If Walton Goggins is in it, I'm up for watching it.

Hopefully the writing is better than some other Amazon shows. Tried the Wheel of Time series & the Lord of the Rings one. Wasn't a fan.

I'm on the final episode now. It's easily one of the top shows this year and of the last few years. It's really good.

Jonathan Nolan is the executive producer. The Nolan's know how to make good films.

Never played the video games. Heard the show was good and got the wife to watch it with me last night. Episode 1 was great. Wife is hooked so that's a bonus. Production value and budget of TV shows these days is absolutely insane.

Having played far too many hours of Fallout 3 in 2008/9, this is truth.

Watched the first episode last night with the wife. Not bad thus far and good enough to continue watching the next episode however, I could do without Xelia Mendes-Jones being in it. :confused:

U.M.
I had to look “her” up… woof, lol at least she doesn’t play a big part in the series… yet anyways

Loved Fallout 1 & 2.

Fallout 3 and 4 were created by retarded apes. While fun to play the world they "built" was trash.

Amazon series is likely trash.

I still can't get into the Fallout games but Goggins is solid. A spinoff focusing on Baby Billy would be a riot.
I have never played them, but definitely knew of them. After finishing up the series I decided to download fallout 4…not my cup of tea, lol… but the series has been f’ng great! Goggins was bad ass, would definitely want to see more of his character next season.

Said the same thing up until late last year. Started playing and forced myself through the first grind of it. Enjoyed it thoroughly after that because decisions you make in regard to missions and characters impact others down the line. The DLC made it even better, Far Harbor especially. Now I just run around with a big radiation powered sledge crushing heads:ROFLMAO:

You know, they’re releasing an update (finally) this month for free for FO4. Supposed to have finally squashed the bugs, added more content and visual/frame rate upgrades.

It's the world.

If you played the first 2 you'd understand.

This whole thing takes place 300 years after the bombs dropped.

Why is the world still a trashed out shithole with skeletons? Where are the villages, towns and farms?

I did play the first two, albeit very little as I couldn’t get into them. Also why I didn’t think I could get into playing 4. I think it’s like 217 years after the bombs dropped but I get your point. There are farms and Diamond City as well as GoodNeighbor.

You have to remember though that with the majority of civilization wiped out and the rest who had intelligence holed up on the vaults, it was almost a devolving point for humanity like the dark ages which lasted for some 500 years mind you. Is it that much of a stretch? I get the point about folks not cleaning where the live etc.

If you over analyze anything like a game or book, you can usually find plenty of fault in it. Bethesda is also terrible about rushing things. In the end, agree to disagree I guess.

We got through 2 episodes and my wife even enjoys it despite never having heard if the video game series.

I played New Vegas and Fallout 4. I did enjoy both though I got into new vegas like 2 years after it was released so a lot of bugs had been worked out.

No time for video games any longer after my 1st son was born and now really no time with an infant in the mix.

Heard of the games, never played a second of them.

Just finished episode 2 waitinf on my dog to go to sleep so I can go to sleep. I have no idea what’s happening.
World ended, check.
Prisoner, check.
These characters, no idea who is what.

I’ll stick with it though as it’s been entertaining I suppose.
