Top 10 Ways Fallout New Vegas is Better Than Fallout 3These are the top ten reasons why Fallout New Vegas is better than Fallout 3. Some people prefer Fallout 3 over Fallout New Vegas but that's just your opinion. If you agree with me feel free to add another reason or vote on reasons already added.
Fallout New Vegas at the very least gives you 3 choices to pick in various quests and speech tree's meaning no one playthrough is ever the same. Fallout 3 only really had 2 choices that were often either "be the good guy" or "be the bad guy".
Wait! So many endings where Fallout 3 had almost none.
Fallout 3 saw in black and white, Fallout new Vegas saw all different shades of grey
Agreed with everything of the list, but Factions it's the biggest reason for me. I love to being chased to death by the Caesar's Legion and I also love always doing the dirty job for the Powder Gangers and the Boomers 34
The faction system in New Vegas is really interesting and means if you make one bad decision with one faction only your reputation with that faction would be affected meaning being bad to one faction doesn't mean you're considered an ass throughout all the wasteland.
Fallout New Vegas:
Has their ups and downs, and it's up to you to choose what's really best...
Choices aren't all bad or all good and only affect certain parts of the wasteland and factions so you can choose to be more than a heavenly saint or son of satan.
The companion system in New Vegas was much more advanced and gave you more options than just trading or telling a companion to follow you or go away. This meant you could become closer with your companions and control their attack style more closely.
I felt the quests in New Vegas were more varied and had more interesting stories behind them. As well as that like I said earlier the choices had more of an impact.
For the veteran players it adds much more challenge and realism that make it almost an entirely different game in terms of strategy.
The DLC in New Vegas is more than just a bigger level cap and new location. They had an awesome story like Old World Blues, tried new idea's like Dead Money and added more to the original story and a finality like Lonesome Road.
The Ending in Fallout 3 only really changed depending on your final decision while Fallout New Vegas can have dozens of different endings depending on your choices throughout the game.
Especially if you chose the Wild Wasteland perk.
Gave New Vegas some character.
Way more unique guns!
Instead of just being the Followers in power armor like in Fallout 3.
Very few lore-butchering retcons, and no things put back in just for brand recognition.
The NCR went from a diplomatic country to being symbolic of American imperialism.
