Fallout: New Vegas is gaming's Lawrence of Arabia

What does one of the greatest films ever made have in common with Fallout: New Vegas? Quite a bit.

The story is too old to be commented.

All New Vegas is missing is an intermission.

This is sorta off topic, but something about NV felt weird to me...Like, it was trying too hard to do the same stuff that Fallout 3 did, while also changing things that didn't need changing. I dunno. It did do a lot of things better than 3, but it just didn't grab me in the same way that 3 did.

well they built NV on a new engine (GameBryo); and essentially made it look the same as F3 with a ton more technical issues.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Fallout fan.

But New Vegas left much to be desired from the series.

It was hands-down the buggiest game I've ever played. Plently of quests were broken due to missing dialog (Capt.HSU!!) I could list a ton of bugs that many would consider game-breaking.
(companions going hostile, quest items stuck in inventory WITH weight ie Motor-runner helm!)

I've never spent so many hours with a game I can talk so negatively about.

Nevermind the fact that The Legion does have a fair share of quests, the game is heavily balanced towards the NCR.

And they said the map is x2 F3; HA! At LEAST 1/3 of it is inaccessable (That's hogwash to F3 fans who are used to exploring corner-to-corner)

Morrowind, Oblivion and FO3 were on GameBryo?

Fallout: New Vegas sounds pretty cool when I'm not playing it.

I loved new vegas. I hear alot of people saying it didnt grab them like f3 but for me it was the other way around. New Vegas had more personality, a bigger better map, better quests, more choices exc. I tried f3 and it never clicked until New Vegas came, after that i replayed f3 and enjoyed it but it was missing something. I really loved it, exploring has never been so rewarding for me. Hope we get a goty version with all dlc, i still need to replay f3 and oblivion with all dlc so they can take theyre time.
