Fallout 3 began with your character being born. Fallout: New Vegas begins with your character being shot in the head.
Two years after Bethesda's reboot of the post-apocalyptic RPG series, we return once again to the wasteland, only this time the setting has been moved from DC to Nevada. With no number in the title and a new developer at the reins—Obsidian Entertainment, already known for working on sequels like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 and Neverwinter Nights 2—it's easy to look at New Vegas as a simple spin-off, but that would be dismissing it unfairly: this is a game with as much depth and flexibility as its predecessor. Unfortunately, like some of Obsidian's previous games, New Vegas is hampered by technical issues that taint an otherwise excellent experience.
