I’ve just finished playing Fallout 3 and I’ve been thinking about what did and didn’t work for me. I’m not sure if I’ll post a review since others have already covered it quite comprehensively. So I thought I’d ask a different question.
In reviews we often focus on the things that a game does wrong. I wanted to avoid that path and concentrate on the things that are right. So I ask myself the question, “If you had your dream CRPG, combining all the best bits of every game you’d played before, what would it include?” I want to stick to things that we already know can be done, rather than pie-in-the-sky “wouldn’t it be nice…” features.
Here’s a few ideas I’ve come up with so far. If you have any other suggestions, I’d like to hear them.
