Why Fallout 76 Worries Me

Image
Let's be honest, we were all shitting our pants when we heard a new fallout game was coming. We started imagining ourselves lost in a new wasteland murdering fellow travelers and destroying settlements. It felt like we were going to end the year with a huge singleplayer game.

E3 came and everyone's jaw dropped. Who imagined fallout being an online-only experience??!!

There's a huge backlash around this game. Many gamers are criticizing the game for simply not being fallout, while others are saying that trolls and griefers are going to be the end of the game. No one wants to see a bunch of trolls nuke their settlement, do they now?

The decision to not include Fallout 76 on steam, and removing human NPCs completely is only making the game's situation worse.

I'm not here to whine about how this game is bad, or that it shouldn't exist, or that it will destroy the Fallout franchise. I'm here to whine about another thing, something that has worried me ever since…
