Let me start by saying that Fallout 3 is my all time favorite video game for several reasons including storyline, freedom, and concept.
So you better believe I was hyped the night before Fallout: New Vegas was to be released.
I've been playing this game for about a month now, and holy shit I've had a blast! Fallout: New Vegas contains improved combat features, a bigger map than Fallout 3, a whole new story, a fun city, several new creatures and weapons, while still hanging on to what made Fallout 3 a masterpiece.
I love this game, but would I say I like it better than Fallout 3? No. While the combat has improved, it lacks many wasteland elements that I loved about Fallout 3, such as metros, more ruins, more deserted places, and the story is not as good as FO3's, in my opinion. While this game certainly has more freedom than Fallout 3, I feel that Fallout 3 was more emotional. Now, I still heart New Vegas, but I just like Fallout 3 better.
Has anyone else picked up this game?
EDIT: I do have a montage showing some gameplay up. You can view it here:
