    Is NV going to get a GOTY release like FO3 did? Or did it not get GOTY?

    A GotY Edition is likely to be released before FO4 comes out and there are no more DLCs in development.

    I'm surprised that it's getting any awards at all, to be honest, I thought Fallout 3 was amazing and NV was disappointing.

    Same. I played through FO3 many times because I wanted to. I couldn't even finish FNV twice--got bored about 1/4 into the second play.

    FO3 had a much better story-line, which made one unable to quit playing at least the first play-through. I did FO3 three times, yet haven't even finished NV..

    I did the same. Started a second play through and quit a couple hours in. Haven't played it since.

    Yeah loved FO3 but for some odd reason I stoped mid way with New Vegas.

    Just goes to show how much of a difference it makes who is Developing the game, even if its on the same Game Engine.

    New Vegas is better in a literal sense, some new features like crafting but you get this i cant be bothered feeling, done this type of thing before feeling. Still i just started NV and im enjoying it although think i will play it and never touch it again.

    DLC has to add something to the game like the FO3 it added a lot to the game.

    About time they started optimizing it. The engine's graphics per performance always made me mad, which is mostly why I've never finished it.

    Yep.

    I was near the end of the main story, but decided to try Dead Money before I finished. I got an hour or so into Dead Money and then finally lost all interest in the game.

    I could load a previous save to just finish the main game, but I can't be bothered any more.

    I stopped playing NV not even half way into it :\ I keep going back and restarting and trying again but the poor optimization really buggers it up for me.

    FO3 is a very awesome game, not too keen on NV though.

    Sooooooo Mussels, eaten many brains lately? :p

    Unfortunately, Vegas's engine went backwards on both GFX and physx, which is a shame as the environments of Vegas could've really done with a GFX bump.
    No question FO3 is the better game, and maybe one of the best games of the last 10yrs.

    BABAABHAAHAHAHAHAHA......13000hrs, LOLOLOL.
    FO3 min would be probably 30hrs+, but it's an interesting game, so 60hrs+ is most likely.

    meh Fallout 3 was a mess why ppl praise a game that its DLC breaks continuity on and just tends to be idiotic is beyond me granted it was nice to continue after the main story for sure but if thats the case they never should have killed my character off either lol.

    New Vegas i feel is the better game, overall in terms of gameplay, in terms of story fallout 3 has the edge, but New Vegas i liked the factions and overall control i had where as with Fo3 i had 0 control in that sense. overall though i feel both games are entirely overrated there fun for what they are but nothing ground breaking or new. just more of the same, that said i do have around 120hrs in Fo3 and 70-80hrs in New Vegas, and i feel both games are entirely crap without mods lol
