OUCH!

Nah, I love those games, really I do, but I have a hard time seeing how they are better than Skyrim now that it's been a while. I don't know, they're still great, but Skyrim does so many things better--gameplay wise--it can be hard to go back.

What do you guys think, now that Skyrim has been around for a bit?

I still play F:NV like it's crack and enjoy the hell out of it.
Do what makes you happy. Because at the end, who's there? You.

I still prefer NV more.

The only thing I miss from Skyrim when playing NV is the sprint button, but since I got it for the PC, that was easily replicated by a mod (Project Nevada).

New Vegas is still utterly awesome. Better plot, actual meaningful choices regarding the plot, more interesting characters, and masterfully weaved DLC with significant tie-ins to each other and the main game. And one thing I sorely miss in Skyrim is time pausing when you're in a conversation. I HATE these real-time chats! Especially since you are frozen during them while no one else (including any nearby enemies) is.
Why do people... betray one another? They might as well... all just die instead.

I can still play them fine.

I do miss sprint though. Oddly enough I don't miss it in Oblivion though with 100 Speed and some enchants to bring it over 100 it's faster than sprinting anyways.
Currently Playing: Skyrim, Fallout New Vegas, Fallout 3, NFS:MW 2012
Currently waiting for: GTAV, LR:FFXIII, Grid 2

I still prefer Skyrim, but New Vegas and Fallout 3 don't feel dated by any stretch of the imagination to me. Well, okay, that's a lie, some of the animations are laughably bad, but the games are still fun. Even Oblivion doesn't feel that dated, although admittedly I use mods to overhaul the level scaling and the leveling system.

I like both...they're in different genres as far as setting goes, so I don't find myself not liking Fallout after playing Skyrim...all dem guns man...so many ammo types...and the Fallout games have better DLC overall when compared to Skyrim.
I used to be a Street Fighter like you...then I took a Spiral Arrow to the knee.

Man, I LOVE NV, so don't get me wrong, but I have such a hard time seeing why folks put it over every other Beth game this gen. I understand that people like choices with consequences, but I feel like that was all NV had to offer. Everything else (graphics/gameplay/clip rate) is blatantly lower quality. It's simply less detailed and not as smooth, in my humble opinion.

I respect other people's opinions though, so I'm fine with people putting NV at the top of their respective lists, I just have a hard time understanding it (<no, that's not an invitation to "explain it to me" <_<). New Vegas is an absolutely amazing game so, though it's some what baffling, it's not surprising. I love it too. Just not above FO3/Skyrim.
