    I don't talk like that. I was having a giggle.
    It does if you hate it because it's bad and completely fails to live up to the franchise standards.

    I think the difference is that we come to our opinions without emotive responses, rather through concrete reasoning, though I do say so myself.

    It's fine to like Fallout 3, or 4 for nostalgic reasons, or even that it was that it was the first you played (my first was 4 and I still can't stand it though) but again, it is pretty wrong to say that they are better than the classics or NV.

    Thus I agree with this.

    Apologies.

    Well, we like to have definitions of genres. And the Bethesda Fallouts (NV included) are action-RPGs. RPGs are more about character skill than player skill.

    Interplay was a small company back then and Fallout emerged out of a side project, right? I wonder how the graphics might had looked after a doubling down or remaster, because Isometric graphics can be fucking beautiful. Fallout 1 and 2, however, yea, are hard on the eyes, but it's the story that grabs most, anyway.

    I'm not a huge graphics guy but when Fallout 2 came out it was alongside similar titles like BG or PS which seem a lot easier on the eyes. It is comparing a post-apoc game where everything is decayed old-world ruins, adobe mud huts, or cold steel infrastructure. Versus BG which is high-fantasy with bright(er) colors and a more varied palette. Is it a fair comparison? *shrug*

    The thing that bothers me with F1 -> F2 is that the UI remained consistent - consistently garbage. UI/UX wasn't really a field of study at the time so it's hard to fault them for that, but no-one bothered to think scrolling a tiny column for your inventory was a bad idea?

    That was my biggest complaint. I think in Fallout 2 you can use the scroll wheel? But I don't think it ever tells you this. I remember there being some improvements albeit small ones from 1 to 2 in terms of UI.

    I guess bugs and frustrating UI are something Bethesda decided to keep from the original games though.
