I didn't care for Skyrim, but Oblivion was great. Fallot 3 was a snooze fest with awful gameplay, so I have to go with ES.

Don't know, I really like Fallout, but I also really like cheese.

Seriously though, easily Fallout, I hate the universe in The Elder Scrolls, I JUST DON'T CARE. Fallout has an interesting universe and a better premise.

I love both, Fallout 3 was my favorite game this gen and Skyrim is/was a blast to play.

Still? After Arcania?

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

Hmm ok.. I've only played 3 with the community patch. Loved it though despite its shortcomings. But this thread is about current franchises and do we agree that Risen is superior than Gothic, Fallout and TES atm?

I guess. I've enjoyed Gothic 1, 2 and Morrowind more than Risen, but atm I'd say Risen is the best.

Until they can fix the horrendous shooting in Fallout, I'm going with Elder Scrolls. I shouldn't have to use VATS to be able to hit something.

Although i find TES more fun, Fallout NV got me laid.

so Fallout.

The Elder Scrolls.

Fantasy over post apocalypse setting any day of the week for me.

#61 Posted by Riverwolf007 (23398 posts) -

I also loved Gothic 3 and Risen. I'm a huge fan of Piranha bytes, they are incredibly underrated wen it comes to open-ended RPGs, and Gothic 2: Gold is easily superior to Risen. And sh*ts all over Elder Scrolls.

#64 Posted by edinsftw (4225 posts) -

Fallout, mostly because where i live there is alot of pine trees and i get sick of seeing them all the time.

#65 Posted by arto1223 (4404 posts) -

My vote went towards TES only because I liked the style of FO1 and 2 more than the current first person versions.

#66 Posted by TheFallenDemon (13932 posts) -

They are basically just the same games with a few differences.

So you have to ask yourself. Would you rather have generic fantasy with clunky swordfighting or generic post-apocalyptic with clunky gunplay?

#67 Posted by Mr_Cumberdale (10187 posts) -
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 downsilversix_
Wow I'm quite the opposite. I just can't play Fallout anymore because it's too barren. TES is a better series IMO.
#68 Posted by HoolaHoopMan (7693 posts) -
Fallout series is far better IMO. New Vegas alone is better than every ES game.
#69 Posted by fabz_95 (15424 posts) -
I prefer the Elder Scrolls franchise although I can't say I've played either series too much.
#70 Posted by ShyGuy0504 (1121 posts) -

TES for me. I liked Fallout 3 and New Vegas but I prefer the fantasy setting of TES. I've never played the first 2 Fallout games but I have read about them and I don't think I would like them very much.

#71 Posted by AvnKnight (839 posts) -

Fallout for me, I can play the fallout games for hours at a time but cant play any ES game for more then 15minutes at a time.

#72 Posted by Ballroompirate (21774 posts) -

ES by a landslide, Fallout series has always been bland and overrated in my eyes.

#73 Posted by ShadowsDemon (10101 posts) -
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.skrat_01
Yes of course I have, and I hated them.
#74 Posted by Stevo_the_gamer (42539 posts) -
The lore behind Fallout grabs onto me a lot stronger, but the quality behind Skyrim far exceeds that of the other Elder Scrolls and Fallout games.
#75 Posted by OB-47 (10912 posts) -

What does it mean be a game being gentic? Do you mean generic?

Anyway, Fallout for me, especially if we are including 1 and 2. New Vegas is also outstanding if not for the aging engine which still can't take it away from greatness.

#76 Posted by OB-47 (10912 posts) -

And people who played Fallout 3 and liked it please do yourself a favour and play New Vegas. It's so much better. If you can stand old games please try Fallout 1 and 2. These are the best RPG's I've played

#77 Posted by Masenkoe (4888 posts) -

Fallout for me.

#78 Posted by Kevlar101 (5977 posts) -
Elder Scrolls. Fallout is ok, but i prefer ES.
#79 Posted by GOGOGOGURT (4470 posts) -

Why can't there ever be a pure poll? I see "elder scrolls vs fallout" there should be 2 options, not 5.

#80 Posted by wis3boi (30924 posts) -

depends on the fallout we're talking about....Interplay's Fallout or bethesda's....because bethesda's fallout pales compared to the old ones

Hoorah!

But Bethesda built a solid foundation of what Fallout should be in the modern gaming world. Obsidian improved it a whole lot more, but brought some bugs with it.

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.

MLBknights58

Uhhh no.

There are abyssal differences between Fallout 3 and NV.

NV has a much better and more fitting atmosphere, the story and writing are on another planet, the factions are actual factions and there's plenty of good characters in it.

Yes this. It's quite similair on the gameplay and foundations level but theres much more consequence in the world, much better writing, and just plain good atmosphere. The quests are awesome and the characters are hilarious, disturbing and intriguing.

I like them both equally myself.
#85 Posted by Juggernaut140 (36011 posts) -
Morrowind is my favorite game ever but I completely acknowledge that it's actual "role-playing" is pretty lacking. Though it's much better than what Oblivion/Skyrim offer. As far as voting for which series offers a better roleplaying experience, I have to hand to Fallout any day of the week.
#86 Posted by Doolz2024 (9592 posts) -
I love both, prefer Fallout.
#87 Posted by DeadMan1290 (15499 posts) -

Elder Scrolls.

#88 Posted by kraken2109 (12950 posts) -

Both have great worlds, but fallout 3 had bad gunplay. New Vegas improved it with aiming down the sites.

Love TES more though.

#89 Edited by Lordhagan (18 posts) -

First let me say I am a fan of both series and have played Skyrim, Oblivion, and Morrowind extensively. I have also played Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3 GOTY and Fallout New Vegas Ultimate. Therefore I feel I can speak intelligently about both series. While I enjoy both in my opinion Fallout is vastly superior. TES is basically a really good swords and sorcery game series. There is NOTHING wrong with that, but there is nothing unique about hat either. Fallout is set is an awesome and totally unique post apocalyptic but also alternate timeline sci fi universe that is ridiculously cool! Also the writing in Fallout all of them is vastly superior, very entertaining with a dark wicked sense of humor that is totally lacking from TES.Another thing that Fallout 3 and New Vegas do infinitely superior ot TES is combat. VATS is amazing, imho it is the finest RPG combat system ever devised! IN conclusion I believe that on the whole the Fallout series is vast superior to the Elder Scrolls!

Ignoring pre-Bethesda Fallouts. Fallout: Vegas is the pick of the litter.

#92 Edited by Spartan070 (16307 posts) -

Never really got into the Fallout series other than Fallout 3, been a huge ES fan since Morrowind so ES.

#93 Posted by GhoX (4659 posts) -

Vanilla TES 4/5 > Vanilla FO 3/NV

Modded FO 3/NV > Modded TES 4/5

I especially enjoy hyper-realistic/survival mods for FO3/NV, where headshots really feel like headshots. On the other hand, even the best combat mods for TES require a lot of constant tweaking to make the combat remotely believable.

#94 Edited by AdobeArtist (22747 posts) -

Cannot believe all the older threads on this topic that got bumped.

Anyway, I go with Elder Scrolls. Fallout is fine for a post apocalyptic setting, but the combat is pretty limited. You can only select from an assortment of guns.

ES in its fantasy setting affords so much more variety for play styles: broad swords, sword/shield combos, dual sword wielding, archery, magic (that includes offensive, defensive, and manipulation), and even stealth approach. Plus you can choose different races with their skill and ability bonuses.

Old thread.

The Elder Scrolls.

Too few quests for Fallout, I was underwhelmed actually by the lack of quests in Fallout, but this also applied to Skyrim(lack of content in quests) which is sad.

#98 Posted by ominous_titan (458 posts) -

From what's available on consoles Morrowind was my favorite open world game. Truly felt panic stumbling on a daedroth in a ruin casting some spell when I was a weakling still. I hate that auto leveling crap they're using now. They need to go back to their old formula

#99 Posted by Boddicker (2287 posts) -

At this point considering Bethesda owns and ultimately controls both franchises it's more a question of whether you prefer a medieval fantasy world or a post-apocalyptic world.

I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic, especially given the Black Isle/Obsidian made F1, F2, and FNV. Imagine how good FNV would have been if Bethesda had given Obsidian more time to work on it instead of the rushed mess we got. It's still arguably the best RPG of 7th gen.
