I'm going to choose the same as I did for Fallout 3: 
Small Guns 
Repair 
Lockpick 
These work best for me. What about YOU?

Speech, repair, and lockpick. I love being to talk my way out of shit; it makes me feel real slick.

Man, I haven't played Fallout in a while. Definitely small guns and speech. Maybe science for the third one. I dunno. Lockpick and repair are really useful, but I loves me some science.  
 
Edit: Is science even one of them? I just remember there being one for hacking computers.

Science,repair and medicine

#5 Posted by Sackmanjones (4609 posts) -
@MistaSparkle:  Small guns and repair for sure. However, Im stuck between medicine and lockpicking for my third

Small Arms
Lockpicking 
Stealth
 
I'll concentrate on those three and science and repair

#8 Posted by Gooddoggy (409 posts) -

Small guns and speech, then either lockpick or repair. 

#9 Posted by Makzin (7 posts) -

Lockpick Science and Speech  served me well in the last one, should do the same in Vegas.
(might drop lockpick if there's a skill that helps you in the casinos)

Gambling
Small Arms
Speech
 
With a super-high luck stat.

#12 Posted by Makzin (7 posts) -
@NekuSakuraba:  I mean a new secondary stat IF they put one in. (gonna put  as much into luck as I can afford to already), plan on getting the "get banned from all Casinos" achievement in my first playthrough.

Why would they put one in? Isn't luck essentially the skill that would help?
#14 Posted by Makzin (7 posts) -
@NekuSakuraba:  Dunno, it's not impossible though.

Can't have it any other way ;)
#24 Posted by lclay (382 posts) -

Clearly small guns and repair and then probably speech because I like talking my way out of things when I can but maybe lockpick?

#25 Posted by Omelet_Pants (163 posts) -

Lockpick
Small Guns
Big Cawk

This.

Small guns, science, lockpicking.

#29 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

I just know I will spend at least an hour gawping at the screen undecided which 3 to choose. Leaning towards Lockpick, Science and Speech, but if it's anything like Fallout 3, having both Lockpick and Science can be a waste, so might switch one out for Repair, Sneak or one of the combat skills. Decisions.

#30 Posted by Agent47 (1894 posts) -

You guys do know that small guns is no longer a skill right?They ditched it in favor of just having a guns category ,and energy weapons category.It's the only skill that got kicked out, though now they have survival.So I am thinking survival, speech, and sneak.I like to get the drop on my enemies.

#31 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

small guns 
medicine  
speech

#32 Posted by Redbullet685 (5980 posts) -

Just like Fallout 3
1st - Lockpick
2nd - Speech
3rd - Small Guns

#33 Posted by adoggz (1952 posts) -

there is only 1 skill I care about tagging and that is addachivement.

#34 Posted by TheFalconProduction (51 posts) -

lockpick, repair, survival.

#35 Posted by Tearhead (2102 posts) -

New Vegas has grouped Small Guns and Big Guns into one Skill simply named Guns. So mine'll be: 

  • Guns
  • Lockpick
  • Repair
#36 Posted by MeatXbeatsXman (238 posts) -

Small guns, repair, and lockpick.

I might do something like this one playthrough, sounds very different than small guns, speach and what ever else I'll usually use.
#40 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

After much thought: 
- Speech
- Lockpick
- Guns

#41 Posted by Darx (2 posts) -

Small Guns
Speech
Science

#42 Posted by RedEyesBlueBunny (1011 posts) -

lockpicks 
speech 
melee weapons

#43 Edited by WilliamRLBaker (4777 posts) -

Guns *its no longer called small guns from what I've read* repair and sneak. I would do lockpick but if its anything like fallout 3 lockpicking isn't that hard in the end and I can just quick save before a lock and then autopick and If I fail and break the lock just quick load and do it over and over again. As well one of the main ways I get caps is by stealing its the easiest way to do it and rarely gives you a big boost in evil affinity and its one of the few ways to get some of the more unique weapons in fallout 3 like the terrible shotgun, and the robotron and string knife...ect I don't expect it to be much different in vegas.

#44 Posted by Lilarcor (206 posts) -

No love for Energy Weapons among the crew here? Shame. i'm going to tag Speech, Energy Weapons, and probably Science. I might switch out the last one for Medicine or Repair though, I'll have to think about it.

#45 Posted by WalkerTR77 (1348 posts) -

Speech, small guns and medicine.

#46 Edited by samcotts (2258 posts) -
@Lilarcor: I'm hoping Tag! will once again be a perk, which I will choose Energy Weapons for. Like all previous Fallout's, you probably won't come across any decent energy weapons until quite a few hours in.
#47 Posted by Lilarcor (206 posts) -
@samcotts:  Yeah, that's definitely been a problem in the past games. But according to the developers, you'll be able to find useful weapons in all 3 categories throughout every point in the game. Hopefully they're right about that but I guess we'll see.
#48 Posted by melcene (3056 posts) -

Stealth for sure.... 
 
Speech and Repair maybe 
 
or Small Guns and Repair

#49 Posted by DaemonBlack (342 posts) -

Firearms
Survival
Speech
 
I'm going with survival cause I'm doing hardcore right off the bat.

#50 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -
@Lilarcor: I hope that's the case, Energy weapons fucking rock and will definitely be tagged if what you say turns out to be true.
