I have just revisited the game in 2019 and it still holds up. There are some glitches and the follower AI still can be annoying but the game is still a blast to play and offers a lot even in 2019. The biggest gripe I have with the game is the simplified dialogue system. The previous Fallout entries gave much better dialog options, whereas Fallout 4 gives you 4 options in most scenarios, agree, disagree, sarcastically agree and ask a question based off the subject of the last interaction. The absence of a karma system is a huge miss, it removes a lot of moral complexity that was present in previous games. The game's looks and gameplay is far superior to previous entires in the series, aiming with weapons is now possible so relying solely on VATS is no longer necessary. The settlement building is much better with the DLC included in the GOTY edition. The DLC is all strong and interesting enough to get me back to sinking hours into this game. All of the protagonists are likeable enough if not a bit repetitive. All the followers want to help the people of the wasteland, they offer no real contradictory views that could cause issues with other followers. The followers are all worth getting to know to gain their perks and immerse yourself in the world. Fallout 4 is still a very immersive game and given the fact that the game is commonly on sale, it makes it all the more worth it. Expand

But next time Bethesda, please don't give us download codes, give us a disc that contains the complete version of the game like you did with Skyrim: Legendary Edition or Fallout 3: GOTY Edition. This is bad trend that many companies are unfortunately using and it sucks. Destiny: The Collection had download codes and that pissed me off, The Crew: Ultimate edition had download codes and the list goes on. Why do companies do this? Expand

    | am glad they changed the format of Fallout even if it took a while to get into.

It is more Borderlands action packed shooter than a ARPG with shooting mechanics. Played the game back to back with the female/male characters. I enjoyed all of the shooting, looting, crafting and exploring. I had a lot of fun with the upgradeable power armors and the weapons.

    The "base game" settlement building side was a bit basic and simplified. How Junk items are broken down into way lighter core components is limited to settlements only. So this can lead to a grindy chore if wanting to lighten the Power Armour repair resource load on the go. Settlers can be used as mules to transport the junk, but only between settlements and not in the field. The junk sorting process is also a grind when using settlers as mules. Hundreds of junk items, but no way to group them by core components.

    Short story I picked up the GOTY edition on a retail sale, because it worked out cheaper than buying all the DLC separately digitally for the base game that I already have beaten twice.. This is the best version of the game for sure. The additional add-on settlement content alone gets rid of the of the logistic head ache of getting round commune dormitory type settlements.

    I have a lot of fun replaying this game and I have passed my third replay, but this game runs like total crap in the large downtown Boston area ( and other areas). I have even used in-store PSN F04 mods to try and improve performance, but to little avail. I am really struggling to replay it now due to overdosing on the crappy performance issues for the umpteenth time.

    A worthless version with code that writes on a simple piece of paper. GOTY edition is never given with code. People who will take it areA worthless version with code that writes on a simple piece of paper. GOTY edition is never given with code. People who will take it are collectors. And you have contaminated the GOTY name. Expand
