I called New Vegas a predecessor. I meant successor. Oops. I'll leave the error for posterity.

Yeah, Ian was kind of a bonehead, but he was a good meat shield in a lot of cases. His IQ was probably almost as low as poor Dogmeat's.

Ian does have a kind of special place in the Fallout series, though, that being the first companion of the Vault Dweller, and hence players of the series. Unless you went about your business unconventionally. Because of that he probably died in almost everyone's games. That or he soaked up a lot of damage.

 

I think once I've put about 250+ hours into New Vegas there'll be a revisit to Fallout for the umpteenth time. My affection never changes.

I've found a surprising number of responses to my FO3 vs. NV article say they liked the writing in FO3 more. I think in a grand sweeping sense, I have to agree. FO3 maintained an overall theme and feel in the writing the NV lacks. There it feels more like a series of disjointed pieces, well written, but not well connected to the larger world.

 

Also, I still recommend modding Morrowind. It's a bigger pain in the ass than newer Bethesda games, but knowing that you already like the game, might not be a bad time investment to build upon it now.

My nod goes to NV in the NV vs FO3 match off. The story in NV is told almost entirely through the characters which admittedly make it feel disjointed as you can't see everything through character, only the character's point of view and the narrator is sometimes unreliable. It feels more first person.

FO3 is told through a combination of a danged good saga-riffic plot and an incredibly unified visual sweep. More third person and traditional. While I would marry either of them, I want to be buried next to NV.

For anyone who may not be aware - there is a new sort of compilation mod available called Morrowind Overhaul. According to an article I read at PC World it does not involve an inhuman amount of DIY. It has an apparently simplified-ish installer, provided you are working with a vanilla install of the game.

They have just released version 3.0 which means...Well I don't know what that means actually, since I have no idea what versions 1.0 and 2.0 were comprised of. Anyway, there it is. Morrowind keeps living on.
