nekollx asked: Been watching your (fallout 3) LPs, love the Roleplay aspect and your comentary on things you would like to make it more imersive like MEgaton people having more "supid answers" dialog. Would love to pick your brain on other things to make fo3 more imersive as a roleplayer
Is there a question there? :) I think the biggest immersion comes from roleplaying itself, filling the blanks that Fallout 3, or any game, doesn’t offer.
For example, I don’t consider eat/drink/sleep mod making the game immersive, it makes it a game. Eating, drinking and sleeping like a person would is roleplay even without a mod making it a game.
Same thing with NPCs. They might not have the in-game dialogue and answers, but you can roleplay they do.
If there’s one thing that the game could offer, something we hopefully see in Fallout 4, is more dynamic NPCs that would seem to have a life even if player is not around, doing their own thing and having their own motives. And not just patrolling without anything real to do during day and sleeping at night.
With that said, I’d like to see a RPG world that makes sense in every way:
- There’d be a place/system where the food comes from,
- there’d be a place where the water comes from,
- there’d be more already looted places instead of having everything wait for the player,
- the caravans would actually move weapons and other goods between settlements and from suppliers (farms, etc.),
- all NPCs wouldn’t immediately know what player or anyone does on the other side of the world, but instead
- rumors and news would spread with NPCs, caravans, radio (if there is such), and
- NPCs would react to the player based on the information they have heard (which might or might not be true).
Let’s Play Skyrim (Roleplay, Mage)
Slow-paced Skyrim roleplay with a Breton mage (pure mage). Difficulty: Master. Permanent death (on death, the let’s play is over).
Can a Breton goods peddler find his inner hero, his destiny, or will he die trying?
