The first half of NV's main quest is about as good as the first bit of FO3's main quest, but I felt like the second half of NV was superior to the later bit of FO3. But yeah, bland / delayable main quests seem pretty par for the course when it comes to Bethsoft games.

I don't remember it adjusting my playstyle much. It's not difficult to feed yourself until you get to the point where you have infinite money, and then it's trivial to feed yourself. It made me care a bit more about food (and made me buy Brahmin Wellington and purified water because I was too rich to dirty myself with lesser things), but that was it.

I find that very unlikely. However, I believe both had their atmospheric music done by Jeremy Soule, and his compositions are all broadly similar.
