It's the video game we're all playing, all talking about. How are you finding Fallout 4 so far?
The reviews have been uniformly positive, but players have been complaining about bugs, about niggly little details like voice acting, controls, user interface. My feeling? This is a Bethesda game. A lot of this is par for the course, but it pales in significance when you consider the positives: a sprawling, gorgeous universe dripping with detail and intrigue.
I'm loving Fallout 4 so far and I didn't really expect that. I played a little Fallout 3 but quickly abandoned it. Not quite sure why but I never went back to that universe. Fallout 4? I see myself playing that for months to come. I'm not sure what the difference is — it could just be timing and context — but I'm having a real blast with the game. Even aspects of the game people tend to complain about — the combat for example — I'm completely fine with.
I'm sort of getting to grips with the crafting aspect, despite the fact I hate crafting in video games. I'm enjoying tailoring my gun to my own needs and building up my home base. I'm even enjoying the process of levelling my character despite the fact I've heard complaints about that area of the game as well.
