    My only complaint with Morrowind is the disconnect between attacking and the dice rolls.

    I want to get into it, but I keep getting frustrated. I think it's because I keep trying to be a mage and it isn't going well.

    I know, part of it was that for some reason I keep thinking being a vampire is worth it for all the stat bonuses but then I lose my patience and my save game is deleted.

    Do what you gotta. Just for the love of all that’s holy don’t come back and say it’s a masterpiece. People will flip. Including me.

    It’s the beginning of Beth’s downhill slide, to be blunt. It’s not a true RPG, rather the beginning of the casualization (is that a word?) of the genre. To put it simply.

    Jesus CHRIIIIST.

    I can forgive him for not playing F2, I GUESS, but then don’t fucking talk about it. Goddamn I’m not sure I have the mental fortitude to jump into that.

    I disagree with the view that Fallout has to inherently be an Isometric CRPG. While yes, the OG games are masterpieces IMO, I certainly don't think that changing the genre and form was a bad thing either.

    My view on what makes Fallout, Fallout, is more on theming and exploring civilization, culture, and economy in a post-nuclear society. Along with creating a world where players can interact and shape said world. (Arguably you could easily make an Immersive Sim Fallout, and I think that would be pretty badass).

    Fallout New Vegas easily slips into this category, Fallout 3 somewhat succeeds, Fallout 4 tried but failed, and Fallout 76 was a disastrous mess that I will not delve into.

    It's all up to interpretation and it's an interesting debate to see what Fallout means to different people.
