Here is SOME of the bad bethesda has done...which is no different than EA (especially destroying companies)http://www.ign.com/articles/2018/06/28/bethesda-suing-warner-bros-for-blatant-rip-off-of-fallout-shelter
While nothing has come of that yet. From warner bros they said no code was copied. And copying game ideas is NOT illegal. IF copying games was illegal, then all the WoW clones need to be shut down RIGHT NOW and every other clone game needs to be removed RIGHT NOW
And here Bethesda screwed interplay hard
"Then, Interplay crashed hard. Facing budget shortfalls, it was taken over by French company Titus Software, which gutted its studios and laid off the entire Van Buren staff. It released a widely hated Fallout spinoff called Brotherhood of Steel, and its finances became so dire that the offices briefly"
"It cut a $5.75 million deal that would leave Interplay with the rights to build a massively multiplayer Fallout game, as long as it secured $30 million in financing, commenced full-scale development within two years, and launched within four years after that. It was an ambitious timeline for the developer of any big online game, let alone one in the dire straits Interplay had found itself in."
"Eric, it was a calculated gamble for Bethesda. Caen claims Interplay had offered to sell the MMO rights, but that Bethesda had balked at the proposed $50 million price. Instead, it agreed to terms that the shrunken, cash-strapped Interplay seemed unlikely to satisfy, on the condition that it could recover the rights for free if (or when) Interplay failed."
"But Anderson slowly decided that the project was hopeless. “It was impossible to get anything approved through Bethesda,” he told GamesTM. And when he looked at the stringent terms of the contract, “it became very clear to me that Bethesda had no intention of ever allowing Interplay to actually create an MMO.” In early 2009, he left Interplay for a job at InXile Entertainment, working on a sequel to Fallout’s spiritual predecessor Wasteland."
They also REFUSED Obsidian's offer to make another Fallout. Because they know they'd make a far better game than they could, but they (Bethesda) also want multiplayer only, microtransaction infested games and want nothing to do with Steam any longer
Supporting Bethesda is now no longer different than supporting EA
Also bethesda knew interplay couldn't get 30 million in financing, and they also knew they could get the rights for free by destroying interplay. They also knew there is no way to make a good MMO in FOUR years (impossible). They sabotaged interplay.
And that is only a tiny bit of how bad Bethesda is now.
