Fallout 4 and Skyrim Quest Comparison is Eye-Opening

One Reddit user has compiled every quest from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4 and the comparison is shocking.

Wow, now that's an eery coincidence.

Ive not really enjoyed the quest system in fallout 4 its got absolutely nothing on skyrim and also feels like a step back compared to new Vegas 😐

Same here. I just finished my first playthrough and I was left underwhelmed. There wasn't very many memorable quests and last questline for the path I chose just had a bad pacing. There's not much of a buildup, you're just all of a sudden in your final battle, then boom, end of the main story.

This game did present some fresh ideas to the series that I liked, but overall imo it's the weakest between Fallout 3 and NV.

Skyrim's quests were pretty boring compared to oblivion and morrowind.

Halo2ODST22111d ago

I was underwhelmed by Fallout 4's quests, but Skyrim had a lot & lots were good.

Grap2111d ago

i have said it and i will say it again, fallout 4 was very cheap compare to other Bethesda's games, it was really step back.

Story: FO3>FO4>FO:NV
Gameplay: FO4>FO:NV>FO3
Overall experience: FO4>FO3>FO:NV

Fallout 4 is a very good game and maybe the problem people have is that it is what people expected a Fallout game to be. Maybe they hoped for, but didn't or couldn't know what to expect to be different, a new experience like Witcher 3?

It's no hit on Fallout 4, but my first minutes of Fallout 4 outside the house my immediate thoughts were, "man I can't wait for the next Elder Scrolls!"...

I was already thinking of how amazing ES would look on ps4 and overall I think there's a lot more you can do with developing ES than Fallout.

But people will always complain when something new doesn't blow their expectations...

What? New Vegas worst story and overall Experience?

Yeah, right XDDDDDD

mkis0072111d ago

I cant even play 3 anymore after new vegas. It spoiled it for me. I love the fact it doesn't force you into any choices.

rigo85822111d ago

I personally found the story and overall experience of New Vegas boring. Especially the main story. The only thing I liked better in New Vegas compared to 3 was crafting and companions. Other then that I do rank 3 and 4 above New Vegas as a whole.

I have about 50 hours logged so far and I've only progressed the story to the point where I met Piper.

I've spent all my time building up Sanctuary and Red Rocket Gas Station. I've patrolled the surroundings a little as well and hunted down some raiders and monsters.

I've had as much fun in this 50 hours as my first 50 on New Vegas.FO4 does new things and if you enjoy customization then you'll really appreciate the game on a whole new level. For example I mod weapons for my residents and I keep armour and cool looking outfits to dress them up. I design defence systems and strategically place guard posts and assign people to them. I have people collecting junk for me. I have people farming for me. The game is great in ways none of the others were. I don't care if the quests are on the same level as Morrowind because Morrowind had a different focus and had technical limitations which prevented it from doing the things in FO4. These games have budgets and if they deviate from those budgets and lose money that can end a franchise. So, you need to consider that they can only do so much and turn out the profits the investors expect to see. For what Fallout 4 is, it hits my expectations.

Halo2ODST22111d ago

I have over 9 days, 12 hours & 28 minutes logged on it, split between 2 playthroughs. Fallout 4 did not hit my expectations, Skyrim did.

Apollosupreme2111d ago (Edited 2111d ago )

Almost ten full days of your life? Why play that much if you are unimpressed? Couldn't you have known after a day or two; 48 hours of game time?

Halo2ODST22111d ago

I like to be through, so I don't judge a game wrongly. I had judged games too hastily when i was younger & missed out as a result.

kaizokuspy2111d ago

@halo you spent maybe $0.27 per hour into a $60 game. By that logic the game delivered on its promise to keep you busy more than any regular $60 game. I don't know, but if I pay $60 for a game and play it 228 some hours, I will Herald it as a great game.

Apollosupreme2111d ago (Edited 2111d ago )

@kaizokuspy really though, right? Who needs 228 and 28 minutes immersed into something to decide that they DON'T like something? If its the honest to God truth then I commend Halo for giving it his all. Steam says I've spent over 50 hours and I can tell you I love this game. I've almost gotten my money's worth and I've not even started the campaign yet($1/hour is my marker).

I also picked up the season pass at GMG on the cheap and so I look forward to many, many, many hours of good times. :D

Halo2ODST22111d ago (Edited 2111d ago )

Just to clarify, it was worth the full £40 I paid, if not worth more, but it didn't meet my expectations that Skyrim set for me, I had so much fun on Skyrim for so long, but fallout 4 isn't as fun & immersive as Skyrim was. (Fallout 4 is a great game, I never said it wasn't)

There is a lot of depth to Fallout 4 if you dig into it but many are not impressed with the building and crafting and just want more action type stuff to do. In my opinion, they are missing out on a lot of the fun. I've had a great time building my settlements, hanging around them to see where the enemies attack from and how my defenses work and adjusting them accordingly. Making the settlements viable places for the settlers to live and work can be a bit of a challenge depending on the location and what enemies generally attack that settlement.

If you just rush through the game going from mission to mission and not exploring, you can finish the game quickly and get a completely different experience to someone who puts themselves into the character and plays it out making decisions based more on their survival and less on the outcome of the game.

For what it's worth, I am at around 300 hours in my main playthrough at level 81 and I've just starting another character to explore the other endings and take advantage of what I learned in my first playthrough.

Apollosupreme2111d ago (Edited 2111d ago )

My base building skills really improve from Sanctuary to Red Rocket Gas Station(my second project).

I walled in the compound more efficiently. I built an epic entrance: A big gate with a corridor of the flame throwers on each side and two machine gun turrets mounted high. Then another gate. Then an armed guard post.

Around the perimeter in for corners I made towers of prefab boxes three high with mounted machine gun turrets pointing outwards.

The enemy is weakened before reaching the gate and has no prayer of making it through the corridor of six flame throwers and two more turrets.

Needless to say raiders don't f' around in the North. LOL

Community building is fun. Everytime a new community member shows up it feels like I scored a goal... Then I give them their standard issue outfit, weapons and ammo, assign them a job and send them on their way. :D

mogwaii2111d ago

What do you mean "deviate from these budgets"?

DOMination-2111d ago

The thing is, all that settlement stuff is cool until you realise it serves no purpose. There's no benefit to spending 50 hours making them because by the end if the game it'll be the same as if you ignored it entirely.

It was Bethesda jumping on the bandwagon of every game needing to have crafting for the sake of it. They should have done more with it or just stuck to gun and armour mods imo.
