Hello Everyone..

I am a medical doctor. I am currently training to be a radiologist and it has become increasingly difficult for me to give time to video games. But I have always been a gamer at heart. No other entertainment medium has brought me the same joy as video games have. Although these days games don't fascinate or indulge me as they once did yet I wish to keep on playing them.

So are there any other medical doctors out there? who perhaps feel the same way as I do? How is your gaming going? How do you manage?

I was really busy these days. I couldnt watch e3 rather I had no internet for the past 3 weeks! Now when I try to catch up I am bombarded with a sea of information. You guys know any place I can get a summary of everything that happenned at e3? Perhaps something that doesnt require hours on hours of surfing and browsing through stuff?

[QUOTE="Ballroompirate"]

Skyrim is better

No.

OT: New Vegas. Specially for PC, considering there is a mod that allows you to play FO3 with New Vegas, rendering it obsolete.

Even if you can carry the items and stats from mojave over to the wasteland and play parts from both games interchangeably. It doesn't render the comparison obsolete. Considering that you posted such a thing suggests that you like the PC a bit too much? :p While I agree that PC is now a far superior platform for playing either of the games or as you said only platform to play both games simultaneously. This is Not the thread to discuss such a thing. Go to system wars if you want that.

I enjoyed Fallout 3 more due to the emotional context. Starting off by being born, growing up in the vault and then heading out to find your character's dad helped to form an emotional connection to the character you were playing. I cared a lot about my character, I wanted to help her find her dad, I shared in her grief as well as her fears and hopes.

New Vegas is a good game, but I don't find revenge to be as much of a motive compared to trying to survive in a wasteland of the dead. Also I didn't enjoy the political angle of New vegas all that much, neither side was any better than the other, they were all too full of themselves.

Fallout 3 also used emotion in other aspects, like the skeltons in the houses at Minefield, the ruins and the way the game's sun would rise and set on the wasteland. Add that with the music and it was a very emotional game.

Very well said. I too could not connect with my character in New Vegas. Where as I felt pretty much involved in fallout 3, exactly because of the fact that i followed my characters life right from his/her birth through his teenages and finally when i get to leave the vault in search of my character's father the story was too personal and immersive.
