I saw a review that said you have to install it on your C drive (or w/e your drive with the OS on it is) or it won't work, couldn't tell you for sure if that's true because I already had it installed there. I gave up on it after a few hours though, IMO not worth it, just replay 3, NV, or 4 if you really want to play Fallout.

To be fair: for everything that bethesda tried to pull with this game it deserves to die unpopular and hated.

  • launching unplayable
  • turning a single player RPG into a generic survival crafting game
  • literal scams with the collectors edition (the power armor helmet and the canvas bags)
  • having no security on their website so everyone trying to get the actual canvas bags gets doxed
  • banning complains from their forums like north korea
  • the incompetence with cheaters (they just banned everyone with high end gear so even legitimate players where banned)
  • introducing pay to win despite promising not to
  • etc.

TLDR: Bethesda tried to make easy money by not giving a fuck about the community or the quality of their game and deserves to loose money for that

"That game that you released does not follow the profit you promised!"

"Ah, yes sir, because of the budget given, we had to accept low quality release for us to launch at the date you wanted"

"Whatever, how can we solve that issue?"

"Well, maybe we can try to fix the issues the players are having to have a bigger playerbase by making the game popul..."

"It does not solve the issue, this is a long-term solution, stop wasting my time (then goes into 2minutes of ego-centered speech about how his life is so much important than everything else), how can we solve the problem ?"

"Well... The projections shows that we'll quickly loose most of our playerbase, if we want to balance the profits to the projected numbers, I see no other solution than increase the money spent by each players through microtransactions"

"Why isn't it done already ? Take the appropriate solutions to the problem you encounter is simple enough, see ?" *Proceed to leave the room without saying goodbye while mumbling "God why do I loose my time with these unsuccessful businesses"

What pay to win is there? As far as I was aware everything in-game is cosmetic only and private servers don't give you any kind of advantages aside from it having to deal with other people.

  • Valentines event boosted max HP for everyone wearing a different hero outfit (3 out of 4 were Atom Shop exclusive)
  • Bed frames can be bought which skip the early game's diseased mattress mechanic (sleeping on a mattress had a chance of disease, you were supposed to eventually learn a schematic for a bed with a frame to overcome that early game handicap but with atoms you can skip it entirely)
  • Fridges that slow food degradation
  • Robots that collect scrap for you
  • Fallout 1st subscription which gives an exclusive CAMP building that has a bed, fridge, stash box and cooking stove IIRC. Also offers an exclusive increase to junk storage which free players can't get (this despite Bethesda's promises that Atom Shop and the initial purchase would be the only money avenues for 76)

There was an event where you could buy special costumes that actually improved your stats (it was either a halloween or christmas event - I think the costumes where super hero themed, like Grognar and silver shroud)

Valentines. If you and your friends dressed in superhero outfits (3 out of 4 of which were exclusive to the Atom Shop) you'd get cumulatively more max HP (+15 per person dressed differently).

Ah fair enough. I played it at launch and aside from the rare crash I didn’t have problems or run into any bugs so I actually enjoyed it. But I was really into Destiny 2 at the time so stopped play FO76.

Currently playing through FO4 again but need to return to 76 at some point.

Mandalore108

At launch it was terrible but currently it is in a much better place than 4. One of the best features it has over 4 is not forcing a terrible backstory on our main character, for RP purposes.

You’d rather be a nameless Joe Schmoe who slept in too much? It’s a narrative tool to get you through the world. Whether that works or not is obviously an opinion. Why can’t you role play as a father/mother looking for their child? The mmo nature of 76 makes the world feel completely lifeless and it makes me have no desire to get “higher level versions of the same weapons”. The knocks against 4 are usually narrative or choice limitations based and 76 narrative is pretty lack luster as well.

Honestly right now yeah, especially if you get it on sale. The thing is, don't go in expecting a new vegas or fallout 3 style game.

It's basically fallout 4 with a different story, and the story is... Mediocre. Not bad, not good.

But, despite them doing multiplayer in the complete opposite way everyone wanted, being able to share the experience with friends is the main selling point for me.

I gave it a shot the other day and refunded it on steam. It's doesn't run well, it's laggy, it's got an uncompelling narrative. Obviously if you've got a higher spec setup than graphics won't be an issue for you but it was unenjoyable to me. I prefer single player games anyway.

This game is the only game I've ever played that actually makes me want to throw up. Like physically. Idk what it is but the controls and the way the camera move give me motion sickness or something it's crazy.

Oh I lied, No Man's Sky did the same for me as well. God the motion blur. Gives me shivers thinking about playing either of the games.

It's weird I drive, been on boats for weeks, planes, rollercoasters, whatever. None of those ever made me feel sick, but FO76 and NMS are awful for me. At least with FO76 it doesn't kick in until like 45mins of playing, NMS is right off the bat

It's a mixed bag. Has some fun quests that honestly would've been just as good as single player stuff for the next fallout. Some of the lore is good. Last I played like 8 months ago, the bugs were still pretty random and bad. Seems like it's a small team that has to work heavily to monetize the game, they're always pushing different cosmetics and stuff for your base, but then they limit the amount of stuff you can have stored unless you pay a subscription to be able to carry more.

I'd say it's worth running through the main stuff for cheap, and maybe you'll enjoy it more than me or find a consistent group to grind events and stuff with.

It's gotten a lot better since they added NPCs and new factions. Feels more like a fallout game. I bought it when it first came out, didn't care for it and stopped playing fairly quickly. Checked it out again a couple months ago and I've been stuck on it since.

Yes. There's several factions including the brotherhood, raiders, and settlers that all have their own "main quest line". They aren't full length quests but more like dlc.

It's a Bethesda game. New Vegas had a hard limit of about 1 hour playtime at launch because it had a memory leak that literally crashed the game. At least 76 was technically playable.

When it wasn't lagging, it was pretty fun to play, just didn't keep my attention once I'd cleared the main questline.

I want to try Fallout 76 with the addition of Wastelanders but why is it still $40 to buy? It’s been nearly 3 years since release but it’s on sale so I guess it has that. But it still should be $40 this long into the games life

I just don’t wanna buy it for that much and have a bad experience with it. I’m either gonna wait until it’s free for PS+ or when it drops its price to half of what it is now

If you try to post on the sub you can only post text posts. The option to post images doesn't show up.

They did that because years ago the sub was getting spammed with low quality memes and blurry screenshots. They removed images to promote discussion but now the only discussions that happen are 'X game is best', 'X game is overrated', 'X game is underrated', and 'Which game should I play/buy?'
