Yea same, wasnt till sometime ago where I played Fallout on consoles and without mods, then got a laptop that was able to run most of them. Mostly some bug fixes, weapons, armor, quests. I played Fallout 4 first on Xbox One before getting it on PC so I could wait for the Modding community to catch up. Then the whole Creation Club came and fucked things up. Since with every update, it would screw up the script extender and you'd have to wait for an update for that and the mods you used. Made me give up on Fallout 4 for a while.
The Script Extender constantly went out of date since the days of Oblivion. Like every update.
I have always had issues with modding games, for some reason I was unable to properly mod Skyrim and fallout new Vegas, even tho everywhere it was always despicted as "super easy, retard proof" I wouldn't.ever manage to make them work
Imho, fallout 4 took a bad turn on the saga, originally it was meant to be a turn based RPG with heavy story elements, such elements were.kept on the phase of Fallout 3, where they opted for a more dynamic combat mechanics, it was nice and likeable, the core elements of a fallout game.which were. it's lore and rich environments (though obviously dead due to radiation) to explore were still there.
Then there comes fallout 4, honestly they were too greedy with the game, focusing on what worked, making the graphics neater (what everyone wanted) and having a consistent story would have easily made it game.of the year, but nope, too hard to do mate
I mean like the Updates to the creation club messes with script extender for fallout 4.
You could look up Gophervids on Youtube, he has a solid modding guide for Fallout 3 & New Vegas and Skyrim. I always follow his vids everytime I mod any of my games
Will do once I re purchase Skyrim on PC, tho I honestly don't plan to play it much, maaaaaybe complete the story once and that's it, new Vegas it's probably my favorite and one of the most completed games I've played, fallout 3 was good but for a game with such a huge map, it seemed to be awfully boring at times, lots of areas were just empty and didn't really mattered much if they existed or not, imho, new Vegas partially does this too, but it isn't on the same.level at all. I'm yet to complete the achievements on it :) I'm missing the GRA and a few difficult ones on the casino , probs less than 12 to have full game completed
The Courier destroys all the other Fallout protagonists
One thing I always wished I had more of in the more recent Fallout games was more towns and people to interact with. I agree, there were a lot of empty areas.
But isn't that the point of a post apocalyptic world? I see your point nonetheless. In Fallout 3 most settlements were mostly kept in the bottom south while the north was more barren. I found myself immersed by taking a sort of expedition when going north in the Capital Wasteland. Idk thats just me though.
