[ Community -> Editorial ] - More info on Company: Bethesda Softworks

"Don't Buy The Hype" is an essay written by Bradylama detailing, among other things, the rise and fall of the Elder Scrolls franchise, and Bethesda's role in the Fallout community. It's a lengthy read, but well worth it, no matter your opinion on the matter.

Here are some clips:

What does this mean for the future of NMA and DAC? If the evidence from the blacklisting of RPGCodex and STG are anything to go by, there's a significant possibility that as the hype machine for Fallout 3 kicks into gear, Bethesda will attempt to use DAC and NMA in order to serve as marketing tools, as was the case with STG and STGU. Eventually, when Bethsoft finds that NMA and DAC won't tow the party line, they'll be blacklisted, and Bethesda may possibly even attempt to garner DAC's complacency with meaningless benefits and exclusive info.

The previous statement serves as a warning. If Bethesda does attempt to control NMA and DAC they are sure to be severely dissapointed.

...

If I were a betting man, I'd say that the Fallout communities should brace for impact.

Read on for the full impact of his argument.
