The Elder Scrolls and Fallout Director Todd Howard Says “Playing It Safe Is The Worst Way To Do Things”

Todd Howard the man behind some of the most beloved games of all time with Fallout 3, Skyrim, and Morrowind, he has the ability to make even a mobile game sound exciting, due to how well he can present and sell his vision for his games.

In the wake of Bethesda’s announcements at E3, Howard gave a talk at the GameLab event in Barcelona, in a fireside chat with Game Awards founder Geoff Keighley. He also did an interview with GamesBeat, and I’ve culled some short tidbits from both of those talks for this story. “The idea is to keep being ambitious,” he said to GamesBeat. “Playing it safe is the worst way to do things. [The Elder Scrolls III:] Morrowind was hard. It was our first time on console. If it didn’t do well, the company was probably out of business. [The Elder Scrolls IV:] Oblivion was really difficult. We really pushed the tech. I liked that line in the movie Shakespeare in Love: How is this going to work out? I don’t know, but it always does.”

I know many will disagree, but I think Howard has always lived up to that idea. Even his missteps, like Fallout 4 or Oblivion, tried doing something new- they failed, in many respects, but they tried. I can’t wait to see what The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield will be like.
