“Does this game look good?” is the question. I had a bunch of nice things to say about it when the game was new:
- It’s got lots of color and they don’t abuse the color filter like in Fallout 3.
- The faces don’t look like potatoes, like they did in Fallout 3 and New Vegas.
- The weapons look pretty cool compared to Fallout 3.
- The supermutants are a little less like Fallout 3 and a little more like Fallout 1.
But that’s praising the game by pointing out how awful Fallout 3 looked. A more fair question would be, “Does Fallout 4 look good for a game in this time period, with these system requirements?”
I don’t know. I’m just glad that wretched green filter is gone.
C++ is a wonderful language for making horrible code.
