When I watched the announcement that Fallout 76 was going to be a MMO, I was not happy.
This is the 2nd time Bethesda has taken a game series that I fell in love with, and tried to make it a online game. The first being The Elder Scrolls
When I first saw the teaser, I thought: "Oh, cool. So they are putting out another Fallout, like they did with New Vegas, which turned out to be
pretty darn good! Can't wait!"
Then the announcement that it was going to be a MMO, where you are forced pretty much to deal with other people.
No thanks. I already do that with Eve Online. Several other people that I know who also love Fallout felt the same way.
I wouldn't mind stuff like this so much, except that it seems that while the rest of us that tend to like solo play more, end up waiting a very long
time or taking a back seat for other stuff to come out.
Skyrim came bout back in 2011.......and it's going to be how long before we see another PVE Elder Scrolls game?
Fallout 4 came out in 2015, so it's only been about 3 years, but to have your hopes raised thinking they were about to put out a "in between" game,
like they did with New Vegas, only to find out it's going to be a MMO that's pretty much PvP paradise.......blah.
Still no announcement about the space based game they have been working on as far as possible release goes: 2019? 2020?.....2021???
I'm a firm believer in the old saying of: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." and that's exactly what Bethesda has done. Most stuff they make ends up
being gold. In a world where you already have a lot of people who just want to log on and kill each other, Bethesda catered to those who would rather
PvE, with beautiful environments, rich story lines and indepth NPC characters.
Now it seems they are trying too hard to cash in on the MMO world for the sake of $$$, and to hell with their loyal fan base of solo players.
