    If by done right you mean a Bethesda RPG, then yeah I guess. One would assume it's Fallout in space. There were rumors a while back that they were trying to do more with it though, like space combat and shit, but I forget the details.

    Bethesda doesn't have a great track record of 'doing things right'

    I’m not exactly sure what I mean.

    I suppose Bethesda’s trashcollector sims are a bit fuller experiences than the almost completely void gaming that NMK offers.

    But then, NMK (I assume) also lacks Bethesda’s inanities by being an almost empty husk. So...

    Why anyone into RPG's is even remotely interested in future games from Bethesda is beyond me.

    They're maybe not really RPGs, but the gameplay loop of going somewhere, having some simple combats, picking up loot, and going home has some appeal. For me it mostly depends on what the setting is. If it's deadly boring (TES) or pretty fucking boring (FO3), it doesn't work for me. But Obsidian used their formula well in New Vegas, so I dunno, maybe they'll suddenly discover how to not suck? I'm not hopeful, but there's a chance they'll pull it off.

    Actually, you can see how 'a space opera/space epic' game would be most fitting for a Bethesda RPG. Exploration and their brand of 'environmental storytelling' has always been their strong suit, and it goes well with big semi-emptiness of space.
    If they can create a halfway compelling/distinct setting and keep quality and production values at least at post-patch Skyrim levels (and not a shitshow like F76 was), it could be good for what it is.

    Bethesda do one thing really well, hiking sim exploration, and yes it would be nice to have that in a space opera setting. We shall see.

    For me it depends which way they go. If they stick with Fallout 4's premade personality voiced protagonist, level-based point buy character system, and total lack of choices of any kind, I'm out. If they return to Skyrim's blank slate protagonist, excellent learn-by-doing character system, and substantial, objective-based decision making in (at least some) missions, I'll be very interested.

    Also, this job listing says Bethesda Rockville (Todd Howard's lair) needs a Video editor for marketing purposes. E3 trailer?

    I had way more fun with FO4 than TOW. Bethesda games are rich in gameplay systems + mods to screw around and have fun while ignoring the shit narrative design. And when narrative also gets done well you get GOAT FNV :D

    He's probably assuming that Starfield uses another iteration of the game engine created for Morrowind, in similar fashion to Oblivion, Fallout 3 / New Vegas, Skyrim, and Fallout 4.

    Although if Bethesda is attempting to create a new game engine for Starfield, this would perhaps explain the delays. :M

    Bethesda's gameplay systems suck too.

    They are successful because no one makes similar games. KCD has fixed protagonist is way too story-focused, Piranha bytes games are in a niche of their own, Witcher 3 is a cinematic popamole with dead uninteractable world, Ubisoft's rpg-lites are boring checklist simulators.
