For that I am great full. Fallout New Vegas has the makings of a great game, GOTY it is not but fun filled time in the wasteland it is! Riddled with new characters along with new upgradeable weapons is cool. NV does have it's flaws for example while in the wasteland enemies become lodged into the ground or stuck in the air, after killing said enemy they actually fall through the map. Some of the V.A.T.S usage becomes unreliable at times causing you to miss your target.
For a lower level character starting off it is best to stick with the missions at hand instead of wondering around the wasteland.
Obsidian has updated the "companion wheel" which is easy to use when you get a partner to go along in the wasteland with you.
One of the things that they have done is letting you make your own ammo which is very frustrating and time consuming.
All in all New Vegas is a great sequel and has opened the door for many more add on's as well as whole games in general. Bugs and Glitches are found but they are few and far between now thanks to the recent update/patch.
Game rocks as always. Love the change of scenery, the weapons, iron sights. Now if they would just add a level of multiplayer to the game. Nothing crazy like, but how about instead of or in addition to your companions, you get a live 1 or 2. I think the idea of running around with companions is great. They help to take the heat off ya in sticky situations. The only downside is they aren't that smart. So why not up the intelligence by letting an actual player fill the spot. That is the only thing I think this game is missing.
