    It will be remembered sadly, given its preservation on clickbait youtube lists as a gaming masterpiece. Internet discourse creates opinions held by those who sometimes never even played the games- see Far Cry 3 automatically being assumed to be the best Far Cry (brushing over the controversies surrounding its questionably racist story or the fact that others did the formula better) , or that Arkham Knight had Tank Battles guys so it automatically sucks! I'm not saying these opinions are wrong (even though they are but you can disagree) I'm saying that these opinions and others, such as Bethesda's Fallout games are great aside from 76 and featured brilliant storytelling with rich open worlds (neither of which are true,) are trotted out so much as to be gospel, and were especially so before 76 came out and Bethesda can do no wrong.

    As for us, I would hope people here still dislike it. Harbinger of Decline of gaming, of RPG standards especially, and the portent of everything to come next for most Fallout games bar NV. What's the difference really between nuking Megaton and nuking Appalachia., for example. Same problems prevalent throughout all of Bethesda Fallout.

    And it all started with 3. The moment apologetics of it become the majority here, I think perhaps the point of these boards will be lost (excuse the melodrama.)
