    Fallout was killed by Bethesda long time ago, at moment when Bethesda decided to pay for the rights .
    Bethesda is able to do mediocre crpgs at their best [yes, Morrowind included] , and great modding platforms with almost none to zero memorable crpg values.
    Let's be honest, they are not the ones, who can handle modern world, or post apo crpgs.
    As i JUST like their Elder Scrolls series, [we should notice large lore department there and.... thats all ] , i can't stand "emptiness" of worlds created by Bethesda.

    They made action games since Arena with almost generic and very straight forward - corridor like story mechanics , poooooor side quests, and none to zero choice & consequence values.
    Be honest and say how many bethesda crpgs you have finished while using NO mods or finished at all.

    Bethesda is great at giving hope and in some strange way pumping hope but after realease they rape our expectations.
    Their games are fine but no longer than first 10 hours. After that you are starting lying to yourself or just 'IMAGINE' a game you want to play.
    It's all about exploring sadly. Nothing more. Im sorry Bethesda but for now You are only empty sculpture for me.
    And this… Fallout 76 , well… what the fuck is this ?!!!! F U C K Y O U BETHESDA.
    I value my free time too much to spend any amount of it to play shit like this.

    You can say Morrowind was okay, Oblivion have some fun value, Daggerfall was creative , etc. BUT , these games were empty as holy fuck.
    If You want to play walkin sim with some crpg like features go for it.
    But not playing them at all you lose nothing important. And it's sad.

    There's nothing wrong with cashing into a craze, as long as you're using that cash to push the limits of your other games. Instead of trying to make good games from the ground up, they've been building tech demos on the same software for 15 years. "We've got this engine, what can it do?" not "This is the rpg that game design wants to make, get the best programers you can."

    With the perk cards, Bethesda clearly wants players to role play, because you cannot create a character that specializes in everything, but only in 1 specific thing.

    So bethesda wants people to play as a trader, medic, shop keeper, craftsman etc.....

    Now depending on how they will implement those systems, either it will work out, or they will fail and everyone will just be hunting each other down and pvping.


    However if they would succeed, you most likely would be meeting a lot of 'random' things, with people doing different things, you could see someone running a shop in one place, someone mining in another place....etc, and then players would realy take place of the NPCs

    I guarantee they'll make reuse Van Buren concepts for the inevitable dlc packs. The Colorado dog city one in particular, would probably sell like hotcakes.

    I'm admittedly not super well acquainted with the Vault 13 development problems. On the same subject, whatever happened to the Fallout MMO that Interplay was working on?

    Project Vault 13 = Fallout MMO, developed by Interplay.
    What happened? Short answer Bethesda canceled development (if I remember correctly they went to court and stated that Interplay do not meet their quality requirements / have not enough money to finish the game)

    Pfft, Bethesda may have cancelled their ability to make it, but everybody knows it was vaporware anyway.

    I just remember clicking on the site with Ma Rainey playing in the background. I thought it was a fanmade viral marketing scheme. It really is sad to see Interplay fall apart, but I've heard that the company itself was botched to hell with poor management.
