I've logged tons of time into Oblivion and Skyrim but at its core, I gotta say the melee is pretty poor. Mid to late game everything devolves into a battle between tanked up damage sponges. It becomes much less exciting at that point. Fallout's reboot as an FPS however, I feel has turned out pretty well. Weapons feel different enough to warrant using. Damage dealt by me and my enemies always feels significant. Leveling doesn't just increase my stat numbers; the perks are different enough to allow very different approaches to gameplay. Any problems I had with it tended to be on the technical side. Crashes, load-screen loops, corrupt data, irregular enemy movement, etc. Those however, are all things that can be fixed. It just seems to me like Fallout's flaws are less fundamental than TES's. I think it's a bit easier to improve the technical side, than to reimagine combat from the ground up. For that reason I don't see any more TES games going anywhere terribly interesting. I'm much more curious to see what they'd do with a Fallout sequel.
As many of you may know there have been many rumors about Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls 6. So I am wondering what do you the fans want to come out first. Fallout 4 or Elder Scrolls 6? Personally I want a new Fallout. Now before you go saying things like "Why Skyrim was awesome, make another Elder Scrolls game" let me explain to you my reasons. 1) A Fallout hasn't been made since 2010 (2008 if you don't count New Vegas since it wasn't made by Bethesda) 2) Bethesda's last game was Skyrim it would only make sense to do a Fallout game next so Elder scroll doesn't get boring. 3) Fans have been teased, lied to, and not told anything about the next Fallout. After all the hoaxes our faith in a new Fallout is dwindling. A nice little thirty second teaser trailer for Fallout 4 would be nice or for Elder Scrolls 6.
