And for what? To sell some extra Vault Boy swag in their percieved perpetual money-making machine?

I feel like Seph: maybe after all that content, and tweaking the game for the better, I might give it a proper go... because I still hate that I am not excited about/really enjoy something that is Fallout. A game that makes me nostalgic for Brotherhood of Steel is clearly doing something wrong.
I think you're underestimating the amount of trash that comes out every year. Stuff you probably didn't even hear about. I think "worst game of the year" should be reserved for actually that. Games that few people could derive fun out of.

I think most of these worst games lists have gotten into the habit of confusing "worst game" with "most disappointing game". Fallout 76 is certainly a favorite for the latter, but I wouldn't consider it for worst.
