    This reminds me of a post I saw on the fallout subreddit a little while ago, saying that fallout fans shouldn’t shit on Bethesda because Bethesda “saved” fallout and if it wasn’t for them then fallout wouldn’t be as popular as it is now. It’s hard to believe someone can make that argument unironically.

    “They totally changed everything I like about the series but, hey, at least a ton of people know about it now, right?”

    I still remember mfkndggrfll. It was like a month of arguing and the thread (arguing Fallout 3 is better than Fallout 2) he made had like 800 posts. Then he went to the Codex after Hass suggested for him to go there and he got properly figurately gangbanged.

    Guess that qualifies as a funny argument with a Bethesda apologist.

    Not wrong though? Change is not always bad and neither is it even that far removed. The og Fallouts are not Shakespeare my dudes. Also, which games have inspired more mods and fostered those communities?

    That's such a damning comment because the larger chunk of mods for Bethesda games are mods that make their games less crap.

    See, I was nice and told the kid to not go on the Codex because I knew that if he did it would be like a baby gazelle walking into a pride of hungry and angry lions. Don't let it be said that I am completely heartless.

    Either he has the highest amount of retadred ratings, or he's at least top 5. In one day he was already collecting multiple tags like dumbfuck!!, Bethestard, and shitposter.

    After a while his schtick got old when he started to go after Planescape Torment. That thread barely did much, and he hasn't logged in to Codex in think like over a year.

    Doesn't every mod make a game less crap/better though? At least they set out with that goal.

    My point is that we don’t have an obligation to give Bethesda credit for making the series popular. Who gives a fuck if it’s popular, I’d rather it be actually good.

    I would make the argument Bethesda didn't even really change anything. They just made Oblivion with guns.

    Everyone has what they consider to be good though, which is fine, not refuting it.

    Oblivion is the best RPG ever, and that opinion was too edgy for Reddit. Excuse me while I tell the Codex about this hot take.

    I tried Oblivion but the leveling system pissed me off and I haven't gone back. I hear Morrowind is the tits

    Played them all, Oblivion was the best thing ever to 12 year old me. I still like it, but it ain't the same.
