"Point Lookout" for FO3 had a marvelous set of mini-stories if you read the texts along the way, and the swampy atmosphere was dead-on. I was surprised how good it was.

New Vegas was indeed better in terms of writing than FO3 but you have to agree that New Vegas (the city) itself was tiny and disappointingly so. In some ways New Vegas felt rushed to publication. C. Avellone is the key to what made NV good.

Point Lookout was great but man the bullet sponge enemies really marr an otherwise well designed area. I thought New Vegas the city was fairly well designed to be honest, I wasn't expecting a metropolis or something just due to the engine limitations. I like how they tied its surrounding areas into it. I think the bigger fault with NV was how poorly the content there scales if you do any side content along way to Vegas itself. By the time I got there I was a mini-god and I was just kinda doing things naturally as they came up.

Were you playing on Normal difficulty? With companion(s)? Casual mode? On Very Hard Hardcore, a lot of enemies remain very dangerous throughout the entire game (Deathclaws and cazadores come to mind). Having companions does make the game significantly easier, as they weren't balanced very well, but there are mods that nerf companions so you can enjoy their company without making the game too easy.
