Bethesda responds to Fallout 3 critcisms


Fallout 3 executive producer Todd Howard has responded to criticisms of the post-apocalyptic RPG that MTV drew to his attention.

They are as follows:

  1. Criticism: “Fallout 3″ is just mediocre when judged as a first person shooter

    Howard: Agreed.

  2. Criticism: The ending isn’t very satisfying and much shorter than other “Fallout” endings

    Howard: Based on the feedback I’ve seen, most people are pissed off that it ends, not the ‘ending’ itself. Maybe that’s one and the same, I don’t know. That’s another thing we’re changing in DLC3 [downloadable content #3, "Broken Steel"]. We really underestimated how many people would want to keep playing, so that’s probably the last time we’ll do something like that.

  3. Criticism: V.A.T.S. is boring once you’re accurate enough to head shot everyone

    Howard: Depends on what you find entertaining. I like to blow people’s heads off, so, well, it never got old for me. I agree that the ‘to hit chance’ for head shots is probably too high.

We're with Howard on that last one. How exploding headshots can get boring is anyone's guess, but there you go.
