Okay buddy.
I'd normally tell you to take your meds, but given the desperation Bethesda displayed with Starfield, I honestly can't hold the shill accusation against you.
And yes, I realize that I'm in the minority of fallout fans* that like the series. Though I've only watched the first three episodes. If it goes to shit, I won't be surprised.

*Favorite is F2, refunded F4 after playing it for around 10 minutes.

People are happy because the Fallout show was "not that bad" which is the highest praise Bethesda received in 9 years and it's not even them that made it.

Be thankful this is just a mod and not Bethesda's attempt to culturally erase the originals with a paid 'reimagining'. Say what you will about BGS but they haven't done that yet and they've given them away during anniversaries and included them in physical box sets.

Doesn't seem like they're trying to hide the originals or replace them in any way.
Todd Howard praise is rare for me but gotta give credit where it's due. He has no intent on erasing Fallout 1/2 with a remake or modernizing it in any way beyond it simply running.

There's no money in it. Tim Cain has been begging to get paid to remaster Fallout, they're not interested.

That's because Fallout 1/2 isn't something modern consumers would be able to handle. It would be unrecognizable as Fallout to them and it probably wouldn't sell much.

Fallout is now seen more like a ride at disneyland where at the end when you get off the ride you can buy a toy. Todd did that.

"I just need it to be M O D E R N I Z E D like Wasteland 3" is the lie plebs tell themselves to justify sticking with their Bethesda slop. They would die and quit out before making it to the map screen. If they were interested in playing quality RPGs, they wouldn't be Bethesda fans.

No.
They'll find some shitty excuse to like it after a while.

Remake is unnecessary, that's true, but I wouldn't mind better scaling at 1440p/4k or improved renderer, borderless mode, just enough to make playing it hassle free. In its current form, you can't even alt-tab without breaking it. People are praising Todd for "respecting the originals" while in reality he's just lazy af and doesn't care.

I was browsing some mods for Fallout and came across a Reddit thread where one of the guys who ended up working for the new Age of Empires 1-2-3 remasters said that the AoE thing was one attempt from them to get their foot in the door of several companies. One of the others was Bethesda, they asked them if they could work in the old Fallout games. They were told that no, they weren't looking to launch a remaster back then or in the future. For all it's worth, Bethesda just added a launcher, and you have the og games' files on your download.

Another gem to be paired with the one I've already posted in the Best Thread Ever.

I'd want a modding update for the original Fallout. Maybe some updated and expanded tools, but primarily the 3D models and textures used to make all the sprites. It'd be a lot easier to make new models with access to the originals, and keep them in the same style. Of course, this assumes Bethesda even have access to these things.

We need these remakes! For the sake of some new funny treads on this forum; full of hatred, whining and rage.

Sadly, keeping Cain's hands off Fallout now is a good thing. I'd hate to see what changes he has in store.

It's called "capitalism", sweaty. Look it up.
