The Top 5 Things We Want to See in Fallout 4


Back in the Spring I remember sitting next to my good friend in science class and freaking out over something Bethesda had teased on Twitter (and yes before you ask I am kind of a rebel for having my phone out in class). A simple Vine video had my friend and me ecstatic. The creepy vibe, old record player, and ominous tone to the short clip screamed Fallout 4. Sadly, a few days later The Evil Within was revealed and my hope for a Fallout 4 announcement had come and gone.

With E3 gone and QuakeCon just ending it’s difficult to see a Fallout 4 announcement anywhere in the near future, so while our mouths water over anything Fallout related, let’s discuss 5 things that would make Fallout 4 the best video game ever made.

Definetly good points except #1. Dont need vehicles. The best part about the game is it to walk through the wasteland listening to the radio.

gaelic_laoch1562d ago

I really don't want vehicles!!!!

If the vehicle controls are wacky it can ruin the feel of the game and make you feel detached from the experience!

Plus I love the feeling of being abandoned in the game so being able to travel around too quickly would ruin that feeling, sure there is Quick Travel anyway!

MrTrololo1562d ago

If they don't add vehicle at least add the option to sprint. Travelling to one place to another is tedious considering how slow your character moves

SillyYou1561d ago

Yes thats important of course.

Oschino19071561d ago

In FO3 they should have had an option to ride Fawkes. He could have easily handled it, he was already basically unstoppable and never slowed down no matter how filled his inventory was. Lol he was so overpowered!

levian1561d ago

It's sort of mixed for me. I love having a fast travel option, but I hate fast travelling. You miss so much, but it takes too damn long to travel sometimes.

I think if they added a quest to fix up a motorcycle over the course of the first half of the game or so, I think it could be great. I would certainly use fast travel less, which would be great. Skyrim has horses, why can't fallout have bikes?

Also, those ships the Enclave use - I'd totally love to use it.

TimeSkipLuffy1562d ago

Vehicles would be nice but in a world like Fallout gas probably is very rare or you have to pay a horrendous price for it. If they add vehicles they should keep that in mind. A vehicle that has no defects and does not need fuel... before that happens I would happily choose not have vehicles.

I want a Fallout 3 like game in another country and with better graphics and less bugs ^^

Thehyph1561d ago

Vehicles were great in previous Fallout games. Seriously, when you first find a car and then it's hinted that you can later fix it up to use... you get on that poop. Also, it ran on micro fusion cells a la laser guns. So yes, very expensive and heavy ammo was used for your vehicle.

I want the game to not be Skyrim with guns. I'm not trolling here. I've played the poop out of Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics: BoS, and that terrible ps2/Xbox game Fallout: BoS.
I played Fallout 3 and it was definitely Oblivion with guns. I still haven't put much time into it. Such a shame because Fallout 2 has a very high possibility of being my favourite game if all time.

Pintheshadows1561d ago

Good choice. Fallout 2 is excellent. I would say though, give 3 more of a chance. Yes, it is effectively The Elder Scrolls with guns but there is more to it than that.

cootdog1231552d ago

You are right Pintheshadows fallout 3 is the shit.

gaelic_laoch1562d ago

Get Fallout 4 out of America, was great fun stateside but London, Paris even Belfast would be a nice change!

Pintheshadows1561d ago

They wouldn't set it in Belfast as it would be hard to tell the difference between post nuclear war and regular Belfast. Dublin would be better.

levian1561d ago

That's why I didn't enjoy New Vegas' setting. It was already a wasteland before a nuclear war, there really isn't much difference until you see a building or something.

MAULxx1562d ago

How about no deteriorating weapons?
Yes, something too zoom around the wasteland in would be nice as long as it doesn't have the deteriorating BS.

Volitiel1561d ago (Edited 1561d ago )

Disagree; weapons and vehicles that don't deteriorate from use will take away from what makes Fallout an RPG. I don't want Fallout to become more of an action game like Rage.

MAULxx1561d ago

I'm all for some RPG but how is deteriorating weapons role playing? All you really do is have multiple identical guns & click on one of em. Not really an awesome gameplay mechanic by any means.
Yes, upgrades to weapons but if my character can't maintain a weapon then he probably shouldn't be using one or be out in the wasteland in the first place. Deteriorating vehicles would be terrible. I would scavenge for upgrades up I'm not spending a whole lot of time collecting identical parts just so when the deteriorate I can paste another one.

Volitiel1559d ago

Having the deteriorating weapons & armor causes the player to have to plan ahead before venturing out into the wasteland. It constantly affected how I played Fallout 3 & New Vegas with decisions I had to make balancing what I need and what I can carry. These are very common characteristics of many RPG's.

Losing the deteriorating weapons & armor is a big step closer to a Call of Duty/action/FPS game where there is now no planing ahead. I personally would've preferred repairs only possible at workbenches in a safe zone too, but that's me. But having the deteriorating weapons and armor made Fallout 3 & New Vegas feel more realistic and like an RPG IMO.

I would hope for and expect the same maintenance for vehicles too if added to Fallout 4, besides also scavenging for gas. I like how the DayZ mod handles vehicles where you have to find parts and repair them first. Auto repair could easily be a separate skill in Fallout 4.

And I truly hope there is no car combat in Fallout 4 either; it should be simply for quicker transportation. And I feel fast travel (teleporting) to already visited locations should be dropped or limited in some way if vehicles are added.

LightningSamus1562d ago

We want less bugs, we all want to play the game without problems.

That's what should be on the list instead of vehicles.
