A site called The Next Level had a chat with Bethesda's Emil Pagliarulo, lead designer of Fallout 3. Here's an excerpt:

Emil: Yeah, the whole “Oblivion with Guns” criticism was hurled our way so long ago. But it’s funny, because in order for that to resonate with you, you have to sort of feel that Oblivion isn’t a good game, and “Oblivion with Guns” would be a bad thing.

But instead of killing them with a magic sword, you kill them with a gun that shoots teddy bears.
