lets not forget that these 2 games are essentially the same game as previously released but on new maps, Oh and half baked multiplayer added to FO.
I don't know about hitman too much as all has been quiet and I guess the whole episodic release of the last one is what has put me off but I don't hear much in the way of FO76 being a game of the year contender (LOL @ FN winning ).

I wouldn't know what this means, but I have noticed interest in Fallout and Hitman dying down over the last year or so. A lot of people were very unhappy with Fallout 4, and Hitman is arguably on its last legs. I thought they were even going to stop making them after Absolution came out.

I was annoyed with FO4. Paid the full steam premium to get a poorly designed game which I had to hackmod for widescreen suppport, and also not able to experience over 60fps without bugs showing...

I'm done with the franchise.

That seems to be shared by A LOT of people. There's so many deep analysis videos on YouTube by established gamers (people with 10k+ subs) who give fair and rational criticism. I mean, you're not always going to make the game everyone wants, but it feels like Fallout 4 got a lot wrong, not just a few elements, and Fallout 76 isn't starting well particularly either.

FO76 is the Fallout game that NO ONE wanted. What a turd that is.

HELL no. I was tempted to get the power armor edition just for the big helmet, but I passed. Online FO doesn't interest me. I've watched quite a few hours of streamers playing it, and it's awful, truly awful. And I wasn't one of the FO4 haters even. I WANTED to like it, but I can't.

That's basically it. They removed all the story elements, all the NPC's (well human ones anyway), added a weak survival mechanism, and an online store selling cosmetic crap. It seems very people have ANY idea who this game is targeted towards. It's not aimed at typical FO players, since most of us are single player people. It's not aimed at the hardcore survival crowd, since the survival element is weak sauce and badly implemented. It's not aimed at the Fortnight / PUBG crowd, since PVP isn't the point, and you get punished for killing other players. The target audience for this is a total mystery.
