Obsidian Entertainment's Josh Sawyer and Chris Avellone are interviewed by the Polish Fallout fansite Trzynasty Schron. Here are two admissions the devs have to make in the beginning:
Josh Sawyer I first played Fallout when I was in college. From the first few minutes in, I knew I was going to love it. It's such a unique setting and the game had so many new ideas in it that it immediately became one of my all-time favorites. When I first got into the game industry, I wanted nothing more than to work on a Fallout game.
Chris Avellone I don't think Interplay realized what it had, and I still kick myself to this day I didn't say "yes" when Tim Cain asked if I had time to work on it. Actually, I don't just kick myself, I also cry a little inside.
In fact, there's a whole lot more as the interview is rather long. You can read the rest
