Awesome - time to start playing again :)
The fallout franchise is great

I see several Microsoft IPs being updated for free without needing a remake or remaster. Is it so difficult for other studios to follow this path?

Just imagine a GOW fan being able to play the first games with graphical and frame rate improvements on PS5? There are many riches buried in the old generations that just need an update and backwards compatibility, as they are perfect. When EA remastered Command and Coquer, I had to buy it pre-launch, and I realized that the story and mechanics remained original! I would be happier if EA gave a discount to those who already have all the games in the franchise, whether they are separate or on those DVDs that all the games came with, because I have everything. I hope for an update on Diablo 1, Road Rash and other iconic franchises from 1995 to 2005... I still remember my 120 MHz Pentium and my noisy modem that woke up the entire neighborhood... good years!

Aside from the Minutemen harassing you nonstop and the base building mechanics (modded that aspect) I really enjoyed Fallout 4! I'll have to hop back in to take a look.

It's funny that the CURRENT gen is still being called NEXT gen

59 more frames than it had on launch.

Ridiculous how quest fixes are needed 9 years later

I'm curious as to what quests were in need of fixing. I replayed the game a few times over the initial couple of years after release and I don't recall any quest breaking bugs. Unless they were minor.

Most quest bugs are rare or uncommon. You might see them or you might not, often depending on which choices you made. Some bugs occur as soon as the leave the Vault, though you might not encounter them until much later.

For example, the Cabot House questline has one bug where Imogen Cabot doesn't show up and another where Jack Cabot doesn't change locations, both of which will break the quest. I had to use console commands for both of these issues, though now the Unofficial Patch fixes at least the first one.

Well see it the other way around :) Some games got quests never fixed :) Getting some fixes 9 years after the release is quite amazing imo :D

The fixes should have come way earlier

Yah and ultimately every game coming out should be bug free... I mean...
9 years, 30 years, is still better than not at all. I do not see how this is "ridiculous" when a lot of games have bugs that are never fixed anyway. People always see the worse side of everything, why not be happy about it instead...

He isn't wrong to say that the worst issues should have been addressed way earlier and no one should ever be downvoted for saying that quest-breaking bugs should be fixed by the developer.

Bethesda is definitely guilty of leaving major problems for the community to repair and they should be called out for it. Fallout and Elder Scrolls are my favorite franchises in gaming but I'm not going to withhold criticism when it is deserved.

All those technical fixes and improvements don’t do anything for an already average/boring game.
This is a low effort BS PR sham because it’s a tie-in to the release of the TV series.

How does someone manage to contradict themselves by going from "all those technical fixes and improvements" to "this is a low effort?"

Man... Your days must be so fun. Looking at all your positive and constructive posts, you seem to really enjoy everything so much.

So the Skyrim next gen update was also because of a TV series tie-in? No, they said this was coming like a year ago, it was most likely delayed until now.

Fallout 4 is an excellent game in many aspects, people who haven't played Survival should try that and maybe download a few mods to enhance their experience.
