Fallout 4 and Fallout: New Vegas

Though it gets very lonely I do enjoy the deep storylines.
I will go down with this ship.  I won't put my hands up in surrender.  There will be no white flag above my door.  I'm in love, and always will be.  Dido

Fallout 4 and Fallout: New Vegas

Though it gets very lonely I do enjoy the deep storylines.

I've often wondered why the proposed Fallout MMORPG's have always fallen through in the end. Is Fallout 4 worth it? I should pick New Vegas back up one of these days and finish it to the end at least once.

If you like the Fallout series, check out the current Humble Bundle Unity bundle - The "medium" support level includes Wasteland 2, which in turn includes a copy of Wasteland. The original Fallout and Fallout 2 are sort of "spiritual successors" (heh) of Wasteland. A lot of the features of Fallout that made it unique at the time were inspired by Wasteland.

Isn't Fallout 76 supposed to be MMO-ish?

Anyway, my main problem with other games is that, sooner or later, they all remind me of CoH.  I keep wanting to make their protagonist (or villain!) as a CoH character.  I enjoy deciding what AT and Powersets they'd have, and building the entire character.  And then I feel sad that I can't actually play the character I'm creating in my head.

So Hessonite as a Broadsword/Willpower Brute or Faith Seed as an Illusion/Poison (or maybe Illusion/Nature) Controller are fun to come up with until I remember they'll never exist beyond maybe a costume.

And I go right back to missing CoH.

Well given there is nothing that comes close to COH/X as a replacement ...
Pretty much a variety of zombie killing games. I did Dead Island several times through. Dying light one time through and after the stupid  dance dance revolution boss battle it became boring. I still play Left 4 Dead 2. That game has a lot of user-created content combined with the fact the the spawning of zombies and weapons is randomish ... it never feels too old. That is something I think a LOT of games miss. Too many games, once you go through the same missions you memorize the beats and becomes less fun. City of Heroes added variety at least by mixing up maps at least and of course a crap load of different mission types, let alone user created content. City of Titans definitely needs to have some user created content options.

I've tried a few MMO's since NCSoft pulled the rug from under our feet but nothing's come close.
GW2 was pretty good but I grew bored and really ticked off at all the achievements hidden behind jumping games.
ESO was nice and I lasted over a year there before, once again, getting bored. I'm going to give ESO another try actually, downloading the client now.
BDO looks beautiful and has an amazing character creator but forced PvP at higher levels plus *the grind* put me off.
I tried a few other very forgettable ones and er... forgot them...

At the moment I'm not playing any MMO. I log into Conan Exiles every so often to check that my base is still standing and that my thralls haven't had a party in my absence and eaten my pets. I look at FFXIV videos on youtube every now and then and wonder if I should try it out but I'm getting a bit jaded with what passes for MMO's these days and since you have to buy the game *and* pay a subscription I'm not too sure about it. I'm hoping that Ship of Heroes will fill the void.

Star Trek Online = Main game, Champions Online = Backup game, Neverwinter = Next Game.

I'm still Crypticsized. They push all my buttons.

OK I'm loitering..

This all sounds good. I haven't played the newer stuff but I checked it out when I was hunting for new games awhile back. The original Wasteland was pretty cool for its time. We sold it where I worked at the time when it was new : ). The last time I played it was before I 'found' Champions Online not long after what happened to CoH and it's *still* fun.

The way more modern spinoffs looked promising when I checked them out. The original Wasteland, is, of course, pretty darn old as-is its interface.

You can carbon copy the above comments for X-Com, too.

Another ancient game that holds up great, today - but... unfortunately has no updated version... is.. Command HQ. I used to multiplay that all the time with a friend from the Wasteland job. Its mouse interface is well done enough that it holds up surprisingly well for its age. Man, that would be a great game for someone to update. Simple to learn but plenty going on. Kinda like a realtime version of RISK with more strategy/options.

I'm kicking myself over missing the Overwatch sale on PS4. I've always said that if it dropped to $20, I'd get it in a heartbeat.  Well, it dropped to $20, but it was near the end of the month when finances were a little tight, so I was waiting for payday, and the sale ended the day before payday (even though the sale on the PC version lasted another two days).

So I've been playing Paladins.

Warframe has been my go to online game as of late. Some decent customization, varies frames with different powersets, everything is color-able, including powers. It is a game that has been slowing evolving from folks who had worked on unreal engine in the past. Load out of weapons, each with different effects to keep things fresh. Primary weapon, secondary weapon, melee weapon.. so yah, can just slice and dice your way through things.  Or you can ninja it up, try to stealth things.  Variety of mission sets.  Started to put in some open world missions.  It is a bit more lobby game oriented, but it is starting to become something more.  Closer to earlier visions of the game every day.  It has given me value for my time and money I have put into it.

Is Warframe an ARPG like Diablo or Guild Wars (the original Guild Wars)? I've never tried it, but I've got some enticement type bonus things in my Twitch account for it.
