I remember playing this game back in 2019, saying
"I can't believe this came out a week after Disco Elysium.
This shit has no chance, how long have I been playing this? Three hours? This shit will not get better."

its okay but hope the sequel is good. it has potential.

A much worse fallout game with segmented worlds placed in a mostly linear structure. Not worth playing unless you’re a big fan of obsidian writing which is the best part of this game.

Interesting game, looking forward to see what obsidian brings us in next years.

Compelling. Speech / Charisma is OP, but makes for interesting situations that you can talk yourself out of.

I'm not a big Fallout fan, so maybe that is why I enjoy the game more than most but I had such a good time with it. I loved the writing, I loved the companions, and if anything it feels more like a Bioware/Mass Effect style RPG. I think the gunplay was really good, the worlds were fun to explore, and while some stuff felt awkward and it felt like a much smaller game than I expected, this world was really good. I feel like people expected this to be Fallout: New Vegas 2 and were upset it didn't meet those expectations.
