What game has won Best RPG at the 2011 Golden Joystick Awards? We'll give you a clue - it's set in a post-apocalyptic world full of bugs. Yep, it's Fallout: New Vegas.
There is no way to type the disgusted look on my face right now. The Witcher 2 eat NV for breakfast after it has defiled his wife.
Except The Witcher 2, as good of a game it was, didn't even match the amount of role-playing, character-building, choice-picking and good writing that New Vegas had. As it goes, New Vegas was by far the better "RPG".
I understand what you are saying but I cannot agree. I liked NV but it had many flaws. Yes it has many staples of the genre but in throwing everything but the kitchen sink in I feel it suffered. Nothing in the game was exceptionally executed. The Witcher 2 is a far tighter affair with fantastic combat and an unbelievable crafting system. It's also a far more attractive game to become immersed in. Much more focused and brilliantly executed next to NV which is a game that has myriad of technical flaws. And you think NV has good writing? In comparison to what, Buffy the Vampire Slayer fanfic? Obviously this is all just my opinion and i'm just sharing my side. I can't agree with you on the "good" writing though.
Witcher 2 really did deserve it.
I liked New Vegas a lot. Congrats to Obsidian and Bethesda. It wasn't that buggy on PC, on consoles the most recent patch made it playable.
New Vegas is one of my favoritegame of this generation. Have to say, that I love Obsidian games. I don't care what others thing, this games is in my TOP 5 and I spent in Mojave Wasteland about 200 hours of great fun, without any problem since launch of the game...maybe I am lucky but this one of few games I really love : )
Internet high five
New Vegas was more of a Fallout 3.5
Naw. It was more the Fallout 3 that should have been.
As a fan who has played all the previous games, I have to say I enjoyed Fallout 3 far more than New Vegas, while Fallout 3 put you in a linear plot path, New Vegas just didn't have an enthralling story as good as Fallout 3. Fallout 3 had one of the best introductions I've seen in a game, you're there from a baby to child to a teenager leaving the vault. New Vegas just threw you into the shoes of a courier shot point blank in the head. I wasn't as attached to New Vegas as I was with Fallout 3. And as far as the DLC goes, Fallout 3's was better by a mile. Way more colorful variety in location and setting.
I agree to F3 having the 'wow factor' when you first start playing. I just found NV to be more the complete package.
I'm having more fun with Dark souls than I did with NV. I just didn't give me that fresh experiance like F3 did.
Xenoblade got shafted!
Really? I don't agree with that.
witcher 2 didnt get it cause its pc only for now, and for pc to win, it would just upsset the casual deadbox fans a lot. Witcher 2 deserves it no doubt
For once, Obsidian actually made a remotely good game, but I still prefer Witcher 2 over this any day.
I know Witcher 2 is a much more polished game but I just really love the Fallout series this generation and have had nothing but a blast with both. At this point though I am looking really forward to a next generation Fallout:)
now you to release a New Vegas edition with all the dlc Bethesda...so do it
guys this is great news, it means there is going to be a goty editon, can no wait....
