    Gundam made a good video on this.

    Pretty much took the words right out of my mouth. Didn't think about Bethesda wanting to remaster Fallout 3 in order to get money for paid mods for their Creation Club.

    Its probably a Fallout 1 remake, atleast I hope. Fallout 1 and 2 remasters would be nothing to sneeze at in terms of the business it would likely do either.

    The countdown for every other Bethesda's Fallout game was way more detailed than that one.

    FO3:


    FO Shelter:


    FO4:


    FO76:


    Maybe it's not Fallout. Starfield?... :lmao:

    Whatever it is I assure you I will not buy it because it will be hot garbage. The kind of garbage that has been sitting in the back of a truck for three months, riddled with maggots, and shitty toilet paper.

    If it really is a Fallout 3 remaster, I don't expect much from them. They'll probably dig up some ancient 2008 code, slap few improved shaders onto it, rebake textures if they still have source files and, most important of all, reintroduce some bugs from 2002. We certainly won't be seeing FO3 ported to FO4 engine, that's what modders are for, silly!

    I would laugh my ass off if a remaster of Fallout 3 actually happened and some people noticed just how bad Fallout 3 truly is. I would bet good money that a lot of the people that claim the game is good is because of an emotional attachment based on nostalgia, and not the actual quality of the game. And that's because they haven't played the game in literally 10 years.

    And if it's something else, not touching it if it's made by Bethesda itself because i already know the design choices they love to use. I would take a look if it was made by a different studio, but i doubt it will happen.

    When you say Skyrim 76 for whatever reason I think of Skyrim but in the year 1976.

    "You see that mountain? You can walk there." - 1976 reminds me that was the year when the term "meme" was first used.

    The actual rig which any of post-Morrowind Bethesda's games are designed for, 1976, colorized.

    I actually really like FO3 and there's probably some nostalgia playing a part in there, but I still play it a lot (never stopped playing it in all the 10 years). I keep switching between New Vegas and 3 because most newer games that get released these days just suck. I know New Vegas is a way better Fallout game, but as a general exploration game I still prefer FO3. If they would remaster them and it would look as good as The Outer Worlds, I would buy it, but it won't and since I really don't like how F4 and 76 look like graphically, i'll just stick with the original versions.

    I am curious as to what's lacking in the graphics/art & appearance of 76 & 4? I have not played (or looked carefully at) either, but that is the last thing I would expect to be sub-par from Bethesda. If anything, I'd think that's all they are good at.

    Everything. Those games look dated, borderline antiquated. Art direction is not that interesting, animations, as always, are stiff and limited, shaders are simplistic at best, textures are, again, as always, low resolution. They both look like games from 2011, not 2016/19

    What.

    I know. They're shit. And considering that Zenimax also owns id, it's utterly inexcusable.

    If you aren't a post-apocalyptic fanatic, then there are plethora of open-world games where they did general exploration better than Fallout 3 and more. For some recent releases, even though I haven't played it but it's generally critically acclaimed Witcher 3 showing you how it's done, and then there's ELEX! from the creators of objectively THE best that the open-world genre has to offer, which are Gothic 1&2 (you should try them too, even though they're pretty old games because there are ways to make them run properly and smoothly on more modern PC). And lastly, the most recent release I can name of is Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

    And believe me, once you've tasted the sweet-sweet fruit of an open-world game done right, you'll never look back to any of Bethesda games... unless for the mods which are the actual value that their games has to offer since their vanilla experience is legitimately worst than shit.

    Literally dozens of open world games that have been released since Fallout 3 that are miles better than it. And Fallout 3's exploration is god awful, about the worst kind of exploration you can have in an open world. Everything scaling to you, no sense of danger, loot is absolute crap and what you explore is copy and pasted crap.

    It's a theme park and theme parks aren't exploration.
