      I mean, Fallout 1 and 2 were masterpieces, as was New Vegas, and a fair number of people quite enjoyed 3 and 4. It's not exactly hard to do the bare minimum with merch and your games. At this point, that sounds about right-- purposeful sabotage.

      Honestly a rushed mess made by the b team, what did they expect haha. I mean fallout 3 and 4 are pretty barren but with mods they can be totally awesome, but this was just a joke
      I guess compared to this dark souls 2 isn't thaaat bad as another rushed game by the rookie devs but at least they didn't pull any crap like that
      It's still super janky and crap compared to all the real Miyazaki led games

      @Ethan H not even a 2.5% refund you could get a burger with, it was a gift card... The duffle kerfuffle was a brutal triple gut punch for a singular frivolous purchase you were probably on the fence about. You fall victim to false advertising, receive a laughable refund you are obligated to spend in the shitty game you paid a premium for, and the final cherry on top... You are doxxed for filling out the form to receive the product you rightfully paid for... I wonder how that class action lawsuit is developing

    Things that weren’t mentioned in this video, because either Internet Historian missed them or because they happened after this video came out.
    - Todd’s incredible idea to have no NPCs and acting like that was a major innovation.
    - The loot-eating storage boxes.
    - Thousands of helmets from the Power Armor Edition had to be recalled because they didn’t have silica pouches and, as a result, contained dangerous levels of mold in it that would cause people to get physically ill from it. Multiple Game Stops were getting, “refurbished,” helmets months after launch.
    - The game went live so early, stores like Game Stop ended up having to break street date when it was supposed to be a true midnight launch.
    - The Fallout 1st $100 paid-subscription to the game that was even worse and more broken than the ordinary subscription.
    - During a brief period of time there was a glitch/exploit where it was actually possible to spawn in items from a completely different game.
    - It’s possible to use an exploit where you can take another player’s entire inventory.
    - They never unbanned the players who just played the game fairly as intended that the game was meant to be played as, who just played the game to get good gear. In fact Bethesda actually told them, “Sorry, once you’re banned, we can’t do anything about it. Looks like you’re just going to have to make a new account and start over.” There was actually a guy who paid a hacker to get his account unsuspended and get all of his stuff back because of this. Guess what? It actually worked! The guy successfully managed to get his account and all of his stuff back, thanks to him. Here’s the real kicker, though. The hacker even said that it was, “surprisingly easy”. Yeah, let that sink in.
    If I’ve missed anything, feel free to reply to me, so I can expand this list.

    76 is a prime example of people showing Bethesda that they're willing to eat shit covered in sprinkles and willing to have seconds if offered a bit more sprinkles to put on the turds they're gladly eating. Point being those aren't real fans, because real fans would look at what they love and question why it's being fucked up.

    You should do a history of the Elder scrolls mess during the making of Morrowind. It was over budget and daddy Robby Trump saved the day. Not to mention the history of the developers, including how one of the developers wrote the lore for Morrowind binged on drugs - which somehow ended up making the greatest staples of the Elder Scrolls lore. This would be fucking sublime.

    I only started playing this game about a year ago, and I really enjoyed my time with it. By that time it wasn’t any more buggy than any other Bethesda game, and there was plenty to do. Was it the sequel I wanted to Fallout 4? No. But it was nonetheless really fun to me. There’s a lot of exceptional storytelling and lore-building. Give it a try! The game’s very much not the same game it was at launch; you might be surprised :)

      ​Stop trying to defend Cybertrash. The game was a complete and total distaster. So many people expected the game to put all other RPG titles to shame, to be the true "next-gen" experience, made by the "reputable" company CDPR. That might have been true, if the game released on the fucking dreamcast. CDPR lied to the consumers, refused to allow reviewers to show their own footage, literally BRIBED said reviewers to give the game a perfect score, and after all the backlash from such a disgraceful launch of a game so unfinished and buggy it might as well have been in alpha stage, they uploaded a half-assed apology video to youtube where some condescending jackass just went in circles for five minutes about how it was the consumer's fault that the game failed.
      Cyberpunk and CDPR deserve no mercy for the shit they pulled, and we as gamers need to remember the past or else it can and will repeat itself.
