Fallout NV Questions **SPOILERS**

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Please do NOT read this thread if you haven't finished the game or do not want to know about ending sequences...


So apparently I made a wrong turn at Albuquerque. I was with Caesar for so long by the end of the game that I didn't want to go against him. I had Yes-Man all lined up at the Lucky 38, but any time I went to him, I'd gain Legion Infamy, and lose 2 of my 4 quests. I didn't want to do that so I went to fight for Caesar at the Hoover Dam.

Lo and behold, the ending sequence video depicted me as an awful person. (When the narrator said "courier" I swear I could hear him spitting). And Caesar was awful, enslaving this group and that.

I like the Boomers, and the people of Goodsprings, Novac, others, but I just ended up working for Caesar throughout. I had to kill all the Brotherhood, because of a glitch in the game, where I returned to their bunker and instead of meeting me with congrats for taking out the guy settling on their land, they started shooting at me.

Anyway, I guess I'll play a second time. And my question is, who is good? I get the feeling Prim, Novac, Goodsprings (almost all the towns full of settlers) are basically good. And I get the feeling that Mr. House is bad(?) Caesar is obviously awful. But the NCR? The Kings? Who should I work for in order to spread some happiness throughout NV?

Independent (Yes Man) and NCR are good. I'm not sure about House.

Yeah, the game has too many opposing faction ideals to really make much headway against itself.

There is no 'best ending'. All of them end with oppression or hatred in some manner, but definitely the NCR and Mr House endings are generally the best for the wasteland. If you side with the NCR, they kind push in and take over, in a sort of slightly misguided benevolent-dictatorship kinda way with a dash of racist paranoia thrown in.

If House wins he kinda just squeezes everyone for money, and while Vegas sort of prospers, nothing actually gets done and very little improves.

The Yes Man ending is actually rather silly; pretty much the end of House, plus the collapse of Ceasar's Legion and the NCR pulling out leaves Vegas in shambles, and it's pretty much anarchy.

Just do what I did, Save the game before siding with any faction (like seriously siding) finish the game with a faction, view ending, collect achievement, reload save, choose different faction.

Rinse

Repeat

Mr. House and The NCR have the best endings for the player. Mr. House has the best ending as far as New Vegas is concerned but its at the expense of the other factions. NCR has the best ending as far as karma is concerned and depending on how you handle certain factions only Caesar's legion will be effected by the ending.
