I just sigh when I think back to Todd Howard sitting there, talking about how you'd get to know your character BEFORE the war, so you'd feel much closer to him/her and the family, and it would resonate more, and then you start playing the game and the whole pre-war stuff is literally over in five minutes.

I wonder if a single FO4 player has actually gone "Oh no, I have to find my kid!"

They should just take a page from the modders' playbook and give you a "choose your own start" deal. Do you want to be a raider? A mayor? A BoS guy? And just go from there.

eh, I knew the journey would be HUNDREDS of hours, so I wasn't in a hurry to find the kid. It will happen, and I have my theories on who he is, but yet the timeline doesn't seem to match up on everything......oh well. I will have a hell of a fun time in my explorations to find said family member.....

I don't know why Bethesda insists on some personal plot point as though anyone cares. The fantasy of the post-apocalypse is not to go finding your family members. The fantasy is to get away from your previous life. To start over. Cast off shackles. Making us go looking for family members is antithetical to the post-apocalypse. We should just be wanderers in this new world. That doesn't mean you can't have a strong plot, and it doesn't mean you can't form bonds with characters. But it does mean you shouldn't drag those elements with you from the old world. The entire point of the genre is to start afresh.

It doesn't help when the baby looked like a turd wrapped in a blanket.

I went through the main campaign. Finished it at level 41 and I'm replaying it because going through with the Brotherhood really made me feel like an asshole. lol

They took a chance with that plot, for sure. FO3 is more relate-able, everyone has a dad, but if you're not a parent IRL it's hard[er] to care about a virtual baby.

I haven't quite finished the game yet on my first playthrough, but I started another guy with whom I'm being more sneaky-sneak than barging in with power armor... Already found several meaty quests I missed the first time, even when the map had been about 75% explored. Fantastic game.

When games try to make you feel connections through familial ties, it never works. In real-life, familial bonding is established through years of interactions and experience. Telling me some random person is related to me doesn't establish any kind of bond, especially when my interactions with said people are extremely limited (like with the dad in FO3). I haven't beaten the main questline in FO4 but I'm guessing it follows suit.

I liked FNV's approach a lot better. No arbitrarily imposed relationships. Just curiosity as to who tried to kill you and why.

For what it's worth, the writing in FO4 definitely seems improved over FO3. I haven't encountered anything facepalm-worthy yet and there was plenty of that in FO3. So far, everything seems believable and coherent. No towns built around nukes leaking radiation, no caves filled with kids that somehow survived for 200 years by eating fungus, no slaver towns run by guys dressed like pimps, etc.

Well, perhaps, but that's different. It's a more grown-up child with a personality in Outlaws, not a little sack of potatoes in a blanket.

I dunno, remember Outlaws? You're the Marshall looking for your daughter. That was a strong motivator.

Amen!

I'm from the "Commonwealth" area so it's about exploring and seeing if I find any landmarks that I have actually been to.

Same. The beginning of the game fails to connect the player to the main 'finding son' quest. I'm sure many players who want a story to connect with will put the game down early. That said, it is a fun open world P.A. game.

Perpetual debt is slavery.
