Agree with you. Fallout 3 was better than Fallout 4 except in the gun-play. Atmosphere, dialogue, quests, characters, and even the overall story - Fallout 3 did it better, much better in fact. Actually that is all I was hoping for with FO4: I wanted more of the same because I certainly didn't think they'd match Obsidian's writing with New Vegas and Fallout 3 was acceptable enough coming from Bethesda. After seeing Skyrim's total lack of depth and role-playing, I hoped FO4 would be at least the same level as Fallout 3 but sadly it is not. I am baffled by people that think Fallout 4 is "like Fallout 3, but better" because it absolutely is NOT better. And so it is that the end of days has arrived, when NMA began defending Fallout 3 and recognized it as "not the worst Fallout game" and "a better game than Fallout 4."
