SHADOW Wrote:I think we're both a little concerned for fallout 3 for completely different reasons. I want it to be a lot like oblivion (even though there is no way in hell it could work well) and you want it to be like the classic fallouts (which i never played).
You're a fan of western RPGs and you've never played fallout??? That's insanity dude.
I don't know how I can make a top 5, I always have such a hard time with these lists.
In no particular order because I simply cannot choose:
Baldur's Gate (haven't played the second one yet, working on it)
Legend of Dragoon
Lunar 2: Eternal Blue (mostly for Nostalgia's sake)
I'm not even sure if Parasite Eve counts as an RPG, but to me it's the best thing squaresoft ever did. I'm probably missing something.
Oh, and I'm personally in the don't **** up fallout crowd. If it's too PC (as in politically correct), or it's too much like Oblivion, or if they even try to turn it into some kind of FPS, god help me I will kill them. I personally didn't like oblivion. I only played for about an hour but the first person perspective didn't really agree with me. I think I'd have a better time with it on a controller. In any case, I'm about 60% sure the guys at Bethesda are gonna **** it up. I don't know if they have the talent or ability to replicate fallout. I don't need it to be isometric, but I don't want it to be Bethesda's "safe" vision of fallout.
I think what made Fallout so great to me was not the storyline, it was the dialog, the world around you, the things you saw and experienced and the humor of the game. It was incredibly enjoyable. It just made me happy to be playing a game that was great at all the little things and had something to tie it all together, albeit the story isn't incredibly deep or anything. "It's not about the destination, it's about the journey" That sums up my fallout experience pretty much, and those were two games no person with a PC should ever pass up on. Also, seeing as how the company is defunct I see no harm in getting it by "alternative means".
