Glittering Gems of Hatred part deux
Glittering Gems of Hatred part deux [ Community -> Article ]
Posted by King of Creation Mon 05 Feb 2007, 3:57 AM

Kharn has put up the second of three parts of his series "Glittering Gems of Hatred" on NMA.

Last week we refreshed everyone on the history of Fallout fans.

This week we'll look at the questions we posed then, the "What is wrong with you people?" and "Why are you always angry?" questions.

This part has two chapters; the first is about the bitterness of Fallout fans, it looks at how this bitterness is actually a part of what kept the franchise alive, but also look at how this anger has developed in respose to the way the Fallout franchise was treated.

The second chapter looks at the way gaming franchises work, how franchises like X-Com have died while the TES series has been thrown about in odd, but successful ways, and what we can expect from the Fallout franchise if maltreated like that.

Thanks to Kharn and Jiujitsu for the tip.
