Fallout 4 postponed the release of its GECK solely so fans would be more likely to buy their microt-

    -ransaction DLC bullshit.

    Before paid mods, there were the 3 DLCs: Pay2Win 1: Robot Companion Factory edition, Pay2win 2: Broken Weapon Enchants, and Pay2play 1: Evil Playthrough.

    And before those, there were the Wasteland Workshops, pay2play packs of items that should have been in the base game to begin with.

    Remember when some Fallout 4 fan used the FANMADE GECK to create a "Build your own robots" mod that was better than the Automatron DLC AND didn't break the main quest like the DLC did until a patch came out to fix it? It's like Bugthesderp WANTS to go from "Charmingly incompetent" to "Disgustingly scammy and scummy".

    I'd argue that Bethesda have been disgustingly scummy since Oblivion. They've never been "charmingly incompetent." Their efforts at streamlining their games towards the lowest common denominator has always contained a sense of smug, self-serving cynicism towards their fans. Oblivion contained ridiculously over-priced DLCs like horse armour; basically microtransactions before they ever became a thing.

    Fallout 4 and the Creation Club are ten years of evolution of that greed and contempt for the player. Bethesda have been progressively getting more money-grubbing and their games have been getting more dumbed down. It's really sad.

    No fucking surprise there and yet it's STILL less evil than EA and Eidos.
