Elder Scrolls series: thou hast been a "huge" inspiration to gory tropical open world shooter Far Cry 3.
"We've had to take a little bit of a different approach to most shooters," Far Cry 3 lead designer Jamie Keen said at the Eurogamer Expo today.
"In order to keep a player engaged over a period of time there are certain other genres we have to look into to keep that engagement over a longer time. So we've been looking at things like MMOs, we've been looking at other open world titles. The Elder Scrolls series is a huge inspiration for us; games like Red Dead [Redemption] and other Rockstar games as well."
