I am hearing people are actually loving Fallout 76 these days. Guess the games come along way and the TV series was the perfect marketing getting people into it.

A good show can do this, didn't the same happen with The Last of Us and most noteably, the impact Cyberpunk animation had on 2077?

The shows have to be good, and yes. Same for The Witcher

And Halo too right? Helps they are all games that are in gamers minds at the time too. Making a G-Police series might not have the same effect. :P

If the Show is good, it will get people curious of the G Police games
