    Fallout: New Vegas in my opinion is way better than Fallout 3. It has more ways to complete a quest. More dialouge. You get to choose a faction. The worlds atmosphere is a little bit worse than Fallout 3.

  • ImperfectGlitches :[

    Saints Row 4!!!!! Saints Row 2 is a better choice. There was diverse city districts and different cultural groups. Saints Row 4 is Saints Row 3 but remove some buildings and add some objects in the sky. And Saints Row 4 CHANGED the genre from gang warfare to fighting ALIENS!!!!!! Wow Watchmojo just wow.

    New vegas is much better than fallout 3. Both are excellent games, but New Vegas still had some of the original writers from the 90's and the plot, characters, weapons are more refined, everything is better. FO4 is also very fun but lost a lot of that soul. Way too much nonsense DLC that was just assets that already existed in game retooled for the boring base building mechanic. I would have no problem with all the base building mechanics if it didn't seem to be to the detriment of the story, factions, gameplay etc. Generic radiant "defend this settlement" and "build this whatever" were just tedious.

    Fallout is about destruction, moral ambiguity, and choices. Where the hell is the karma system? Why did they dumb down the skill system? Only base stats and perks no skills to be leveled? No lockpicking skill no small guns, big guns, energy, etc? I played it through once, enjoyed it, tried the garbage DLC and haven't touched it since. Such a shame FO4 could have been great.

    But still my point that New Vegas belongs on the list instead of FO3 stands. The DLC for New Vegas was some of the best ever made. Old World Blues with the giant brains and the bad guy that turns out to be the good guy was just top notch.
