    Yep, just as I suspected, nearly perfect scores across the board. Why people thought this was gonna get like 5's and 6's is beyond me.

    So basically, you can hook up with whoever you want whenever you want and the writing's so bad that nobody responds to this? There's no jealousy between people? No emotion of any kind? Polyamorous relationships are fine by me but if they work exactly the same as that emotionally void system used in Skyrim, what is the point?

    Good to know you've totally changed Bethesda. GG, Game of the Year.

    Near perfect might be better than complete perfect. Although I enjoyed it and was thoroughly invested in The Phantom Pain, I could not say it earned the mantle of 10/10. I suspect I might enjoy this one better, with a more honest look at both its strengths and flaws.

    10/10 GAME OF THE YEAR! THE MOST DEFINING GAME OF THE DECADE!

    Also the Fable games let you be as poly as you wanted. Even let you marry multiple people at once.

    You are obviously disposed against Fallout 4, but you can scour the web and find all the reviews that are more critical of it and thus align with your own views so you feel better about yourself and the review system. But at the end of the day, you may never be fully satsified until you get the game yourself, sit down with it, play it thoroughly and then say: this is what I liked, this is what I didn't like. So you should really seek to do that, before you jump to such conclusions.

    Its a shame so many reviewers compare it to FO3 or Skyrim, and not to New Vegas. I mean one review (RPS I think) was going on about how they had improved companions, but surely they are a step down from New Vegas? Not a single mention of New Vegas in most reviews.

    Also I'm sure the New Vegas got criticised in reviews for being not much different to FO3, while FO4 is more like FO3 but avoids this criticism?

    Read Destructoid's before you say no-one metioned New Vegas.

    Umm... No. The thing I am railing against is the fact that, like Skyrim, the game is a bug fest. Many reviews have highlighted more negatives then positives but still give the game a perfect score. Doesn't that seem a little suspicious to you? To me a game that is borked on launch has no right to be contender for GOTY.

    I'll be honest, I hadn't read all of them in detail. By no-one, I just meant the majority. From what we've seen so far, the majority do not mention New Vegas at all, and consider FO3 to be the most recent Fallout game. Comparison to New Vegas are at least as warranted as ones to Skyrim, surely.

    Destructiod identified New Vegas as a "step in the right direction" from Fallout 3. They got it half right... more like a return to form, as best the developers could with the limited resources at their disposal.

    The good thing about FO4 is that it has reminded me how good New Vegas was. Will have to replay it soon!

    Top kek, Jimmy Sterling praising something most would consider a gaping flaw. What is it with every tard demanding romances, anyhow? At least Beth seems to have fucked them and made them as shallow and pathetic as possible. Good job.

    Also, people, if you think that suddenly the Bethestards will awaken to the fact that their favorite company sells overpriced, unfinished, poorly written shit, you're in for a shock. I wouldn't even be surprised if people started giving RPS and Destructoid shit for having the audacity to write a review that isn't sucking up to Beth.

    Perhaps these reviewers are a little forgiving of some potentially grevious system faults, but on the other hand, I get the impression that you are magnifying the faults to an extent that you seem to want to ignore the strengths, ore dicredit them because you despise this game obviously.

    Fallout 4 will not be the only game contending for GOTY, there are others too, with their own such faults. Metal Gear Solid V was great, but it was unfinished and suffered greatly under Konami's managing, but it can still be up for that title. Bloodbourne was great, but its loading screens were too long, a technical mishap similar to Fallout 4's bugs, maybe, considering how often one dies in that game, they had to have felt it right?

    Perhaps the GOTY title is only reserved for completely flawless games which do everything right and have no faults, gameplay, story or technical wise. But that's a fantasy, and while you are always free to dislike whatever you choose, you can't assume that others have the same views as you.
