(I’m still going to attempt to avoid spoilers but it gets more and more difficult with each passing week. I will be able to avoid major game spoilers but I’m going to talk about minor ones.)
In the game, one of the first quests you get is to “go to Diamond City and get the MacGuffin.” Of course, between where you start out in the game and where Diamond City is, there are a bunch of sidequests that have you bouncing around like a pinball chasing yet another Stat Point (JUST ONE MORE) before you feel like you have done the required background work prior to going for the MacGuffin in question.
So I’m running around the Wasteland on behalf of the Brotherhood of Steel, cleaning up areas of entities of ill intent, searching for useful tech to give to my peeps, and doing some light research for these lazy, lazy people. Oh, and I’m building a community and making sure that everybody is happy and employed and has enough guns to not worry about entities of ill intent.
And the MacGuffin can wait. I have Power Armor to collect. And communities to tweak. And supermarkets to loot. And bunkers to bunk. Oooh! Is that a distress signal I’m walking past? Wait a sec, I’ve got to go check it out.
So… what are you playing?
