Wouldn't it be nice to have some different body types? More unique looking characters like Gizmo. More people with amputated limbs and a suitably cool backstory, more people who look on the verge of starvation, people with severe scars etc etc
The characters lack a unique flavour to them, I think that's why Nick from Fallout 4 is so cool even if he is still about the same shape as every other non Super Mutant character. He stands out the most by a huge margin.
Every Ghoul is just a regular person with a different skin, they don't look emaciated like they used to because they clearly all have to fit the same base character model.
Everyone also moves exactly the same too, even if a character is more on the round side they can still run around like an Olympic champion which makes what little variation there is between people feel even more homogenized, the only person I can think of with unique movements(in conversations at least) are Mama Murphy with her slouched posture.
Imagine you could have a companion with one arm? That would be pretty cool. You'd have to give them different weapons to use or if you gave them a rifle you'd have to accept they take much longer to reload and such. And of course you could add in a side quest to get them a prosthetic, you would think those are common in what's still quite an advanced post apocalypse. In FO4 Automaton would have been a great opportunity to upgrade a characters measly metal arm to a LASER ARM.
I thought Ingram in Fallout 4 was cool initially but then her being in Power Armour 24/7 completely mitigates any physical issues she has, at least from the players perspective.
I feel as though this is really quite a simple change that would improve the feel of modern Fallout a huge amount. Obviously people have a ton of problems with the games, from the lore, to the gameplay or missing parts of it but this is one thing that sticks out to me a lot. Physically every character just seems like a carbon copy of each other and that leaves only their outward personality to fill in who they are.
Whereas you look at another character like Gizmo and before he even talks you know he's a greedy, disgusting sleazeball, visually he's a product of the world around him and what he's taken advantage of in life. Fallout needs more unique looking individuals like that instead of every character feeling like a clone of one person with a randomized skin. Basically the only unique things about companion characters are their clothes so the second you change those they're back to being Factory Standard Human #132
