I still play Fallout 4 because I think its still a great Fallout game. I really do like the story. I actually think it is much better than FO3's story, the companions are the second best in the series right next to FNV and FO3 having the worst, the gunplay is SO much better than  FO3 and FNV, The DLC that does not just add settlement building(Far Harbor, Automatron, Nuka World) I love, the atmosphere and exploring is probably the best in the series while FO3 was the second best, and mods. I still think Fallout 4 is a great Fallout game that I will keep on playing for the years to come. Yes, it was a bit disappointing, some of the changes they made to make it more accessible to the mainstream audience didn't need to happen(Removing a lot of RPG elements, dumbed down leveling system, dumbed down conversation system), and some of the marketing decisions they made with the DLC was pretty bad(season pass), but overall, I still love Fallout 4 for a lot of things it done right and some of the things they added. I still think FNV is the best out of the newer Fallout games because it is my favorite in the franchise, but I still think Fallout 4 is a great Fallout game. I do wholeheartedly understand why some people(especially hardcore Fallout fans) do not like the game. There are quite a few reasons not to like it, but the things that they did right overcame a lot of the things they did wrong in my opinion. I just hope that the next Fallout does a much better job balancing things so that hardcore Fallout fans and newcomers will both enjoy it.

Hmm, not much of a fan of the voiced protagonist or the part where you're MARRIED AND HAVE A FUCKING KID...ahem, excuse me, but the thing that keeps me coming back to playing it was how I wanted to rule over the Commonwealth underground in the institute. When I'm the leader, I fired Justin Ayo, Synths deserve to be free, my point is that whenever I play, I want to help the commonwealth.

Nothing, since I am more a fan of RPG's and not just a sandbox game where the protagonist is basically a demi-god.

Left Fallout 4 (and all video games) for almost 9 months, came back and have been having a blast with newest playthrough because of survival mode, some hardcore gameplay mods, camping mod, and spawn mod.

Settlement building. It's fairly cathartic and is a blast when inebriated. Not too heavily invested in the story itself.

I haven't played it for some months but will perhaps come back to it in a year's time. I played about 100 hours. Frankly, I really like the ambient sounds, I like that the city is big enough to explore. I have not been to every inch of the map and look forward to wandering around in the future. Frankly, though, I was also disappointed in the game. Fun gameplay but so many missed opportunities to tell the story of a 'Fallout.' I thought they hit a grandslam with the ambiant sounds and atmosphere though.

Going back through on survival mode and mostly avoiding the main quest and just trying to explore every building I can. Hoping for the perfect mod that will take me on a journey all over the map.

Because it's a ''lego set'', I may not like what Bethesda built with it entirely but like a ''lego set'' there are lots of little nobs and things we can build upon and build we have from quest mods to gun mods to nude mods its there and still in its infancy at that , A few years from now will be a very intresting sight to see in the F4 modding community to see what it has built with their understanding of the ''lego set''.

Now does this overall potential cover for the game's obvious short comings no it wont and never will but I do Know one day may not be tomorrow or the day after or even the month after but I will return to the commonwealth .
I WILL RETURN after the main quest is redone/removed Smile

But then again what do I know I'm just a Platypus

Used to be the exploration, general gunplay, settlement building, and of course mods. But these days more just screenshotting and mods. The bugs and patches breaking mods kinda kept me away for a while. Nukaworld did bring me back for a little bit though.

I've gone through it twice now,once on Ps4 and once on PC fully modded out.It being my first real fallout game.(I tried playing new Vegas on PS3 a couple of years ago but only put a couple of hours into it due to the constant crashes)I really liked it.
The story was nothing special and the Rpg elements were severely dumbed down,but the sense of exploration and gun play were things I really liked.
It was just a fun game.And because I didn't really sink my teeth into new Vegas before playing Fallout 4 I had no idea what a step back it was from that game.But still I put over 200 hours into it easily.
And the mods were just icing on the cake.

Honestly all the mods that overhaul weapons and armor. Things like Modern Firearms which adds a ton of mil spec guns which for a gun nut like me makes me very happy and it makes me want to experience the game again having more options and customization. Also mods that add things that should have been in the game to begin with make it much more fun.

Mostly mods. I enjoyed my first playthrough and I'm just starting another, but I'm kinda bummed out that I won't have access to all the end-game mods I had last playthrough. Also, I need to get through all the DLC.

I keep coming back because of the settlement mode and the mods. The settlement mode imo is fun because of all the different ways you can design and build up your towns. It also gives you various places to store all your gear and call home.

Right now The Vault DLC, when I first started playing it I was like mehh now I love it especially with all the mods, now I use vault 88 as my main base, companion hub and all the characters I like the most and I think that they deserve a place in my ark ( the safest place in commonwealth, until ferrals start popping up hahha)
But firstly pure enjoyment love the game even tho previous ones are better in a way, bugs, piss poor optimization and corrupted files are keeping me away form FO3 and NV, thinking about starting 1, 2, tactics and maybe even brotherhood of steel the one that no one likes, I love it not my favorite but pretty fun when you get pissed up and stoned and have little split screen party, stealing each others sh**t hahaha never gets old in split screen games Very Happy

What keeps me coming back? That is a good question considering I have 1700+ hours in game so far and I am still going back for more. I suppose for me its the freedom - I can be whoever I want in-game, and play however I want (within reason). I've played a basic good person, out to help as many as possible (minutemen and railroad), I've played a militant racist (brotherhood), I've played cowboy style (revolvers and lever-action rifles!), and once I even did a play through as my own version of a post-apocalyptic Harley Quinn (lots of Harley mods available, which was great, and then Nuka-World came out in the middle of that character, which was perfect timing).

So ... what keeps me coming back is the freedom to be whoever I want to be in a world I find interesting to explore. That's pretty much it.

unlike New Vegas and to a lesser extent Fallout 3 i don't really have that urge to play Fallout 4 again
that's not to say i wont play it again but i don't see it being any time soon Neutral

I'm mainly waiting for some cool mods to come out and don't want to be underlevel when they come out.

I am playing FO4 along with Skyrim, guess why, because of mods and freedom. When i play a game, i play it to have a good time. If i am happy while playing, than it is worthy.
Fallout 4 may differ a lot from the other Fallouts, and i never finished any of them (3, NV and 4), so my opinions on games are only if it is fun to play or not.

Fallout 3 is the one i like most for wandering. I just LOVE DC wasteland. Not much else to say.
New Vegas... i don't know, i didn't like it so much. It is a great game, i have some good memories about it, but i just can't say that it is worse or better, it just wasn't that fun.
Fallout 4 is the last one, so everything is improved. What i dislike i use mods to change. And i keep playing, because i like the protagonist voice, i like how companions are more alive and participate in quests giving their opinion, i like to explore and how Beth always add that note or terminal about something or someone, and you feel alive in the world.
I like exploring, i like going where i can but MOSTLY i love roleplaying. When i enter the game, it is not me, Luis, playing Fallout 4. It is Rebecca, who is searching for her son, who now have freedom after a not so happy mariage, who can do whatever she wants to, and now trusts more a synth than a human because she knows how vile a man can be.
So, i keep comming back to FO4 to feel alive, as a different person. My life, the real one, is not what i could call... interesting. And i do not even like settlements, all the time is spent walking (not only because of Survival, i hate Fast Travel) hahaha

I've always loved Elder Scrolls and the Fallout series. I also love the Sims. So when FO4 made it possible to build in the settlements, I was very excited. I have longed for FO4 ever since I finished FONV. I mainly play to build, now that I finished the game. I can spend hours building my settlements. Mods also keep me coming back to play. I'm a mod-aholic for sure- in every game I play. Mod it till it breaks is my motto, haha. I do miss things from the other Fallouts, but I still love FO4. I can't wait until the modding scene gets to where Skyrim is.
