Fallout New Vegas Trophy Guide
Fallout: New Vegas is a first-person action-RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world. Players can roam freely across the land, working towards a main quest as well as several side quests, while leveling-up their character and earning bonuses. While not a direct sequel to Fallout 3, the game takes place in the same universe.
The player controls a courier, transporting a "Platinum Chip" across the Mojave desert to New Vegas, when the character is shot and left for dead by a man named Benny. The player-character awakens in a town, now free to seek revenge against Benny, learn the secret behind the Platinum Chip, and choose sides in a coming war for the domination of the Hoover Dam.
Fallout: New Vegas was both a commercial and critical success, with an average score of 87%, praised for its compelling story and interesting characters, but criticized for technical issues.

As far as difficulty goes, Fallout: New Vegas is no different than Fallout 3 or the Elder Scrolls titles. If you've played any of them, then you'll know that this game is more time-consuming than challenging.
Most trophies are either story-related, or dealing a certain amount of damage with certain weapons. Other challenges include playing/winning casino games (which are easy enough by saving and reloading) and a few minor collectibles. Also, the game contains 4 possible endings, but you can made a save point which you can then continuously return to and switch story paths.
Overall, will take about 60-80 hours of your time, but not requiring much in the way of skills.
Since this game has no trophy for difficulty mode, you can go ahead and select Very Easy. However, you must turn on Hardcore mode for the Hardcore trophy. This has no effect on damage, but you will need to eat, sleep, and drink water to survive, as well as a few other "realistic" disadvantages which make the game more challenging.
Also, SAVE OFTEN! This game is very glitchy, and can freeze on you often.
For the most part, you simply need to play through the main quest. Most of the damage-related trophies, as well as location discoveries, will come to you over time. Also, check out the trophy guides in our Links page for side-quest trophies, tips for the casino game trophies, and locations of snowglobes.
As you advance towards the end, make sure you create a save which you can resort back to after completing one of the ending paths. This will prevent you from having to restart the entire game when working towards one of the other three endings.
