I personally liked Fo3 better than NV but I think I'm in the minority.

I like that 3 has post-game content (with the expansions) where NV doesn't.

The other thing that's worth mentioning is that if you have a PC you're better off buying Skyrim for it instead because the mods that are available are outstanding. And there are so many of them it can easily add 10x the play value to the game.

If you own a PS3, then stay away from Fallout New Vegas at all costs. I heard from many sources that New Vegas crashed PS3 consoles all over the nation on the release day. Plus, if you have played Fallout 3, there is no need to play NV (it's just more of the same thing). With Skyrim, you receive a completely different experience than you had with Fallout 3 (NV might feel like playing the same game all over again).

Skyrim. It's better although I do love Fallout New Vegas.

I can confirm this, Fallout New Vegas with all DLC on PS3 became totally unplayable for me after a while(horrific slow down before inevitable lock ups and crashes) and Bethesda just didn't give a damn enough to get Obsidian to patch it.

Do not buy New Vegas on PS3. It's such a good game, but it becomes broken beyond belief, especially if you have the gall to play the DLC and side missions before you beat it. I was lucky enough to rebuy the game on Steam.

Buy Skyrim.
