What does Bethesda need to do to make Fallout 4 perfect?

1 of 11

We have all heard the rumors: Bethesda will show Fallout 4 in some form at this E3, be it a trailer or gameplay. The hype and anticipation for this rumored reveal has already reached astronomical heights.

With the possibility of information on a new entry in the venerable RPG series, I think now is a great time to discuss some ways Fallout 4 can improve upon its predecessors and make for an upgraded experience in the nuclear wastes.

Equip your plasma rifle and don your power armor; we’re venturing into the unknown. Keep an eye peeled for Deathclaws!

    The combat system is a bit flawed, especially in that every melee weapon feels super floaty. I always gravitated towards the guns in my playthrough because at least with the laser and sniper rifles I could actually think I legitimately hit something.

    Also with the worlds, I think New Vegas did a good job of showing off your idea. In the Mojave you had the exclusive strip, the outskirts of it, Red Rock, and Mt. Charleston. Everything had a little niche to it, and they even managed to give the ghouls a little funny story next to Nipton.

    I think if they could expand on that it would be great, and the technology now could up the scale even more. And I don't want to hear about anyone complaining about how the world should be a barren landscape when New Vegas was able to show us colors, and differentiate from the staleness using Mt. Charleston and Zion.

    Exactly! New Vegas showed there was color and life in the Wasteland, especially if you downloaded some mods which brought out the color. There was even the Vault where there were plants growing everywhere!

    It can be done. The question is will Bethesda do it? Fallout 3 really felt like a barren landscape devoid of life and personality, while New Vegas was the opposite. Obsidian and Bethesda together could probably compensate for each other's flaws and make one awesome game!
