It’s been exactly a month since everyone’s favourite Fallout 4 landed on the consoles and PC, the game quickly rose to success and received numerous accolades and was also nominated for the Game of the Year award.
Agreed! I'm on my 2nd run thru and still loving every minute,also I feel better prepared for my choices I make this time.
I started my second character yesterday as well. This time as a woman/melee/jedi character since I found some lightsaber mods on the Nexus :D Really fun to play.
Nope, not drinking the koolaid. These WRPGs are too bland.
game didn't even come close to what I've been waiting for, in big part due to crappy dialogues and weak plot.
Well worth the hype. GOAT IMO
Just finished at lvl 40 on the first run as a melee fighter with no power armor. Now on my second run as a stealth player. Still go back and forth between the two players, this game is fun. The world is big, lots to explore and lots may have been missed.
Its exactly what I expected, more fallout, so for me it was!
Well worth the hype. I took off launch day from work just to be the scum of the earth and play Fallout all day and for weeks to come. Taking a break from it now but I'll come back, I mean I was still playing Fallout 3/New Vegas years after they came out.
My first thought from reading the first sentence... "Wow ive been playing it for a month already?" ^^That pretty much answered the question too.
I know right. Not too many games can either hold my interest even remotely that long anymore. Or, I've completely wrapped long ago. I'm still on my first play through, at lv 43 now. I think I'm almost done the main campaign but I still have plenty to do with side quests. And I know there is still a ton more to explore so most likely even more missions yet to do. This games awesome. Deserves all the hype it got and didn't disappoint...
no sold it on ebay for 5 bucks loss. It will be well worth it by march-april of 2016. game needs some patches to fix issues first and foremost the map has to be fixed, the way point system is so useless. even when you open the pip boy the map is still useless the game needs some balancing, how come the game becomes so hard even on easy, it makes zero sense with amount of difficulty spikes frame rate/res patch now you don't have to agree with these, it's just my opinion from playing the game
It was all hype to me
Yes it was. Goty all the way.
No, the most dissapointing game of the year.
That's quite a stretch don't you think? While the game is a lesser RPG than previous titles, it is still a fun game, it didn't live up to the hype, but hopefully since every platform will have access to mods, which are made by people who play the game & know what players want, rather than devs trying to streamline the game for profit, it will get better because of modders.
It was basically FO3 with a slightly shinier coat of paint because they're still using the same severely outdated engine. I was glad to get the platinum to be finished with the game.
Yes, yes it was :)
In many ways it really was but the complete gutting of the rpg elements (at least as far as creating and role playing your own individual character and interacting with the world in ways other than shooting) is too much for me to get past. That's was exactly what I feared they were going to do with this one and it's exactly what they did. Overall I'd have to say, great game, not so great Fallout game.
It depends on what you actually mean by "worth." For me, it was, but you never see me going crazy about something. I'm more of the kid who can't fall asleep the night before Christmas type. I tend to put future things in the back of my mind, then it hits me like a ton of bricks. I've seen plenty of people that love it, and others that seem disappointed. It's exactly what I expected, so I am very happy. I've played some awesome games this year, and I am super excited to see what's next.
What a sh8#e excuse for an article. Go back and really PLAY Fallout: New Vegas and tell us how the combat hasn't improved. Utterly laughable... For me, GOTY is easily FO4, with The Witcher 3 being a close second. Incredible game. Lighting, color palette and shadows easily make up for the overall dated nature of the engine. It's quite obvious that BethGameStudios were milking the Creation/Gamebryo legacy stuff for one more title, so they can concentrate on an entirely new engine for the next Elder Scrolls, or rumored new IP (whichever it is).
From what I've read, it isn't the revolution that Fallout 3 was, and doesn't have the old-school charm that New Vegas had. Picked up XCX instead.
I had moderate expectations going in and I'm enjoying it. It's an engaging and fun game for what it is, despite its faults. It was worth my hype for it, anyway.
