i would go for fallout 4, but it needs to be more like fallout3 the story for new vegas didnt really hook me. i would like to see them do it somewhere like new york city, bring back the subways and have all kinds of crazy locations. when i saw the new vegas trailer i thought it was gonna be great a plce with the power back and all, but the story wasnt as good. i think there were just to manyy choices in to many different places, and the tribe system. i walked in to the wrong place just exploring than had to kill everyone and missed out on some missions.
Fallout New Vegas didn't click with me either. I ended up selling my game a few months back, no regrets there. I got a much better feel out of Fallout 3 though.
Just the exploration and map overall, was a lot better.
The story as well.
The FO NV story was weak, but imo that was Ok. I had massive fun in that game. To me, it was all about running around with dynamite blowing random things and people up.
I can never forget the massive heart attack at my first time i discovered quarry junction.
Me, Cass and Rex ran into the quarry. The deathclaws started to chase cass. She was killed in 1 swipe of the thing. I was like "AH HECK NAH IM OUT OF HERE!", so i ran toward black mountain. I was then stopped by Neil the mutant, and told about the mountain. He was killed by the deathclaw and so was i. Lol.
I think it will happen and be amazing. I bet they were just waiting for a new console. 2 Fallout Games a console gen is fine by me if both are very well made.
It would be awesome to get fallout 4 and a spin off. (Like Fallout 3 and its spin off New Vegas).
Id also think it would be cool to get a random online Fallout game during this gen as well. BUT, not if it interfears with at least 2 single player FO games.
I definately want a 4... but the engine has to be made by someone else than Bethesda... try the Unreal Engine or idTech5
