Now that we've got most of Skyrim nailed, it's time to start looking at the next open-world RPG on the horizon. Fallout 4 hasn't been announced, but it remains as inevitable as the next Call of Duty game. We've poured more hours than we'd like to admit into the Fallout series, which theoretically puts us in a good position to start loudly shouting about what we want to see next. On that note, here's our wishlist for Fallout 4.
GET OBSIDIAN INVOLVED
Following on from the cash-bonus debacle that recently soured memories of Fallout: New Vegas, this dream isn't looking likely at all. Obsidian would be mental to take the same deal again, and it doesn't seem like Bethesda are a company willing to be all that charitable. It's a great shame too, because Obsidian's work on Fallout has been substantially better. New Vegas was plagued by bugs and glitches, but that's mainly the fault of the wonky Fallout 3 engine. Combine that with a much faster turn-around time, and it's fair to say that New Vegas was a stunning achievement.
It wasn't until the release of Old World Blues that the importance of Obsidian really became clear. Smart, dark, and laugh-out-loud funny - this DLC adventure was a better Fallout game than the entirety of Fallout 3. Bethesda created something technically wonderful, but didn't quite manage to capture Fallout's wry sense of humour. Obsidian knows Fallout better, and it would be fantastic to see them involved.
NO FLIPPING CAZADORS
We all want the wastelands to be dangerous and scary, but these bug-bastards took things too far. Tiny, nippy, and poisonous as hell, these chaps felt like a proper dick-move. Deathclaws are equally nasty, but at least you can spot them from half a mile away.
