Why does fallout New Vegas have more of an impact on meme culture than fallout 3 and 4?

Why does fallout New Vegas have more of an impact on meme culture than fallout 3 and 4? The only bethesda title comparable to new vegas in terms of meme influence is Skyrim, and that's just because of arrow to the knee.

            Fallout 3 is the game people online use to prove that they're "sophisticated srs gam3rs." They shit on it to seem cool. Every time I prod at their critiques it becomes clear they didn't really tap into most of the content.
            The main story isn't even bad; it's too constrictive, like all bethesda games, but it's not bad per se.

            It looks ugly as sin in 2008 the same year games like Gears 2, MGS 4, Dead Space and others came out. No I'm not expecting Fallout 3 to look as good as those games but it looks horrendously dated with a crappy artstyle of potato humanoids. Guns suck, theres just endless metro stations and inane locations period, theres not a single memorable npc in any place you go and then theres the green filter and lack of internal worldbuilding. The fact that people quote some bandaged Mormon more than a character voiced by Liam Neeson, a classically trained actor is hilarious.

                Its not memes at all because nobody finds anything memorable about what Bethesda has done to the Fallout franchise. A meme would be quoting FNV's soldier's lines or quoting Dornan's entire military rant all of which give some degree of memorable insight on how the world works and why characters have any amount of ethos. People who have "nostalgia" for what Bethesda has done are just masking their entire personality with contrarianism and irony, because they don't want to be seen as "reddit" or "popular" like 1, 2 and FNV. Thats it really, the fact that NOBODY actually talks about anything related to its 5 DLCs, its guns, its locations, its characters, its graphics, its sound design, its dungeon design in these shitpost threads is why people just don't bother.

                Clean water is portrayed as a massive problem
                The reason fallout 3s world is so much shittier is DC is way more irradiated bc it was the capitol of the US so it got nuked to shit
                Nevada got less nuked so there was more ease with which to set up infrastructure including clean water access
                Cleaning the incredibly irradiated water would dramatically change the fortunes of DC
                If the enclave controls it they'll enforce a quasi fascistic system of control OR genocide everybody depending on who hypothetically would have won out

                Megaton, Rivet City, vault 101 and tenpenney tower, and oasis are the only stable semblances of real civilization in the wasteland. What do all these places have in common? Access to purified water.
                Every other place is a barely held together chaotic shit hole. Why? No access to purified water at scale, the basic foundation of stability. Characters regularly ask you for water and bring up how their ability to engage in basic survival is fricked up and their main day to day concern.

                No I don't only mean them. Water being a problem is referenced by characters throughout the game. Not just the homeless people. They're still barely scraping by, by drinking irradiated water, because when people lack access to a resource, they don't just lay down in the fetal position and wait to die. They still try to do something to survive. Like drinking shitty water.
                But they'd prefer to not do that.

                That's my point. The entire Capital Wasteland is like a theme park because it's filled with complete morons. 200 years and nobody even bothered to ask the simple questions like "where do all these super mutants come from?" or "maybe we should do something about all this debris?" Let's say that the premise of cleaning irradiated water is sound (it actually isn't but let's pretend for now). Outside the main quest, about the only place where "people desperately seeking shelter and clean water" comes up is Tenpenny Tower. in Megaton, Rivet City, Lamplight, Big Town, the Citadel and Canterbury Commons, which are most of the large settlements in the game, people seem to be more concerned with the threat of raiders and super mutants rather than with water. The smaller settlements aren't particularly concerned with water either. The main quest feels very disjointed with the world. That actually would have made an interesting story; a scientist abandons his child because he mistakenly believes that the world needs a hero to bring the "waters of life" to them, only to find out that people are too busy being killed by raiders and mutants to listen to his bullshit and his kid ends up having to slap some sense into him. Would still be late by at least 100 years, but it's better than 200

                I agree, but the question is why are they in a hurry to stop them from turning it on? They could just attack them after activating it. As far as they know the only thing that's going to happen is that the water will be purified, which is the same thing they want anyway.

                I don't know, what *will* they do with it? The Enclave was never very bright, but their motives are never actually explained in 3. What exactly do they want to do with a broken water purifier? Do they want control of the Capital Wasteland? It's a lifeless, radiated dump filled with mutants. It's worthless, but even if they owned the water purifier, what would change? The people of the wasteland don't seem that desperate to get clean water. And even if we assume that they are, that FO3 is just kinda bad at showing it, how exactly does Eden plan to get people to drink that water? Is he gonna get Enclave soldiers to point guns at people to drink it? At that point, why couldn't Autumn skip all this nonsense and just have the Enclave shoot everyone anyway?

                They're very clearly explained. Autumn's side would have used it to re-establish US government control via the enclave and use the water access as a carrot on a stick and leverage over the population. Eden would have used it to genocide everyone with irradiated DNA via FEV. This is explained verbatim, in-game.

                And he's gonna force people to drink that tainted water how? Is he gonna get his soldiers to point guns at people to force them to drink that water? I can buy that a loopy AI would come up with a plan like that, but I don't see why Autumn would ever agree to it. You could just shoot all those people and skip the whole water bullshit.

                And all of this is ignoring the fact that the Capital Wasteland is a hellhole where nobody would want to live. Why would the Enclave want it? It's full of dangerous Super Mutants, deathclaws and stinky mutated morons.

                What the frick are you talking about? The entire mood of the wasteland is desperation, instability and inability to survive. Opposed to the western region, it's a rampantly disordered shit hole where no one is really "getting by just fine" beyond a few hubs that have water access by other means.

                It is.
                Megaton, Rivet City, vault 101 and tenpenney tower, and oasis are the only stable semblances of real civilization in the wasteland. What do all these places have in common? Access to purified water.
                Every other place is a barely held together chaotic shit hole. Why? No access to purified water at scale, the basic foundation of stability. Characters regularly ask you for water and bring up how their ability to engage in basic survival is fricked up and their main day to day concern.

                People have somehow managed to survive for 200 years without dad's water purifier. Even outside of the cities, people seem to get on without it just fine because they have all the time in the world to larp as comic book villains or vampires. How exactly is a lack of clean water a problem now? The only people who seem to be complaining about not having any access to clean water are the hobos outside of cities that always ask for more water no matter how much you give him. Why are they incapable of just taking a few steps into the city? Hell, there's a Mr. Handy in the game who can produce water at a regular rate and they're not exactly rare. Why can't people use those?

                Mr Handys can't produce enough water to sustain a settlement population. And they require upkeep and the technical knowledge to perform it. They're also, pretty rare all things considered actually.
                Nobody in the wasteland is "getting by just fine;" they're barely making it. That's the entire theme of that region. Water would allow them to begin a path similar to what's going on in the NCR and in NV.

                Also why don't homeless people now just go not be homeless? Some people have no willpower. That doesn't change regardless of circumstances.
                And comic book villains and vampires; the villains are two characters, and the vampires are one faction, the comic book villains are clearly insane, and what they're doing helps them to enhance their survival. The vampires, same thing, it's a subsistence strategy.
                Everything everyone is doing in the game is a survival strategy of their own. But it's all fragmented and shitty. Unstable. That's the point.
                The vamps would prefer clean water too. Since there isn't any, they hole up in a metro and consume blood.
                It's a desperate world. Everyone finds a niche.

                He won't have to. They're desperate for water. They will be tricked into drinking it and most won't think twice because they need it.
                Autumn doesn't agree to it. That's why he dies. That's the whole plot. Play the motherfrickin game.
                And eden didn't come up with it. President Richardson came up with it, and Eden learns about this through examining his archives, autumn flips shit, and eden pretends to shelf the plan while secretly always planning on restarting it at the opportune time.
                The enclave want to control the entire US. They have the technological means to restore it over time if they can stabilize the area. Water is the first step to doing this. The enclave is in DC because it's a continuity of government initiative.

                There are enclave facilities in the game that advertise that they provide fresh water but they are filled with the dead bodies of wastelanders who didn't pass the genetic testing you're required to undergo when you show up. Presumably some people passed otherwise they'd have just started killing everyone. They wanted to do that but nation wide, its all in the game just not explained very well.

    Because the kind of person who enjoys Fallout 3, 4 and 76 aren't looking for an intellectually stimulating and/or emotionally engaging experience, they're looking for a game where they can turn off their brain, shoot some orcs and zombies and build some scrapyards while listening to doo-wop songs. Not saying there's anything wrong with enjoying or making that kind of game, but it does mean the experience of playing a Bethesda game blurs together. Not much is actually gonna stick out.

          Because they're not comparable in a fair way. You don't have to like either one, you're entitled to your opinion. But they're dramatically different games. Fallout 3 has WAY more going on than 4 does in terms of breadth and depth.

          >I liked the game
          >I found it memorable
          Why do either of these matter when the general populace don't?

          >the general populace
          You mean zoomers. People in my generation liked the game a lot when it released. It won GOTY
          The reason people bought and played nv is because they liked 3.

            I'll give you that 3 is a better roleplaying game and 4 is a better Borderlands clone, but they're both pretty braindead games at the end of the day.

      The sole reason is because of how well its written.
      Believe it or not, normies enjoy good story and RPG mechanics too, they'll happily play slop like fallout 4 but they'll take a game like New Vegas over it any day.

      Bethesda games have little to nothing to talk about, that's why every argument about which Fallout is better includes New Vegas.

      The few bethesdrones left try to downplay new vegas because otherwise it's impossible to say anything bethesda is better.

        OK but my gripe is solely that 3 and nv are both good games. I don't have some weird vendetta against everything bethesda has ever made so that's not a motive on my end. Those are both good games. 4 sucks because it noticeably is worse than both of these games. Bethesda today, sucks. They barely even try.
        Morrowind, oblivion, fo3, and skyrim were good games. None is without its problems, central of which is their tendency to force your hand somewhat and make you "the chosen one." But in these games, this was less of an issue.
        In 4, and every game since, it's much more of an issue, and the games quality went down in every other area as well.
        I am not dedicated to either promoting or tearing down bethesda. I am judging each game on its merits.

      Fallout 2's dark humor is still great, on par with Fallout 1. It's the pop culture references that are obnoxious. The game suffered by the lack of direction, ultimately ending with a horny nerds being given carte blanche to put anything in the game.
      2 still have some of the best stuff in classic Fallout like New Reno or Vault City. The locations (except from San Fran), when they don't throw pop culture shit at you, are far better than the ones in Fallout

    Bethesda has cringe corny writing they don't capture the essence of Fallout

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      It's not just the writing though even though it's pretty bad. It's the fact that Bethesda prioritizes quantity over quality in their games. I'm playing F4 now for the first time and I'm bored out of my mind. It's basically a MMO but single player. Except the funny part of that is the loot is not great. So you're just wondering around, checkmarking a location before moving to the next one. 40-50 hours in I'm using basically the same gear I got in my first 5-10 hours on very hard. Bethesda games are like the definition of fast food - good in a hurry but forgettable and not really healthy. I can sink a lot of time in those games, like the settlement system, but it's all so fricking bland. 3 was like that but even worse. Much worse.

      In contrast NV kept me entertained throughout the entire time and every location on the map had an interesting story and lore to grab my attention. The first 2 Fallout games, even though I think they are overrated, also kept me similarly entertained.

        They just prioritize the wrong quantity. New Vegas has a larger quantity of real quests and weapons. Every since Bethesda started using radiant quests their games have suffered and now they're using modular weapons that can be pistols or rifles limiting the weapon selection even more.

I'm really warming up to the idea that the Enclave is divided ideologically, with those who want to follow Richardson and Eden's final solution, and those that just want to reunite the US under the Enclave banner

    The writing is one thing sure but I don't think that really matters Skyrim had shite writing too. No, Bethesda was moronic and let Fallout 3 rot on GFWL.
    Bethesda games are always always -always- best played on PC but until recently you couldn't even launch 3 without jumping through a lot of hoops. Whenever someone asked about Fallout 3 everyone would say not to bother because it doesn't even work on modern machines, shit even without GFWL it still has problems with win 10.

    Because fallout 3 and fallout 4 are really boring, the exploration in those games is beyond tiring and repetitive without any interesting lore it makes you tired to play those two shitty games.

    Because Bethesda's writing has been boring as sin since Oblivion. Most of what people meme on about Skyrim is whacky emergent interactions from their jank systems, you hardly ever hear anyone talk about the dialogue or characters unless they're joking about voice lines that seem to pop up all the time.

    I still see liberty prime memes. There just wasn't as much memeable content in 3.

    >how does actual writing/design lead to more meme impact
    Just look at House, not even getting into his personality, you can see how the design of his presentation alone is enough for great meme potential. On the other hand I struggle to think of (or remember) any 'memetic' characters capable of leaving an impression from FO3/FO4 due to lack of notable designs or personalities.

    Anyone else feel like there's more Fallout threads and content now after the show's release? Not really a fan of the show, but if it means more people will potentially enjoy the franchise then that's good news. By the way, what are some other games like the first 2 games, especially in terms of writing?

      Depends on what you seek, if you just want a post-apocalyptic RPG then there's Underrail, Atom/Trudograd, Wasteland. But if you want specifically the style of game that Fallout 1 and 2 are then your options are Arcanum or slav mods.
      >especially in terms of writing?
      Arcanum and most of Wasteland.

        I wish we would get F1-2 threads instead.. oh well. How the frick is Bethesda still in business anyway? They literally can't make a good game to save their lives.

          there were few F1,F2 threads but they quickly died off since Fallout threads nowadays are only fueled by bait and marketer posts.
