Third -- and I find the discussion on this point intriguing -- I simply don't enjoy NV as much as 3. I haven't been able to put my finger on it exactly, but it's just not as... engaging?... fun... to me. It's good, and I'm glad I got it, but I disagree pretty strongly that it's better than 3. I've played 3 through about 10 times. I'm already bored in the second playthrough on NV.

I'm surprised to hear someone who likes FO2 say this. I find the story in NV much more intriguing, and the moral ambiguity built into some conversation options much more like the first. The sense of humor is back, as is...for lack of a better term...the grittiness.

I absolutely despised the plot in 3, and disliked the ease with which I received a stronghold, as well as Megaton being an obvious dropping off point. I felt like Fallout 3 wanted to remove the need for you to know the lay of the land when trying to find particular items or knowing where to go for services. New Vegas brought both of those things back.

I can certainly understand enjoying 3 -- even though I disliked it as a Fallout RPG, I did play through the game twice. For me, Fallout 3 was a great game, but a lousy Fallout game. To each his (or her) own, though.
