So I just finished this game the other day. I felt a little underwhelmed at the end, it didn't seem "epic" enough. I was hoping for an ending like Mass Effect. I think the problem is that the game is Too big. The main story really takes a back seat compared to all of the side quests and locations. That said, I still found this to be one of the best games I've ever played. I've never had the such a sense of freedom in a game since The Ocarina of Time (which is nothing (size-wize) compared to Fallout 3) I'm not exactly looking forward to New Vegas just yet, I need some time off from this type of game.
