Best Xbox One Games #12 – Fallout 4
Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Synopsis: As per series tradition, Fallout 4 begins as the world ends. You and your family are some of the lucky ones to head to their local Vault 111 just as a nuclear bomb lands in the Boston area. However, right as you enter a frozen vegetative state to wait out the nuclear fallout, an unknown antagonist kills your spouse and steals your newborn child. As you awaken many years later, it becomes your sole task to find your son and take down whoever destroyed your family.
Why it’s one of the 50 best Xbox One games: The characters of Fallout 4 make for interesting choices in personal allegiance. Showing support for certain causes will have varying pros and consequences, leading to a number of different gameplay options. More importantly, the level of customization available to the player is absolutely bonkers. Weapons and armor can be tinkered with, and everything you find has a substantially important use for something you can do or make.
Furthermore, we absolutely love the changes to the leveling system. Investing into perks allows for the freedom to explore the character you wish to be. Want to be a bumbling idiot who manages to luck into a completed campaign? You can do that. Want to settle things like diplomats more often than not? You might be opposed to an equally viable character that slugs his way to victory. There are so many gameplay styles you can perform Fallout 4 that one can’t help but immerse themselves in the protagonist they wish to be.
