This is one of the more pick which side you want game. Besides the factions attacking you or helping you you will always be running out of money for the unquie mods for weapons. At its heart it feels old and new. Pick how and when to engage eliminate them and do what you want with more relistic results.
This is a great game. I really loved how the adventure is going on through the story, and I am really liking hardcore mode. I have my difficulity set on hard too, while on hardcore mode, because Imma beast when it comes to RPG games.
This game is great, I love all the fallouts, I don't even care who makes them anymore, I love the genre and will never get tired of the post apocalyptic open world setting. Of course, nothing beats Fallout 2.
