    FO4 offers extensive weapon and armor customization,

Bells and whistles I don't use.

    damn cool power armor system,

I'll give you that.

    good graphics and updates to some gameplay systems.

DGAF. I don't play Fallout to ogle water textures.

The dream would be FO4 appearance with NV playstyle and writing. A bigger, more open world compared to the dinky little sandbox of the Commonwealth.

And I'll admit that when I say 'dinky' I really mean 'shallow.'

I cared about which faction I chose in NV. I made a POINT to embrace the NCR, even with it's faults, over the Legion. In FO4, I don't really give a damn who I'm fighting, or why.

I threw away a 20 hour save because I'd made some wrong choices near the start of NV. I gave up on FO4 when the main plot point resolved itself before the factions hashed things out.

In NV, it's an option to be a faction unto yourself. In FO4, I was more or less limited to amassing a buttload of power armor and pretending.

I actually really appreciate that Poweramor isn't everywhere in this game. Seemed like FO4 wouldn't let you visit three locations without tripping over a set.

It highlights the necessity of good writing in big, expansive games.

Where's the 'R' in RPG in FO4?
