Looking for a new open world fix....seen everything there is in skyrim.

I've beaten both fallout 3 and NV....but never played any of the DLC for either. I thought fallout 3 was great, but NV seemed a little rushed to me. DLC changes everything....for anyone who's played both, which had the better add-on content?

On average the NV DLC was better. Fallout 3 Point Something, Mothership Zeta and Broken Steel are pretty great though

Both were pretty great, actually but NV gets a small edge for being newer and having some in-game optimizations over FO3.

However.... at sale prices, you really should buy both and really treat yourself.

I prob will eventually, more of a which should I do first thing.

What I didn't like in NV was how you had to start picking sides, and locking yourself out of a lot of content. I'm not really interested in replaying to see everything. Is the DLC like the main game in that way?

Id be starting a fresh character on each and basically skipping straight to the DLC...not a prob I assume?

I played a little bit of the first 3 DLC, the combat simulator one, and it seemed pretty dumb. Are the rest better?

Operation: Anchorage (the simulator one) is probably the worst of the bunch, but it ends much better than it starts. I think one of the FO3 DLC's (Broken Steel) doesn't kick in until the main quest is done. NV's DLC should be accessible from the start, though from what I remember of it parts were kind of difficult even with a maxed character. Overall NV's DLC is better but I'd definitely play through both. And with one exception I think (end of Lonesome Road) you won't have to face decisions that lock you out of content.

NV is by far the best for DLC, they were really cool with great story lines.
