Pete Hines has given another interview on the subject of Fallout 3, this time to Computer and Video Games. It's rather short, and there's some things he still can't talk about naturally, but here's a question about the future:
Finally, what do you think will be the next big progression in the RPG genre?
Hines: An increased emphasis on immersion and allowing players to play the game any way they want. Obviously the Elder Scrolls has always been about that very thing, but games like KOTOR were great not just because they were fun to play, but because you could have a blast playing as the good guy while your friend was enjoying it as the most evil son-of-a-gun you can imagine. Same game, but completely different experiences and choices that let you customise your experience.
Anyone want to bet the immersion thing becomes a battlecry at some point during this development if it hasn't already?
Thanks, Mr. Teatime!
