Sounds to me like you maybe blinded by nostalgia. I would like to point out that Bethesda has no respect for the original Fallout's or New Vegas. Shit, that fucking Monopoly game didn't even mention New Vegas. Does not surprise me given that we all know that Bethesda hates New Vegas for out staging and being more beloved then their poor excuse for a Fallout game. Bethesda also tried to retcon the hell out of the original Fallout with Fallout 76. Also, a lot of people out right hate how whorish the marketing and merchandise for Fallout has been under Bethesda. One of Fallout's themes was how the consumer and corporate culture helped lead the world to ruin. Not to mention the nasty stuff that corporations like West-Tec and Vault-Tec did for the Enclave. Now, under Bethesda, Fallout has become a parody on what it used to satire.
