Bethesda's Game Design is Insulting

    Bethesda understands what casual gamers want and gives it to them. That's it.
    Fallout received good scores because reviewers consider every viewpoint, not just yours. Hardcore gamers may have found it bland and shallow, but I suspect a casual gamer would really dig it. It's mindless, good-looking fun and for many/most people, that's all that matters.

    morrowind has the best story and quest layout, you have to figure it out yourself, also every1 treats you like shit until you make a name for yourself, skyrim is the opposite, you always have blips to guide you and when you start a new save, within 10mins every1 wants to blow you for being dragonborn

    I were so fucking happy when i took my rocket launcher and my combat armor (21? hours to get them) and shooted that bastard right in the face 3 times...
    When i played half an hour in my friends house and killed the deathclaw easly with a power armor and the machine gun was like: "oh, cool"

    Were all entitled too our own opinions. But Bethesda can't jerk off everyone's individual needs, people gas the fuck out of bethesda for stalling games, and they listen. They drop games too make people happy, and don't put as much effort as they used too. Its either, make the people screaming too release a game a month later, or take time on a game and risk constant hate. Unfortunately too stay on top you need persistent games, or you might just fall off the map.

    I have a friend who says that Fallout 4 is the best Fallout game. He only says that New Vegas is maybe better because I told him it was, I don't think that he's ever even played it. He truly thinks that Fallout 4 is a masterfully crafted game. Not surprisingly, he also likes Call of Duty.

    Unpopular view but new Vegas is THE WEAKEST fallout title, including all of them from 1 to 76, the story was hollow and sad... You know the WHOLE REASON for the existence of the game, was boring poorly written didn't fit into the existing lore at all (including lore from games prior to 3) beyond name dropping factions. The art style
    The courier DOES have a back story if you play the DLCs, and honestly it's pretty weakly written too. 1 you were a vault dweller on a rescue mission, 2 decendant of the original fault dweller on another rescue mission, tactics a wastelander who joined the BoS, 3 you were the son of a wasteland scientist pretending to be a vault dweller, new Vegas a courier who in some way shape or form MAYBE could have possibly destroyed the great divide, 4 a ex family man or woman fighting for their kid. I'm sorry but a vague backstory opting out of giving details is worse than having a poor one, because not only was it poorly written and made no sense it was intentionally left for confusing and show horns you to being a naive fool who delivered a bomb by mistake or a Savage monster who intentionally blew up the whole thing and also just HAPPENED to be the next courier on the list of couriers under a guy who survived the event and wants you dead, who is also a courier for the same company yet didn't know you were alive until he read that name on the list... The whole NV story line is shoe horned in bs.
    I do prefer silent protagonists though, and power armor is too easy to find on your first run (since it is an early game acquisition by the main quests) in 4

    • Lunartic
      Lunartic 6 days ago

      Maybe it's just your terrible opinion but New Vegas story is far from "hollow and sad" and I don't see how it's not fitting to lore or story of previous games. It's lore stays consistent with first two games (unlike Bethesda's games) and it explores same themes as first two games.
      You can't honestly think courier has a backstory because he/she may or may not have carried a package from Navarro that activated warheads in the divide. (This is all we know) You can still make your own backstory for the courier and hearing this from Ulysses wouldn't change it much except for the fact that you have been a courier maybe longer than you thought.

    The Fallout 4 player character "motivations" drove me crazy. I ended up believing that I was a synth implanted with a false pre-war memory based on actual pre-war Vault-Tec records. To nurture a free-will, but also remain under the influence of the Institute, they also contrived a familial connection with the faction leader, Father, by claiming he was my long lost son.

I still think it's beautiful.

    9:37 S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl came out over a year before Fallout 3 and had ADS gameplay mechanics, so there was no excuse for Fallout 3 not to (especially since S.T.A.L.K.E.R. had been in development longer). Sure, there's an iron sight mod, but standard stuff that shouldn't need to be fixed with mods. On the same token, the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. lets the player aim grenade launchers, while the other two S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games replace functional launcher sights (on certain launchers) with a cheap half-assed zoom.
    10:46 ShoC + Oblivion Lost mod (pretty much any version) is still the best dystopian wasteland "human WALL-E" experience out there. Btw, it's not "post-apocalyptic." Everyone misuses that word "apocalypse." It doesn't mean "cataclysm." It means "revelation." Same for the word "Armageddon." It has a specific meaning ("war of Megiddo").

    2 things.
    Play some survival mode to increase the difficulty and now you get a truly difficult experience.
    This is a Bethesda game. Playing it without mods is not an option.
    Also, the gunplay is severely improved in comparison to Fallout 3 and 4. attachments become more significant in survival aswell.

    • sushi amg
      sushi amg 8 days ago

      Yeah its not in the games defence rather its a sad fact. The true merit of bethesda games is giving modders a easily accesible platform to work with and improve so yeah. The games are shit, doesnt mean they cant get better through outside help.

    • Speedywaffles
      Speedywaffles 8 days ago

      “Playing it without mods is not an option.” That is a really weak argument. That’s basically saying that you can’t really enjoy Bethesda’s base game unless people who didn’t even work on it and weren’t paid to work on it improve the game for you.
      It’s not a modder’s job to fix a game that is already released. The game should already be polished and someone should be able to enjoy it without all the additions mods are able to put in so saying that it’s “not an option.” Is not a very good argument point.

    Back when this released, I probably would've been pretty stubborn... But now, after the announcement of a Battle Royale mode for Fallout 76, I'm beginning to lose faith in Bethesda. I would never have thought that Bethesda would sink so low, but yeah, I'm not even going to defend them anymore. I don't think I can defend them, and that's pretty sad if you ask me. I can't comment on the Elder Scrolls series, I've never gone near it. I haven't even played more than a few minutes of Fallout 3 and haven't gone near New Vegas, I don't have much money to spare on those games, but I did get into Fallout 4 and enjoyed 76 with a good friend of mine. I think it's gonna be while before I go near a Bethesda game, especially after E3 2019.

    "Most well known and powerful enemies in the entire fallout franchise"
    Suddenly, one crusty shrimpy boi appears! (Not even legendary approaches 300 DT!)
    Although I think going with the mantis shrimp was a mistake, should've been the pistol shrimp!
    Imagine a giant shrimp packing a melee range fat man! That blinds you! Absolute hell! Someone gotta mod that.
    I don't know how to make them immune to their own attacks or I'd give that a whirl myself. They kinda keep blowing themselves up if you just hop backwards slamming stimpacks.
    Actually if you really think about it Death claws were nerfed into the ground after the very first Fallout. The entire point of that one side plot in #2 is that there are various attempts around the wasteland to domesticate them like big scaly dogs. Either through reward conditioning or by increasing their intelligence.

    Finally! Somebody finally made a video about this. I was so confused because people actually seemed to like it, but the feeling of your intellect being taken absolutely for granted was SO present at all times during the game. Oufff... It had HUGE potential. Hopefully games like cyberpunk can pull the general direction towards better writing instead of cheap mildly satisfying action quests.

    7:18 You talked about how in new Vegas you could follow the story or go the other way and get killed by deathclaws. You can do that in fallout 4 as well. If you don’t know how let me enlighten you. Walk away from the main objectives. Be a raging psychopath like you said you wanted to. Murder everyone you come across. Also, you complained about the puzzles in Skyrim, which is understandable, but Skyrim is not a puzzle game. The game is what you make of it. Be a thief, be a sell-sword, be a murderer, be a soldier, be a trader, be a dragon slayer, be a daedra enthusiast. You can do anything you want and your complaining about the puzzles? I think you perspective is more insulting than the game design.

    I sometimes think like this too like damn games are gettin worse. But then i think theyre not getting worsr as much as theyre just hitting a plateau and you cant exactly blame the developers because honestly nearly everything has been done in games already and just that fact alone means majority of us have already been amazed like with earlier titles that were mind blowing and to most of the younger generations are thinking that the new games we think are boring are awesome. Simple fact of the matter is you do something enough you get desensitized to it and it takes more and more to amaze us. P.s im sure the next elder scrolls will be sick...hopefully

At least give us an option to turn the fucking training wheels off. It's such a waste of potential. I liked the other points though.

  • Luca Dario Bützberger

    Metacritics metacscore is bullshit. Every second game nowdays is rated 90+ anyways even when it is shit or has massive flaws.
    The only real correct score is the user score. Because this score is based of gamers experience and not based on the wallet size of critics. Fallout 4s userscore is 55 out of 100. I think this is still more than it deserves because 55 is not really that bad but I am ok with it.

    I think Bethesda latest games have some charm, for sure. I have at least 200+ hours in Skyrim alone. But overall? It's bleak, boring and forgettable. No interesting dialogues, world is huge, open and thus... empty, all the "dungeons" were boring, even if they threw in a quest or two to live it up. It feels very much like an MMORPG. I would trade all Bethesda games for a new RPG with Gothic 2 quality.

    As much as i detest 3,at the very least it allowed you to play the way you want without forcing you into an alignment(even if it did fuck that whole point over).

    For me, who play skyrim for pleasure and to enjoy the landscapes for hours, I'm somewhat content with those easy puzzles, the leveling system and simplicity of the quests. But I do want those daedric artifacts to be more powerful and have a much greater value to be more motivated to get them, at least to Oblivion level if not Morrowind. I'm old now and skyrim helps me to retreat in that fantasy world without too much stress, even though I play it on legendary difficulty.

    The game design is flashy colors, a big marking pitch, and Bethesda wins the game after you drop your 120 caps for the base game and multiple DLCs. The game is called, "Economics" and if you bought their products, you lost, Bethesda won ! $$$$$ :-) $$$$$

    The Good Part of Fallout 4: you can finally edit and build stuff in game - and not just junk - whole towers and buildings if you like, using mods and the PC. The environment is a good starting point, just delete towns and all of the base game and base factions, scrap everything, there - now you have empty maps you can build on. Fallout 4 was never meant to be minecraft, but building games are a lot more fun than running around the wasteland in pointless combat simulators.

    Also, the original fallout games had a very strong humor, jokes, and other funny content.
    Fallout 4 ? zero.
    Fallout 3 ? Some in Mothership Zeta
    Fallout New Vegas? Better. Big MT and one UFO scout ship...

    ESO Online: forget it. no humor at all.
    Fallout 76 Online: nothing.

    Without any humor or funny stories, it's just a grind, repetitive and boring. No one likes hours of grind.

    The creation club is even worse than you've described. They not only have the balls to charge that money for the weak in-game DLC items, but they didn't even create the items. They just give a fraction to the modders who made it for them and pocket the rest. Gamers make the mods and items, Bethesda sells their work and justifies it with some peanuts.

    When I finally convinced my Elder Scrolls-fan friend (who got me into Skyrim), he finally did
    ... with Fallout 4. And said he wouldn't be playing any of the older ones, when I asked.
    I tried.

    9:57 and then I notice Horse Power Armor being sold for $2.50 right as you explain how Bethesda is implementing shit payment practices. Perfect timing.

    Congratulations, you spent 11 minutes flogging the proverbial deceased quadroped.
    You enjoyed Oblivion, but you want to spout the usual bullshit talking points about Fallout 4 and Skyrim? Me thinks you don't actually have that much to say and have co-opted 'outrage'.
