I can't wait to play GoW, it looks amazing and though i've tried to avoid reviews due to spoilers, I have noticed some excellent scores and headlines coming from the ones I've not been able to avoid.Fussy bugger!
Its not important to play the previous games - you start off with creating your own character and its set in a different region too. The only benefits is that you will have more of an understanding of the lore and the situation by playing other Fallout games but its not like some games that 4 follows on from 3 which continued on from 2.Apologies to hijack this thread somewhat, but I have a question about 'Fallout 4'.
This game I acquired as part of a recent XBOXOne-X bundle. I haven't actually played any of the previous three nor have I opened it up yet (Still sealed). So my question is.. Do you need to have played the previous 3 to get what's going on? Or can you just jump straight into '4' and enjoy without knowing any prior potential back stories?
Will this game require consuming a lot of my time given I am currently regularly playing FIFA 18 for 1-2 hours every other night & occasionally breaking that up with a bit of ROTTR..??
I do agree in part. For me, Fallout 4 seemed very much like Fallout 3 with some clunky base-building bolted on. Granted its a bit more colourful and slightly better looking but not as good as other games this gen. It also released months after the Witcher 3 which made it feel more dated.i felt the exact opposite i found fallout 4 a repetative bore fest
