    just point out one thing.
    1,2 and NV has same problem with fo3 doesn't mean
    fo3 isn't bad.
    for every gamem, there's a lot of flaws that are not important.
    most of them are just discussed for kidding.
    and at playng game, that minor problems can be ignored.
    but there's a single(or more) problems that makes game into trash, then the game is trash.

    Also, one should ask what a large organization would be in the context of Fallout 2. How large? Thousands? Millions? Or maybe just hundreds is large for an organization in a just-right-now becoming like the modern world.

    Like every thread like this is...

    I recall reading somewhere that Enclave had "hundreds of soldiers". Considering it was after nuclear war and what equipment they had, I'd say that they were pretty powerful.

    Well, if he had any reading comprehension he would 1. know the difference between Their and They Are, 2. Realize that there are like a thousand topics exactly like this one and 3. Realize how badly written is Fallout 3.

    He doesn't let such pitiful trifles as "grammar" or "ortography" bother him :)
    Also, he actually PRAISED F3 for writing, saying, that F3 had perfect proportions between dialogue and action... And NV had too much reading
    I mean, reading? In my shitty fps?! Preposterous! :)

    Canon is changeable, its the same in every franchise, is written and rewritten. This is in my mind the definition of fanboyism, an absurd attachment to a franchise staying the same and reacting angrily when it grows.

    Hehe...
    In Fallout 2 for example canon grows.
    In FO3 it's destroyed.

    If something is illogical within universum, it's rather obvious that it's gonna be disliked by fans.

    Except we're not a bunch of fanboys living in the past, unable to see that Fallout 3 has made the franchise "grow", as you put it. We like a video game franchise, and we react negatively, as Languorous_Maiar said, when an addition is made that doesn't really make sense, in universe. For example, Vault-Tec now have FEV, despite that belonging to a different company, with little to no explanation. It's a stupid change that's just there so Beth can have their wasteland orcs. I mean, is FO: BoS a moment when the franchise grew, as well? Or is it just the games you like?

    So is logic? If Bethesda doesn't give a crap even about common sense (Megaton? Little Lamplight? Really?) than why should they even bother with making their games consistent with previous parts?

    Hard to argue against that considering it's true. Two examples:

    -Jet was a post-war drug with a 100% addiction rate, now it's a pre-war recreational drug that doctors even use as a substitute for Med-X/morphine.
    -Looting pre-war stuff is one of the main parts of the Capital Wasteland economy. After 200 years there's still loot everywhere.

    FO3 is full of this stuff.

    That doesn't mean it's a good thing. Retcons aren't inherently bad (primarily because they CAN be handled well) but if are made en masse with the writer obviously not giving a fuck for consistency I can't see how they aren't a negative.

    But don't you see? Any change Bethesda makes is "growth", regardless of whether it actually is, and we're all too bitter and blind to see it! We need to stop being so absurd, worrying about petty little grievances like consistency. :roll:

    Can't we just ban this little troll kid already and be done with it? All he's doing is embarrassing himself and the fanbase he's a part of.

    We do not ban for differences in opinion.
