I think Fallout 3 and 4 are great, broad, open world exploration games, and while lacking some of Fallout's truest elements, I think that the games are a blast to play, despite not being good Fallout games. A lot of people treat them like a piece of garbage, yet the games still have great content, just not RPG elements. For example, the art direction for Fallout 3, by the late, great Adam Adamowicz was fucking beautiful. I feel like it combined new assets and styles, while keeping the style of DC similar to that of cities in the previous games, with large concrete facades, and Art Deco-esque busts of titan-like figures, with angelic valkyries on many corners.

While it didn't quite capture the eerie aesthetic of cities and ambiance in the originals, I believe they made good games. TL;DR: Bethesda make great games, just not very good RPGs.
