AdAstra placed this question on the Bethesda Games Forum:
Imagine that your favorite game series is, say, the Elder Scrolls series. How how would you feel if the Elder Scrolls V featured turn-based combat and a free-floating, eye-in-the-sky third-person camera?
I see where you’re coming from here. Now I cant say I grew up a Fallout fan, but I know that other franchises I loved growing up took drastically different routes with sequels (such as Retro Studios’ take on Metroid), and in many cases I ended up loving these games. Personally, I’d suggest having an open mind when it comes to Fallout 3…our guys are definitely trying to give it the “Fallout” feel. Of course, you’re free to do as you like
Metroid isn’t the only example, GTA is also a good one. But there are instances when the opposite occurred, like on the Master of Orion series, the X-Com series, Deus Ex II, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel…
Anyway after some roar Gstaff cleared something up:
TwinkieGorilla: i don’t want a bethesda game with “Fallout” feel. i want FALLOUT dammit!!
Gstaff: Yeah, maybe I didn’t phrase it well. Obviously, we’re out to make a Fallout sequel. In the end when it’s released, it’s ultimately up to you to decide on how you classify the game.
We sure will.
