I hated raiden III, it had to be the most boring shooter I've ever played.

Well here's the thing.

I bought Fallout GOTY for PS3 when it came out. Started playing it and really enjoyed it.

Got about nine hours in and the game just wouldn't work. It kept crashing. I literally could not progress - but I enjoyed what I played of the game.

What I don't like is their lack of QA and their generally horrible standards for what constitutes a "finished" game for them.

From what I've read, the 360 version is much stabler than the PS3 version, so I decided to try it again.

Well...I hope you get to finish it...because it's one of the best games if you like exploring. Too bad you can't mod it though and blah blah blah [/PC gaming rant].

Anywho, hope it works out for you. Seriously. Glad you gave it another chance.

Oh yeah that place where some people are worshipping an unexploded atomic bomb. Game is full of dark humor as well. I played both Fallout 3 and NV quite extensively on PS3 and though some game breaking freezes occured, mostly this was few and far between(and mostly at certain areas). I eventually just made a habit of saving constantly.

There are some other things I don't like about Fallout 3 and NV which is mostly also engine related. Primary that the dialogue(which is mostly excellent) would have much more impact(and as such the story) if facial animations weren't so expressionless. Everyone looks like an autistic mute in the game. Also, espescially NV, seems to have often great trouble rendering distances. Other things the games conveyed really well, espescially the sense of exploration(which is genuinely interesting because you never know what to expect or discover) and the storylines that have often deep thematic layers to them.

It are very absorbing games as well. I sometimes completely forgot the time and played till the early morning :p If the next Fallout is on the engine of the new Elder scrolls, the game can have even more potential. Instead of 'just' being great but technically flawed.
