    I'd suggest FO:NV. I find TES fantasy setting to be too generic for my liking. There's only so much elves and dragons a man can have in his geeky youth. New Vegas combines great style of Fallout with an interesting story that doesn't revolve around saving the world for once.
    The night is dark and full of terrors...

    I'm going to go with Fallout too. I just enjoy the setting a hell of a lot more than Elder scrolls, although I've played both extensively.

    Okay, here is my take. The Elder Scrolls uses every milquetoast fantasy cliche then adds a little Gore and sex to make it game suitable for adult gamers vis a vis a M rating. The truth is its IP is totally inspired by Tolkien. There is simply NOTHING NEW HERE. For that Reason I prefer Fallout 3 GOTY and Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition to both Skyrim and Oblivion. The only area where I will make a concession is graphics. Skyrim is freaking beautiful, but you know what. Myst was beautiful in its day and age and furthermore MYST at least had a relatively inspired story, even though it was basically a glorified slide show. SO yeah I would throw, Myst, Riven, and Exile in front of Elder Scrolls games as well!

    I actually like the post apocalyptic setting, which is Fallout.
    So I choose Fallout, I've never actually ever enjoyed Elder Scrolls, and I've tried Morrowwind, Oblivion and Skyrim. Just not the game series for me.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    And Honestly Vats had its origins in Fallout 1 and 2. If it wasn't in the game I would have table flipped every table at Bethesda's HQ.
    To be honest, I've gotten to play NV (big mistake though), and carefully planning the character played almost the same as just picking up random things and playing it like FPS.
    You only feel the difference when you are to fight overpowered monsters - they usually have huge damage, impossible speed and tons of HPs, something that'd be quite unfair in true FPS game.

    I mean seriously, who decided that in Skyrim the empire should be a roman rip-off, complete with identical armor? Fuck's shake, they could do so much more with a fantasy setting and decide on that shit. That's one of many things that bother me.

    um fallout 3/NV has caesars legion....
