New Vegas was like 10x better.

Nice review though. FO3 did have it strong points. Though I personally thought that the beautiful mushroom cloud was reason enough to nuke Megaton. Moral choices and lost side-quests be damned.

Does that make me a bad person?

No, it doesn't; and I guess that's kind've the point :/

I have been wanting to play New Vegas, by the way, but it just hasn't made it onto my busy gaming schedule. I liked everything I heard about it (except the supposedly rampant glitches)

The glitches are mostly gone by now.

The only glitch I've really noticed is the one where sometimes your rifle flips itself upside down when your character slings it over his back.

Makes sneaking look a little silly, but I've yet to encounter a really game-breaking bug.

Just goes to show, it doesn't hurt to wait to play a game!

Western RPGs are best when you wait for a bit.

So many glitches get covered in patches released over the next couple months, it's crazy. I remember taking an extended hiatus from Dragon Age Origins just because I dl'd the Return to Ostagar pack as soon as it came out on XLA...and found out the next day that it was immediately taken down because of a glitch that disabled any specialization classes for characters that hadn't already been found and applied to a character. That was awesome...

And reading the Oblivion wiki can find you some even better patched glitches. Like imagine playing that and finding out your Fighter's Guild progress came to an end because you explored a cave before getting a guild mission to go there, which prevents a necessary corpse from spawning, which means you can't finish a mission, which means your advancement in the guild is over. That glitch is gone now, but just reading about stuff like that is a great reason to wait a while after games like that come out before buying them.

Although it would have been interesting to see what our Facebook "friends" would have thought about Tom Chick's New Vegas review, based solely on the initial product that seemed to have glitched horribly for him. Like would the comment apocalypse have been lesser or greater than the current Uncharted 3 one?
