Great Posts everyone!  When I played Fallout NV I stuck with the NCR, but I also looted pretty much everything.  I had my little Hub in Novac to store and sell what I had stolen.

Aaaah, Fallout New Vegas...

I constantly broke the game with mods and the GECK.

There was once I modded a gun that shoots green lasers using .50 BMG rounds and dealing around 200+ damage per shot fully aoutomatically.

Other than the modding part, its still fun while its vanilla. I usually play as a sniper and always camped at one position and bang them off. I usually take Boone and E-DE for that.

Anyways, what is your favourite DLC? Mine was Old world blues.

Boone is a very good companion in my opinion.  I use him a lot.

I always used Boone and Rex. ED-E was as useless as the drones were in FO3. Probably my favorite RPG, which tempted me to get dishonoured, but I decided against it.
I didn't really like the story in FO3 though. No matter what you do you basically screw over Vault 101 no matter how nice you are, which I never am. (Sorry Butch). It just seemed incomplete. And what was with the whole underground tunnel thing? I get that there are going to be ruins and stuff, but you would think that either BOS would clear some of that out. I don't like that the games didn't let you touch on the fact that the Vaults were just a big science experiment for Val-tech. I love Fallout, don't get me wrong, but they could have done so much more. Which makes me curious, what they would do with another game? I enjoyed the gambling bits, and to those that says New Vegas took away from the post-war feel, it's been centuries since they left the vaults. Eventually towns like that will pop up.
On another note, it's always good for a few laugh. Like when you chase a radroach into a deathclaw den. (Oh, the horror). come to think of it, another letdown of FO3 is the lack of geckos. It. Needs. Geckos.

Forgot to mention this, was anyone else confused by the emphasis they made on your friendship with Amata, in FO3? They kind of built it up a bit, and then you can't take her with you, and, if you are me and love bludgeoning people, she gets mad at you for killing her dad and basically tells you to **** off.
then if you do decide to go back for Trouble on the Homefront, even if you help her and her group out, she still won't come with you, and then says thanks your a hero, now **** off. AND then you can't go back into Vault 101 at all. Unless of course you kill everyone. >.> (That was ONE time!).
You can meet up with a few of the 101'ers outside in the Wastes, but really, what was the point? And don't even get me started on dear old Daddy.

Oh, oh god. I hope they're a troll, because if they're not, I just lost all hope in humanity, or at least the gaming community.

But back to Fallout.
Personally, I had never touched Tactics before a couple months ago. I had played 3 and NV on the 360, maxing both of them out and pumping somewhere around 200 hours into each including DLC's, and 1 and 2 on the computer, never quite finishing them but enjoying them immensely nonetheless. Then I broke my monitor (it was an accident, I promise!), and didn't feel like buying a new one. So I started to look for old-school games to play on my backup netbook. First ones that came to mind were FO1 and 2. I found a package deal on PirateBay for both of those as well as Tactics, so I said what the hell, and got it. I have now played through it once, and can firmly say that I thought it was a great concept, and it should have been revisited. But it was a pretty crappy game, and the storyline wasn't even canon. So I can understand your frustration with it.

Back to NV.
The thing that got me most excited about NV was hardcore mode. I mean, what kind of post-apocalypse game are you makin' if it ain't got survival elements? My playthrough that I maxed it on was hardcore mode with very hard difficulty. Probably broke eight controllers doin' it. But I pulled it off. And Lonesome Road was my favorite DLC. It actually gave the courier a life story, and the way you start to realize that people have been giving you hints towards the conclusion of the courier's story is awesome. Oh, yeah. And all dat Ranger Armor. So much. Ranger Armor. Kitted out every companion in it. Felt like a boss. An NCR Desert Ranger boss.
