** The Creation Club can either be described as Bethesda trying to milk the game over actually fixing it, along with Skyrim, a way to get the creators to get paid, or a way to introduce player-made content to the [[UsefulNotes/Playstation4 PS4]], due to Sony's policies regarding user-made content.

From the pricing and bundling, most fans agree with the "milking over actually fixing it" part.


** Controversy arose from TropeNamer [[GiantBomb Jeff Gerstmann]] giving the console versions 3 stars out of 5, attributed to performance issues. (The PC version got a 4.)

* ReplacementScrappy: Regardless of people's opinions about Travis whether he's nervous or confident, almost no one really likes his replacement on Diamond City Radio if you kill him [[spoiler:Sheng Kawolski]] due to his self-advertised comments about his water business.

** The game has reduced the limit of companions to '''one''' slot, whereas previous games had two: one for humanoid companions and another for animal (and/or robots, as is the case in ''New Vegas'') companions. Considering that there are ''many'' NintendoHard areas in this game (especially in the add-ons), and companions can quickly use up whatever ammunition you give to them, this makes navigating through the game's world more of a challenge than it needs to be. What's particularly egregious is that this game actually has companions interact with each other through dialogue...but only for passing the torch onto the next person that follows the Survivor.

There are mods that allow you to have more than one companion, but every single one of them has [[GameBreakingBug game breaking bugs]].


** Some disliked the depiction of super mutants in ''Fallout 3'' as DumbMuscle AlwaysChaoticEvil {{Mooks}}, a stark contrast to the first two titles (and ''New Vegas'') where they were more intelligent, could be reasoned with, and had goals and motivations. This game's super mutants were made from a separate batch of FEV than the Vault 87 mutants, resulting in them being a CompositeCharacter between the ''Fallout 3'' versions and the originals; they're still brutal and violent, but they are much more intelligent and competent. Through holotapes and conversation with Strong, it is also demonstrated they follow a chain of command and have a code of honor among themselves. This isn't considered a complete fix though, since every supermutant you encounter is still this universe's equivalent of orcs.

* DesignatedVillain: The Brotherhood of Steel. Ever since their first appearance (in which they did nothing but defending themselves from ferals), natives look at the BOS with disdain as if the natives, including Preston, are xenophobic. Even when they're told to be militaristic, they did not, at all, antagonize the locals (the worst being asking for farm supplies, but they never did that outside of the quartermaster's quest). Maxson's speech even shows what definitely is that TheExtremistWasRight.

* DesignatedVillain: The Brotherhood of Steel. Ever since Many in the Commonwealth fear the Brotherhood to be a conquering force, and the player character acting on their first appearance (in which they did nothing but defending themselves behalf can indeed extort food from ferals), natives look at settlements. They're also unabashedly guilty of FantasticRacism, and are unfriendly to outsiders. However, unlike the BOS with disdain as if the natives, including Preston, are xenophobic. Even when Institute, they're told not hostile to be militaristic, civilians. Unless the Sole Survivor turns on them, they did not, at all, antagonize the locals (the worst being asking for farm supplies, but they never did that outside of the quartermaster's quest).

Added DiffLines:

** Is Piper a feisty, good-hearted activist who is bringing the truth to the people of Diamond City and helping them stay safe, or is she only preying on and escalating their paranoia? While [[spoiler: almost everything she writes about turns out to be true (the mayor being a synth, the Institute being a threat)]], her writing is incredibly biased and spends more time casting suspicion than it does presenting straight facts. Her reporting style is the type of [[GonzoJournalism Yellow Journalism]] that is heavily criticized by most credible journalistic standards. And we know of at least one person who is killed due to the intense fear they all have of the Institute, a fear that Piper actively encourages through her writing and never seems to feel remorseful about.

Added DiffLines:

** Bobbi No-Nose isn't exactly well-liked, since she refuses to tell you anything about the job she's hired you for, the quest tied to said job is a tedious slog, and [[spoiler:she's conning you into stealing from Hancock, one of the most popular companions in the game]] without providing any sympathetic motivation on her part. Thankfully, some catharsis can be extracted [[spoiler:from being given the chance to kill her at the end of the quest]].


*** Not helping this debate is the fact that FalloutNewVegas's base game had only slightly less quests in total than Fallout 4 ''with all [=DLCs=] installed'', leading some to point out that New Vegas in 18 months of development gave more quantity *and* quality then Fallout 4 did with 8 years of dev time for the base game plus the additional year of DLC development. There's also been more than a few times that the main plot of 4 is described as being New Vegas' but arguably toned down. Though some do consider 4's plot better for being more streamlined than NV's.

** Is Piper's reporting to the benefit or detriment of the Commonwealth? Her style of journalism is frequently inflammatory and is likely as much to blame for the citizens of Diamond City jumping at every mention of the word "Synth," if not more, than actual Synth infiltration. In spite of there being Super Mutants, organized Raiders and the Gunners right outside their doorstep (who have been said to attack), Piper focuses all her energy on one danger which occurs rarely. In addition, rather than trying to find solutions or determine the underlying basis of her story, she incites people in her generic dialogue with leading questions. (The abductions besides Synth-replacements aren't elaborated upon in-game and it's left ambiguous how much is due to the Institute, given that the Gunners also abduct people.)


** Pickman, a SerialKiller met during a particular quest, has a significant fan following, likely thanks his polished, handsome outward appearance and oddly charming demeanor. The fact that he ''only'' seems to prey on [[VillainByDefault Raiders]] makes him more of a far more sympathetic SerialKillerKiller.

** Also from ''Nuka-World'': [=RedEye=], the DJ of Raider Radio, is well-liked for being a LaughablyEvil LargeHam who's voiced by none other than Music/AndrewWK.

** The very mention of the Sole Survivor (both male and female) having an amazing butt has become this thanks to the trailers providing us with multiple gratuitous ass shots in form-fitting vault suits.

** Playing the Railroad and the Institute both, complete with [[spoiler: secretly betraying the Institute so that they fail the raid on Bunker Hill]]? Father will chew out the Sole Survivor for how suspicious it looks to somehow walk away from what seemed to be assured victory as the only one alive - and then turn around in just a sentence to focusing on embedding the Survivor into the Institute leadership anyway like the incident simply didn't happen. Father's [[HorribleJudgeInCharacter not the best judge]] on others to say the least, but the sheer 180 recklessness of this [[spoiler: is one of the ways to infiltrate the Institute to blow it up from the inside-out.]] [[SarcasmMode Good going, Father.]]
