Fallout New Vegas is the most overrated game I've ever played

#1jamieyello3Posted 8/3/2014 5:40:01 PM
Kind of surprised when I saw the perfect 10/10 reviews on this site. The game sucks. I'm probably playing it wrong but as far as I can tell it's walk around a giant desert in a random direction in your broken 3rd person walking animation until something kills you. I've played skyrim too, it's no where near as good.

If you don't like the game mechanics, that's one thing... I've always liked New Vegas for the story.

As for your "3rd person walking animation"... I've never played it in 3rd person so maybe that's where you're going wrong. Try moving the mouse wheel until you're back to a first person perspective.... Of course that won't help with the walking through the desert bit since most of the game takes place in the mojave desert.

It also might help if you followed directions and headed east along the road. I'm sure a lot of people start heading north, ignore the warning signs and then wonder why they get roflstomped by deathclaws.

Comparing New Vegas to Skyrim is a little silly, as while they are both RPGs, they play very differently.

New Vegas is a great game, though, in my opinion. Fallout 3 is great, too.

You're bad at telling things.

Although my "new user" alarm is ringing so I dunno if this is just some bored troll or something.

In the case that you're actually not a troll, then stop playing it in third person, stop wandering in random directions if you're getting killed, and try talking to people in towns so you can actually get quests and level up and get some decent equipment.

If you're playing vanilla FONV, then stop and install some mods.
Nearly all Bethesda games are crap without mods.

New Vegas is more of an RPG than Skyrim. Skyrim is more like an action game with light RPG elements
