At first, I was a bit mad that they removed skills, or simplified things even further, but the more I learn about it, the more I'm OK with it. I just hope it's not all just +5% gun damage... I hope it still supports proper customization and specialization and forces you to make tough choices. It was a bit weird that your SPECIAL stats would affect your skills. And they'd have to add dialogue options for skills, but also for stats, which was weird too. Maybe with this more focused system, they can improve the ways your stats affect the world... But most of all, this is Bethesda, so I guess I gotta trust them.
