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.

This is about my 4th time playing this game now. I fully believe that this is possibly the greatest game ever produced by the industry, or personally my favourite ever.
Top notch writing, beautiful and atmospheric world, the DLC (which I'll review individually) on itself are amazing and intertwined stories and overall is one of the most fun RPGs I've ever played. Only problem is it was buggy at launch, but with one of the most biggest modding communities not only does it fix all the problems but grants infinite replay ability with bug fixes, improvements and even new content and additions. Pick up the ultimate edition of this game for less than 5 quid, and I promise you will get one of the best experiences in gaming.
Fallout: New Vegas is, in my opinion, a flawed masterpiece.
It is near unparalleled in quality, with 4 endings (that all have different variations based on what you do in that playthrough), with tons of side quests (many having multiple outcomes) and plentiful player choice that has real impacts.
However, there are 2 glaring issues within the game.
First, the lack of content for Caesar's Legion. The Legion was rushed during development and it is noticeable in game. They have the least amount of content out of the four factions@, though the content that exists is (much like the rest of the game) amazing.
The second, is the game's glitches. Whilst I personally have not any glitches/crashes that really break the game (even when modded), many have. This can greatly hamper the experience, even if I personally do not have issues with them.
@ whilst there are 4 factions, one of them has the ability to practically skip the entire game if the play desires.
