A little while back, I released a mod for Fallout: New Vegas.  I made a few errors and omissions in the process. I think I've addressed the majority of them.  Below is the list of new changes (vs. the initial release).  As before, the mod can be downloaded here:

NV was the best game of 2011.

Scratch that, it came out in 2010. Just goes to show how bad 2011 was for gaming.

F:NV was the best game of 2010.

F:NV with the DLC was the best game of 2011.

I only wish I had the PC version so I could play this mod...

F3:NV was OK, a solid 6/10 effort.

The best game of 2010 was Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Not far behind you'd find BF:BC2.

Oh and the best game of 2011 was The Witcher 2.

Hi, i've got the mod installed and at the end of my load order, but the new level cap of cap doesnt seem to be working.

Bishop said...

the level cap of 35 i mean.

Amnesia - boring dark chambers & pseudo-horror ambient sound.
BF: BC2 - one more FPS from dice conveyor.
Witcher 2 - GOTY? u'r joking? I droped this film in lees then hower.

Bishop said...

Also, the pre-order items in chets store disappear after a short period of time. Since caps are more difficult to aquire now they are removed before you can afford them.
Really am enjoying this play through with your mod, hoping you keep updating it.

I'd argue Deus Ex: HR is my personal RPG GOTY/GOTY for 2011. But Skyrim isn't far from being an also good choice, and good game.

I was impressed by strides and think it brings BGS in the right track after Morro/Obliv/FO3 although a ton of improvement is still needed in RPG mechanics and writing(I won't take off points for simple quests/barely any consequences because TES games have been structured like that since Arena. It seems BGS has split Fallout to be the more "in-depth" IP to differentiate both franchises mechanics. No surprise since virtually all RPGs are influenced by Black Isle works. And it does help FO stand out.)

So in a way I don't have a GOTY. Enjoyed both, but Deus Ex gets brownie points. As for Witcher 2, never was impressed by the games ala Mass Effect/2 as their barely RPGs but nonetheless enjoyable.

FYI: The original Logan's Run Book was actually age 21. They made it 30 for the movie. So you could make it 21 and still have it be the proper reference (as well as fitting your new balance)
