The Fallout franchise is arguably one of the most beloved series of games in history.
Every single entry has been met with a level of hype that is almost unprecedented. The latest release, Fallout 4, was no exception and managed to be one of the best-selling games of 2015.
That doesn’t mean that it’s perfect, though. Far from it.
For all of the good that Fallout 4 managed to introduce to the series, like more Power Armour animations and base-building, it also brought plenty of new problems and retained some of Bethesda’s biggest issues. For their first major game in the new generation of consoles, it was extremely disappointing to see Bethesda rush Fallout 4 onto the market.
On the plus side, the chances that Fallout 5 will manage to fix some of these problems is higher than ever. With the series having more fans than ever, it’s likely Bethesda will put a lot more time and resources into crafting a sequel that truly improves upon the previous releases, which is exactly what the Fallout series needs.
