Fallout 76 has been the topic of controversy as of late in the gaming industry. It’s Fallout 4 (itself a mediocre RPG, but quite a good shooter) with a coat of uninspired MMO paint. The incredibly underwhelming nature of the game was reflected in reviews, by both critics and players alike.
The game’s bad reception is not only evident by the vocal side of the community but also by people’s wallets as sales were, unfortunately for Bethesda, quite low.
On Amazon, the game is now being sold for £40 which I’d argue is still not worth it.
Despite Fallout being a loved franchise, the name alone wasn’t enough to sell people on the idea of Bethesda’s take on popular games like Unturned, Rust or 7 Days to Die. Some people have even theorised that Bethesda tactically released Fallout 76 near Black Friday.
On Amazon, the game is now being sold for £40 which I’d argue is still not worth it. Fallout 76 is riddled with bugs and fundamental design flaws, something that will require No Man’s Sky-level work to overhaul and fix. At this point, a price drop is entirely understandable though players who purchased it at full price, or even pre-ordered, are suitably aggrieved.
