Bethesda's old-timey educational videos for Fallout 4 have been pitch perfect. The latest focuses on 'intelligence', which I'm excited about because these kind of stats are the ones I tend to ignore!
To be honest, these videos have been genuinely educational to me. As someone who only dabbled with Fallout 3 but is super excited for Fallout 4, it's nice to get a decent recap on the stats and how they translate to the actual game.
Seriously, why do RPGs do that? Dark Souls is the worst. "Hey this game is super complicated and has all these mechanics you don't understand yet. CHOOSE YOUR STATISTICS RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND NOTHING."
What I'm trying to say is: I appreciate the heads-up.
