Here’s a spoiler for Josh: I watched the episode and I SEE WHAT YOU DID.
I never teamed up with former mayor MacCready, so I can’t really comment on what they’ve done with him. I hear people say that he’s actually a pretty good companion, but I favor stealth gameplay and companions do not mix well with stealth. I thought it was surprising that he was in the game, but it doesn’t even make my list of top 100 Fallout 4 gripes. I mean, if I was given the choice between:
- Re-work an unpopular character to give them another chance. (MacCready in Fallout 4.)
- Hopelessly butcher an existing popular character by bending their story into nonsense and mercilessly flanderizing their personality quirks. (Harold in Fallout 3.)
I will take #1 every time.
