I adore this game because it's a masterpiece. It's absolutely immersive. The modding community makes it an incredible experience. The game makes you feel like you're literally making something of nothing. It really is good at making you feel like it's really after a global thermonuclear war event. It's a hopeless, toxic, mutated world and you're stuck in it.
I got a degree in computer science by fixing this game. Unfortunate, but the game itself is aight.
This is not skyrim with guns. This is finding nemo with guns.
A game with very positive reviews, that's nowhere near to be a perfect game. but still one of the best games I've ever played. Story The game starts off by letting you play as a retired U.S. Army veteran (Nate) or a female law school graduate (Nora).According to pre-War records of the Lookout at the USS Constitution, Nate served in the 2nd Battalion, 108th Infantry Regiment, while Nora was a lawyer.The day starts with your family and your handly robot Codsworth. The news on the television is playing the news about US and China tension as usual. Suddenly the investment inside the house turns tense as the news reporter alerts the nation that they're at war. Multiple China ICBMs have been spotted. The Nukes will be dropping soon..The family rushes to the nearby vault tec vault 111 bunker. bearly survive the Nuclear bombs. upon entering vault tec vault 111, they are greeted by the staff and put into cryosleep. In the year 2227, the Sole Survivor and their spouse are reawakened by two seen unknown individuals who take away their son named Shaun and killing the spouse in the process. In the year 2287, our main protagonist is awoken by cryotubes system failure. and manages to escape the doomed Vault 111. and gets to the surface of the bunker to be welcomed at the grim reality of a nuclear wasteland. where he/she is not sure if anyone is alive or not. And from here the game starts our protagonist sets on a journey of survival and in search of his long lost son Shaun. Gameplay The game is basically a first-person shooter simulator. (jk) one of the best parts about Fallout 4 is its the gameplay. You can choose between the first and third-person point of view. Multiple Weapons of different types and calibers to discover and choose from. Multiple types and fashion of outfits to discover and choose from. Great combat mechanics. many enemies and NPCs to be encountered. You will come across many NPCs who will become your Companion if you choose so. A large number of story and side missions. You can build and create Weapons, Armor/Power Armor, Items, Settlements, and Robots. You can grow and cook essential food items. I can go on and on, Fallout 4's gameplay is very extensive yet simple. Pros Great gameplay. Large Playable area. Some very well made DLCs. Large Number of weapons to choose from. Large Number of Armor/Power Armor options to choose from. Large Number of outfits to choose from. A lot of different enemy factions. A lot of NPCs to be encountered. Customizeablity. Modding Support. Easy to get into. A lot of content. Great soundtrack. Great in-game audio. A lot of Easter eggs. Never gets boring, there's a lot to do. Cons A lot of Glitches. A lot of Bugs. Clipping Issues here and there. Some minor Graphical issues. Large Combats are not always fun until you obtain some decent weapons and Armor. Power Armor. The Animals in this game look really really bad. even tho their effected by Radication. Modding The best thing about Fallout 4 or any other Fallout game is its Modding community. which is still making a lot of cool mods. .Which allows the game to have more content and more playability. You can almost change anything with the number of mods there are available for Fallout 4. You Finished the game you say? No problem there are gameplay mods that can alter the whole Fallout 4 Story to be new or much different from the original for your enjoyment. Tons of weapon, armor, and outfit mods to choose as for your play style. Summary Fallout 4 is still worth putting your time into. The pros outweigh the cons. and the cons are minor. so much to do and see. I highly recommend it. if you haven't played Fallout 4 yet. Worth every last penny. Best wishes, happy Gaming...Here are some more of my Reviews if you're interested...
TL;DRGreat Shooter, mediocre fallout game.8/10(my ratings don't mean shit)Protip, if you do buy it: Watch your step, you'll see what i mean later.Long Version:I'm a massive fan of the fallout series as you may be able to tell. But despite my obvious bias for the series, i thoroughly enjoyed fallout 4. Another thing to keep in mind while reading: I will be making several comparisons to Fallout: New Vegas throughout the review.Unlike Fallout: NV, Fallout 4 plays more like a shooter (which i personally have no problem with) but it's missing some of the intricacies that New Vegas had, such as ammo crafting, and a general karma system. A lot of people (including myself) have said fallout 4 is a "good shooter, but a bad fallout game" which indirectly summarizes my thoughts on fallout 4.Weird sidenote: I'd be more likely to recommend fallout 4 to people who liked Dying Light and Far Cry 3 to 5 than i would recommend it to people who liked earlier fallout games.Fallout 4, mechanically is a vast improvement over previous games, in my opinion at least. -I much prefer how power armors are treated like vehicles rather than a giant suit of armor the player wears all the time.-I very much like how Deathclaws are a more constant threat rather than powerful enemies you encounter in specific zones.-The game generally is much more stable compared to NV.*-Weapon and armor modding is more varied, featuring a decent choice of mods for weapons you find.As far as story, tone and depth go though, i will point out now where i felt fallout 4 felt short.-The perk system and levelling up has been a bit dumbed down compared to my previous experiences.-Weirdly, the commonwealth has a lot of wooden structures left, it doesn't have the same rustic decaying charm NV had. (downtown boston recoups on that a bit.)-There's much less variety in enemies. NV had raiders, fiends, powder gangers, legionnaires, great khans while fallout 4 has raiders and that's kind of it. Super mutants aren't nearly the same threat they were in previous games, they're just kind of beefy raiders.-I know it's hard to compete with mister new vegas, but the host of diamond city radio on my first playthrough really turned the game into a snooze fest.-Who gave the assaultron boobs-The sole survivor is a set character with a set backstory (although some in game plot devices can fuck with that), which leaves less room for 'roleplay' compared to previous games.-The game kind of babysits you. Right after spawning you get the change to obtain a set of power armor and a follower, and other followers are not far behind. It kind of goes against the vibe New Vegas had, the commonwealth feels much friendlier, and sadly, littering mines in places that don't make sense doesn't change the atmosphere.There's also a bunch of new features that i personally liked but won't go into because they're best explored on their own. As a closing remark i will only say that i miss the NCR and Viktor.Fun drinking game: Everytime you notice a reused asset from skyrim, take a shot.So is it a bad game? Not at all, i really loved playing it. Just don't expect a similar experience to previous games. It's less RPG, more shooter.*So far Fallout 4 only crashed on me maybe 5 times in total when New Vegas could crash every 30 minutes.
it's fallout 4you install mods, you troubleshoot mods, you play for 2 hours, then you uninstall for 8 months and do it again when you're stoned in the middle of winter.10/10 never trust todd.
There's a reason this is my most played game. Let me say first of all that this is in no way a stand out Fallout title. If you want a game with good story or good attention to the lore, play 3 or New Vegas, this probably isn't for you. But that doesn't mean that Fallout 4 isn't a damn good game. I've returned to it every few months since 2016, it's the reason I even own my computer. I love this game like a son.Let's talk combat. The gunplay is way better in this game than in previous releases, and you can tell Bethesda put a lot of effort into it. More fluid movement, more consistent firing speeds, a variety of sights and optics, and the often overlooked cover-peeking mechanic make for a solid shooter. Sure, it's not as good as a game that's all about shooting, but it works good enough for me to not have any complaints. Plus, with perk and modification progression, you can keep your dinky starting 10mm pistol viable all the way to the end of the game. I also don't want to overlook the melee combat here. While I've never done a dedicated melee build, I will say that the times I have used a knife or a baseball bat were way better than in previous installments. In 3 and New Vegas, there was really no sense of momentum behind the swing of a melee weapon, but the melee weapons in 4 feel heavy and powerful. You can tell that Bethesda used what they learned from Skyrim in designing the melee combat.Let's talk building. Unlike a surprising number of people, I really enjoy Fallout 4's settlement mechanic. With the right combination of mods (which I'll touch on later), you can make some truly stunning work or very small little world building details, whatever your heart desires. I will say that I do most of my building with god mode on. Having it on is comparable to Minecraft's creative mode; you have infinite building supplies and don't have to worry about things like fall damage. Building a little hut and furnishing it with small little details feels very relaxing and rewarding for me. Or, y'know, just build an impenetrable wall lined with turrets around your base. Whatever floats your boat.Let's talk story and writing. This is everyone's main complaint with this game, and really I don't blame them. The story and dialogue in this game is easily its weakest part. Plus, there are many retcons and lore breaks sprinkled throughout the game to make the Fallout aficionado cringe. After playing for 4 years, I really don't care at this point, but to a new player, things like that stand out. The writing could be worse, but it could definitely be better.Let's talk mods. Easily one of my favorite parts of this game is just how many mods there are. I mean naturally, you have your "Big XXL Boobies Physics++" mods, but after you sift through those you get to the really good stuff. The Nexus mods community has turned out some seriously impressive stuff. Personally, I'm really big on weapon mods and settlement building mods. I'm a pretty big gun fan in real life, so seeing them accurately represented in Fallout 4 is pretty sweet. Even cooler is seeing completely fictional guns from previous games rendered in Fallout 4's engine, especially when they have custom animations. As I mentioned earlier, I'm a big fan of the settlement building in this game, so mods like Homemaker (adds more settlement objects) and OCDecorator (adds all junk items as static settlement objects) are must-haves. Mods like More Where That Came From (adds more songs to the radio) and Armorsmith Extended (a ton of armor related features) are also awesome. I'm going to be honest with you, I've only done one unmodded playthrough of this game. I played my first game purely vanilla, and then started modding on the second playthrough, and let me tell you, it was worth it.All in all, Fallout 4 is my most played game for a reason. That reason being, I just love it so much. Sure, it has its shortcomings, but the rest of the game and its mechanics more than makes up for them. To anyone on the fence about buying this game, take it from someone with 4 years of it under his belt: do not pass up the opportunity. You absolutely will not regret buying this game.(Edits just fixed spelling mistakes)
I have played offline and online games from childhood up adulthood....I am 65 yrs old. Of all the games i have played, i would say Fallout 4 is the most awesome game out there. My wife says I,m silly but what does she know, shes always cleaning the house...I think she's a bit OTC ...maybe a bit more so.On the not so good side, I lost the ability to play the Valentine nor any game connected with him like the Railroad, Institute, etc. etc.Thank you for the chance to bring this to your attention...
