    I am pretty sure people got confused about the reviewer saying those things and not your wording. :drunk:

    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!" :lmao:

    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."
