“It was a stellar moment finally emerging from the darkness and isolation that I’d been holed up in for so long. The beams of sunlight hit my face, and I raised my hand to shield myself from the sudden bright. I looked out to a vast open world, calling out to me, and I wondered what was out there, waiting for me.
Then my girlfriend asked me, “Have you really been playing ‘Fallout 4’ this whole time?”
That’s when it dawned on me: Bethesda Game Studios has done it again. This total absorption, the ability to keep my attention and neglect the real world for days on end – it’s the kind of thing I haven’t experienced since Bethesda’s last outings, “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” and “Fallout 3.” And with “Fallout 4” they have crafted yet another massive world filled with danger, unsavory characters, wonder, and intrigue that threatens to endlessly consume hours of my time. But to be honest, I couldn’t be happier to feed this ravenous beast. This game is a true gem, offering a plethora of fun and proving itself as yet another classic staple in the series that reminds us that ‘War Never Changes’…” – Alex Suffolk
