    Ah yes great hits like blow up megaton...or not, and The absolutely riveting main quest line with such moral quandaries as poisoning the water supply...or not!

    Hey, in the guy's defense, The Pitt and Oasis do have some decent writing. I wouldn't knock someone just for enjoying Fallout 3. There are some passable quests. Now when comparing it to the Tim Cain/Josh Sawyer Fallout games, that's a different story...

    You seem to be confusing enjoying something and it being good. I enjoy watching shitty movies. I enjoyed Fallout 3 for what it was but at no point will I say it did anything good.

    Sure it wasn't Pete Hines idea? Because Fallout 76 looks like the brain child of Pete Hines, at lest given what we know of his distaste for RPG's and RPG elements.

    I found some of Fallout 3's writing OK and if he enjoyed it cool I don't mind.
    I probably am, I also enjoy things that I don't think are good like watching shitty horror or attempting to be humorous

    I'll celebrate Fallout 69 by replaying Fallout 1, 2, Tactics and NV and then walking into highway traffic.

    Not sure about that. During the 90s Interplay Entertainment was a publishing powerhouse. But by the time they published Fallout, they were already in decline.
    And it was Interplay that then started the dismantling of Fallout with FOBOS and postponing Van Buren for FOBOS 2.

    So yeah, no offline play. Saves me some money I guess.

    Maybe. But why would Bethesda senior leadership suddenly want to abandon familiar territory after decades of sticking to the same profitable formula? It's uncharacteristic.

    I just can't help but feel like the company was pushed out of its comfort zone by external pressures regarding multiplayer and microtransactions.

    The video game market in the 1990s was a lot smaller, though. It's not like today where every other person identifies as a 'gamer' because they play console shooters.

    at least Todd calls his audience degenerates, because that's what they truly are.

    and I can't believe people saying that they enjoyed "Fallout 3". I played the whole thing, once, back in 2008 and I can't remember anything I enjoyed. when I think of it, it only aggravates me, all the stupidity in it. I just remembered the behemoths and that's just one example

    It's a matter of perspective. I talked a lot of shit about Fallout 3 before and after release, and despite how bad a game it truly was, it never made me question the validity of living and wanting to drink bleach like the dumb shit Bethesda is doing with Fallout now.

    Todd's 20 year OP of wanting to kill all original Fallout fans is working.

    It's funny, because the reason I have this nick is being angry about how buggy and broken Daggerfall was on release.

    Time is a flat circle of irony.

    I've probably just said this on Discord and not on here so: I do think Fallout 76 looks like a fun game on its own merits for a more casual fanbase. And since it is a spin-off I can't really judge its changes too much. I mean, that's the point of a spin-off. To try something different. The big problem I have is whether or not it is a canonical game. Fallout Shelter is not a canonical game and there's a good reason why: It's silly. As is F76: It's silly.

    I enjoyed Fallout 4 on its own merits and while I think F76 could definitely be a fun time-waster kinda game to run around and teabag 12 year olds in and occasionally get nuked I'm not going to buy it since it isn't the kinda Fallout that I want.

    If it is all canonical, well, I'll just criticize it for fun. Fling a bit of shit at Bethesda. But considering how much they've fucked with the lore as is I just don't see a reason to deeply care anymore.

    Here's another thing to consider for Fallout 76's lore: So, the only other civilized people we'll get to encounter is other players and robots, correct? And the game will have feral ghouls in it. Does that mean that this game retcons ghouls into all just being feral then?

    I don't care for F76, on its own merits, seems kinda fun, but it's not why I play Fallout at all.

    I'm rather skeptical of Online Only games, especially a Bethesda Fallout Online Only game.

    Even 20 years on, people still talk about and play the OG Fallouts and OG Elder Scrolls, there is still a mod community for Fallout 1,2 and Morrowind, okay it's not as big as it once was, but it's still there. Bethesda are also the same company who want you to play their game even after 8 years.

    With all that it mind, if someone does play F76 and it speaks to them like F1&2 did to us, then will they be missing out once those servers go down?

    I get this is a spin off and stuff, but it doesn't excuse the idea that this game has a very limited life span.
    Elder Scrolls online I can almost give a free pass because it is an MMO, but they tried to pass F76 as a community led experience, not as an MMO.

    Fallout 4, for all its faults, I can still go back to and will be able to even decades after release. But future generations are missing out on an experience they could like.

    I have no doubt it'll be more of the same, but I just don't see it lasting for long.
    With out buggy Bethesda games are on release and the fact that Fallout 4 was a huge disappointment to people, I can see F76 going down the drain very quickly, which is a shame for those who actually enjoy it.

    Didn't they say that they were looking into allowing players to set up their own servers or something?

    Fallout 3 was actually my first Fallout game and i hated it. Found it to be a boring, souless, nonsensical mess. Then i played the first two and New Vegas and i got even more angry.

    I have no nostalgia attachment to the first two games and even i am angry to how much Bethesda butchered this franchise.

    On the bright side, Fallout 76 did give a lot for Genna to snark about:
