I'm perplexed by how someone can place ME3, Fallout 3 and Oblivion on remotely the same level as VtM:B and New Vegas. Sure, they all call themselves RPG's and have action combat but the gulf in quest…

Well, I didn't intend to put you down :P I'm glad that Larian seems genuine about using their freedom for taking creative risks and making games they are passionate about.

So, Wasteland 2 and now this. Hope this puts a stop to the ridiculous "Game X was the last RPG EVER and we're NEVER going to get another game like Game X again!".

Well, at least until the next…

I don't think it's cyclical, I just think we have very different opinions on what a "complex" RPG is.

For me, an RPG that is complex, or "not casual", should have combat that requires tactics and…

LARPing you mean? To be honest, I hope Skyrim doesn't influences that type of "features" in other RPGs.

The IGN review mentioned armor sets only being available from vendors. I couldn't find any comments on that in your review, isn't it possible to find equipment in the world or get it as quest rewards?

Alright, let me rephrase then: The kind of optional complexity that Skyrim has doesn't impact how receptive the "mainstream" audience is to an RPG that is less forgiving and has less hand holding.

My point was that it doesn't matter, because I don't think there's a large audience who wants simplified systems but is still fine with the often punishing difficulty and lack of hand-holding. Which…

What's the point? LARPing that the game requires you to read books and optimize your character doesn't make it complex. When there are no consequences to choices they becoming cosmetic.

People in this thread.

I'm guessing that PB didn't want to dumb anything down but that their publishers demanded certain features.

Also, I doubt that "streamlining" of combat and stats really…

I'm sorry, but how does Skyrim prove that complex games can sell well? That's a game that literally demands nothing from the player.

You just follow a marker and kill or activate something at the…
