While Fallout 3 is a resounding success, the game wasn't without its flaws. Looking to the future of the Fallout franchise, Bethesada takes with them two very important lessons from their first attempt.

As part of an interview with MTV Multiplayer, Fallout 3 executive producer Todd Howard very briefly mentioned two important lessons he learned from making the game that he would carry with him as the franchise moves forward to Fallout 4 and beyond.

"Greatest lesson? Don't let the game end, and don't have a level cap," said Howard.

Bingo! Spot on the nose, Todd. Xbox 360 and PC players are getting the ending removed and the level cap raised in the upcoming Broken Steel downloadable content pack, so I'd say Bethesda has learned those particular lessons rather well. Good show!
