    There are plenty of people who did play it and rate it poorly.
    As for me, after my disappointment with Fallout 4, no way I'm giving my money to Beth for this abomination...

    I loved Fallout 4 and was hoping for a Fallout 5, moving the story on in some years and in another new location so there would be a ton of stuff to explore with a whole new load of quests and then expansions/DLC's to continue the story on.

    Ok I grant you that FO4 had many flaws, and you had to follow certain frustrating storylines (like not being able to wipe out those damn Minutemen for example), not to mention that tedious DIMA's Memory Puzzle nonsense - but there were a lot of good parts in the game as well. I spent hundreds of hours playing it, making settlements and exploring the many bunkers and then purchasing the expansion packs, following the stories through to their end and getting companions to trust me - although they often kept getting stuck in places and getting me into fights I could have easily avoided solo!

    Coming from playing Fallout New Vegas (which I didn't enjoy anyway as near as much), FO4 was like opening up a whole new world to me, and I even upgraded my gaming pc to play it :D

    Having to wait all this time for the next installment of the Fallout series, then hearing the news that it was going to be online only, (but you could play it solo, really - why do you have to be online then?), and had PvP and no NPC's and went back in time (WTF?) was really disappointing to hear.

    TBH I haven't played it myself, I actually cancelled my pre-order but I do have friends who have (and many of them have asked for a refund) and I've watched many reviews about it and seen a lot of the gameplay and sadly its not for me. Bethesda messed this one up - but if they did change tack and bring out a FO5 I would probably buy it!

    So to console myself I'm off to kick my cat (gently) and I'll quote the old saying

    "If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck". :p

    In my case, my Fallout 4 experience was quite the opposite - boring story, butchered dialogue system and RPG elements, quests even worse than in Ubisoft games... And worst of them all - knowing Obsidian will never work on FO sequel again...
    But that's okay, Bethesda will shove "war never changes" quotes and Pip/Vault/Fallout (whichever name it is) boy into player throats without realizing what Fallout really is about...

    Now if you will excuse me, I need to calm myself down with some music...

    I'm hoping for Fallout 5 too.

    RE: Fallout 76 - As soon as they said no NPC's and Open World with no stories - you make your own - I thought it was going to be a "lame" duck, which is certainly how it's turned out - along with the usual Bethesda screw-up's.

    It won't even be a good candidate for purchase when the price drops after it's old, as without the servers it's useless. No long term prospects for sales, another genius idea. :)

    Nice songs indeed.

    But Fallout 1/2 soundtrack...
    I love traveling through the wasteland, filled with destruction and sadness, seeing what used to be a great civilization, now turned to dust. And although many try to rebuild, and there seems to be hope that one day we might forget the tragedy of the past, and start living and breathing freely again, yet even in these hard times people still try to kill one another... War... War never changes...
    And all this to the eerie music of FO1/2...
    Holly hell, the game atmosphere just went over 9000!

    Yeah, I saw the complaints, and I was disappointed as I was looking forward to JC4. Too disappointed to even post anything about it yet... sigh. Thanks for getting the ball rolling... :)
