Obligatory: I liked Fallout 3 better But yeah, when it comes down to it Bethesda is one of the few companies making games I actually enjoyed playing. Lots of time spent in Fallout 3 and NV with tons of mods. Though I gotta say.. the next game by Beth better be 64bit trough and through and not use Gamebryo

Fallout 3 is one of the few games where I've actually had my attention locked to it from beginning to end. It was a great story. New Vegas was good but not great and riddled with annoying bugs that made it pretty obvious that Bethesda didn't make it (Obsidian has a habit of taking their stuff to about 85-90% of the way to perfect and then going, "Meh. Good enough!").

But whatever Bethesda does next I can almost guarantee you they won't be killing off Gamebryo. Even if they take it 64 bit, even if they rewrite a lot of aspects to drag it kicking and screaming into the next generation I am sure they'll be sticking with it (under different names, of course). They're not a burn it to the ground and start over sort of developer. But then very few are.

Funny, I feel like Bethesda games are 85-90% complete (if that much). I love the original Fallout games, and I liked Fallout 3. I thought it was a good story in the Fallout universe, but I felt it was half a assed attempt by someone that never played the originals. Maybe they read a strategy guide of Fallout and thought they could do a good enough job.

The world was beautiful in a post apocalyptic way, but it was little things like the weapons using the wrong ammo and finding fully stocked grocery stores yards away from towns/camps. Seriously, did no one think to go loot that place in 200 years? Ammo was weightless and there was way too much pre-war food, which served no purpose in the game. It did have minor healing properties, but you couldn't walk two feet in the game without tripping over a stimpak. Fallout 3 was a good story in the Fallout universe, but a poorly balanced game.
