You mean it was unfairly characterized as "Oblivion with guns"… a childish insult used mostly by those aformentioned old-school elitists. It bore the Fallout name because it was a Fallout game. I get a kick out of the people who try to claim otherwise… mostly with crap like "But it's not turn-based or isometric!"

Your opinion bro, not mine. I remember a lot more from FO3 than I do from the previous games, and I had just replayed FO1 immediately before playing FO3. The only thing I agree was inferior in FO3 was the writing, but I'm more of an exploration guy, and I enjoyed that aspect a lot more in FO3.
