Depends on if you like FPS RPG's or TPA RPG's, they are both great games.

Yeah but that's beside the point. I wouldn't be asking unless I already knew it was a genre that I like. I am asking because several reviews mentioned that new vegas is just recycling quite a few things from the original fallout 3 and that gothic 4 is on the whole a weak game and just not the same as the original games of the gothic series. So that's why I am asking for opinions here to verify if that is the truth or not from gamers from a category that might not be prejudiced.

If you're looking for a sequel to Gothic 3 then better buy Risen. Gothic 4 has not been programmed by the same people who made the other games, they just hold the license. From what I have read neither Risen nor Gothic 4 are superb games but Risen is supposed to be much better.

Not so sure about Vegas myself, it looks like a big expansion for Fallout 3 rather than a new game. Same engine, new quests.

While I'm very interested in Vegas at the moment, from what I've heard it's almost unplayable due to bugs. Granted I'm sure most of it is hyperbole, but it wouldn't hurt to wait for patches to come out and the price to come down. It's not like waiting two years to buy a Call of Duty for the multiplayer, single player will still be there.

Probably a bad analogy. I have no idea what multiplayer is like. Haven't played any of them since the first game came out.

Well if you liked Fallout 3, you will like vegas, I'm playing it right now, and the question is: Is more of a good thing a bad thing? answer is no, unless your all played out on FO3.

I have New Vegas on pre-order, should hopefully arrive tomorrow morning. From what I've heard there are bugs, but they're not necessarily game-breaking - more inconvenient than anything, as well as hyped.

As for its similarities to the previous game, as Mihail said - if you liked the previous game, how is that a bad thing? More to the point, what exactly were you expecting other than a new storyline and a new locale with otherwise similar gameplay?

It makes me laugh to hear people complaining about it being too similar to FO3, when they're presumably also buying Call of Duty each and every year. Or even worse - FIFA.

@Mr. Matt, Not really sure where to draw the line between the "new storyline and new locale" and "quality" mods because if it is a quality mod, it may be equal to such a thing and do all that you mentioned. Only thing missing in that is that you don't have good studio quality VA (if at all) and there might be quite a few bugs that may be relatively annoying but all that is covered by the fact that it's free whereas in the case of the studio making the game, you have to at least pay $40 or more. That's why I make a point of asking whether it really is worth the $40 because I could just get "more of a the good thing with mods" for free. As for the bugs, I hear that they already made a patch to adress those problems. EDIT: Can you keep playing NV after finishing everything like in Oblivion and with the DLC for FO3? What is the likelihood that there will be mods for this?
