I beat it and all the dlcs
I have to say, the first dlc was somehow the best one. Dead Money was bad. Old World Blues was bad. Lonesome Road was rushed and cringe. The Base game was fantastic though. Loved the looting and shooting. The survival was tedios though, especially having to drink.
Speech, Barter and Lockpicking are OP. Energy weapons are obviously lacking compared to normal weapons, so there is a clear bias.
And tying carry weight to strengh is questionable as carry weight is the single most important metric in the game.
I have to say that the economy in the game was quite good. I never became too rich. Only at the last dlc, where I was able to sell expensive weapons, I managed to get a lot of money.
It really became one of my all time favourite games and everyone should play it. The installation process is a bit tricky though, you have to carefully read it here: https://vivanewvegas.github.io/
