Bethesda's 'first person shooter' on GameSpot

GameSpot have a boring 24 minute video thing up (which controller do you prefer?) that mentions Fallout 3. I'm going to rip-off Briosafreak's idea and embed it in the news post too:

<embed id="mymovie" width="432" height="362" flashvars="playerMode=embedded&movieAspect=4.3&flavor=EmbeddedPlayerVersion&skin=http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/cne_flash/production/media_player/proteus/one/skins/gamespot.png&paramsURI=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gamespot.com%2Fpages%2Fvideo_player%2Fxml.php%3Fid%3D6193032%26mode%3Dembedded%26width%3D432%26height%3D362" wmode="transparent" allowscriptaccess="always" quality="high" name="mymovie" style="" src="http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/cne_flash/production/media_player/proteus/one/proteus2.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"/>​

Word on the street is you need to skip ahead to 11:00 to see the goods. And yes, they say that "Oblivion with Guns" is "no longer an isometric, top-down view, it's essentially become a first person shooter. It's run and gun, shoot zombies and that sort of thing".

There's also an interview with Pete at 14:00. Pete says that Bethesda:

"Have had a large fanbase since 1994 (for Elder Scrolls) and we're used to big passionate fanbases and to doing things in a certain way and to a level of quality. We don't just want to re-iterate the same game over and over though, we want to re-invent it."

"We wanted to include real and difficult moral choices to make. New ideas like perspective (1st or 3rd person), VATS. Spent a lot of time trying to capture the dark humour and stuff. If you want to play entirely in real-time, you can. If you want to use VATS all the time, you can. Most people we find use both. Take advantage of VATS in big battles."

"Main quest is 25 hours. Well over 100 hours of content for you to find and explore. Encourage you to replay more than once. Play it one time as a good character, play it as an evil character and see how experience is different. Play a stealthy character. Single-player only, no multi-player."​
Yes, re-invent it by making it more like Oblivion.
