/challenges with very little problems, but a single character taking on challenges by making himself extremely powerful is just too much fun.

Try Daggerfall:
http://theelderscrolls.wiwiland.net/?title=Daggerfall_:_DaggerfallSetup_EN

It's freeware, the version on that site installs just like GOG games for DOS, with a shortcut. Plus that version includes tonnes of bug fixes.
This is probably a long-shot, but have you looked for mods for other games (NWN, etc.) that were inspired by Fallout ? I'd be shocked if you don't find at least a few dozen, and there's bound to be some good ones too.

I agree!
