12. Re: Fallout 4 Tease? Jan 9, 2013, 10:58 Creston
 
Unlike most people, I actually liked Fallout 3 far more than I did NV, and that was solely because of the map. In Fallout 3, not only is the map larger, but it genuinely feels (to me anyway), like a post-nuclear area around a major city would. Small towns here and there, large stretches of wasteland, weird things to stumble across, and then the ruins of the major city itself. Though it was split up rather awkwardly, you got the feel that DC was a huge city. New Vegas was one street.

And then even though New Vegas was only one street, it still swallowed up a huge amount of the northern part of the map. There really was no feel of exploration, because you'd climb on a hill and New Vegas was always right there. You never got the idea that you ever were more than a stone throw away from NV itself, which made the whole "get to new vegas!" quest kind of ludicrous to me. From where the game starts, it's literally three hills away, and if you're careful (and lucky, depending on death claw spawns), you can get there in about five minutes.

The quests were better in NV (at least the main quest was), but I always felt that it was written with the NCR in mind. If you joined the Legion, basically all you got was "Go kill this NCR camp" a few times and voila, that was about it.

And if you decided to work for Mr House (Was that his name?) you were doing the same quests as the NCR, just with a few slightly different lines at the end. (I was also pretty pissed off when I betrayed House at the end to take power for myself, that in the ending it was made clear that the robot actually takes over, not you. That was just total bullshit.)

NV is a great game, but I played Fallout 3 far, far, far more than I did NV. And I'm pretty fucking excited for Fallout 4.
