PostSubject: Which Fallout DLC is your favorite?   Fri Jul 04, 2014 6:11 am

A random thought at first has convinced me to make a poll about which story-driven Fallout DLC extension is my favorite.

My favorite DLC extension would have to be Broken Steel because it extended the gameplay almost infinitely unlike New Vegas' ending to where you can't keep playing after the end and see what the effects of your Hoover Dam victory has caused. 

Broken Steel continued the story and kept your choices whether you infected the water with the F.E.V Virus or instead accomplished your mother's and father's dream and gave unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

So that leaves you, The VGU community to vote and discuss your favorite story-driven DLC for the Fallout video game series.

Boy have i been waiting for someone to start off this topic  Very Happy . I am quite fond of Lonesome Road (primarily for the incredible atmosphere), but there is no doubt that my favorite DLC is Dead Money. For I would never have thought that a mere video game DLC would impact me so much.

It seems like a very very unpopular DLC among the general populace, mainly due to some rather substantial annoyances in gameplay, such as the toxic cloud, beeping collar, and invincible holograms. The idea of stripping the player's equipment, and scarcity of items within the DLC did not sit well with many people either.

I thought it was a masterful execution of a multi-layered story, with some of the most compelling and well written characters in the fallout verse or even gaming in general. This even includes characters not directly seen in the DLC. There is the obsession and sanity slippage of Father Elijah in the present, the personal arcs/quests of the very well written Dean, Dog/God, and Christine, as well as the tragic backstory of Vera Keyes and Frederick Sinclair.

All of these story arcs are then brilliantly, and hauntingly tied in to the central theme of Letting Go, and Begin Again, as perfectly encapsulated by
this song. It is a theme that really resonates with me personally, and very thought-provoking. I won't forget about this experience anytime soon.

I would write a 3000 word essay on the masterpiece that is Dead Money, but I know my own lack of articulation will fail me. So this will do for now.

My favorite dlc for Fallout would have to be Point Lookout for Fallout 3. The reason is the atmosphere of the location. It felt mysterious and creepy, and the local mutants freaked me out. The ferry captain whose name I forgot felt genuine to me, a trader who has a secret (not gonna tell in case of spoilers.) The setting itself is different, and I really enjoyed exploring it. The boardwalk is my favorite location of the dlc. Overall size of the map was pretty good.

For me it was Broken Steel, the fact that it made the game effectively an endless story plus the new equipment and locations, made the game pretty fun, and ofcourse you get to see the fruit of your hard labour

Old World Blues, because it's funny and crazy. And I like voice acting in there. Reminds me of Venture Bros. It also has some sad feeling about it, when you learn all the details about characters.

I liked Point Lookout the most because it had the most Fallout 3 fell to it. There were new people to meet, quests for them, and had a nice world to explore. If only the tribals and the swampfolk were so unbalanced.

I guess I am the only person who liked Honest Hearts for New Vegas? The storyline was amazing, gripping the player between the tribal conflict and truly showing the darkness of the mind with Joshua Graham. This character really struggles with the hardships he has endured, and is the prime example of how far you can really fall. The weapons were spectacular, as I've always wanted the .45 in a fallout game. Zion also was a challenge due to it's harsh terrain and really dangerous encounters, though had great rewards for those who explored the whole world space. All in all, great DLC.

I did enjoy Honest Hearts campaign and story. And I agree with you that Joshua Graham made an interesting character. His rise to power in Caesar's Legion and his downfall was very interesting. I also like how his downfall made him have a change of heart and decide to help the good natives of Zion.

No, you aren't the only one who likes Honest Hearts it just didn't take the role of "favorite" to us.

I honestly am tied between Operation Anchorage, and Old World Blues.

Considering I am in love with China in the Fallout games, it was an honor to shoot virtual Chinese commandos, and I wish they had done more with that. Especially when reading that the simulation was highly edited. Was it some sort of secret that needed to be erased?

Old World Blues...Well I really felt for Mobius. I felt so ready to kick his ass considering how much everyone complained about him, and then it got me thinking. He's not such a bad guy after all. He's actually pretty nice.

I'm going have to agree with zehflea and Cotonball. I loved Point Lookout! The location, especially the lighthouse and the level design were the perfect setting. I also liked the scenes in the Mansion with the tribals.

Sadly, although I own all of the DLCs for both FO3 and FNV, I've only played a handful of them, either because I haven't gotten round to the others yet or my game became unstable before I could get to that point.

For example, I haven't played Broken Steel or Dead Money at all. I played most of Old World Blues, but never finished it. Lonesome Road was played very early on and I kind of spoilt it for myself as it seemed like an engame type DLC... something I should have done after becoming more familiar with both NCR and Legion.

Honest Hearts was good, but it lacked something. It felt a little rushed. What I played of Old World Blues felt a bit monotonous, but the Think Tank characters were funny. Doctor Dala!! Very Happy "Shh, little organs..." Haha!

Oh boy. glad someone made this topic finally!

I'm just going to talk about the DLCs in order, as to avoid confusion.

Operation Anchorage: 6/10
This DLC was cool when I played it, but now I only really play it so I can do the glitch to get the winterized Combat armor and Winterized weapons (If you put gary's corpse in the chair before you enter the simulation, when you begin to exit the simulation, go into first person, and rapidly tap E. If you did it right, you should activate Gary's inventory. Dump your items into there, then exit his body, then get the DLC gear from his corpse!). The "Plot twist" at the end was poorly written, and I really avoid this DLC most of the time.

The Pitt: 8/10
I loved the Pitt. It was very entertaining, and had great replay value in my opinion, and the landscape was a gem on its own. I love it when Fallout games have locations that have more character then some of the NPCs. I actually felt the need to survive whenever I entered the Pitt as a slave. Finding the hidden cashes of supplies was great. All in all, a great DLC, but once you beat it, there's really nothing to do afterwords, except for use the ammo press.

Broken Steel: 9/10
The name just sounds awesome. Everyone pretty much loves this DLC, because it does what the campaign should have done: let you play after the ending!
The new weapons were well-distributed around the Capital Wasteland, the new Hellfire armor was unbelievably BADASS, and the tesla cannon was great for killing those pesky Enclave Vertibirds. Having Sarah Lyons eventually evolve into a friend instead of an ally was really rewarding, and Father Lyons sort of turned into a father-figure for me. My only problems with this DLC were centered around the death of Liberty Prime. I was so shocked by his death, I threw my controller across the room while screaming,"NOOOOOO".
I had never been so mad at fallout before. Also, fetching cameras to help rebuild him, even though you knew he was NEVER going to walk again, was heartbreaking, Bethesda. Shame on you!
but really, the new wateland critters were fun and difficult. My only problem with this DLC was the fact that Three Dog talks about the battle for Project Purity even if you start a new game.

Point Lookout: 9/10
As I've said, this DLC tied Broken Steel for my favorite. The swamp people were hilarious and dangerous, all at the same time. Their deaths by my grenades sent me rolling on the floor, laughing hysterically at a hillbilly screaming about his moonshine as I blasted him to bits. The NPCs in this DLC were worthwhile, and I actually began to see Desmond as less of an old coot, and more of an old, grumpy uncle. His battle with the brain was dramatic, and I can't tell you how many times his traps killed me. The first fight at Clavert Mansion was scary, and fun at the same time. Falling through the floor wasn't fun though.  Crying or Very sad 
But seriously, the side-quests were great. I enjoyed the landscape as well all in all, a good DLC, with plenty of replay value, even if it is just to try and save those rich wastelanders in that ghoul hunting expo.

Mothership Zeta: 4/10
Oh god, where to start.... Mothership Zeta was, quite frankly, horrible. I didn't enjoy it at all. They just ran with a horrible gimmick, ruined a beautiful easter-egg, and wasted my time with all of the useless alien weapons and stupid NPCs. I did enjoy the samurai armor a bit, but I still think that Bethesda's time should have been spent on better things.

Now, New Vegas DLCs.

Dead Money: 8/10
I actually enjoyed this DLC on my first playthrough. Maybe it's because it was the first New Vegas DLC to be released, but the horror atmosphere was enriching and totally believable. I found myself mourning the death of Frederick Sinclair. The man was so blinded by love and rage, he spent his entire fortune to build an impenetrable prison for the woman who betrayed him. You can actually find his body in the vault, having fallen onto steel pipes, ending his miserable life of regret and sadness, for he just couldn't let go of the woman he loved.

I grew to hate Dean Domino, his twisted ways, manipulating Vera to trick Sinclair, only because he thought Sinclair was too full of himself! He never wanted the money in the vault, he just wanted to hurt Sinclair, to leave him with nothing. The dark place that Dean calls his heart only changes if the Courier can convince him to be partners, not enemies. When I saw the quest through, the happiest moment for me was seeing the ending slide for Dean, showing that he had truly "Let Go"

Dog/God was my friend, and my enemy. I constantly battled with God until the ending. I feel like the ending of God/Dog was very linear. They either kill you and themselves, or you save them. I really didn't like the aspect of the shattered self that Obsidian represented in Dog/God. I feel the DLC could have been made without him.

Christine is the true embodiment of a dedicated soldier. She took this mission to hunt down Elijah because it was her duty to serve, but it soon evolved into a fit of rage, only wanting revenge on the man that caused her so much pain. Even though she couldn't speak n the beginning, I could tell how much she hated Elijah. Later, her voice actor was very believable, and I feel that it fit her character perfectly, even though she never would have had it if Dean hadn't damaged her so badly (Dean was the one who put her in the Auto-doc).
All in all, the central message of Dead Money was very well-written, I just don't think it had very much replay value. Along with all of the glitches, maybe the Obsidian team was just too overworked?

Honest Hearts: 9/10
This DLC is the true embodiment of hate and revenge. Joshua Graham, the Burned Man, is so full of hatred for the White Legs because they slaughtered New Canaan, that he is blind to how much he's changed the tribes of Zion. Daniel wants to run away to spare the Sorrows the horrors of battle, yet he does not see that the scourge of the white-legs must be stopped. I've only sided with Daniel once, and I hated it. I side with Joshua, but at the end I show him that he doesn't need to kill Salt-Upon-Wounds. The ending is much more rewarding. The worldspace for Honest Hearts is beautiful, but feels rushed. Still a good DLC though.

Old World Blues: 8/10
I LOVED this DLC the first time I played it. The cooky gadgets in the Big MT, the experiments running amok, and how disconnected the scientists were from reality, showed how dangerous technology can truly be. My only complaint was having no companions, and how impossibly difficult the Robo-Scorpions were for me. Seriously! I wasted 1000 whole 5mm rounds on ONE. Jesus people, lower the health a little bit!

But seriously, a great DLC. I feel like the transportoplonder was kind on stupid. Why not just use a train? Oh, right...FATHER ELIJAH DESTROYED THEM ALL.

Anyway, the hints to future and past DLCs was fun and interesting. I perfer Christine's Vera Keyes voice over the one she has in the Big MT recorders.

Lonesome Road 7/10
This DLC was....ok? I feel like the conclusion of the Ulysses story was forced. I didn't want to nuke anyone, but that would mean the death of Ed-E. The only real reason I like this DLC is for the landscape. The new armor and enemies are cool to, but the new weapons are, well, stupid. I never used them. I sometimes just skip this DLC, because I don't really care.

And there you have it! If you were just like "Tl;DR" Here's the verdict:

Favorite FO3 DLC: Broken Steel/Point Lookout

Favorite NV DLC: Honest Hearts

Yeah Mobius was not what I expected, which is not a bad thing. He really did feel harmless and nice, love how he challenges the think tank to keep them sharp. Overall, Old World Blues was a decent add on for me, it had great bits of humor, quirky weapons and armor, and had an interesting setting.

For me it is a tie between Broken Steel (which fixed the... not very good ending of Fallout 3), and Point Lookout (I am a big fan of the Cthulhu Mythos tropes).

Definitely. Sending all those things after you was actually trying to help everyone else and thwart the Think Tank from attacking the wasteland. Wouldn't be the first time we've seen something like that.

For me the Dead money DLC was by far my favourite. All of the other DLC just seem like a continuation of the main game, simply into a new area.

When you travel to the Sierra Madre, well the entire atmosphere of the game changes. Becoming much more survival horror orientated. Couple that will the superior voice acting and you have a winner. (for me at least)

Point lookout would be second on my list.

To be frank, I haven't finished the NV DLC or Point Lookout yet...... so grain of salt with this one.

But Mothership Zeta. Yes, it was pretty bad about the lore, but I loved the gimmick. The retro 60's B-movie aliens have always been cool with me. The style of the alien ship and the "lightning blunderbuss" style of weapons, really works for me. Not only that, it gave a little bit of tactical army, cowboy, and samurai gear too.

Parts of it were drawn out (honestly I really didn't like the space walk), but overall I had fun with it.
