If that is what you are looking for and you can be gracious as well as honest with where the game is presently at, Fallout 76 is worth checking out. If you are on the fence, I would recommend waiting to see how Bethesda handles updates and patches. That should give you a sense of where the game is at and what kind of attention it will be receiving. Personally, I am loving my experiences in Appalachia. It has been a great point of connection with friends and family.
All in all, I dreaded every hour I had to keep playing Fallout 76 for review. As soon as the game was beginning to teeter on fun or interesting, a bug or a frustrating gameplay design element would quickly remind me that the game was otherwise. I’m interested to see whether Bethesda will continue to put work towards making this a somewhat enjoyable experience or if they’ll just save their money for Fallout 5.
Even the online component of the game fails. Due to the lack of proper voice controls, the world of Fallout 76 is inhabited by a bunch of silent psychopaths. On top of that, a poor networking implementation means laggy servers will constantly plague on your experience. In my opinion, the only fun to be had in Fallout 76 is with a group of friends.
