It's coming to the 360 and PS3 too, which means it's going to be unoptimized junk.

Because Bethesda is usually known for its outstanding platform optimization? I don't understand how coming to 360 and PS3 actually affects this since Bethesda would release 'unoptimized junk' even if it was just coming to PC. Even the console versions of Fallout 3 had crashing issues. An impressive feat.

Games are still being made for PS2 and 360?

No mention of it being for the 360 or PS3, only Xbone, PS4, and PC.  Apart from that...meh.  The graphics in particular look suspiciously same-y.

The character animations has been greatly improved, and I personally thought the environment looked more realistic and detailed.

It looks better, but that was a pretty disappointing trailer.

Maybe some graphics that reflect the fact that it's been seven years since 2008.

I don't care that much how a game looks. But I would have liked to see some more about the story, maybe just a snippet of the main plot would have been nice.

I agree that the graphics don't matter too much. Nintendo systems often lag behind competitors in their graphical capabilities, and yet it is the art design in a Mario or Zelda game that makes their titles so much more beautiful to look at than, say, the latest edition of Call of Duty. In this instance, all that matters is that the assets are put to good use in creating a worldspace, an atmosphere. The shots in the trailer of various places look fine, I am somewhat concerned that Bethesda appears to be taking considerable liberties with Fallout tech in some cases, but good art design can compensate for shortcomings in other areas of the presentation, and some of the places shown in the trailer look like they could be nice to look around and wander through at the very least.

I thought the graphics were pretty good. Is this a twilight zone thread? Usually Saddam is the one hatin' because of the focus on 'muh grafics'.

No, it isn't.

Doesn't matter, the game will still be horridly unoptimized. Thanks, Bethesda.

That is horribly pessimistic and you're a stupid person for thinking that way. I think Bethesda is going to do a really good job and if they don't, heck, they gave it their best shot and that's all that really matters.

I'm hoping Obsidian will make another west coast game which yet again will surpass Bethesda's effort.

My first impression was that the graphics only looked marginally better than those of F3, but upon closer examination, I can tell that they're much improved in how clear and sharp they are, especially with the environments.  Maybe the brighter and more vibrant colors threw my scrutiny off.  Or maybe I'm just a snobby PC elitist who's lost touch with realistic graphical capabilities.
