@"BaBuBuB" Its so hard to pick a favorite fallout NV dlc, since they are all so damn good) X) . But I have to agree with @"AnarcHist" in saying that dead money is (in my opinon) one of the best fallout DLCs that I have played. It has a good story, unique characters, and the constant fear of the collar going off always keeps me on my toes.

Dead Money, I loved everything about it, from the overall message of it about "letting go" and gear/weapons to the ghost people and the lore around them, how unsettling they are, how the dlc cuts you down removes your gear and forces a hard, gruelling task ahead of you all to get a grand prize that you can't keep you have to... Let go

Overall amazing moral theme for me, even if it could be obnoxious with how it shoves itself down your throat

I'd have to say Divide as well. It was talked about so much when Fallout NV first released. And Ulysses was this huge mystery character that no one knew who the hell was, other than the fact he was supposed to be a companion. Then The divide dlc come by after all this fore shadowing and he's got a badass voice, bad ass dialogue, and he looks like he jumped out of a mortal kombat game lmao.
Best part is the companion mod that I think drag made? The one where you can recruit him after if he survives and he has comments on the mojave. Definitely a great dlc

Better than Fallout 4: The sims by a longshot.

Old World Blues, I just love Science fiction type stories, The crazy inventors, The robots, And the sneaky suit you get. All amazing to me. But I have to admit Lonesome Road is next to it, I love ED-E (and the power to nuke both NCR and Legion) EyeBot Yes-Man

Honest Hearts was my favorite, meeting the Burned Man himself and trying to understand that an unwavering faith in his religion wasn't rattled by being well... burned alive. I've met survivors of horrible car accidents that left them crippled and they usually either looked away from their cross or held it even tighter. Graham saw the errors of his ways and directed his anger to those who betrayed him, I loved to give him the news of how Boone and I stormed his fort and killed Caesar myself.
He was once his childhood friend, it makes you think of how much torture you can put someone through until they see passed that once before-seen face seen as "Friend" and say, "Monster."

Aside from operation Anchorage i don't think any DLC for F3 or NV really sucked. Or at least sucked as much as the F4 DLC.

I get that building a settlement is a big part of the game, but for everyone who's NOT into the whole managing your faction/settlements thing, the DLC isn't really made for them.

No matter what type of character you played as in F3 or NV, you could enjoy every DLC. Even if you played a "retarded brute melee type" character you could still have fun in Old World Blues.

I really enjoyed every DLC from "The Pitt" to "the Divive". So it's really hard to pick a favorite among those.

Old World Blues was definitely my favourite. I wasn't expecting it to be at all, but I absolutely loved it. The writing in it was absolutely genius, the Think Tank and Doctor Mobius were better developed characters than most people you meet in the game, even more than some of your companions. Not to mention the characters you meet in the Sink. It also had the perfect balance of humour and horror, with the experimentation and complete disregard for humanity thing going on.

My only complaint is that the Sink upgrades quests were way too drawn out, I basically didn't even pay attention to the main quest and just sort of stumbled along while looking for the upgrades.

AWWW OP Anchorage is kinda like the black sheep some people even forget about it, but it became the first thing I did with any new play through on Fo3 due to that fucking glitch were you got to take the stuff you got out of the simulation... that was awesome

I really enjoyed Old World Blues. It was a very charming and interesting DLC, which I feel is something a good Fallout game should have. The lore and story were interesting, the weapons and armor were creative, and the characters met along the way just gave it this hilarious twist to what I had thought a Fallout DLC would have. So definitely, 100% Old World Blues.

Dead Money has gotten better for me as I've grown, Old World Blues is just so cool with the whole sci-fi theme, and Lonesome Road just made me feel like a BA. Honest Hearts was fun, but not the best. Broken Steel and Point Lookout are definitely my favorite from FO3.

What made Fallout 4 DLC so disappointing was the fact that they put so much reliance on the settlement system. I personally love the settlement system, but the fact that they made such a huge part of the DLC lineup is stupid. They could've replaced those three DLC with some top tier expansions like the Shivering Isles. Far Harbor was by far the BEST out of the whole DLC lineup. I'm not just saying the best of the worst, I genuinely think Far Harbor is an excellent DLC with fantastic atmosphere and story. The fact that it built upon the story of Nick Valentine(one of the best parts of Fallout 4) and made his story much more complex shows that Bethesda obviously still has it in them to make truly amazing DLC. The DLC could've been even more amazing if they didn't strip down the skill system and kept original dialogue system.

My favorite old DLC would have to be Lonesome Road. Yes, it may be the most linear DLC in the FNV Lineup, but it's linear for a reason. Unlike the other three DLC where you're just a part of a bigger conflict. Lonesome Road is about YOU and Ulysses. You have a reason for going there than just sheer curiosity. Ulysses called YOU. Ulysses is also one of best characters ever put into Fallout.

I really liked Broken Steel and Operation Anchorage for Fallout 3. I agree with the Fallout 4 DLCs, they were really lacking, and I found that FNV was good but not as good as the F3 DLCs.

The nuka cola dlc was pretty cool there were a few things I didn't particularly like about it. Old world blues was my favorite out of all the fallout games. Its just so funny.

I haven't finished every Fallout 4 campaign DLC yet, but so far, I see the problem is with the core game itself. Things like the dialog system could've improved a lot in the dlc's. And by dialog system I mean its writing. Some options felt useless and they even had the same answers. As I recall, even Todd Howard confessed this.

I personally think good DLC has the same quality as the core game, but adds something either necessary (for free)or unique and refreshing to it. For example, Far Harbor's setting really got me when I first explored the Island, and reminded me of that greenish atmosphere we had in Fallout 3 in combination with Vurt's Flora Overhaul. Plus I like the story so far. Obviously it suffers from the dialog system's issues, but there's nothing we can do about it sadly. As I said the problem with Fallout 4 wasn't the DLC, but the main game. I also think they could've released the workshop DLC like updates, but that's that, they have to make a living.

Concerning my overall favourite DLC, it must be Lonsome Road. For me, Fallout New Vegas had an almost empty world (it's a fucking desert you may say. And, objectively, there ara a lot of interesting locations, very well designed, but you can't compare to the number of locations and dungeons Fallout 3 and 4 have) and felt like a Western, but not post-apocalitic. Lonsome Road added an interesting backstory to the courier, but also brought us to The Divide, a well designed devastated zone, were you could hear the world apocalypse in the wind. I remember when I started it, a friend of mine told me: There it is. Didn't you complain about how the Mojave didn't feel post-apocaliptic? Now you have that.

Being from PA, FO3`s the Pitt I liked alot. Point lookout reminded me of the Jersey Shore so I liked that one too. Anchorage would have been way better it wasn`t a simulation. I didn`t like Zeta too much. Broken Steel was I liked alot and it let you continue playing.

For NV I liked Dead Money the most. Hearing the girls voice on the radio when you finish it always made me sad. Why couldn`t she just become a companion? I liked the lonesome road for the exploration but the story I did not like. The rest of them I could live without.

For FO4 I loved Far Harbor and Nukaworld. Well Nukaworld was ok but since I always play a good guy I killed all the raiders so I probably killed some of the additional content it could have gave me. I don`t really get into settlements so those DLC I could have lived without. The mechanist DLC should have had the Antagonizer in it but it was pretty neat. Building robots was fun even though I left them all in sancuary.
