I think the VATS is next to useless. When out of VATS, I easily got shots that had a 5% hit chance or so.

Then again, it could just be my S.T.A.L.K.E.R. experience talking.

I never liked vats. I prefered playing it as an fps with all the hard-ships that come without a pause-button.    
   
Just used it to get better vision on them raider titties from time to time.

And did you know, in Fallout NV, you could take a shot of steady, and then you would have 95% to hit anything regardless how far away it is.

I always use V.A.T.S. when there are millions of **** to shoot, and I don't know which one to start. So V.A.T.S. is like a moment of pause of my excited nerves.

Plus, what in the world there is better than watching a slow-mo bullet hitting an enemy head and bursting it to pieces.

That's why I liek it, it makes my game expirenece 100 times better.

While I wouldn't call it useless, it was definitely extraneous. Only two reasons to use V.A.T.S. are Mysterious Stranger and Paralyzing Palm. Any other V.A.T.S. related perk, you don't need if you're not using V.A.T.S. regularly.

You aren't supposed to use VATS in long range

And I don't. Come to think of it, that may be the main reason I never used it - I only sniped.

Yeah, VATS isn't really for snipers. It is mostly supposed to be in a heated close quarters battle when you can't aim well because the enemy is in your face.

I've never had any problems with that, either. I just shoot them in the face until they stop moving. Later, when I got Boone, I didn't even have to bother with that - he just offed anyone that came within 10 meters of me. After I gave him a sniper rifle, he offed everyone who came within 50 meters of me.

Use vats in a close quarters battle with a combat shotgun or the anti-material rifle from new vegas, THEN tell me it's next to useless.

the point of V.A.T.S. isn't for auto shooting its for combat when you're too exited to manually aim, also it does 180s way faster than you could, plus you're almost invincible when in it. So don't complain about it when you personally use it wrong.

Also it's pretty damn awesome to see a bullet enter a mutants head in slow-motion.

and this is exactly why every console shooter should be on servers with pc gamers.

because they suck ass and they deserve to be on the bottom of any ranking.

nah man, i have no problem with casuals, they just have to stop pretending they're anything but casual gamers.

can't be precise with a crappy controller in a shooter like you can with a mouse.

meh, you can't say aim is easy on fallout ps3/xbox when you have played fps since 15years on consoles and since 10 on pc.

"Plus you're almost invincible while in it"
Only true in FO3, in New Vegas you still take a majority of the damage you normally would.

At close range. But the computer sets limits at extreme long distance. So for snipers shooting at cell distance, V.A.T.S. is rarely useful.

Yeah, I mostly sniped. I don't think I've ever even received melee damage in New Vegas.
