Level increase for Fallout 3 would throw it out of balance, says Bethesda

Bethesda’s Jeff Gardiner has said that a level cap increase for Fallout 3 would throw the game out of balance, therefore, one will not see their character higher than a level 30 any time soon.

“I know from the outside this seems like a fairly simple proposition [for a level increase], but doing this could unbalance the game in a variety of ways,” he told MTV.

He continued saying that the games was designed to be replayed several times as a variety of characters, so for fun, just play one of those.

    He is right….
    My main character hit level 30, and the only thing he isnt maxed out on is unarmed. I can pretty much take on anything and be ok.
    I play the Xbox version but got the PC version the other for cheap to compare it. It looks amazing on the PC with a high end card. However, I’m glad i played the 360 version through first with all the relased DLC so far. With the PC version its just too easy to bring up the console and cheat, and it ruins the expierence of the game.
