Fallout 3 is my fav since its easier and has less bugs.

Fallout 3, one of my top 5 favorite games ever! I played it 3 times on the ps3 and now I'm re-playing it on the xbox. I enjoyed New Vegas but I didn't like the atmosphere of the game as much as i did Fallout 3. While Vegas had new perks and tweaked gameplay, I would still rather play Fallout 3 any day!

tugh one but Fallout 3 was the awesome although New Vegas is more polished in certain areas, the maps lacks the personality of the capital wasteland

Fallout 3.

I dont think fallout new vegas had a very engaging story. I felt more involved in 3 and i felt an attachment because there was a love story in there as well.

I cant really differentiate which one i love more - both are very dear games to me.

I dig you! but ultimately 'Fawkes' is the dividing factor for me. I can complete Fallout 3's main quest in about 18 hours, then i have Fawkes as my personal bodyguard to roam the wasteland for the next 100 hours. Fallout New Vegas lacked that special character. Still, these are the 2 best games i've ever played.

Fallout 3. Dogmeat and Fawkes seal the deal.

Fallout 3 music > Fallout New Vegas music and that in a wasteland is a world of difference

Have to disagree . Fallout 3 is better than NV in every way bar the music. And thats mainly because it has Big Iron by Marty Robbins. And i love him, i shouldnt because i'm not a country fan and i'm 18 but i used to listen to it in my grand dad's car every Sunday and it reminds me of him. So yeah. :D They both have great soundtracks though.

Fallout 3, even though I've only played bits and pieces of New Vegas.

I voted for Fallout 3. It would have been New Vegas if Obsidian actually patched it correctly.

This is kind of a hard one for me. I liked Fallout 3 for being a "god", whereas I liked New Vegas for the role playing elements (such as speech and passive abilities playing much more of a role).

Definitly Fallout 3. I just bought Fallout New Vegas the other day, so I can't give a fair comparison of the two. I have encountered several glitches in F:NV already, such as enemies that are stuck in the ground/rocks.
#22 Posted by Phoenix534 (17774 posts) -

New Vegas is a monumentally better game than 3. Fallout 3 lacked a lot of the significant feel that the Fallout universe has.

#23 Posted by Shazaaman (132 posts) -

I loved them both equally and feel New Vegas is a very worthy successor to 3.

#24 Posted by Legolas_Katarn (15592 posts) -

New Vegas is better in every way and not an insult to the series. So, New Vegas. Especially the PC version where you can easily avoid almost all of the bugs the game shipped with, most that have been patched by now.

Fallout 3 is my fav since its easier and has less bugs.

Easier? Neither game could be much easier.

There both good game i have no fav one. they both have a good storyline to them.

In my honest opinion New Vegas is better in every single way except radio stations (music).

Fallout3 I would give 5/10

Fallout New Vegas I would give 9.5/10

New Vegas has better story, better characters, better questing, better dialogue and better rpg elements.

Fallout New Vegas has a better story and gameplay but is buggy as hell. I have to say Fallout 3 is currently the better overall game.

Fallout 3 was just as buggy as New Vegas on release date. I am just saying.

I had to pick Fallout 3, but mostly because I haven't played Fallout New Vegas as when I bought it at release I couldn't get it to play for more than 5 minutes without crashing. Of course I took it back and swore I'd never buy another Obsidian game again. Fast forward to about a week ago, I picked up the Collectors Edition for $29.99 thinking i'll give it and Obisidian one more chance.

The question I have is of course, have they patched the game enough to be more stable and playable. I think I'd read they did but I visited the forums and didn't see much about it.

I scored both of them a 9.5, but I would give a sleight edge to NV.

New Vegas had better writing and story, Fallout 3 had better everything else.

am I the only one who found the city of NEw Vegas too small and uninteresting, to be honest I expected a big city that had some life very different from the wasteland, like a haven of modern life in te middel of nevada

I thought it was a pretty decent size. Note that New Vegas is not only the Strip, but Westside, Freeside and all other buildings/locations around it - Aerotec building, Sharecroper Farms, Usunagi's Medical Building, Crimson Caravan, Gun Runners, The Thorn and all the rest...

Building-wise, Fallout 3 was way better with bigger locations, better looting and more unique stories behind each building..

yeah I guess you're right but it annoyed me to no end that even the strip was split in 3 different locations and loading screens in between, I guess Fallout 3 disguised it a little better for muy taste wit the subway stations.

I voted Fallout New Vegas. It had better characters, story, some good gameplay tweaks, more content. The only negative is that there were some very annoying glitches but I was able to overlook them. I hope to see the next Fallout game made by Obsidian using the Skyrim engine. Hopefully Bethesda will then either make a new IP or stick with the Elder Scrolls games so we don't have to wait five years for The Elder Scrolls VI.

Fallout 3 was just as buggy as New Vegas on release date. I am just saying.

At least Fallout 3 had several patches which fixed the issues. Fallout New Vegas is still buggy as hell and hasn't had a patch in four months.

It's simply quantity vs quality in this case. Fallout 3 has quality. It's got a great story, the world and atmosphere of the game is completely consuming. Every time I started playing it was literally like stepping into a different world. New Vegas has more but the world is far more linear. Your pretty much kept on that road for the start of the game which takes all that explore and discovery entertainment from it. I like Hardcore mode because it makes it's more challenging and "realistic" in the sense it makes your priorities more realistic for such a situation: If the world ends and I'm left alive I wanna be good at shooting, repairing my guns and stuff and patching myself up. Picking locks and hacking the odd computer I find...not so much

Fallout: New Vegas easily. It had a

  • better story
  • better quests
  • better RPG elements
  • better dialogue
  • better NPC's

The only thing Fallout 3 did better was exploration.

#50 Posted by atomiczombie2 (37 posts) -

Fallot 3 had a much richer, more engrossing story to it. New Vegas had more side quests but a shorter, less interesting story. Plus the bugs got so bad for me with NV that I couldn't even continue. My saves were getting corrupted constantly. Grr..
