is it? nv is objectively superior in regards to weapon system and skills. dlcs were more fleshed out (even if some of them were gay as shit) and added more interesting weapons than the two dlcs 3 had. i liked the swamp dlc for 3 but almost exclusively for the environment. speaking of environments 3's world was too big for the number of actually interesting locations it had, most places were pretty bland. nv had some of that going on too but the map was just the right size for the number of locations so it wasnt quite as noticeable. its been a long while since ive played 3 tho so im probably forgetting a lot of things.
i still enjoyed it but i remember liking nv a whole lot more
>99% of people will tell you that NV is the better game (and they're right) but I don't think 3 is the complete piece of shit most people on imageboards will tell you it is
This, NV is by far the best but the Bethesda games are still good fun. The only ones I would consider so bad they are not even worth playing are Mothership Zeta, Operation Anchorage, Nuka-World and 76.
>>5550>(even if some of them were gay as shit)
Seriously what's up with that? I love NV but basically all the DLCs besides maybe HH are complete shit
prolly a change up in the dev team after the main game was released and some proto-soyboys slipped in
also i was way wrong about there only being 2 dlcs for 3 i completely forgot about the pitt, broken steel, and mothership zeta
cant believe i forgot about the pitt i likd the auto axe a lot
Here's my Todd tier list:
>Literally no one has played these tier
Personally I'd put Oblivion into the low tier, add Skyrim to the mid tier, and make a new garbage tier with 76 in it.
I somehow forgot that Skyrim existed since I haven't played that shit since the release back in 2011 (fucking PS3 version too lol). Should really give it another playthrough sometime but can't be bothered with spending 6 gorillion hours installing mods and fixes
As for Oblivion it's kinda shitty but I have a soft spot for it because of the nostalgia and SOUL
There's not that much difference between Skyrim and Oblivion, it's just nostalgia goggles
iirc Sawyer handled the writing for the main game while Avellone was mostly responsible for the DLC so yeah that's pretty much what happened
isnt skyrim actually a considerable downgrade from oblivion mechanics-wise?
Oblivion's mechanics are pretty much unchanged from Morrowind so technically yeah. But it was also kind of fucked due to the addition of level scaling that turned every enemy into a huge damage sponge in the late game
>>5588>the addition of level scaling that turned every enemy into a huge damage sponge in the late game
oh yah the draugr in particular turned into a huge pain in the ass in skyrim
still some funny moments to be had tho i will always find it funny how i can meander around some field and then suddenly be set upon by a giant and be sent ragdolling into the stratosphere
>>5615>TES VI>this generation
got some bad news for you bro
Didn't even think about that lol. I guess it's not such a big deal since Xbox can just rotate Obisidian and Bethesda in and out so there's only a couple years between games. I wonder what they are going to do about Fallout though, no way Xbox leaves Fallout dormant for 10 years.
Also I didn't realize until now that FO4 is 7 years old holy fuck
ackchually its been 6 hasnt it?
but yah its been awhile
the boston salt party is the last time i remember really enjoying posting on a video game board that had more than 100 users
I forgot they bought InXile as well. If Bioware doesn't get it's shit together then Xbox is going to own the entire AAA WRPG market
Yeah you're right I forgot it was towards the end of 2015, still a long time for the series to be dead though
it really does suck ass
Outer worlds is one of the worse games I've ever played. The fact that it's getting a squeal is a crime.
At least it means that Xbox is giving it's studios some freedom, since literally no-one except for Obsidian developers was asking for Outer Worlds 2
Besides the plot stuff most of that applies to NV too though. Also Tim Cain didn't like Fallout 2 either but people still suck that game's dick
>>5688>people still suck that games dick
2 gets a lot of flak tho, a whole lot more than the first one at least
There is no debate.
NV is the real Fallout 3. Playing the originals really makes you appreciate it even more.
Also I disagree the only sub par DLC is Old World Blues. Too repetitive, too Rick and Morty, finding the lore for Elijah there is pretty cool though. Lonesome Road is also just kind of okay, I kind of hate the "Nuke your bad guy" ending but it feels like fitting endgame gauntlet.
Also Dead Money and Honest Hearts are just amazing. Dead Money with a couple of the enhanced survival mods and a few extra spooky shaders/retextures and its like Silent Hill meets Fallout.
Its a shame we will NEVER see another Obsidian Fallout and even if we did most of the team that made NV is gone hence even less people with connection to the original would be working on it so you would just get more "LE WACKY POWER ARMOR" Bethesda shit.
eh I didn't like Dead Money that much personally, to me it felt like they were trying to turn the game into a genre it isn't like Operation Anchorage in 3. Although I enjoy taking all the gold bars and imagining Avellone getting mad because I didn't learn his "muh letting go" lesson>LE WACKY POWER ARMOR
Honestly that's one thing I thought they did right in 4. In 1 and 2 getting power armor made you feel like an indestructible walking tank and they bought that back in 4, while in 3 and NV it's just pretty meh (I don't even bother using it in most playthroughs). The fusion cores and getting it in the first 10 minutes of gameplay were both pretty gay though.
>>5804>Its a shame we will NEVER see another Obsidian Fallout
There's always Nexus mods anon
Expansion mods are never good though, last time people got hyped for those we ended up with shit like New California and The Frontier
My only real major problem with Fallout 3 is that you can beat Operation Anchorage without leveling up a single time, and when you do you get glitched Power Armor that makes you virtually unkillable. It's "We Didn't Test Our Product: The DLC".>>5678>SPECIAL stats make no difference
The game is unplayable if you do not at least upgrade your weapon skills immediately. I found out the hard way that your bullets will do whatever they want with a low 'Guns' skill.
That's a problem with all Bethesda games really, Anchorage is probably the worst offender but there's others like Morrowind sending Brotherhood assassins loaded with OP gear to you at level 1. Easily fixed with a DLC delay mod anyway

that could be neat
i hope they lean back into some of the metaphysical stuff that morrowind established
also i saw this today
feels like one of those clickbait rumors that start off completely baseless and will be shot down in a few days after spreading everywhere
Even if it did happen New Vegas 2 would be boring imo. The Mojave has already been done so I don't see the point in continuing the story further
I'm guessing New Vegas 2 is just shorthand for another West coast game
Hopefully that's the case but I could see some suit from Microsoft looking at the NV hype online and thinking "huh guess they want the Strip and NCR vs. Legion again". If they were to rehire all the old staff we'd probably be alright though
>>5861>if they were to rehire all the old staff
i wonder if this has ever actually happened
They rehired a lot of the Rare OGs for Yooka Laylee and DKC Returns iirc. Also New Vegas itself is a good example since they hired some of the guys who made 1/2
monster boy had a lot of staff from the original wonder boy games
I'm playan TTW right now and actually enjoying it a lot. 3 holds up a lot better when you're essentially treating it as one huge NV DLC because you get the improved mechanics and being able to bring your Capital Wasteland gear into the Mojave and vice versa is fun. Also to me the roleplaying makes more sense. I like how your character is starting NV with some experience in the wasteland, since in vanilla NV despite it being implied that the Courier is an experienced grizzled badass you're still starting out as a noob gameplay-wise
Didn't that game suck?
It was pretty meh, there was a problem where it had huge open environments with fucking nothing to fill them out. But then I never really liked Banjo Kazooie or collectathons in general so people with a nostalgia boner for those games might've enjoyed it more
Yooka-Laylee is mediocre but the sequel is pretty good.
there was a fuckin sequel? i havent heard shit about that. last things i heard about it was that it was a massive letdown after all the hype and also that faggotry with them firing jontron and removing his voice grunts becaue he quoted fbi arrest statistics
if theres a sequel guess there was enough interest leftover tho
The sequel was made in the style of DKC rather than Banjo Kazooie, apparently it's gud but the lack of multiplayer was a deal breaker for me tbh
