    I love Bethesda man, they are always funny, give you freedom, give great stories, and now it's even much more interactive now that your character can talk. I will never hate any of their work because I already admire the elder scrolls series, Rage, Dishonered, and the previous fallouts. I just love all their work and as long as they are still producing a product that will be enjoyable and free, I could care less about the graphics or anything else. their games are always beautiful and if it isn't up to par with other new games, it's still beautiful and still fun so I could care less, honestly

    So the Fact Skyrim had 4k graphic in 2011 and shortly after 8k graphic. (Hint 4k back when 4k was you spend 10k on your PC). Your graphic bitching is Non starter.

    All these people complaining about graphics are probably too young to have grown up playing 8-bit games and saying things like "Virtua Fighter looks so real!"

    fallout is a story games not a fps shooter so high graphical rating is no need. I am a little disappointing that in steam the requirements are a little high up there especially for minimum. because to be honest the game does not look as good as the specs. then again i honestly don't care as long as the story gets me hooked. for me if the game is more on story like Mass Effect, fallout, Splinter cell, Dead space i dont give a rats ass for the graphics just the story so i get hooked. Now the only games i care about for graphics would be Battlefield, Battlefront, COD and Titanfall.

    WHY does everyone get so butthurt about graphics?! For me its like this: As long as the story is immersive, and it doesn't look like it was filmed with a potato, I'll enjoy it. ANd also, the 11 minute travel time may have been on a PC with Clipping on so you could just fly to the sky box and walk from one end to the other. I think beveryone needs to calm down, play it if they want to, and stop trying to shove their views down people's throats.

    people are so hyped about graphics today it's really ridiculous. Development has reached a point where things could hardly look any more natural. Also graphics are completely overrated and the constant complains about them show how nobody cares about the important things like a really good, deep story and interesting gameplay mechanics.

    I want to quote Ryan on this one:"What is this Disney-bullshit!?!"

    If anyone wants to experience natural textures and graphical fidelity they should go outside and have a walk. Things look awesome there. Let's have some balance in the video games again, please.

    everyone needs to stop freaking the fuck out, it takes about 30 mins to run from one end of skyrim to the other, that's including having to run around all the mountains and shit on the way, if the mountains in skyrim were all taken away then it would take around the same amount of time that it does in fallout.

      Also, depending on how you say "across the map", it can take longer. Is that from Falkreath to Winterhold, Dawnstar to the Throat of the World?

    The 11 minute traversal time is worrying, but I'm assuming this was the fastest possible time some people achieved, or we're not seeing the whole picture (as is often the case with leaked information). And people shitting on the graphics forget what unmodded Fallout 3 looks like, which was pretty terrible in a wonderfully Bethesda way. Stop comparing it to other games its not trying to be, compare it to what is used to be.

      the person who measured it probably had an incomplete, broken czech version of the game (no offense to Czechs here).

      or used some form of fast travel.

      Let's not believe in statistics we haven't messed up ourselves.

    I feel like bethesda knows the mooding community will just jump on this game and make it a beautiful game just like Skyrim which my modded version looks better than most my games, if they hired the modders it would kinda take from the whole "community" aspect of it won't it?

      funny you mention that. Bethesda gave modding communities the game layout so there are millioins of mods all ready made. also if you are on PS4 you will get mods!

    Lately it's almost like people are looking for the opportunity to shit on new games and they go mental when they dislike anything. Just chill out folks, nothing ever lives up to its hype and you just need to appreciate what good stuff is there. Only reason to ever get mad is when companies purposely fuck you ala Halo MCC.

    Idk, The 11 minutes thing is a bit disappointing, but at the same time the game world does seem very dense and varied from the video, and I feel like while playing I'll end up getting so immersed in the atmosphere that I wont even notice. And as someone who games on both PS4 and my PC, I think the game still looks gorgeous on consoles. Any issues with lighting may just be something that needs to be patched, who knows?

    The 11 min world thing bothers me, now I have to re-debate about getting Fallout 4.

      I doubt it will be very different from 3 or New Vegas in terms of map size. You could walk across them pretty quick. Besides if what is there is high quality with plenty to discover it shouldn't be an issue.

      I would think if it is 11 min to cross then that does not give a lot of info after all it could mean larger underground (-z) and/ or lots multi-story buildings (Z). also from the looks of the map for fallout 4 it's not squared its rectangular in shape plus we are not looking a mountain and etc. I really doubt they would make a map be that small. Also there has been a video of new vegas the cross 16 minutes so to put things into perspective

      But how many things to do will you encounter in that 11 minutes? That's far more important. Think about it. How far have you ever walked in a Fallout or Elder Scrolls game and not found a cave to explore, person to talk to (or brutally murder) and a quest to complete? Like 45 seconds? (I like how we're describing distance in terms of time). Some asshole who tried to steal a ring from me once said, "one does not simply walk across the map in a Fallout game".

      Why is this 11 minute thing such a big deal? Whoopdeedoo, it takes 11 minutes to get from one side to the other. Not like it'll take anything away from actually playing the game. It's fallout, play it, enjoy it and get over it.
