I know we have a '76 thread, but I feel like talking about older FO games, damnit.

Just started FO4 like a week ago; it's the first game I'm playing in-depth on my PS4 Pro (i.e., it's not Megaman or Rogue Legacy). Loving the experience so far. On the surface there's not that many differences between this and FO3, but the feeling of just wandering the Wasteland, discovering new locations, meeting NPCs, fucking picking off raiders, running from creatures, and feeling immersed is something I wish I could mainline, it's so much fun to me. Barely into the main quest now (just arrived at Diamond City, talking to all the merchants now--on the side I've helped a few settlements and slayed some ghouls), and excited to sink some time in it over the next few weeks. Would like to get through most of the game before '76 comes out so I can join you all there early, but playing only 1-2 hours a night, so that probably won't happen.






Controversial opinion alert: ...I don't think New Vegas was that good.

When you get to Diamond City, just remember the band won't actually take the stage until 8 pm.

I really want to go back and finish Fallout Tactics. Its the only one I never finished, but I did like it. The difficulty near the end was murderous though.

The exploration in these games is probably my favorite of any game series, ever. Coming up on weird radioactive shit and exploring ancient nuclear bunkers is just the best. The Glowing Sea in particular is one of the coolest things I've ever experienced in a video game.

Fallout 3 might be the worst game I’ve ever played. Loathe this series. Bethesda is trash.

Was it the glitches? The green color palette? The RPG elements? The weight of the character slowing you down?

I hate literally everything about its mechanics. It’s a broken, unplayable game as far as I’m concerned. Like pretty much all Bethesda games.

You're not exactly wrong.

New Vegas is still the best one.

I need to go back and beat 1, 2 and Tactics. As Burt said, those older ones are tough going.

I played through 1 and 2 several times. I loved how different the play experience could be depending on how you built your character. This has unfortunately been lost in the later games.
