that is not the only part that bothered me about Oblivion, almost total lack of main story. it had ton of side quest but those were rather boring.

Actually this game is set 200 years after nuclear bombs leveled civilization.

Chernobyl didn't have a nuclear blast to damage most of the buildings. As far as I know it was a radiation leak but I could be wrong, I'm far from an expert on the subject. Kinda going way off topic with this tho.

I understand you were talking about all games and not just this one, but this is the only new game I've played in some time so I can't really comment on any others. I think the dull colors are there for atmospheric reasons. It's supposed to feel desolate, hopeless and dull.

The hype has gotten to me so I'll be purchasing this one a little later today. Hope it doesn't get boring like Oblivion did.

EDIT: I'm really excited to play such an open-ended game, but I hope that it isn't an Oblivion clone. The reviews really hype the game up, so I hope it lives up to it!

I mean I see your point. Judging from your pictures its easy to see that life, at least in the form of foliage can return to an area with extreme amounts of radiation, but if there were tons of trees and bright colored flowers in Fallout 3 I don't think the player would get the sense of utter destruction that this game wants to portray.

I myself am a bit concerned about this as well because as a player you'd like to see a variety of settings to keep you interested in the game. We shall see what effects this design decision has on the game in the next few days/weeks.

i agree with you, almost every game now looks brown. almost completly lacking color.
