I was a bit afraid when I saw the name of the thread...
Todd Howard working on the infamous Fallout 4.
You did a fantastic job with oblivion's quests. Like they were the shit. Fuck happened man? How'd you go from that straight into the shit we see in fo3? Its only gotten worse. Now You barely even write quests. Hope you get your shit together for your next big release.
Some Kentuckian fuck.
He was the one taking the picture.
In all honesty, I don't really blame Emil or Todd for how these games turned out. I noticed that the more power Pete had, the more the games felt held back. It's like he is sucking the power out of Bethesda for his own superhuman powers.
I have stated before, I think Petey boy has more power within Bethesda then he lets on. For instance a lot of the stuff he hated about the old Fallout's and Elder Scrolls were cut out or steamlined. I have a feeling Pete has the final say with the designs of the games.
Still can't get over the fact that Emil ruined the writing.
Not gonna discuss power in a company with Todd and Zenimax
What about Zenimax? What's their input?
Elder Scrolls Online
Maybe it's their fault.
I blame Hitler and rise of AC/DC to be honest
I blame the monkey...
So the reason why Bethesda games are being dumbed down is all Pete Hine's fault?
He's the PR guy he's not involved in any way with game development only promotion.
He's in charge of PR but happens to be the VP for Bethesda Softworks as well. So he does have influence in game development in a way.
So far there are hints that some of his decisions and input are being implemented into Fallout 4 (in an interview I recall reading, he specifically mentions how he always wanted to walk away in conversations which resulted in the idea of 4's current dialogue system). There is also the matter of his behavior where he reacts in a dismissive manner towards harsher members of the Fallout community. Here is one explicit example of such behavior:
Nah Pete Hines is just an imbecile but I doubt he has that much influence. His job is just lie on twitter about performance issues.
It's probably a combination of shallow market research development along with Todd Howard's ego (during E3 he mentioned only FO3 stuff when stating what makes Fallout Fallout), general incompetence on the part of the project directors to handle development scheduling and just Emil Plagiarulo's lack of writting skills. Trying to pin it all on one person is pretty stupid.
Oblivion and Skyrim wasn't, to some extend, written badly, not on par with Fallout stuff. Hell, the most of shit in these games are mostly gameplay and sound design/soundtrack, which is Todd's territory.
"I used to be an adventurer like you, until I got an arrow in the knee".
"we're watching you scum". And? Fallout 3/4 is far beyond regarding writing, you dare to oppose burning windmills?
