Fallout 3 "better" than Oblivion, says Bethesda

Pete Hines, Vice President of Bethesda Softworks, has stated that he believes the company’s upcoming post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 3 is a “better” game than The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

"I don't have any doubts that on the whole, and I think this is a belief universally shared on the team that Fallout is a better game," Hines told Videogamer.com.

"But we're also not oblivious to the fact that we have a lot of extra baggage that we're carrying, being the guys picking up this franchise, that are re-imagining this series from 10 years ago, and there's something that comes along with that. We're very well aware of what we're up against."

"I have no doubts in my mind that, at its core and for everything that it provides that Fallout is a better game than Oblivion was. For sure,” said Hines.

Oblivion was met with critical and commercial success upon its release on Xbox 360 and PC in 2006, spawning two official expansion packs and numerous other downloadable content. The RPG eventually made its way to PS3 the following year.

Fallout 3 is scheduled for release later this year on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
