Ok guys we have all read or watched what the world thinks of Fallout 76, but I want to hear from my trusted Gunslingers that are in the shit, playing the game. Please let us know how you feel about the game. I am a fan of the previous games, but didn't jump on this one because of the bad press. I would love to hear feedback.

I have been playing it mostly with my son and some solo, it has been fun but I miss the NPC's from Fallout 4 and the interaction as well as trying to get them to like you. I will state that Fallout 4 is my first and only experience with the Fallout universe and I really enjoyed that one. This one is similar in many ways, but so far the story is just not grabbing me and keeping me coming back on a nightly basis. If someone wants to play BFV it is not as difficult a choice.

Currently, I am probably about 10-15 hours in and don't feel like I am too far along with the story, or if I am, I am not really too interested in it. Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying the game and have not had any issues with other players killing me and taking my crap (which was a major concern going in), but I do have a major issue with my carrying capacity and stash storage capacity. Every place that I go I am overloaded within minutes and then struggling to find someplace to drop off or scrap all my stuff.

At this point, my plan is to work through the story and side missions that come up as I play, but I don't really see much point in the nuke codes and those high level areas. Maybe there will be a purpose, but at this time I am just hoping to make it through the story before any other games come out starting next month or I pick up RDR2 for Xmas.

Please keep in mind that I may be missing a lot in the game and don't take my review as gospel as there may be a lot more going on that either I have missed or just have not gotten to. I am enjoying the game but for me it is not up to the FO4 standard yet (Keep in mind though that many others hated FO4).

As an update to my post, the recent patch to Fallout 76 including the 50% increase to stash size is an extremely welcome addition. Hopefully this will change my feel for the game, but I am not sure. I will post an update after I have had some time to play after this patch.
