I'm perplexed by how someone can place ME3, Fallout 3 and Oblivion on remotely the same level as VtM:B and New Vegas. Sure, they all call themselves RPG's and have action combat but the gulf in quest design, writing, characterization and player agency is just enormous.

To me, ME3 is more a choice-your-own-adventure than an RPG and Oblivion a fantasy version of GTA. Fallout 3 comes closer to a "real RPG", and has some genuinely decent quest design in some places, but the writing is just terrible. Who can forget gems like:

"I'm looking for my father. Middle-aged guy. Maybe you've seen him"

NPC: "I fight the Good Fight with my voice"
[Intelligence] So you fight the Good Fight with your voice?"
