Is Fallout 76 any good now?

Is Fallout 76 any good now? I'm a massive fallout fan, but with the backlash and blatant cash grab p2w game that 76 launched as I never touched it. Has it changed, or is it still garbage?

      VATS is Aimbot in this game rather than actually stopping time and showing a cinematic of you killing the enemy. Here you just click Vats and AIMBOT is enabled for a few seconds.

      You can also guarantee crits.

        Manual crits were in Fallout 4, too

    No. It still isn't. In fact i'd say it's even worse. Adding NPCs to the game was garbage, now literally the very first npc you meet in the game as soon as you leave the vault is an interracial dyke couple.

    The game had fun explortion before but due to always being online the lag was unbearable and the grinding was terrible, nothing regarding that changed. All they did was add NPC stories which are not really good or interesting, it's just more content for the people that already played it 24/7.

    Also it's full of hackers that can instakill you if you try to engage in PVP, and cowards who actually do engage in pvp without hacks only to alt + f4 when they are about to be killed.

    I liked seeing people's bases though, lots of people have pretty houses! Found a dude one with a trailer park that had a live love laugh sIGN on the front.

    I haven't played it in over a year now but I have put 500 hours into it and it's really fun if you're into building, and the map is probably the best 3D fallout map yet. Everything else is your typical boring bugged fallout.

    no
    its kind of like ESO where it might be an okay time waster if you genuinely have extremely low standards for video games and you're okay with being treated like a second class citizen when you arent subbed to the monthly service and are nickel and dimed for every cosmetic and you're playing the most soulless fanfiction version of the much better IP that the game is based upon
    there is still extreme desync/latency issues, the game runs like shit, is still buggy, is like a bad mmo in all but name, and is "fallout" at its worst, like todd basically said fuck it and started letting anybody who played a fallout game for 5 minutes write the lore
    best case scenario, fallout 76 gets handwaved away and quietly made non-canon unlike the ESO fags that abuse all the DRAGON BREAK UNRELIABLE NARRATOR tools that TES has to desperately pretend their shit is meaningful

      Can you play it casually as a solo experience? Is there any story or is it just an online rooty tooty shooty game?

        You can definitely play casually. I mean there's a meta where you join a public group and then just do whatever you were going to do by yourself. That way you'll get group xp but not have to interact at all. But it isn't necessary. Most people are just doing solo shit

        Casual and solo is ideal for 76 imo. There is story, but it isnt all that important or interesting (the vanilla story anyway). I honestly had fun with the game even back at release when it was super fucky and constantly breaking. The map is huge and there is a ton to explore and salvage. Placing your own camp nearly anywhere was a fun dynamic even if a bit unimportant. Most of the (vanilla, pre-updates) story is lowkey terminal reading and soundtapes rather than the usual npc's and quests like normal bethesda games. The updates brought in the npc/questing more, but the main game is mostly exploring and finding out what happened to the region which I found intriguing enough to keep playing. Coop play is not really worth it outside of the bonus from being in a group. Actually adventuring together in the open world is rather shit. There are a few more challenging group content but those are few and far between.

        If you know you already like the bethesda fallout games and are OK with not having any major mods for them, 76 is a fine enough experience if you can pick it up cheap. If you get your thrills from sex mods and OP modded gear, then stay away.

          My favorite part of fallout 4 was the way they implemented power armor. Love that it's like an exo suit that takes cores to power and you need to invest heavily to use it properly. Is it like that in 76?

            Yeah, to an arguably bullshit degree. There's a ton of rng when it comes to finding parts you want.

                Anonymous

                There's so many different modifiers that are randomly assigned to loot that a bunch of the stuff you find won't match the build you're going for. So not only are you fighting rng for the modifiers you want, on the parts you want, you're also sifting through regular non-power armor that you want none of

    fo76 is a time, base building, and inventory management simulator. The combat is not difficult, however, completing all the tasks you need to complete in a timely manner is potentially difficult.
    It is much more interesting than most games out there. and it is continuously being updated.
    basically, you will get to a point where it will be a bit frustrating and you will want to buy fo1st to make the game more convenient. You can play without it, though. just gotta play smart and not pick up everything.

    I found it really enjoyable, and I'm a fan of the whole series since 1. If you liked vanilla Fallout 4, than you'll probably enjoy 76. The map is big and fun to explore, with lots of verticality, and the enemy variety is definitely a step-up. Basebuilding is condensed but overall much better than 4.

    Obviously it sucks that it's always online, since you have to deal with the regular gamebryo jankiness you would expect, on top of shit netcode. Companions aren't really a thing, and I think that was the only thing 4 really had going for it.

    I put 500 hours into it. Towards the end of that I definitely felt burnt out, and was just logging in to do daily chore shit. Stay out of that loop and you'll get your money's worth.

      stop shielding the game from OP with euphemisms. the more accurate way to say that is that they're adding an ammo box with unlimited ammo storage for $10/month; acknowledging the problem with their storage systems but still locking the solution behind a monthly fee.

        fo1st keeps the game going. im rich i don't really care, obviously if you agonize over 99/year then don't get it.
        Every year they have a free trial of fo1st, so if you are smart and have friends,you can pack your scrap box with huge amounts of scrap.

          there's your answer from the horse's mouth, OP. pay $100 a year for a worse version of fallout 4 or you're just a poor person that should be happy to wait a literal year for a free membership event to use your storage. this is a milking machine for the dumbest variety of cows.

            I'm not defending the sub in any way shape or form, but you implying it is necessary at all is extremely disingenuous. I got by just fine at release when the storage size was like 4x smaller than it is now and there was no option for increasing it. You DO NOT need to spend extra money on the subscription to play the game. You also don't need to grind the extra currency shit, you can just do the quests and be done with the story/game. Only the turbo autists grinding away at the mmo tier shit would care about the subscription. Just to experience the game for the first time and explore the world? Just ignore the sub, it is 100% not needed and only exists to milk the autists. The gameplay is barebones enough that once you experience it, you can just stop. Don't keep going, don't spend extra money, don't grind pointlessly.

      it's not because of base building. that requires some amount of artistic skill to do well. it's much less repetitive than, say, battlefield games. You can pretty much do anything. you can also talk to anyone you come across over your mic if you want to.

        FO76 builds ontop of FO4 and adds a few more QoL changes that makes the game the typical beth game: explore, loot, and get lost while you're in the middle of a quest. Quests are better than FO4, lighting is nice - although the wet material textures are something questionable. Story isn't too bad, although a lot of the initial events that happened to the responders is ruined as a result of them shoving npcs everywhere. that said, quests do bring back the old dialogue system which is nice, allowing you to use your perks to solve some issues at times. If you enjoy FO4 for exploring and shootan then this game is no different, except for the obxious UI/popups about either the cashshop or ingame events. never really cared about basebuilding tbh

    What do you think, but in all honesty its "better" now that some bugs have been fixed and they added more content
    If I had to be completely honest with you I advise you skip this game altogether and play the superior Elder Scrolls MMO, Fallout 76 isn't receiving much support or content, its like how GTAV is still receiving updates and expansions but RDR:2 gets nothing, in this analogy Fallout 76 is RDR2 while Elder Scrolls Online is GTAV, if you're going to give Bethesda money for an online experience then Elder Scrolls is "worth" it over Fallout 76
