Seriusly those with mordern cards are pritty much smack it up full graphics and lets see if we can break the games. I have a two year old lappy and it can run graphic hoggers perfectly fine. I never have glitches at all bar that one glitch on FNV. I live by a code never run on full! n Never attempt to break the games.

I run it full on just because i can, not to break the game with my rig same as i did in fallout 3, and i have had minor issues due to a bug, mostly ive had issues with trainers or a mod, compared to other games where ive had a ****load of errors includeing mirrors edge and also different MMO's and such Fallout 3 and New vegas have been flawless for me.

Ive been very fortunate with Fallout 3 since majority of people having issues say it is nearly every one, who experience crashes constantly and heads spinning around, call me a fan boy all you want but how can i say it has bugs when ive not seen them.

Hehe na am a fanboy to mate since day one. only one glitch fer me. Other than that am extremly happy with the game Even with all my other games never had any issues at all one a crash with the trainer but that was my fault lol over excited. I personaly still think its a game of the year game in my books

Had 2 CTD - both of which were due to other software deciding to auto run 1st was my Anti-Spy ware, and was a scheduled De frag.

Only other 'bug / glitch' I have had was a good glitch ( Is there such a thing ) when my character levelled up from 13 to 54 for some reason. Gave me 680 skill points to allocate - so I jumped at the chance to max out my character.

Pretty much MOST new games have bugs in them, some minor others are major. It's all down to the bosses wanting the game out by a set date. I see us the gamers as the final quality control. Heck the old Doom games had their fair share of bugs with invisible walls in doorways, Hall of Mirror effects where the rooms were not done properly.

I don't think GOTY as far as for the RPG genre, but there isn't much other competition for it. Mass Effect 2 should blow it out of the water to get GOTY to be honest, since they both operate as action RPGs. I wouldn't hold Vegas in the same breath as Fallout 3 which was a classic RPG. Vegas, IMO, is a mess of a game from storyline through quest-line, with worse characters looks than what was already weak character looks in Fallout 3.

At least the character factions in Fallout 3 were more plausible.

I love the plot lines and stories with each faction. Chosse a way and follow it to the end thats what am doing and its awesome The characters to me are great for the area. I get the good old feel from way back when I played fallout 1. I still have to come accross all these issues people have. But I still go with GOTY for GNV. Am 37 hours in and loving it to bits

is anyone else here as disappointed in the PC games they put out. Once again Fallout New Vegas could have been a top notch game. But it has to many bugs. Anyone get missions that you cannot finish because of the game? yea yea I know use console to restart mission but then it crashes any way. Does anyone else get random crashes or old saves that will not work no matter what? Because of the dam saved game crashes I had to restart 3 times. Enough is enough there should be lemon laws for PC games. then again if they did they would never sell a game any way.

Am shocked that there are tones of people having issues. I even asked my buds at gameanyone and most are getting slight glitches. Like me I get slight glitches here and there but nothing that is serious. I love this game and it is certinly another GOTY in my books

Yeah I feel the same way, the only real glitch I've come across is the rad scorpions under the map. I'm glad I spent the money on it as I have many quality hours of gaming out of it, and probably many more.

If you don't experience glitches in F:NV, it's because you either aren't looking or don't know what you're looking for.

There are 3 official compilation bug list threads on the Bethesda forums of actual, repeatable glitches.

Here's an example:

Minor - Terminal resource doesn't load -> i.imgur.com/5Lim1.jpg

If you saw it, you wouldn't really care. Would you even notice? Doubt it. You'd need to be looking or really anal to notice.

Major - Falling through the world -> i.imgur.com/e5eHa.jpg

It's these ones that happen randomly that make people mad. There's no workaround and since they can be random, it's harder to say "do this and you'll fall through the world". But are you saying the people in the 4+ page long corrupted save file thread all a bunch of liars when they said doing "Come Fly With Me" quest resulted in their saved game being corrupted and having to start over?


Are these guys lying? I have this glitch. It takes me 15 minutes to make **** on reloading benches because I have to exit and reload the bench multiple times.

Why? Because I set my settings too high? What does that have to do with anything? That's ridiculous.

Or how about this guy: www.rockpapershotgun.com/2010/10/19/fallout-new-vegas-old-obsidian/

He's a paid reviewer. Paid. Gets money to do this. Like, these people send him free games to say good things for them. Stuff you and I wish we could do. And he poops all over it. Is he a liar?

Game of the year? Yeah right. I can't even assign hotkeys to anything because they were too lazy to give us a real interface when they lazily ported it from console to PC so it takes 15 clicks just to turn off the radio on your arm.

I mean Serisuly I have not came accross any of these problems people are having I have seen the sites and read them. Like I said I have only had one glitch with a ghost Ghoul. Nothing else has went wrong with my game at all. Am not saying these dudes are lying at all. Am saying I have had no problems like these people at all.

I can assign hotkeys :s so I have no clue why your saying you cant. Dude FO3 was done for the PC and put on the Consoles so was FONV so its not been ported from the console! So dont give me that rubbish. You dont like having to use the controls on your pipboy shows me that your lazy and want it to be one button push here and there. Heck I nearly get the feeling you want it to play the game itself.

I really dont care about those that get to review games. This game runs completly fine for me and I stick by GOTY title for it. Also I aint gona go bloody looking for glitches in a game. That not why I buy games.

This game imo is more of a sequel to the first 2 fallout games than FO3 is. Ive had some ctds some not many but not as much as say oblivion when it first came out. I have come to expect release bugs from any studio with any rpg type game, sad but its the state of the business these days.

It is not just glitch, it is the random CTD drive me crazy. I guess my Phenom II 1090t and GTX 285 are too good for game engine.

The funny thing is that I didn't have stupid random CTD until they patch the game. (FPS wasn't pretty but at least i can play the game more than 20 min.)
