I'm definitely not someone that hates the new Fallout games. In fact, I loved 3 and New Vegas for different reasons. Anyway, I obviously picked up 4 on release day and played it for about a week and then stopped. I just can't take any more of it.
*Spoilers, I guess*
The world isn't very interesting to me, despite living in the New England area, and quests are simply dreadful. There was one quest where I went around and found dead squad members, trying to figure out what happened to them. When I went to complete the quest I got a line or two of dialogue expressing the guy's disappointment the rest of his team was dead and that was it.
At another point I stumbled across a racetrack. I heard the announcer saying stuff, calling out the racers by name (they were robots), and I thought, "This sounds cool!" But as soon as I got near there, it was just raiders and they only wanted to fight. I read someone else didn't care for this part of the game either (I think it was RPS, actually).
And there's just so much fighting. I don't mind the occasional battles, but it seriously felt more like a shooter than a role-playing game.
All that to say I'm just super bored with it. It isn't very interesting to me and it seriously kills me. I think I'm going to pick up Morrowind to compensate.
Forgot to mention the writing is...well, it isn't awful, but it isn't memorable. Which is possibly worse.
