Is Fallout 4 Worth Buying?

Is Fallout 4 Worth Buying?

I've been playing Fallout 4 for almost a month now and I've been fortunate enough to invest nearly 50 hours into the game. The game isn't perfect, and it can be time consuming, but overall I've enjoyed my time in Bethesda's world and I think it's worth $60. Easy.

I'm not going to get into an in-depth analysis here. Instead, I'll run down a short list of pros and cons to consider before buying the game. 

Pros

1. Beautiful world with lots to see and do

2. Interesting quests

3. Excellent crafting system (weapons, armor, settlements)

4. Difficult choices make a big impact on the story

Cons

1. Tons of problems

If you're the type of person that can only commit a few hours a week to a game, I'm not sure if Fallout 4 is the right game for you. This isn't a game that's easy to pick up and play. If you're looking for a game like that, I suggest spending your money on Just Cause 3, Star Wars Battlefront or a sports game like FIFA 16. 

This game has eaten up nearly 50 hours of my time and I've barely touched the main quest. I just now made it to Diamond City, the biggest city in the game and the home to many of the game's quests. My guess is that I'll probably put in 400+ hours into the game before I'm satisfied. I'm fine with that. You might not be.
