    IMO it was only a small slip, they wanted to get out a multiplayer Fallout based on Fallout 4 and this is what has happened.
    Starfield might be also an experiment in a little kind of a different game, but they should be back right on the track with Elder Scrolls VI.

    Of course it'll be much better. In 2050 Todd will be retired.

    Bethesda's games will suck with or without Todd. At least with Todd there we get some eye candy.

    I don't give a shit because Oblivion was already the big slip they never recovered from.

    Probaly. Release of this garbage showed that even Bethesdrones have some consciousness and Todd can't sell them shit anymore.

    I think it's opened the door for more mainstream criticism as the audience have started growing up, which will not be immediately devastating for Bethesda, but will affect them long-term as the popularity of their games suffer.

    They lost their monopoly of open world games. That was their advantage for still using outdated engine in new games. Now that they need to spend resources to create new tecnologies, they are struggling. They don't even wants to spend money in marketing their new games, like rage 2 and the new chicks wolfenstein, even when their only cutting edge tecnology is in the hands of Id software.

    Sadly, there are enough Bethesdrones that it'll take a few more flops for Bethesda to finally become Bioware 2.0 and die. Still, F76 was a promising start, let's hope they keep it up and deliver even worse garbage for TESVI.

    It’s going to have an impact. A lot of my friends who loved Bethesda games before were soured by Fallout 4 but gave 76 a chance. And of them, most hated it and now are saying they won’t buy the next Bethesda game unless someone they know has similar taste to them says it’s better.

    It tarnished their reputation a lot. Fallout 4 was a huge hit but it was no longer seen as a perfect game by the mainstream like their previous titles. Fallout 76 was a huge commercial and critical flop, it sold less than Skyrim at launch. Yes, I know it still sold a few million copies but Beth must have expected a number that was a lot higher than they got. I have no doubt that with F76 huge marketing budget Beth has lost a lot of money on F76. Which makes it harder for them to innovate in areas where they are already lacking behind like graphics and QA.

    The best thing about F76 is that it proved that brands no longer matter as much as they used to. A few years ago Fallout 76 would have still been a commercial success but in the age of Twitch, it has become much harder to sell a turd like Fallout 76.

    Sorry to break it to you my dude but i'm willing to bet good money on there never being a good Fallout game every again (and by that i mean a fallout game that keeps the fallout tradition). BS Games doesn't care about Fallout per se. They just want to monetize the iconography as much as possible.

    I disagree. We regularly get good Fallout games.

    Just not from the owners of the franchise.

    Fallout: Ressurection
    Fallout of Nevada

    Soon: Fallout: Sonora

    There are still things to look forward too. And Bethesda? Screw them.

  18. You guys must really be crying yourselves to sleep at night knowing Bethesda is still on top of the gaming industry. Starfield will be a hit and the next TES game will break records. Deal with it nerds.

    I was actually surprised that Fallout: 76 was received so badly. Amazed me because Bethesda fans are so damn loyal. Anyways, I hope it wasn't an indicator of the Bethesda series. I don't mind their TES games because of how well it's modded up. I didn't even both with Fallout: 4 because of the talking NPC.

    In my humble opinion, this thread, and all Bethesda-related threads, have no business being on the 'Dex.

    They said the same thing about Bioware and yet Andromeda and Anthem were not successful.

    Both with Biowank & Bethestard, they're ticking over nicely coz the copy-paste mong buck is keeping them treading water. But it's true to say that even the mongtards are catching on to their mongyness now.

    I think both companies will continue to tread water, until a shift in trends & another CDPR or similar arises to sink them.

    The audience is still spending it's cash, but only because few genuinely good, well-known alternatives exit. As TW3 showed, it doesn't take much for folk to jump ship.
