Who did you side with in Fallout New Vegas
NCR for most of the game and then for some reason I can't work out they turned against me. So then I went and did Yes Man's missions and SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content.
NCR, then I reverted to an earlier save so I can continue doing other stuff. I'm currently on another playthrough with Hardcore Mode on and I'm not quite sure who to side with just yet. I'm probably gonna download some mod that allows me to be in "Stealth Boy Mode" as long as I'm crouching and stuff, so I can breeze through the ending.
It was a tough choice between Mr. House and Myself, but I chose to playthrough the first time siding with myself, it's what House would have done in my shoes. It was tough killing House, though, I liked him so much.
The third time I played through I sided with the Legion.
I didn't even finish my playthrough with the NCR. The NCR sucks.
No choice for "independent?"
I wanted to go NCR, but a bug forced me to go independent:
When I completed "You'll Know it When it Happens," the NCR quest trail just stopped. Some of the NPC's continued to act as if the ending of that quest had not occurred yet. After some web searching I discovered that any hope of finishing the NCR quests was gone, apparently because of something unrelated I had done about 8 hours prior. I still had an old save, and could have gone back to it, but I would have lost the last 8 hours of work when I was already pretty close to the end. F that.
Someday I plan to go back, restart (not in HC mode this time) and side with Mr. House. I still feel guilty for killing him.
I made a Character for each faction. For the best to side with is the NCR because they give a lot of support to you when you increase you reputation with them you have an NCR Ranger talk to you and gives you a 2-way radio that you can use to call for a solider , ranger or a supply drop which contains ammo, and sometimes medical supplies.
Yes Man DOSE NOT give you anything in the way of helping you in the world so keep that in mind but he is a rather funny robot unlike the other secureritrons.
Mr House Does give you caps for retrieving the "platinum chip" 2000 caps to be exact and he does offer you 2000 caps for every snow globe you bring to him. 7 in total.
Now finally Ceaser's Legion. The legion are not the most friendly people around new Vegas but get on there good side and they can be extremely helpful.
Get your Reputation high enough and you will be given a Quest. Follow the maker to around cottonwood cove and you should find 7 or 8 legion drop boxes on the side of the hill. look inside them to find supplies and legion money which is a way of given you caps becasue if you take you pockets of legion 'cash' to the casinos you can exchange them for chips them exchange the chips for caps
Hope this helps.
I went with Yes Man, but I do have a save from right before I killed Mr. House, so I plan to go back and finish it siding with Mr. House and the NCR, siding with the Legion is not an option as I have been vilified with them long before my save I plan to go back to.
Yes Man, although I kept waiting for him to screw me over. After all, he WAS Benny's securitron, and Benny is slick as hell. (I loved executing him in front of Caesar after he tried to have me killed again, then screwing Caesar almost immediately afterwards... it's so much fun to be a bastard in Fallout)
Nearing the end of my first playthrough siding with the NCR, I have a save from my arrival at the strip and intendto do three moreplaythroughs siding with each faction probably yes man next.
As I think Jeff said in the QL I find it very frustrating that the game forces you to pick sides relatively early on rather than allowing you to string the different factions along.
