This may somewhat tie in to the 'worst Fallout game' thread but I felt it needed fleshing out more. In my opinion, Fallout 76 is likely better than Fallout 4. Why? Because it is honest. 95% of Skyrim quests: Go here, kill this, loot this, and return. (different series, and some here like it, but whatever, it's my least favourite game I've ever played so I can't resist.) 95% of Fallout 4 quests: Go here, kill this, loot this and return. 95% of all Fallout 76 quests: Go here, kill this, loot this and do not even return. On the face of it, yep all looks pretty much the same. However, the difference is that in Fallout 4 (and skyrim but irrelevant) they pretended they wanted more than that. See faction choice in Fallout 4, or some meagre offerings in quest solutions being different, even though the game or endings structurally does not differ. Even, the faction choices are hampered by the complete rubbish they provided to choose between (that everyone knows here.) Thus, Fallout 76 is honest at least. It scraps all but the formula that Bethesda has cared about since Fallout 4 (in the Fallout series.) It does not attempt to pretend it is anything but such a gameplay loop, and does not try and deceive people it is an RPG. In not doing so, it allows people to truly understand what Bethesda games are all about really, and can therefore be called a more honest product than Fallout 4. The fact that only diehards (who I observe regularly on other forums that I shall not mention) can defend it thus just shows what happens when this truth is shoved in peoples faces as it has been. Would be interested in hearing your educated opinions on this matter. Though stylistically anathema to most of us as Fallout 76 is, surely we can appreciate that Bethesda is not pretending anymore.
