Witch game is better Fallout 3 or Fallout New Vegas?

If you want to begin your adventure with the Fallout franchise, you should choose one of the 3D games. This is because Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 are already quite outdated and difficult to play these days. If you decide to buy the older parts of the series, then you will have to choose between Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas.

The choice is not the easiest. This is because both games have strong points. For many people, Fallout New Vegas, is the best part of the series. Why?

  1. Title from Obsidian Entertainment has the best plot. Decisions that you make during the game have a significant impact on the storyline. So, you can play the game several times and not feel tired.
  2. Quests are definitely more varied. They don't look like they were made according to a single pattern. In addition, you can often solve things simply by talking.

On the other hand, the beginning of Fallout New Vegas is difficult. It’s more challenging to find good equipment in this game. Consequently, combat can be difficult. So, if you expect an easier start, you'd better reach for Fallout 3. At this moment, it’s also worth mentioning that this game has some strong points, too.

  1. The story takes place in Washington. Locations are more diverse than in New Vegas with its never-ending desert.
  2. The world is definitely more alive, and you will met many types of enemies. Moreover, the opponents are memorable.

So, if you are looking for an interesting plot, you should check out Fallout New Vegas. In case you want to explore the world, it’s better to choose Fallout 3.
