Expectations For The Next Fallout Game

Bethesda Softworks is one of the few big game developers that still turn out electronic games that appeal to the more refined electronic RPG enthusiast. I’m referring to the kind of gamer that prefers looking at a spread of values that he or she can gleefully manipulate to get a desired result (which includes the sliders that need to be messed with to get the character’s look he prefers), while at the same time getting immersed in a richly-designed world that will keep you out of the loop of our consensual reality for weeks on end. (Bethesda Game Studios, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I agree with everything but the AO rating. Do we really need gratuitous amounts of sex for it to be good? I don't see how the next Fallout could be violent enough for an AO rating, so the only other option is explicit sex acts.

No chance of an AO rating.. Bethesda likes making money, put an AO rating on it and every B&M store won't sell it.

next game will be an M but people will still bitch about. Fallout is an atomic inspired game set to a world incased in lead. love every second when i play fallout 3 will still play today but every time i start it, it freezes. Fallout New Vegas good adaptions like hardcore mode and mods for guns, food crafting, power cell reuse. the engine has to change its good but next fallout has to use a new engine its true graphics don't matter but the engine freezes way too much. do not add vehicles.

First and foremost, a completely redesigned and aesthetically refined engine built from the ground up for next generation hardware, and with A LOT less bugs. Then again, it IS Bethesda...and hoping for something like that is like hoping Santa Claus is real - in other words, never gonna happen and you're only going to be met with the same disappointing result every time you start to think, "Well, maybe it's possible...". And even if or when Bethesda does decide its time to revamp or redesign, you won't find total satisfaction on both ends of the spectrum; only one or the other.

That's why, as much as I loved Fallout 3 and NV, I put my money into Brian Fargo's Wasteland 2. B/c I believe as a fan of the original Fallout titles, that I will find a more faithful representation in W2, than in anything else since Fallout 1 & 2.

I hope they keep the iron sights system and get some more debugging out of the game before release. Also, make it more open world like Fallout 3 compared to NV. NV forces you to go south instead of going to wherever you want because of high level enemy barrier.

Bethesda only published New Vegas, it was Obsidian that designed it. Yes, there were a lot of bugs but I felt the game was still great.

With Bethesda taking the development on the next one, I'm excited to see what kind of things they've learned from Obsidian. Also, I'm going to be insanely excited for the game if it does in fact take place in the Commonwealth.
