So from looking at Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 and even Fallout NV we can assume that by 2300 the Fallout universe is going to be looking to building factories and getting into infrastructure planning. It just can't be the same. I don't think this was intentional, Bethesda made efforts to make the game generally "fun" for the whole family and well I don't need to invite discussion on the state of Fallout 4 but part of this is having a lot of "stuff" and to have stuff you need to have lots of buildings, power, factions, inventions, and so forth but it leaves the whole series on the cusp of even more dramatic changes unless they start going back and filling holes in the timeline. I don't even think it might be a bad thing, we could have a Dickensesque New York which has a lot of opportunity for good story and things, on the other hand I fully expect Bethesda to take this in bad directions and to double down on their efforts to make the series even more LoLwAcKy. Then there's also the possibility that Bethesda keeps the series basically stalled at Fallout 4 levels of advancement, they could of course come up with some reason to do so and that might be an interesting story in itself but I fully expect Bethesda might simply never address the issue and continue chugging along as they don't seem to care if Fallout makes the least bit of sense. Just a shower thought I had this morning. Discuss.
