Synths... umm... they were used as enemies?
No, what's REALLY funny is, it did it better. A lot better.
Bethesda didn't even try to make the player think about transhumanism(Which is, i believe, a strong theme of BoS) or the very real dangers of blind scientific development which lead creation of true A.I or whether it's time that humans should be replaced with another life form for good.
I don't think Fallout 4 has a theme or plot. It has lot of cool stuff in it yet never scratches the surface of any.
Summary of Fallout 4: Syths lives matter, BoS is Schutzstaffel, old world people just wanted to be happy, it's okay to be a patriot even after 200 years later, humans are badass...
Bethesda doesn't try anything interesting, for one that's a good thing because they would have screwed it up.
Good question Walp. The Synths and the Institute as a whole are so poorly developed and thought out, it's kinda embarrassing. The very same Institute made the Commonwealth Super Mutants because reasons. By and large, the Synths fall into this reasoning as well. The amount of missed opportunity in FO4 is staggering honestly.
A long running Blade Runner joke/reference? Deckard is a Synth! :-O They should have gone 180 and revealed that your player is a Synth. Real you died. Tragic.
If they were going for references from other games and movies then why not make your son like Darth Vader, "No, you are my father/mother!".
I think "turns out that the PC is a synth" was almost certainly considered during development, but they probably thought it as a pretty predictable twist and so rejected it.
You know, the son becoming old and the leader of the institute was kind of obvious too.
Well the son not dying was super predictable, I already knew the son wouldn't die the moment they announced he would have generated looks of both parents(sweet little lie). I knew they wouldn't waste that, of course the whole game was wasted potential with parts taken from other games and awkwardly bolted on.
Agreed. And I knew the son would become leader of something, when I found out about the institute it clicked together straight away.
Well if the son would've died then Fallout 4 wouldn't have any reason to exist...you know that would've been great but then we wouldn't of been able to tear it a new one like we all have been doing.
True, but still would be far better.
Well the Son's looks are indeeed based on that of the parents, but they made the retarded decision of giving him a thick beard and the same hairstyle no matter what so he ends up looking very similar to everyone because the beard covers most of his face.
I can't be the only one who thinks Shaun looks like James when he's an old guy. It could be a coincidence or a callback with the roles reversed but I dunno.
They're meant to look the same.
The funnier thing is Wasteland 1 did it first.
Being cyberpunk, CD Projekt RED may run into this theme sooner or later with Cyberpunk 2077, at which point Fallout 4 will be left in the dust.
Well, Myron said that "in the new climate" they couldn't grow the veggies needed for the best drugs.
The "new climate" is a arid desert, even without a nuclear fallout, it would still have problems growing vegetables.
