Eurogamer: Pete Hines on Fallout 3
Following on from my preview, Eurogamer lobs up my interview with Pete Hines. I finally ask the "Why the hell do Fallout when it just buys you trouble. Make your own world and you dodge it all" question. To which Pete replies...
It's like, if George Lucas died tomorrow - God willing, he doesn't - and you're a film director. And you've grown up making big epic films - maybe you're Peter Jackson. And he finishes whatever his big next film is. And someone asks him, "what do you want to do next?" And he says, "I always wanted to make a big space movie. A big epic movie full of action." And they ask, "do you want to do generic space movie that you make up yourself, or do you want to do Star Wars."
And he continues. Other topics include response to criticism, the internal dialogue at Bethesda and mild swearing at Ken Levine.
