    Replaying this after 6 years and I can't believe they fell off so bad since FO3 and NV. Nothing about this game is enjoyable. Did anyone like this game, and why?

    I enjoyed it for what it was but yeah, didn’t really live up to the expectation it had set after 3 and NV. Thats kind of why i cooled off on bethesda studios, they put out nothing but underwhelming games last gen. They’re low key no better than BioWare to me now.

    I'm a Fallout fan and I thought the gameplay was an improvement.

    I didn't like the story or the fact the game lacked the ability for the player to role play a character like the previous titles.

    The only reason why I still played the game was the mods.

    The story had too many missed opportunities and the endings were not great.

    The voiced protagonist was one of the worst things about the game.

    The only one I never went back to once. Didn’t even play the DLC. I hated what they did to dialogue

    I feel like they just tried to remake 3’s story and failed horribly. IT had almost the same story beats, like no originality at all.

    I feel like if you weren’t originally there for when 3 came out you missed out a really special moment in gaming

    There were no clever characters like Mr. House or Benny or President Eden, etc. The combat was trash since all enemies were damage sponges. The weapon variety was sorely lacking. And the graphics made my eyes hurt, b.

    That was the first major game I played after I built my first nice PC, so the graphics were the one thing that couldn’t fail me :russ:

    The pacing of the story is terrible. The protagonist has too much of a backstory (which also makes choosing a female pointless).

    The narrative tells the player to look for their son but the game constantly throws quests, especially the bland settlement quests.

    Then when you finally get into the Institute, they have the most anti-climactic plot device by revealing the son to be the leader of the Institute.

    The Institute basically does evil stuff just for the hell of it. There is no reason to join them.

    The game also doesn't allow the player to be evil. You just act like a sarcastic jerk.

    They tried to fix this with the Nuka World DLC, but they fukked it up by not allowing the Nuka World factions to change the story.

    The worst part of the DLC is they want the player to raid their own settlements.

    Hopefully with Bethesda under Microsoft, they can focus on making quality games again. They also need to find a new lead writer. Emil Pagliarulo sucks.

    About the only other good thing Bethesda did with Fallout 4 is the Brotherhood of Steel. They didn't make them the complete good guys and actually followed the lore from previous games.

    Breh, I'm playing this at 4K/60 on PC and the shyt still looks cartoonish. The boundaries of objects are hard to see because everything uses this cartoon color palette and the shyt looks 2D, like a poster.

    That's why I use a lot of mods to overhaul the game.

    Most of them were from Fallout 4 on Nexus.
