Video Game Fallout 76 - Some love through all the hate

As a huge fan of the Fallout series, I pre-ordered Fallout 76. There has been a lot of hate spread around about this game, some of it warranted, but it's not all that bad. First off, there was a large group of people who hated it before they even played it. They went into it with a chip on their shoulder. They were never even going to give it a chance. Yes, there are bugs. Yes, Bethesda dropped the ball on the quality of the bag for the special edition. Yes, Bethesda screwed up with the glitch in their system that revealed personal data on those users. But the game itself is actually pretty fun. If you go into the game with expectations of it being like other Fallout games, you probably won't have fun. If you go into it knowing that it's an MMORPG, where you can do lots of exploration and make up your own stories, you'll probably really enjoy it. Especially when some of the bugs get ironed out. Either way, it's fun to play, especially when you have a group of friends to join you on your adventures.

I never gotten the chance to play the game but I might have to give it a chance in the future.
It's worth a shot. It still has a lot of hate and, admittedly, I haven't played it in quite a while. A few of my friends have been playing it though and said it has gotten much better.

Well, if it is at least a little like the other fallout games, with having an open world and character creation, then it is worth a shot.

One of the complaints people have is that there are no human NPC's. There's very little to the story telling. And that also makes me sad.

Started playing this morning, the games is pretty decent. It plays just like fallout 4 honestly. I would not have fun playing this game by myself, you really need friends to make this sort of game fun. This is the kind of game you joke around and goof off with while playing with your friends.

Well, that makes me less tempted to try it out now. I really prefer games where you don't have to soley rely on a in-game party for fun.

I recommend watching some various streams or YouTube videos of gameplay before making a decision. You can certainly have fun by yourself, but the way the game is designed, it's quite lonely.

Yeah, I usually look to online gameplay before really getting a game. At least most of the time.
