A Fallout: New Vegas player has accomplished the incredible feat of earning every achievement in the game. While Fallout: New Vegas lets players play the game however they want, it’s unlikely that Obsidian would have anticipated such a thing when the game originally launched.
Even though Fallout: New Vegas was released back in 2010, gamers are still finding fun new ways to play Obsidian’s role-playing game. One Fallout: New Vegas player reached max level without even leaving Goodsprings, which just goes to show how creative players can succeed within self-imposed constraints. The role-playing elements of Fallout: New Vegas are still the strongest of any role-playing game ever released, and many games released to date have been influenced by Obisdian. Because of this, the potential for ideas on how to play the game is basically limitless, and Fallout: New Vegas provides the perfect sandbox for players.
This achievement was accomplished by YouTuber ItsJabo, who accomplished the feat during a live stream. Fallout: New Vegas has a total of 75 achievements in the base game and DLC, which is no mean feat. Some of these achievements, especially the casino-based ones, are entirely dependent on luck, so this is an additional factor players must consider when playing such games. However, ItsJabo ended up completing the goal in 11 hours and 4 minutes, which is definitely faster than many expected. It should be noted that ItsJabo is also a speedrunner in many Fallout: New Vegas categories, so he probably knows the nuances of the game better than most.
This isn’t the first time ItsJabo has attempted something like this. Just recently, the YouTuber managed to earn all the achievements in Fallout 4 at once, so this has become a recurring theme for him. Unfortunately, he hasn’t revealed his future plans yet, so it’s unknown if he has plans to do similar videos for Fallout 3 and Fallout 76. ItsJabo has also been a popular Fallout 3 player in the past, so the possibility isn’t ruled out this time around.
Fans online continue to beg to allow Obsidian to return to the Fallout franchise in some capacity. It was recently revealed that Obsidian veterans would love the Fallout : New Vegas remake, so the developer’s public stance seems clear. Currently, Bethesda is busy with Stars, and The Elder Scrolls 6 will likely be prioritized after that. With current development timelines, Fallout 5 likely won’t arrive until at least 2030, so allowing Obsidian to make a Fallout game in the meantime would be the perfect way to keep the franchise out in the public eye at the same time.
Fallout: New Vegas is now available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
