I could be factually wrong but that's just how the 2 games seemed to me when I was playing them.

My thoughts exactly. FO:NV open ares felt cramped and Vegas itself was sort of a mish-mash to navigate. I felt constant pressure to walk a neutral tightrope and not get funneled into one particular faction prematurely. FO3 seemed to have way more area to explore and stuff to find. Loved the unexpected vignettes of story I'd find hidden away. Some were very sad. Imagination is much more powerful than having everything spelled out for you. The subway/metro system was a creep-fest for me to explore. Loved it.
