    A thought.

    Perhaps instead of starting the player in a vault (again) you start off as part of a rag-tag team hired to investigate a seemingly abandoned vault (oh god I just pitched Fallout 4's intro with a role-reversal). Feels like prime opportunity to flesh-out your character's moral compass and introduce some interesting characters - and this is just the intro. Who am I kidding, though...just setting myself up for disappointment.

    Actually, Fallout 4 would have been a pretty awesome game if you played Kellogs.

    I hope they just make a game based on the vision of a game designer.

    Not exactly Fallout 5, but I'd love for someone to set up another super convincing hoax site similar to Survivor 2299, but then when the countdown finished it redirected to one of the myriad of video essays bashing what Bethesda has done to the franchise (Gospel of Anon, anyone?). I have a feeling that would be the only way to get mainstream gamers to recognize our point of view.

    If convincing people with words doesn't work, why do you think that trickery will? It like those spam messages that ends with asking you accept Jesus. Besides long form essays and videos along with the release of FO4 and the release of Witcher 3 (as a direct comparison to FO4) has persuaded enough people that Bethesda has bastardize Fallout.

    People's tolerance of Bethesda Game Studio is already at its limit (the rest of Bethesda is still being tolerated). It can't pull any cheap tricks to generate good will after attempting paid mods so poorly twice. It can't release a game until a new console comes out that can sort of handle the bloat of the Creation Engine. It doesn't have the talent to make a new engine or the smarts to hire someone who can make a new engine.

    Being realistic?
    A return to the perk and skill system of 3 and NV. (Ideally NV)
    NOT on the west coast (assuming it's going to be done by Bethesda)
    No more 'legendary' enemies and inexplicably enchanted 'legendary' weapons and armor
    No more settlement system, or a very limited version
    Keep the weapon modification and crafting system, improve upon it if possible
    A halfway decent story

    I think they're actually capable of this.
