    Because of the fact that the intention of the Legion is not to provide a new form of order, but to instill a dictatorship that thrives on oppression and conquest. As well as the fact that, after Caesar dies, there is no intention on what the future will hold, as even if you chose to have the Legion win the second Battle of Hoover Dam, once Caesar died (or if Lucius took temporary control until Legate Lanius would usurp it), the group would deteriorate into splintered factions, with most of them becoming organized Raiders and crude Slavers.

    I've always went with the Legion. Mainly because they are way more badass than the other factions.

    From a purely lore-based perspective:
    I'd support Caesar's Legion except they're a bunch of damn luddites, although I do appreciate the sentiments behind their ludditery.

    It's also for more roleplay-based reasons. Not enough of their nation is presented to me within the game to really side with them over the charismatic words of some bald guy with brain cancer. My character is presumably an NCR citizen, going off of the fact he's a Courier that worked for Mojave Express and has had to carry packages through NCR in the past (as you learn from Lonesome Road), and it's established he's not a Frumentarii (Vulpes would probably recognise you if you were), so really to me all options but the Legion seem to be logical ones, with NCR being the default, somewhat patriotic, decision I (or he) tend to make.

    They weren't a bunch of crazy raiders, the only thing they have going for them is that they are organized.

    The Legion is very frustrating for me. It clearly had a lot of content cut so there was a lot, A LOT, to expand upon with it.

    I'd support Caesar's Legion except it's too underwritten at the moment.

    If only they weren't rapists, murderers and slavers

    They've got the best character designs though (Although I have a soft spot for dusters and trench coats...)

    I'd support Caesar's Legion if they properly represented theocratic classical monarchy and strict social hierarchy instead of the modern western strawman it is.

    I think they were intended to look more (ironically) like a tribe of barbarians steamrolling across the Danube than they were meant to look like Prussia/Imperial Germany, or Sparta.

    I can get over the treatment of women and such but the slavery makes me slaughter them every time.

    I probably would not support Caesar's Legion for any reason. They are just plain evil.

    I wouldnt join them because theres just so little to do, but I think a game set in AZ or some other Legion controlled state would be really cool.
