Man, I don’t think I’ve seen this much hype for a single video game announcement in a long time. People have been waiting for years for the next Fallout game, and Bethesda seems ready to deliver. The real question is though, what are you hoping for from the game?
I played Fallout 3 pretty extensively when it was released, but for whatever reason just could get into Fallout: New Vegas. I’ll probably have to re-download it and try to get into it again, or maybe even you can convince me why I need to play it in the comments.
Anyways, we are here to talk about Fallout 4 and boy am I excited to see what Bethesda has in store for us. It has been quite a while since Skyrim was released, which was Bethesda’s last major release. If you want to feel old like me, that was all the way back in November of 2011, and people are still playing the game to this day. This means Bethesda has had four years now to refine their game engine, take notes on all the big open world RPG games released over the years and hopefully build the game you’ve all been waiting for.
I don’t think many would question that CD Projekt RED has taken the RPG throne with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, so I’m very interested and hopeful to see Fallout 4 one up it.
In terms of what I want to see from Fallout 4 though? Well, obviously I want to see an expansive and detailed nuclear post-apocalyptic open world, because who doesn’t want to see that? I’m also very interested to see if the rumors about Fallout 4 were true about the game taking place in and around Boston. But, I’m more so hoping for much better shooting mechanics as that was one of my main draw backs while playing Fallout 3 and New Vegas. If we can get some modern shooting mechanics along with an improved V.A.T.S system, that could be one hell of a visceral shooting experience.
I’m hoping we also see some variation within the post nuclear apocalyptic world as well. Metro 2033 and Last Light have set the standard for post apocalyptic landscapes in my book and I would love to see Fallout 4 top those games as well. I could probably go on and on about what I’d like to see from Fallout 4, but I’m more interested in what you have to say.
Let us know in the comments section what you’d like to see from Fallout 4!
