I've played a lot of New Vegas and 4, some 3, and I have 76. If they can do something to add some value to 76, I'm all for it. The game is a serious disappointment and I hope it isn't the end of the franchise. 


My Current Setup:

AMD Ryzen 2700X 50th Anniversary

Corsair Vengence LPX 3200mhz 16GB

MSI B450 Gaming Plus

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

PNY GTX 1060 6GB

ADATA SU800 1TB

EVGA G3 750W

RAIDMAX Monster II

beQuiet PureWings 3 140mm x5

Nay for Fallout 76.  Video game outrage usually seems overblown to me, but between the poor QI before release, inability to fix bugs after, and microtransactions taken to the extreme, no money should be sunk into this game.

The franchise is excellent.  It’s a fascinating concept that has repetitively been done well.  I was given to understand that the reason fallout76 was such a horrific mutant hellspawn was a bunch of stuff having to do with making paper checkboxes for financials people who knew and cared nothing about video games.  I suspect fallout 76 could be fixed.  It would require removal of a lot of the horrible crap that got added for that purpose and the reworking of some other stuff that got neglected so that garbage could be added.  If wastelanders is an attempt to do that it would be worth seeing.  The company expended so much public trust with the big sellout though that I’d have to see what it looked like first.

I don't think there's anything possible that they can do that will add value to the game. Certainly could subtract some value, however...

That would be negative value.  I paid 49.99 for fallout4 but the only way I’d play fallout76 as is is if it was free and even then I might not waste my time.

Knowing what I know now, having played the game a while and experienced the poor stability and server glitches, it would be a hard sell for anything over than free at this point. Heck, almost no one is ever on when I get bored and fire the game up, maybe a dozen people in an entire server.

It could be turned into something fantastic though.  There are a lot of terrific assets there.

I really hope in some future expansions there's the ability to go into vaults, that's one of the best parts of Fallout. If that functionality is added, and not behind a paywall or anything like that, I'd probably get into it.

But then I’d have to pay a fairly large chunk of money to even look at something many consider so bad as to be valueless.  It strikes me as a poor risk.  Someone will and will talk about what is there.

Trailer talks about story changes.  The story as I understand was never the problem.

I agree that the franchise is excellent.  Maybe the game could be fixed, but even if it was that just reinforces the fix it after release mentality that has been so prevenlent in video game developers lately.  If they fix it, let it fail anyway, so they learn something from it.  This failure might help The Elder Scrolls 6 and Fallout 5.

It’s an option.  Fix it after release isnt as good as make it right the first time but it’s better than leaving a piece of garbage as a piece of garbage.  The issue the industry is going to run into with fix it after release is people are going to avoid buying things until after they’re fixed.
