Spotted this over at NMA and thought it was relatively interesting. From the latest issue of CGW:
CGW: While we can understand the need to be
sensitive to social issues involving the portrayal and treatment of
children in free-form environments, it seems very strange not to see
children in Oblivion at all...
Pete Hines: That's something we're dealing with right now in Fallout 3. So we'll see how that issue turns out.
Interesting. Personally I think kids should be in there, with the
ability to slaughter them as well. If the game handles it well, then
there will be severe consequences with many of the waste's other
residents for such an incident.
