My first post, feels exciting up to a point. *takes a deep breath* That's my story as a fallout fan... My first Fallout, was Fallout 3. And I loved it. I thought it was an amazing game, which admittedly was marketed as a horror game to me. Needless to say I was young. A lot of Fallout 3 flaws eluded me for many years. I don't want to cover all the negatives of Fallout 3, of which there are many and of which you are all aware about. But even after all the horrible mistakes Bethesda made, I still thank them for introducing me to Fallout. I also openly admit, that the concepts of what they want to do are pretty good, to me. Execution not so much. Admittedly, I still have a bit of a "Bethesda fan boy" in me. When I first saw this forum it filled me with hatred for all of you (not the best introduction, but hear me out). It is easy to stumble here and just see an entitled community wanting it their way or no other way at all. That said, you all quickly changed my mind. I love fallout universe and the lore (what actually attracts me most to the series), and overcoming my strong emotions I actually saw one of most dedicated communities to Fallout. So I want to apologize, for the initial impression I had of you. I want force you to change your views, but me personally I still have a deep connection with Fallout 3, which I enjoyed more that Fallout New Vegas. I know, blasphemy. It brought me back into gaming at the time and set up an incredible world. I do appreciate the world design of Bethesda. And for that I will forever be thankful. We, what some may call "Bethesda fans", may have our reasons for liking their games, you know? That said, while Fallout 3 could have been an excellent, yes an excellent, set up for fallout stories on the east coast, they kinda threw all potential out of the window. Well, not all, but quite a bit. Their own lore retcons, stupid ideas etc etc. I also came to realize how incompetent some of the people at Bethesda are. While Sawyer to this day answers questions about Fallout New Vegas; the design philosophy, stories and themes, Pete Hines states that he doesn't have time to debate about the lore of the a "fictitious" work, or something. It was a tweet regarding the jet retcon. And I once was a guy who said that Fallout 4 will be the best game ever... yeah, its good so far, we will see. Anyway, just wanted to share some random thoughts, sorry if it was a bit of rumble. I didnt go here with a specific goal of topic in mind, just thoughts... I will always appreciate Bethesda for what they done to me, and be disappointed in them for what they could do if they actually tried to "live" fallout like fans and other developers do.
