    Wow I forgot what cultural relic that trailer was, I feel like I should be wearing Jencos' and a ball necklace with a Coal Chamber T-shirt.

    I liked parts of the story such as the Super Mutants army and Vault Tec having its own Vault (which makes sense)
    I can even see some BOS members deciding to follow up on the Super Mutants after the death of the Master and the destruction of Mariposa base, if just monitoring them.

    Interesting note is that unlike the manual the game never mentioned that Vault Tec had FEV (though they were genetically modifying creatures which was a bit out of place). Rather Vault Tec's scientists sought to create a cure for mutation induced sterility.

    (if I ever would make a mod using elements from FOBOS these would be it)

    But for the rest this game was pretty stupid, a lot of the design (though I like the Vault Tec robots and turrets) such as the characters, the stupid weapons (basically the nonsense of Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 weapons started here), the stupid dialogue (example: The Ghoul 'balls' dialogue), the bad art design, and so much other stuff.

    It was a lazy cash grab to make money on the Fallout brand.

    The design of the main antagonist was alright, kind of looks like a mix between the Master and Frank Horrigan.

    So is this one of those games where it's "so bad it's good"? Should I attempt to emulate it so I can play it myself? Or should I just stay far, far away even if I'm going in just wanting to have a laugh and see how terrible it is? I can't imagine it's that long of a game since everyone says it's super linear.

    It's not "so bad it's good", it's just bad, there's a reason people call it PoS.
    Try the game if you want to see what is currently the biggest fuck you from the Fallout franchise.
