I was just thinking about this while playing Fallout 3. I feel that while sure a remake for either game would be cool, it’s just not what I, and I feel like most people, actually want.
I feel the right way to go about this would be to remaster both games and include mod support. And here’s why I feel this way as opposed to getting full remakes
I wouldn’t want to have 3 and NV assets to be replaced with 4s assets. I just didn’t care for the style of a lot of the Fallout 4 redesigns. I personally prefer the style and designs of the assets from the older games as they feel more gritty and realistic, it adds such are darker underlying tone/atmosphere to those games that I feel 4 just didn’t have
There would be more space for mods and a wider mod selection available immediately. This is just simple, if the games were remastered then they would have more reserved space available for mods on console along with majority of the currently available mods. For example Skyrim has 8GBs reserved where Fallout 4 only has 4GBs of free space. If the games where remakes then it stands to be believed that the amount of free space for console mods would be significantly lower than if they were remastered. Also with a remaster most existing mods would already be available where a remake would require new mods.
Remakes are prone to change things that we might love about the games. Things like voice actors, locations and story points would all be changed with a remake and some would likely not be for the better. Imagine Fallout 3 without Liam Neeson as Dad and someone else doing the voice of Three Dog, it just wouldn’t feel right. Same with Mr. House, Doc Mitchell and Mr. New Vegas with a New Vegas remake.
Lastly, I can’t speak for everyone but personally I don’t mind the clunky feel of 3 and New Vegas. Sure it could easily be tweaked to feel better but I certainly have never complained. And most issues like 3 not having proper iron sights could easily be remedied with a remaster, or with mods. I just feel a remake for either game would be unnecessary, though I guess I could understand a New Vegas remake given how much got cut from the game given their time restraints.
Edit: It’s also good to point out that a remaster would cost significantly less than a remake, likely around $30-$40 whereas a remake would likely cost the same as a new game, and with next gen games being $70 I definitely don’t think many people would want to shell out that kind of money for it, and even on current gen $60 still sounds steep (IMO)

- Friendly reminder that you can like a given Fallout title for different reasons
- As good as FNV is, I don’t think it’s as good as people claim.
