[ Community -> Article ]

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.

I really hope Bethesda will get to read this, it should make them think. As should a whole lot more, but we all know that. Good article indeed, especially for NMA standards.

way too much text and needs more tits. smile
It's quite repetitive as well, in a nutshell he's saying that
FOBOS & UFO:Enforcer stink because they weren't true to the franchise canon, thus if FO3 will be Oblivion with guns it will stink off as well
big fucking deal

Yes. Seems logical to you and me, but not to everyone

I agree. I can't tell you how many "I don't understand all the hate toward Beth" posts I've seen all over the net.

These articles will be a great reference in the coming months. Thanks.

I'd say because of Vivec. If that wasn't one of the worst level designs ever.. It still brings tears of hatred and frustration to my eyes along with a dirty feeling I can't seem to wash off, no matter how many showers I take. I scrub and scrub untill the bathwater turns red but it still clings to me like oil on a penguin.

Bethsoft, I hate you.
