Did Fallout have difficulty settings? I don't remember it being insanely easy. Plus, there's always the hardcore mode (need to drink water, need to sleep).
Did you never use that mode where you attacked the target zones in slowed down time? I never played FO3, but I played New Vegas. It was still super OP in the latter but, from what I understand, it was nerfed heavily. So I can't imagine how strong it was originally.
New Vegas felt easier to me than the original, IIRC, but the two sort of blend together in my mind (and I didn't much care for NV).
V.A.T.S. is in both, yes. I remember it being basically requisite for normal-to-tough encounters; not overpowered, but rather necessary for survival. And also, insanely fun.
