    Bethesda claiming their modding community is uniquely the oldest in the industry when half life came out 4 years before morrowind...

  • Pierre LeDouche
    Pierre LeDouche 14 days ago

    The strongest thing I can say about the quality of these Noclip docus is that even when they cover the development of games I've never given a rat's ass about (Fallout anything, Elder Scrolls anything) I still find the vids fascinating and hugely entertaining. Always professional, always relevant, this is some of the best game journalism you will ever see.
    Having said that, back in the 90s I did play Terminator: Future Shock, and Terminator: Skynet and loved them both. Something I'm not sure I'm correct about is that the first appearance of the aiming red dot or reticle on the screen was with Future Shock. Before that, in Doom and Doom II and the like, there was no aiming reticle, no aiming down the sights, just a more or less primitive version of aim assist that got you there if you pointed your weapon in the right direction. I also remember seeing some developer notes on the nascent Duke Nukem (the first) that they added in an aiming reticle "like TFS". And once Duke Nukem hit it big it was par for the course until other games started letting you aim down the sights, a la Call of Duty 2 and others. I remember all this stuff so well because I came late to both the PC world and PC gaming. When Doom II came out I was a 30 year old police officer with a wife and kid. Duke Nukem and others, even older. There's always a tremendous feeling of nostalgia for me whenever I watch these Noclip vids, because they delve into the history of both games and game creators. I don't think I'd even thought about Terminator:Future Shock for decades until I watched this video.

    They also polish old assets, in order to show them as a new game, insuring pre-orders and hype. sorry but to use fallout 4's buggy engine and all its assets and claim its a new engine ect is in my mind a form of defrauding someone of their money .

      I'm glad they were able to speak about their bugs, but to be honest I have no plans on purchasing future games from them until they get at least a little better and ironing these things out. I love Fallout and have for many years and even enjoyed Skyrim, but I'm a little over their work for now.

    "Have we bitten off more then we can chew? Of course. But I would rather shoot for it and see where we end up then be safe."

    That might explain what happened to 76. Or I could be completely wrong and it was just Bethesda being lazy, truthfully I don't know. But either way that's quite a thing to say.

    Talking about Elder Scroll without Julian LeFay, Ted Peterson and Chris Weaver and putting on spot Toad Howard meh... Not a great documentary just a cult of personality, RedGuard was the moment when Elder scrolls was "stolen" from the original creators... Todd saying that Daggerfall was not that immersive, and saying Redguard was better in that regard... putting his bad game design in a piedestal... sad... this documentary is not one, it's just hidden publicity for Bethesda+Zenimax.
    Go check the work of @IndigoGaming you'll learn more about those franchise :)

    It is not an exaggeration to say that I played Fallout 3 steadily for more than two years, simply to try out different aspects of karma, tweak interactions with the NPCs, etc. One of the most enjoyable gaming experiences I've ever had. Bravo, Bethesda.

  • youngjdef
    youngjdef 2 months ago

    53:20 "We KNOW it sucks" this just details the entire problem with Bethesda's mindset from the beginning. They've resigned themselves to the game "sucking" at first then eventually fixing it via patches and updates and support from the community.

    Hopefully the recent mess will let them reevaluate their thinking. It's great to have a community that will continue working on the game you release, but you, as a developer, still need to feel that the game is finished before releasing it.

    I really just think all the praise they've received over the years went to their head and it made them lazy. If they can take an honest look at themselves they might be able to turn it around for the next game.

    I don't think they're evil, I think they've just given in to the trappings of human nature.

    If you can humble yourself, reevaluate your approach and the relationship with your customers, it IS recoverable - but at the end of the day you will be judged on the quality of your final product.

  • gamer taboo
    gamer taboo 2 months ago +1

    I would love to see insider footage like this during a time like this for Bethesda, where fans are pissed off because all these things have sort been building towards this crescendo. Like how do they handle it inside? Because often all we get is silence from the devs, or very obvious corporate speak. When you watch this you see a more human side to the devs, but when this stuff happens it's the exact opposite. It's hard to imagine what they're doing internally. Like I wonder honestly if this team in the video above had much to do with FO76 or the shady decisions like the nylon bag ripoff, etc, as I'd wager they are knee deep into their next big triple A. But they still take the flak. And if so, who is this other team that pushed out FO76 and why. Like their decisions lately haven't made a ton of sense, really seems like bad management.

  • Exka

    Someone should tell them about the Half-Life 1 and 2 modding communities, if they think that their mediocre games have the biggest, oldest or the most unique modding community. Who gives a fuck about massive jiggling boobs for anime babe characters, unless you're some teenage boy masturbating furiously. Also fuck that Todd Howard guy. Morrowind was a good game with an excellent and captivating plot but I guess that's pointless, when you can have so many endless and flavorless quests, boring story, idiotic characters and stupid kill animations.

  • TheCybercoco
    TheCybercoco 3 months ago

    The conclusion here is telling. So I guess it isn't unreasonable to conclude that perhaps things have become less meaningful for the team that has resulted in less than average work. Either that or the lack of skills to accomplish it. I can't imagine what they were thinking when they thought that tech that was designed for single player use would translate well for multiplayer use. They were kind of screwed from the get go. It was the perfect time for new engine, and they were either too lazy or cheap to do it. It does not show much care in their work. Their ambition has been respectable in the past (and why we forgive so many bugs and issues), but their latest project betrays everything that the company's reputation was made from. Hope they can turn things around.

  • Corey Slade
    Corey Slade 3 months ago

    Considering how it partially resulted in the Voice Actors strike we had, I hope they have made some changes about that whole need for over the top secrecy thing. I can't help thinking that you would get a better performance out of Voice actors who know what they're working on, even aside from the unfair bargaining tactics involved with hiding the scope and size of the project from them when they are negotiating their contracts.
    Aside from that, this was a fantastic documentary, and really made me like these guys a lot more than I did before, keep up the great work!

      Rozzelcopter also I don't think anyone has addressed this but it feels like the only ones working on fallout 76 is Bethesda games studios in Austin. Bethesda has three studios one in Rockville (Todd's team) one in Canada and one in Austin. I can't remember where I heard but I did hear that only Austin was working on it cause zenimax wanted money. It makes a lot of sense cause Todd's team has to be 100 percent knees deep in starfield that they don't have time for fallout 76. And I bet Austin doesn't know the creation engine as well as Todd's team. say what u will sure Bethesda games have bugs but after a few patched they are pretty much set. I mean look at all the Witcher games they all had a ton a bugs at launch same with assassin's Creed origins and Odyssey it's just the nature of open world games

    • Rozzelcopter
      Rozzelcopter Month ago

      Bethesda Softworks, that's what happened. Fallout 76 is to Bethesda Softworks as Destiny is to Activision. Rushed out for money while ending up heavily ridiculed with little replayability. Destiny may be better on many fronts but they're still eerily similar. BGS did as they were told. They tried to do what they could but was restricted to Bethesda Softworks forcing a push, and release, of the project. That's how it is with big publishers like Activision and EA.

    15:52 I am part of that contingent of fans that still insists Morrorwind was the high point. Not a perfect game by any means (That leveling system is painful) but that "Stranger in a strange land" sense of exploration is amazing. I've always felt that Oblivion gave up too much to get the game working on consoles and appealing to a mass market audience (and every game since, progressively more so). I am not against streamlining in general, but I think a lot of depth was lost with the complexity and I am not sure everything that was given up needed to be.
    Maybe the more mixed fan reception of FO4 followed by the actual decline of sales and critical reception for FO76 will give Bethesda another ultimatum like they had before Morrowind. I think Bethesda has focused on creating lovely worlds, but they have abandoned the immersive roleplaying aspect. I always got the feeling that the devs are shoving things in until the last second, and I have appreciated that, but maybe Bethesda needs to get some people focusing on the fun earlier in development.

    So here's my opinion and I understand that other people feel differently about the topic, but allow me to express my feelings, please.
    I'm irritated to see and hear how much everyone at Bethesda seems to have their heads up their own asses. There's no humility in anything they say and even when they talk about things that are nothing special at all, they praise themselves on it like they invented a cure for cancer.
    They live in a bubble, completely isolating themselves from the realities happening outside, is the impression I get.
    Their games are really mostly mediocre, with the only impressive aspect being the scale, the amounts of items, NPCs, monsters and quests. But each individual thing actually borders on barely sufficient. The textures, models and animations are often crude compared to the competition. The combat and magic systems are uninspired/generic. Movement and interaction with the world feel clumsy. The stealth system is ridiculous (hiding in plain sight in the middle of an empty, brightly lit room). The stories are never intriguing or touching. The dungeons are too formulaic to give a feeling of adventure. And all of their games quickly start feeling stale unless you add mods.
    Money and success got to their heads, leaving them unable to reflect in the light of realism. It's sad!

    They have made good games with so funny bugs but I think it‘s time for big changes and a new propper working engine.

    God of War (2018) is the first game to take Oblivions place as the best game ever made in my opinion. The Witcher 3 was very close. King for TWELVE YEARS.

      Maybe because he's a lying snake out there to trick people like you? But sure, it's not fair to blame just him.

    Seems this documentary panders to Bethesda rather than the audience as some very important info about Bethesda misdealings with Obsidian were completely glossed over... 18 months to complete a Fallout game! And the millions of dollars Bethesda cheated Obsidian out of because of the low score on Metacritic! You guys need to do a Documentary on Obsidian/InXile/Troika/Black Isle Studios/Interplay. Those guys are the real heroes of the gaming industry.

      Obsidian didn’t even get a low score on metacritic. They got a score of 84%. Bethesda wanted a score of 85%. They missed it by 1 fricking %. Can you believe it.

    "You can do practically anything with a Fallout game" Like re-use assets from one genre and pop into a totally unrelated genre? "We put everything into these games" - Like crap loads of game breaking bugs?

      +radialdrift it's matter of taste and the feeling, nothing more. I don't expect anything big anymore, I just let them do what they want, and if I'm satisfied, thats more than enough. However I agree that Todd has told many lies, and I don't put my trust on Bethesda that much, that way I wont get dissapointed over and over again.
      And yes, I have played the previous games of Fallout, believe or not, and I find the latest one to be my liking and surprisingly good, which got me addicted quite badly....I don't need medals for that, but I also don't exclude the idea that they might redeem themselves later, if the upcoming games are good enough after FO 76, which was very dissapointing....but you can't expect every game to be a huge hit. Hopefully, they make up something better but we shall see.

      +Joosek Michael Wow, you had a great experience. Do you want a medal? Fallout 4 was a pile of crap. Recycled story from 3, zero consequences, (i gather you haven't played the previous games) piss poor combat to cater to console gamers, instead of focusing on the core PC gamers that built the franchise. Bethesda have been a shit developer for a long time but have gotten a free ride. Finally they are getting their just desserts. Hopefully Howard gets sacked for his constant lies.

      There's people who appreciate tiny things, and people who simply sees nothing but the negative....My Fallout 4 haven't got much of any of game breaking bugs, and I play on PS4 for crying out loud.
