Oh, here's another random question:

Anyone else fight tooth and nail to keep Dogmeat alive through Fallout 1?

/That dog's the only NPC I will accept.
//You're cool and all, Fawkes, but no.  It's me and the pooch.

log_jammin: 3 and NV were both great in their own ways.

3 was fun for just general exploring and fining new things and locations. I liked popping up out of the subway to some new area and finding some little out of the way place.
NV felt much more like 1 & 2 did. tons of side quests, great story line with lots of tough choices, lots more weapons/armor variates, names/places/characters from the first 2 games, etc..

My only quibble with NV is it didn't let me explore as much as 3 did. I really hope they can merge those two strengths effectively.

One thing I liked about 1 & 2 (never played NV) was that you could do the "right" thing, and end up with a somewhat worse outcome.  You could help that humble mayor/sheriff overcome the crime boss, which is basically the right thing to do, but the place actually REALLY prospers in the end if you help that crime boss.

Glad that this is coming from the minds of FO3 and not New Vegas. I really tried to like NV, but it came off like it was pushed out the door about 40% complete. It's almost like they made a teaser for the full-version of the game and then said "Ah fark it, let's just make them pay full price for this." NV cleaned up a few of the gameplay issues of FO3, and then they forgot to make a game for it. And the Weird Wasteland option had something like a dozen effects, most of which were just lame movie references.

The best things they could do for FO4 are:
1) Vehicles - I want to be able to use the Repair skill and salvage parts to restore vehicles and drive them around. Maybe set up a quest for going into the wastes to find/restore rare cars and bring them back to a collector. Raiders riding on jeeps with machine-guns attached to them. That kind of thing.
2) Crossbows - C'mon! It's a stealth ranged weapon with reusable ammo. Where is it?
3) Better options for playing evil - FO3 basically had one evil option: Destroy Megaton. That's it. You could in-general run around and be a bastard, but it didn't change the story. What they should have done is allow you to side with President Eden when you spoke to him, and enter the 'evil track' where the Brotherhood takes the water purifier and you help the Enclave take it back. That would also mean that you are the one who kills your father. They had a really good story for the a guy playing the good track, but then got away with an evil track of "yeah you basically do the same thing, but you're also mean".

Practical_Draconian: Is the Fallout 3 DLC worth it? I have the collector's edition of FO3 but Microsoft Games for Windows still wants $20 for the add-ons

Thought about picking the GOTY edition on Steam but it never went on sale last month.

Broken Steel is a must. It continues where the main quest left off and raises the level cap. The Pitt was kind of odd. Had some cool weapons, I just couldn't get into it. Mothership Zeta was crazy but a lot of fun. Especially if you went and did that one early, then brought the weapons back to DC with you. Point Lookout was kind of lackluster for me. Operation Anchorage was ....odd. It turned FO3 into more of an arcade shooter than an RPG. The gear was worth it and it was pretty short. Just strange.

FoxKelfonne: So, is it weird that I love Fallout 3 / New Vegas, but think that Oblivion and Skyrim are pretty boring? I mean, they're both big open world sandboxy type games, but for some reason I just don't enjoy the Elder Scrolls..

I stopped playing New Vegas until Old World Blues came out. And even then I only played it through once. I just can't get into Skyrim at all.

Take your time Bethesda, my wrists are recovering from a F: NV binge and trying out the new support toon in League of Legends (meh).

Had a feeling Boston would be the next locale.

However, after playing XCOM EU, I really, really, REALLY want a Fallout Tactics sequel. Bonus if you play as what's left of the Enclave trying to take over Detroit/Toronto while fending off the Brotherhood of Steel -- who at the end of Fallout Tactics had endings that implied the Midwestern branch of the BoS became a sinister force -- along with the usual Fallout rabble and other factions (Caesar?).

New Vegas also made me sympathetic towards the Enclave, and I kinda sensed House might have been affiliated with them, especially when discussing his outright hatred of the Brotherhood of Steel.

Man I played the f*ck out of Fallout 3. It's about damn time they start up with the FO4 stuff.

New Vegas was ok. It was really nerdy though. I can't put my finger on it, but FO3 was like playing a survival world, whereas NV just felt like I was playing a board game but with graphics.

Kinda like how Skyrim feels like you're a viking out in the wild, but the latest DLC island thing makes me feel like I'm playing dungeons and dragons. Is that weird?
