18 hours, level 14, and all I have to show for it is a two story shack with an attached garage. Fallout 4’s story has been great so far, but given the fact that I’ve only spent a fraction of my time moving the story forward, and that I can’t quite get my house wired for electricity just right, the story is taking a backseat to the coolest feature of Fallout 4. Every time I step out of Sanctuary to go get something done I find myself running back to add something else to my settlement, and that’s awesome.
I’m the type of sadistic gamer that cranks a games difficulty as high as it can go just to have it kick me in the balls repeatedly. Why do I do this? Well it’s not because I like doing the same things over and over again, it’s because I want my games to last. The longer I play a game, the more I feel that I got what I payed for. Fallout 4’s settlements have solidified this games worth for me, and the best part about it is that I’m no where near finishing any aspect of this game, by any means.
Here’s a small glimpse of what I had done at the 12 hour mark. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to install a ceiling fan.
