In this first-person Western RPG, the player takes on the role of Courier 6, barely surviving after being robbed of their cargo, shot and put into a shallow grave by a New Vegas mob boss. The Courier sets out to track down their robbers and retrieve their cargo, and winds up getting tangled in the complex ideological and socioeconomic web of the many factions and settlements of post-nuclear Nevada.

It’s a Bethesda open world extravaganza blended with the design priorities of an old school CRPG. It’s a real smooth mix, and the world of New Vegas is a fascinating place, with distinct communities that have their own goals, values, and aspirations.
The game’s in desperate need of a remaster, though. The creation engine is janky, slow, and kinda ugly. New Vegas still shines as a believable game world, I just wish it was more pleasant to revisit.
