      Like what he said

      Without Fallout 3 New Vegas probably wouldn't exist so yeah I guess.

      And you can't deny the cultural impact that Skyrim and oblivion had, and his constant support and appreciation for the modding community

        Skyrim has definitely made a huge impact. But it is the last good game they put out.
        I enjoyed Fallout 4, but you can't deny it's really dumbed down.
        I'll admit he got me hook, line, and sinker with Starfield. I'm a bit more optimistic and try to not be part of the Ganker-hates-everything hivenind, but Starfield really is garbage, and I'm not falling for Todd's lies again.

        I do hope the fallout show is good tho. Give Walton Goggins another win

    Hardly qualifies as people.
    Starfield is a 12/10 masterpiece boomer game.

    I thought he was good and was giving him the benefit of the doubt since Fallout 4, but really he shilled 2 mobile games, a trash fallout mmo, and his passion project, Starfield, turns out to be pure shit. So now its not really 'hate' but 'not remotely a fan of anymore'.

    it's funny to me that after all these years people still take what this guy says at face value.
    any passion he had for making games is long gone.

    I think people only like him because of toddposting. Makes people think Todd is some lovable scamp who goes around the internet with a Grouch Marx mustache trying to shill for Skyrim.
    Considering how low effort his games are there's only two outcomes, he's either a soulless business man who only thinks about maximizing profits with the least amount of work or he's a terrible director who always chooses the easiest solution and has no ambition. Neither are admirable qualities.

      You cannot call his games low-effort, that is the one thing you can't fricking say about them.
      You can say that they suck, that they've been dumbed down or casualized, that a lot of the stuff in them doesn't work and that they're overhyped, but you CANNOT call them low-effort.

      I think of work goes into Beth games, but they are penny-pinchers who want to do everything on the cheap, probably because they were threatened with bankruptcy back when Redguard flopped. They won't license a decent engine from someone else, and they won't invest in making a new one. It might even be the case that Todd's habit of lying emerges from their frugal business practices. Don't want to spend a fortune on marketing? Get Todd to drum up hype with his sensational lies instead. A dishonest E3 presentation from Todd "paid mod" Howard is a worth a hundred adverts in the gaming press.

    I can't forgive him for killing the Elder Scrolls just so he could shit out fallout 76 and starfield. 17 fricking years, and you know it's gonna be dogshit, with that fricker still head of writing, the main composer gone, and obviously that fricking engine.

    Obviously. The man is a living legend if you factor in all his accomplishments throughout the years.

    I feel most of his games in general get too much flak. They’re imperfect and janky, but that’s what gives them their charm. It’s like Eurojank— Ambition at the expense of polish.

      Well there are reasons for that. Everyone likes to say that the previous decade of Bethesda was a period of decline, while the run of games from Morrowind the Skyrim was their peak. But when you play these games from what we might call their golden age, you're going to experience some frustration. Every game is saddled by some bad decisions and money-saving compromises, like the bad voice acting that plagues Oblivion and Fallout 3, and the jank moments where a homeless tramp will start talking like an aristocrat, and things of this nature. This is aggravating because the games are mostly good and are so nearly "there" that they could have been 10/10 classics if not for the presence of these flaws that easily could have been fixed.

    Not that it makes this bethesda gay any less obvious but it certainly emboldens him.

    I hate his fricking stupid games, but I love Todd. He's so passionate and got that nerd charisma where he's so clearly passionate and loves what he does that it makes me feel happy just hearing him being passionate about it.
    Great guy, just makes shit games.
