I personally enjoyed Fallout: New Vegas so much more than Fallout 3. This is not to say that I did not adore either game. To this day, Fallout 3's dialogue and events trump most any game I've ever played. I just prefer generally the atmosphere, the gameplay, and the story of F:NV. I think the open-endedness of The Courier is what draws me in so much where I have complete freedom to make my back-story anything I want; Just my thoughts, any others feel the same way?
