Welcome to Vegas. New Vegas.
It’s the kind of town where you dig your own grave prior to being shot in the head and left for dead…and that’s before things really get ugly. It’s a town of dreamers and desperados being torn apart by warring factions vying for complete control of this desert oasis. It’s a place where the right kind of person with the right kind of weaponry can really make a name for themselves, and make more than an enemy or two along the way.
As you battle your way across the heat-blasted Mojave Wasteland, the colossal Hoover Dam, and the neon drenched Vegas Strip, you’ll be introduced to a colorful cast of characters, power-hungry factions, special weapons, mutated creatures and much more. Choose sides in the upcoming war or declare “winner takes all” and crown yourself the King of New Vegas in this follow-up to the 2008 videogame of the year, Fallout 3.
Enjoy your stay.
Feel the Heat in New Vegas! Not even nuclear fallout could slow the hustle of Sin City.
Explore the vast expanses of the desert wastelands – from the small towns dotting the Mojave Wasteland to the bright lights of the New Vegas strip. See the Great Southwest as could only be imagined in Fallout.
Feuding Factions, Colorful Characters and a Host of Hostiles! A war is brewing between rival factions with consequences that will change the lives of all the inhabitants of New Vegas. The choices you make will bring you into contact with countless characters, creatures, allies, and foes, and determine the final explosive outcome of this epic power struggle.
New Systems! Enjoy new additions to Fallout: New Vegas such as a Companion Wheel that streamlines directing your companions, a Reputation System that tracks the consequences of your actions, and the aptly titled Hardcore Mode to separate the meek from the mighty. Special melee combat moves have been added to bring new meaning to the phrase “up close and personal”. Use V.A.T.S. to pause time in combat, target specific enemy body parts and queue up attacks, or get right to the action using the finely-tuned real-time combat mechanics.
An Arsenal of Shiny New Guns! With double the amount of weapons found in Fallout 3, you’ll have more than enough new and exciting ways to deal with the threats of the wasteland and the locals. In addition, Vault-Tec engineers have devised a new weapons configuration system that lets you tinker with your toys and see the modifications you make in real time.
Let it Ride! In a huge, open world with unlimited options you can see the sights, choose sides, or go it alone. Peacemaker or Hard Case, House Rules, or the Wild Card - it’s all in how you play the game.

Obsidian greatly improved on Fallout 3 with their release of Fallout New Vegas. They gave the game much better factions, a story that made more sense and allowed for more player choice, got you off to a fast start, Obsidian has much more talented writers leading to better dialogue, better quests, and better companions that you could interact with more, they added weapon modifications that improved the combat, and different factions will like you more or less based on your action or possibly based on what outfit you are wearing. For fans of the original Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics Obsidian also continues the Fallout lore in a way that makes sense with how factions work and how some of the mutants act, it also gives a much more fitting and interesting world to explore rather than just a wasteland with bombed out buildings. The game released with a lot of bugs and glitches but that's been taken care of and we are left with a far better setting and role playing game than the previous game gave us.
Fallout New Vegas is better than Fallout 3 in every way, besides the setting. New Vegas also happens to be incredibly buggy and unpolished, which can make the experience somewhat frustrating at times. If you can get past the bland and limited environment of the Mojave Wasteland, you are in for a treat. The story is better. The side quests are better. Gear progression is better. This game truly improves on everything Fallout 3 did. Not to mention, Obsidian (ex-Black Isle devs) made this game. I would recommend this game over Fallout 3 to anyone interested. That being said, you may as well just play Fallout 4 now.
This Obsidian-developed game adheres strongly to perhaps the central tenet of an RPG, player choice. In many quests you have the ability to change your mind, make and break allegiances, use non-violent means and multiple routes to achieve your desired ends, and make dialog option skill-checks based on how you set up your character's stats. For those reasons above all, I found New Vegas to be one of the more fulfilling RPGs that I've played, since my play-through felt unique to me. I could choose meaningfully distinct options based on my particular motivations and feelings regarding the story, characters, and factions. No player character voice-acting, minimal personal back-story, and full-text dialog options (unlike Fallout 4) provide a large ability to role-play a particular style of character. The environment can be sparse, and the graphics, animations, and aiming have not aged well nor were stellar at the time. Those who are strongly turned off by games that don't have a slick modern polish to their graphics or gameplay may find the game tougher to enjoy. However, the oddball humour, unique old-school country-western style soundtrack, and very strong quest lines and player choice make this a game that is easy to recommend for fans of Fallout and RPGs in general.
I've put over 200 hours into this game and it is still great fun. I loved fallout 3, it was a near perfect game, then when new vegas came out I was amazed to see that it was actually improved upon. The story is good, there are a ridiculous amount of guns that just feel great to shoot, hardcore mode, AMAZING DLC, each one is a great adventure on it's own. Great perks, a solid leveling system, soooo many amazing quest lines. I just wish that fallout 4 had quests and story as good as this game. Multiple endings, great faction balancing with actual repercussions for your in game actions. Just an overall amazing game, get it now if you don't have it you won't be disappointed.
Like the title suggests, this is one of the best games ever to be created. From its exciting main quest, interesting side quests, good dialogue, fun gameplay, and how you can be whoever you want and do whatever you want, this game is a masterpiece and can be put hundreds of hours into. This is a must-have, and IMO it's better than Fallout 4.
