It's not really a formula if there's only one questionable example of it (Fallout). You're also conveniently forgetting that Interplay was already ruining the Fallout brand long before Bethesda bought it. Remember Fallout Tactics? How about Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel? Or the canceled Van Buren? Or Fallout Online? Bethesda's purchase of the IP resulted in New Vegas, which is a far better outcome than anything Interplay was doing with the series.

Fallout Tactics wasn't that bad. It was an action RPG and was never was meant to be a story heavy, choice and consequences type RPG. I bought it a few years ago on GOG for a few bucks. I actually enjoyed it, but I went into not expecting it to be on the same level as Fallout and Fallout 2. A lot of story content from Van Buren made its way into Fallout New Vegas. After that, Interplay was just a name only. The founders and employees responsible for all of their good games had left, and the asshats that bought the Interplay name are the ones responsible for the console shovelware Fallout: BOS and Fallout Online.

The head-scratching decision to call this game "Prey" aside, it looks like it has the potential to be good. Waiting for reviews/Let's Plays.

Their insistence to call this game "Prey" reminds when MS insisted that the FPS game be called "Shadowrun" when, in fact, it was nothing like the original. Shadowrun, while a decent MP game, failed due to labeling a well loved IP something that should never have been. Unless Prey is something amazing, I predict its imminent failure as well.

That's not a good analogy at all. Shadowrun was an established IP before the FPS was released. In addition, it was an established RPG series. As such, there were a lot of expectations attached to the name and a multiplayer FPS was not one of them.

There was one Prey game before this one and it wasn't exactly a big critical or commercial hit. The vast majority of potential players have neither played nor heard of the original game. Even if you have, both games still belong to the same genre (FPS) so that's already a much smaller leap than your Shadowrun example.

People really give too much weight to the Prey name. It's not even remotely as relevant as they seem to think.

Isn't that the Bethesda formula? Create an unrelated game that could stand on its own, but instead they buy a popular IP and slap its name on it and basically ruin both.

Prey is a cool name and very few people are familiar with the original title, so why not use the same name again? They probably want to start a new franchise with an iconic name and why shouldn't they? Come up with another good name for this game's premise if it's so easy.

@ Fishingtime

I see your point. And, I've been playing PC games for over twenty years now. In the midst of watching one of the game play pieces of footage (it was a capture of the first 35 minutes of the game), I must confess I was bored with what I saw. I wanna be wowed during an introduction. I want to be inspired during an introduction. Neither of these emotions struck me while watching the footage. Also, there wasn't one game play feature that sparked my interest---it was total "been there before, nothing new" content. 35 minutes into a game provides plenty of time to show something innovative and creative, neither of which took place during the play and scenery. Really sad there are some developers out their lacking in innovative vision.

hmm, I don't know about that. Not all good games need to start with a flashy intro, especially if the point is to create atmosphere...

Agreed, 43 and gaming since the vic20. In this day & age i can't see myself being wowed or inspired by a game and i don't need that to form an objective view/impression/opinion.

Entirely. The sense of "wow" mostly died in my early 20s. I still love most games I play, though.

The only thing that's making me meh so far about this title is that the enemies/aliens all look the same and might get boring in a hurry. Gameplay wise, they are excellent at allowing you to just get through a level whatever way you want, and it's always a lot of fun in their games.

Surprised at the apathy toward this game. It's made by people who made Dishonored, Deus Ex, Dark Messiah, Arx Fatalis, and is continuing the Looking Glass design legacy. I'm expecting it to be good and really don't care what the title is.

Well said. I'm looking forward to it.

Really? How many games let you morph into environmental objects and then use your newfound form to open up traversal or stealth opportunities? How many games let you shoot projectiles that solidify and can be used to incapacitate enemies or create platforms? And these are just the two features that have been shown off frequently.

I was under the impression it was more like a spiritual successor to System Shock, but that name is taken and SS3 is being made by former LGS guys.. I'll wait for the reviews too, if they nailed the atmosphere i'll get it definitely.

I'm actually a bit surprised the recommended specs are only a GTX 970. That's the equivalent of a $200 video card these days. It's surprisingly affordable.

It's a great card, and more than powerful enough to run titles designed to run on console hardware.

To be honest, I've seen 2 previews from Gronkh (German youtube let's player) and liked what I saw... tons of gameplay variations later on as well, tons of interesting stuff to discover in the maps (and that was just the first 2 hours..)

Prey is essentially a corridor shooter, so I wouldn't expect it to be very demanding. Still weird that they're using CryEngine instead of Bethesda's own id Tech 6 but I'm guessing development started before id Tech 6 was ready.
