I'm pretty sure Interplay could have made FalloutDoom in 1997 if they wanted it. And in terms of scope, Daggerfall was a thing by then, so yeah. They were more interested in making a RPG and not a FPS dungeon crawler with light RPG elements. It's just these morons can't just say they don't like turn based, or for another example tank controls with fixed camera angles a la Resident Evil games before 4. They just have to throw the word outdated without explaining why. But of course, Bethesda fanboys aren't gonna say Fallout 3 is outdated, because FPS means it's current regardless of quality to them. Ignoring the argument that Fallout 3 was already dated back at release because it played worse than 90s FPS games.
