I've spent an ungodly amount of hours in 76 and I only keep loving it more and more. This is the Stalker/fallout 4 mashup i've been waiting for. I couldn't be happier with it.

There's a ton of good game here that's getting overlooked by those that either haven't touched it or had no intention of touching it and their pseudo reasoning is getting fueled by the gaming press playing em for clicks.

I personally think the game is fantastic. I've been obsessed with it since my first full day in the beta and my interest hasn't waned in the slightest. Literally every single other person I've come across in the game is also having a blast.

Yall keep bitchin and whinin on the forums tho. I'll be up in that West Virginia having a party :P

It's cool. I like things that are bad too sometimes. The Room is one of my favorite movies. It's a masterpiece of shit cinema.

It doesn't just end with gaming for me. I LOVE Transformers 2 as well *swoon*

Game ain't bad by the way lol. It's got some technical hiccups sure, but anecdotally, EVERYONE I know personally and met in-game are having a blast. In my many many years o gamin, I ain't never see that with an objectively bad game. Go into it understanding that it's Fallout 4 fused with Stalker with a dash of multiplayer sprinkled on top and have a party!

LOL comparing fallout to STALKER.

this game basically killed entire fallout series my friend. the huge AAA game getting 4/10 and negative reviews means it can be even worse than it scored.

What is this ignorant spam that replied to me?

The only thing I'd like changed is an increase to the camp weight limit. In the context of the in game economy, it keeps you cycling through materials to keep powering yourself up at a pretty brisk pace so I can appreciate that. I'd like the option to hoard a couple of heavy weapons that I may not be the right level for yet to plan for future builds but thats kinda hard to do when each heavy weapon weighs around 20 lbs. That's literally the only change I'd like. I'm still peeling open the games systems though so I may find more later. As it stands, I adore everything about this game.

Even with having to scrap weapons that aren't your level though, you get upgrades for the weapons that stay for when you CAN use them (from scrapping them) it's not a bad thing altogether. Still tho, there's a plasma minigun that I gave away earlier that I'm kinda curious about now :(

*edit*

Also, since theres no RDR2 on pc for me to play, this is my GOTY for sure.

@zombieproof: Sadly there aren't very many post apocalyptic RPGs. Wasteland and Elex are about the only ones I can think of and Wasteland 3 might not even see the light of day now that Microsoft has gobbled up Inxile.

There's a bunch out there.

UnderRail, After Reset (work in progress), and Atom RPG are a few that jump immediately to mind. There are a few who's names I can't remember at the moment but yeah, they're out there.

Answers is a big ol booming YES

*copied from another thread*

I played every single second of the beta and I'm dying for more.

I've put in over a thousand hours of Fallout 4 Survival mode alone because under the hood, it feels like the Stalker sequel I've always wanted. Can't tell you how long I've been waiting for a post apocalyptic survival shooter sprinkled with rpg elements whos focus is on sating my wanderlust to come along.

After my fourth survival playthough I began modding Fallout 4 to feel even more like stalker. Among the 28 currently installed, I use:

1. "True Storms" for less pastels and a bit more of the mood.

2. "5X player damage XP" - to make every shot count from both me and the enemies. What I like about this mod is that much like survival mode itself, it opens up all of the available nuance in the guns so that even pipe weapons open up as viable options if crafted properly.

3. "Immersive Fallout" - A fantastic mod that adds weight to movement (both player and npc's) and bullet drop.

4. "The Deadly Commonwealth Expansion" - Which gears up every enemy faction from jump with high level, bad ass gear (including legendaries).

5. "War of the Commonwealth" - Which ups the enemy spawn rate significantly which means the block is ALWAYS hot.

I also rarely use VATS Unless I'm bopping about with a high luck/Deliverer build.

It's almost as if the Fallout 76 devs read my mind with how they put together 76. It feels like the natural evolution of what I've been playing/going for with Fallout 4. I spent every hour of every beta day(save the first cuz o technical reasons) and I've only begun digging under 76's hood. I like every bit that I've discovered though. It's a pretty great game.

In terms of the "empty world" critique people are throwing around, I love it. Again, it makes 76 feel even closer to the Stalker game I've been looking for. As for the whole hubbub about '76's holotapes and robots being the only thing's that give you missions and interactions, they aren't any better or worse than Stalkers "npc's" in terms of their level of nuance hahaha.

I love 76. I can see myself spending tons of time with it.

*edit*

To all the fans sad about fallouts more action oriented evolution, I get it. Luckily there are tons of games like Wasteland 2, Tyranny, Pillars of Eternity, etc that are happy to provide what you're looking for. I'm fine with fallout evolving into it's own thing as long as the glut of old school fallout-like options continue to flood the market.

*edit again*

I realize I didn't wax poetic about the multiplayer and that's because it's there but it isn't intrusive. To be honest, I was focused on peeling open as many layers as I could in 76 before the beta timers ran out. The few times I crewed up with folks were a blast and I never touched pvp because at this point I'm just not interested.

Right now, post Beta I'd give '76 a solid 9

I spent as much time in the '76 pc beta as possible and I'm obsessed. I'm now watching as much of Oxhorn and Many a True Nerd's '76 beta vids as possible. It's a fantastic game.

I actually started scanning the net for news of more possible beta days. That's how bad I want more time in West Virginia. The 14th can't come soon enough.

Also, being a huge fan of Stalker, I welcome the lack of NPC's and the isolated approach to the post apocalypse (them stalker npc's and fallout protectrons are totally interchangeable lol). Considering how Exodus is looking, 76 is more stalker than stalker and I couldn't be more pleased.

...PLUS THE CO OP? Bethesda struck gold with this. I have nothing but pity for all the haters out there.
