I know I’m in good company when I say Fallout: New Vegas is one of the greatest games of all time. It’s quest and story structure, it’s capacity for choice, it’s next level writing and characters, all come together to make a gem out of a ramshackle bucket of bolts that barely held together. Obsidian’s tweet today has literally been the best news of 2020 for me. I cannot wait to see what the writers at obsidian can do with next gen bethesda world building.
But just because I love that tweet doesn’t mean I love the idea of new Vegas 2 as such. None of the fallout games, even as they’ve occasionally returned to places from previous games (I honestly haven’t played 1 or 2 so this is from my memory of story summaries), just made a new game in exactly the same area as the previous game. New Vegas made mention of plenty of fallout 1 and 2 areas, but it made something new too. I want something new again.
I honestly don’t want to find out what exactly happened after the Courier walked his long road, I don’t want to know if House is building to go to the moon or the NCR has annexed it or we’re hailing Caesar or if it’s a zombie sex fueled anarchist paradise. Let new Vegas have the future the courier created, and give us a new world to make or unmake.
However, that doesn’t mean just have obsidian make another fallout game in a random place and basically continue the numbered line in lieu of Bethesda. I think one of the great things Obsidian was able to do was go back to the rich history and lore interplay had previously developed on the west coast. I want to continue that path, but this game should be so much more than the Nevada desert. There’s a reason so many films are in California, and it’s because it has the greatest breadth and diversity of environments anywhere in North America. From beaches to mountains, grasslands to desert, cities to villages, let’s see fallout new Hollywood, or Francisco, or Angeles hell head north up the west coast and show us some Canadians in new Portland or Seattle (the latter may be particularly welcomed by their new overlords).
Anyhoo, that’s my rant. To be clear even if we get a new Vegas 2 that starts with the courier getting shot in the head again and everything he did goes to shit and he has to start over I’ll love that too. Just wanted to share my thoughts.
- The issue with the whole ‘Bethesda ignores New Vegas’ narrative
- Today marks the 10th anniversary of Fallout New Vegas!
- As good as FNV is, I don’t think it’s as good as people claim.
