I love playing as a bad karma NCR merc
They're all based though, except Yes Man.
>>
>>603419285
if i was going to choose, the legion.
but i can't justify doing the main story, cause it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for a courier to involve themselves in this conflict.

you basically become house's specforce agent and singlehandedly settle all his issues for him. it doesn't make sense to choose any other faction because you're getting paid by house. but neither does it make sense to even agree to house's jobs either, because you are just a courier. you're not some soldier, merc, or anything like that. you've got some familiarity with wasteland survival and combat just due to the necessity of it for surviving delivering mail, but that doesn't mean you would be capable of everything house asks of you.
>>
>>603424350
This. Also I never level up my skills, use guns, wear armor or kill anyone because the main character is just a courier.
>>
>>603424530
no, i can justify using guns. like i said, you'd have some capability just due to the wasteland's nature necessitating it.
falling into some light mercenary work is a lot different from becoming house's enforcer. getting hired to rough up some street trash is a lot different from singlehandedly assaulting several military installations.

>>603419285
NCR because I like to larp as a power hungry alphabet agent out to gib any "threat" in the name of republic
>>
>>603425243
Because they're faggots. NCR is mostly comprised of shitty soldiers while people gravitate towards Rangers who are cowboy survivalist badasses. If there was some quest to cut the Rangers off from the NCR i'm sure you'd have those same faggots proudly standing by their decision to poison Oliver.
>>
Kicking the NCR out of the mojave is good for the NCR. Their imperialism is leading to a downfall in their ability to survive. They need to get their ass back to Cali to actually take care of their citizenry and stop annexing everything.
>>
>>603425605
The fact that the only defense for ncr, a government, is that they’re not tribals shows how shit their government is. Besides if you were in a room with a killer and a slaver why would you side with either? You have house and yesman to side with yet you side with a pathetic regurgitation of the u.s. army that can’t even sustain itself and needs to leech off the rest of the world?

Retards argue over the wrong thing when it comes to new Vegas. The problem isn't who's in charge. It's about how capitalism isn't working. The only chance at making a truly prosperous wasteland is with Yes man and the followers (who have been described by the writers as being people primarily with ideologies from anarchism, anarchosyndicalism, socialism, and communism. Sure the chaos in the streets will hurt after hoover dam but I'd rather have chaos for a few years then a more stable life than just live under any of the retarded factions. The followers are objectively the right choice.
>>
>>603425243
I've done every faction because I like to roleplay. NCR's better than Legion at least and isn't some Howard Hughes parody trying to send people to space on a gambling income in a world devoid of resources. And I actually like House's background and smarts.

Caesar isn't fascist because he lacks a controlling body of government. He wants that but as he is in New Vegas he's basically leader of a mob of fanatics. House isn't fascist because he wants to let people govern themselves and before you say anything having Robots strong-arm people into doing what you want isn't a form of government, it's more like he's a mob boss too.

Not really. Yes the legion take slaves, but i'm fairly certain everyone who lives in legion territory isn't a slave. The legion is at war and taking slaves helps the war effort in a couple of ways. First it generates capital, secondly it allows Ceasar to replenish his numbers and emotional manipulate the NCR by using child soldiers. They are making money and using the resources they have on hand to win the war against a more advanced force.

Lll the factions are old world. Mr. House included. End of the day NCR actually has good people in it which is a decisive point for me, and who would win without the courier is irrelevant since they all win if you throw in your support.
I like House but he's no clear winner or even obviously better than anyone else, enlightened dictators are interesting, but he also thinks he is going to live forever which is not a solid gameplan. Yes I know you are like his protege, but you still are not House, and you are still mostly a meat agent first and foremost to enforce and enact his will.

They also shit on actual California, so it's like wishful escapism, haha....

Its people who refuse to actually pay attention to the lore or the multiple quests focusing about the NCR's incompetence or corruption because they just do what the quest marker tells them to do so they just see NCR as a default "good guys" because they're fighting the "bad guys."
In all the times I've played NV I can never get myself to go the NCR path because of how fucking dumb and blatantly evil they are, you have to be a complete retard to ignore it and be okay with basically going to every single one of their outposts and wiping their asses or deal with some corrupt person in power so they can control vegas and force taxes on people who live in falling apart shacks who made a living bartering with fucking cans and broken toasters while the NCR doesn't even keep the roads safe after slaughtering or conscript the people who used to keep vegas safe while also bringing in more raiders to terrorize people like the powder gangers while doing nothing about it or killing / sabotaging local businesses because they see them as competition.

The Strip is the richest and most prosperous settlement in the Mojave. If you control the Strip you control the region. A bunch of savages LARPing as Romans and Mongols living in tents aren't a threat, neither are the NCR since you control upgraded securitrons.

A faction/nation/group is still the sum total of its people. The good part of NCR is there entire leadership can be wiped out and they will still keep chugging, and no matter how stupid those leaders are, the people in the frontline still have initiative and can bend rules, act before they get orders, twist the situation to get command to agree with them, etc. etc.
Yeah the NCR is overextending itself, but even if they fuckup, it's not the end or crippling even. At times the NCR has had good leadership, there is a system to handoff rule to new people and leaders, it's not married to anyone in charge at any single moment. That's always been the advantage of a system of government with peaceful/structured methods to get power to new people/groups. Benevolent dictators are sweet and way more effective, but it's imperative they set up proper systems for when they are gone because they are rare and unusual, the next batch of leaders for generations after them are also likely to be retards who can't handle that much power and responsibility.

That's my view on it.

Not him but using robots be a part of territorial defence frees up a lot of people that can band into regional militias, just like you can do with Primm, at worst you'd leave one or two robots to coordinate efforts should that be required
As for the engineers, the heavy lifting has already been done by the NCR, all you need is people to maintain it and that's nowhere near the amount of people needed to bring it back online

>>603428724
That's only true "right now." They'll take a beating and have to reorganize, they won't completely collapse or anything. Just like any other group, what immediately happens in the story is not the end or anything for each faction. I do not care if they aren't going to do things perfectly or are even going to stumble really hard. I prefer a group that has resiliency, something most of the factions are pretty dubious on since they rely on plans that need perfect execution or have many single points of failure.
It's just a different philosophy on what I think are strengths.
NCR has good leaders in the past, they can have good leaders again. They can take a beating and shoot their own foot and still recover and adjust.

NCR because House seemed like a megalomaniac who shouldn't have power, Caesar's boys were cartoonishly cruel because of creative disagreements while writing them and "lmao let's self govern" wasn't something I gave a lot of thought at the time

Yeah, they're definitely an obstacle to be worked around, but there's already more than enough work there that's already done that could catapult humanity forward a few decades at the very least. Hydroponics, advanced auto-docs, the saturnite alloy, the Sierra Madre vending machines, and that's just the start. The needed technology already exists - the only thing that needs to be brought up to speed is the capability to produce these things.

I got sub 100 IQ and House makes me insecure. So I killed him only because he was arrogant. Would do the same to any smartass in real life too.

I chose Legion because I like the idea of fightning, killing and raping enslaved women. The more I kill, the more women I get to rape. Seems like a solid deal.

House's solution to the King's, an ultimately benevolent force in Vegas wanting autonomy, is to send in a robot death squad to slaughter all of them. He's uncompromising in slaughtering the BoS because he personally thinks they're absurd. Putting him in charge of the unstoppable robot army is a bit of a risky decision.

House, Legion and Yes-Man and just variants of "putting all your trust in a single person". Obviously Yes-Man is the best because that person is you. Anyone who picked House or Legion was just admitting a lack of self-confidence.

NCR is the only valid alternative to Yes-Man because it's an institution and not an individual. A flawed institution but at least it's not riding on one guy.

At first NCR because they were everywhere and I empathized with their soldiers. They seemed to have the best chance of holding the wasteland. People largely recognized their authority and legitimacy. I didn't really see the critazisms too much (this was years ago)
After playing through a few times, I think House is the proper choice. Its his town, and if NCR has it they'll mismanage it to the bankruptcy. The legion will basically squander it by destroying it immediately. MC is always an idiot so Yes Man is the most retarded choice. New Vegas is a testament to House's competence. He's not going to take over the world, and space may be a pipe dream, but if any city-states of today indicate the success of NV, then I believe House is the one to do it himself.
>>
>>603419285
During my first run I went with NCR, mostly because I was just a kid playing, on an xbox, with a limited knowledge of the English language.

As I grew older and understood more, I would eventually realise that NCR are the worst possible choice.
So now I usually side with house.

On a side note: I wish you could actually side with autumn in 3.

Everyone narrows down the fact he thinks they’re absurd and forgets the rest about why he said they’re absurd, they pretend to be protectors by stealing any and all tech to “protect people from themselves” but ultimately serve themselves and indulge in a isolationist and technophobic society that hates progress. the fact you feel pity for them after they put a collar on you and slaughtered a charity group because Veronica wanted to leave makes you seem questionable. As for the Kings, that’s if you merge them into NCR, he did it out of fear of rebellion. Which sucks, but there’s more reason behind it than NCR kicking the followers out or the khans after helping them out instead of letting them stay in the empty canyon.

You get a knockdown move from some retiree from the NCR hotel, there is a viper leader with special brass knuckles that can hold you till you get a power-gauntlet. Kiting melee enemies and using strong attacks is usually how I ungabunga, but even rapid punches with power fists from the Gun Runners have decent knockback.
The real issue is just tall/special monsters. Doing melee, I also make use of make shift stimpak, I sell most of my weapons so I can afford even more stimpak. Hell you can even just get drugged up and go swinging if you're in a tight pinch.

By the time you get bloody-mess, human and low level enemies are fodder for a long while ime.

I'm going to share with you men, my secret for a fun time in New Vegas. They key, the true best weapon combo in the game.

Here's what you need.
>All unarmed moves
>Implants, buffs, armor, chems that all favor your unarmed, strength and endurance
>10 S, 10 E, flavor your C, I, A and L according to taste
>Greased Lightning, the Power Fist from BOS store
>Rushing Water

Once you're loaded up, your punches should fire so quickly that the punching animation cannot keep up. You just hold your arm up in an uppercut and mash your forearm in to the enemy until they die. Taking out the Deathclaw Premonitory like this was probably one of my favorite Fallout experiences.

The courier packs are retarded but you might as well pick them up with the rest. You can always just turn off DLC.
Dead Money is divisive but considered a great horror experience. Honest Hearts is kinda fun, I enjoy how Zion looks (seriously it's gorgeous) and it's really just more of the base game. OWB breaks the game in half if you're smart but it's humor is either hilarious or reddit-tier depending on who you ask. Lonesome Road really didn't click for me but a lot of people swear by it's story.
