New Vegas doesn't exist without Fallout 3.

And Fallout 3 doesn't exist without...

People need to stop using the "Obsidian only built upon Bethesda foundations" line. It's bullshit. Just stop.

I can't believe people are seriously trying to argue this. New Vegas was absolutely built off of Fallout 3. They made an expansion pack the size of a full game, they didn't make the entire game from the ground up themselves.

Obsidian took Bethesda's clay and sculpted it into something amazing, something a lot of people prefer over Bethesda's sculpture they made with their own clay. But here's the thing: Obsidian doesn't know how to make the clay, they only know how to sculpt it really well. And that's ok.

More than ok even, because it means we could have another situation where we get a Bethesda made Fallout for the people that liked Falllout 3 better, and then an Obsidian Fallout for the New Vegas fans.

We can all co-exist here, it doesn't always have to be about which 3D Fallout is better. Fallout 3 and New Vegas play to different strengths, and they focus on different things. Some people put more importance on the things Fo3 does well, and some put more importance on what New Vegas does well.

@sweep: According to ATLUS and Sony Persona 5 is coming stateside in 2015, so you don't have to!

Anyone else find this thread a bit disgusting? A man is dead, is it really appropriate to be making light of that?

1. Yes, absolutely. Yes.

2. I would, but I only have it on ps4 :(

I got Destiny when it came out because I was a huge fan of Halo: CE and Halo 2 but I defected to the Playstation ecosystem (tm) last gen, and I couldn't wait to get back into that Bungie goodness. Needless to say it was a bit of a huge disappointment.

The shooting is good though.

Hope you like it!

Brad is bad at arguing, news at 11

I'd say he's too good. He can turn a bad argument into a weapon if he has too. He usually wins because he doesn't give up.

That doesn't mean he's good at arguing, that means he's good at being stubborn. That's not an impressive skill.

At the very least I think Alex should be lauded for putting up an intense fight to keep that garbage off the list. It was a good effort.

Is Destiny garbage now? Give me a break.

Ok, garbage is admittedly a bit harsh, but let's not kid ourselves here. Destiny isn't a great game, nor is it a good game, it's barely a passable game, only saved from garbage status by its art, raids, and basic shooting and movement mechanics. Compared to other modern shooters it has mediocre level design, abysmal encounter design, low enemy variety (all bosses are just larger regular enemies), terrible plot and story, basically no actual characters, madness-inducing grinding, a confusingly low amount of content, and take it or leave it PvP.

There are definitely some redeeming things about Destiny, but there is SO much wrong with it. It just doesn't belong on a top 10 list in place of games without such glaring, infuriating issues.

@truthtellah: She also lists "extra toes" alongside the transgender remark. I think the point of that whole quip was that those are all things that would be viewed as scandalous in Orlesian high society. I don't think she was directly insulting those people, just highlighting how different the nobles are from their projected images. In other words she's poking fun at the dissonance itself, not the individual aspects she lists.

Glad that there is actually a useful post in here after several excellent and entirely appropriate responses.

... Did you say "nerd"?

What long-winded babble!

You make no sense!

I thought it was common knowledge that the best new character in Inquisition was Scout Harding.

Seriously though I'm just happy they gave Dragon Age the time of day as it's my personal GOTY, and pretty much every other category and top ten list this year has been dominated by stuff I didn't care for or didn't play.
