I love Fallout. Honestly, I do. But there are some things about the game that really get on my nerves. It's not the design of the game or that it's too hard or that it's nothing like New Vegas. It's the little things that bother me. The tiny, little, terrible things that get on my case every time I start up the game.
10 terrible things about playing Fallout 4 (one of my favorite games but I'm also nitpicky, so deal with it).
I spend so much time farming. Like, almost all of my time. But I can't even really call it farming because I'm just placing vegetables in a straight line (or at least trying to) for hours on end. Why can't I just tend to them myself? I can't even count the amount of times I've built a recruitment beacon just so I could have another farmer on hand to tend with all of my delicious mutfruit.
2. Inventory Management
The inventory system in Fallout is horrible. It's essentially a giant fucking menu that alphabetizes everything for you. On paper, this sounds like a good enough way to manage the inventory. But once you're a wasteland farmer/chef (like myself). You'll have so many things in your AID section you won't know what to do with yourself. Yeah, I can hotkey things. But not nearly enough as I want to. And every time I watch a Let's Play of the game on PC, I see people using nifty inventory mods that keep their Pip-Boy looking nice and tidy.
3. Legendary Enemies Appear at the Worst Times
This has happened to me way too many times. Either I'm just finishing a quest or walking back towards Sanctuary (I try not to fast travel at all) and end up being blindsided by a Legendary Deathclaw or Raider. Sure, they'll drop something nice for me. But I'm already out of ammo and equipment so I always have to run away.
4. All of the Damn Locations
5. Trying to Find all the Power Armor
the game keeps spawning the SAME SET OF T-60 POWER ARMOR
6. Trying to Find Dogmeat
BUT I CAN NEVER FUCKING FIND YOU.years ago
7. The Fucking Pipe Weapons
because I'll never use one of these guns again.
8. Not Enough Adhesives!
9. Radiation Storms
black goes with everything. Don't you know ANYTHING about wasteland fashion?
absolutely hate Radscorpionsbugs are fucking gross dude
Phew. So there you have it. All of the horrible things about Fallout 4 that I'll continue to deal with because it's my absolute favorite game to ever have been a game. Is there anything you guys think I'm missing? Be sure to let me know in the comments!
