The original Fallout games consumed many a gamer with their isometric view and RPG style gameplay. Of course, much has changed in the world of videogames since the 90s and Bethesda has obviously had to ditch the isometric camera for their trademark first person RPG view. Bethesda certainly haven't forgotten where the series came from though as Pete Hines, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing at Bethesda, told TVG:
"The original Fallout games are primarily what we're trying to replicate as much as we can, and we're trying to bring as much of that as possible into Fallout 3 to make it a true Fallout game. The kinds of things we've focused on are the tone, theme, settings, characters, story, dialogue and the kind of humour they had; things like that."
