But they were more graphically-competent relative to other titles of the time, whereas FO4 is clearly lagging behind in visuals.

The visuals in FO3 certainly aided to the appeal. I enjoyed the great draw distances and details. The discovery of new areas and visually-interesting sights added to the playability of the game.

I wouldn't simply dismiss the dated graphics of FO4. Having sub-par visuals in a AAA title could hinder it's long-term appeal.

Yes, but on PC, mods will come with time and textures will be replaced. I'm not worried.

If those are not going to be paid that is. I am okay with paying for major mods but if I need to shell out 3 bucks for every small improvement that is not going to fly.

Supposedly on XBoxOne it'll get the mods and improved textures too.

Based on what we've seen so far it's leaps and bounds better than the last Fallout game. That's good enough for me.

They're not THAT bad. It certainly won't ruin it's appeal long-term: at worst, it looks like something that could have potentially came out a few years earlier in the fantasy land of unlimited game budgets.

As for FO3, I don't think it was any less behind graphically than FO4 will be. You know what else came out in October 2008? Dead Space. Anyhow, let's look at this from a Bethesda release stand-point. They make a new engine for Oblivion, then use the same engine (with some polish) for Fallout 3. They make a new engine for Skyrim, then use the same engine (with some polish) for Fallout 4.

If all you care about is graphics, why even bother playing games? Go watch a AAA movie instead where you can gawk at all the overly saturated pretty visuals until your eyes fall out.

Oh, don't worry, it's not.
