Now before you get your pitchforks out and tell me to kill myself hear me out first. This is one of two posts i'll be making one will be defending those who think the new games are great and the other will be defending those who think the older games were great. This one will be defending the new Fallout fans opinion on the older fan base and the older games. Again I WILL BE DEFENDING BOTH SIDES IN SEPARATE POSTS!!! Before the rant begins lets take a little history lesson. On September 30, 1997 the first Fallout game was released to the gaming public. The game took place in an alternate timeline where the U.S.A still had anti commie propaganda and looked like it had gotten stuck in the 1950's. The game takes place in a post apocalyptic Southern California after a Great War had taken place between The United States, China, and the U.S.S.R. This very battle would leave the world looking like something out of a Mad Max film. That's the jist of the story but what about the game? Well the game played as a turn based strategy/RPG game. When ever your character would enter combat you would be given a certain amount of action points to use to however you see fit. After a person or creature used up there action points the other enemy would then be given a turn. What made the game interesting aside from the story was it's use of the environment in these battles if you were to make your character walk behind a wall the other enemy wouldn't be able to shoot you thus adding to the over all strategy element of the game. Now when the enemy was defeated you would gain XP from your battle. After doing enough battles and completing enough missions you would eventually level up and gain some points to add to your skill tree. This would be part of the games RPG aspect. Another thing the game offered was choice such as do I help this person or should I help this person? You had full control over what kind of person your character was. Plus you also had a variety of weapons to choose from thru out the entire game so you also had that to. The game was a success in fact in did well enough for there to be a sequel released on September 30, 1998. However unlike most sequels not much was actually changed about the game minus a new story. The biggest difference between the two games was the overall tone of it, Fallout 1 had a more serious world where only the best can survive where as fallout 2 had a more silly and brighter tone to it. Other then this however not much would change...or at least that's what most thought. In 2004 Bethesda Softworks bought the rights to the Fallout franchise while some saw this as a new light to the series others saw this as the beginning of the end. After a little while Bethesda would release their new game Fallout 3. Now rocking a new 3D engine Fallout looked and played differently then it's previous adversaries. No more turn based combat now the games battles would take place in real time only stopping when the character had entered the V.A.T.S system. The game received amazing reviews from critics just like it's original counter parts. However while some cheered at Bethesda's attempts to take the game in a different direction others despised this and hated Bethesda for changing their game. These people could not stand to see what Bethesda had turned their game into no more was Fallout about turn based strategy now it was FPS/RPG. These people felt Bethesda had taken a game they loved and burned it to the ground. This is where the Bethesda hate train would begin. Now that those uninformed have caught up lets talk about the actual title of this thread. Now a good majority of people don't understand why these as some would call them "classic Fallout fanboys" would be so mad at Bethesda which is understandable I mean after all it's kinda like the book to movie argument while you might enjoy that movie there will always be the one person saying the book was better. Well part of this comes from the fact that these people actually believe that Bethesda have taken "their" game and completely destroyed it. I once heard someone say this "It's as if Bethesda had taken every copy of the original games threw them in a hole and burned them." This may seem extreme but it is very true with SOME of these people. But like you can't judge a book by its cover you can't judge a person by their first impression I will admit I mistakenly did that with this website to which I am still very apologetic about. This doesn't apply to every person who enjoyed the older games it just applies to the select few who make it very noticeable. Now this is where my main hate with this is going to come into play so i'm just going to state it now. YOUR COMPLAINTS ARE WORTHLESS!!! Lets be honest when have developers ever listened to those who mock them and complain about them 24/7 I mean would you? Think about it these VERY SPECIFIC people would rather hate on the company and their franchise rather then actually give good criticism. NEWS FLASH PEOPLE yelling like 12 year old COD player isn't going to get Bethesda to listen to your complaint's it's just going to make them ignore you even more. Also people at the end of the day IT'S JUST A STUPID GAME look I am a full believer that video games should be seen as art but come on people you gotta let go of the past and make way for the future. Fallout has had it's bumps with Bethesda but guys remember Bethesda has only made 2 games The Elder Scrolls now compared to the Elder Scrolls then has had so much improvement so who's to say Bethesda can't also apply this to their next Fallout game? In conclusion this overall hate to the new Fallout games and Bethesda is a little nuts. Yeah Bethesda is nowhere near perfect I mean take this mods thing for example. But Bethesda does care yes they care about money but they also care about Fallout and they aren't going to let it die. Heck Bethesda counts the older games "minus the spin offs" as lore to and have even done a good job at adding on to it heck want proof check out a YouTuber named Oxhorn he makes videos on Fallout's hidden lore and good lord for all the crap thrown at Fallout 4 one place Bethesda did not fall was in the lore. So guys lets stop complaining and look forward to the future of this incredible game franchise that we all grew up playing.
