    Fallout 3 at E3 - plaudits

    Here are some thoughts of the gaming press on Fallout 3's showing. As the gaming world turns decided it is the game of the show, for highly amusing reasons:
    The Bethesda team had only one game to show but its been THE best game of E3 - "Fallout 3". I'm talking far and away the best, no one else is even close. Todd Howard, executive producer of "F3" and of the "Elder Scrolls" franchise was on hand to give us a personal walkthrough of the game. He spent an hour playing the most brilliant First/Third Person Shooter (gamers choose the camera angle or can switch on the fly) I've seen in a long time.
    Fallout 3 reaches number 10 in Next-Gen's top 20 next gen titles of E3:
    What is it? The highly-anticipated RPG from Oblivion house Bethesda.

    Why you should care: Aside from E3, we were able to get an eyes-on look at the game back in June and came away thoroughly impressed. Executive producer Todd Howard says that he and the Fallout 3 team have been huge fans of the franchise, which Bethesda now completely owns, and so far that fandom shows through in what we've seen. Simply put, Bethesda makes excellent games, and as most recently proven with The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, these games can also sell. With the brand power behind Fallout 3, Bethesda could have an even bigger hit on its hands.

    This one's easy (although it may not have been if Fable 2 was a little further into the development, or if Peter showed a bit more of the game). Sure, Fallout 3 was another contender, but at this stage of its development, we weren't convinced.
    Award goes to Mass Effect (Xbox 360) by BioWare and Microsoft
    USA today thinks it is a very attractive looking game:
    The game is still at least a year away from retail, but the early version rolled out by Bethesda was by far the most attractive-looking game of the show.
    Spotted on Fallout 3: APNB.

    Urgh. The stupid. It burns.
    This is without a doubt the dark age of RPGs.

    Also, Fallout 3 takes the average 10th place on this list, Mass Effect the very good 5th.

    Am I missing something or the immersion became the dispersion?

    Fable 2? Did they even play the first one? You could complete every single quest in about 8 hours. Also, probably the easiest game I've ever played.

    O_o List of 'next-gens' ???
    I sense large amount of retardness in that sector.
    True, fusion cells shouldn't just explode, but then again, I don't really care. Exploding cars are fun.
    FO3 target audience is FUN!
