    Not everything is going to be perfect but if we expected the game to be super realistic then we'd basically be playing real life.

    I don't expect it to be realistic, only believable, plausible, and not insulting your intelligence, because a theme park is easier to design than a coherent and credible game world.

    It's not so much as realism but common sense and logic.

    Fallout 4 is ridiculous, so I'll make it more ridiculous. Like changing Curie to be naked and fat. Godd bless mods.

    Wow Curie ever since you got a human body you really let yourself go(this reminds me of that one futurama episode where Bender turns into a human and becomes overweight).

    Bah how casual, you should've made her naked and pregnant.(Just kidding around with you Mr. Fish ;))

    Actually, I wanted to turn them pregnant but the sliders for it just makes them look weird. It doesn't look even remotely natural. Gonna wait for a better mod to come out or better slider settings for the program I'm using before I can turn them all preggers. Oh and I got the Macho Claws mod too. Haven't tried it yet. I also turned Stimpaks into injections of Mountain Dew and Radaways into Dorito bags. I got a mod that changed radroaches into molerats but they are completely still and slide across the ground on their sides. Oh and I turned the moon into Nicholas Cage.

    I also turned some paintings into paintings of Nicholas Cage.

    ...

    I also got a mod that turned Behemoths into abominations of Nicholas Cage.

    I just got ton of mods to spice up the game and well, from what I've seen so far it's going to be a great experience.

    Oh and The Brotherhood are now nazi's. :D

    [edit]

    I turned everyone I could turn into a big beautiful woman.

    I don't know German and I don't really want to mess with the radio in case I decide to listen to it for NPC dialogue.

    Anyway, some screens to show some of it in effect

    Tumblr approves of those big and beautiful women. Also I wish someone would make a Nick Cage moon replacer mod for New Vegas. That is no blue moon Dean Martin nor is that a Lenin face No Bark. That is Nick Cage's glorious face! :V

    Got a couple of more screens for you guys. I can't wait for proper modding tools to be released so I can make it even more bizarre.

    Mmmmm those big beautiful women, well there's nothing wrong with more cushion during intimacy.

    Is there a mod to turn the zombies into Zoidbergs like that one Left 4 Dead mod?, should of changed the sun to Gaben's face instead. I want a mod that gives me a black eyepatch for my right eye and some woodland camo, the game isn't complete though if you can romance aliens like Bioware games what's wrong with you Bethesda?

    There is a mod that changes the audio for Mirelurks into Zoidbergs weird sound and one that changes their colour schemes to be a bit more vibrant. I got them too. Mirelurks aren't even remotely scary any more.

    [edit]

    So, I just went to The Institute and talked to Father for the first time. This is the biggest cringe the game has ever given me. I mean.... Everything... Everything's just so damn awful about it. The way you character flip flops between emotions. The way you can so easily just accept him as Shaun. The way Father says that "oh people just misunderstand us." Like, they don't misunderstand shit! Those motherfuckers sent synths to kill all of University Point because they wouldn't hand over one person. They've been kidnapping and presumably killing people and replacing them with synth infiltrators and he's got that gall to stand there and say that the reason people are scared of The Institute is because they're just scared of what they don't understand. No bitch. They're scared because you're a bunch of fucking murderers! And I couldn't call him out on it! And oh, we're not going to talk about the way you tried to lure me with a synth child Shaun and the only reason you stepped through the door was because it malfunctioned. Nooo. Let's not bring that up again.

    Awful.

    Dreck.

    Jesus that was bad.
    I had to pause several times throughout the dialogue in order to digest the stupidity before moving on. I would argue that this is way worse than any main quest dialogue in Fallout 3 even.

    [edit 2]

    So, I met Shaun as he lay dying. Had a little heart to heart with him. Then I shot his head off and ate him. After the ending I went back to Sanctuary and slept in a bed before crafting some shit and then noticed the Lovers Embrace thingie happened and noticed Piper was lying next to me. Heh. So she fucked a mother who's belly contained a bunch of flesh of her son. Piper will never know.

    That part feels like the most important part to me. Personally, I don't mind the other stuff much. A little lack of consistency and a tad of above-and-beyond levels of randomness tend to stay in acceptable bounds anyways if the writing is already good. Not insulting the intelligence of the player is a pretty stern requirement in an RPG game, either way.

    The point is, if their writing gets to the levels of not insulting intelligence, there's the risk of making it too complex and "book-like" to the main playerbase, which is the one that came in with Fallout 4. In which case, it will feel more like Witcher and Dragon Age, which will repel the Call of Duty and casual crowd, which is bad for Bethesda's business.

    Every suggestion or good idea needs to go through the filter of "would it appeal to the shooter crowd?" or "would this catch on it popular culture easily?" which is partly why Fallout 4 had so many cats - it appeals to the modern Internet culture of, y'know, cats. And I love cats, but that's not the point.

    This means Fallout, for Bethesda, must not go into religion, race or politics, must be light hearted, fast-paced, diverse in tone, action-packed, and must continuously stay relevant in popular culture. It must not have story depth for fear of attacking the pacing or alienating a casual gamer with excessive lore. It must have a lot of features to keep large audiences interested without having to risk making them not buying because they heard it was too hard. It must, above all, convey an open narrative to allow for DLCs and expansions to draw the playerbase back in.

    Does this sound like Fallout to you? No? Too bad. This is how it's going to go. But I like to spectate the fruitless attempts at making Fallout something more than a pre-made factory product, so keep on fighting.
