All I know is this: The way ME and traditional RPGs represent their worlds is far more immersive than whatever F4 does. And any notes, journals, and computer terminals that I have read in my 80 hours of Fallout 4 have not even come close to covering the vast amount of information that even Bioware's Mass Effect Codex or dialogues cover. Fact is, you might be able to pull off only having information from silly notes and terminals - but that isn't immersive either if you consider that most people don't write down everything neatly on a computer terminal or hand written diary as though they are expecting someone to stumble upon it. There is nothing wrong with having a Codex in a modern RPG, in fact quite the opposite. Witcher 3 had its bestiary, Pillars had one, and so many others. It is even necessary in my opinion. If you think these things aren't immersive then perhaps what you really want is a game from a different category, like an FPS.
