But it's an individual game and you might play it without ever experiencing FO1.
Or asked the other way around: If you had to tell someone whether he should play FO1 or FO2 (he cant play both), which would you recommend?
What do you think about other "classic" game series like Eye of the Beholder, Might and Magic (3-5, 6-8), Ishar or Realms of Arkania (if you leave the 3rd one out) as sequels in these are also mostly "more of the same"?
