Far Cry 3 Reddit Answers Many Burning Questions, Including if Their Game is ‘Like Skyrim With Guns’

A few people on the Far Cry 3 development team held an IAmA on Reddit today, which has now ended. After wading through what seemed like a never ending amount of comments, we’ve compiled some of the more interesting tidbits below, in a question and answer format.

Pretty sure Fallout 3/New Vegas was Skyrim with guns before Skyrim was even Skyrim.

I agree.

Someone was telling me that Farcry 3 redefines shooters and I asked him how. He replied by telling me it combined Skyrim with the FPS genre, which lead to me asking him how that was different than Fallout... he never had an answer for me.

Except that Fallout was never a shooter. Just because it has a gun and is in first person, doesn't automatically mean its a FPS, even if the term fits.

The shooting mechanics are different. Fallout plays like an RPG first with the shooting mechanics secondary. It's not part of the FPS genre.

Far Cry 3 is on the other hand, the way it feels is different. The shooting mechanics feel much more like a FPS and it's focus is mostly around that.

I get really bored of FPS games, but Far Cry 3 really adds to it.

Are you telling me you can disappear and re-appear at the same time?!?

i find it more like an FPS version of Assassins Creed. In my opinion its nothing like skyrim apart from it being a sandbox game....

I agree with you on that one.This doesnt really relate to Skyrim at all besides the sanbox element.It feels alot like AC but a way more refined version where the mechanics of the game are much smoother.This game is just to dam fun to put down so I must be on my way to kill a rare bullshark that hunts on humans.Pick the game up its worth your while.

Seems like the guy who said that quote obviously just doesn't know what he's talking about or has any idea that they are two different types of games. Other than the game being open world with a (very small) item inventory system, they have nothing in common.

Both are good games in their own right.

Actually, Far Cry 3 reminds me more of Crysis 1. It actually plays a hell of a lot more similar than Skyrim.
