    I know your pain and frustration and there is nothing I can say that can make it better.
    But eventually everything ends, even an IP like Fallout.
    They might want to keep trying to reinvent it, distancing it further from what it used to be. But even that has a limit.

    I kind of compare it to Star Trek and Star Wars. The IP owners don't want to admit it but the signs of dying are there.

    I have long since accepted that the franchise will most likely not return to any form resembling actual quality. So i just roll my eyes at what Bethesda is doing, and play 1, 2 and New Vegas.

    I did enjoyed Bethesda's utter incompetence with Fallout 76, that was hilarious. If they are gonna fuck up the franchise, at least make it funny. Specially when it pisses off fans of their older Fallout games, so that they can feel just an ounce of the frustration fans of the first two games felt with Fallout 3.

    "Bethesda, why did you ruin the franchise you created?"
    If only they would realize the irony the moment they say it.

    It's true; this one too:

    But it only hits home if you've tasted the stuff before.

    *They have the name, and a bunch of people who don't know what it tastes like—but they've heard stories...

    Someone should do a Vegemite Challenge video on Youtube, and feed them Nutella from a Vegemite jar... to get their reaction.
