I think New Vegas was more of a complete game. I felt like I had choices, where in 3 I really didn't.

Vanilla fallout 3 is much better less guns but more loot location a more active map and lots of random event's all throughout it, were as fnv has a kind of blank barren map with all of the enemies in huddled up bundles scatter about.

But adding in mods fallout 3 crashes and can't handle much, were as in fnv you can arm it to the teeth with mods and have only minor problems

As for story they both are ok if you understand the meaning behind both stories.

I love Fallout 3 more for the story. It truly feels like a fight for survival and makes your character feel like the most important person in the world. Each DLC was beautifully different and took you to another part of the world perhaps. The characters are more iconic and the factions of the Brotherhood and Enclave are far superior than anything found in NV. Loved the Super Mutant and Raider enemies you'd frequently come across. It's just a darker, more survival based epic that really showcased the true feeling of Fallout for me. Of course NV has better weapons and cooler armor. But for a more realistic post-apocalyptic story and feel I'd easily choose 3. Which is why 4 is going to be so awesome too because it goes back to it's roots. I do not have NV whatsoever, but I found it easy to complete and the characters just weren't as inviting and your character didn't feel important enough compared to all the factions. New Vegas better action game, Fallout 3 better survival horror game. Thumbs Up

FO3 -> Best atmosphere, locations, etc.

FNV -> Best roleplaying, mechanics.

The ironic thing is that because of its barren nature, FNV is soooooo much easier to mod and thus far superior when mods are taken into account. It was as if Obsidian said, "Here's a game with a really cool core... you fill in the rest".

@me444 They used lots of historical symbolism, with good reason. If you look at current/recent/historical events all around the world you'll see several patterns that have a high probability of predictable cause and effect.

Not to get all topical... I reeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaally don't want to be THAT guy.

I've always preferred Fallout 3 in terms of the atmosphere and the general feel of the game. It was awe inspiring to scavenge the ruins of post apocalyptic DC. It really felt like you were trying to survive after an apocalypse. New Vegas on the other hand just felt like a random cowboy game in comparison. I definitely prefer the game play itself in Fallout New Vegas but most of those advantages were fixed in fallout 3 with mods. Over all they're great games but I think I prefer Fallout 3 over New Vegas.

Well, I've played both for at least 300 hours each, and I prefer Fallout 3 for its more character driven storyline, great locations, being in the Capital Wasteland, many bands of raiders throughout the wasteland, mathes the retro-futuristic setting better, and the add-on content. Fallout New Vegas offers you more choice and multiple factions to follow therefore giving it more replayability and role-playing mechanics. There is also item system i.e. adding mods to weapons and different types of ammunition. Companions are also more immersive and have more story and even missions specific to them.

But thats just my outlook on this Waving Smiley

I feel like Fallout NV is set in a desert more than a wasteland, It feels like your in a desert rather than a wasteland to me

I thought Fallout 3 had a much better wasteland, more to explore around, tons of random events, less bugs in the base game. It felt like you could do a lot more. Fallout NV had so many bugs, it felt unfinished, there was so much space in the map and felt empty. A lot of people say this, but without mods, its almost impossible to have fun playing it.

New Vegas. I found it more memorable, better in terms of lore, better in terms of roleplaying possibilites, and I just found it all round better.

I find that this video explains a lot of good points about the subject.

IMO if both Vanilla:
Fallout 3 had better atmosphere, maps design, characters
Fallout NV had better guns play, mechanics and story

Bingo, that's exactly what brings a game world to life instead of feeling like your character might as well be in front of a green screen.

The more I think about it, the more I realize I've been poking fun at the same things the video highlights in my writing. Geckos and mantises literally locked inside a fishing lodge? What have they been eating? Megaton has stood there for over 200 years, but other settlements that aren't nearly as old are much more developed, why? For some folks stuff like that doesn't matter, but for me it is absolutely critical. Fallout 3 raised more questions than it answered and many things we experienced were logical contradictions. New Vegas, despite having less time for development, introduced fewer questions without answers. Even though Fallout 3 had a [possibly] superior atmosphere and better-cluttered world, I found New Vegas to be more alive and immersive.

New Vegas will always have a special place in my heart as the game I first started seriously modding too.

I really like to play FONV with mods on and I like FO3 with all the dlc's cause it just makes the game better.

New Vegas for me...it had interesting characters, a much deeper storyline with multiple endings i.e. it gives you the option to join and work with the bad guys(caesar legions)...unlike in FO3 where you're kinda forced to work with BoS.
