Having accidentally recreated the camera view from the first two Fallout games, he went and took a series of screenshots that have me thinking maybe I should try and play Fallout 4 like this from now on.

Or not. Seems that while the viewpoint looks great in these casual screenshots (made by tweaking some .ini files and using the third-person camera), “It falls apart once you try to enter combat though, or do really anything else besides walking around outside. It also won’t work indoors simply because of how 3D environments are created.”

Bummer.

DISCUSSION

While the perspective change would be welcoming to long time Fallout fans, it wouldn’t save the game from its core gameplay shortcomings and mediocrity.
