Fallout 3 and New Vegas DLC Ranked by Fans


We recently asked you to rank Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas DLC from the best one to worst, and you did it (again)! This "social experiment" was not as big as the last one, when we asked you a bunch of silly questions, about what would you do If Fallout Was Real. Instead, this time we focused on a simple DLC rank, from the best to the worst, and here, you will find the results from our social media pages; Facebook, Google+ and YouTube Channel. Vault-Tec inc. wishes to thank all the Fallout fans involved in our studies! You make us stronger and better prepared for the future.


It is never too late to comment your favorite Fallout 3 and New Vegas DLC on Facebook and Google+ posts, or comment on Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas rank DLC videos on our YouTube Channel.

I will not bother you with the processing of collected data about ranking the DLC. All you need to know is that the final results are combined, from all the comments from our social media pages involved in this project.

The Results for Fallout 3 DLC



It was somehow a lot easier for you to rank Fallout 3 DLC then New Vegas, but I think we got such clear results simply because of one more DLC then New Vegas have. Broken Steel DLC was way before other Fallout 3 DLC, and not to mention that it didn't get below 3rd position. I guess we all respect the fact that free roam after you finish the game is the most important thing in Fallout universe.

Without any further rambling, here are the results of Ranked Fallout 3 DLC:
  1. BROKEN STEEL DLC
  2. THE PITT DLC
  3. OPERATION ANCHORAGE DLC
  4. POINT LOOKOUT DLC
  5. MOTHERSHIP ZETA DLC
The fact that Mothership Zeta DLC was way beyond other Fallout 3 DLC is only telling us that we don't prefer Aliens in such form as it is DLC, but rather as easter eggs, like in other Fallout games. I believe the only reason Mothership Zeta DLC got a few points was the gear.

The Results for Fallout: New Vegas DLC



As mentioned above, we got some slight problems while ranking Fallout: New Vegas DLC from your comments. Nothing to worry about though. It was just Dead Money and Old World Blues DLC since they both shared the exact same number of ranking points. Let's check the results first, and I will explain the whole thing below;
  1. LONESOME ROAD DLC
  2. DEAD MONEY DLC
  3. OLD WORLD BLUES DLC
  4. HONEST HEARTS DLC
As you can see, the Lonesome Road DLC is ranked the best Fallout: New Vegas DLC, but despite the fact that it was way above all the other Fallout: New Vegas DLC, it had a few low-position ranking comments.

To get back to Dead Money and Old World Blues DLC; I had to make a decision to put Dead Money before Old World Blues simply because Dead Money have better higher-position ranking comments than Old World Blues. I didn't make that decision based on my personal favorite.

Despite the fact that Honest Hearts is the lowest ranked Fallout: New Vegas DLC, it was just a few points behind Dead Money and Old World Blues DLC. I think, that in the end, a good story count, no matter what.

Thank you again, for participating in another Vault-Tec inc. "social media experiment"! I hope you enjoyed as much as I did creating it.
