Obligatory topic because.

Lets discuss;

  • How bad Bethesda are
  • Is it a Multiplayer Game?
  • Is it an MMORPG?
  • Is it a Battle Royale?
  • Is it like Rust?
  • Just what DID happen to Three Dog?
  • Elder Scrolls Online bashing
  • And more

Go.

I wouldn't say Bethesda are decidedly bad. They're just a tad out of touch.


I genuinely wish they'd do something akin to Fallout Shelter. I thought that was a pretty good game. Sure, it had micro transactions and was a time sink, but it was a nice, new take on the franchise.

After the Creation Club, I deleted all Bethesda games off my hard drive, and never looked back.


As for Fallout itself, I quite enjoyed building in Fallout 4. In fact, Fallout 4 WAS a building game to me, and not much more. 90% of my time in that game was spent in building. I would LOVE to have that in an Elder Scrolls game.


As for Fallout 76, everything I have seen suggests it will be Fallout Online, the direct Fallout equivalent to Elder Scrolls Online. Multiplayer in Elder Scrolls Online is optional, so I can only hope Fallout Online will be the same way.

You never played Hearthfire?

Hearthfire was much more module-based. You got a choice between building a kitchen, a greenhouse, a bedroom, but that was about it. The end result also had a set look which could not be modified. The furniture inside all had a set location which could not be moved.


Fallout 4 building was you actually building from scratch. You built what you wanted, how you wanted, and put what furniture you wanted where you wanted. The only limit was your imagination, and how much your computer could handle before it exploded.


If we get building in Elder Scrolls 6, it needs to be that scratch-style building we got in Fallout 4.

I'm curious what happened to Fallouts 5 - 75.

The Forest is similar in that regard.  I never actually got around to buying Fallout 4 because of the litany of negative reviews, and at this point, I'd only be willing to buy it for like $10.

Watch throughout the Steam Summer Sale. No doubt, Fallout 4 will be $10 at some point.

Seems like the obligatory "have valuable brand, need to make mediocre MMORPG to capitalize on it" move, but let's see. Rumors say it will be like Rust, which would make sense given the number of survival-type games vs. classical mmorpgs in recent years. I think the scenario lends itself well to that kind of game, but the tricky part is getting a balance between an exciting game and frustration for people who don't play 24/7. Rust was great up to the point where other people could destroy your work in minutes while you were taking a nap.

Who knows, maybe they'll even invest in character animation, that Morrowind-code is kind of showing its age.

Don't forget the obligatory monetize the fun out of any MMO. You either buy stuff with real money (after you already paid real money for the game in the first place), or you mindlessly grind for hours on end until your character obtains the skills needed to craft stuff on-par with stuff you could just buy.
