I thought it was a good game, but they did need more variety in terms of combat. Even the ability to stealth instakill, plant landmines or throw grenades would have been a welcome addition.

Been REALLY enjoying this game so far. I have about 5-6 hours into it and just want to keep playing.
Sounds like my weekend. Started it on Saturday and maybe played a couple hours max. Initial thoughts were alright I guess. Sunday was another story. Think I put in 6-7 hours lol.

I bought the game on release and even bought a PS4 just to play the game, but I still haven't gotten around to playing it. It's been sitting there for a month. Guess I wasn't as interested as I thought I was. Go figure. I'll get around to it eventually...

I was surprised to hear as much negative feedback as I did. Some people enjoyed it, to be sure, but plenty seem kind of "meh" or disappointed with the experience. That surprised me, based on how well it reviewed.
It's fallout without the big open world with better quests.
At this moment, imo fallout 4 is a better game in every way except sidequests... and in the end, fallout 4 is my choice.
But, OW is shorter and much easier to digest (I played fallout 4 over one year, ow for one month), so if you dislike the idea of having a backlog I'd pick this.

Fallout 4 is hugely underrated imo and definitely contender of goty when released. Beats fallout new Vegas imo (I have f4 it tied with f3 for best fallout game).

I can't wait to get home today and put a couple more hours in. I just don't have enough free time to. I have probably spent over an hour just exploring and gandering at the environments. Great art work and the texture work is excellent. At the moment I am at the point in the main quest shutting down the airway relays from MSI and for the Iconolasts. I just finished the MSI portion last night and am going to finish the Iconolasts part tonight. I have done a lot more side quests and companion quests however. Like I said, I have been doing a lot of exploring...and man, those skyboxes!!! Love the one on Monarch especially.

Gameplay wise Fallout 4 is better than Fallout New Vegas, but New Vegas's dialogue choices make it a better game hands down. Fallout 4's dialogue "choices" completely ruined the game for me.

For me F4 > New Vegas. I finished both F3 and F4 putting in over 100 hours in each. I could never make it more than 10-20 hours on New Vegas.

If Fallout 76 ever becomes free to play or hit GamePass I’ll give it a shot.

Don't in its current stage. I got it for $8 on CDKeys and I put about 15 hours into it. You end up missing NPC's way more than you thought you would. Nothing seems like it has any purpose honestly.

Gonna give it another go if they ever release the big update including NPC's.

I thought they added NPCs recently?

Negatory. They said they were going to for the Fall update, but ended up pushing it back until Spring. Also, they released some "premium" version where you pay $12 bucks a month for something completely unnecessary to the game. Bethesda is very tone deaf when it comes to updates for the game, but I'd blame that on the publisher more so than the developers. $$$ over game play

Friend and I put around 100 hours and enjoyed it. Still have more to do in it but we take big chunks of games then take a break.
100 hrs? That's a long time. Did you play through it more than once?

I only played like the first hour of this game and then it sort of took the back seat to something else. I'll get back to it at some point, but...

Nope still on the same original character.

Edit: I'm talking about Fallout 76 btw

Currently at about 30 hours in Outer Worlds and doing the main mission on Monarch. No idea what all is left but up until now I've done just about every other quest I've been able to find.

I'm around 35 hours right now. Could see it taking like 50 or so for me, but I read ever terminal, book, etc that I can in these games and explore everywhere.
