What's stopped you from playing the original 1997 version of Fallout in recent years? Can't find your old install CD? Too busy playing other games? Afraid to once again run into a deathclaw?

Bethesda wants to fix that with a 20th anniversary gift: a free copy of the very first Fallout game. The giveaway is a Steam exclusive, so you can't head to shops like GOG or Humble to claim a copy, but it's otherwise as simple as logging in and choosing "install game" from its Steam store listing. As of right now, you have a little over 24 hours to claim the freebie, which expires at midnight Pacific time on Saturday, September 30. (That was the game's exact release date in 1997, if you're keeping score.)

Can't decide whether to get this. I'm skeptical that a PC game from 1997 can hold up very well.

edit: nevermind, I got it. There wasn't much of a reason not to, as it turns out you're not forced to download it right away.
