*Nervous drinking habit begins*
@The Senate, nervous? Not just drinking habit?
This keeps me up at night...
It won’t be. Todd cares too much.
Plus, Bethesda seems to realize that good games make more money than bad games. A lesson EA can’t seem to figure out.
The Elder Scrolls VI: Skyrim II
*It's just Skyrim modded to have more stairways*
This is just Skyrim with extra steps!
The only thing you have to fear is fear itself. And that of course is a honey badger with a chainsaw
Elder scrolls is one of many series that their respective studios just can't afford to fail. Those devs know that if they screw it up, they will NEVER be forgiven by the fanbase. And besides, Bethesda's games might be buggier than the average termite mound, but there wasn't a single one they've released in more than a decade that was anywhere close to bad.
Or Borderlands 3
Please don't let it be another Fallout 4...
@Doctor Krieger, I don’t get the hate for Fallout 4. The story was a let down but the gameplay was pretty darn good.
@I Are Lebo, so I played fallout 3 for the first time just before fallout 4’s release. I fell in love with fallout 3 and once I finished it I became excited that I was experiencing this at a time when I would move on to the next game in the series just a week later. Unfortunately, for me, fallout 4 felt off. It just felt “hollow” compared to the last game. Not sure why, either. And unlike fallout 3 where I began to love it more and more as I progressed, I couldn’t wait to be done with fallout 4 once I finished the story.
@RMB, Fallout 4 was much more focused on gameplay than on world building, unlike Fallout 3. The removal of armor and weapon durability didn’t help with immersion, and the story of Fallout 4 was aimless. There are times when the Sole Survivor acts frantic to find their son, but between those times they don’t care. The reactions from the character to things end once you leave the vault, so you have the worst middle point between a character that you can put yourself into and imagine their personality and character, and an established identity that has their own backstory.
The worst thing that made 4 worse than 3 is the dialogue, though. Having your dialogue choices stripped down to positive/negative/sarcastic/inquiring dumbed down the game and made it feel like your choices didn’t matter. The fact that much of the time they actually didn’t enforced this.
Your meeting with Preston Garvey for example. No matter what you say to him, his speech is almost unaltered, and the outcome is too.
@I Are Lebo, yeah pretty much all that lol
Still not a “bad game”, but it fell short compared to its predecessors.
@RMB, at the same time, the leveling system of Fallout 4 is far superior to its predecessors. I miss the skill system but the perk and xp system of 4 is so much better. Nothing is worse in a Fallout game than hitting the level cap after buying everything you could want or need and then no longer having any reason to continue questing.
As well, the armor mechanic of 4 is SO much better. Modular is better than only having hat, glasses, and body slots.
The run and gunning is better as well, especially with the inclusion of a sprinting mechanic. Gunplay is smoother, and weapon modding is great (though would be better with maintenance to weapon durability).
I still think they should port marrowind to the skyrim engine.
@ThePandaPool , there are developers in that process now. They've been working on it for years, so who knows how long it will really take.
@ThePandaPool , is that like a city made of bones?
New meme format?
Gonna be the we quiz kang's edition of elderscrolsl
It’ll be fine, but if you’re worried, I have one thing that will calm your doubts. Mods.
It could be the best game in the world
and people will still say how crap it is compared to morrowind
come on, how hard would it have been to scale the text down by one size, then it would fit
