Pete Hines on Why It's Fallout "3"

More info on Game: Fallout 3

Pete Hines was asked by MTV Multiplayer why Fallout 3 really is the third in the series.

“We do consider it to be part of the series and we are trying to continue the legacy of ‘Fallout 1′ and ‘2′,” explained Hines. “That’s part of it, which is that we wanted to fit in to what’s going on. We didn’t want to suddenly just call it ‘Fallout’ because then it’s like we’re trying to pretend like the first one didn’t [exist].”

The way Hines talked about the subject, you could sense that making Bethesda’s take on “Fallout” as an official third entry raised the stakes for them on a personal level. It drove them to make this a true “Fallout” sequel, not a mere reboot, even if the visuals had changed.

“There’s only one ‘Fallout’ ever. There’s only one ‘Fallout 2,’” said Hines. “Those games will always exist and we didn’t want to do anything that was seen as trying to start over again. Honestly, we never really seriously considered anything else. It’s the next ‘Fallout’ game, that’s what we’re trying to to, both for people who played the original games and people who never have.”
