    There are players who dislike branching paths - people who complain that they can only play the game once because reasons, and they want to see all the content, and the very thought of missing out makes them break out with brain measles. It is a retarded idea, and who knows whether this is 0.1% or 10% of the market, but it's out there.

    I remember a lot about that period, especially the talk that "Fallout needed to change because it was too old fashioned", "Fallout is finally good thanks to Bethesda" and of course the insults that original Fallout fans lived in the past.

    Of course I brought some of that up again when Fallout 76 was announced and the Fallout 3 and 4 fans were less than pleased.

    Ah,to be honest here it did boost the viability of the old ones. Some people bought them and a few of them even like them .

    Laney's still seething over Boyarsky with her private account. A reply to her from a comrade:

    "Ree, you should be lecturing the player instead of encouraging them to have goofy, apolitical fun. :argh:"

    What? The SJWs are now jumping on this title now that it is getting public attention?
    Actually missed out om that one until now but it is not surprising seeing as they also went for Cyberpunk 2077.

    I can't wait until this trend finally dies down.

    Yes, thank you New Vegas for inventing low-INT dialogue. For fuck's sake, you can't trust any of these people to have played the first two Fallouts, can you?

    They should have made that "need to eat/drink/sleep/perma-cNPC-death" into a separate "hardcore mode" instead of the hardest difficulty level :/

    I don't wanna deal with having to eat-drink etc. which I didn't find fun in NV if I decide to experience the hardest combat.

    Who the fuck is Laney? It’s so tiresome having to keep track of these freaks.

    Someone who got so high in the corporate ladder most likely doesn't love anything other than money. Even if we were lucky and there were some exceptions in Miscrosoft, shareholders would make sure that their decisions would be overruled.

    Did she quit to fight the white man on Twitter full time or was she fired for being too degenerate even for the Commiefornians of Obsidian?

    Ahhh it is not much of a prof,or for fallout 3 to be honest but still:

    This games do have an effect on older ones. There is always somebody that decides to try out the ones before it. If they wanted to fuck the older games they could have just released it as fallout and not fallout 3.

    So will this have attributes or will the low-INT dialogue just be from a "dumb" trait/perk? Can I make a really high CHA character and hire every NPC to play all the combat sections for me?
