Haha. Yeah.

Fallout 3 was the better game. Although, if you're running Windows 7 I don't know how compatible it is. You might just have to change the compatibility mode or something. I thought I would just mention it.

I've played the f++k out of them both (they're my favorite games) and i can say that Fallout 3 ha a better story while New Vegas has a lot of in-game additions and improvements but storyline is a bit boring and not as engaging as Fallout 3's one.

So if you have to choose one, i'd go with fallout 3

I just picked up the DLC for New Vegas, cripes all of em for $8. I almost feel bad spending that little but I hadn't intended to ever play it again so it's more than the zero they would've gotten otherwise :p :)

As most people have said, I'd pick Fallout 3 over New Vegas. It's not that New Vegas is bad, but Fallout 3 is better.

With that said, I wouldn't be surprised if you could pick up both games and the DLC for dirt cheap these days.

Get both.
I really couldn't pick between them. Both are excellent games. New Vegas for some reason got a lot of flack but i really enjoyed it.
Fallout 3 has Three Dog and New Vegas has Best Friend Tabitha and Battle Cattle

I love Fallout 3.
New Vegas left me totally cold. I have no idea why.

Fallout 3, even though it has lots of bugs, but with some patches some bugs were able to get fixed, even though when it comes to story, and game mechanics i would go with fallout 3, but the game is just great, believe me fallout new Vegas is good but if you want a rich story and great game mechanic go with fallout 3.
