I was anticipating these games for some time but had to wait for a sale, and good internet access, to get them recently. Since I began playing them there has been no other games for me.
Of course both of these are by Bethesda Studios, and both are from long loved video game series. I appreciate the intricacy of the worlds of Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls so much. One gives you the experience of being in a medieval style setting while the other is set in a futuristic wasteland. The best of two extremes.
I respect the detail and cohesiveness put into the series by the creators. In Fallout 4 you can go to one place and read on their computer diary the struggles they are experiencing, it will reference another group of people or several groups. You stumble across the settlement they were referencing and find the person they mentioned in that seemingly random entry. Of course this is only after you killed them and looted their stuff that you realize it.
