There were a lot of elements that were dropped from Fallout 3 and New Vegas that people came to expect. Namely reputation system and stats such as lockpicking and medicine were replaced with tiered Perks. Plus building and farming have had people say they might as well play Minecraft. People are even mad about combat and how its no different than Call of Duty.

What amazes me is that even with people complaining about these features, Fallout 4 has a steady 200k player count on Steam. Perhaps people complain and won't stop playing because, hey, it's Fallout?

Though I do agree they changed a lot, I still think it's a good game in its own right.

I'm glad I waited, I normally buy games like this day 1 because I get excited for them, but this time I waited and I think I might wait to buy it someday in the future when it's cheap.

Quoted for truth. As per usual, Bethesda is doing its best to dumb down the game so that they can get more sales from the casual audience. That Bethesda fanboys will gobble up literally anything Bethesda will put on the market (and subsequently will defend it on various forums with almost religious fervor) doesn't help.

It's weird. I'm not sure about this, but did Skyrim have the same complaints when the "build-your-house" DLC came out?

Did it change since F3/F:NV? What's new?

The only thing I can say for sure is that the enemies have a little better AI. Their animations in combat and when they're being wounded and in death are better.

A lot of people hate how throwing weapons like grenades uses an alternate key which can't be remapped. I kind of hate that too.
