Which game do you prefer? The Elder Scrolls V : Syrim or Fallout 3?
I'm currently wondering whether to play Elder Scrolls Syrim or Fallout 3

Fallout 3, hands down. I simply love crawling through the ruins of downtown DC, punching Deathclaws to death and blowing up VertiBirds as they try to land.

Not to mention Liberty Prime!

Fallout 3

Fallout 3 -- not even a contest

I play skyrim because I played Fallout 3 to death 1000 times over already ..
and Fallout NV was OK but just not as good as Fallout 3...

warning though . Fallout 3 default game is buggy .. you absolutely have to do a few INI tweaks to get it to run without freezing .
and the Unoffical patches are pretty much offcial now , they fix tons of small texture and model issues ..
even still Fallout 3 story and gameplay is the High Water Mark for theses types of games.

All vanilla Bethesda games are buggy as Hell, but atleast they're not Obsidian. I wouldn't dare play Skyrim without the unofficial patches... and even then, they're not as much of a saving grace as you would hope.

Especially the last fight in Dragonborn... oh god...

This is a Skyrim Tread be careful though one of the mods might come by and ban you for a day or two for mentioning it. Even though they sell the game.

The Unnoficial Patches will help you with that. When I was new I was afraid to use them but now they make my game much less buggier and very usable.

I have wished Fallout 3 was made for Windows 7 many times hailey. Have Fallout New Vegas but never played it much.

I have fallout 3 on win 7 ,, its a simple ini edit fix...
check the fallout 3 steam forums it's posted on the top as a sticky

i would choose both. skyrim makes everything feel epic. fallout 3 makes you expierience the heat of an intense gunfight and such, lol.

The unofficial patch for Dragonborn doesn't really get around the final boss and the scripting. if it did, I wouldn't havehad to reload 40 some odd times because of it.

FO3 is an amazing experience, however, I would suggest getting Skyrim if you have any hopes of getting into Elder Scrolls Online. First - it also is an amazing game, second, it will be helpful to know how Elder Scrolls works so-to-speak.

The other thing to consider, it's pretty easy to use up all the Fallout content...and I mean all of it. It's why I stopped playing...the same is not true of Skyrim...there just seems to be a lot more to do in Elder Scrolls games.

Either way you can't really go wrong...

Skyrim, easily! I LOVED Fallout 3. It's still one of my all-time favorite games. That was the game that got me into both Bethesda games and RPG games in general. Since then, however, I've been engulfed by the canon and lore of the Elder Scrolls series. Fallout is amazing, but Elder Scrolls is just so... Unique... I mean how many games out there let you play as a lizard man or a cat man? Not to mention all the awesome new features they've added in with Skyrim.

I just hope a lot of the features carry over into Fallout 4. In my opinion, Fallout's combat needs a MAJOR overhaul. Keep VATS, but make the gunfights interesting even without it. Obsidian made a good move including iron sights. If they were to just add sprinting like in Skyrim and make it so that you AND the enemies can sprint, then the fights would really get interesting and dynamic. Some basic cover system might be cool too, but that's just going overboard.

Both series are amazing in their own rights; but with a 1v1 of Fallout 3 vs Skyrim, Skyrim just takes the cake.

Played every TES game that isn't Arena (really should get to it, but I have Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim all vying for my TES time), Redguard (should buy a copy for future use), Battlespire (I hear it's buggy even by Bethesda standards) or the mobile games (not interested in mobile phone games). No plans on every touching the MMO.

As for content, the only thing that keeps Skyrim going after a point is the "radiant" quests, and they're basically all the same, just in a random location. But Skyrim does have massive mod support, something Fallout 3 lacks because everybody fawns over New Vegas, even if it...

Well, that's a whole other topic.
