Those iconic words have been spoken by Hellboy actor Ron Perlman in each of the mainline Fallout games. This being just one of several motifs that have made the game series a favourite of fans the world over.
But while war doesn’t change, Fallout certainly does. From the focus on role-playing and isometric perspectives of the first two titles, to the action-oriented 3D awesomeness of the Bethesda published games, the series has shown it is capable of adapting with the times. All while maintaining the fundamental principles that make a Fallout game, well, a Fallout game.
After the universally derided misstep that was Fallout 76, Bethesda will be looking to bounce back in a big way with their next title, in an attempt to replicate the huge commercial success that was Fallout 4. And what better way to do just that, than incorporate some of the elements that made previous games in the series so hard to put down?
Will Fallout 5 prove to be a return to form? A little fan service could go a long way in restoring the honour of one of gaming's most beloved RPGs.
