FONV felt like you could be your own. You were nameless and had little origin, usually referred to as the Courier. It was light hearted but very central to paving your own way through a post-apocalyptic wasteland. There was a main storyline, but so many others to be engrossed in. FO3 was expansive, yes, but it was quite central to the main story. There wasn't too much to explore besides city ruins. It felt like a typical hero's journey, following the footsteps of his father. FONV had more build-up; starting from nothing and rising to the top, whatever you choose. Also the FONV DLC's were pretty darn awesome (except for Dead Money. Dead Money was kinda creepy and difficult)

What about Red Lucy? I mean, you get her eggs and she's like your sex slave.

The best part of NV was having the Black Widow perk and sleeping with Benny.

The mountains wouldn't be that close west. After going over the map several times, I have concluded that my childhood home would have been about 2 mmiles just west of where the map ended.

I have to disagree. Fallout 3 had a much better build up, you start your character as he is born and you are immediatly faced with tragedy. You play the character from his first babysteps upto manhood and beyond. YOU are the character. Unlike the courier, who already had a history before you came along. He has seen and done stuff that you don't know about, his history is never layed out all that well. And you, the player, are just along for the ride.

The openworld concept of this genre wasnt as great in NV as it was in FO3. Right from the start you are herded into specific directions. You cannot even go north becuase a ********** deathclaws, conveniently placed, block this route and will murderrape your scrawny level1.
Mountaint ranges then offer naturally barriers that force you into a beaten path. Unlike FO3 which basicly said "Here's megaton but really, **** you, go nuts".

Also important, Fallout 3 really drove the point home you are in a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland. Something NV simply doesnt do all that well, at times it feels more like a western. But not FO3, it constantly reminds you with memorable landmarks that damn near anyone would recognize, showing the images of a broken civilzation into your face. The Mojave is simply not as impressionable as Washington DC (in ruins).
By no merrits was NV a bad game, oh no. If i can trust Steam i have spend well over 200h playing it and i've had a blast. But overall, i found FO3 to be a better experience in areas that matter more to me personally.

As a fan of both games, I can agree with the more open-world concept of the Capital Wasteland, but the way New Vegas ends makes it a much more satisfying experience for everyone, because there's CHOICES in what you do. You pick how the story of the glistening city ends. Fallout 3 had more roaming freedom, New Vegas had more story freedom, your choices actually made a difference in the story, instead of ending pretty much the same way. The New Vegas endings are so drastically different, as well, from an anarchistic independence to the tyrannical rule of Caesar.
