    I was thinking what it would be like to have a game based on the pre war life but with the same rpg elements of like fallout 3. Like for the factions, you would have different jobs you could work at such as police, criminal, soldier and things like that. It would also be cool if they had working cars and things like that. I know it would not even be Fallout anymore and seem more like Grand Theft Auto or something but it still would be fun for me because the closest thing you can get to what it was like before the war was Fallout 4 and that did not last long at all. Who thinks this would be fun?

    No, it would be too depressing, at least in case if sticking to original lore.

    Kinda like that but Mafia 2 was not an RPG at all it was more like a movie based on the mafia. I was thinking more like a game where you could choose the outcome like in fallout.

    Only if it is to show how horrible the world was becoming, social unrest, food riots, martial law, new plague, Canadian occupation, further rationing, Chinese internment camps all that good fun.

    So basically an American 1940's but without a justified war, social unrest due to the economic decline and the fact that businesses are cracking down on their employees to prevent foreign spies from using the business as a spring board to invade the country.

    A massive reduction in civil liberties and rights in general to the point that martial law is literally the new normal. A Massive surge of the population ripping itself apart either for or against military service, unrestricted research into highly questionable fields with even more questionable ethics. Which lead even further to more unethical projects such as "Vault Tech".

    The annexation of Canada and the large amount of unreported war crimes and atrocities committed against all sides involved with the conflict which later escalates into the United States battling the Chinese in Alaska for the Oil pipeline.

    Continued price increases that eventually leads to the vast majority of American citizenry to become destitute and impoverish leading to shack towns and riots, which of course leads to additional civilian casualties because police and military forces have to turn on their own population and suppress them.

    The new wave of poverty leads to a new plague that quickly sweeps the nation and its neighbors due to the increasingly difficult living situations of the population. Not to mention the astronomical price of basic medical care forcing those who suffer to seek the comfort of illicit substances to mitigate their pain.

    Oh and the rich elite basically standing on top of the starving population necks like rats on a sinking ship.
    Yeah... I don't think the developers could get away or do the required justice to pull that one off.

    However if someone did have the stones to make such a thing it would not be playable in the same way as a Fallout game. The base mechanics simply would not work, due in part because of the way the government is always watching its citizens for signs of treason.

    Lol no. Dumb idea tbh. Dumber idea now that prewar has been retconned to super cheery prosperous times.

    I see no retcon. Fallout 4 doesn't exist, also.

    Yeah it wasn't so much a retcon so much as an outright contradiction but whatever.

    Lol what Fallout have you been playing? Everyone knows the Pre-War world was perfect.



    I'm adding that to the "retcons" I hate.

    I actually hated Fallout 4 tbh I have not finished it yet. It does not feel like an RPG and it feels really rushed and forced. Plus the new speech system sucks it does not let you talk the way you want your character to its just yes or no answers. The only thing I liked was the beginning and the amount of customization there is for your appearance.

    Sounds to me as if Bioshock, Deus Ex and Fallout made one hell of an ugly mutant.

    I dunno about it being an outright contradiction. While Vertibirds and dudes wearing T-60 armor are genuine contradictions, a happy family in what seems to be a wealthy suburb readying up for the morning without a care in the world seems alright.

    I'm voting yes, but it needs to done right. I was thinking of making a completely different genre of game, but just in the same universe. Perhaps some detective noire style game. The main plot doesn't even need to directly great war related necessarily. Just the setting you're in will help flesh out the lore a little bit, and you'll get a better idea of how things were. Or I guess, you could have the protagonist find out about some shady corporate or government thing going on and you get killed at the end as a coverup, sounds just right for a depressive Chris Avellone plot.

    Eh... At least they remembered the inflation. Or at least their art department did. 9c6a604a3cca8cf2cb775eb8a0469b21.jpg
    $29 for a comic book. Maybe the only consistent thing in fallout 4? Although this does suggest the prewar world was well aware of the zetans existence...
