Can Bethesda Make Fallout 4 The Best Game Of The Next Generation?

Fallout 3 stands as one of the greatest games of the generation and Bethesda one of its leading developers. Fallout 4 is the most anticipated game that hasn't been announced. If it was real, could it be even better than 3?

Hopefully they can get the PS4 version of the game right since they had so much trouble with PS3 versions of their games.

It is already the best game of next gen! :)

Can't wait to see how many new ways Bethesda will come up to rape the already established lore of Interplay AND their own games. I mean, they were pretty successful regarding that with Fallout 3 and Mothership Zeta.

I don't think a whole lot of people give 2 shits about Fallout's 'established lore'. It's a reboot of the series, a series that not a lot people played as far as the originals.

"It's a reboot of the series"

No. It really, really is not.

From Wikia wiki;

"Fallout 3 is a post-apocalyptic computer and console role-playing game that has been developed and published by Bethesda Softworks as a sequel to Interplay's Fallout and Fallout 2."

And you really don't have to have too much information to realize that it's a direct sequel since there are many references to the events that took place in first two games along with some returning characters like Harold. Recently released Tomb Raider game is a reboot. F3 is not. It's a funny thing that you're willing to go as far as to claim it being a reboot as an excuse for subpar writing though.

Sounds like someone is a butthurt interplay fan.

*shrug* It happens. It happens every time a story goes from writer A to writer B. And it's not like Fallout 3 did a complete 180 on all of the principal themes of the original setting, as was the case with Mass Effect 3.


@Mr Tretton: actually, among fans (i.e. the non-casuals) the lore of the Fallout games and Elder Scrolls games is one of the absolutely biggest attractions. It's easily in the top three, next to customization and exploration.

"And it's not like Fallout 3 did a complete 180 on all of the principal themes of the original setting."

I think some would consider "Aliens were the ones who fired nukes of America and China against each other" a complete 180.

Absolutely! The fallout games are some of the best games I have played for the current consoles. Loved 3 and New Vegas.

Might I suggest setting the new fallout on the west coast, preferably San Francisco.

NewVegasTroop1741d ago

do you know of the existence of Fallout 1 and Fallout 2? because those take place in California a.k.a the west coast. and its not Fallout "Las Vegas" it's New Vegas :D

XboxFun1741d ago (Edited 1741d ago )

No, I have never played the originals but people have told me those are really good. And some even prefer those over the consoles.

And what are you talking about, I put New Vegas....


Gster1741d ago

Nah man, it's comin to Dublin, up the Dubs! :p

The fallout games are awesome, that's for sure. However, to try and guess if a developer can make the best game of a generation this early would be unwise. Can they make a fantastic game, absolutely. Will they do their level best? Absolutely.

Don't ever make opinions on a game when you only played the newest ones........

It will be an amazing game but best game of next

I still can't believe they won GOTY with Skyrim, Studio of the Year at the VGAs and even Skyrim won Game of the generation on Amazon going head to head with the Last of Us

The comment about The Division and the car door made me smile.... That car door is the most famous on N4G. The seemlessness of the action is so beautiful.

Anyway! Back on subject! I came into Fallout late with starting with New Vegas and I love that game. Not sure if that made me bias but when I tried to play backwards to Fallout 3 it just didn't hit me the same way.

NewVegasTroop1741d ago

I hope Obsidian is given another Fallout game, they make the best stories, but a Bethesda Fallout is also great! Fallout 4 is my most anticipated next gen game, even if there is no news of its existence.
