My biggest complaint about NV is how NCR centric it is. You really can't afford to have them as an enemy, you lose too much beneficial shit. Same goes for rolling an energy weapons character and befriending Cass but going against the Brotherhood.

I feel like I want to like New Vegas better. The gun variety is more diverse with additions like customization, not to mention feels better than in 3. Quests are arguably better written. And the characters are more interesting. But for some reason I still prefer 3. And I can't fucking explain why.

I feel the same, Vegas is just too busy and the world-space feels so claustrophobic but lacking proper direction

I feel like if they had finished the game it would have felt a lot better but as it is, its just really coarse and hollow as a gameworld

Fallout3 had emptiness sure but it had a proper balance between open solitude and the towering claustrophobia of ruined locations and the city itself, however the claustrophobic nature was never grating or uncomfortable as in Vegas but rather almost homely

skulking around a cramped office building or sewer in Fallout3 was intense and often rewarding both for the thrills thanks to the great soundwork, lighting and enemy placement

its not a horror game obviously and it was never scary, but it was thrilling and did startle you at times, but it balanced that out with nice little rewards, even if that is just coming out from a dank ghoul filled metro to some light bathed gate out into an amazing vista of crumbling art deco edifices surrounding a large urban square

people who say atmosphere is not a valid praise are full of shit
Vegas was jarring and cluttered
FO3 was fluid yet contained

otherwise Vegas is a great game and I love playing it, but it just feels more arcade like than FO3 does and I feel no real connection to any character I make or the world itself, I just like to fuck around

It's laughable that any company actually uses shit like that to determine payouts. How about just setting bonuses off copies sold? At least that's real.

>>254453707

NV isn't claustrophobic so much as it is awkwardly spaced.

The central area surrounding the strip is super, SUPER packed. But off to any of the corners is just blank space full of nothing but Cazadores.

That's why everyone says NV is just brown wasteland, even though a third of the map is riverfront and another huge chunk is snowy forested mountains. Because you go to both places like once and that's it. Shit, outside of that one mutant town and four named Khans that whole third of the map was basically empty. Except for Cazadores.

Seriously they show up basically everywhere with no rhyme or reason. It's like when Obsidian ran out of time they figured "better stick more Cazadores in here" and called it a day.

yea I agree, there is nothing to make me want to explore, even if i find a cool area there is nothing interesting there, no loot, few locations, no just interesting things in the worldspace there
like I remember still from FO3 finding lots of little things even far out of the way
like the crazy preacher on the speakerphone somehwere in DC who sets off nukes if you go near him
or those radio transmitters where you could follow the beeps with your radio to a little bunker nearby full of some things to grab

even the quests
yea there were less named ones but they were all well thought out and implemented not to mention fun, compared to the multitude of filler in Vegas

like the one where you have to hunt down a number of former mercs for their keys, either handing them back to the ghoul thinking nothing of it or investigating further and eventually reaching the single suit of T-51b Armour and feeling like a wasteland god after
>>
>>254454653
This was posted earlier. Like that exact sentence.
>>
>>254455480

Except that they did since, as you say, NV was better. So you contradict your own statement. And NV was at least a real Fallout game with the way the world worked, the endings worked, and how you could influence things. FO3 was just a Bethesda sandbox set in the Fallout 3 world. Supposedly, anyway, since all they did to make it a Fallout world was copy paste elements from the old games with no cohesive plan behind putting them there.

I didn't play NV nearly as much as 3 just because it felt more of the same. Yeah it was better, but...It was still the same? I dunno.

Every quest in Fallout 3 is shit. Like, it's fine to bring up the exploration and so forth since, hey, it's a Bethesda game and that's what they do. But every quest was terribly written and made no sense, or was simply boring fetch shit. The one you mentioned was a series of fetch quests.

>>
>>254456154
No Mutants Allowed seem to generally at least accept it. Many still feel that 1 and 2 are better but they feel it is a worthy successor to actually rather good. The only big complaints I can remember are that Legion is too black and that the game has so much missed potential thanks to being forcefully rushed out.

Literally the only thing FO3 did better than NV were the radio stations.

Are you fucking KIDDING me. Name me these great quests in Fallout 3. Jesus christ man are you shilling for Bethesda or something? The questing in Fallout 3 was easily the worst part of the game, from the main storyline to the side quests.

Nothing made sense, none of them were compelling, and were often written so badly that they were a straight up detriment to the rest of the game. If you're going to praise Fallout 3 at least praise the actually good parts of the game.
>>
>>254456443
>all the quests in Fallout 3 were really well done
Which ones? I really can't remember a single one where I felt it was rewarding. The only side quest that does anything big is blowing up Megaton and the Tenpenny tower quests. Between the two, Tenpenny is shit and Megaton is even worse with the dullest quest and one of the crappiest morals of it all. Seriously, it wasn't fun, it wasn't amazing. The number of terrible quests was ridiculously high. That said, I enjoyed Fallout 3 even if I think it is the worse than 1, 2, tactics, and NV

the thing is I got cool shit and bonuses for those quests rather than just caps or some junk, and you can skip all of them if you wish, but loose the rewards

What gets me the worst about exploring in New Vegas is how lopsided the difficulty spike is.

One second you're trying to claw your way through DOZENS of Cazadores to reach a doctor, desperatley holding on to every single piece of ammo and scrap of healing powder.

The next, it's a pile of Bighorners. Like maybe a couple of slightly agressive bulls, but literally nothing else.

I'm looking at the worldmap right now and literally half the map is totally BLANK. Everything west of the ski resort and east of the Fort is empty. There's like two things after you go north of Outer Vegas and that's it. Which is bullshit, because it means the map presented in game is basically half as big as it looks, and there was no acutal planned content for that space for the most part, by the looks of it.
>>
>>254456680
Mysterious Broadcast > Radio New Vegas > Enclave > THUUUUREEEEE DAWG > that shitty country station that played half the songs from Radio New Vegas
>>
>>254456680
I was fine with Eden on the radio but Three Dawg got grating way too fast. Doesn't help it almost seemed bug to keep on playing Butcher Pete and he kept talking about how I rescued that little boy from the ants and almost seemed to forget I did anything else. New Vegas probably did but I didn't notice as much thanks to his more subdued voice in conjunction with a radio without any narrators and the fact the bgm music, in my personal opinion, was more appealing.

>>254456683
Probably bait but that's the thing. Fallout is post-post-apoc really. And the whole entire point is moving on, rebuilding, and being very gray. Hell, the 50s wasn't even supposed to be as big in it all, I really don't mind the whole 50s thing though.

the android quest, just all the options and the choice between letting him be or going in for the rewards, not to mention again getting some nice stuff in the end
even the broken bow and laboratory where cool locations to go through

Vegas almost all the quests were bland and felt pointless

the only ones I remember being really great was protecting the president, the Repcon rocket questline, and the cannibals in the casino

That's because you're Bethesda's target audience.
>>
>>254457705

Lets be honest, there are some REALLY strong elements to FO3. Not as strong as New Vegas overall, but it has it's moments.

I mean we harp on the subway but going through it for the first time sets the mood for the rest of the game. It's dark, it's grimy, it's long, and by the end you're using every single item you can get your hands on to survive. You reduce skittish players to eating dog meat and FORCE them to scavange.

It gets easier after the first time, but it's a damn effective teaching tool.
>>
>>254457238
on top of that many fo these locations would not even be marked down in FO3

thinks like an empty farm or a random shack

and even the interesting regions like as you said the mountains and ski resort have nothing there other than one short and rather boring quest
like all the potential of having a mutant village and all you get is some quest killing those coyote snake things

or even interesting factions, there are plenty in Vegas but only the NCR gets any real attention

everything else like the Khans, the Brotherhood, the Boomers, the Followers get nothing but their related quests for getting them to side with you on the main one and its really disappointing. even the legion gets next to nothing it might as well just be the enclave
>>
>>254457948
I am sorry, I guess. I was unaware Fo3 vs NV was a common thing. If it makes you feel better, I got the answer to my question (70% for NV) and I will never make a thread about this again. ever.

It was a stupid shitty blade runner reference that doesn't even make sense in the world.

It's true though. The Pitt was a delightful concept, don't get me wrong. It's just more of a sense of it had so much potential and it falls flat. Tenpenny is more annoying because they say the murderer has good karma yet Daring Dashwood has neutral? I suppose I'm being too serious on Tenpenny Tower honestly. It's just the ending absolutely leaves a bitter taste. The actual effort to make people agree or not was rather entertaining. The rest I still argue aren't that amazing. Operation Anchroage was fun and Broken Steel added some good stuff (more Prime, fixing up the terrible ending even if it guilt trips you, glorious Tesla) but it ends up feeling flat. Frankly, if anything I'd say that Point Lookout deserves some mention. It's not perfect but it hits some fun themes and I rather liked the quest that went into the psyche of the main character.

what's the point?
he doesn't want to and will not create any 'civilization' he wants to isolate Vegas from the world and do away with all the 'tribals' which is basically everyone
the casinos are a means to an end and once the courier does his dirtywork he really doesn't need anyone else

its like you didn't understand the point of the snow-globes. he wants to take his little isolated world and then eventually leave with just his robots into space not giving two fucks about humanity or the earth

if anything Independent is better since it is still using his resources but actually here on earth to possible create that civilization you claim

the Followers are the only ones who are actively seeking to better the world and preserve the past as well as advance into the future at a sustainable level

and again Caesar is just taking the Followers philosophy but taking it to the next step and bringing strength and order to the largely eclectic followers organization

House is a power hungry tyrant, who will rule with an iron fist
NCR is run by greedy corrupt politicians, and it sends it's under-trained recruits to go fight the actual wars while the Veterans are protecting farm land back in Cali
Independent has the worst outcomes of all the endings, because for some reason the Courier doesn't actually do anything with his robot army, and just lets anarchy reign
Caesar's Legion enslaves, destroys, or assimilates everything

>>
>>254461565
The thing is, none of the endings are joy. House's perks are that, for the time he remains, he will continue to make new discoveries. Catch is, he's a tyrannical overlord that doesn't give a flip about humans besides them being an ends to his means. He wants to control, to have a snow globe. NCR? The NCR are barely surviving and suffer from corruption in their government. Caesar's Legion just enslaves, destroys, or assimilates and is likely to burn out once Caesor dies. As per Independent, even its flawed. It has potential that, after a certain point, probably after Yes Man finishes his upgrades, it can lead to a better world but it throws the surrounding area into anarchy for a time and is the most variable ending depending on what type of character your courier is.

no the Fallout 3 DLCs were by far the best, Point Lookout's quests were some of the best of the New Fallout games and the Pitt was just a really interesting location, as well as Anchorage and the Aliens were just really fun times

the Vegas ones were decent but I found BigMT kind of grating with the "LEL SCIENCE" humour and abundance of giant damage sponges, not to mention just boring landscape

>>
The only real argument people ever have against the Legion is "Ceasar will die and it will crumble". Which, actually, probably won't happen, you'll just have a power struggle for a while before someone ascends to the throne. Just like in previous dictatorial governments in history. It will be bloody and brutal for a while, sure, but eventually things will get back on track and once that happens a real set of succession laws will likely be passed to prevent the same thing happening again.

The Legion still provides the best chance of real progress and civilization for the Wasteland, and they're willing to do what it takes to make sure all of the anarchistic bullshit finally ends. It's really too bad Obsidian didn't have time to flesh out their route further.
>>
>>254462861
>the point is anarchy IS the best option because these fantasies of the old world and 'civilization' are nothing but illusions as they always have been

This is a bit extreme but honestly it's probably right.

Joining up with the NCR is basically a fantasy that if you hook up with these dudes in uniform eventually things will go back to "normal". Caesars legion promises safety for very few people, since for every one merchant who feels safe there are a dozen slaves and a dozen more child soldiers. House will occasionally use guys like Victor to put on a friendly face, but like victor under it is just a demand for control without a care for who gets hurt.

The idea that the mojave even NEEDS any of these jackoffs is laughable. Between the Kings, the Followers, the Boomers, and even the great families and the random little towns out and bout, it's been proven time and again that the wasteland is full of good, resourceful people who can restore and improve upon old world tech and build their own future.

If you don't play these games on Very Hard you don't get a vote.

Currently pretty deep in FO3 and my only complaint is damage sponge enemies (Super Mutant Overlord, especially). It's a great game if you play it on the highest difficulty and scavenge for things.

I'm going to wait until I extensively play through New Vegas +DLC to decide which I like more, but as of right now the only thing New Vegas improved upon was the shooting, because I feel like having so many factions to choose from severely limits your ability to have one super-long term character.
>>
>>254463820
the whole point of Vegas is this Old West aesthetic where you have these communities functioning independently and peacefully with far less violence and crime compared to the 'civilized' East, that is until the railroads and Federal Government began to move in and impose its right to rule over the people already living in this area well enough and inevitably making their lives a lot worse even if they did bring their convenience and technology with them

Which would be a tradeoff worth considering, if the NCR or Legion had any tech worth a damn. Both wind up using the same single shotguns and only marginally better armor, healing with the same powder and stimpacks, and not really showing themselves as better or worse in an individual sense.

>>
>>254464526
>Very Hard
I'm going to be honest, I've never played Fallout on any mode besides normal discounting hardcore mode. I've just never seen the appeal to it. All it does is make enemies more tanky and you less. Then again I downloaded Project Nevada to make a somewhat roundabout pathway to make the game more challenging whilst not making the enemies stupid tanky. And even then, it still doesn't solve the fact that scavenging everything wasn't the point of Fo.

As per your claim, believe me that having many factions won't hurt it. There's not a single character in 3 that really is super-long term character or significant. Even ignoring the factions, your companions all have their own unique stories and personality.
>>
>>254464967
>neither is really different
And that is why NV is flawed; your picking a philosophy to back, not a faction. The end result is the same for most of these factions.

But that's the point of the two. Legion is blatantly bad, NCR has good people but corrupt government and greedy for land just as much as the Legion, House wants discovery and advancement, and then there is wild card.

New Vegas has one of the worst ways to start an RPG I can imagine.
Anywhere that looks remotely interesting has blockades to keep the player from getting there until later in the game. The start of the game is just far too linear and there are too many areas that are impossible to interact with.

It's not even true blockades. Just very difficult to get past. Besides that, it's got a good story if you travel around the planned route. But maybe I just like the fact that there are certain monsters that are scary as hell and block off paths unless you work to get through them.

This argument comes along in every thread and it's stupid. There are no "blockades" in the game.

New Vegas has a route it wants you to take for your first game, basically just to get you really acquainted with all the factions and give you an idea as to who your character would want to help and who it wouldn't want to help.

Honestly Cazador just fill every single requirement for a stupid fucking encounter.

It's venom lasts long enough to be an annoyance, and companions can't take antivenom.

It's small and moves fast in random patterns even when idle, so sniping it is basically a non-option. Even if you know what you're doing they live almost exclusively in narrow corridors and spot you after the first shot.

To make matters worse it's probably a better bullet sponge than a fully armored soldier. NOTHING should be able to take that many 40mm grenades to the face and keep going.

To cap it all off is how ridiculously common they wind up being. Groups of 4-5 of them every thirty or so feet is just silly.

Can't say i know what FOOK is, i have all the other mods except PJnevada, so i'm not really sure how to help you with that. You should definitely try the nexus forums, those autists tend to have an answer to everything.

Really depends on what sort of character I'm playing.
If it's a cowboy then Chance's Knife, Lucky, and the named Cowboy Repeater.
If it's a desert ranger ala Wasteland lore then Chance's Knife, Maria, All-American.
If it's a tribal then melee weapons like the Bumper Sword.

I have to say /v/ I'm quite surprised.
I thought for sure the poll would show that roughly equal amounts of people preferred FO3, if not more.

Glad to know most of you actually have good taste.

Not like I've actively been killing NCR soldiers all around, I also was previously idolized by them, fuck

Depends. If you play your cards right, NCR ending is (debatably) the brightest overall outcome, but more often than not, with most choices, their reign is pretty shit.
