    Some on here have very eccentric views on Fallout 4. To most, Fallout 4 is an amazing game which was only ever surpassed by Fallout 3 in quality. To others, it is the de facto game of the generation. However, I am here to praise Fallout 4 because of it's brilliant game design and also to bring light on many things it does perfectly.


    1. Gunplay

    Fallout 4 has without a doubt, the best gunplay in the franchise only rivalled by Fallout 76 in quality. This gives the gameplay a smooth, consistent sheen of fun and adrenaline packed moments. The animations all feel smooth and seamless with animations that feel responsive and fluid. In past Fallout games, your character would shake and perform other oddities while shooting. In Fallout 4, this never happens.

    2. Companions

    Not only does Fallout 4 outdo it's predecessors in gunplay, but it also manages to outdo them in companions too. Never before has the franchise had such interesting characters to travel alongside the player. We have Piper the eavesdropping, snooping, reporter, Nick the detective robot who helps the player locate his/her son, Cait the cagefighting, orphaned redhead. All of these characters make the cardboard cutouts from earlier games look like well.... cardboard cutouts. You can tell I've been spoiled by Fallout 4.

    3. Mechanics

    Not only did Fallout 4 bring the quality-of-life changes to the series that everyone never knew they needed (such as quick loot), but it also brought the settlement system to Fallout 4, which added much in the way of replayability and more time spent on one playthrough. Not to mention the absolutely phenomenal Power Armor mechanics, which easily beat out any other game in terms of fun.

    4. Sound design

    Not only does Fallout 4 beat out the other Fallout games in the other aspects though, it even goes the full mile and manages to be superior from the sound design. Every sound in Fallout 4 has impact and you can feel it. Sounds have much more texture and quality than past Fallout games.

    5. Perks

    Fallout 4's perk system is much more simplified than previous entries. On the surface this seems unacceptable, but once you truly admire it for it's advantages, you learn that is actually an amazingly crafted system. It avoids the CHR 1 Speech 100 oversight from New Vegas while also being much superior in the variety and importance of it's perks then say, Fallout 1 or Fallout 2. Each perk is worth taking and important to your gameplay, and no perks are superfluous or pointless.


    So to top this all off, if any of you haven't played Fallout 4, it's definitely worth a try. Buy it and I'm sure you will love it. It's easily one of the best games of last generation, and truly a legendary game. A top 3 Fallout game at the very least, even a top 2 in some regards.

    Okay but most people here loved fallout for its lore, world and tone which fallout 4 craps all over.

    We also loved fallout for exploring towns and making choices which would change the ending for the town and in the case of new Vegas even some of your friends you made along the way. Which fallout 4 doesnt do.

    Fallout 1 and new vegas are also loved for quality writing which... cmon fallout 4 comes off like it was an 8 year olds first draft.

    1,2, and new Vegas are also loved for the extensive worldbuilding. Stuff has happened before the games start and with the ending system stuff happens after too.
    In both fallout 3 and 4 the new settings have almost no history to them. In both cases we have a world where the bombs fell and then nothing almost happend for 200/210 years. And with the lack of proper endings in 3/4 nothing happens after either.

    Fallout 4 is okay as a mindless shooter and even then it's incredibly bare bones. It is not worth playing for a fallout fan. At least not fans of the fallout games that are made to be fallout games.

    Nah. Fallout 2 did that MUCH more.
    Ah, you mean Redhead 1 and Ghoul Mexican 2?
    Fallout 1 is about as entertainingly written as any other B-movie apocalypse flick
    New Vegas writing is about as entertaining as Borderlands
    Not at all. In many aspects it's the best Fallout game. Ones I've listed in the OP.

    It also had good stuff in it unlike 4. But you'll notice I never praised 2 in my post (except for worldbuilding) because it's easily the worst one of the "good" games.
    Oh so were being reductive to the point of absurdity?

    A proper troll wouldnt out themselves as not worth talking to so early.

    Allow me to be reductive as well

    Fallout 4 is just "kill. Shoot. Return." With no substance or artistic value whatsoever because I hate it and its bad.

    That's why it's dogshit and never talked about outside of here?
    Fallout 4 was beloved by so many more people. That alone makes it more worthy of anyone's time.
    At least what I said was true. You're just playing dumb at this point.

    You clearly exist outside of established reality. New vegas is the popular fan favorite. You need only look at the respective modding community for each game.
    Okay retard.

    Ah yes, Fallout 2, the game that is not talked about except here. And the RPGCodex. And many other forums. And it's getting some of the best total conversion mods. No one likes this game outside of here.

    Those Eastern Europeans have better taste than you apparently. At least they don't waste their time modding shit like Fallout 4. :smug:

    Incorrect. I am a Bethesda Fallout enjoyer. I have infallible tastes.
    Where did I say that?

    The tone and context of this statement implies it's worth less because of who made it and where they're from.

    I dont expect you to understand how context and tone affect the meaning of your words after all you're clearly a mental defective.

    Nah. I'm trying to make the point that they don't own modern hardware, so they can't run and likely wouldn't have played current games like Fallout 4.

    if they did, they would have modded that instead.

    For more examples, you should see its other posts on how NMA apparently ruined the franchise before Bethesda acquired 3 by sabotaging Tactics and POS, and how the site apparently organized death threats & bomb threats to Bethesda too.

    Edit: I wonder if it is aware that the implications about Eastern Europeans only living trucks is pretty bigotted too.

    Also implying that Eastern Europeans don't have modern hardware at all is pretty racist as well.

    OP: I like [BAD GAME]
    ME: okay here's what the game was missing and why we dont like it
    OP: *realised he cant refute anything I just said
    *Attempts to insult a game he knows I like by being reductive to the point his statement loses all meaning


    Literally what were you trying to do here? Because it wasnt to have a conversation. The only explanation is you're a troll.
