Yes, the problem with Fallout 4 is exactly the same situation as with Hitman Absolution, not a bad game on its own, but people buy the certain product with a name like “Fallout” or “Hitman” for a reason, because they associate a genre and a certain playstyle with that name. When you play 4 Hitman games in that are similar to one another and then get Absolution which is totally different, you’re bound to be shocked, and not in a positive way, so you shit on this game. Same deal with Fallout 3 and 4, especiallly 4.
Sadly, I think we should just accept the fact that Fallout as we knew it is gone. New Vegas gave us some hope, but after the metacritic score drama I think that this ship has sailed, and that from now on we’ll only be getting the usual Bethesda garbage. If someone wants to play a real Fallout game, they should just stick with 1,2 and NV. That’s my take on it at least.
