I avoided the main quest in Fallout 4. That game was, and probably still is unplayable without mods... but there are some very good mods that completely overhaul the balance of the game and make it a decent shooter/looter with character progression. My Fallout 4 run was heavily modded. Every aspect of the game - changed. There was even bullet physics and with a lot of drugs you could strafe out of minigun spray from a certain distance. Seeing the bullets in V.A.T.S. was awesome. What bugs me to this day is that when ran out of things to do I did the main quest... and it bugged. The game literally soft-locked itself and wouldn't complete a quest in the Institute after being out for years. And what was even more bizarre was the fact that the F4 community on Steam did not help when I posted for help. I got a few snarky remarks instead... I had to complete the quest via a console command in the end.
