    I love how my buddy described helping the Brotherhood in F4

    He'd spent every last playthrough in previous Fallouts hunting and killing the Brotherhood from a Robin Hood style angle, so when it came time to work with them in F4 he was pissed

    he was like
    step 1: pretend to do Liberty Prime stuff
    step 2: kill a random non-essential staffer in their sleep
    step 3: buy up all the Vertibird Grenades
    4: fly away until you need Vertibird Grenades, repeat step 1

    The DLC adds a ton of content. I like FO4 but I seem to be something of a minority. Nuka World is huge but Far Harbor was better.

    FO3 was/is great but there is a serious flaw in character development once you realize that intelligence gives you skill points.

    NV is great from what I can tell. I've spent many hours playing NV but was never able to finish because of game breaking bugs. I legit have had every playthrough ruined by game breaking bugs. I won't even start another playthrough because I know it will end in disappointment.

    FO4 well, I hated it at first. Then I modded the fuck out of it and now its a fucking blast to play. Exploration and gameplay are extremely satisfying and the world looks amazing.

    NV gets my vote. I think that I no shit played that game for nearly a year before moving on. I tried all of the different endings, loved the gambling, etc.

    Boone’s story alone as a companion was awesome.

    how dare you sir I'll have you know the ending of Nuka World tickled my every fancy

    Far Harbors ending was like my third marriage; erotic, innovative and smelling of mothballs

    I finally started playing this game. I so far like the changes for the most part. Played a lot of FO3, but barely any New Vegas. The graphics in New Vegas were really an eyesore...

    I've had multiple playthroughs on PS3 for NV and never had anything more than some freezes and a slowdown, and that's supposed to be the worst version of the game.

    Have to say I was really disappointed back when I first got it, because it just wasn't what I expected. Started a new game a few days ago, and it's pretty good. I'm really enjoying it now that I came back to it with no expectations.

    You can end Far Harbor a few ways. I always nuke the children of atom.

    Oh right, I thought you meant Far Harbor.

    I enjoyed FO4 it wasn't as bad as some people claim it to be, but New Vegas shits all over it. Especially when you include DLCs, then it becomes a massacre.

    Strange I was literally clicking on this thread when you quoted me. Gotta sign up on the nexus website so you can download mods and download the nexus mod manager and LOOT cause it will make it much easier. I started with this guy's mod list for the visual overhaul.

    I didn't use the entire list though. I know I scrapped the last mod (reloaded). I choose the summer version of Seasons. After making sure it was stable I added stuff like CBB, a couple weapons and Start Me Up and whatever else felt right. It is very fun to play for me right now.

    I tried Tactics before playing the two original games and couldn't get into it. Maybe I could give it another shot, I dont know if it gets good.

    I really liked tactics as a standalone tactical squad game a la xcom. As a fallout-style RPG it's garbage.
