I personally love that DLC. Walking around a toxic Villa with a sealed up casino waiting to be cracked. Now mind you my Dead money is modded up who ha. I have safe houses i bring my gear with me and that annoying beeping is gone. Modding makes it that much fun for me. But without mods i still like it but its much harder which can get on a lot of peoples nerves. Idk let me know what my wonderful GU community has to say.

Honestly, dead money is my favourite DLC, even without any mods to make it easier. Probably because it has so much backstory like Sinclair and Vera, Dean planning the Sierra Madre heist etc. I just love that.

Its the best DLC probably ever for me, I think it offers a hard learning curve and expects you too change your game style up a tad which tilts people. You defiantly cant just go head on into everything because chances are you'll die, Alot.

I really like it personally, although I think people don't like it because it's different from the normal NV experience, it puts you in a position where even with your skills, you seem helpless. You're subject to the will of Elijah for a while, you have to comply with the other characters to survive, and you have to be cautious about who you trust and how you approach people. It's a lot more involved but I really do enjoy it, it's probably my favorite DLC, followed by Lonesome Road.

Dead Money wasn't terrible, but in comparison to the other major DLCs, it bombed. The reason why people never liked Dead Money is not because it was difficult, it's because it took away one of Fallout's greatest gameplay elements, exploration. The collar was annoying and it discouraged exploration.

The world was too overly red and misty, and I hated the hologram traders that had no character, only there to be used as a tool for the game.

The DLC is not bad the first time around, but the second time and after it becomes very tedious and annoying.

Though Dead Money does not by any means deserves all the hate it gets, as it was very challenging and fun for me as an experienced super master Fallout ninja, especially on hardcore mode. It had great characters and great lore behind it.

I liked it the first playthrough. Maybe the second too. But after that the mist and the no carry-on equipments just become too tedious.

I actually like that DLC. It had a nice ambience to it. I just wish that the worldspace was expanded upon more.

I'm too aware that a lot of people dislike it, but strangely it's actually my favourite of the DLCs

I'll be honest it was one of my least favorite DLCs. It was so boring to me besides the narrow gunfights with the Ghost People. I consoled command my guns and armor but meh it was boring. Because I TLCed my way through the quests I broke it and so I had to console command to finish it.

Wait...people don't like the Dead Money DLC?! I love it! Most of my game is modded, but for the most part Dead Money is completely unmodded. I just love the challenge of moving around the fog, taking on the Ghost People, and trying not to get my head blown off. It's a bit challenging, but honestly it's alot of fun. One of these days I'd like to give Dragbody's Dead Money mod a try. But for now I'm happy how it is. Smile

My only complaint is I wish you could travel back after you complete the DLC. I know there are mods for that, but I wish it was a vanilla thing. Still though it's my favorite New Vegas DLC if not my favorite Fallout DLC in general. Smile

Dead money was way better than all other deals aside from lonesome road , because it was meant as a test of mastery and not as easy as honest hearts and old world blues were you were never really challenged.

@TheThompsonBoss I'm exactly the same with the wishing you could return there on Vanilla terms, doing it via Mods makes me feel it isn't as immersive, and man I hate leaving at the end knowing I'll never be able to come back

Mostly level design choices, being stripped of all you gear and weapons at the beginning, limited ammo and weapons, pretty deadly enemies, the cloud, and prematurely having your collar detonate near radios. I loved all ththe DLCs, but Dead Money was sure BS in a ton of regards. Plus it's far more difficult to complete than most the other DLCs.

I honestly loved the survival aspects Dead Money gave. There were far more dangerous and un-forgiving scenarios in it than the base game and area. My friend and I used to talk about that dlc and compare it to trying to win a gun fight with a knife (which essentially if you run out of ammo that's what's going to happen). We would always say "oh I hate that dlc" but I knew deep down that we liked it because it was a challenge which is hard to find in Bethesda's Fallouts *cough Fallout 4's difficulty is a joke*. But I honestly loved the difficulty and survival aspects of it, and the ghosts creeped me out the first time I played it.

I enjoyed all the dlc, except perhaps Honest Heart which is very boring to my mind. Dead Money is special, a true survival-horror experience with interesting mechanisms and lore. The impossibility to come back after the end of the storyline adds some additional pressure. I'm really intrigued by the Dragbody's horror overhaul. Moreover a separate AWOP plugin increases the number of thrilling locations to explore, making a very consistent dlc.

I don't like Dead Money because the whole radio making the collar exploded really gets on my nerves. It irritates me when I can't find where the radio is located and have to keep running back to keep from exploding. Some parts like in the Casino on the stairs to the vault you have mist and radios and it drives me nuts. Also some radios have the shield around it where you can't blow it up. It's one of the DLC's that I can't finish fast enough to get it over with.
I really really hate the radios.

I personally loved dead money, it really takes you out of your comfort zone and makes you feel like you are in some kind of horror movie.
