Fallout 4

Recommended Posts

I started playing through skyrim again last year and had completely forgotten pretty much all of it!

Fired up fallout last night to see where I was. Turns out I was trudging through the tediuos nuka cola dlc. Remember why I stopped playing now
It's been brilliant fun going through it again, vague memories of quests but having done oblivion not too long ago it meant the faction quests where slightly muddled.
Just got made guild master of the thieves guild... That I didn't recall the slog for that.

Oh the nukaworld. So much potential so badly done

Yeah. Starts off well enough but soon turns into a pretty slog :(

Had a go of the 76 trial but all it’s done is make me want to go back and play through 4 again. I don’t think I finished Far Harbour so going to go through the main quest line and choose a different endgame then head back to FH.

Went back to play it a bit and found out I had some brightness bug. Everything was white! Managed to find a mod to fix it, then slogged my way through some more of Nukaworld for a bit :lol:

I've gone back to this during my summer off work (and to take me away from FIFA). I'm delighted that I have chosen to have another run through, totally engrossed again.

I bought this for 3 quid... Probably one of the best 3 quids I've spent recently. 3 and NV were 2 of my favourite games.. Only a short way into 4, level 17 and just cleared the warehouses in goodneighbour, but there's still so much to explore

Its a fantastic game.  I'm in the minority view (and for about the thousand-th time on this thread) probably because 4 was my first experience of Fallout but I think it shits all over 3 from a great height.

Haven't started NV yet, will really need to soon.

I started at 3, played NV and fallout 4. The mechanics are dumbed down and the story isn't as enthralling but my god I love 4.
Unlike most other fallout fans I want a South America sequel..tha t should be fun

I think Fallout 3 had just became too dated for me, I played it in 2018.  I also don't really enjoy all the stuff in the tunnels that seemed to be a big part of 3.

I tried 3 at one point around 5 years ago, played it twice but just couldn't get into it. 4 I found easy to get into. Maybe I just had more time to enjoy it.

I dont think 3 has aged particularly well but, as someone who played it on release, its still my favourite.

I found 4 woeful. The story is tragically bad. I never even finished it, it was that bad.

 

NV is the GOAT and always will be. 3 isn't as good, but still miles better than 4.

NV is hugely over rated. Its not as good as 3 or 4

I was quite fortunate with 3 and 4, but the amount of game breaking bugs I experienced in multiple plays of NV put me right off it.

I feel your pain with NV, usually can't be arsed going back to it for a while after an autosave is corrupted and I haven't manually saved for ages. I still eventually go back to it though, and when it works it's a brilliant game.

 

Still need to remember to save frequently, especially when you're about to head into a new area/enter a building. It's the same with Skyrim, to an extent.

 

On topic, I still play 4 every so often, and I always seem to work with the Railroad. In my second playthrough I've ditched Preston at one of the settlements and can't remember which one, at the moment I'm cutting about with a robot as a companion/storage compartment (can't remember where I left Ada).

I loved them all. I also recently bought 76 for a tenner, Haven't played it yet but will give it a go. Bit of a fan boy since I first played 3.

The combat mechanics in 3 are just really poor. Character interaction in 3 isnt as strong as in 4, although Preston's endless regenerated minutemen quests are a pain in the hole.

3 was a decent enough pick up for a few quid via a Steam sale several months ago but its nowhere near as good as 4.

There was nothing wrong with the combat mechanics with 3 when it was released. As I said, it hasnt aged that well, but comparing both on release, 3 wins for me

If you enjoyed the collecting/building element of 4 then you may like 76 but even that wasn't enough to hold my attention.  I might go back to it now that they've done some updates but not sure if it will ever really compare to any of the others.

In fact the best advice I can offer you is to try to not class it as a Fallout game at all to avoid disappointment.

This is probably the best way to approach 4 as well. It's a really fun survival shooter and has a great map to dive around in but the writing is so shoddy and half-arsed that it does a disservice to previous Fallout games.
