As right as he is, there is no denying that something has been lost over the course of the series in Fallout.
There has undeniably been a much less meaningful interaction between the player and the world, and the experience has been diluted for the sake of being friendly and unpunishing.

Now, I don't condone such changes that bring about drastic shifts in direction for the worse, there is no argument when it comes to seeing your actual response or being given a vague four directions style dialogue wheel where you can't even see what you're going to say.

That screencap is misguided and misused in this thread, and does certainly not apply to most of what we've seen about Fallout 4 so far.

Leave it to /v/ to be retarded, even when it tires not to be.

Your character is fully voiced in Fallout 4 though. Do you really want to hear the actor read all that back to you if you've already read it?

Fallout 3's (and TES's by extension) dialogue worked well for a game with a largely silent protagonist. You could see what your character was saying without hearing their voice. With FO4 they went with a voiced protagonist, and when you have a voiced protagonist certain things have to change. That's just the nature of game development.

I have no idea if TES6 is going to have a voiced protagonist or not. Given that there are multiple races who all have different vocal archetypes attached to them, I'd say it's more likely that they stick to text-based PC dialogue, but then again maybe Bethesda is crazy and they will do 10,000 lines of dialogue times however many playable races TES6 has. Maybe this is a point at which Bethesda intends for Fallout and TES to fork further away from each other.

>>315315212
People forget that vidya is a business, and it has exploded. Long gone are the days where companies like Bethesda put passion into their products, though there are still a few good eggs out there
>>
>>315315045
It's not only about how you converse though.

Fallout is supposed to be a role playing game, where you should be able to create a fleshed out character and explore a realistic world as whoever you want.

If you think every conversational outcome can be boiled down between a NPC and a unique character to four fucking options then you are beyond retarded.
>>
I'm not saying FO4 will be good, I'm not saying I even plan to play it, but can we have at least a modicum of perspective on the whole dialogue thing?

Alpha Protocol has fucking awesome dialogue. It's tight, occasionally hilarious, and is always clear what sort of response you're giving. It feels more like real conversations than any other game I've played, because there isn't one path you have to go down for the conversation to end- it isn't "win" or "lose" the conversation, and it's stronger because of that.

FO4 probably won't be like that. In fact it almost certainly won't be. But at least articulate your point with more thought than "OOGA-OOGA SHORT RESPONSE = BAD BAD."

I guess this game will appeal more to people like me who straight up don't give a shit then. The closest thing I've come to enjoyable RP has been in WoW. I literally could never understand how some people like to roleplay with... themselves. Alone. Solo. With noone to build a story with. Just your own imagination.
I'd like to call those people autistic but I don't care enough to look up what an autist really is.
>>
>>315314882

People in real life only think of one option during a real conversation, therefore Fallout 4's dialogue is four times better than real communication.
>>
>>315315414
then they shouldn't have given the protag a voice
>>
>>315315212
The previous Bethesda Fallout and Elder Scrolls games appealed to the general public just fine without a dialogue wheel.

There's far too much stock put into the actual content of the game. Casuals don't give a shit. They play whatever's been hyped up the most. That means ad bucks and 10/10s which are pretty much guaranteed for any Bethesda title.
>>
>>315314158
Anon is right. In time all the casuals will realize that their 10/10 GOTY Skyrim and Fallout 3 (their first vidya and RPG ever) were awful games that needed way better game mechanics and atmosphere to be enjoyable.

Give it another 10 years for the normies to git slightly more gud and realize that they're playing shitty games and we'll be back on track.
>>
>>315315414
Nobody asked for voiced protag, much less voiced by faggot Baker.
>>
People say the dialogue wheel is like Mass Effect, but it's even worse. Mass Effect at least gave enough information so you had a good idea of what your character would say. If Fallout 4 gave a little more information other than HATE NEWSPAPERS, FERAL?, or SARCASTIC then it wouldn't get so much hate.
>>
>>315315414
Deus Ex displayed the full line if you hover over the option.

People like knowing what they're going to say in a roleplaying game. Or else we get shit like LA Noire's dialog system.
>>
>>315315414
And that's precisely the problem with FO4. The voiced protagonist. Sure it sounds cool to have all dialogue voiced, but it just limits the choices so much. Personally I think voiced protagonist worsens the role-playing part as it feels like I'm not role-playing as anyone I want, rather just controlling a pre-set character.
>>
>>315315680
And I guess what I mean with saying
>>role playing game
is that I understand that it IS an RPG, but.. an RPG to me has only been a way to shorten "game that lets you spend attribute/skill points in a build". That's been it to me when I've played them.

It's obvious bait.

TWD is a linear experience; a completely different kind of game compared to Fallout. His statement holds no relevancy. TWD does not have a massive game world, exploration, nor is it an RPG. You cannot refuse "quests" or roleplay a character.

TWD is an interactive story, your character has already been created for you.

There's not a valid comparison, or argument to be made between that specific gameplay element that can't be picked apart with ease by anons.

Two completely different genres.

Voice Acted protag's suck unless the character is fully established, and the game is based on the player roleplaying as that established character. Bethesda and Bioware RPGs voice act the protagonist, even though the protagonist is designed as a (largely) a blank slate for the player to develop, instead of roleplaying as an established character with an established personality.

Basically, Bethesda, Bioware, and too many others want their cake and to eat it too, and it sucks.

Post that coypasta about the writing failing the 5 basic rules of the system fallout is based on.
>>
>>315316381
A line needs to be drawn. Etrian Odyssey is an empty as fuck game and don't let people defend it with calling you unimaginative, a game has to be roleplay friendly in the sense that it must support your actions and choices with in-game results, and the "imagination" part will only come from you thinking up your character's general backstory and alignment to stick to your choices in the game.

For example, you want to roleplay a lawful evil character, so you pick the choices a character like that would pick, and let the game build upon it and react accordingly.


This is completely lost in Fallout 4.

Apples and oranges.

But that is a stark difference between say the roleplaying that plays in my head when I played F2. Cause in F2, the skills and traits and perks I picked helped support the character I was playing.

That's great, and all. But a RPG is about playing a role

I want to be a bumbling marauder jet addict that cons naive villagers to support his habit
I want to be an iditoic explosive crazy nut who isolates himself in the wastes, dynamiting any sorry sap who dares to venture too close
I want to be an altruistic scientist who is intelligent but a useful fool easily deceived by smooth talkers.

You can't do any of that shit when dialog is boiled down to HATE, YES, NO, NEWSPAPERS, GET, ME LIKE, ME NO LIKE, NO TOUCH, HEY, STOP.

If I wanted to play a boring bland shooter where I try to run through the game without thinking about my character just trying to max my stats, I'd play a fucking shooter.

>>315316063
And I agree to an extent, however I think that between the two franchises that Bethesda develops, a voiced protagonist is less likely to harm Fallout than it would Elder Scrolls. I'm willing to give it a chance, and if I don't like it then I will jump right in with you guys and start shitting on it and trying to mod it out, but I want to at least play the game for a few hours and see how I like it for myself. I don't think a voiced protag will be quite as limiting as it was in something like Mass Effect, because Mass Effect itself was a much more limited game (it was a linear game and your roleplaying options always just boiled down to being polite or rude).
>>
>>315316845

I'm just saying that putting more effort into playing Fallout than

>decide on roughly what playstyle you want in that playthrough and set perks accordingly when leveling up
>picking good, neutral or "evil" options on the go depending on what you think about the character you're interacting with at the time
is just overdoing it.

>spending time making up an imaginary background, like where the character came from (the vault?), what they like and don't like, etc
>this charcter is evil and as such i will only pick evil options or straight up murder everything in sight
>this character is a cowboy and i will dress up as one because of that
Like I just don't see the point. If I want to change on the fly, I'll do that. These things would keep me away from doing that.

Just because you don't see the point doesn't mean there isn't one.
The whole point of role playing games is being given the wide array of options and roles to play, and to play them to their fullest extent within the game.

Just because you don't see the point or don't like going out of your comfort zone to play a distinct character that isn't just a reflection of yourself or a gun running rut you'd find in your average FPS doesn't mean nobody else should.

And as I said, an RPG isn't about you having to pour in all your imagination for it to work, for it to work and stand on it's own it has to give the player the support in the form of outcomes, responses and options to carry out the different roles the player can choose to do in the game.

That's why in games like Sacred you had different races and roles that you could play and the dialogue trees varied, you played a certain character but you really didn't need "imagination" to do it.

In Fallout NV you can play many different types of characters, and there's plenty of dialogue options to do so.

In Fallout 4 you only have four different options at any given time, and they're extremely streamlined and unspecial, you're only playing as this vault dweller Bethesda (and not you) has created. It removes the role playing elements of the role playing game. Because, as much as idiots that want to play with semantics do, just because you play the role of the Master Chief doesn't mean the game is an RPG. This is the same, just because you play as the Vault Dweller doesn't mean it's an RPG.

At the end of the day, a GOOD RPG will not force the player to go out of their way to use their imagination as the central point of the gameplay/roleplay.

And it's why games like KOTOR are considered good RPGs and Dragon Age Inquisition are not.

>>315318157
Yeah, when the choices are extremely vague and then the character does something unexpected it irks me. I think Walking Dead had a pretty good handle on it, because I generally knew what kind of response Lee was going to give based on my button prompts.

Unfortunately TWD is not designed for multiple playthroughs. It's a lot of smoke and mirrors to make you feel like your choices matter, but in the end doors A, B, and C all lead down the same hall, just done in such a way that you won't realize it until you play the game again and try to do things differently.

>So it kills immersion.
For you.
I'm plenty immersed with everything else the world has to offer. It's what the other characters do and react to that makes my immersion. My "character" is just me reacting to the world - I guess I always just pretty much self insert?
>it takes the 'role' out of playing
Well yeah. I play these games for the entertaining gameplay mostly. The story will be told largely in one way no matter what options I go with. If it's like in New Vegas with different factions and all, I simply just pick the other factions to see their side of the story, not because my character has anything to do with it.

I don't want a voiced protagonist in a game where I'm supposed to roleplay as whatever. In Fallout 4 I don't roleplay as anything other than the protagonist. Whatever name he's given, it's a set character now. His background is set, he has a voice, they really outdid themselves this time in making the game seriously hard for people that want to actually roleplay.

So yeah fuck that, I'm not buying a lackluster RPG lol

Not either of the people you are replying to, but I adressed your point about the self insert here >>315317919

And again, since you're playing a self insert mindless character, the illusion of consistency and coherence within the game doesn't need to be too thought out, as you'll just react to whatever situation the game gives you, regardless of your alignment or roleplay directions, because you're roleplaying as yourself and your just taking everything for granted.

That's why Fallout 4 will appeal to you, but not to the people who like fully fledged out RPGs with many options and paths to take.

And for the last time, just because you don't get it doesn't mean it shouldn't be there.
I for one find people going to watch soccer matches to the stadium completely pointless and utterly boring, but I don't go out of my way to flaunt that when that gets ruined for them.

Once again, for the sake of simplicity and a more unpunishing and friendly game design, deep and meaningful choices and interactions in an RPG game get the boot.

That's fine. It already sounds like something I'll enjoy a lot more.

The only thing that truly matters is that the gameplay is entertaining, and so far it looks to be an upgrade from the previous games in most categories. And that's all that matters.

How do we fix the video-game industry? With the huge influx of casual and fake gamers in the past couple of years, we have obviously seen a decrease in quality games and developers getting lazy because they know marketing and name brand is more important than quality of the game. I'm not saying this to seem patrician or "elite gamer making fun of newcomers" I'm just saying that this popularity of games is just because of this new pro-nerd culture that a lot of people (especially females) is hopping on because of bandwagon. Any ideas on what we can do, if anything. Or do we just have to ride this shit storm out.

Fallout 3 : 3 mil
Fallout NV : 2.5 mil

Fallout 1~2 : Basic engine, small team, small audience, educated audience of computer nerds, complex text and themes possible due to said audiance, very small corporate pressure. Little to no hype generation. Made only for the PC platform, no internet bullshit.

Fallout 3 : Famous game, Famous developer, Broad Audience, Huge team to make game no sense of community and communication, has to be made for consoles as a well as PC, has to be understood by broad audience, complex themes not possible because numerous factors including target audience, huge corporation studio, internet critique, series revival after botched project aimed to be an AAA seller instead of a story medium and so on

Fallout NV : Franchise name secure exploration of more complex themes possible

Fallout 4 : Log awaited sequel, huge corporation, broad themes not possible because of super broad audience appeal because of the success of 3 and NV. Huge hype build up from studios alternate title Skyrim. Very unrealistic hype buildup on the internet resulting in a rushed money grab because of the possiblity of future improvment via modern platforms such as Steam, PSN and XBL

I always had difficulty roleplaying in Fallout. If they were doing this with TES I'd be a lot more upset since I usually end up making a dozen characters in a TES game, but with Fallout I usually stick with one and if I make another character it's usually so I can do a bad karma playthrough. I understand why people who are really into Fallout are probably upset, however I'm more willing to give the system a chance in Fallout than I would be in Elder Scrolls.

What the fuck do you mean "we have to do". All we can do is complain and let our voices be heard on forums and comment sections, and don't buy the games.

However know we are now in the minority, and as soon as a game makes it switch of audience from hardcore to casual/new, the hardcore audience can pretty much be ignored.

There is nothing "we" can do.

But Anon I love all of those RPGs too, well, the ones with good gameplay.
There's just nothing particularily wrong with the way this game will deliver storytelling this time around.

After thinking about it I think that's our difference here. I play videogames of any genre for the gameplay and nothing else. For the largest part, what the storytelling and lore and whatever does has nothing to do with the gameplay, and as thus is irrelevant to the point where it has no influence on the game's "final score".

Like, I can't imagine anyone giving a game a low score "because the story was bad" rather than "because the gameplay was bad" to have a serious opinion.

>There's just nothing particularily wrong with the way this game will deliver storytelling this time around.

I absolutely disagree.

Also, an RPG is more than just gameplay. An RPG is an example of a game when done well the result is better than the sum of it's parts, and a great world, story and player interaction actively works towards making the game an overall much better experience than just it's gameplay.

Judging from your responses in this thread though, I don't expect you to understand that or even make an attempt to do so.
As far as I'm concerned, I'm done arguing with you.

To you.
To me, an RPG is just an indicator that the game should include stat distribution and build variety.
It's just like how an FPS is expected to be in first person and shooting guns.
It's like how an MMO game should feature at least a dozen other players online at any given time suffering through the same shitty koreagrinding as you.
It's like how a sports game has to relate to sports, or how a racing game features fast moving vehicles competing about who gets to the goal line first.

Nothing is wrong with the dialog, it's the same shit as FO3. People bitching about dialog never played FO3 where they think that dialog system was somehow more meaningful or even coming close to FO1/2. It is essentially the same now, good, bad, neutral, more info in a smaller package - this is just /v/ bitching about something because they think they'll really show the industry.

It's one thing to be critical and another to be a complete autist by exclaiming, "fewer words means the game is overall shit and ruined." It's like a cycle with /v/, same thing happened with Witcher 3 leading up, and I'm sure it will happen for whatever other RPG comes out.

If you don't like it go play the new Wasteland or Pillars of Eternity for "muh dialog tree."

Which part of FPS with RPG elements did you not understand?

Borderlands is not a traditional RPG game, and doesn't have the core features of an RPG game, like a story that reacts to the player's character and build, and with player interaction in the form of choiced dialogue.

Borderlands just happens to be an FPS game where they threw in some stats on weapons and gear to further accentuate the level progression and a skill tree to further accentuate the player's specialization.
Is CoD an RPG? It sure as hell lets you mess with the stats of your gun and your charater with a skill/perk tree.

Shut the fuck up already you mouthbreathing moron. Borderlands is NOT an RPG.

I will not have this discussion anymore. I'm done arguing with retards for the night.

Same with table top, those games that eschew role playing and are just about numbers? Those are called dungeon crawlers, not role playing games.

ah, ok. you must be one of those in favor of a voiced protag. it's shite and your opinion is shite. fo4 is very disappointing. A little sad given 7 years and a shit load of money and this is the cartoony detritus they came up with.

the ads and the game lost the dark, dreary feel and instead picked up a facetious tone, that makes the game seem like a parody of it's past installments.

It's like mullholland drive except there's no dark undertone, just a cheesy superficial feel that's underscored with equally bad graphics and textures.

It's as if it was decided that realism was too pricey so as a cop-out a stylized graphics motif was created.

also, little retarded things like the laser having recoil show there wasn't much thought put into it, at least from intelligent minds.

Because it was still an amazingly good game, well-deserving of every positive word it got. What was still delivered is some of the most entertaining stuff you can create with a videogame. What was there is a 9/10 game.
Realistically the only cut "content" was just more story, which is exactly why it didn't have any influence over the final score. Only gameplay CAN have influence over the final score.

Technically, they objectively get better each year with new technologies, sure they might not always be perfect but that's not something that'll ever happen. Regardless of if you think the story is stupid or if it's unfinished MGSV is still from a technical/gameplay department better than MGS1, maybe not in design (i can see some flaws in that also) but these are things you can expect of every game

I understand being cool edgy and cynical must be aligned with being more 'cerebral' but you know this kinda thing is undeniable, at least objectively

Which is what really surprised me. MGS games are known for their stories and one major plotpoint in the game got axed and no one seemed to give two shits. The plotpoint that showed why Liquid hated BB so much in MGS1.

The game was great to begin with but it got extremely repetitive in the later hours. I also felt the mother base side of the game lacked a lot.

As a pretty long time fan of MGS, MGSV was quite lackluster. Though I think that comes with any magnum opus where the creator doesn't have a clear focus. It's obvious Kojima wanted to do LOADS of shit in that game without proper experience in it all. Such as open worlds and shit like that. And he STILL did it to a degree better than Bethesda does. A company that PRIDES ITSELF ON OPEN WORLD GAMES.

Literally fucking why? I seriously don't see why people are having this much of a problem with MGSV's open world. The game is designed from the ground up to control like a structured stealth/action game in an open map, so obviously there aren't going to be passive NPC's to chat with.

No shit, the point is that role-playing isn't just about one extreme or the other, Anon. When tabletop RPGs were first coining the term, it was basically D&D and a lot of people just played to kill shit and get items while some did it for the narrative. To say that RPGs are definitively about one or the other is absolutely retarded.

Problem is that Bethesda doesn't simplify or improve features, they remove them.

The only addition to their games that they've made is weapon and armor mods, as well as the settlement building. Time will tell if these features just work TM like the popular mods they were based on or if they're as broken as everything else in the game.

alpha protocol was an entirely different game. You have a predetermined character that has different shades of his own personality.

Put it this way. In FO3, a fucking horrible game if there was one, I could read the choices and pick one i felt my character would probably say based on what i imagined (yes that forbidden autistic word!) my character's personality was like.

here in FO4, i can still imagine my character to have a certain personality and do my best to roleplay it, but every time i talk to someone I'm going to be paralyzed for 5-6 minutes delicately trying to figure out what my character is going to say and HOW they're going to say it based on the 1-2 word 'summary' dialogue choice.

That's not good game design, in my own (PDD-NOS diagnosed) opinion.

The game is superficial, is missing darker themes. Missing subtlety and subtext. Interaction is at face value. fo3 was tailored for a more worldly and intelligent audience. This is more for the tv audience and the masses, which would explain why voicing the protag was seen as necessary.

fo3 had a strong element of horror and had sexual themes. i doubt we will see that in fo4.

>fo3 tailored for more worldly and intelligent audience
How come it sold way more than previous games then? How come it's one of the major factors why fallout has a renewed interest? If these 'unwashed masses' are so dumb how come they loved fo3?

fo3 was streamlined and missed many mechanics (and niche elements, like low INT dialogue) in previous games and also had a unfulfilled ending, one with various issues (aka, how come the mutant couldn't go in the radiation chamber? The only thing he said was 'oh i couldn't do it and steal 'your' task) how are these flaws 'worldly' and 'intelligent'?

It had brief sexual themes sure, but it certainly wasn't as intelligent as you're making it out to be and it's part of why fo4 is even in the public's interest.

1) voiced protag
2) antiquated engine

4) shit textures
5) shit dialogue options

You're saying this shit while nobody knows fuck all about what the game actually has in terms of themes, story etc. Do you really think that everyone around you who has differing opinions than your own are shills or are you just roleplaying?

I'm guessing your first fallout game was the third one. If it is, I'm really confused as to why you think fallout 4 will be shit with reasons like "voiced protag". Fallout 3 was far from a Fallout game. Fallout 3 was streamlined and made for a wider audience, I don't understand what is making you think otherwise.

Graphics, and production value caused costs to skyrocket.

AAA Ps2 games were made in 1-2 years (often less) and with far fewer employee's (watch the credits of games from different gems and the number of people grows exponentially).

Longer dev time + more devs means that a game needs to sell literally millions of copies to return on investment. You used to need 500k for a game to be successful. The market has grown, but only enough so certain games are viable and more niche genres only have 1-2 devs doing it because if the player base split no one would make any money.

Why are people so whiny over something so stupid as creating a special snowflake with their own background or some shit?
In each other Fallout to date including this one you've been playing a predefined character with no option to stray from that path.

I'm a little late to reply now but we just have to wait for the games industry to go the route of the movie industry. Arguably the games industry will have an easier time doing this than even the movie industry did.

Indie movies are now pretty high quality and made pretty consistently, and enjoyed by critics and people who love movies (more than just your average guy who goes to watch the brand new capeshit).

In the future, the same thing will happen to videogames, and we already see it now. Indie development is only going to get easier and it won't just be filled with hipster faggots. Eventually the indie games market will cater to people like us. People who want good games again instead of casualized over-marketed shit.

What do you think dialogue options, karma and faction systems are for? You take an active role in the story and lore. Hence the role playing. Builds and stats are a part of it but not its entirety.

This retarded as fuck statement is proof /v/ is flooded with shills and underage vermin.
>>
>>315332257
sick dude I suppose i should say to you again I honestly don't care for fo4 but lets look at this logically ok:

Why would bethesda hire MULTIPLE shills to try to convince (despite me not even trying to convince you to buy fo4) a stubborn autist to buy a game, as opposed to posting somewhere with unanimous approval of the game showcasing more features.

Again, I know you MUST be samefagging because if there's anyone who's retarded enough to think shilling on 4chan is reality, it's the person who uses fo3 as a template for a good fallout game.

>>315314394
Having less text on the screen doesn't necessarily mean the choices are less complex. They used the same kind of system in Alpha Protocol, which I've seen brought up as an example of a game where choices actually do mean something.

That said I don't trust Bethesda to pull it off properly, and in a game where you do actually have complex choices it's not actually a great system. One of the biggest problems with a first playthrough of Alpha Protocol was the fact that it describes reasonably complex choices and actions with, at maximum, two words. In some cases this can leave you guessing as to what selecting that option could possibly do.

For example, there is a man named Brayko who you fight, and if you speak to him and spare his life you learn that he is fighting you because Surkov, a man you thought was on your side, has betrayed you.

Later, you confront Surkov, and one of the options is just "Brayko". If you haven't played the game, try to guess what this dialogue option makes you say.

Did you guess that it signals Brayko to come in and stab the shit out of Surkov?

I didn't.

That's the craziest thing about the entire genre, see. When it comes to video games, "Role Playing Game" literally does not have anything to do with actually roleplaying anything at all. You're actually severely autistic if you think that you're being imaginative for sitting around and "roleplaying" by yourself in your closet. It's more insane than recreating a real city in Minecraft.
RPG is literally only a type of video game genre, like FPS, racing or strategy are. And what it implies is that you have a character to build stats and collect loot for; customization. It does in no way imply that you have to PRETEND that you're playing another person with a made-up backstory special snowflake piece of shit.

Basically, you autists are taking a fucking video game concept too seriously. Go back to your LARPing or play WoW if you want RP for fuck's sake. It isn't a concept that relates to video games and as thus has 0% impact on a video game's value.

it might be in the name but RPGs sure as fuck are not about roleplaying. It's a bastardized name that no longer fits with what RPGs are. The name was given when games had a story and other games didn't so you roleplay. This was back in the 8 bit days. Nowadays every game has a story so you can consider Halo a roleplaying game by that definition. So now it just refers to game that are about leveling and distributing points as a main form of strength. There are many games that do this so they have RPG elements.

tl;dr the name RPG isn't about playing what role you want

To progress the story. 99% of the time you can click through them; or rather, you will definitely skip through most of it as fast as possible if you're on replay mode. They are for the vast majority of the part irrelevant because they have nothing to do with the actual gameplay.
>karma
Mostly more irrelevant shit. The only impact it does is allowing/disabling you from interacting with some NPCs. If you genuinely give a shit about the story, good for you, but it has no impact on the gameplay.
>faction systems
More >Muh story, nothing else. Same responses as above apply.

The reason anyone played through any of the other Fallout has been because the gameplay has been varied and entertaining, with a large world full of things to explore and fuck around with. Good storytelling on top of it is only a bonus, but it has no influence to the gameplay.
The most satisfying thing that can be achieved is to find a rare as fuck weapon and blow stuff up with it.

Honestly, it wouldn't be so bad if they didn't make it seem like they're actively trying to distance the game from the RPG genre.

Even the little things like the player character narrating every single action he does makes it seem like the devs at Bethesda thought "hmm, how much can we limit the player's roleplaying ability?" I'm not even an RP faggot but you can't even call Fallout an RPG anymore if there is no RP.

I think we're starting to get here with some of the Kickstarter games that have been coming out like Wasteland 2 and PoE, granted one of those is a "big" developer. I'm not too worried since there are typically only 1-2 games I buy a year anyway for the past 5 years and I've been consistently entertained by some quality titles.

people are complaining there are less dialogue options don't even realize that most of the time when there are so many dialogue options they don't mean shit, they just make their reply slightly different but the conversation ends the same as option x,y,z.

this senpai desu

I remember playing Gothic 4 and along everything else with the game, the dialogue parts were terrible. I'd read 3 - 4 responses there were at least two lines long each, to then choose one and end up skipping what my character would say.

However, the problem FO4 is how non descriptive or sometives even cryptic the responses are. They should have gone for a middle ground either by doing like the Witcher has been doing with a summary of the response, or having the text expand as you hover over it.

Except that's not at all how it goes.

>what the fuck is this shit bethesdrones? implying this shitty game has graphics from 2005, it's such a shitty game, holy fuck guys look at how shitty this game's graphics are!!
>But Anon, they're not really aesthetically displeasing in any way and look just like something you'd expect from a 2015 ga-
>YOU'RE WRONG AD HOMINEM!!!!!!
etc

I think you replied to the wrong guy because your implications do not relate to anything I said in any way. Or maybe you just don't understand English...

You said fallout 3 was more of an 'adult' or 'worldly' game, by mentioning it you've brought it up for discussion and rebuttal, funnily enough you're using the same logic you think we're applying. fo3 was the exact same deal, it took away a lot of features I mentioned and added streamlined ones, people back then probably thought the same as you, which is why this sort of 'zelda' effect is always seen prior to releases and always results in nothing at all, despite stating your desires to 'change' the industry.

You'll do this a few more years then maybe realise the pointlessness of it all and you'll stop posting, which is the true cycle of most 4chan posters, rather than this strange idea that 4chan has been invaded by foreign forces that are 'ruining it' because it doesn't fit the idea of 4chan you initially had as an impressionable teen.

you'll get it eventually bud, trust me.

Alright /v/. Give me all your complaints about Fallout 4 and I will refute them.

I really don't care if you call me a shill or todd or any meme like that, if you wanna prove your point, do it now. Otherwise you all look like memers.

Dude you are just getting way too fucking mad and that's what I realize about all these threads, they just nitpick the fucking hell out of this game.
At the end of the day its all a matter of whether you liked the game or not, and judging from what I've seen so far the game looks fucking fantastic. If it still has the same flaws as the other fallout games them I'm fucking fine with it I loved those games too. If it has less dialogue options then I don't fucking care, that's not why I liked the fallout games.

I'm not ignoring the criticism like you seem to think, the criticism you are making is so fucking nitpicky it literally doesn't mean I won't play the game for those few flaws. Maybe you won't buy it, but why the fuck are you so mad that other people aren't as mad at the flaws as you are? Grow the fuck up, stop being an annoying cunt.

Halo doesn't have any freedom to roleplay, though. You play exactly the same role as any other Halo player.

Mainstream gamers deserve every shit they get. They deserve what happened to them with the PC batman game, they deserve shit bethesda titles, they deserve the microtransactions, the DLC, the graphic downgrade, etc...

But the good thing is that gaming isn't dead. Crowdfunding and indie development still exist. As long as niches exist, good games can still be made.

They're subject to change. Don't place any weight on that at all.

Thats the point of those systems. For story. Do you not understand english? Are you so fucking stupid? The game is built so that the story aspect is just as important as gameplay. Thats why you initiate conversations and fish for lore and get to know different characters. Thats why theres an entire faction system and an interrelated 12 minute ending. Thats why theres a story to almost every location you find. Like every fucking vault has some fucked up history to it. The location is even designed around it. Thats the point you mong.

>The most satisfying thing that can be achieved is to find a rare as fuck weapon and blow stuff up with it

Holy shit youre one of the stupidest people Ive had the displeasure of speaking with. Especially with the way you praise the craptacular gameplay fallout has these days.

Fuck, Im done. /v/ is lost to underage millenials.

No fuckstain, RPGs were called RPGs because they used mechanics borrowed from tabletop games. In the west they slowly grew to adopt more elements of these tabletop games until CRPGs died off. In Japan they evolved into games where you held the X button to get a story.

Guys Im scared. People are actually defending FO4. Millenials are trying to redefine what an rpg is to excuse their shit taste.

W-whats happening? Is /v/ dying?

>It will be a financial success.
>It will be a community success

It will succeed in all the important aspects, how does this make you feel /v/? That your opinions are worthless in the grand scheme as you all can do nothing to stop Fallout 4?

>>315313898

Don't think fallout 4 is dumbed down too much.Look at the Y options in the dialog shown. The are always questions, meaning the Y button opens up more dialog options.

A= Postive/agree statments
B: Negative disagree statments
X: Neutral statments/ back out
Y: requests more information possible opens up more dialog.

The problem, besides it DEFINITELY being dumbed down, is that you don't know what your character is going to say. They could have easily implemented Deus Ex HR's dialogue wheel, but they didn't.
