    One thing that makes me happy about the trailer, is that you can see the I'm S.P.E.C.I.A.L. book in the baby's room. Stats have not gone away, it looks like. The magazine rack held the findable stat books, and the parts cabinet showed a wide selection of perk icons. It's still an RPG/FPS hybrid at the very least. To what extent the RPG half will play like, is anyone's guess.

    ...what? Fallout isn't about post-apocalypse, it's more of a post-post apocalypse. The entire war is gone and over, it's been over 200 years of complete silence and rebuilding, things are coming back to normal, but it'll never really be the same ever again. That's what Fallout is :L none of this "Omegerd collapsed buildinz hurr hurr muh immershun".

    Also, lol @ the desert comment. You can make a lot of interesting things with a desert environment, it's just Bethesda gets a knee-jerk reaction whenever 'imagination' comes into the field and tighten Obsidian's leash. Nightstalkers? How about giant, burrowing sand-worms, or giant, fast mutant road runners that'll knock you off your feet and peck your skull apart in seconds. An Oasis that's actually a deathtrap, holding some powerful beast out in the wastes. In terms of creatures, you can go a far bit into the creativity. It's just a shame we didn't get giant rattlesnakes in dens, ambushing the player or NPCs and gobbling them up.

    side note: I love how when I spot an obvious troll on Bethesda's forums and call them out, I get a warning. GG Beth.

    Has any else noticed the poster of a list (blurry) of perks in the background of the garage behind the power armor to the right ?

    I agree with your sentiment. I take the same approach to games, the highlighted part is of the main reason I couldn't get invested\immersed in FO3 and I found FO:NV quest structure (and more familiar setting) far more enjoyable. <br /><br />However, open world games aren't intended to, nor should try to realistically portray real life, they should provides appropriate context for the player experience and interactions with the game world to maintain a suspense of disbelief. Its when you loose that sense that the illusion of a wider world dissipates and people start nitpicking about unrealistic infrastructure nonsense.(been there done that)<br /><br />Personally, it has been a while since I enjoyed any open-world game (I don't know if its lack of time or the ever growing sense of been there done that ), but it is important to understand that our preference isn't a fact... Like it or not, FO3 was generally better received, with many stating that its world provided a better sense of exploration...

    New here, not to fallout but to nma. I for one am excited. Even a sub-par fallout installment is so much better than most everything on the market. It's cool reading all passionate comments. Cheers guys.

    I have to agree. 3 May be one of the worst Fallout games, but as an open world FPS, that even has a few stupid little binary choices thrown in? It really shines. I'm hoping for a genuine RPG, but if we get another exploration FPS with cool set pieces, bad writing (except for the stories we find in ruins), a large world and fun binary choices, then OK. Here's hoping they let someone do a spinoff game if that's the case.

    That doesn't mean the bombs recently went off. Do you see any of the damage left behind from The Civil War? You don't, because in the time that's passed, people have rebuilt.

    ATTENTION: If you don't know anything about Fallout and haven't played the previous games then 1.) You're missing out. And 2.) I would recommend at least playing Fallout 3 or learn what Fallout is about.

    Who else started a new character on fallout 3 after watching this?!? Lol i fucking love these games I'm still playing and finding new things on Skyrim! I hope they never stop pumping out Fallout and Elder Scroll games

    Do you have to know the full storyline to play and understand the game?

    Well, It would help to play three, its story is why all the water is purified and why the brotherhood of steel are in vertebrae. So yes and no.

    Unless Bethesda suddenly does something stupid you have nothing to worry about. At worst all we'll see is the hilarious glitches Bethesda games are known for

    That says nothing of how ALIVE the world will feel. Skyrim has plenty of castles and cities and they still feel populated by quest dispensing robots.

    No it's not, there's a huge difference and it makes me shocked that you think Post-post apocalyptic means...Post...wut? Post-Apocalypse means you're in the time period where shit hits the fan and just surviving in the deadly world, I'd say the moment the nukes went off to 20-30 years is considered Post Apocalypse, 30 years stretching it. However, in NV and FO3, you're taking place OVER 200 years into the future. The scars are healing and frankly, the dangers of radiation have subsided, and people have rebuilt enough to create new nations and are thriving in the new setting. This is post-post apocalypse.

    To be fair, in F1 you could walk up to a random guy in Hub and say "You smell like a brahmin but I don't think you're as smart"

    this made me so sad

    This is a pretty big negative for the first two games for me. There were a lot of dialogue options that would just result in combat -- which would then result in the entire town turning on you. Kind of pointless.

    This is just shit you're pulling out of your ass that has no basis in fiction precedent, and no relevance to anything anywhere.
