I am pretty sure people got confused about the reviewer saying those things and not your wording.
It's like dark humour except for the fact that it's not dark humour, it's slapstick
(This is basically turning in to aback and forth dialogue of one-upping each other in bethesda hatred now, but I just had to say this one)
Dark Humour is when you are laughing at what should be a serious unfortunate thing, and actually requires skill to do right.
Bethesda just throws in silly, whacky, over the top NPCs and anything they pass of as "Humour" is stupid cartoonish logic applied to a game they want us to take seriously.
There is nothing about Fallout 3's humour that makes it anywhere near being Dark Humour.
I thought that people would be less surprised that someone whose idea of a Catherine review is "anime is shit" with one Q*bert reference would be talking out his ass.
It clearly wants to be Dark Humor.
No, I said that to you saying this:
To Risewild. I'm sure entirely sure what does that first question meant, really. But the answer to that second question is just damn wrong. Risewild is a member of TTW team, and he's sure as hell played A LOT of New Vegas. But I see that those questions aren't actually directed at Risewild, but that you meant to address people who praised Fallout 3 and shunned at New Vegas, so sorry!
Is it ever implied that the developers care whether their interpretation of Fallout is taken seriously?
Like, legitimate question. There's only one guy at Bethesda who wants the game to be taken seriously (the guy who tried to salvage the vanilla game's story with Far Harbor). Maybe two - the guy who snuck in skill checks in that robot boat quest where they sail the boat into a building rather than into the river that connects to the ocean.
I always thought that Far Harbor was just Bethesda's way of telling players "See? We could make the game with "skill checks" and all of that stuff many people want if we really wanted to. But we didn't. We're not incompetent. We just don't want the game to be like that, so deal with it!"
I always thought Far Harbour was a way of saying "We've got to stop players from complaining about the lack of skill checks. Lets put the bare minimum amount of effort in to putting skill checks in this DLC and players will stop complaining" and it worked.
I always thought Bethesda employes stoped giving a fuck a long time ago in a gaming office far far away ...
It's probably a low-level writer who has some secret beef with upper-management, and he decided to put in all of the things they hate like some sort of final swan song.
So, r/Fallout no longer believes that Fallout 3 was the grimdark peak of the series.
Still not quite understanding dark here Reddit, but better than last time.
Though there's still this guy:
Meh, should've gone for "not being able to kill children yet still able to enslave them."
"Bethesda purposefully make their characters bland because the games were designed with us roleplayers in mind to fill in the blanks."
But don't you think that works against the company's favor if their target demographic is roleplayers and not the rest of the world?
"No. Also 'bland' is subjective."
Fallout 76 the darkest Fallout? RIGHT!!!
Oh good lord, that's one of the worst reviews i ever seen.
Granted, he's right about the game being released in a broken state, but then forgets that Fallout 3 was also buggy as shit at release. That's not an excuse for the state of NV at release, but don't use Fallout 3 of all things to compare the state of a game.
Holy shit, he complains about several npcs not having interaction with the player but forgets that also happens in Fallout 3 and games before Fallout 3. Not every NPC is going to be interactable.
Lol at him complaining about New Vegas not having level scaling.
And the cherry on top of this shit cake of a review: saying Bethesda had to step in to fix the bugs of NV. Bethesda were the ones that did playtesting and QA of NV, not Obsidian. And the hilarity of saying Bethesda fixes bugs when their games are still full of them, even after being heavily patched.
This one is straight from YouTube
"Anyone who thinks FO4 is too much action and not enough RPG, go read a book."
I'll be honest, I enjoyed Far Harbor more than the rest of FO4. Maybe it's because the "skill checks but not really" tricked me into thinking I was playing a good Fallout game.
Which book do you think has the best options for character creation?
Reading a book is a much better use of your time than playing Fallout 4.
I had no funny arguments with them, all their arguments are dumb, and stupidity is rarely funny... for me at least.
