    As much as I loved NV, for me, FO3 is a much better game.

    The Metro sections swung it for me. Personally I prefer an open landscape to run along rather than forced tunnels to progress but both were bloody excellent nonetheless :)

    3 had a serious "holy shit" factor when I first stepped out of the vault and realised I could go anywhere, just seeing the world they'd created. NV was very good too, a different take on a wasteland and some decent changes.

    @Matt36 Sounds like a pain in the arse. Intel graphics maybe? http://fallout3.nexusmods.com/mods/17209#content

    EDIT: Downloaded the file from your link and its just telling me to do things I've already done.

    Bought the game today for my windows 7 laptop, without any knowledge of the problems the game has on windows 7.

    I've tried to add the ".dll" file.
    I've edited the notepad file as every website has told me.

    I'm out of ideas and will probs cry if I can't get it to work. Any suggestions, please??
    Compatibility mode as Vista
    Run as administrator

    There is a massive list of things to try but they evade me right now.

    Disabling Steam overlay is another I remember.

    Exactly for me too. FO3 totally changed my approach to games and the genres I play.

    @monkehhh Been looking for 5 hours and counting. I can see the changes you linked to me, have changed my graphics card (at least made the game think it!) from Intel to Nvidea.

    FIXED!

    From the launcher, I set to windowed, 800x xxx size, low graphics and it worked. FINALLY!

    EDIT: Cheers Widge for the post! I didnt see it until after I fixed it :)

    I don't know what it is, or what is putting me off, but I just can't get in to this game at all. I've tried in the past, but no luck. I really want to like it, I own it twice, but I don't know what the problem is :(

    I find the golden patch of the game is once you break past your initial missions. It is quite nails after you get to Megaton. Once you get a few missions under your belt, you can become a bit more self sufficient. At that point you can happily romp around the environment and really get into the game.

    I keep meaning to go back to New Vegas with some graphics mods.

    If you find some good ones then do let us know, the textures in the game can look ropey as fuck these days. I still haven't got around to finishing it off. I finally made my way to New Vegas and have started on the main missions and then I kind of stopped playing it for some reason. I should go back at some point.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I have these bookmarked to have a go at:

    http://newvegas.nexusmods.com/mods/36901
    http://newvegas.nexusmods.com/mods/42666
    http://newvegas.nexusmods.com/mods/35998

    http://newvegas.nexusmods.com/mods/35794
    http://newvegas.nexusmods.com/mods/35262

    May not use them all, but I got fed up of going to the Nexus, browsing and then forgetting what I had looked at and was interested in.

    Find it a real shame that you can't get a general "graphics overhaul" mod, like the one that exists for Morrowind and STALKER.

    The only thing that stops me getting on with this is having to piece it all together myself.

    Was it really that impressive? Plenty of games had been doing stuff like that for years. FO3 was a good game, but stepping out in to the open world was never particularly amazing in and of itself.

    @ecureuil - It was for me. I'd never played anything like FO3 before - RPGs was a genre I'd generally avoided...

    Ahh I see. I know what you mean though, FFVII had that moment for me.

    If you need enticing, this was posted to reddit today:

    FNV with visual mods.

    And here's a link to the mods used.

    Wow - that's staggeringly pretty! Makes me hanker for a kick-ass PC and the know how to implement these mods. It's also an indication of that Fallout4 could look like on the next-gen consoles :)

    The fucker keeps freezing on me in Megaton damn it. I don't want to have to buy it again for the 360, the PC version is much better.

    Get bent.

    Because it is not as good.

    I've tried three times to play this and each time didn't continue after about five hours tops.

    There is a great game in there, I just couldn't find it.

    @Choppi

    Hi Revan
    Unless you have spent around 150 hours in the wastelands don't be giving me it is not as good.

    How far did you get during your 3 "playthroughs"
