Guides Released by Prima Games[edit | edit source]
Prima Games has published many game guides to accompany games, such as the 5 game guides they created for multiple games in the Fallout series. One is the Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Official Strategy Guide that has strategies for completing Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. Multiple guides was also made for Fallout 3. Two were made for the first release of the game. One of them was called the Fallout 3 Official Game Guide and the second one was the Collector's Edition of the guide, which includes more pages than the original guide, and also fixes multiple mistakes found in the original guide.
Two guides were also made for the Game of The Year edition of Fallout 3, which has all of the Downloadable content released for the game. They generally have the same naming scheme, the regular edition and the Collector's Edition. As usual, the Collector's Edition has many more pages than the regular edition of the guide. They also made guides for the release version of Fallout: New Vegas named the Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide, and has the same naming scheme for the Fallout 3 guides, the regular edition and the Collector's Edition, but they never created any guides for the Ultimate Edition of the game.
Another guide, the Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide was released when Fallout 4 released, taking a different approach to the guide than the previous guides. It never had any more guides published beyond the Survival Guide. The Fallout 76 Game Guide also released around the same time Fallout 76 released.
