Why did I ever buy this game

It's not even worth it. It's the same old argument of if someone disagrees with you they're wrong and you're right. So go ahead and insult the game for using a formula which has been used by the game series since day one, just not by modern game standards. Whatever.

I don't see how I'm being lazy. I've updated all my drivers and my hardware is more than enough to play the game on max details. Had no problems in Fallout 3 either. It's obvious that the game is really buggy and the developers were rushed to slap something together and get it out of the door. That's nothing new to me. Seems like 99% of most software and games come out like that these days. The economy is in shambles and greedy corporations want all the money you can give to them before they go bust. CEOs underpay their employees and demand them to work long exhausting hours just to suck every penny they can out of the end user/buyer.

That's capitalism and I'm all for it for the most part but I think some standards should be implemented that force companies to produce quality instead of quantity. It used to be that you could buy a game and it would work if you had the hardware to play it. Games weren't nearly as sophisticated but developers took their time to make a quality item. Games used to be about $20 cheaper on average back then as well. Today, they are overpriced and have more bugs than an inner-city taco bell. I just wish some laws were passed that forced companies that made things to put quality into their work or full returns + interest was paid to the customer if there is enough evidence to suggest that the item wasn't quality made.

In the case of Fallout NV, I think it's safe to say that it's not a quality item. It's trashware at this stage and it's going to take a lot of patches just to get it to a stable level. This game really needed another 6 to 12 months of production time before being released on the general market. They didn't even put the game through any real stringent beta testing either. To me, that's unacceptable considering millions of people would have GLADLY beta tested the game prior to release and that's FREE testing for the game developer to see how buggy a game is. Instead, Bethesda/Obsidian just rushed the game out hoping to nickle and dime everyone and charged us to beta test for them. That's unacceptable and should be illegal.

Tell me, would you buy a car that was slapped together and then report each day to the manufacturer that during the day the front tires fell off, the windshield cracked, the engine suddenly stalled on the freeway about 5 times and the AM/FM radio kept fading in and out? Of course not. That would be crazy. So why should game consumers be any less demanding that their games be made to work right out of the box? The bottom line is - THEY SHOULDN'T!

Personally, I have not had one crash or any major issues with bugs. However, in my opinion, the game does not really offer anything new. Quite frankly it has bored me, and I just have had no interest in playing it any further.

Just to have to add... "Today, they are overpriced and have more bugs than an inner-city taco bell." That is freakin' hilarious.

Well, previous to the patch, I had maybe a crash every few hours.

Since updating to the 285 patch, they've fixed the stuttering issues but replaced the stuttering with crashing. In the one hour i've been trying to play since my last attempt (UNKILLABLE ENEMIES LOL), i've crashed 9 times.

Who needs a world map of the game when I can see my desktop every 5 minutes so I can just leave up Firefox with a world map since it'll crash to it by the time I need the map?

Quick answer Configuration it's what you have on your PC from hardware to software from registry errors to whatever. A patch might do wonders for you but might screw my game up cause of the difference in our rigs. That's why developers are leaning more towards consoles and less towards PC's my xbox360 hardware setup is just like yours, same vid card, same drivers, not much difference (unless you modded it than that's on you), but my PC can be way different. It's easy to develope a game for a console cause you can actually bring in that console and work out the kinks. It's not that their rushing to bring a game to market in most cases. It's just one of those things you can't avoid no matter what you do, some PC Gamer is always going to have problems, and blame it on the game

Which would be a nice convenient excuse and all for Obsidian if not for the fact that the console versions are suffering as well with the XBOX360 tech support forum being about as active as the PC forum. There's even some commonalities at play here with the XBOX version seeing the "Come Fly With Me" saved game corruption issue that plagues PC users.

And looking at a more recent hyped release in Call of Duty: Black Ops, that looks to be the case there as their Playstation 3 version is hurting.

Even normalized hardware cannot hide shoddy production value.

I am still playing and loving the game. I have no major issues or bugs with my game. In my mind I still say this game is a GOTY Edition.
