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.

Answering this question ages later: yes.

I haven't seriously gamed on PC in years. Mostly because I haven't re-invested in any kind PC since I purchaced an admittedly middling-to-terrible laptop on my second go at college (which was around 2006-2007ish). I had an "OK" desktop then as well, but neither were really going to do me any favors gamewise outside of classic arcade emulation or getting a wild hair up my ass to re-run something like Diablo, Blood Omen, or, yes, one of the original Fallout games.

I currently can't do anything *but* console. I have a steam account with one game- Portal. And that was from that time they gave it out free. And I couldn't do mouse and keyboard to solve puzzles I could see the solution to, but not execute (and my PC gamepad configuration settings weren't doing what they was supposed to be doing).

But circling back to this mess... it wouldn't matter much if I were on PC or console, as this game as a whole is just bullshit on hot, buttered toast.
