    It seems like Bethesda is all "ideas" guys but no real directors or writers. Their Fallout games play more like tech demos showing off all these neat features they coded and lashing them together with a bare-bones excuse plot, compared to like New Vegas where the plotting is generally pretty tight and everything all ties together.

    Speaking of...

    More or less. The stories they made for Fallout 3 and 4 are pretty much the same in "Find missing family member". They really could of made it more grey for 4 in the factions you fight for but Institute always seemed to just lie with being the bad guys while the Railroad are purely good guys. The very least, 4 was a good time sink even though dialogue was butchered to being a Mass Effect clone.

    I have only played the Bethesda Fallouts so I can't speak for 1 & 2 but The ones I have played New Vegas, Fallout 4, Fallout 3, are all great. (I listed them in order of my favorite to least favorite). The only problem I had with New Vegas was it set a direction on the map it forced you to follow with the main quest. After that it was great, but the real great content was in the DLC. New Vegas had some of the better expansions Bethesda has ever put out. Fallout 3 was really set the standard for these games and while I love it, I couldn't figure out where I needed to go in the story at some points. This lead to me just wandering around and finding random quests, and I actually found that almost more enjoyable. While the ending of the story is fun and climactic, nothing in the beginning really hooked me other than your dad is out there doing something. Fallout 4 did 3's story but reversed and IMO better. The dialogue choices, while not great, displayed the emotion my character was feeling in the game well enough for me to really get into the role playing part of it more.
    Like when you kill Kellogg I enjoyed seeing my character react with his anger and enjoyed the satisfaction of helping my character achieve justice for his wife's death. Things like that were a nice touch and I hope we'll see more of in the future.
    The factions are more than just black and white some people paint them as. I found each had their good points and you can really be sold any of them. None of them are evil at the core but they all want what's best for humanity and just have different way of going about it. It's just easier to hate specific factions more when certain companions are there. But I digress, I think they are all great games and people are too nit picky about each entry anyway. As long as I'm having fun I usually don't sweat the small details, especially in a Bethesda game.

    I've been playing Fallout Shelter, that freemium game where you raise your own vault dwellers, and build and expand your vault to be a productive community.

    I've experimented with many different ways to get my dwellers to incestuously mate with one another. It appears that first-generation incest is not allowed, as the system checks if the two dwellers had the same parent. I've successfully mated aunts/uncles with nephews/nieces, and grandparents with grandchildren. It gets pretty kinky.

    I also try to role-play and ensure my vault is an all-American, white family kind of place. All of the darkies get sent to the front lines for vault defense (when raiders or deathclaws infiltrate) or I send them out on suicide wasteland explorations with only one RadAway and no stimpacks, typically out of spite, because my Vault Overseer character is racist as fuck.

    I love the Fallout series, I've played all of the main games (but only beat 3 and New Vegas so far) though I have yet to try Tactics or the non-canon Brotherhood of Steel.

    I sided with the railroad out of agreeing with their ideology. my suggestion is go with the faction you agree with the most

    You know with the whole console mods thing you can basically install console commands onto your pipboy. At least you could, I know Bethesda has been screwy with the whole situation and I haven't been paying close attention.
