| @Daz - It's a big problem. A game can have a good story, and even good gameplay, but if there's nothing to do, it isn't a good game (in my opinion). Games are to relieve my boredom. If it can't do that, well, f*ck...|
And I still haven't gotten around to playing Fallout. It's been recommended to me many times. I'll check it out soon, at least before GTA V comes out.
Don't worry man, I know what you are getting at. Despite games being good or not while you play them, they are pretty useless if they only last a week before they are exhausted. (Including getting achievements for them)
So I definately think you would gain from Fallout 3, as first, then move on to New Vegas, there is a lot more replayability in Fallout 3 than NV, but NV has slightly better shooting mechanics and a lot more weapons.
As for replayability, try Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, 2008 sequel to the 2006 game, but holds up very well. If you like cover shooters, this is the best one, there isn't any chest high walls, it is all about taking cover in doorways and culling the terrorists. You can play the terrorist hunt mode alone or in co-op with 3 other people on the mp maps and I still play it to this day, endless fun.
Just Cause 2 was mentioned, the shooting and driving sucked major balls like none other, but the grapple + parachute technique is INSANELY fun, it is very very satisfying flying across the map (which is one of the biggest maps I have ever seen in a free roam game) and there is quite alot to achieve, plenty of structures and bases to destroy for 100%. It will probably keep you busy.
I will have to look at my gaming stack if there any others once I leave work. But defo look into fallout, give it a chance, it has SOOO much content in it. Besides you can always mod the f*ck out of them on pc.
Also forgot to mention Hotline Miami is pretty damn awesome. It has a lot of replayability due to the core gameplay is very satisfying.
