    The more I read other forums, the less excited I'm getting. There's so many people out there asking Beth to make FO:4 as somesort of GTA meets Mad Max meets Call Of Faggotry type thing, and we all know Beth listens to those types of morons and not sensible people.

    I know you shouldn't call people stupid but are they on purpose blurting out the most ridiculous and nonsensical crap their brains come up at the moment.

    What the hell does GTA have to do with Fallout.
    There are influences of Mad Max in Fallout, just not the whole 'car driving bandits who prey on each other'.
    Call of Duty? So I guess they want Bethesda to get rid of those mean old weapon statistic and instead make the game as much shooter focused as possible.

    Do they honestly think the resulting game would still be a Fallout title.

    I wish these mouth breathers did something better with their time and money than buy average generic games and support bad developers.

    That's exactly what some of these people are asking for...

    I'm all for a working vehicle as long as the map is big enough to support it and it's done logically and used to get from point A to point B. What I'm not for is barreling through the D.C. ruins, jumping piles of rubble in my car, and running down packs of feral ghouls and raiders.

    I honestly don't know what to say what hasn't said before.

    I HOPE THE FUCKING GAME INDUSTRY CRASHES AND DRIVES THESE ASSHOLES AND RETARDS AWAY WHEN THEY REALIZE THEY ARE NO LONGER CATERED TOO AS A MARKET.

    I don't have a problem with trying to make games to appeal to more people than a core group, adding elements those people enjoy in a game.

    But this is leaving what was left of the core group and switching to a completely different market while keeping up the pretense that this would fit in the series.

    These people should completely be ignored and never be spoken to.
    Stupidity should not be rewarded, like in nature it should be punished when it is clear that the person behind it is not incapable of learning but simply is refusing to do so.

    Problem is, they make up the majority of the audience.

    All we can hope is that a part of the industry realizes that medium budget story focussed rpg's wouldn't be a bad thing.

    And now we have! With kickstarter. I'm salivating at the mouth with the prospect of Wasteland 2, Project Eternity, Torment 2 and more . . .

    I absolutely loved FO3 and FONV, but... (for me) Skyrim, their latest game, was awful. I'm hoping this is a genre thing and not a gameplay thing - Skyrim just seriously bored the hell out of me. Maybe I just don't like medieval fantasy RPGs that are also FPSs..whereas with a game like fallout, that involves guns and shooting things, an FPS feels a lot more natural and I can run with it.

    So I guess I would say I'm mostly excited, on account that I liked both FO3 and FONV; but hesitant thanks to Skyrim.

    If they made it more like FO1 (moot, they won't), that'd be cool too, actually. I could seriously dig that.

    Also I agree some posters - bethsheda recycled engine is getting dry. Please.. just something else ( can still even be FPS), but... don't use the same engine, with simply updated/better graphics/etc

    In the end, I just want a well-written RPG in the Fallout Universe. After Skyrim, I just can't see that happening, especially after all the fanlove for it. Those tools at Bethesda are probably thinking "If it ain't broke don't fix it"

    Following on from what Dutch said, yes, sometimes I do really wish the gaming industry would crash just to remove that casual gamer consumer (and by causal gamer I mean REALLY casual, like, they only play Halo and FIFA) It's just so dull having to dredge through the long list of mediocre games trying to find the gold.

    The engine isn't bad but the games are not the best.
    We will have new generation of consoles available to us later this year - this will give the developers more to work with so hopefully Bethesda will be able to upgrade their engine even more and make it better.

    True. I guess it doesn't have to be the engine - it just needs to be different somehow.

    Unlike FO:NV, its called FO4, so hoping for something fresh.

    Regardless of whether it's good or bad, Fallout 4 will still be seen as better than Fallout New Vegas, because Bethesda can do no wrong, whilst when they give it to another company, it's instantly shit, and all the exact same flaws that FO3 had will be pointed out in it, whilst those IN FO3 (and soon FO4) will be forgiven.

    It just annoys me that that's how FONV was treated, and how it will be treated. It's a good game, but people just dismissed it as a further FO3 DLC (disregarding the large world, the story and characters, all of which Bethesda gave Obsidian 18 months to do)

    Fallout 4 will be the BEST GAME EVAR, similar to how Skyrim was the BEST GAME EVAR, and FONV will be remembered by FO3 fans as that mistake, that one bad one.

    Because that´s the difference between good pacing, and giving the player what they want instantly and all the time without thought or reason.

    Sure it's not the same as the Interplay's Fallouts, but I personally enjoyed Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. All I have read online about Fallout 4 was a teaser tweet by the voice actor for Three Dog. So maybe we're returning to the Capitol Wasteland or Three Dog expanded, I'm hoping for the latter because navigation through Fallout 3 was a pain in the DC area and constantly had to go underground to get some place literally in plain sight or around the corner.

    Knowing it's Bethesda, I don't expect much; my only concern is the size of the map, I hope they' learned some lessons and will make it at least as big as it was in Skyrim.

    I'm hopeful, i overlooked FO:3's flaws and managed to enjoy the game. i LOVED New Vegas. I can honestly say its one of my favorite games of the last decade. I hope that Bethesda takes the improvements Obsidian added to the game and run with it. And if not i hope the new PC Kickstarter based indie scene takes off. I contributed to Wasteland 2 and Project Eternity and am confidant they will be great

    Skyrim was the most recent game they made out of the Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchise, I would imagine they would make it even bigger than before, probably even bigger than Skyrim's map.

    I really love The Thing™, can you put The Thing™ in your Thing™? That would be epic and awesome. Because I don't want to go through the trouble of learning about something new. Give me exactly what I already had, new, with The Thing™ to make it more cool©.

    Wow, you've basically summed up exactly what Bethesda fans are like. After Fallout 3: WE WANT MOAR FALLOUT. After Fallout NV: NO that's the wrong KIND of Fallout! WE WANT MOAR CITIES!! NEW YORK/BOSTON/PHILADELPHIA (other east coast big city) YEAH!!!!
