Fallout 3 rips off BioShock, franchise now like FIFA

Fallout 3 is a BioShock rip-off according to an article on Heroine Sheik (it's some kind of blog) but that's a good thing. Here's why:

As frustrating as it is to see one game rip off another, it’s hard to stay annoyed at Fallout 3 for long — because, frankly, the game looks awesome. The crowd here at PAX, perpetually entertained by explosions, cheered whenever someone’s head got blown off. Personally I could do without all the fighting in this shooter. Seriously, forget the guns, forget the enemies, and make this world simply explorable. For the first few minutes of the demo, when the audience was free to admire the eerie landscape and the bizarre, radioactive towns, the game’s fiction was really fascinating — and fun. Radioactive cola, anyone?​
In other news, Pete Hines has said on videogaming247:

“We didn’t buy it just to do one and then to never anything again. So it’s sort of like confirming there might be another FIFA next year. It’s their franchise and they’re going to do another one. We bought it for the purposes of doing another one. If we were just going to do one, there’s any number of things we probably could have done differently.”​
Like make a real RPG instead of a shooter? Hyuk, hyuk. Milk that cow.

Thanks Cthulhugoat and larpingdude14!
