I'm with SV on that one, the quality of the writing and the quest design in New Vegas is heads and tails above FO3. Most quests have several different resolutions, decisions made are much more meaningful and there is a fair bit of branching that doesn't really exist in FO3. You're literally the first person I've ever heard say they thought FO3 had better writing and quest design.
I thought FO3 had better open world exploration, there was more stuff to find and it would often have some back story attached. That's really about all it did better though IMO.
