I suggested that a GRcadian holds off from purchasing this for a while and and instead enjoys his new Fallout 4 game.

But, because I also said that I've enjoyed playing so far and that I think there is potential here, which is - the horror! - different to most views, I'm "desperate" and "a pleb" :lol: .

Edit: Oh, and a "complete muppet" :lol: . :fp: .


Maybe you're like the Angry Videogame Nerd

You suffer bad games like this and Homefront 2 so that we don't have to :datass:

I was simply highlighting that at this point it's obviously not necessary to spend time with the game to understand it's a bit of a gooseberry fool show and to suggest otherwise is grasping given the outpouring of negativity directed at it. Unless of course all these gamers and reviews are lying, which obviously isn't the case. In fact I'm more inclined to believe the majority of opinions singing from the same hymn sheet regarding Fallout 76 than a handful of folk desperately defending it while continuing brush off any negativity thrown at the game as being unfair and out of proportion.


Depends on what you're judging as fair. It's unarguably not what most people want from a Fallout game, which is a valid criticism, but I also do think that colours people's judgment of the game in all other respects.

Personally I find the disparate reviews between 76 and F4 really odd because both fail pretty miserably at being RPGs compared to New Vegas and even F3, but I enjoy both for roughly the same reasons - the world exploration and base building, which I think are actually better so far on balance in 76. Any criticisms I have of 76 about not being my perfect "Fallout" game also apply to F4.

For me 76 takes the good parts of F4 and avoids its failings as an RPG by not being an RPG. My dream Fallout game would be a sequel in the style of New Vegas, and while 76 is very far from that I'm enjoying it for what it is - which perhaps crucially is also what I was expecting it to be.

Also lol @ Nick

EDIT: Also perhaps of interest to someone, I had my first crash last night, along with a bugged out terminal which meant I had to restart the game. So that's two game restarts in about 15 hours so far. Very frustrating, but actually not as bad as I was expecting :lol:

Nothing wrong with trusting in the majority consensus, but I don't think that stretches to calling anyone who is playing the game a complete pleb. Seems a weirdly impassioned stance for someone who hasn't played the game to take against someone who is enjoying it.

Don't think that pic applies in this case. Fallout 76 is obviously a bit gooseberry fool. No faux rage for my part at least, more disappointment.


Fair enough - but we're still going to lynch ORKN up by his goolies right?


Thought we doing that regardless?

As it appears I'm going to get lynched, you've forced me to reveal that I am in fact the Bethesda Shill. It's a village power role that prevents me from being night killed but only if I adamantly defend Fallout 76.

I think Hexx is trying to get me lynched because he already tried and failed to kill me in the night. I think he is a wolf.

You're right, I have ABSOLUTELY NO intention of playing this game.

I don't need to play it, the agreed consensus is that the game is bad, it's been universally banned by critics, the people who get paid to test the games.

Anyone who puts their £50 on this instead of something like Red Dead 2, God of War, Monster Hunter World or Spider-man is a complete muppet.

EG's comments section for the review is comedy gold. Resetera would be proud.

"Those reviews don't matter"

"They're just someone's opinion"

"5 is average"

"You've not even played it"

Those reviews don't really matter to me though! They're all just opinions - and 5 is average anyway.

You should play the game before you judge it

As someone who has been a Fallout fan since the beginning I don't need to play Fallout 76 to see that it's quite clearly an embarrassing turd that Bethesda should flush away, forget about, then get back to the drawing board.

Should Elder Scrolls fans be concerned about the decline in quality of Fallout games?

They're by the same studio, right?

It doesn't bode well, but with any luck Bethesda won't bury their heads in the sand, actually acknowledge this cluster strawberry float and pull their socks up.
