Remastered Fallout: New Vegas

This petition had 1,754 supporters

With the recent release of Fallout 4 from Bethesda Game Studios, many of us fans have found ourselves feeling nostalgic for the features of its predecessors. While Fallout 4 is a fine game, in its own right, there is no doubt that it is has deviated from many of the features that made Fallout 3 and New Vegas so great. For this reason, I am petitioning Obsidian Entertainment to remaster their beloved classic, Fallout: New Vegas, for the newest Generation of consoles.

As Fallout: New Vegas runs off of the Gamebryo Engine, which is already pushed just about to its limit, a remastered New Vegas would have to run on a better engine. This could give the developers the opportunity to iron out many of the kinks that have plagued the game since it was originally released. I'm not a tech head, nor do I know how much work would need to go into running the game on a newer, better engine. My goal with this petition, besides the obvious, is to show Obsidian Entertainment that there is a significant interest in a remastered New Vegas, and show Bethesda Game Studios where they went wrong with Fallout 4.

Remastering old games is always somewhat of a controversial topic, as many people don't see that point in attempting to re-sell the same old product, in a different package, to the consumer. For this reason, it may not be a bad idea to add a few new features to the remastered game. Adding in some new/classic weapons and items could add some new content to the game. One of the reasons that Fallout: New Vegas is one of my all-time favorite video games is the array of weapons from which you can choose to use throughout your time in-game. That being said, many players wouldn't complain about have a few new weapons and items to play with.

Honestly, I don't really care if they add in any new content, in the event that they decide to remaster Fallout: New Vegas. Heck, I don't even need the graphics to be at the cutting edge of video game tech; I'd be happy if they even brought the graphics up to the same level as Skyrim (good graphics, but not incredibly taxing on the engine). I love all things Fallout, and while I do enjoy Fallout 4, I always find myself missing the time spent playing its predecessors, and would love to be able to continue playing those games well into the future.

*Since PC players already have mods that allow them to seriously overhaul the game and extend its life for far longer than that of the console variant, this petition is not necessarily aimed at them. Still, those same PC players could benefit from the enhanced/new engine that the game would have to run on.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you will help me make this happen and show Obsidian that we love their game and want to see more. If this gets enough attention, maybe we could even see another Fallout game from Obsidian Entertainment
