We’ll see how it unfolds. It sounds like the gameplay has changed and that might make it less enjoyable for me. Also Four was just ok for me. 3 and New Vegas were a blast though.

I thinking about buying fall out 3 and New Vegas and start over but the first 2 hours of starting a new game is tough cuz never now what to spend my skill points on and what a good way to develop my character. Same goes with any game that you need to use skill points never now where to spend them

I usually just don't spend them for the first ten levels or so. It makes you start off super weak, but at least you don't hose yourself later

did you buy Fallout 76 or Fallout 3 or New Vegas? Fallout 76 is HUGE. It was originally 48gb but they put out a 48gb patch for the Xbox yesterday. F3 or FNV shouldn't take 9 hours to download. They use the 360 platform on the One.

A bit about me... I can say in my life I have over 25,000 hours in the Fallout world.... Fallout 4 alone is over 10,000. Now that I htink about it... those numbers are probably pretty low, as I have played Fallout 3, New Vegas, and 4 on both the Xbox and PC platforms. I know on the Xbox One, I have over a week gameplay with one character in Fallout 4. I love Fallout. I buy the stuffs... I have a Fallout tattoo... I love Fallout. So, with that being said...

I bought this on pre-sale when it was originally announced, like the first hour it was available. The more I heard about the game in articles and hearing stories of the BETA sessions, I was totally turned off this game. I am not a online game player. I love the single player games that Bethesda puts out. They are massive, I can spend hours exploring or doing missions or just killing things. Doesn't matter, I can do what I want. Fallout 76 isn't as bad as people say. Yes, its glitchy. Bethesda games are glitchy. I think they use user testing instead of in house testing. Back to the game... I was completely surprised at the fun I had playing this game. Is it a traditional Fallout game? No. It is a massive online survival game set in a Fallout world. One quote I read is that its as wide as the ocean but as deep as a puddle... sums up the game perfectly. If you enjoy a survival game where you get to explore a new world while needing to be aware of your health, food and water levels, maintaining your armor and weapons, and needing to sleep. Then this is your game. Its huge. It has missions, most if not all are started by robots or computers. There are signs of life after the bombs fall, but the only living people are other online players, so there are no NPCs. To me, this is a major issue, no reason you couldn't have had survivors still out there besides the people from the Vault. But I have spent at least 15 hours in this game, and I actually enjoy it. Its fun. I am hoping they add back some of the Fallout elements in future DLCs. There are so many limits at the start due to server issues. One being your carrying limit and stash limit. Both are very low as the server is what saves your stash as you may have to bounce from server to server, so you need to be able to wary of your weight limits. I think the NPC issue is due to server limitations as well. Hopefully they can sort that out. But there are plenty of new creatures to kill and adventures to have in this beautiful Fallout world. Oh... the radio station plays new songs... OMG! they have new songs. its great.

Not possible...hahaha, but I know you played the game a lot.

Good write-up. As someone who has never played the game, you made me want to try it (but I won't, because I don't have 10,000 free hours laying around)
