Regarding Fallout, I also believe New Vegas was brilliant. The writing, the dialogs, the side quests! Each companion had an interesting story and quests associated with them. The dialogs were engaging (with speech skill and some perks greatly influencing gameplay) and often funny.

While playing Skyrim, after I while I started noticing what's missing. The dialogs weren't any fun, including the dialog options. The speech skill was useless. Side quests were mostly rather uninspired. And I'm bored! And New Vegas... I keep returning to it and always find something cool. The DLCs were also pretty nice.

So yeah, Bethesda, please hire Obsidian to do Fallout 4. Maybe while Obsidian would work on Fallout 4, Bethesda could focus on the new Elder Scrolls game. That would be pretty good, wouldn't it?

I'd love to see another Obsidian Fallout game but an Obsidian Elder Scrolls game could be really interesting too. The ES series actually has a lot of interesting lore. Now it just needs compelling character and quest writing.
