Expectations and Desires for the game.

Still on the Bethesda Games Fallout 3 forum PipGirl posted this question:

Does anyone else also get a soothing warm and fuzzy feeling when browsing through these dev threads, that doesn’t seem to be any where else on the forum?

Fred “fizzbang” Zeleny (pictured above) made this comment:

Absolutely. Even when I read through other interesting threads on here, so many of them seem to quickly degenerate into nastiness and flames. Which is a shame, because when people are discussing matters with civility, I think we all gain a great deal of understanding about where we’re each coming from in our expectations and desires for the game.

At any rate, thanks to all the folks on these threads, and to those who do their best to be polite and foster civil discussions in other threads. And, of course, thanks to the moderators, for cleaning up the messes when things don’t work out.

    Hypocrisy! “Civility” for them means agreeing with what Bethesda does, and not just being civil. Do I need to explain why? I guess not.

    Still, I’ve been having discussions in the codex that are more civil than most I had in FO3 forum. Those boards are full of anger, alright…

  2. Fallout 3 forums are quite a mess, but what would you expect. That is how it goes, Fallout fans have waited for 10years, and then there are the guys that hear it for the first time. Mix those two together and you have a mess.

  3. Wow, who would’ve thought that a meet and greet thread with such polarizing topics as, “Which movie do you like?” and “Do you eat cookies at work?” would be a haven for civil discussion?
