Westerns are called Westerns for a reason. The genre revels in its environment as much as it does its characters and plot. In some ways, the environment is the main character—often times trying to kill the protagonist with scorching heat. Local award-winning game studio Bethesda Softworks understands the importance of environment. Both of their hit franchises, "Elder Scrolls" and "Fallout" are massive, convincing worlds where tens of millions of people love to get lost in.
