Fallout New Vegas: Mods for the first playthrough

Post by susika31 »

I know most people dislike modding a classic like New Vegas for the first playthrough. But some new players become underwhelmed with the poor gunplay and overall gameplay mechanics. These mods are improvements to the gameplay side of NV. Personally, I like the looks of the game. Sure, its visuals are really poor considering today's standards, but for me, it's part of the charm. I believe that if you overhaul the gameplay mechanics while still keeping the old school charm of the game, you could experience New Vegas in its full glory. So, here are the mods I recommend.
kNVSE Animation Plugin: https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/71336

Fallout New Vegas is a game I believe can only improve with the use of mods.

Frankly, I believe the game is a masterpiece of storytelling and a showcase of how to make a great RPG. But the gameplay? Completely outdated. I can see why a newcomer might turn the game down just because of how stiff everything feels.

That's why I always hear the argument of "atleast Fallout 4 is fun to play", because yeah, it has better gunplay. But with mods you can truly make New Vegas a not only memorable and brainy story, but you can also make it a blast to play.
