Is it much better than F3? F3 is probably my most hated game ever, for a number of reasons, main being:
- Awful bad writing, same dialogues over and over (who are you? what are you doing here?
Awful bad writing? I'll agree that the voice acting and the level of emotional investment involved in any line spoken is pretty stiff for contemporary gaming, and the characters are hardly animated well for speaking. That's more of a consequence of the RPG/Adventure genre than anything else, where the character interaction is based on meeting and conversation, and also how Bethesda handles their character interactions. No character is as well structured in a conversation as say, Mass Effect, although keeping the protagonist quiet in the Fallout games is something I prefer.
- why should i care who are these wasteland scam and what they are doing?)
That's kind of the point of the game. You're presented with an open world with different factions and groups and you're free to interact with them however you wish, and for how long. For example, you can simply kill everyone if you that's the way you want to go.

You mean the wasteland? I actually really liked the post apocalyptic look to FO3. I usually tire of the whole gray/tan washout when movies do this kind of genre and a lot of games do it too, but in THIS game it works out really well. It's also not true in all cases for all environments you can visit, but for the most part you are wandering around in an area that was the victim of a nuclear holocaust. How is it supposed to look?
Anreel wrote:Bad animations or simply lack of them - unfortunately that goes with all Bethesda games. It was 2007 when F3 was released, Bethesda had been around for more than a decade i think and they still hadnt learned how to make animations.
Yeah none of that has really changed for New Vegas. I will say that characters are animated better for when they are wounded and when they take a strong hit, and the drunk characters are humorously done. But for the most part it's similar.

It's no secret that the main quest was the weakest part of the game, but luckily that only accounts for 10% of the game experience, as you can ignore the main storyline in lieu of the many other, more interesting side quests and general exploration.
Yeah, I've said this before. If you didn't like Fallout 3 you probably won't like New Vegas.
