Fallout 3 has a more engaging aesthetic, and an actual reason to load up your high level characters, crank up the difficulty to the max, and head back out into the wastes to see how many albino radscorpions and deathclaws you can beat to death before eating it.

Plus, since Fallout 3 has unlimited "good" NPCs, you can actually play as a raider/evil character without having to kill unique NPCs, and/or running out of people to kill.

I'd say both are equals, just with slightly different pros and cons that give each a unique flavor, despite the asset sharing.
I think this is exactly word for word how I feel about the two games. Both great in their own ways.

I do not at all remember enemies not respawning in New Vegas. You just have to wait a few days?

I voted very very good. The first time i played it i made the mistake of playing through the main storyline too quickly, i was quite let down. Everytime since then though i pretty much ignored the missions and just explored, which is what i'm doing now with NV as i recently started playing it for the first time. It's a fun world, even if the terrain repeats itself endlessly.

Like I said, very few, usually in interior cells. The deathclaws in Quarry Junction don't respawn (I believe there is just one cave where a few deathclaw respawn, and another with yao guai). Neither do the Super Mutants and Nightkin. All Caesar's Legion and NCR soldiers, once killed, do not respawn. Same with Powder Gangers, Kings, FotA, BoS, and every other faction, including the tribals in Honest Hearts. The only human NPCs that respawn are the raiders close to Vegas.

Old World Blues is the worst about respawning. Almost nothing comes back.

I could go on, but the short of it is that only a few critters in a very limited number of set spots actually respawn. In the end, rather than load up your best gear and roam like in Fallout 3, you have to head to specific caves to have any fun in the late game.

Comes with age, but the game is still a **** ton of fun. I finished my first playthrough a while back but I've been itching to play again. Haven't decided still if I wanna replay NV or Fallout 3. May end up being Fallout 3.

Try Fallout 2. It's hard as hell, but pretty fun once you get into the groove.

I feel like the perks and character dev in 3 are more appealing. I like the reputation system in NV but so far i feel like 3 had better replay-ability.

Edit: @ ori, i ****ing love the first two games. they kick your ass in the best way.

Plus, it's Wahington DC in the apocalypse. That's such a great concept.
