    it has better gameplay and more rpg mechanics than skyrim. if you dont get hung up on comparing it to previous fallout games its not that bad. I actually enjoyed it a lot more than skyrim but hope they never do voiced protag again

      This, had they had stuck with fallout 3’s dialog system the game would’ve been received a lot better

      Todd's admitted that it was an experiment that didn't pan out and the protag isn't voiced in Starfield so I'm pretty sure they've learned their lesson. Also got rid of the four dialogue options only system as well thank God

          This and Will Shen's interviews have also given me a lot of hope that the game's RPG mechanics won't be half bad

        wild how little credit people give BGS for being open about feedback and fixing mistakes. the breakneck speed opening in FO4 is without a doubt a response to criticisms of FO3's taking too long. FO4 finally undid the recursive crafting as well.

      Fucking Alpha Protocol only gives you 4 ways to respond(including sarcastic) and it is praised as an RPG with many branches available. Fucking Witcher 1, Gothic, etc has a voiced protagonist with sometimes even more limited options and it is one of the most praised RPGs around.
      Fallout 4's biggest problem is that they didn't even write a fucking binary branch. Which is expected since the fuckers responsible for writing the script were also responsible for Skyrim where the branches were also as nonexistent. Often times they didn't even fucking write a response, just a "they did (not) like that" as if it is a fucking telltale game.
      Those problems have fucking nothing to do with a voiced protagonist, or even voice acting budget since they are one of the biggest fucking companies around, and because they actually did write and voice 4 different ways for NPCs to say "okay" to your "yes" in some dialogue options. The quest designer was that fucking lazy and incompetent and you people were fucking stupid enough to fall for the voiced protagonist being voiced.
      Even fucking modern Bioware, let alone a Chris ABalogna, could make a RPG with only 4~6 options available to the player, not anybody behind the wheel in Bethesda.
      Starfield is just going to give you spam you with 11 different ways to say "yes" with actual choices being nonexistent. Especially since the same retards behind Fallout 4 are behind the wheel.

      TL;DR
      You are a fucking moron if you bring up the voiced protagonist in Fallout 4.

          Because Emil and the other dipshits in Bethesda can't even write a binary outcome let alone a quadrary one.

          What you said is true but there's no denying that voiced protagonists will always limit the writer regardless of competent he was.

          >will always limit the writer
          Only real example of the voiced protagonist even being a problem is Dragon Age where they only wrote the character as a human in mind in 2, and didn't even bother to rectify in Inquisition so you can play as the most br'ish sounding dwarf or whatever.
          When the developer is something of AAA scale as Bethesda which is owned by fucking Microsoft, and disc size+compression is a problem modern game developers don't even give a fuck about, only limit there is is the writer's competency and Bethesda writers are worse than the mentally ill dipshits at Bioware by the virtue of not even writing.
          Even crying about limits is fucking stupid to begin with. Give a man no limitations and you get fucking Chris Avellone who repeatedly writes too fucking much to fit in a game.

    It’s a loot shooter with good exploration & building mechanics.
    By itself, it’s a pretty simple and fun game.

    The world is a blank slate so you can impose your own creative vision on it via mods, giving it a Minecraft-like appeal

    NV has stronger worldbuilding so it leans more into the category of the Witcher or Mass Effect or insert CRPG here, which is always more niche than the former

      Fnv is nowhere close to crpg, you are delusional. Only because it's a step above f3 in terms of Factions and quests doesn't mean shit. If anything it's ten steps behind in world design.

            I beat it the week it came out and never touched it again.

            Tim Cain made Fallout. Perhaps you've heard of it. I don't have any faith in those interplay/black isle/troika guys anymore. They're all washed up.

    I beat FO4 once when it came out. I just boot up new Vegas if I want a soulful rpg experience. It is timeless but I wish we had new story with similar feel and freedom. Sometimes I get depressed thinking I won't experience the same fun times and happiness I used to playing new vegas the first 5 times. One day. I wish I could make these worlds real, even if something good is made I don't want to forget the Mojave.

    All Bethesda games are still good Open World games even if they have shit RPG mechanics compared to the older games. There aren't any other Open World games like them.

    Its looked like boring repetitive shit from the first trailer and earliest gameplay footage, so I didn't buy it or play it. My instincts were correct yet again.

    They gutted stat checks, but the actual character build portion is unchanged beyond how it's visually presented. Stats were removed, and perks, which were often what pushed you into specific builds anyway, are more powerful to compensate.

    >"duurr there are no builds because you can level indefinitely"
    We gonna argue you had a build going past 15+ perks in New Vegas? At that point you're just generically strong. Especially if you took Shotgun Surgeon along with And Stay Back. Two weapon perks that make every shotgun absurdly overpowered, and you now have free reign to take every health and niche buff perk without gimping yourself.
