All right. So here's another twitter rant about #Fallout76 and why it tries and fails to be a 'theme park', and how human (or 'actor') NPCs are necessary when creating a 'theme park' video game.
I have worked at several theme parks over the years - Including Disneyland California.

At Disneyland, you are not just a customer service person, but a 'cast member.' You are there to behave almost like an actor. You are there to help the guests get into the spirit of the park.
This means that when I was at work I would act at all times like a pleasant, genial, approachable person. I would answer the more bizarre guest questions with answers that were in a way, in-character with my role as a park rep, often times playing off the make-believe of the park

So here's what I think about Fallout 76:

-There is a good game buried in there somewhere but Bethesda has no coherent vision for what that game is.

-The job of making a good game out of Fallout 76 should be offloaded to modders and private-custom player-run servers.
-The game's technical hitches and quality of life improvements should be addressed to a high degree before additional content is added. (As the new content could potentially break the game otherwise, as well as compound the unpleasant factors in the game.)
-PVP should be taken out COMPLETELY of the regular game. (Except for the PVP team-fight events, those are fine - and when you die during those you should not drop your junk.)

-There should be a spinoff mode to the game of PVP-only servers with their own separate balance & rules

The material we played through in #Fallout76 tonight was fucking brilliant. It was some of the best, most iconically Fallout content I've seen. Such a far cry from what I've grown to expect from the Bethesda games. It GETS Fallout.
The Brotherhood of Steel in Fallout 3 and 4 were just gross, juvenile, and fascist. In #Fallout76, they’re nuanced, with complex, engaging philosophical conflicts.
There’s one line which is used to oppose resorting to nuclear weapons. “There will always be a reason to use a weapon.” I felt in that moment, that was the first time a Bethesda game understood what Fallout is actually about.

Playing some Fallout New Vegas: Old World Blues in preparation for #Fallout76 Come on in!…
We finished Old World Blues. That fucking ending. I've probably played that DLC nine times through, and every time it leaves me a little weepy. What a fucking brilliant piece of game design. Truly nothing else like it.
"There was Old World Blues, and New World Hope. And hope ruled the day."

FUUUUUUUUUCK @Obsidian, why aren't more games like this? Something truly memorable and special. Thank you all.

The real question : is it multiplayer only ?
Very seriously, I hope they'll talk about their accessibility intiative #a11y #E32018
