I just finished OWB for what seems like the millionth time, and I'm surprised by how much it still affects me despite having played it already so much. Has anyone else had that kind of experience with one of the DLCs? If not, what were your thoughts on the DLCs in general?
I know this has probably been posted many, many times, but I'm curious about what everyone has to say about the expansions.

I would say Dead Money gave me the most memorable impression. In my opinion, it is harder than most other DLCs, but the whole story is just gorgeous.

Lonesome Road for me. The story of you fighting ulysses and all the bullshit leading up to it was cinematic. Mainly because honest hearts, old world blues, and dead money just sucked for me. Never liked the other ones besides lonesome road.

Old World Blues and Honest Hearts for me. I really enjoyed those. Lonesome Road was alright, but I mainly do it just for the ability to nuke a faction. I used to hate Dead Money, but upon giving a fair shot and doing it properly I enjoyed it. Still my least favorite DLC but it's better than I gave it credit for.

Dead Money. It has great story and memorable characters, and provides a interesting change of pace.

I loved the atmosphere of dead money myself, the others were cool but i felt like I was just collecting loot and sight seeing and then leaving.

I like Honest Hearth for the map and the environment and Lonesome Road for
the story, the challenge and Ulysses. I love also the fact to learn more about the mojave express and the courier 6.

My favourite is Lonesome Road, the environment really change from destruction to the tunnels, the collapsed building, the enemies coming from the rank of the legion and the NCR. Ulysses really play his role perfectly following you like Gman, every-time you speak to him he seems to know everything you've done in the past and every decision you will make.
My second favourite would be BigMT.

I vote for honest heartsMaybe add a little more, explain why you like this DLC in particular as opposed to the other DLC's so that you are contributing a wee bit more to the conversation, giving people an insight on your point of view. -Keevs

I loved dead money too, it made fallout into a sort of harder survival game, and a bit of a horror game if you play with an ENB and hardcore mode. Took me a while to finish but I made it!

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to chose one to be the "best."
Dead Money immerses you in a survival horror story that's relatively independent of the Courier's story; you want medium pace, suspense, and a fun short story? This one's the best.
Honest Hearts fleshes out the world behind a character somewhat relevant to the main story and offers some action and natural exploration; you want a decent amount of NPC interaction, interesting background, go-at-your-own-pace gameplay, and some natural beauty? This one's the best.
Old World Blues lets you dive into a zany but not lore breakingly so 50's sci-fi trip with a fair balance of silliness and action, which the other DLCs lack. The world is smaller than Honest Hearts' world, but the exploration flows a little more easily as a result, kinda like exploring a shopping mall as opposed to a mountainside; you want pew pew action punctuated with giggles and smooth exploration? This one's the best.
Lonesome Road ties everything back to the Courier, but for some reason I always felt distanced from the story of the Courier's past that it tries to deliver. It tells you things that you've done that you weren't there for, but you were shot in the head, so that might be the point. The exploration is severely limited, but the action is super tight and gratifying. Want a little more grit and COD-esque one track bulletfests? This one's the best. Also, some of that gear you get is sweeeeeet.

My favorite is Honest Hearts DLC, great history, in my opinion, each of the options the end of this DLC is a sad way and there is a perfect solution for the heroes of this DLC.

I love dead money for its murky atmosphere but I prefer old world blue because there are quite places pretty nice to explore and I love the scientists of the Think Thank.
