Since today is the 12th Anniversary of Fallout New Vegas, I figured why not look back on how people perceived FONV throughout the years. In fact, I made this picture to quickly summarize it all up! NOTE: This probably isn't fully accurate, but it does give the gist of how people perceived New Vegas, and yes I was one of those people who had these kind of thoughts! I mean what do you expect? I'm a New Generation Fallout Fan after all, thankfully I've done a complete 180° since then around the 2017-2018 period. From being called a buggy mess and overlooked, to being considered a top contender of being the best Fallout game in the series! If this isn't a perfect example of being vindicated by history, then I don't know what is. So I guess to wrap things up, this question goes out to my fellow New Generation Fallout Fans. When did your perception(no pun intended) start to change for Fallout New Vegas? Personally for me, the process was a slow gradual shift. My disappointment with Fallout 4 after completing it fully was the starting point, and then what broke the camel's back for me was the whole 76 debacle. That's when I started to reflect and see Bethesda's mediocrity, and their downward spiral of absolute watering down of RPG Mechanics and so forth, compared to the greatness that is FONV! Also, FO1 and FO2 played a huge factor too for changing my mind on FONV, as I've previously have mentioned on here.
