Skyrim is "a lot More Like Fallout 3," Than Oblivion

It's been over five years since Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion first released, and the role-playing game genre has evolved and changed over the course of the half-decade drastically. As a result, Bethesda’s Todd Howard has revealed that Skyrim will take more inspiration from their other RPG powerhouse, the more contemporary Fallout 3, rather than from the aging Oblivion.

How bout you guys read the article...

"[Skyrim]’s a lot more like Fallout 3, where as you level up you are going to see harder things, but the easier things stay around as well. You’ll still run into the weaker stuff and you’ll just decimate it."

BigWoopMagazine2454d ago

And that, I'm actually a fan of. I found in Oblivion it actually got harder as I leveled up, and I had no sense of feeling more powerful as I went - unless I paid very close attention to the incredibly strange leveling system, where I benefited more by making the lesser used skills my core skills, and tracked my skill increases very carefully to control how fast I leveled up. That was such a pain in the ass compared to fallout's system.

Thank god!!! I don't want rabbits and mice leveling up. I want them running in fear when they see me gut a dragon.

I love Oblivion and Fallout 3/NV, it's a win-win for me. I preferred NV to fallout 3 though.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If devs went by that saying, nothing would ever progress that way. Graphics wouldnt improve, there would be little to no innovation, stories would be predictable and full of clichés and overused environments and settings, and we would probably get rushed sequel games every year in an annual installments.

That has been happening quite a lot...

So, radiation poisoning and Dalmatian sized roaches?

BrightFalls762455d ago

I'm excited by this news since Fallout 3 was one of my top games this generation. I hated Oblivion:)

zeddy2455d ago

depends on which you played first. loved oblivion hated fallout 3. plus oblivion had tons more content.

vickers5002454d ago

I played Oblivion first, and didn't like it at all. Then after my friend (who hates Oblivion)kept nagging me to get Fallout 3, I finally caved and bought it and absolutely loved it.

I'm still getting Skyrim because it looks a lot more FO3-esque, but actually hearing that it is similar to Fallout makes me want it even more.

"A lot more like?"

wtf? That's a lot more unlike English.

JimboG2455d ago

That's not a bad thing.

news4geeks2455d ago

agreed, fallout 3 was way better oblivion.
