Free Vegas, as for me. NCR and Legion just like animals, fighting for piece of meat. Or a bone. BoS is archaic society, fanatics of pre-war technologies and doesn't really think of people.
But for diversity you can try them all=)

Don't we all? :3

Personally, I always choose my own side during playthroughs, an independant new vegas.

It might sound close-minded, but to me, instead of going through the trouble trying to decide which side is right and which is wrong, I do my own thing, I rule New Vegas myself, choosing what I believe is right, choosing how I feel things should be, instead of allowing someone else to do things their way, thus, feeling there might be a risk of them screwing up and/or screwing with the people of New Vegas and the Mojave Wasteland. Yeah, sounds a bit selfish, but hey, it's a video-game, not real life *mutters under breath that fallout is life*.

Well, that's just how I see things anyway. Anyway, good luck in your playthrough! Smile

All depends on your personal preference and the mindset of your character.
My current character Lily was a framed thief, did time in NCRCF and after the riot she went into the wasteland, at first just getting by, doing some small favors, after a few weeks she started to work for the NCR and other groups as a freelancer but anything she does, its still aimed at being self sufficient and not being under someones thumb.
Ultimately she'll work to make Vegas independent while maintaining peace throughout the region, where its possible.

As someone said over here, it all depends on your taste. But i can tell you that, from what i remember, the ncr and house quest lines are the longest.

Also, if you join the House, you will need a mod to be able to also work with the brotherhood.

Sentinel Prime? I think you mean't Liberty Prime closed eyes smile but give every faction a try before you jump to a conclusion. I personally stay independent of all factions, sure do small favors for the NCR and the Brotherhood but usually keep it at a neutral level.

To me and independent Vegas is probably the best choice for Vegas and it's people out of the factions altogether.
My favourite to follow though is the NCR, I've completed the game with them way more than the others and they're not all that bad themselves really. Plus you can still be friendly with the Brotherhood if you go NCR so all's good Vault boy Smile

It seems like the majority of people including myself prefer an independent Vegas. I have allied with Ncr but never with the legion. They are just so Fu**ed up. I hate the legion so much. Has anyone here actually sided with them?

I usually go Independent Vegas for the same reasons as Panther.

To be honest I don't like any of them.
NCR - Nah they don't really try to help,they have just too much contra points then pro (In my oponion)
Legion - Badass guys I would play as them if they would abolish slavery.
Bos- That what we saw in DC is not the brotherhood. They are "outcasts" and the guys called "outcast" in Fallout 3 are the same brotherhood as the one in Nv,the real Brotherhood.And I think the real brotherhood is way too egoistic for me I don't like them either.

I go with the NCR. The Brotherhood of Steal and the Legion are over glorified raiders.

The BOS you meet in Fallout 3 is not the real Brotherhood, that would Outcasts. The BOs is not interested in helping people, all they are interested in is collecting technology and hoarding it for themselves. That is why the Outcasts left Lyons, because he starting changing their mission to helping people instead of looking for technology.

Its a joke. Look at the endings of New Vegas where you let the BOS live. They starting seizing technology form travelers.

Personally, I don't think there is a right side. Everyone will have their own idea of what's best for the Mojave but no-one truly knows for sure. I sure as hell don't. You really just have to play it out, and be objective as possible about things. You can't let emotions get in the way of true decision making. It sucks they put the fate of the Mojave in the hands of a mailman, eh?

I used to always side with the NCR in all of my play-through's. The more you get to know them though, the more you realize how fucked their system is. The only thing that differentiates them from Caesars Legion, are the Legion slaves. They're both repeating times in history. The legions case: the Roman Empire, ending in a catastrophic collapse. The NCR's case: Fallout lore with the Great War, ending in near-armageddon.

The NCR's whole existence is just one big tug-job. They steal peoples land under the mask of freedom. And god-forbid you try and fight back; defend your land. The Great Khans learned that the hard way. It's their way or the high-way. You work for them, pay their taxes, and follow their laws or you're left to rot in wasteland. You really have no choice unless you favor death. And even then, the NCR can hardly get their heads out of their asses long enough to protect their own communities. So you get hung by raiders or Legion for affiliation with a flag you had no choice but to be under.

The Legion? Fuck them. No matter who I side with I make it my sole purpose to hunt down and kill them. There's nothing I love more than watching a Legionnaire go limp when Boone puts a .308 through their cerebellum.

I take it you haven't played the first two Fallouts.  The Great Khans are raiders.  They terrorized Shady Sands when it was a village, kidnapped their most beloved president when she was just a teenager, and then tried to assassinate her when she was old women.  

They got kicked out of the NCR because they were raiding NCR settlements and killing NCR citizens.  Then when the NCR moved into the Mojave the Khans started raiding NCR caravans.

@cordelionreaver

I played them briefly, so I apologize for lore mistakes. I understand the Khans are raiders. I by no means want to sound like I'm defending them. They're a bunch of shit-heads. As far as the original Khans and Shady Sands go, the NCR was in the right in their actions. What the Khans did back West was despicable, to say the least.

I'm speaking in terms of the Mojave. The NCR does not own New Vegas, as a whole. If a massive army came trotting into the land claiming everything as there own, put the past aside - I would, in the khans case, probably start raiding and ambushing patrols. I know the Khans do it out of hatred for NCR. But it doesn't even have to be Khans. They we're just an example, a poor one on my part; disregard it completely.

Perhaps a more accurate example could be the U.S./Middle Eastern War. If the U.S. military, which NCR military is loosely based off of, came into my neighborhood spouting freedom and democracy, but were the cause of the terrorists in the first place - and most of the death and violence in the area - I would want to strap on a bomb and walk into a patrol base.

And to my point, that it is not the *people* of the NCR's fault; trooper or citizen. It's the politics and bureaucracy behind that war-machine that impede true progress. Rich fucks sending young, confused, and impressionable men and women to die for a hollow cause. Without a clue of just what damage they are causing and what blood is on their hands. All they see are dollar signs.  Just like in real life, this very day. History can and will repeat itself.    

I apologize for my mistakes. Thank you for pointing them out.
