    I'm surprised by how many articles I see with so many positives about this game. I'm not usually overly harsh on my critique of games but this game looks awful. So much so that it should be a major blow to Bethesda's reputation.



    Watching or looking at videos is one thing, actually playing it is another.

    The game is fun as hell. It is the fallout that we love tacked on with multiplayer and a much larger world. If you liked the previous Fallout titles, you will like this as well. It's a shame none of my friends tried it this weekend when I gave them free keys. They would have enjoyed it.

    Sandbox MMO?



    Lol no.



    It's a Fallout 4 multiplayer mod with a new larger map and some new world bosses. Sure it can be fun, but a sanbox MMO, for me - not even close.




    Propably the first time i can fully agree ;)

    If somebody makes a Ferrari and tries to sell it as an airplane, it isn't "hating" to point out that it's a car, not a plane.

    Carry on.

    You see I take the toaster analogy to the next level. Full optimization would be like sliding a piece of bread cleanly into the toaster. The level of optimization this game has is like trying to shove a whole loaf pumpernickel bread into one.
    I don’t know why but that made me laugh, thanks for that!

    What in the fuck. Why are you calling this an MMO when the developers themselves don't?

    So tell me this... what multiplayer game ISN'T an MMO? Huh Bill? Which games aren't? If a 24 player game is now Massively-Multiplayer, then what ISN'T?!

    I'm a great Fallout fan, but I'll give this one a miss, lol

    Hopefully, there'll be a Fallout 5 that sticks to the "old" single-player formula...

    If not, then I guess it's time to say: "So long, and thanks for all the fish !" :wink:

    1.) My title probably made you all miss the point of the actual article - try this game if and when a trial comes. If you get a free BETA key, at least try it. 

    2.) I wish I did get paid for articles like this by the devs. I do get paid by Ben and Craig, but at part time wages. So yeah?

    1) Preordered but won't play the beta. Probably would skip the first couple of weeks. I know I'm gonna have a decent amount of fun.

    2) Ben and Craig are part of the illuminati, aren't they? Should ask for a raise mate, they own all the banks.

    Oh btw, this game is VERY client side reliant. So hackers are going to have a field day

    I have been playing the BETA on PC since day one. I have to say that the game plays almost exactly like Fallout 4. Is that a bad thing? NO. Yes, there are some changes to make it more user friendly to a multiplayer game such as the VATS changes and the RNG cards for perks. But even with those changes, the game is fun and works just as well as Fallout 4. I will also say this, West Virginia as the wasteland looks amazing.

    It looks pretty fun, I may pick it up. Haven't played any of the other fallout games despite having New Vegas in my Steam library.

    People sure are angry over semantics. 

    Fallout 76 is really fun. I'm having a great time exploring the wasteland with friends, and while it has a lot of similarities to Fallout 4, there are some key differences that really change a lot of the fundamental ways I would play Fallout 4.  The group events are a lot of fun, the enemies are a lot tougher, and there are areas where you really should have more than 1 person with you.

    It's the perfect game to play with friends. One thing I really like that people seem to miss is how so many online games and MMOs level scale, but that isn't the case here, which makes your power growth really apparent, but it also doesn't mean you can just shrug off lower level enemies either. 

    Can't wait for release. I'm super excited about it.

    Again, not a MMO. It does not take away the fun to be had with other players.

    I purchased it and played the B.E.T.A. Won't suggar coat it and have nothing new to add: It is one of the most fun and exciting experiences... when it works.

    Nobody shot nor exploited me or the quests I was doing - the other way around actually, people helped me and followed their own path.

    But, no. Not a MMO.

    One thing I learned loooong ago is if you want to read posts of people that claim to like games but actually hate just about every freaking game that comes out... well go anywhere on the internet, but especially around here.

    "Survival", "Sandbox", "MMO", "blah-ditty-blahblah"... I don't care about any of those words. What I care about is if I play a game, no matter how it's marketed, did I have fun? Well my wife and I had a great time playing Fallout 76 this weekend. We had fun exploring a great world, finding all sorts of loot, reading a ton of cool lore hidden all over the place, getting freaked out slowly going through dark passageways with things jumping out at us to kill us, following some more guided content from quests, joining other people to try and take out various challenges, building ourselves a cool little house, and crafting up some cool armor and weapons.

    There was so much to do and we can't wait to play some more. So if you're not a jaded gamer who hates all games if somebody gives it a label you don't agree with, you might just have some fun giving it a shot too!
