Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.
I just shoot them in the face repeatedly. If I have a Winchester, and they have a face, I'll win.

The developers have said that you'll find weapons of both categories early on (compaired to previous fallout games where you only got energy weapons towards the end) and you'll get better ones as you progress. So it's more of a matter of personal taste. There will be some energy weapons that don't need ammo at the expense of a lower fire rate so you may want to chose them if you play hardcore mode where ammo has weight.

I wouldn't go energy weapons on consoles. It just doesn't feel satisfying. But on PC if you get the EWE mod it makes energy worth it.

I always start with good ol' ballistic weapons. Then on subsequent playthroughs I experiment with other weapon types.
