    Unless there is more to it, I think it's because it appears to be set completely within the city limits so it loses the remoteness of travelling through a sparesly populated wasteland and finding the odd settlement where people are struggling to get by making houses out of whatever they can find lying around. Cities definately have their place in the Fallout world but like the wastelands they should be sparesly populated and not sole focus. There should be more to do besides it.

    The best times I've had in the Fallout world has been out in the wasteland feeling a real sense of being alone, scrounging through the odd burnt out/falling apart building for supplies, finding clues to the lives of their former owners and wondering what happened to them. Loved Fallout: New Vegas for this as the desert setting was perfect for me and New Vegas, while it was the main storyline, was almost like it was just another rather large outpost in an otherwise vast wasteland.

    Still one of my all time favourite games. Never gets old.

    I have Backpacks of the Commonwealth, it's a fantastic mod.

    it's a shame that nexus seems hell bent on destroying the entire modding sphere for it.
    and more modders pulling out every day, some aren't uploading else where and mods are being lost.
    it's heart breaking.

    Not sure if any of you are still playing Fallout 76, but on Xbox and PC, if you have Gamepass, this month you can receive one month's worth of Fallout 1st as a reward.

    You'll need to install the actual Xbox app on PC and the game itself via the Xbox app and click on your Account > Rewards tab to find the code to claim that month's worth of Fallout 1st. Handy if you want to fill up your scrap box full of junk, get 1,650 additional Atoms, some nice cosmetics and camp skins and your own private world.

    Though if you don't want to keep it and get automatically charged after that month, turn off recurring billing.

    Xbox Gamepass for PC is only $1 for the first month for new users as well, worth it them even just for this :lol:
