So which of the two series to you is superior? Personally I'll be saying TES, and not because of Skyrim. I find Fallout in general to be boring, dull, genetic and bland. I can't truly explain it...it's the little quirks like karma that make it really boring to me.

Besides, fantasy is by far my favourite game setting - especially medieval fantasy.

So what about the rest of SW?

After playing skyrim which is oblivion with Mammoths, i don't want another ES for loooooong time. Enjoyed the sh*t out of F3 and Vegas was even better. Fallout hands down

I have to go Elder Scrolls. I'm more into the elves and wizards'n sh**. But I didn't really enjoy Skyrim that much, hopefully next gen Bethesda can either A. go back to being a better RPG or B. Do the action adventure combat better and learn a thing or to from the Demons series.

I have to go with Fallout. I loved Skyrim but I didn't get immersed in the world the same way I did with Fallout 3 and New Vegas

Fallout?

You mean Fallout 3, right?

#6 Posted by callsignneptune (256 posts) -
I think it really comes down to personal preference but my vote would be with Fallout.That's not to say I don't love The Elder Scrolls but I adore post-apocalyptic and dystopian settings so Fallout is the series for me.

OP, did you ever play Fallout 1, 2 and New Vegas? The only TES game that grabbed me was Morrowind, and my issues with the series lie in the lack of direction and decent writing; which Morrowind made up for in expanse and rich, unique setting. Skyrim is walking along a fine line in this regard, others like Oblivion were just bad and Daggerfall hasn't held up nearly as well compared to this threads comparative title Fallout 1.

I think Fallout is the better series. With TES, the early ones were TOO buggy and had a few too many issues. Fallout 1 and 2 were buggy as hell also, but it didn't interfere with the games to the level it did with TES.

I've also always preferred the atmosphere and stories. Fallout 3 was miles better then Oblivion, and I enjoyed it more then Skyrim. I can't wait for the next Fallout game, but with Skyrim I was more "meh" towards it in comparison.

Oblivion and Skyrim are easily in top 10 favorite games of the gen. Elder Scrolls all the way.

#10 Posted by Lucianu (9353 posts) -

Fallout 1, 2 and New Vegas are my 2nd favorite series of RPGs ever, so i'm gonna go with Fallout.

#11 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21562 posts) -
I don't like games with bad gameplay so i'll go with Fallout series.
#12 Posted by Arach666 (23019 posts) -

Fallout,simply because Fallout and Fallout 2 are two of the best RPG´s ever made.

#13 Posted by PAL360 (26733 posts) -

TES by far to me.

#14 Posted by Twin-Blade (6795 posts) -

TES, because Fallout is depressing. Also, Swords are cooler than guns.

#15 Posted by _TheJoker_ (6013 posts) -

This has been done to death!

TES for me, I like themedievalfantasy world more than the post apocaliptic one.

#16 Posted by ghostofzabis (2601 posts) -

Fallout, and I prefer fantasy setting over post-apocalypse setting.

#17 Posted by GamerForca (7079 posts) -
I like a Fantasy setting more than a post-apocalyptic one. And yet I'm still going with Fallout.
#18 Posted by Am_Confucius (3376 posts) -

Morrowind.

#19 Posted by gamebreakerz__ (5120 posts) -
Morrowind is easily the best game of both series by a long margin, however I have found Fallout 3 and NV to be better than Skyrim. Morrowind>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Oblivion>>>Fallout 3>>>>>>>Fallout NV>>>Skyrim
#20 Posted by Badosh (12727 posts) -
TES. Fallout is meh.
#21 Posted by Planeforger (15543 posts) -
As much as I loved Morrowind and can respect Daggerfall, Fallout 1 and 2 are far and away better than anything Bethesda has ever made. So Fallout gets an easy vote from me.
#22 Posted by MLBknights58 (5015 posts) -

I had more fun with Fallout 3 than with Oblivion, and had more fun with Oblivion than I did Skyrim. New Vegas was okay.

What's up with people treating New Vegas like it's somethin special? Felt the exact damn same as Fallout 3. Literally like no difference besides the Hardcore mode.

#23 Posted by waltefmoney (18030 posts) -

I've enjoyed The Elder Scrolls more, but Fallout is also really good.

#24 Posted by Firebird-5 (2848 posts) -
fallout. with the exception of tactics (it wasn't billed as one) and fallout 3 (lol bethesda) the series is actually an rpg, not action-adventure. i also prefer guns to swords, but that's me. nb: i'm not saying skyrim or oblivion are bad (actually oblivion was bad but whatever)
#25 Posted by tjricardo089 (7429 posts) -

Fallout is better. More atmosphere and it's awesome. Better than TES.

This. Fvck Fallout is so depressing

If you mean the older fallouts, then fallout if you mean the newer fallout, then fallout
#28 Posted by Tikeio (5332 posts) -

What is this? Until Bethesda got their hands on Fallout 3, there were no distinct similarities between TES and Fallout.

Are you my long lost twin? I feel the exact same way. It just felt like more of the same, but more Fallout isn't a bad thing. :)

Elder Scrolls.

Fallout 3 bored the sh!t out of me.
Although I'm still thinking of getting New Vegas:Complete Edition.

#33 Posted by delta3074 (17906 posts) -
Elder scrolls because the enviroments are better, more colour, more varied enemys and NPC's, larger worlds with more locations to explore and it's swords and sorcery, true fantasy imo.

Combat is far better in vegas and you can sight down the weapon so it is much more fun than FO 3 and it's just got a better more fun storyline than FO 3, it does have a smaller world with less locations though.

Hmm,does sound interesting. I might get it next month.

I am going with Fallout, but mostly because of Fallout 1 and 2 which I really enjoyed back in the day. But, as Elder Scrolls' universe expands and we can see different countries, cultures and landscapes, I am starting to like it more and more, so I may switch sides at some point in future...

MLBknights58

hardcore mode, some slight rpg tweaks, better mob scaling, IMO better narrative/progression, and a better faction system than even Skyrim were enough to make it seem much better.

If obsidian made a TES game like what they did with NV, it would own skyrim as well. (after the patches, lol obsidian and bugs)

#38 Posted by Desmonic (13457 posts) -
I prefer Fallout over TES. Never got quite a immersed in a world and story of a game as I have in Fallout :P TES is also cool anyway.

TES, I couldn't get into fallout at all

Fallout for me, and it isn't close. Still waiting for F4. :x

none they both suck
#42 Posted by superapo (1714 posts) -

Both are fantastic for different reasons, if i was forced to choose one i would go with Fallout.

Well, it's not just for the gameplay, i think.

The Gameplay in Fallout 3 was fine(except for the Piss-poor aiming, but the game was designed with V.A.T.S in mind and the shooting was tacked on so...), the biggest reason as to why a lot of People didn't liked FO3 and a lot of Old School FO fans didn't liked it(and were warmer towards NV), is because of the writing, the type of Atmosphere and the "Fallout Charm", that strange, Freak-ish charm that The Original games had but FO3 just... Didn't, which is why it ultimately didn't feel like a Fallout game(not to me anyways)

not to mention fallout 3 isn't an rpg and nv is

Arcania doesn't change the fact that Gothic 1 and 2 are some of the best RPG's ever made.

differnet feeling games. both boring and exciting in their own ways.
#50 Posted by AmayaPapaya (9029 posts) -

I think Skyrim is better than Fallout 3, but mostly because of the improvments made in general. I prefer the Fallout style of choice than Skyrim's style of content any day.
