Why Elder Scrolls Will Always Be Better Than Fallout

10. Hear Me Out

Bethesda

Now, I hear you. Between a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland and sprawling high fantasy, you’d think it wasn't worth tying the two games together based on their production company alone: but there’s a surprisingly similar amount of gameplay and technical blood pumping through the pair’s veins.

Fallout and Elder Scrolls have long since been two sides of the same RPG coin, even utilising the same Creation engine in their latest releases (Fallout 4 and Skyrim respectively) to bring their gameplay even closer than ever.

Gamers that have enjoyed being S.P.E.C.I.A.L. little guys as well as shouting down the skies as the Dragonborn will be rolling their eyes at this point, but it’s enough to rehash the age old questions - just exactly which is worth your time and money? What really wins out between fantasy or science fiction? What prospect should really get you hot under the collar:

Fallout 5, or TES 6?
