Seriously though. I feel as if Bethesda is actively trying to get me to aviod side quests at all costs.
Go here escort/kill/defend/get this guy/place/thing is a tired old tradition that should end.
My traditional play for RPGs is do all available side quests, loot everything, kill all creatures. Fallout 4 is forcing me to play the main story line by their poor excuse for added hours of game play.
Witcher 3 on the other hand almost every mission that I played (I still haven’t finished the main story line) tried to tie along with each other.
Maybe I am judging to early, two days played, but this might be the first Fallout game that I finish the main story and set it back down.
