    Bethesda made sure to drop many clues throughout the game, but what is the truth?

    Truth be told, I always hated this theory! Because if it were true, then it pretty much makes Fallout 4's story flipping MEANINGLESS! Now don't get me wrong, 4's story isn't great, it's mediocre at best. But if you're going to tell me that THIS is true, that it's canon, I'm done!
    And if Bethesda actually pulled that kind of plot twist off, I would've immediately quit playing.
    So much for story investment is what I'm thinking in regards this theory.

    No. Its a shitty cop out from terminal Bethdrones who always have to mental gymnast some 2deep4u 6D chess to explain Bethesda fuck ups, shortcomings and outright being a bunch of lazy fucking cunts.
    Same with Jet in pre war shit, Enclave/Muties/BoS on the East Coast, entirety of F76 etc.

    It would have been cool though.

    Nah man, I agree with what @Canaris said, it would've been an awful plot twist if that were the case!

    That idea is just a parody of the first Blade Runner. Was Dickard a replicant. Do androids fuck electric sheep?
    Was god a psychonaut?

    Awful? Compared to what was in the game already? Nah.

    It would actually make the player in F4 different than all the other retards we play as which are starting to run together. Mark my words Beth will make a change like this soon because they loved doing that shit with Skyrim. You will either be a ghoul or a robot or a psyker.

    Its not the question of "would it be good or bad", its a theory born purely out of a mechanism typical for bethdrones - they always take something that is a Bethesda fuck up or something they simply didnt care enough and turn it into 2deep4u 6d chess deep lore zomg fridge brilliance.

    In this case Bethesda simply didnt gave a single flying fuck about making cohesive and compeling pre war segment. They just glued together something appealing to their ADHD audience and clueless gaming journos - lots of empty feels about muh family plus lots of running, shouting and explosions. Then someone took that obvious case of Bethesda being lazy cunts and fucking turned that into some "hurr durr SS is a synth because look how brief the pre war moment is almost like its fake and artificial" dumbass theory.
    They did the same with Enclave/SM presence in DC, Jet looking like Myron creation despite being on the opposite coast and often locked in a pre war safe, entirety of Railroad ( including the fucking password shit which i will never fucking stop ranting about ), stilted SS voice ( instead of VA doing shit job and bethsda not correcting him/her - muh ptsd ) and lots of other things.
    They did it in Skyrim and F3 - every Bethesda fuck up is simply a fuel to launch some braindead essays where people try to dig up a ten meter deep fallout shelter in a god damned shallow sandbox for kids to excuse developers simply being lazy shits.

    If ' The Railroad ' were on that soul train they would get up offa dat ting and travel to motown.

    The synths would be OMD and would work for Kraft. A flock of seagulls would fly above the trans Euro express.

    Exactly what I was thinking! When it comes to people giving Bethesda a pass for any of their mediocre( >>> trash) writing, it makes Bethesda think what they're doing is a good thing, so that inevitably makes their future titles even more crappy than before. And people wonder how and why it got to this, a vicious cycle!
