They aren't for you then. Also Bethesda games aren't played for the stories.


Then what are they played for?

@jubjub360

Their massive open worlds and for the exploration. I spent 60 hours in Fallout 3 doing nothing but exploring buildings, sewers and destroyed cities before ever starting the story. I had a blast just doing this and the side Quests were fun.

I enjoyed those small moments when I'd randomly find an old town being attacked by Mutants and after I killed them all a kid came to me and thanked me but then I found out his only family member was killed. So then I found him a new home and my good deed spread across the lore of the game and I heard about myself on the Radio in the game.

All of those small things add up to a grand experience. That's why I had over 200 hours in FO3 on one character.

Weird. I played Skyrim, Oblivion, and the Fallout series for that and the story.

Well, you certainly can play NEW VEGAS for the story, but with Fallout 3 and the ES games, its all about the gameplay/open world.

ES games have pretty good background lore though.

Always played a steath/archer character, so I find the combat satisfying. Sure, hack n slash isn't upto scratch, but everything else the word offers sure as hell makes up for it.

FO3 story wasn't all that great to me. It was about you finding daddy and saving the water. Lol

well the overall combat in skyrim doesn't really have much depth and the story in skyrim for most of the main quest is a bit generic.(except for Thieves guild and dark brotherhood) but the game strongest point is the exploration.
I'm a gamer dang it, not a pc gamer or a console gamer, just a gamer.
