Some people say that they never felt that invested in hunting Benny, which was obviously meant to be the main plot at the start of the game. I agree that I didn't feel any actual need to go after him other than that seemed to be the way the quests were pointing.
Luckily, despite being made by Obsidian, it still is a bethesda-engine game at heart, and you can ignore the main quest for a longtime.
Some people also complain that they could see the lights of Vegas in the distance, and felt compelled to try to race immediately toward those lights, but were blocked by deathclaws and cazadores. People complained that there was really only one way to go, following the path through primm and all that.

Anyway, the point is, could New Vegas have potentially had a different beginning, especially if Obsidian had been given as much time and resources as they wanted? Could it have started in the NCR and eventually made its way to the mojave? Or are most people satisfied with it, as is?

I never bothered much with the start of New Vegas, honestly though it was a nice one.
But if I could somehow change how New Vegas started, it possibly would be in the 'early ages' of The Courier, where arrived at The Divide with a package that ended up dooming it.

With that in mind, we would probably have more knowledge about The Courier's past, besides of what we already know thanks to Lonesome Road.

That happened all the way back in 2077 though, so it would be that, then a time skip, then the regular opening to NV. Would be a little too jarring imo.

Honestly, I think it happened the way it did for that reason.

That's an interesting idea, to have shown more of the courier's origin, rather than have it revealed at the end of the game by a raving lunatic.
By the time lonesome road came along, I'd long ago assumed my courier had originated somewhere far, far away -- far enough away that he could ask "what's the legion? what's the ncr?"


Fallout 3 had the prequel part in the vault, with some time skips. I liked it on the first playthrough although it was something I saw as quite skippable on replays.

My head cannon has always been that TTW is the truth!!! The courier is the lone wanderer! getting shot in the head sure makes you forget some things huh? But seriously speaking its hard to get a player invested in seriously wanting to kill someone from a simple intro cut scene. So for me I barely touch Benny until late as possible.
