Is it just me, or are the games after NV more shitty than the other?
three isnt half bad. its just the game gets more dumbed down four onward
New Vegas is probably my favorite game. Currently planning on starting my first Fallout 2 playthrough. Got any hints? I already have downloaded the unofficial patch ( https://www.nma-fallout.com/threads/fallout-2-restoration-project-2-3-3-unofficial-expansion.202265/
See that mountain? You can go jump from top of it.
Oblivion and Morrowind are simply better games (lol Bethesda and Toddy have been dumbing the games down since Daggerfall) BUT it's true that Skyrim has a lot of mods (i.e. Falskaar, Wyrmstooth, Undeath) that are better in terms of quality (or less "rough around the edges", I guess) than the mods from Morrowind/Oblivion era.
>>100>1 and 2
Great RPGs with a western post-apocalyptic setting but unplayable for zoomers and late millennials>BoS and Tactics
Shit>3 and NV
Baste and Redpilled>4
Cringe and Bluepilled>76
Not even an RPG so its hard to classify it as a fallout game other than it bearing the fallout name and using 4 assets
Gif related is you playing fallout in 2019 btw
I torrented new vegas a couple weeks ago, it's the first fallout I've ever played. I'm loving it, I've never been much of a gamer (not enough time not enough money) but I know a thing or two about worldbuilding and it's really solid from that perspective. It's very immersive. I love both cowboy and post-apocalyptic aesthetics, as well as the American southwest.
I like how the gameplay is a mix of action and rpg strategy, it's well suited for my tastes. It is not a button-mashing fudgefest or a "card game with animations." The world is big but dense, I never find myself saying "this is boring there's nothing here" or "this is claustrophobic."
As I said I'm not much of a gamer at all, I have no idea if new vegas gameplay is dated from a modern perspective, but from my innocent and unbiased perusal as a scrub among casuals it's a great time. I wish I go on quicksave massacres in real life, too.
I'm doing some research into the series now and rather disappointed to find NV stands more or less alone in the series when it comes to these things. I doubt I'll play other fallouts simply because I've spent around 60 hours on a single NV game and if the others are comparable I just don't have enough time.
