    Can't wait. I'm a big Bethesda Software fan. Fallout, Elder Scrolls. Fun.

    About time. I was wondering what they could do once the merged with/acquired I.D Software as their engines were kinda chunky even though it looked great.

    Did that just say we are 11 months away from release? Holy Fuck. It was originally set for release this month.

    If they're going to take another year to release it, it better be the crowning acheivement of Bethesda Software. I'm still playing Oblivion. The mods that are available make that game nearless endless in possibilities. I would hope Skyrim will be the same.

    Bethesda is one of the few gaming companies I think can not only live up to expectations, but surpass them. I'd rather them take as much time as they need. And they are. For that, I'm expecting something great. They've never disappointed.

    Curious to see the new engine.

    Oblivion is good, Fallout will always be better

    Oblivion's setting was a lot more fun to play in imo.

    Fallout's story was better, but it was so depressing.

    I am way more into the Fallout universe than the Elder Scrolls. I just don't get into the whole magic, ghosts, goblins, and knights thing. Fallout always felt more real even though it's a 50's imagination of a post apocalyptic world.

    On top of that, I never felt the recent Fallout stories were depressing. The original, sure. Yet that was great IMO. Honestly, I actually enjoy a depressing ending to a well written, sad story. It fits. That is how tragedies end. The original Fallout was a masterpiece in it's time.

    I was referring more to the environment than the story (I know I wasn't clear on that). I like the variety in the Elder Scrolls series. I got tired of wandering barren wasteland in Fallout, and wandering was what I loved most about Oblivion.

    Although I hope the dungeons, caves, etc. have a little more variety in Skyrim.

    Yeah, they went a little too bleak in Fallout 3. I played through all of Fallout 3, and then heard about the oasis. My first thought was "cool, they had one area that was brightly lit, totally different," etc. Yet it was not much different once I finally got there on another play through. Fallout New Vegas did change it up some, but they still didn't have enough. Although much of that was engine driven. Hopefully in the new one they actually change up the feeling from time to time. I know the old Fallouts didn't change up much, but they did a good job with what they were given (they had much less they could do). I really felt they missed the boat with Fallout 3 at times. If given the chance, the old Fallout universe would have been more diverse.

    Not even a whiff of actual gameplay.

    Fallout may be more depressing, but the story is better. The setting is scarier, probably cause a nuclear arms race in the 50s could have made it a reality. The characters are more entertaining for sure. I loved some features of Morrowind and Oblivion, but the total package couldn't hold a candle to Fallout imo.
