Bethesda Developer Doesn't Get Facebook Gaming

Executive producer at Bethesda, Todd Howard, has aired his opinions on Facebook gaming as of late and had this to say in an interview with IndustryGamers when asked if he had interest in the burgeoning platform:
"I've got to be honest: I don't get it".

"I look at it and try to understand but for now I've just decided to ignore it (laughter). I think, one day, maybe I'll figure it out, but until then, I don't see the allure of those kinds of games."

"The light bulb hasn't gone off for me. I just don't get it. I get these little messages: 'I've got a new horse, or fish?' I don't know."

"There might be a way to connect people. I think that's always a good goal: to connect people through your game. So I've kind of looked into that, how we might be able to do some of those things. But as far as a game on there, I don't know."
Although he didn’t dismiss the usefulness of Facebook we can understand where he is coming from with comments such as these. Just make sure Fallout: New Vegas lives up to the series’ quality and doesn’t end up being Facebook compatible whilst you’re at it Mr. Howard.
