@lordebon: Old World Blues DLC is a must have the others are garbage. Head over to a MOD website to find oodles of goodies for free


I've played a bunch of the dlc and it's meh. The game is absolutely fantastic by itself - seriously more like a whole series of games in one. I never play games more than once and I've started several games on this - it just keeps going and going.


@brad3326: Haven't played the DLC, honestly. It's usually a mixed bag (And to my knowledge still is for F:NV) with some DLC being decent and others being sort of in the "Why Bother" category. In my experience (with F3 DLC) some are decent and add to the game: e.g., Broken Steel, which ret-con'd the ending and rightfully opened things up. And then some are just mediocre or just plain meh. Perhaps the biggest thing I dislike is how self-contained they often are... for being masters of the open-world game, their DLC so often comes in its own little self-contained world.

If you've got the time to play it, I'd say at $5 it's worth taking the jump. A quick look at the DLC on metacritic shows a mixed bag (60s to low 70s), so for DLC I'd say pick and choose what you want (if you want any at all).


@lordebon: Is it worth it without the DLC? There's maybe 6 of 'em, 4 at $2.49, half the price of the game. Is it fun without the DLC (or any better than the others?) or should I just hold out for a GOTY edition next year? I've waited this long, I can wait a little longer, I guess. I loved Fallout 3


One of the greatest games ever made. Could keep you busy for 100 hours if you let it.


$5 for an awesome FPS-RPG you can easily spend 50+ hours on is an absolute steal. In terms of amount of entertainment for the dollar games like this on deals like this are nigh impossible to beat.
