    Well there it is. With the release of its Vault Tec Workshop, the actual base game of Fallout 4 has dropped from Mostly Positive to Mixed in the Steam "Recent" reviews category while sitting at only "Mostly Positive" overall.

    This makes Fallout 4 the lowest rated Fallout game on Steam and the lowest rated game Bethesda has ever made as far as I have researched. Congratulations, Bethesda! You've tanked the franchise! Maybe you can make a stupid Vault Tec Thumbs Up marketing poster for that as well!

    One of the top reviews for Fallout 4 (rated most helpful) doesn't even have any words, it's just a link to the Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition store page lol.

    What a disappointing pile of crap.

    Well,this happens if you put same useless crap and delete speech in a sequel.

    Fallout 4 is basically: Yes,No,Tell me more,Help

    Also it's actually Mass Effect dialogue

    "Guys, I don't think we streamlined it enough!"
    Apparently, the storyline is so smart and realistic, people couldn't even bear it, not even talking about understanding it fully.

    Hey, what you expect from such terrible season pass? Affects the game's reputation aswell.

    As for DLC, it's simply a First-Person F:Shelter which is as inconvenient as it's sounds. Shelter at least workes in two dimensions and has better interface.

    Anybody who tried to argue that even New Vegas had its fair share of useless DLC with a purpose to justify this pieces of shit needs to get shot.... or at least get the fuck off of gaming world. Courier's Stash and Gun Runner's Arsenal was released AFTER the 4 actual DLCs was released. This is just unacceptable to focus their resources on this.

    Thing is, while this got a Mixed reviews on Steam, it's probably gonna be much more well-received on consoles. Oh well, at least we're already sure of Bethesda's target audience. I'm so fortunate that the only time I've ever gave them my money was with Fallout 3 GOTY edition (while being 75% off), and maybe with New Vegas + DLCs. Time to avoid the BGS's games like a plague.

    That's preorder bonuses! What's wrong with them BTW? <- a question for blamers.

    Yea I know that. Does it hinder Obsidian's progress in making good, actual content for New Vegas?

    Though, it's annoying to immediately have all this stuff from the start, knowing that I wouldn't buy it. Thankfully Josh Sawyer made a mod to take care of that.

    That's just general TRIGGER warning. TRIGGERED because of cases like FO4's season pass and it's content.

    /EDIT: IT'S 68% now. :O

    Problem I have with them is that they are merely a bait to get people to pre-order games before there are let's plays, critiques, user reviews and ratings. Better pre-order and reserve your money now if you want to get this unique thing!

    Don't pre-order. Ever.

    Yeah, those two DLCs for New Vegas were a little... off.
    However, as someone said before, it came after four DLC packs, which were already high in quality, plus there were cheaper than the Workshop DLCs (I think the most expensive one over here in the UK was less than £4), and with Courier's Stash, you got the Vault 13 jumpsuit, which may just be a nod to the old games, but you could add more to the Lore of New Vegas.

    All of a sudden, you can create a new dynamic for the Courier.

    If I paid £25 for a New Vegas Season Pass, I would be satisfied, I got four really good DLCs, and two "Filler" Material DLCs which still added to the base game.

    F4 on the other hand, had really lazy DLC.
    There are three Workshop DLC, one DLC which is ripped off from a Mod, one which is a rip-off of a previous Fallout DLC, and Nuka World (which I'm having less hopes for every time I breath).

    F4 DLC will not be as fondly remembered as New Vegas. And that's the sad thing, F4 will soon be forgotten, another Victim of hype which it didn't fail to live up to. Its fans will move onto something else soon, we will just stop talking about it after the storm has cleared and it'll just be another game.

    New Vegas on the other hand will always be remembered by its fans. Both are going for a completely different audience, and only one of those audiences care enough to really continue past the Storm.

    FNV doesn't get off the hook. It was done for the same reason and Courier's Stash should have been a free update.

    Actually, I don't understand bethesda. New Vegas proved to be profitable even at it's state at late 2010 and that's also proves that bethesda softworks can sell anything, ANYTHING! Then why BGS gets a free pass on doing such things as oversimplifying core elements as much as possible from previous games, aping things that were proven to not work well in other games. It's clearly not necessary, it's THEIR desire, it's TODD VULT. I mean it's not the first time. Morrowind despite being what it was SAVED BGS from oblivion and nope, they went full retarded to make OBLIVION.

    I put 10 to 1 that BGS got their $$$ bonus despite being 84/5.4 and MOSTLY POSITIVE on steam (and worse now).

    It's not over yet, Nuka World is still in development. I wonder if they actually cut the raider band feature.
    /EDIT: The price on Nuka World seems to be lower than on Fap Harbour...

    Of course they did. I'm gonna bet Nuka World will be a disappointment and people will hate Fallout 4 more.

    Okay, I havent seen anyone ask this so i will:

    Is Bethesda really to blame for most of the shitty aspects of F4? What if zenimax was pulling the strings all along by telling Todd what makes today games "cool" and "fun" and "bestsellers"? Todd might just have been the yes-man to all of it and went along? If this is true then the question begs: How independent Bethesda really is and if they are able to freely make games there own way?

    Someone else might have already posted something like this but I`m not really up for searching the entire forum just to find that one question.

    If Zenimax pushed Bethesda into making Fallout 4 the way it is, then it is still Bethesda fault for not man it up and telling Zenimax that they are the ones who know about games, have been making games for decades and Zenimax should trust them.
    That would be what someone with pride on the products they make would do.
    Now if Zenimax made an ultimatum "If you don't make the game this way you are all fired!" then I guess that could change things. But I bet someone would have leaked it to the press already and Zenimax would be shamed by public opinion.

    Not to mention that Bethesda has been doing this little by little, each game of them have been more streamlined than the previous one. If Zenimax was telling them to do it I bet it wouldn't have taken 4 games (Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim) to have reached the Fallout 4 state. It would have been right there on Oblivion or Fallout 3 (which would have made more sense since it would have been the first Bethesda fallout game, so they had plenty of room to have removed the RPG from the series right from the start and getting away with it easier).

    And if Zenimax were in charge wouldn't that mean New Vegas would've sucked as well but didn't?

    Sorry, but the blame is all on Bethesda Game Studios itself, who have been incapable of making a good game in over a decade.

    It's funny, if you click on Bethesda Game Studios in the developer link on the Steam store page, it shows all the BGS games. The only thumbs down are for Fallout 4 stuff. LOL.

    Seriously, congratulations Bethesda. It's your dumbest game yet. Maybe you can title Fallout 5 "Baby's First Fawwout!"
