    Just look at f4 and f76 these games are way too colorful and the music. What the fuck is up with fantasy music. Bagpipes in fallout?

    I kinda liked the bagpipe music, as misplaced as it was. Afaik, it only plays in/around Diamond City and establishes a bit of a civilized feel that Beth's FO-interpretations have been sorely missing. It's easy to forget, FO1 and 2 are also about civilisation reestablishing. If anything, FO4 clings too hard to the "everything is still nuked"-trope

    Which is part of Fallout-franchises big problems - AS a franchise: in FO1 the theme is *allready* reestablishment of civilized society, little by little. By FO2 there are green lawns, forests, not only budding city states but fully fledged expansive republics. The savage no mans lands are shrinking as borders push outwards

    Following this narrative, it would not take long for most striking traces of nuclear holocaust to finally become entirely cleared away, all rubble removed, all cities rebuilt. Fallout would no longer be Fallout. Keeping the "spirit" of the game equals going against the narrative of the game. It's a catch 22.
    *whispers* which is why the game has to die *whispers*

    (and for the record, FO4 sucks as anything but a mediocre shooter, just so you don't misinterpret this as FO4 apologism :V )

    meh to be fair it is set 210 years into the future. problem is the tone doesn't exactly fit with the desolate and empty commonwealth. to me, fallout is best as a western. that way you can have time move forward but keep the lawlessness and wasteland feel. and its always had western elements which is something 3&4 are sorely lacking.
