Bethesda is revealing a lot of the game, including showing the entire beginning at last year's Eurogamer show. This implies a real confidence in the story on Bethesda's part, but there also seems to be a feedback process happening. While chatting with a player experience dev after I'd finished the demo, I learned that they're having issues with players under the age of 25 not connecting to the classic third-person survival horror format. The only horror games they're familiar with are first-person experiences like Amnesia: The Dark Descent. In a shining display of empathy, they apparently don't understand why they should care about horrible things happening to another person. I weep for humanity.
