In this past February, Bethesda Softworks requested a trademark on the word Fallout for “entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program.” This could sort of hint towards them being interested in starting a TV series, or maybe they were just “covering all their bases”. To make sure that no one else will make a spin off of their Fallout series. Regardless, I think a Fallout T.V series would actually work, to be honest.
Fallout’s crazy humor, intense gore and impressive story telling would appeal to many. Bethesda is expected to comment on the matter soon. It is also said there might be a Fallout Movie. I’d probably prefer a movie over a T.V series. A movie might have some parts cut out, but it is overall higher in quality then a long running T.V series.
But again, the chance of those two things happening are quite slim. I don’t think there’s a need for a Movie or T.V series anyway. If they went for it, a lot of people would think they’re just trying to cashout on the Fallout series. The game itself is enough of a roleplaying experience anyway. I”m good with just the game. I think their focus shold be on the next Fallout game. The easiest type of game, to bring to the movie format, would be a RPG such as Fallout 3 I think. Since RPG’s tend to have the complicated and well thought out stories that a movie would require. Not to say that action games like Call of Duty or Gears of War 2 wouldn’t be able to achieve it. A Gears movie might be coming out actually. Movie to Video Game adaptions usually suck, I wonder how a video game to movie adaption would go? Would you watch a Fallout T.V series if it came out?
