    My biggest issues with Fallout are the story but close second is the settlements and the fact how so much of the map is buildable scrap.

    Fallout 4 is like a plastic fruit: pretty and nice to look at, but very hollow and generally unappetizing. You can tell the devs mainly focused more on the "ZOMG 4Kish GRAFIKS" and less on the premise and story.
    I remember being the Fallout fanboy that I am that I considered FO4 "the best Fallout game", about a year ago. (*cue backlash of the whole NMA community*)
    It wasn't until I replayed FO1/FO2 that I realized that FO4 lacks seriously in flavor. Sure, the combat system in FO4 is more bearable than the Sid Meier-esque combat system in the old ones (the one thing I didn't like about Fallout 1 & 2). But does it matter in the looming face of a poorly written story? You don't play Max Payne for the combat system, but for the neo-noir element and thrilling aspects.
    I wouldn't call Fallout 4 a fetid, reeking bag of bear shit. More like a horribly under-seasoned, under-cooked piece of meat that gets a ":(" from me.

    Frankly even the "Fallout 4 has nice graphics at least" thing isn't true.

    Stalker Call of Pripyat at night.


    Fallout 4 at night.


    Fallout 4 has absolute GARBAGE lighting and textures.

    To be fair here, you chose a really poor example of Fallout 4's graphics.

    But I don't think 4 looks good either... I mean the colours and smoother graphics trumps 3 and NV's graphics 100% but it's not enough to be considered ''good graphics''

    No no no no, that's a PERFECT example of fallout 4's graphics.

    Lazy textures, lazy design, lazy lighting, lazy graphics.



    Similar picture to the Stalker one.

    Still looks like garbage, except you now have a giant retarded clunky GUI wasting half your screen.

    I don't like F4 either ^^
    Well the first pic looked incredibly bad quality wise, so i think the new works much better as a comparision shot.

    Even if you blur a picture, you can tell how the lighting, the textures, and overall graphics looks.

    Fallout 4's is just lulz-worthy in terms of quality, its pre-2007 in many aspects.

    Look at that minigun, WHERE THE FUCK IS THE MUZZLE FLASH ON THE GROUND!?

    WHERE'S THE CASINGS!?

    WHY IS IT MAKING GIANT RETARDED CLOUDS!?

    I'll admit I was in a rush, so I just grabbed the literal first (or so) "Fallout 4 night time" picture.

    Admittedly, this is how bad it is.

    In a proper RPG, 'walking away' would result in NPC's being pissed of from being ignored, likely resulting in many many side quests not being available, higher prices for shop keeps, and more.

    Fuck man, Call of Pripyat was a great game. I love the whole scenario of the STALKER series, where the "Zone" is just this vortex that's threatening everything in its vicinity, and how all the stalkers are reacting to it (i.e. Freedom for researching it, Duty to destroy it).
    Somehow, they made a better Fallout game than Bethesda could ever do. Sad.

    The smugness is making him smile so hard it's stretching his top lip over the top of his fucking head. Fuck I hate that photo.

    Yeah graphics sucked ass too, the games texture mipmapping [blurry LOD textures up close, then high res version suddenly popping in right before your eyes] suffers from being designed for consoles because they are underpowered pieces of shit, and then there's the corporate greed that forced the game to come out prematurely, before it had time to be optimized specifically for all platforms, like Rockstar did with GTAV - release xb/ps version then work for 2 years on pc/xb1/ps4 versions, two whole years of optimization after they already finished and released the base game.

    This game stinks of corporate greed.

    Embarrassingly bad.
    Then again, that's no surprise.
