        That would go against the lefty antifa propaganda message of the game.

        The antifa gays who made this troony game would never have made something like that it would detect from their propaganda.

        That's the problem it doesn't feel like a living world because everything is a slave to the plot like as it's the cosmic life force or something and all the side quests are about helping the NCR or fascism bad.

        Maybe Fallout 3 was the true kino after all...

          Nah, frick that and everyone who suggests it. They were right to have the DLC focus entirely on other shit out of a desire not to have people feel pressured into buying it just to "finish" what should have been in the game from the start.

          And we all know if they had sold a Legion DLC the last decade would be nothing but b***hing Obsidian out for the absolute gall in demanding money for content their own incompetence prevented them from adding in the first place.

                Simply not true, there are plenty of locations to explore. True, a lot of them don't have unique weapons but I'd rather take what we got than having a million uniques that look like their default counterparts with very minimal changes like in 3 and 4
                >And the not recommended path is filled with fricking deathclaws, lacks quests related to the story and other shit.
                There are more paths than going through the deathclaws, there are also a bunch of places to explore if you go directly north with a couple of unique weapons as well.
                >Well that's weird, you only have to to recruit one of the first companions you come across.
                I only had Rex as my companion on my first playthrough, left most of the side content for subsequent ones.
                >Companions aren't related to the story? You fricking wot m8?
                They are side content even if some of their quests can tie into the end portion of the story quest. Anything that is not essential for the story, I consider as side content

                Mercy isn't tied to a quest either. Even many guns that are "tied to quests" are not directly related and can be missed if you don't explore. Like the AER 14 prototype, you go to the vault it's in for "There Stands the Grass" but it's in an out of the way location that you first find blocked off with junk and need to find a way around to get to the other side of the stairwell to get it, and there's not even a hint it's there, just curiosity of what's on the other side of the junk. If you just ran through the quest only completing the objectives you would not find it.

                also the Remnants PA can be obtained "earlier" or without even interacting with Gannon, the suit is in the deathclaw premonitory, a location that isnt marked on the map, full of deathclaws (including an alpha male and mother) and the helmet is in a cazador cave east of Jacobstown, where you can also find a legendary cazador.
                the game also likes to put valuable loot that isnt unique in places like this too, there's a giant cazador nest behind the Brewer's shack you can go investigate and there's a duffle bag at the centre with reinforced mk2 combat armor in pretty good condition.

            So you didn't explore anything outside of the main quest. Are you sure you have chosen this game to play not because some person with much better taste had recommended it to you? You know, it is not okay to have a shit taste, your attempt at improving it is somewhat commendable, but you have to begin from less complex things if you want to actually get a better taste and not just fill a checklist of "what not-morons can do".

            I've done it before, completely manageable.
            The AMR has a bunch of problems for early game, namely the price, ammo rarity and repailability and let's not forget the skill requirement of 100 guns to utilize it at it's BASE damage, unlike the Gobi which gets around ~1.75x damage boost at 100 guns.

            The thing is most of the items that are linked to quests are not linked to the main quests. It's side content. Unlike F3, the majority of locations have a marked or unmarked quest related to them tha often provides some background about the location. This is a good thing. F3 was full of random meaningless locations where the best depth you can hope for is some environmental storytelling. But a lot of them don't even have that, they are just generic raider or mutant camp #5 and so on.

          i disagree, i think the way they introduce nipton and legion is unforgettable. its also strategic since you are just done with the ncr introductions. its well designed. and being "natural" in your case means what? you want the main quest to map marker the vegas strip for you and then bombard you with 10 faction quests and introductions. how would you introduce the legion and NCR in any more organic way than its being done in the game? running to the strip and meeting with vulpes there and then all the NCR and House, it wouldnt change anything from how the game already functions since the nipton/primm meetings are irrelevant ,but you get a nice taste of things to come so the player isnt overwhelmed when they get to the strip instead you just get to change your mind if you wanted to side with x instead of y

            All you have to do is look at Fallout 3 and 4.

            You can completely ignore the MQ, go off in any direction you like, and you can still run into/ or learn about major players like the BoS, Institute, Railroad, the whole synth problem, etc. etc.

              being able to run to rivet city from the start of the map isnt really different from running to the strip, you miss out on the introductions of BoS, 3dog (frick him, so thats a good thing) and the wasteland survival guide, you will probably miss paradise falls and the family because the guide breadcrumbs you there. 3dog also sends you to the downtown ruins. so basically you lose out on more crucial stuff than if you just run to the strip.
              >In NV you MUST play in the limited pathway they designed or else the narrative falls apart.
              how come? the opening trailer/cinematic already short introduces NCR+Legion, you dont need to meet them to know what they are doing. at primm, mojave outpost and nipton you get the "tell me more" variant of the introduction, its only after you meet the NCR in places after the strip, and the legion, that you learn about the 2 factions and their true goals. i think the designers made this with the knowledge that some players will just run past the introductions, so you get introduced to the factions twice.

    True, at least in the southern portion of the map and the river part. Those places are barren.
    >Enemy variety is ass also
    Eh, it's acceptable for an open-world game tbh. Also, the enemies are placed rather consistently according to the world so it's nice (Radscorpions in the desert dunes, Nightstalkers in caves, Deathclaws in the quarries and that one place across the river). I've seen worse.

        Chance's Knife is around the corner, close to the Poseidon Station but you have to do some climbing to get it without your ass getting woozy.
        The surrounding area around Goodsprings has some good loot but not the town itself, Primm has Lucky, Lonewolf Radio has the parts to fix ED-E, the Powder Gangers on the towers of the NCRCF have cowboy repeaters, there's a dead Bright Brotherhood member under a bridge close to the derrailed caravan who always has a pretty decent energy weapon, the worker barracks at Sloan have some skill books and if you want to take a shot at Quarry Junction with early level equipment you can get your hands on an LMG

                Anonymous

                Open world shouldn't equal on rails. The only reason why NV was the wa it was is because Obsidian didn't design the game world in a natural fashion that allows players to explore the way they want, and come across the factions along the way.

                Because the major factions just bum rush you the moment you reach New Vegas, they have to force you down this pre-set path to get constitutions to the NCR, Legion, etc. so the player is informed before making a decision.

                If they just changed it to where Benny wasn't just standing in the middle of his casino for no reason(when he should be working on the Plat chip), and just stopped the factions from rushing you the moment you reach Vegas, they could've opened up the game world more, making it an actual open world, and making it more repayable.

              lots of games have a critical path that holds your hand through early game. in fallout 3/4 this is the vault section and the pre-war + vault section. both can be ran through in about as much time as it takes you to run the goodsprings primm nipton novac gauntlet. its a small map.

              Companions in general are way too strong, on Hardcore Veronica tanks shit in her rags like nothing and she's the one companion you can get on PA so she becomes even stronger, specially with something like Greased Lighting or Mantis King on her hands, she chews through every enemy.
              Boone with an AMR is ridiculous and can just solo entire deathclaw nests.
              Gannon also has pretty good damage and ED-E becomes god tier with the LR upgrades, not even mentioning how you can play the first few minutes of it without risking your ass against the marked men and get yourself some decent armour, free 900 caps in the shape of the Arc Welder and a multi-tool ED-E that carries over to the regular game

              yeah in my last very hard (without jsawyer ultimate so enemies are actually tanky) run lvl 5 ed-e soloed the entire desert area with the scorptions+geckos while i was heading towards nipton while i just ran around picking up loot from the dead enemies. i dont play these games for challenge so its whatever. and i like boone(+gannon) and his commentary is appreciated.

The feeling of being a cool bounty hunter goes out the window when my target turns out to be Freddy Krueger, and Marko was utter shit. Russell was probably his best one overall in terms of quality even if I didn't much care about the titular character, and again the bad guy in that mod just fricking despawns in your face so you don't get any ideas of oh I don't know, lying to him before shooting him.

    What annoys me the most is that you are intended to follow the same loop route through the map every playthrough, with the only other option being a challenge route that skips a bunch of intended content.
    So the only point to replaying is to experience different dialogue and outcomes, might as well be some old text only rpg

          Yes because said dialogue choices can lead you to complete quests in different ways or get information about the map earlier for you to check out or you get to find out more about a character you may end up liking more than you thought.
          I fricking hate you you are such a massive moron, you also don't need to do the loop, with the right starter weapon choices you can BTFO the Cazadores on the path north of Goodsprings or clear up the Deathclaws in the path between Quarry Junction and McCarran.

            What's the difference between a sex worker(read: prostitute) and a legion sex slave at this point? Both are indebted to their pimp/owner, one hooked on drugs to keep her subdued while the other is routinely beaten. Both are hunted down if they ever try to escape, like Joana.

            Yes and you can get both perks on either gender so it makes no difference. And the legion gives you like one or two extra pieces of dialogue as a female which is also a nothing burger.

              The different perks give different dialogue. For instance, taking the black widow perk lets you seduce Benny, but taking the male equivalent (confirmed bachelor) doesn’t because Benny isn’t a homo.

    There's a fundamental misunderstanding among Bethesda fans about what Fallout was created to be.
    It's not meant to be a sandbox full of loot for you to delve into and explore, it's a journey through a realised, unforgiving world.

    Fallout has never really been about "exploration" though. You go where the game tells you and you get what you need from there. If you go somewhere where you're not supposed to, the game pushes your shit in, but you can be daring and go to places where you're not supposed to go, but only if you know where they are first.

                I mostly find the delivery of the ideas boring, not the ideas themselves.
                I honestly think Chris is a good writer but I think he put his ideas/themes before the character writing and story in LR, which is why I dislike it.
                I heard LR was pretty rushed though so I suppose it's understandable.

                fair enough, i admit he lays it on pretty thick, in my initial runs i hated listening to him. he is in an unfortunate place having to compete with joshua graham, who has a similar delivery but doesn't constantly interrupt the player while antagonizing him over something that happened off screen. there's definitely room for a better character writing and depiction of the whole divide saga in general. maybe it was a planned DLC or part of LR at some poing? just feels kind of odd how hard avellone focuses on this off screen event with the courier, which IMO doesnt help any of the themes of the main game

                And setting. One of the reasons I like/dislike the Avellone DLC Trilogy is that it eschews the grounded locations of the base game and HH and just makes up these fantasy lands that physically reflect the themes of the story, even if they don't mix well with the setting and are completely apart from the main game

                nta but HH is good, it fleshes out caesar and has a really good one off with the story of randall clark. it just really neede more time in the oven. imagine if it was a similar experience as DM with a heavy focus on survival and crafting and exploration driven story telling. it has bones for a good narrative detailing the rise of the legion but its just not within the scope of a bethesda-like RPG, you'd have to utilize narrative game designs like flashbacks and playing as different characters. fans of fallout would hate that.

                >nta but HH is good
                It's my favorite of the DLCs. It's closer to the base game in thematic and setting, Graham and Randall Clark are amazing examples of writing and VActing in Graham's case).
                I get why people don't like it though, it's very barebones in content, it's a narrative about an NPC, not you.
                But it honestly just resonates with me in a way that the others don't, even DM.
                The idyllic look of Zion, the tribes, everythign just contributes to a great atmosphere that fits

                I think it worked fairly well with the Sierra Madre but yeah you have to suspend your disbelief a lot with stuff like Big MT

                [...]
                Yeah I forgot to mention that, before LR my character was just some down on his luck gambler who took up being a courier for some quick gambling money. Only during LR do I find out he was actually a courier for a long time and apparently some guy was gunning for him for years AND he blew up an entire town by accident.
                It was also implied he doesn't have amnesia after taking a bullet through some dialogue options, but he can't remember that town he passed through all those times is a fricking crater now.

                Honestly when I create a backstory for my character I don't take LR into consideration anymore.

                >I think it worked fairly well with the Sierra Madre but yeah you have to suspend your disbelief a lot with stuff like Big MT
                Yeah, Since the Casino is isolated and unique and all that shit, it's easy to suspend your disbelief on the more outlandish parts, but Big MT essentially works on magic

                HH has a good vibe to it with the little caravan trip but it is obvious they had no time to make these DLCs. A lot of the potentially interesting narratives had to be cut like the travel to zion. In an ideal world the travel there would have been one chapter with its own set of characters and little story arcs, and then once you get to zion proper you have a completely new vibe and set of characters. Or maybe you could choose one of the caravaners who you can save and they can accompany you etc

    Fallout New Vegas actually has unique items, gear, and weapons hidden in random spots in the overworld. I do not fricking get it. Why is the only open world to do that? Why isn't it more common? It just seems so obvious to put unique items in your open world game and incentivize + reward exploration.

    Unique means it has it's own skin, it's own stats, and there is exactly 1 of it in the whole game. New Vegas is the only game that begs you to explore its open world because you might actually find something you've never seen before.

                Could just connect the different areas with buildings like how GNR connects 2 or 3 different street areas. You could even make them like dungeons full of enemies that a player would have to get past to progress.
                Also the rest of the game is a big open world. If they were making the entire map the city then it would be likely that urban cells would be much much larger than they were.
