    _Hey! I got an idea! Let's take the corpse of this renowned RPG franchise that used to be loved for it's great depth and dark story (before we killed it, lol) and do the worst monster cock anal raping without a condom or lubricants in the history of video games!

    _Great idea! Add in some slapdash multiplayer and microtransactions for good measure! I wonder how much our loyal fanbase of inbred inbeci... - oops, I mean, customers - will pay for this crap?

    _$60!

    *Most hated AAA release of the decade. Some reviewers flat out give up on reviewing the game because it is far too awful to play it.*

    _$40!

    *Video game related forums and video platforms everywhere flooded with memes and endless rants mocking and dissecting the terribleness of Fallout 76.*

    _$35!

    *Bethesda Softwork's reputation irreversibly ruined and hype for their future releases is absolutely tanked.*

    _Free Weekend!

    *Crickets*

    _Free to Play!

    *Yawn*

    _Fuck it! We will pay $10 for anyone that subjects themselves to playing this shit!

    I've already played it for a few years when it came out.

    I refuse to waste any more time into that souless piece of shit.

    I'd rather look at the ceiling in depression, I'm less depressed that way.

    Here's a quick one for ya.

    Imagine Fallout 4, but take away anything good you may have liked about the game. Now be stuck in a map 4 times the size with no one to talk to.
    You have Fallout 76.

    Short version, it's Fallout 4 without any of the positives.

    Someone did write a review about this game here on NMA and that included the Wastelanders DLC.

    Unfortunately I forgot the user's name.

    They actually remember this guy?

    Plus apparently the Brotherhood of Steel will be officially in the game soon. Oh boy. I'm sure there will be a lot of additions that make Glittering Gems crack. Never forget it was the Zoomers and 76 that finally did Fallout in. As it was predicted by the Founders that are likely dead now.

    And watch as the game goes from the worst title Bethesda has ever published to the best Fallout ever!

    Of course we on NMA will be called all kinds of names again for being so negative such as living in the past or being anti fun, well at least we did not even pay out a full amount for a game that was barely a beta and still requires several releases to have some kind of content other than just farting around and play make believe.

    My simple response to most Fallout 76 fans is to go back to school and tell all your friends they are the generation that helped destroy all the things I like. Or I just look at Serifan and frown and shake my head in a disapproving manner.

    According to a quick Google search, a walk from California to West Virginia is estimated to be 819 hours. 221 hours by bicycle but I doubt Power Armor-wearing individuals could find bicycles that support their weight.

    How would the BoS, just formed or if later in the timeline, barely surviving the war against the Master's Army, find the justification, resources and manpower to reach West Virginia? My goodness, Bethesda is desperate to milk BoS fanboys.

    The justification was actually already in the base game - some female officer named Taggerty or something was friends with Maxson pre-War. Maxson talked to her over satellite and convinced her to form a chapter of the Brotherhood in Appalachia. I guess some of them survived the scorched plague or whatever the fuck and moved and are coming back now.

    Pretty wild coincidence that this organization just keeps popping up anywhere literally no matter what despite being pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

    I love this thing that never gets mentioned in the games later in the timeline. Totally doesn't mean this just some bullshit Bethesda pulled out of its ass to try to justify BoS being everywhere.

    Flanderizing is not the right word but Bethesda's people reduced Fallout down to a couple of recurring themes and elements they think Fallout is all about just like fantasy for example to them is all about wizards, orcs, giants, dragons etc.

    What average people thing certain genres and franchises are about based on a few descriptions they gotten.
