And, what, that never happened in FO3?
If we're comparing bugs, I certainly crashed more in 3 than NV. And I was playing the fully patched, GotY edition.
Actually, it didn't. Nor did I get stuck inside terrain. Nor did the climax of the second mission sequence you encounter spawn enemies that could not be interacted with and require a restart. Comparing the console versions NV was definitely shipped with more problems.
I'd actually feel better if NV just outright crashed like FO3 did a few times instead of playing on in a seriously glitched fashion.
I'm not hating on Obsidian, I've played games from companies that suck far worse; UFO Extraterrestrials in the version Matrix Games was bandying about wasn't even properly spellchecked and SP:WaW has a persistent bug that renders artillery and airstrikes unusable. I just think their reputation is deserved.
