Yeah, that would be really cool the first time. I'm a little concerned it would end up being like Fallout 3, which had an amazing opening that turned into torture by the third time you had to play through it.Kilo147 wrote:If they have the opening take place before and immediately during the war, I'll be so fucking happy. Now, where did I put my dosimeters...
On a side note, I'm hoping that they end up setting some of their games earlier in the timeline. Fallout was about eighty years after the Great War. Fallout 2 was about eighty years after Fallout. Fallout 3 was about forty years after Fallout 2 and thousands of miles away. Fallout NV was about the same time period as Fallout 3 and closer to the original location. This leaves huge gaps in time and space that haven't been filled in, without even leaving the U.S.
I'd like to see a game set just a little bit after the radiation from the Great War had diminished to the point where people could just start venturing out of their shelters. It might also be cool to see what happened to the American counter-invasion force that was occupying part of China when the Great War started.
Of course all these games take a lot of time and money to make, so they won't be able to make every game that every fan wants to see. On the other hand, there were only two years in between Fallout 3 and New Vegas. It would be nice if they could farm out more games to Obsidian and other companies and have a more frequent release schedule. Maybe they're worried about quality control, or that they might be eating into their TES sales?
