It's been 6-7 years, and I actually feel bad for still preferring this game.

    Didn't they get another company to do the actual combat mechanics or am I remembering wrong?

    To me Fallout 4's combat just LOOKS better but that's not a praise, it's a thing we should expect with the advances of video gaming technology. Mechanically is pretty terrible.

    They got ID Software (Doom) to make the combat mechanics.

    I remember they had them as support, how much of ID is in Fallout 4s combat though? Did they just help out, or have they done everything for them.

    Who would have thought some 20+ years ago, that Fallout will get a Doom team behind it making the combat for the game ...

    IMO, its kinda hard to be an RPG, and be realtime at the same time.

    The whole idea of an RPG, is you play a role (Hence the R).

    The second the player can actually improve that role by mere reflexes/knowledge of something, it kinda ceases to be a roleplaying game.

    No matter how smart you are, how fast you are, or how strong you are, the player has 0 ability to decide who wins or loses in Fallout 2, assuming both sides are equally matched.

    You might try for an eye shot...Then have you gun explode in your face.

    Or you might get a lucky crit and 1 shot the fucker.

    Depends on what your CHARACTER has in terms of stats.

    In this area, 3-NV-4 kinda fails.

    Right out of the doc's place, assuming I picked up an AMR, I could kill a deathclaw, easy peasy.

    Even if you tag, say, energy weapons, and get power armour AND a turbo plasma rifle, a deathclaw is probably going to kill you easily in fallout 1-2, unless you get those levelups.
