Fallout 4 vs Doom (2016)

I have both.

 

So far I've played DOOM twice and I'm barely past the starting area of Fallout 4. But I'm in a "fast paced, badass, metal" FPS mood as of late. I can only do so much "exploring" and I'm also playing Dragon Age right now, so that takes up my "exploring" budget. 

 

Fallout, like the games before it, is a "Fight a little, explore a lot" game. Doom is just the opposite. "Fight a lot, explore a little."

They are both meh I'm my opinion, save your money for a different game like dishonored 2 <3 

 

Fo4' was fun and all going through the campaign but then it gets boring, modding isn't as fun as skyrim

Doom, the single player campaign was GREAT, but multiplayer is meh and game bores itself.

Why not both?

Fallout 4 will last you far longer than DOOM

And if you like atmospheric games like fallout, I would just get fallout 3 and NV which might be on sale as well, and imo better than 4

I'd get Doom, just don't expect the multiplayer to be good.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I also have both.  I got bored of Fallout after the first couple of hours and have played through Doom at least three times now!  

 

Fallout is good, it just wasn't my thing.

Both are great. FO4 has a serious amount of mods now and alot of content. Doom4 SP is awesome. You realy should get both.

I like both, but doom just got an arcade mode yesterday which is a shit ton of fun.
This is honestly one I couldn't decide on.
My only grip with fallout 4 is, it's not very well optimized, but still a great game.

I recommend Fallout: New Vegas over Fallout 3, many people have had compatibility issues with Fallout 3 running on Windows 10.

you just have to install a windows live client thing-a-ma-bob and it works perfectly. It asks you to sign in but you don't even need to. It's weird, I don't understand it. You download it and forget about it, and it works perfectly
