Me too. I don't play Fallout for the latest and greatest graphics. I play for the story and the side stories and the incredible locations and characters.

Not to mention the freedom. Anytime a game offers this huge amount of customization and sandboxing, it comes at the expense of a bit of graphics. Modders will always be there for power PC gamers who have rigs able to handle intense graphics, but as someone with a pretty mediocre laptop I'm more excited that the game will actually be able to run on my computer.

AAA title shouldn't have to sacrifice graphics. Maybe Potatostation or peasontbox, but come on.

Oh, yeah. I'm trying to build my own desktop PC so I can start modding Bethesda games. That, and I'm getting sick of waiting forever on Xbox.

Witcher 3 breaks that rule.

My only beef with Bethesda is their character animations. Ever since Morrowind they've stuck out to me.

Yes, the animations on the Gamebryo engine are abysmal. It's pretty much my only really huge complaint about FO3 and NV. Actually, that, and the hit detection with regards to geometry. Nothing like shooting that rock in front of you that you took cover behind even though you're clearly aiming over it.

From what I've seen from the footage released so far, the animations seem at least slightly better than in the previous Fallouts at least.

Either way, I'll still have a blast with the game, but yeah, the animations have always been one of the weakest elements.

Hopefully they'll improve with Fo4.

Animations in Morrowind were bad even for their time.

Plus if you really want those graphics, use mods! Get the best of all worlds!

Same here. I usually don't play games for their graphics. I play games for thier gameplay, openness, replayablity and both the development and mod community behind them.

Look at Minecraft. The game has TERRIBLE graphics, but yet remains the most downloaded game on the planet and has one of the largest player bases and mod communities around.

That proves it, right there, that graphics don't mean squat if the game doesn't have the gameplay that people are looking for.

You have to admit that Minecraft looks pretty good for being made up of just voxels.
