    I think that's pretty funny. I never really realized that there are in fact no ladders in Fallout 3 or Oblivion. Everything is staircases. I guess ladders can't survive the apocalypse or weren't invented during the medieval times.

    Figured this wasn't really "news" so I posted it here. Rather funny though.

    Easier to make an AI walk up and down stairs than go up and down a ladder, easier on the animation team to. It makes sense but I'll admit it's still kinda funny

    I didn't notice it either, untill I saw a ladder which you could use as a sort of loading door in Fallout.

    Ladders can sometimes be awkward. Sometimes you don't seem to be able to dismount them properly without a lot of shuffling, falling off or general annoyance, depending on how they're set up.
