Well, in another post that questions my status as a lifetime carrier of the 'Hardcore Gaming Club' card, I have to ask, what made New Vegas better than the original Fallout3? Personally, I found the original to be...err, a little boring. At least in the beginning. And the fact that everything is a greenish gray/brown...*shudder*...what does NV bring to the table?

Fo3 was weak, no question about it. But NV? Story, content. The story itself properly fills out, you're not "dad left the vault, go find him" the story is. "This shit is bad, the world is bad." It's harsh, brutal, who tried to kill you and why. Fuck everyone else, find your own path. It's as close to the original bad shit as you can get in the world, even with the NCR just next door. Don't forget that Obsidian is what's left of Black Isle, pretty much everyone is still there. Including the story writers, and it shows in the story itself.

Characters are more fleshed out. Has a closer FO/FO2 appeal to it, the general zaniness it there, especially with the Wild wasteland trait. The one weakness that NV has, is the lack of dungeon crawling(sewer crawling), but hopefully the next time they'll have a better change at that. I'd really like to see them do something with the Boneyard in it, or San Fransisco.

Imo, if you don't have it? Pick it up when the ultimate pack goes on sale with all the DLC. You won't regret it, usually drops it down into the $15-19 range. I still play it, I have nearly 700 hours into it.
