Is there a way to always use VATS in Fallout 3? If I hit "V", it goes to the VATS system and then when the turn is over, it goes back to real time combat.
You mean to have all combat always be resolved via VATS? No, not really. Keep in mind that while VATS is active, your incoming damage is reduced by 90%, and your attacks have a 15% higher chance to be critical strikes. The downside to this is that your weapons will degrade at 400% of their normal rate in VATS. Don't think of VATS as a turn, but rather as a means of expending a resource (AP), to do more damage in less time while being somewhat more strategic.
