Four Fat Chicks: "Bethesda Game Studios has developed some of the most successful RPGs in the gaming industry. The Elder Scrolls series, consisting of Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind and Oblivion came out over a period of nearly fifteen years and were set in scattered locations within a unified game world. If Bethesda can do anything, it's create variations on a theme. When they announced that they had purchased the rights to the venerable Fallout series I knew that, regardless of how they handled the mechanics of the game, they would respect Fallout's storied lore and build off that. What I didn't expect was how well they would do it. After all, the prior release, Oblivion, though a blockbuster in terms of sales, was in the end a compromised, albeit complicated entertainment. What is obvious in hindsight is that Oblivion was the first, if not completely successful, step toward a new level of gaming development at Bethesda. What the studio attempted in Oblivion, they executed in Fallout 3. Where they missed the bull's eye in Oblivion, they hit it in Fallout 3."
