    Bethesda should consider a superhero rpg...

    I think Bethesda should create a third sandbox rpg game series to compliment Elder Scrolls (which they may not even do anymore now that Zenimax has made an MMO out of that IP) and Fallout. I think that hypothetical third rpg game series should be based in the superhero genre. Would you play such a game?

    Until Bethesda can make melee combat not look like total shit, no they shouldn't be touching a super hero theme with a 10 foot pole.

    The gunplay in fallout 4 did a good job of covering up their terrible combat system. Bethesda needs to invest in animators using 2016 technology and not 1999 shit. Their animation is literally the same as morrowind so long ago which also had bad animation for it's time.

    Animation looking legit is pretty key to any super hero game feeling legit.

    HAhaha no, it'd be riddled with bugs and framedrops to sustain even a super ability from any character.
    Cod has a new campaign, new weapons, new multiplayer levels every year. Zelda has been recycling the same weapons, villains, and dungeons since the 80's. Zelda recycles enough to make cod blush. The same weapons, villains, dungeons, and princess in every single Zelda for the most part. It's almost as cheesy as bowser vs Mario round 35

    I would love to see an open world sandbox superhero RPG.

    Hell, more superhero games period would be nice.
    Some would ask
    "How could a perfect God create a universe with so much that is evil?"
    They have missed a greater conundrum
    "Why would a perfect God create a universe at all?"

    Bethesda should consider not making any more RPGs.

    I dislike superhero themed games. Not because they're bad, but because they never do the hero (or villain) justice. They are always gimped compared to their comic book roots, to fit the narrative of the shitty game they're being tied to. It's an injustice to the characters and lore that have been established and built upon in meticulous ways, and these shitty game devs never follow the lore and established narrative. If they did, the games would be broken because hero power discrepancy is absolutely massive.

    You, simply, can't give the characters the power and potency they deserve while maintaining a balanced playfield for people. If they tried, it would be a terrible, boring game like Marvel Heroes.

    The infamous series would like to have a word with you. Any time you're in danger it's by enemies with the same powers as you, not just random thugs like you see in batman and spiderman games.

    Honestly bethesda should give up on RPG aspect and focus entirely on action/sandbox.

    Also superhero theme....meh.

    Bethesda should consider making a game that doesnt have to be fixed by mods. And then they can start thinking about stuff like this

    Personally I would like to see a decent urban fantasy rpg video game, something along the themes of Dresden Files etc.

    First thing bethesda should consider is replacing that gamebryo/creation engine of theirs entirely from scratch.

    Bethesda creates RPG the same way I create a salad: I grab a bowl, and then fill it up with every "hip" vegetable/ingredient that I heard people like and love. with no regard on how to blend them together using appropriate seasoning or how to properly prepare each ingredient or no regard about what dressing I should use.

    Take Fallout 4 : Minecraft settlement building, just thrown there with no goal in mind. Borderlands gear/loot system is executed but the legendaries don't even look legendary at all, they're just normal gear with bonus traits. ME / DA dialogue system executed in the dumbest way possible (so they dumbed down a dumbed down dialogue system, lol) faction reputation just thrown in there with the ending forcing you choose between one faction in the most illogical manner, and ending the game in a half-assed way. and many many other small stuff in F4.

    Where do you think those games got their "dialogue systems" from ?

    I'd love to see a nextgen game akin to "Freedom Force." I don't know if Bethesda is the company to make it, or even if it would translate well to Openworld... but I'd be willing to take a wait & see approach til it goes live.

    W/e it is, it is inferior to the traditional dialogue box.

    Not unless they create a new engine. If they release another fucking game on this shittastic engine they keep bandaging up release after release, I'mma stop throwing money at them.

    The idea would be cool, but again, without a proper engine, no. Just, no.
