When I played Fallout 3, I wondered why there wasn’t a massive multiplayer world like World of Warcraft that was set in a post-apocalyptic world similar to that of Fallout.
When Fallout 76 was announced, I felt like a dream came true. But the dream became a nightmare.
The disappointment was immediate., however, I forced myself to play because I hoped that the disillusionment was just a matter of me not being accustomed to the changes.
The social aspect was retarded. When I encountered the first actual person, he communicated with the equivalent of an emo-gee. By the way, anyone who uses an emo-gee when writing to me is immediately dismissed as a simpleton. Adults use words.
I was a fool for expecting the social experience of World of Warcraft. I don’t expect games that are played on consoles to bear the same text-chat of the Blizzard game, but the emo-gee limitation was almost enough for me to take the disc out and sell it.
I had imagined bands of people grouping together to become raiders, protectors, and other options. There was not even a hint of this. In the time that I have been playing, the only interactions have been the handful of retarded emo-gee communication, and the three times that I was attacked, which seemed more like player boredom than malice.
The social aspect was non-existent.
The worst part of the game is a nag to eat and drink. I don’t know why the game forces a player to do this. When Grand Theft Auto introduced that, it made me hate the game. But it is far worse in Fallout 76. You get nagged EVERY 10 MINUTES !!! You even get nagged when you are in combat!!! This is not an exaggeration.
Yes, I would have complained if I had to eat and drink even if it was a nag once a week. Why not have a nag to defecate and urinate? The game is not realistic. I fall five stories without a scratch in some areas, and in other areas I fall ten feet and die. My character can hop up five feet, but cannot walk over a small branch (I have to jump over that tiny obstacle).
I tried to love the game despite the frustration and disappointment. There were a couple of hours when I pretended that I know nothing about Fallout games and that I was in a Walking Dead episode, but the nag for eating and drinking kept taking me out of the pretend -reminding me that the game isn’t anything like I thought it would be, and even there were no predecessors, this game is just a time sink.
I stopped playing because I realized that it’s not going to get better unless there is a new game and I get a refund for what I have suffered.
