Bethesda really needs to take stock of the competition if it wants to retain its RPG crown.
So an open world rpg coming out in 2015/16 should look better and play better than an open world rpg that came out in 2007 wow thanks
What came out in 2007?
My bad I was referring to fallout 3 don't know why I said 07 instead of 08 maybe because everywhere I look someone is saying it's been 7years 7 has been drilled into my mind lol
Just making fun off all the "What improvements we want in Fallout 4" lists that have things like better graphics and improved animations since they're just natural improvements a game will have when it's released 7-8years after the last it's like saying in 10years I hope I'm older
All good...but aren't they comparing Fallout 4 to Witcher 3? I think you got Fallout 3 mixed up too.
Fallout 4 doesn’t need to learn anything from anyone. It’s frickin Fallout.
Amen brother, fallout wrote the manual.
exactly. Two different developers and two different type of game. ALSO people are forgetting that this developer also made FALLOUT3,OBLIVION AND FREAKING SKYRIM! lol
I don't think the author has ever played a Fallout game...
Just please don't have any glitches or bugs. I don't want to go through fallout 3 or new Vegas all over again. Or even skyrim I hope bethesda learns from its own past games not from witcher 3.
Hopefully it's not as bad, but we know there's gonna be bugs.
You cant even compare the Witcher to Fallout. Two completly different games. I hope Fallout 4 does so well so that critics shove them words up their mouth, criticizing a game over its Graphics? Is this what this gen is all about?
Witcher 3 is a great game, no doubt, but I don't think Bethesda has to learn from anyone because they have been making amazing RPGs for a long time themselves.
Lol, don't need to learn from anyone? EVERYONE has something to learn from the achievements and failures of others. We'd still be rubbing sticks together and painting hunting scenes in caves if we didn't learn from others, regarless of who we are or what we achieved.
I didn't mean LITERALLY you dimwit. What I was saying is that Bethesda has been making open-world RPGs for such a long time that they don't need to look for inspiration. I'm not talking about the technological side of making games which I am sure all devs learn and improve upon each other's works.
The comparisons to Witcher 3 are ridiculous. Fallout is a world where you can interact with virtually any object you see. Where you can walk up to a table and pickup any object on it. Where every NPC can be killed thus effecting the story and side quests. It's a level of interactivity that Witcher 3 doesn't even attempt. All the Witcher seems to interact with are chests, plants and candles. The Witcher 3 is a great game and is certainly huge and pretty. But until I get a quest that allows me to optionally nuke a city (that I live in and keep all my stuff) off the face of the earth and walk through the rubble it's no Fallout.
1 - You can walk up to tables and pick up stuff in the Witcher (BIG DEAL, doesn't make any game good) - in fact, when you add witcher senses and candle interaction, the Northern Realms are more interactive than the Wasteland... 2 - Most quests in the Witcher will require you to make decisions that will affect who lives and who dies, sometimes on the scale of entire villages. Not to mention that most of these decisions aren't black and white - good or evil - but shades of black, where EVERY decision will end in death and horror. 3 - Actually play both games before mindlessly defending one.
I have played both games. And no I cannot go up to a table in the Witcher 3 and pick up a fork for the hell of it and spin it around and generally admire the work put into it. And no I can't walk into an Inn and kill someone I was supposed to turn a quest into for the hell of it. So try to remember the games you say you play. It's called immersion Larry. Complete freedom of choice. It's kinda nice but to each his own.
Chill out, Larry! He wasn't having a go at the Witcher 3.
@ Dan_scruggs Lol, spinning forks and ruining questlines by killing npcs... that does sound terrific. :) @ EasyC He actually is/was... Kinda... I guess I kind of did get carried away! That witcher... it just got to me! Love it so much it's making me want to argue about it on the internets
The Sims will be a better game for you.You can pick up stuffs and have sex with them all you want.Fallout is a great series but TW3 nailed almost everything about open world games.Btw,side quests in TW3 are awesome.Hell,you can even say Fallout has better graphics than TW3...i don't care but not side quests.
Bethesda needs better writers, then they'd be golden. They shoulda ransacked Obsidian's staff when they were laying people off : p
I really hate these "what games must do like other games to be a great game"..... Its Bethesda we're talking about here, the worst thing we can fear from them is bugs and glitchs.......which is something alot of devs seem to have picked up from Bethesda this gen lol.
Just stop putting The Witcher 3 everywhere, we are talking about Bethesda and Fallout here. Fallout it's a huge franchise, way bigger and better than any The Witcher game.
I was going to wait to get this game, but since Target has a sale right now for Witcher 3 at $41.99 for xbox one and PS4. Then I will definitely pick it up. you can also go to Walmart or Best buy and demand to price match, they will most likely do it.
How about a non-glitchy launch?
The sooner we all accept that The Witcher gonna Witcher, and Fallout gonna Fallout, the better for all of us. Every single part of life always has room for improvement, but Bethesda needs to improve on what they've done previously. This process happens regardless of whether or not The Witcher exists. The one thing I am not looking forward to, leading up to Fallout's release, is all the comparisons.
