Fallout 3 graphics mod makes slightly scruffy 2008 game-world look like a next-gen wondergame

Fallout 3 has never really been what you might describe as 'a looker'.

The game has been tweaked and modified to within an inch of its life and the result is... well, it looks render-quality, to the point where we could easily be convinced we're looking at a next-gen Fallout 4. Just look at it!

And there have been countless other mods added in to create these stills, including hi-res textures and new character models. For instance, you won't remember seeing this fella in 'vanilla' Fallout 3:

There are far too many screenshots to include here and the collection deserves your attention, so go take a look at Anthemios' Flickr page.
