What happens in New Vegas stays in 2006

After years of hearing my friends share tales of their adventures in the Fallout universe I became increasingly jealous of their ability to immerse themselves in the game.

I felt more like I was floating around rather than walking on the ground. And I absolutely hate the gunplay. I'm sure it's because I've been trained on shooters but the V.A.T.S. system infuriates me.
