I completely agree, Bethesda created some awesome characters in F3 but then there is zero option of getting involved with them? EPIC FAIL. I got NV, BUT if it turns out to be another F3? I'll ignore the franchise like I ignore Halo. And to hopefully educate a few, YES F1 and F2 had a small amount of romance/sexual content. This is part of the reason it is called ROLE-Playing. the PLAYER CHOOSES the role they wish to play. So you don't like romance? good for you... sad but that is your 'choice'; and the game is rated 'M' for a reason.
Yeah, its pretty bad when you have such huge, prolific worlds and yet, they let inter-character relationships slide away.
Oblivion. Fallout 3.
I mean c'mon now --- after Mass Effect 1 and 2, you would think the industry of Action/RPG's would have caught on --- heck even Fable II had some form of a inter-relation part to it...even though it was rather 2 dimensional and not as prolific as Mass Effect.
I think certain age groups will claim this to be a stupid comment while much older age groups will understand this complaint.
Wow, this is the lamest complaint ever. Who cares about romance in games? I admit I liked the romance/ relationship thing mass effect has going on and even helps flesh out and make an amazing story. But to say it would make or break a game is ridiculous. I mean did Bio shock suck because you couldn't sleep with a splicer? Was god of war a waste of time because he could care less about love and only wanted revenge?
What are you guys complaining about? From what I've played, you can have romantic relations with a few classy ladies at one of the casinos. Isn't that enough for you? It was so realistic that when I used the in-game toilet, it burned when I took a leak.
LMAO! you guys are crackin me up. i agree. shooting stupid rabid dogs in the face and seeing thier eye ball pop out of thier head is more than enough. i guess some of these guys have to buy romance in a vidoe game to get any. lol.
Hey, we all know that nothing is more of a rush than when a programmed AI companion finally admits that she would walk through a +10Rad/sec minefield just to be with you. Ah, that's what life is all about, amirite?
Roleplaying games are about STORY first, and a good romance plotline can be a lot of fun for a lot of people. Companion relationships, both romantic and otherwise add depth and immersion to a game. If you *JUST* want to blast mutants, go play one of the 30000 shooters out there. If you want to kick ass and have a story associated with it, play an RPG.
