Fallout 4 is one of the most hyped games in recent memory- and as this generation has just us, that is not always necessarily a good thing. A lot of hyped games often end up disappointing, and while Bethesda has an impeccable track record, all bets are off when a game is as hyped and anxiously awaited as Fallout 4 is- what if the game does indeed end up disappointing?
Well, it won’t, not if Bethesda has anything to say about it. Speaking to The Examiner, Bethesda’s Pete Hines said that the team is doing its very best to deliver on the game’s promise from its E3 debut.
“Truthfully, I hope to be able to say we ended up delivering on and executing on the promise that we showed in the [E3] showcase,” he said.” Right? Because that is what the showcase is about: the promise and the possibility of what Fallout 4 could be. If we don’t deliver on all of that stuff, then that showcase in a lot of ways was just a waste of time. It was much adieu about nothing if we failed to live up to the potential of what all those games can be. I hope in a year, what we’re talking about is “last year was about the potential and wow, look what you guys did. Look how great Fallout 4 was, look how popular DOOM was, what a great reception Dishonored 2 received.” That’s where I want us to be.”
Fallout 4 is now only a month away from release, so we will know pretty soon regardless- but something tells me Bethesda doesn’t have much to worry about.
