I can become more or less interested in a game based entirely on its story.
Some games, I knew instantly they were going to be games I would play over and over again. World of Warcraft actually had me within minutes of my then-girlfriend showing it to me.
Look, I would never tell you that every game I love is perfect, or even good.
It has been a really terrifying, hellish month and it's only the third day of it as I write this, and so, as a coping mechanism I've been playing a lot of Fallout 4. Yes, that's right, I deal with stress by playing a game where humanity blew up the world.
How urgent is your main quest when you spend all your time meandering along the way?
It's the end of the world as we know it.
I have a real problem.
Fans of Fallout 4 love the post-apocalyptic first person shooter not only for its gameplay (and addictive Pip-Boy app for smartphones) but for its customization options.
