Tim Cain discusses his concerns with Fallout 3 and why he’s pre-orderd it

The designer behind the original Fallout, Tim Cain, recently spoke with Edge about his feelings on the direction Bethesda has taken Fallout 3 in, as well as his concerns with Interplay’s Fallout-themed MMO.

He says, “I do like what I’ve seen about Fallout 3,” and continues, “it’s not necessarily the direction I would’ve gone, but I can tell you I have my Fallout 3 pre-ordered. I want my life-sized Pip-Boy. I’m going to be playing that at the end of the month.”

Concerning the MMO, Cain says that “the original games were designed to make you feel like you were one of the last people left on Earth” and how that fact causes him to wonder about “how they’ll handle making the game not feel too crowded.”

Finally, Tim reveals that he’s “looking forward to Fallout 3 as a consumer, not a developer. I just want to play it and enjoy it,” he explains. Can you blame the man?
