    One of few games I consider worth the money

    I've tried fallout 3 before and it just didn't hook me up. I gave up on it in an hour or so. Fallout 4 leaps and bounds ahead of 3.I'm not a big fan of shooter games because there's usually virtually no progression and t... Read Full Review

    Fallout Fell Flat

    Alright. To be on the fair side of things, let's start with the plus side of Fallout! The combat! Oh, goodness, that combat system! The first time I squared off with fiends actually using tactics was awe-inducing. That ... Read Full Review

    Loved the building aspect

    Fallout 4 switched things up a lot. They added settlements. And the ability to build your own settlements. Which I saw a lot of people disliked, oddly. I found it the best addition to the game they could have done! I sp... Read Full Review

    Boring, Bugging, and complete Bullshit

    This is by far one of the worst games I've played in quite some time in every imaginable way. The graphics are horrible and bland. The map is huge but with nothing exciting to see or do. The quests are repetitive to say ... Read Full Review

    This Game Started the Drop in RPG Quality (Fallout 76 & Andromeda after this)
