Personal opinion/Question

Post by Zhunter5000 » Thu Nov 29, 2018 2:52 pm

IDK about anyone else, but in !MY OPINION! I believe Fallout 3 was way better than Fallout New Vegas. Reasons?

#1: Nostalgic music/map

#2: Creative story/dialogue

#3: Also nostalgic movement physics.

My question is if anyone else feels the same way. These are just a few reasons, but their my most obvious. I still hope some day it's possible to merge the FO3 moving physics in, but I have to wait.

I always liked FO3 more than FONV myself. I just like the DC area as well as the extensive subway maps. I love going underground and killing all the mutants I can find. I know a lot of people preferred FONV from a technical game play point of view especially the game engine and as far as that goes they are probably right. Though with TTW that is for the most part not as big an issue any more except for points 2 and 3 that you made. But all in all I just personally like FO3. Sometimes I find the FONV map a bit vast and empty myself and I've never really cared for the new Los Vegas city map itself. Though the area immediately around Los Vegas is ok for the most part. Also when I was playing FONV standalone I never ever completed the game and there were a couple of the DLCs that even though I did buy them I never played or completed them unlike FO3 where I played and completed everything.

Exactly my thoughts. I have all DLC for NV, but I'm yet to try OWB, or LR. Also while I like the addition of stuff like reloading stations, and workbenches, other then that I feel like NV didn't feel right. For some reason the voice actors for the NPC's didn't fit for Fallout in my opinion. I still would rather use TTW though, as I'd rather play just FO3 in NV, than raw FO3.

Yeah I prefer Fallout 3 overwhelmingly more then New Vegas. Reasons for why I prefer Fallout 3

-I hate westerns and essentially New Vegas is a western with you being "the new sheriff in town"
-I don't care about the NCR and honestly I just tend to waste them because I think they are uninteresting and stupid.
-I don't care for the Fallout version of Howard Hughes which is what Mr House is so his character does nothing for me.
-The Legion would be alright if they had them be just like the Romans making their own armor and weapons but when instead have them scavenge football shoulder pads and other things from sporting goods stores just makes them silly. Seriously why not just have it where they made their own armor in the likeness of the Romans or medieval knights or something it would've prevented them from appearing goofy and would make sense for them to use real armor against tribals they are conquering. That part alone just killed them for me enjoying them because it just stupid writing from the game designers.
-I don't care for the main factions of the main game and so I really don't care about the main storyline.
-New Vegas itself was disappointing...that's it? Seriously?
-I don't like most of the characters in the main game.
-I could go on but I think I've made my point as to why in my opinion New Vegas wasn't as good as Fallout 3.


Now having said all that I really enjoyed the majority of New Vegas DLC. Old World Blues is the **** seriously that is the best DLC in TTW. Dead Money is good to and grows on you the more you play it. Lonesome Road I actually enjoyed quite a bit as well for it being different. Gun Runners is just a weapon DLC so I'd put it as the worst of the DLC and Honest Hearts honestly sucks to me with the whole cowboys and indians theme and the idiotic storyline having you hunt down walkie talkies.

Agree, though we have to give props to obsidian for what they did in a years time.
