I got hyped by the TV series so I will play the game for the first time (yes, I know, it took this long). I usually prefer to buy GOG version of a game but I saw the rating of FO4 GOG at 3.9/5. Why is that? I have read somewhere that there is technical issue of some sort which includes modding for GOG version? I expected higher gamer rating for FO4 in GOG but a lower rating typically indicates for me some genuine issues.

Edit: also the GOG Version says it does not include the Creation Club. What is it and is it in some way better than using Nexus mods?

    Fallout 4 is bland and empty for a fallout game. This is almost entirely due to the settlement mechanic.

    You don’t need, or want, the creation club. It’s just frankly bad cosmetic mods with some few new weapons added, but the weapons aren’t added right so you’ll run out of ammo for them.

    Its also buggy as hell and they never bothered fixing anything. To the point that a large modlist is required just to make the game baseline finished

    However, with a decent modlist, and Sim Settlements to fix/remove the tedium of that abysmal system, it becomes a good game.

    Edit: equally, because New Vegas is using Bethesda’s engine from Fallout 3, it needs a large modlist to make it playable too. But it at its core is a fun game.
