Will in ten years Fallout still be relevant as a series?

    I’m sure you’re joking but I’d still like to point out that Vice President Daniel Bird was a parody of Dan Quayle, not Al Gore

    That is actually why Fallout 2 drags a bit for me with all the stupid in-jokes.

    Was 2 written by someone else? I know its notorious for the tone being COMPLETELY different.

    I think it was made in less time than New Vegas so let that sink in.

    I think it was like 9 months? Which is basically half of New Vegas. And New Vegas still had a ton of cut content.

    The truth of it is I don't think the writing was ever really that great in Fallout to begin with but it was pretty good for 98.

    Not all of it even back then, but it has plenty of great writing. Obviously it has some dumb shit (Fallout 2 being the worst offender in the originals), but even the best written stuff has some questionable things.

    I guess my point is Fallout was good due (to me) to C&C since it made the world feel real.

    Don't forget about building 200 settlements and becoming the leader of whatever faction you join after doing 5 quests, and still have no power on that faction and have to do everything yourself, since ordering people to do stuff is not allowed.

    And still get treated like shit, even though you are the leader of every faction.

    Fucking Bethesda, i swear.
