Fallout 3: Who is this for?
Fallout 3: Who is this for? [ Community -> Article ]
Posted by King of Creation Thu 21 Jun 2007, 4:42 PM

Brother None has written an article analyzing some points about information released by Bethesda in order to determine who, in fact, they are making this game for. Here's a snip:

Game Informer editor Matt Miller noted, when answering what his overall impression was of the game, that "If you are a fan who is adamantly against some significant changes to the way gameplay occurs in the Fallout series, I’m going to tell you right now and save you the disappointment: I don’t think you’ll like Fallout 3. However, if you’re a fan of the Fallout universe, of the unique look of the world, of the moral ambiguity, of the dark and often violent humor, and the invigorating branching story paths, then everything about what I’ve seen of Fallout 3 should please you."

While we haven't seen nearly as much of Fallout 3 as Matt Miller, this strikes one as an odd conclusion to make. Not only is he limiting what defines Fallout in a way that directly contradicts statements from the developers of the original game (ref), but Miller is making a sweeping statement about expectations. To understand what he's basing this on, it is best to first examine the specific elements he identifies, namely the unique look of the world, moral ambiguity, dark and often violent humor, and invigorating branching story paths. Afterwards, we'll look at some of the revealed Fallout 3 elements on our own.
