Since it has been confirmed no dog and robot romance, I don't care for it anymore

I like in game romance, its fun. I hope that there will be some benefits in fallout 4 for romancing a companion, like a temporary charisma boost.

Not a fan of ingame romance or companions for that matter, but I like that there are extras in the game that I will never use.
All the parties are formed. All the gangs are born. The Beast has been chosen. Who is going to win in the end? We'll set fire to the shore. We'll set fire to the sea. We'll set fire to the meadow. We'll bring this whole world to it's knees.

I think it adds to the game so I don't mind to much but it definitely is different for Fallout cause its kind of like Mass Effect and so is the dialogue but I was also thinking about the wife if you play as the male protagonist and she's still alive or something it could get weird so kind of like the witcher but im pretty sure the wife is not still alive but I don't know.

I don't think it's pointless for people who want it, I just don't understand what anyone gains from it...
Maybe I just don't find pixels attractive :S

I really like how it was handled in the Mass Effect series. I loved Liara's personality in the 1st game, so that made it easy for my Shepard to fall for her. The changes to the character (her becoming hardened and cold after Shepard's death in ME2 intro) made it interesting to continue that romance in later games, and it was fun actually being able to tell her 'I love you' in ME3 (as Shepard).
Dragon Age does a similar job of it, despite the different player characters in each series. My first Origins warden fell for Leliana, my second for Alistair, and it was neat to see those relationships continue in Inquisition.
Bethesda looks to have taken a page or 2 out of Bioware's book for Fallout 4, I'm curious to see how those elements mesh with their open world stuff.

If you can infact romance every npc I can imagine them putting in a few generic quests to win over the affections of npc's in the game so you can move them into your custom home like in skyrim, i rekon there gunna have just a few more or less irrelevant characters that can be romanced,married and moved into your house like in skyrim, maybe they will do a whole dlc on house building and romance like hearthfire
I would however like to see a few funny quests like the 3some quest in fo3
There are two sides to every story, dont take the first side you hear as the truth

Im not the biggest fan when it comes to Beth game romances, always so bland, now if they added a romance that was on par with Mass effect in Fallout4 i would be happy, but skyrims romance felt like i just married some random NPC i dont care about who will easily pop out gold and food for me, thats all it really was... Mass effect gave you some one to think about personly, dont get me wrong its nice to have that optional romance side of it in skyrim, but id much rather it be like Mass effect when it comes to romances, makes you want to care about that character instead of doing it just to say ''anywho thats another side quest to knock off my to do list''

I dont mind the romance options, I just wish they were a bit more elaborate. Like Mass Effect or Dragon Age etc.
It needs to be engaging and my dynamic than say skyrim where you just slap an amulet on them and bam, hey let's get married because you've been my companion for X amount of time and have said nothing but "Sworn to carry your burdens" When i want to give you my stuff XD
Doesn't need to be EVERY marriage NPC with a nice little side romance quest, but a few would be nice to maybe win their trust or something along those lines.

I don't like the romance in a game but, i like the roromance of the witcher 2-3 and mass effect 3

I think It can be fresh but mostly I'm neutral to this stuff If It's done correctly It can workout but if It's filler It will be pure... you can guess

If done properly, sure. Just look at first Dragon Age and Inquisition, at the Mass Effect trilogy, Witcher 2/3.
What should never be done is what happened in Dragon Age 2....jesus...I still have nightmares after that one.

Looks like this time the character is an adult with a family so the romance may be more realistic. Like in ME and TW series. I mean if there is a Red Lucy somewhere ill be happy to give her some caps but having a serious relantionship would be different than just marry some girls and just collect money from time to time.

If done right, this could add a lot more depth to characters and their emotions and people with characters that may make use of this system. But I am not sure how it is going to tie in with the plot considering your character is married in the beginning of the game. More of how it works will most likely be in game, but we'll have to wait and see.

Romances would be a really interesting addition to Fallout 4. Of course, any addition to a such a game is a good addition(as long as they keep it close to the lore of the game). If Bethesda is adding romances, then I would hope for a lot of options for "maintaining" a relationship in-game just as much as making one; almost like real-world just not so complex. But, that's just me lol.

I feel that romances will be more of a plot device than an actual working mechanic. That's not to say that it can't be used as a great mechanic to change the way you play the game, but I believe that the whole premise of "romance", would be used as a quest point, say, get close to a target, befriend them, get info out of them, turns into full blown relationship, etc etc etc. Now, in regards to just the romancing of multiple genders or what not, I fully support that, kudos to bethesda for being public about it. It will certainly make a lot of people happy. However, I feel some people may get picky with the lore ("There wasn't much gay marriage or romances back in a 50's era yadda yadda yadda"), though personally I don't care about that sort of lore as long as the rest of the games story telling is up to scratch. That's what I think about this
