    This old GDC talk from 2012 by Josh Sawyer is called Do (Say) The Right Thing: Choice Architecture, Player Expression and Narrative Design in New Vegas, which should be pretty a decent explanation of what you will find within.

    As far as I can tell, it has actually been freely available on the GDC site since September 2015 but we never actually newsposted it, so now that oversight has been rectified. Phew! Only 2 years late on that one.

    The GDC is mostly shit but sometimes you can get some good content.

    Holy shit, this video should've been THE tutorial video for Bethesda how to make a good (Fallout) game.

    Thank you for the news and link.

    It probably was, but they wanted a "make a game with popular elements from other games while removing pretty much any real choice or consequence and RPG elements but make sure the player can make a God Character in a few levels so we can attract the most possible players for this game" tutorial instead.
