A little late on the ball here but I just came across this excellent piece in the Escapist Magazine on how Bethesda misunderstood and twisted the Fallout setting. As a consequence they ruined the franchise. We all know NMA already pointed this out way back when Bethesda first revealed their attempt at a sequel to Fallout 2. However it's always nice to find other people who have reached the same conclusion, albeit a bit late. Have a read!
