Agreed. And to realize how committed they were just take a look at Jsawyer's mod. Taking the time to tweak the game. That's dedication. I respect that greatly

Obsidian, The design work is so much nicer on top of all the points people made about FNV being better than FO3 and FO4. I could wear nearly anything in FNV and be happy with how I looked, I stopped playing FO3 and FNV because of how annoyed I was with how my player looked, and when I did find an outfit in FO4 I liked, It was impractical as I couldn't ballistic weave or upgrade much of it.

when it comes to story, weapons and armor i prefer obsidian but with bethesda (granted they had a lot more time than obsidian) they made the much better city in fallout 3 and i still find new things from time to time even when i last played about a month ago i found the wondermeat "cave" with fallout new vegas i pretty much found everything that could be found in around a month or two,
i think if obsidian where given a few years to make a spin off using the fallout 4 engine adding new mechanics and a similar number of places to explore i think they would out perform besthesda especially when it came to guns,
in my opinion fallout 4 had terrible guns the only two i liked being the combat rifle and 44. magnum if obsidian where to make the weapons its almost guaranteed they'd do a much better job considering the difference between fallout 3 and new vegas's weapons, these are only minor complaints in my opinion though the games made by both companies where incredible but each had downsides the other fixed

Obsidian is better at everything except putting together a worldspace, in my opinion.

Obsidian for better story/characters/writing.
Bethesda for less bugs and making worlds for us to mod around and be silly in.
Here's to hoping for "Fallout: New Orleans".

Just commenting to agree with what has been said.
Despite the fact that I think FO4 have one of the best worldspaces ever, FNV worldspace still manages to be very interesting and then you have the dialog that is just briliant.
Obsidian all the way, no doubt.

I have to go with Obsidian as well. While I have very fond memories of Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, I believe neither of these have the character of New Vegas.
In New Vegas, Obsidian was able to create a game with unparalleled replayability due to a diverse wasteland of interesting factions and creatures, a great atmosphere and in my opinion the best dialog in the last three Fallout games.

Both Beth's atmosphere, characters and settings with Obsidian's storytelling, gameplay and mechanics would do great in Fallout 5.
If only we could get them to work together and collaborate. That'd be the best of both worlds.

To me there are very few things Bethesda does better than Obsidian. One of those is make a better post apocalyptic atmosphere, as the ruined Fallout 3 has a better post apocalyptic destroyed atmosphere than NV. But when it comes down to Fallout atmospheres (the old world slowly being rebuilt but nothing really is happening at the same time) which FO4 and NV attempt to portray it seems, I much prefer the world of NV. I also prefer the more open story of New Vegas. Realistically you can take your time in the NV story as it isnt personal and therefore you shouldn't really feel loyalty to any of the particular actions. But with 3 and 4 realistically you shouldn't do side quests as you are attempting to urgently save a family member, so the lone wanderer/sole survivor wouldn't take their sweet old time building robots and settlements.
