    It seems there is going to be a partnership between Amazon and Bethesda. Westworld's creators are going to be the makers, with Tod as executive producer.

    Well who knows, if Todd doesn't screw this up it could turn out to be interesting...unless they rape the lore, of course. Bet they are gonna set it on the East coast.

    I wonder how much influence or direction Bethesda will give them in this. The most hope I can have is something completely original yet true to the core of Fallout no stupid references to games specifically, something unique and well written. No weird disregard for the established rules of the world would be nice.

    But I doubt it, it’s hard to have hope with Fallout.

    Honestly it could actually be legitimately good. Fallout is a great setting and there are great stories to be told in that world.

    We know in reality it will be shitty though. Such is life.

    I was just thinking yesterday that this is the perfect time for them to try to make a TV show or movie. I remember talking about this on here over a decade ago. I can't wait. It can either be horrible or decent but either one will entertain.

    I'd love for them to adapt Fallout 3 but sadly they'll try and do something out West probably.

    Yeah it would be a shame for them to stay true to the series roots.

    Never-mind how much they'll have to take away from the universe in order to make it palatable to the average normie, I just don't see the point in adapting an RPG into a serial. And even if they make it an anthology series the story-telling in the game will still be better because you can actually interact with it.
