I still enjoy the exploration aspects of the game and the ability to play around with different mods.
I played 1&2 first and found 3 impossible to enjoy. Got to Megaton, talked to a couple of people, then immediately uninstalled it.
Oh, and I'm pretty sure that what PX means by "claustrophobic" is that 1&2 were played from an isometric, top-down perspective (the way CRPGs are meant to be played) and being pigeon-holed into playing first- or third-person can have just such an effect. Isometric rules, because it's like playing god.
