That's where Bethesda dropped the ball. Fallout wasn't just a setting, it had a tight rules system too. Just like D&D isn't just a setting. Bethesda doesn't like the restrictions that real RPG systems impose on their ADD addled target audience - Cimmerian

Interview with FO3 Girl Designer Ashley Cheng
Interview with FO3 Girl Designer Ashley Cheng [ Company -> Interview ]

HONG TONG WE WOOO CHI CHE CHICKEN!! I'm actually not sure if it is actually a woman but a guy with a womans name but for the moment I'm going to assume its a woman.

One of the things that Bethesda games are known for are their excellent story lines. How does your studio come up with them?

We look for stories anywhere we can. Our designers are our story tellers. They write out what happens in quests, they write back stories about characters and lore, and they write all the dialogue. But those are just words and a starting point. From there, our level designers and artists create the living breathing world and that’s where we truly excel.

The most important story, for me, is the one the player is telling himself as he plays the game. It’s the story you tell your buddies at work about what happened to you while you were playing Oblivion or Fallout 3. Everyone has a different one to tell.

You can read the rest of the interview here.

Thanks, spokomptonjdub.
