New vegas is honestly one of my favorite games of all time now. Vault 11 is was great, but Boones sidequest was one of the best and most emotional parts of any game I have ever played. Actually makes me cry, and I don't cry easy

Only problem with New Vegas was that I had to download three separate community-made fixes for the game to lose it's stuttering issues and run well. Oh wait, that wasn't the only problem, there was also freezing, crashing, and glitches occuring, both when I played it on the PC and on my friend's Xbox 360.

Other than that, it was actually a great game. I just don't get why they used that same old crappy engine.

New Vegas is a great game! I have pumped over 62 hours into it so far and I havn't finished it yet! There is so much to do and explore. Its only shortcoming is that is isn't as good as Fallout 3. While I almost disagree with myself on that point, its hard to look past some of the technical flaws that continue to plague New Vegas. I havn't run into these invisible walls that Nimrod is referring to, but I have a couple of quest logs still incomplete because of bugs in the game. 

I will agree with Nimrod that New Vegas may be the worst game in the Fallout series. *WAIT FOR IT* That's only because all of the other Fallout games were so amazing (except maybe Tactics)! This Fallout only falls slightly short of its predicessors. Does that make it a terrible game, Hell No! I completely agree that this game deserves a game of the year nod. There arent many games that can pull you into its world like the Fallout: New Vegas did.

If you didn't like the game that is your right to have, but flaming is uncool.

I liked it. It wasn't as good as Fallout 3 though.

This is like the 5th articles youve written about this game. This game SUCKS ASS. It is without a doubt THE WORST fallout game ever.

The game is EMPTY save for the invisible walls its filled with. It plays like a cheap amature player mod. How much are they paying you guys to write this crap? This is worse than Fallout Tactics.

Anyone notice how many comments Nathan gets for a short article like this one with respect to the other articles on Maximum PC? Just one of his articles pulls in more comments than all the rest on MPC combined. These are not flighty little insights to the games that we all love? Shows that gaming is good to go. For now and for the future. Gotta agree with Nathan, although I think that Fallout 3 gave many more hours of cruising the post apocalyptic world than 3NV did. A little too refined for me rather than the WTF! in your face zombies brandishing their rotting limbs to rip you apart. Snipers? I don't think so. No flaming here, just sayin....

Look children, it's an internet troll! These all-too-common and astoundingly stupid creatures are common on internet blogs, seeking to create anger and rage wherever they go. Although trolls were once confined to hiding under bridges and rocks, human encroachment on their habitat has led many to instead find shelter on message boards such as this one. Common tactics of theirs include random capitalization of words, accusations that those who disagree have been bought off, and silly usernames. To defend yourself against an internet troll, point and laugh uproariously at the troll and its ridiculous claims.

Remember, stupid statements are only made by trolls or people too biased to hold a rational dialogue, so you need not fear you may lose out on an interesting discussion.

I think a troll is more along the lines of some one who wrights an entire god damn essay that has nothing to do with the article their responding to.

"some one who wrights"

As cool as airplanes are, I did not in fact invent them, so I'm afraid your statement does not apply in this situation. Thanks for playing! You've been a real pantload.

Sigh, more idiots who base arguments off spelling and grammar.  People like you should jump off a cliff, face down.

You seem to have mistaken derision for a troll's pathetic attempt at, well, trolling for trying to refute his argument. He doesn't have an argument, there's nothing to refute. His argument is "New Vegas sucks and you suck for liking it and writing about". That's mere idiocy, not debate. That you would come to the defense of such a statement speaks volumes about your status as a sock puppet for Nimrod however.

Yeah, you're right Maktaka, I fed the troll.... Oops.

I think your account name is affecting your brain. The only way it could have been better was if it was the second Fallout remastered and remade with the new engine.
