Poll: Fallout: Las Vegas is boring beyond belief

Funny how that came really (Abstractlly) close to forming a messed up bell-curve.

I fucking love this game. It crashes less than Fallout 3 and Oblivion , I love how they approached the main quest, the characters are colorful (there's a super mutant with a wig running a radio station for fuck's sake!) and I really love the exploration. Add to this that there are mods coming out every day and you have a must buy in my book.

I hope it won't take long to release the DLCs on pc as well...

a great game in my opinion
i actually like all the down time and the slow pace
though my first save file was rendered unplayable because the door to new vegas was locked without a key and that is where all of my quests at the time ended

but the game should get better as the patches roll in

Hardcore_gamer:
I bought Fallout: Las Vegas after hearing all of the praise about the game. And after having invested a considerable chunk of the day into the game it has almost put me to sleep.

Don't get me wrong, I knew in advance what kind of game this was and I was never expecting any kind of a fast paced shooter or anything, but the game is just bloody boring. There are a number of reasons for this, for starters the story feels dull and it never really held my attention not counting the first few min during the opening cutscenes. Another reason is that the characters feel and look very bland, dull and uninteresting thanks to the stiff and lifeless character models, the highly mediocre graphics and the sub-par voice acting.

And speaking of graphics, the game looks pretty ugly. The actual game world is empty, bland and lifeless (and don't give me the "but the game takes place after a nuclear war and that makes it ok" excuse. The plot/setting doesn't justify throwing the player into a series of dull uninteresting environments) which means that there is no real satisfaction to be had in exploring the game world. If anything it just becomes a chore having to wander through it. The interfaces are also confusing and annoying, that arm-computer thing you carry feels overly complex, its not that I can't understand it, its just so tedious to use.

Another thing that I just can't stand is the slow pace of the game. Yes I know this is a RPG first and a shooter second, but that doesn't mean I should be spending most of my time just walking around from A to B while doing nothing exiting at all. I have started to wander how long the promised "50+ or so hours of gameplay" I heard about would actually last if the game removed all of the annoying "walking around and figuring out where to go" parts and just left the actual interesting gameplay parts.

And wtf is up with guns being so inaccurate if you fire them yourself? I know you are suppose to level up to become better with the guns and stuff but it just feels so outrageous when you line up a perfect headshot and yet mess anyways simply because of how guns/stats work in the game.

Also, bugs.

Don't get me wrong, if you love the game then Kudos to you, but I for one regret buying the game.

Anyways, I will probably sell the game back to the store and hopefully get some of my money back.

What are your thoughts on Fallout: Las Vegas?

I completely disagree with your statement and the only things I feel like like saying right now would be swears and trolling you but I will not, I will limit my self to this, your opinion is stupid and you basically contradicted yourself by saying you knew what it was going to be when you bought it but you obviously didnt because if you had played Fallout 3 you would have known it would be like this since it is so similar to Fallout 3

Walking around aimlessly and exploring is the best part of the game, that's where the coolest shit happens.

You must have had something else in mind when you chose this game, I guess.

MichiganMuscle77:

Yeah, this is a problem a lot of people seem to have with the last two Fallout titles. Exploration is one of the key components and some people seem to need a game to hold their hand and guide them the entire way through. I'm playing Fallout 3 again before I pick up New Vegas, and there are hours upon hours of rich exploration to behold. All you need is a free spirit.

I liked F3: Bethesdas post nuke.
Fallout New Vegas however, is just as awesome for different reasons.
It's a well done continuation of the original Fallout and Fallout 2 style of game play put into 3d. I really enjoy it because I approach it as though it were simply fallout 1 and 2 with a first person perspective. I don't approach it as though it were Borderlands sans-Mad-Max style.

If you want a fast paced desert fps; play Borderlands or Bethesdas Post Nuke Game imho. ^_^ enjoy F3 New Vegas as what it is, a first person version of F1 and F2!

to those who are going to mention it. WE DO NOT SPEAK OF FALLOUT TACTICS HERE. <_< T_T >_>

Only real gripe I have with New Vegas is that the music is not nearly as good as Fallout 3. Other than that, game is awesome.

Edit: I should add that I also wish Mr. New Vegas would talk about me more. Three Dog was obsessed with my exploits, get with the program Wayne!

Captain Karma:

Wow, I actually much prefer the music in New Vegas to F3.

It's nice having all the old Fallout 1 and 2 music, makes me feel nostalgic, and I love the more melodic and less abstract feel of Inon Zur's themes.

Sounds like you need some generic beat-em up linear button masher.
Your points are completely invalid.

I prefer New Vegas over Fallout 3. I got so bored playing Fallout 3 that I stopped playing it. I can't seem to put New Vegas down.

And seriously? The setting doesn't justify it? Wow, dude. You've really got a few screw loose in that narrow minded head of yours.

How is he a troll? He picked up the game because all anyone ever says about it is praise and how great it is. Yes its the type of game he's not fond of, but who knows, this one could have been different. So he bought it to find out.

And example for me would be that I really don't like sports games, yet I tried Fight Night Round 3 on a whim and ended up liking it. Point is you just never know.

He didn't like it, and he's sharing his experience with it. That doesn't make him a troll, and his opinion isn't "stupid".

I hated the game when I played through the first 6-8 hours, then discovered a certain "Top 25 mods by PC gamer" and another "Top 5 from Kitsen". Now both the game and my enjoyment of the game changed drastically. For some reason, I rerolled as a pink bearded psychopath that should technically be a member of the Fiend yet is forced by the game to do brainy stuff like fix power plants, but I get to do some fun stuff like impale puny wastelands like those NCR jerks with my bumper sword! I should note that after murdering the Fiend's leader, I am currently applying to take over his position, I think there are a few other applicants, I should do something about that.

Also, Ave Caesar! [attack]

I'll just say that I'm loving it, and that all the problems I have with it are problems that I had with Fallout 3. I wouldn't hesitate for one second in saying that I'm enjoying Fallout NV a lot more than I did Fallout 3. Which I thought was a good continuation of the series, mind you.

I agree that it feels a bit like an expansion, but in a good way. The difference between Fallout 3 and Fallout NV is basically the same as the diffrence between Fallout 1 and 2; It uses the previous game to make a game that's something between an expansion, a remake and a sequel. Which is awsome.

Bugs are a pain in the ass, though, but Fallout 3 crashes on a regular basis for me so I wasn't really expecting anything.

DarkhoIlow:
Can't really say it's a sequel,since it doesn't continue the story from Fallout 3 afaik,perhaps I am mistaken and will learn that further as the game progresses.

Heh, a lot of us said the same thing about Fallout 3 not really continuing the story of Fallout 1 and 2, though. As a matter of fact, as far as I can tell Fallout: NV continiues the stories from Fallout 1 and 2 to a greater extent than Fallout 3. The NCR is the most obvious example.

Besides, the story of Fallout 3 was a blatant copy-paste from Fallout 2 anyway. I mean, seriously;

My only hangup for this game is in hardcore mode you have to spend MUCH more time managing your character and your carry weight. Basically after every zone i have to go back to my safehouse and spend 4 or 5 minutes dumping all my extra gear into containers and restocking my ammo. Luckily this is eased a bit by my followers helping carry the load but i want to punch the Ad Wizard that came up with the idea of not letting followers carry faction armor....

Hardcore_gamer:

And wtf is up with guns being so inaccurate if you fire them yourself? I know you are suppose to level up to become better with the guns and stuff but it just feels so outrageous when you line up a perfect headshot and yet mess anyways simply because of how guns/stats work in the game.

Many guns in the game require a base guns skill to be accurate for example the 9mm pistol requires 0 gun skill and will put bullets where you tell it as long as you arent going nuts on the trigger, but the sniper rifle requires 75 guns skill for you to use the weapon unhindered (movement, reload, scope sway) and until you hit the 75 skill you will see diminished performance.

My suggestion for sniping if that is your thing and you have a low guns skill is try using the Varmint rifle fully modded out, you can get a scope, silencer, and extended mag which can help fill your sniping needs without maxing our your guns skill.

I can't disagree with you more. Obviously this kind of game isn't for you. I like the graphics, especially standing atop a tall hill and watching the landscape. I like the combat, where you can't expect to be an UBER L33T SNIPAR on level 2, but where you will actually feel like you've acomplished something when you maximize your skill and finally master your rifle. I like the difficulty, where you can't expect to survive any encounter you have in the wasteland, and actually have to be careful in the beginning of the game unless you get eaten by scorpions. I like the characters in the game, the various quest lines, the multitude of factions and the intricacy with which the game crafts their relationships. I like that there's no "good guys", only varying degrees of gray. I don't find it boring. I find it in almost all aspects one of the best games I have ever played. Now, I don't call myself a "hardcore gamer", but I've seen my fair share of games. F:NV is a huge accomplishment, both for Obsidian and for the western RPG scene in general.

Uber Evil:
I kind of agree with you. I've gotten to New Vegas and am bored and angry at it. The long stretches of wandering when I can't kill many of the creatures becomes tedious. The decisions in the games aren't as black and white, like when you

But in New Vegas my circumstances left 3 out of the 4 or 2 out of the 3 casino cashiers dead, So I have to play at the Gamorrah. Both the Tops and Ultra-Luxe are better. I also can't fin any ammo or weapons, so I am being F'ed in the A by most enemies.

Edit: I do like the game, although it is kind of a tough love sort of game, and can get aggravating at times. Can't wait for MMM and Level Cap & Skill Cap workarounds, and maybe UPP. And Something to let you play after the end. When those come around I can say that I'll love the game to death. It did that to FO3.

You're not supposed to know who the good guy is. It provides moral ambiguity. NCR want to restore democracy and bring the Wasteland back to the Pre-War Era, but they tax people which is ludicrous because no one has any significant amount of money. Caesar's Legion want to "cleanse" the Wasteland, but try and tempt you over to their side by

Mr. House provides people with a safe haven in New Vegas and almost completely rebuilt the place himself. However, he's an unknown quantity. The Boomers want to

[spoilers]bomb the fuck out of everything because they want to "cleanse" the Wastes like the Legion.[/spoiler]

I find it better than FO3's "BoS are the good guys, Enclave are bad".

You've summed up my thoughts.

I've found plenty of interesting things exploring the wastelands, perhaps you didn't look carefully enough. And inaccurate guns when you manual fire? In Fallout 3 I used VATS all the time. I'm using manual fire more in New Vegas because I'm finding it easy to snipe fools from far away. Maybe you don't know how to use iron sights and haven't gotten scoped weapons?

The graphics have a very wide range, from very very low, to pretty damn high if you max EVERYTHING. You can also further increase some of the settings by INI editing. I'm about 50 hours in and I haven't finished the main quest line since I've been doing lots of exploring and side quests.

I foud guns were inacurate, until I added a scope, that seems to work nicely :D, also anyone know where to get a damn gatling laser

Check the wiki, dude.

Okay, I got about two hours before leaving from my office. It's Friday and I got bored at work so am writing this.

First of all, FO:NV is a bazillion times worse than FO3. FO:NV just copied and pasted FO3, but lacked every bit of charm that FO3 used to have. I didn't play FO3 for its grafix (though it was good in 2008 standard), but played for its immersive story, character development, enviromental changes, etc.

Do I remember any memorable characters in FO3? YES of course, there are bunch. The over-cheerful Moira (i loved her character and the superb voice acting), the chem addict brother and her pretty sister from salon in Megaton, the cowboy/mayor - the first character you encounter in Megaton after leaving Vault 101, the atom preacher, etc. Now I have only mentioned characters in Megaton so far. All the voice acting in any other towns - Rivet City, Tennpenny Tower, BoS, they all superb and very lively. They had their own CHARACTERS.

FO:NV, man the voice acting was like some amatueres picked up on the street and was forced to read whatever written on the script. that's exactly it. there was no character, no soul, no effort. it's just BLAND.

FO:NV's environment is just so static and it never changes even your mission progress. In FO 3, you start mission with Enclave, you start to see the changes happening in the Capital Wasteland. Random Enclave solders appears with their experimental Death Claws, sometimes fight with BoS, etc. In FO:NV, it is till fucking boring Mojave Wasteland whatever you do. And where is Super mutant Behemoth? The randomness of the game, and the unexpected event was what makes FO3 greatest game of all time. Also Three Dog talked about YOU in his radio station as you progress in the game. This is the first time ever in the GAME history, the AI literally talks about YOU (the player) in the game. So you feel more engaged and you feel like living in this aritficially created world.

This annoying Vegas man in the radio like your 70 yrs old gran pa is so boring and depressing. Also the doctor in Good Spring, he never cheer u up. does he have manic depression? Man, I loved FO 3 so much, that I vote for my best game ever, as high was my expectation was, FO:NV just has crashed and ruined what was one of my best game.

The first thing I have to ask... did you know that was this thing called Fast Travel...? How exactly is the Pipboy 3000 hard to use? And the NPC's move, you can't make them stand still to line up your headshot, unless it's a Cazador those mother fuckers can't be hit willy nilly because they are way too fucking fast... one thing that I found to make hte game more interesting is to listen to what some of the characters have to say learn the back story behind the content, also look for those little things, references to other Fallout games, references to movies, just the little things hell if you really feel like it get rid of the story of being a courier and as you go along just make up your own story it's actually quite fun. =)

I could tell you everything that is wrong with your argument. But I won't.

I disagree with you.

Don't diss Wayne Newton (Mr. New Vegas) =o

Also Mr. New Vegas does talk about the Courier quite a bit actually, like how you were shot in the head but made a complete recovery, after you complete the quest I Forgot to Remember to Forget, he will talk about how two armed civilians showed up at Bitter Springs and fought off the Legion, the two armed men? You and Boone.

I will admit there is one thing I miss from Fallout 3 and that is the huge buildings that were almost a huge maze, with the buildings in FNV they are pretty linear also the funny moments you could find set up by Bethesda like the giant teddy bear at the Red Racer Factory or the Teddy bear and garden gnome who was smoking a lit cigarette playing checkers with tiny milk bottles and something else I can't remember.

I have to say that everything that you stated is right but i still enjoy the game

Why are people still posting in this silly topic?

He is calling the game fallout las vegas surely that is pretty much grounds for being a troll. He just wanted to cause a huge rift of opinions of the game in these forums as humanly possible and by the looks of it he has succeeded in that.

He's had his five minutes of fame and now lets go back to posting in decent topics people.

It's much easier than Fallout 3, but the ultra-hardcore mode I designed makes it fair enough. It's definitely a fun game for Fallout fans, whether they were introduced to the series by Fallout 1, 2, or 3.

Unfortunately, the bugs are bad enough that I won't play New Vegas until the next patch comes out for 360.

When I got to New Vegas, I was disappointed. I was expecting a bustling city with taboo written all over it. Instead I got a boring one even at nighttime that's barely populated and only has 3 sections with a few big buildings.

Absolute disaster of a 'game'. This and Dragon Age: Origins are the only role-playing games where my gaming OCD couldn't keep me playing. Heck I explored every nook and cranny in Baldur's Gate I & II and this game couldn't keep me interested long enough to finish the main quest!

Classic example of a bloated sandbox type game with NOTHING to do. Every quest is a boring fetch quest with no interesting outcomes and every 'area' to explore has nothing but empty bottles and ammo.

The characters are immensely dull. Even your companions are the most boring of any RPG ever.

Why is it when the game is named after the city New Vegas it is the most uninspiring area in the entire game? heck a side-stepping dungeon in Fallout 3 had more depth and life to it.

Great guns to be had but nothing to use them on, I just found myself going on killing sprees in New Vegas before reloading to save my reputation.

Gave it 3 days and couldn't keep going. Uninstalled.

Started playing this (PS3 version) after the first patch was released, thinking "ok, they fixed a lot of stuff, obviously it's still gonna have some problems but I suppose it's now somewhat playable". And it was, for the first 40 hours. Sadly, the performance gets worse and worse the more you play, and last night the game was constantly running at <10 fps and freezing every 2 or 3 rezones. Not gonna bother with it anymore even though I think I am nearing the end. Such a gigantic waste of my time.

NeedAUserName:
Well, clearly you've been playing the wrong game. Fallout:New Vegas is awesome. I spent most of my time today playing it (only got released today in the UK).

No it didn't its been out for ages in the uk, My friend has had it for weeks now.

Yes, I'm aware of that, but when I made that post, over a month ago it was true.

Ok, my personal opinion i picked, its good.
I played Oblivion heard it was kinda the same but a shooter so i tought omg this must be awsome !!! Got into the game about 1 or 2 houres, NCR, Legion, .. its indeed kinda Dull like someone els said, but when you think about it .. and you would travel in real life, wouldn't it be dull aswel ? its a RPG and it succeeded i still havent got to play it out. alot of times i just screw up, because its so hard even on easy when i try to take down whole camps on my own ^^. the storyline is a bit dull aswel probably marvelous since i still didnt play it out. but its hard to choose. next time i'm going like a grey warden fully Neutral .. not gonna try to fight alot. thats the thing what makes this game what it is, u can choose what you want to be and thats awsome.. but the story doesn't always comply to your decisions and that makes me sad :(.

But i can't wait till skyrim is here !! :D i'm still wondering why i didn't dislike the traveling in oblivion elder scrolls .. it just seemed less boring
