Talking to Videogaming247:
Bethesda’s Peter Hines has admitted that showing RPGs like Fallout 3 at tradeshows like E3 and Games Convention can be a frustrating business.
“Sometimes, yeah,” he told VG247, when asked if showing such a large game to people in such a short space of time was problematic.[…]
Fallout 3 did come under some fire after E3, where journalists were allowed to play the game for 30 minutes.
“You play the game and you see what you think,” Hines said previously on the matter.
“At E3 we let people play the game for a half hour, and if in a half hour you can make up your mind one way or the other, OK. I don’t really get into judging the rightness or wrongness of it. I just give people a chance to play it and they draw their own conclusions.”
