Sorry if this seems disjointed and poorly written. It's 3:30am and I can't sleep (Insomnia's a bi*ch)
I started old school: I got the Fallout 1 + 2 bundle in 2001. Played them to death. This was a classic time for RPG's. I can't even begin to calculate how many hours I put into them, Diablo 2, Planescape: Torment, and Neverwinter Nights. Grades suffered. Sleep was deprived. I even thoroughly enjoyed Fallout Tactics – I know, dangerous territory there. Now when Bethesda took over and gave us Fallout 3 I was a bit hesitant, but after playing though the introduction and stepping out into the DC wasteland for the first time I was hooked. And then we had New Vegas, which – after it stopped crashing all the time – was a god damn work of art. I ended up losing all my old game CD's somehow, and my old PC eventually died.
Steam of course became a life saver. Steam says I have about 450 hours each on Fo3 and NV, but let's double that for the time on my old PC. Then we get to Fallout 4. I didn't enjoy it. I forced myself to slog though it all, even the DLC, hoping it would get better. Being ever optimistic. There were some bright moments (Far Harbor was nearly perfect) that gave me that old Fallout feeling, but it just wasn't the same. The bad writing, the terrible dialog, the nonsensical plot. It just wore me down.
I wasn't enthused about Fallout 76 after Fallout 4. But like an id*ot I gave them another chance. I don't know why. Why do people stay in abusive relationships?
I work a lot. I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to leisure activites anymore and every moment's valuable. I just can't do it anymore. Fallout 76 broke me. I'm done. It's everything bad from Fallout 4 and none of the good – what little there was. Grinding for materials to fix my weapons and armor, to fight a boss – you know which one – down to 10% health only to disconnect and then have to grind the materials again to fix my weapons and armor to fight the same boss only to disconnect at 50% this time. I'm just done.
