Wasn't it Bungie?
Pretty sure it was ID Software since they are under the Zenimax umbrella (well under the Microsoft one now anyway).
People always say this, and it is true, but the thing about walking around a theme park is it's a heck of a lot of fun and the set pieces are pretty neat. Fallout 3's exploration and set pieces provides the bones for an interesting world and interesting stories that are more than a momentary distraction, but the lack of coordination or vision from the lead writer and devs means it never rises above the level of themepark.
Fallout 4 is a themepark in the sense that it's world of momentary fleeting distractions and set pieces, but the difference is that these are largely uninteresting and uninspired even at the most base level.
Pretty sure it was ID
Kind of a lame thing to have as the only improvement. Mechanical improvements are nice, but uh, I don't exactly play Fallout for the shooting. Such a small victory.
I like theme parks, in real life. The thing with theme parks in RPGs specifically is that too many "cool" setpieces shatter my suspension of disbelief and to me that's a big no-no. The game should be sucking me in into its world, but too many of these things and makes me question how this world have this much "cool" stuff and that takes me out of the experience.
I like cool setpieces myself, but in my opinion they should be used sparingly. Because too many of them and they become mundane. And that's what happens with the Bethesda Fallouts, and really the Elder Scrolls since Oblivion.
I guess both did.
Ah, a fellow settlement building enjoyer.
Indeed! It is the attempt of 'Fallout world experience in a nutshell' that makes it a failure; it's like taking the [Pirates of the Carribean] theme park ride, rather than watching the movie it was based upon.
I don't know how apt (or not) it is, but it reminded me of this:
The movie was based upon the ride
Oh fuck yeah. You know it.
Fucking Todd man. A simple change of dates ducked up the entire story and setting of Fallout 3
