For Fallout 1 I apparently installed these according to some GOG recommendations, back in August 2016:
patrikc: Did you use any mods? I'm thinking about going back to the series, but I haven't tried neither Fixt, nor Restoration Project, although I've heard good things, especially about the latter. I usually install just the child patch for Fallout.
1. TeamX Patch 1.2
2. Fallout Children Patch
3. TeamX Patch 1.3.x
4. TeamX NPC Mod (f1npcmod)
5. High Resolution patch
For Fallout 2, I think I didn't install any extra fixes on top of what the GOG (Bethesda) version already has, but at the end of the game I wish I had installed the "Killap" patch because I encountered the "too many quest items" bug which made some areas inaccessible, e.g. I couldn't enter Chinatown in San Fransisco anymore, but luckily I had an old save game where I had not triggered the bug yet. Also some subquests were unsolvable because I didn't get some correct dialog options. These bugs have apparently been fixed by the "Killap" patch, so I'd really install it this time.
You didn't ask for Fallout Tactics, but I used the "Redux 1.3" mod with it. It fixed lots of irritating things in the game, but unfortunately it apparently altered the game a bit too (replacing some weapons and other stuff, and maybe making the game somewhat harder), but still with the fixes and workarounds it had, I think it was worth it.
