Three years ago, Bethesda Game Studios released Fallout 4, the next in its series of post-apocalyptic sandboxes. Despite being a self-described Fallout fanatic, Mike Mahardy only sank 20 hours into the game before moving on. So, with the recent reveal of Fallout 76, he vowed to give Fallout 4 a second chance.
In the video above, Mike explores the various ways Fallout 4 originally pushed him away, and the various things he has grown to love about it. He also examines how Fallout 4 serves as a link in the series' evolution, and the role it plays in Bethesda's future.
