    "A better example of “Environmental Storytelling” would be how you can find a ball gag in a character’s room in Fallout 2, or the “Happy Birthday” sign over Rhonda in New Vegas, which implies that Tabitha is still celebrating Rhonda’s birthday after all these years. Spooky skeletons do not equal good environmental storytelling."
    Finding a Mentat while trying to pickpocket Lynette in Fallout 2, the best example of that which I have seen so far. She likes preserving the facade of civility that Vault City has, but the game subtly reminds us once more that she is an hypocrite.

    Just to point out that the Loot Menu mod for FNV is better than the Quick Loot one.

    What a hopeless pile of dog poo I have read better IGN reviews.

    jokes everyone is entitled to an opinion, yours is just wrong.

    New Vegas also had a far better companion interface than 4.

    The Companion wheel was so efficient and easy to use (telling people to wait with two steps=so efficient) while 4 had me suddenly exiting dialogue (before I can even find the option to tell them to wait) all because Hines wants to walk away from conversations in games.

    I have been reading this post for an hour now and I still don't get which opinion you refer to.
    It can't be mine as I did not write this review, just the opening.

    I couldn't even be bothered to finish Fallout 4 and I have to have completed even FOBOS several times, that tells how bad I found this game.

    And when it comes to this topic, opinions are subjective, there is no "Right" or "Wrong". Just your taste and that of someone else.

    Oh... the 'infamous' AccountNameM returns. I guess with someone like Someguy37 making an alt, it was a matter of time before another troll makes their comeback via an alt account.

    Hang on, don't we ban alt accounts nowadays? @Hassknecht

    Not really, I couldn't even care less about you.

    I just know about you since people do cite your original account as an example of lousy bait on the site when I first joined. Still couldn't care less about you with your 'return'.

    Amigo, I'm hot shit around these parts.

    In all seriousness though, nice to meet you too.

    This one?

    Actually, to avoid getting banned (or whatever the rules are), I might as well use my original account

    Excellent review, guys. I really wanted to like this game, but it just sucks. I think my love affair with Bethesda is finally over. I was a major Elder Scrolls lorewhore, but between this game, the garbage that is Skyrim and ESO, I'm just done. It almost reminds me of the hatred and disgust I felt after watching The Phantom Menace. So thank you. This review was very cathartic for me. It's nice to know that there are still Fallout fans who care about the integrity of the franchise.

    D'aww, we should have posted it ourselves and never respond any comments :)

    These people are the reason bethesda is not making the game the true fans want.

    Because they invalidate the saner side of criticism.

    If we stop giving these assholes any attention maybe you can see more positive change in the games

    At least, the OP and several others in the comments are actually backing up NMA's review and pointing out the fallacies of the more tribalistic comments.

    EDIT: I had to roll my eyes at that one comment.

    This reaction really brings to mind the word "bethdrone".

    Who started it, and who uses it? Doesn't really matter, but what does it mean?

    Invalidating anything a fan of Bethesda says because you disagree with them.

    Like I should do here, because I disagree with a fair amount of users here!

    "It's a well deserved shitting at least, and while most fallout 4 fans can only say it's fun because i like it's because it's fun, these reviews/this review at least plainly states the facts it has to back it up.

    F4 Fun fans vs Facts.

    I'm smelling a triggered safe-space needing special snowflake."

    I'm assuming this is from CerberusGate.

    Mind explaining these "facts"?

    The perk system in F4 is being perceived differently by two individuals, which by definition these perceptions are subjective.

    You literally just claimed a fact is an opinion.

    For fucks sale.
