Fallout 4 is one of the best RPGs I ever played. I agree that the story is not as well-written as the one in Fallout: New Vegas, but the game mechanics, visuals, and the level up system have been vastly improved.
The fun in Fallout 4 is never really over. I invested over 100 hours of gameplay before I started experimenting with community modes. Since the community behind Fallout is extremely active, you’ll find new modes with new things to do regularly. But setting the game mechanics aside, Fallout 4 holds a special place in my heart because of the post-apocalyptic world with beautiful, dark visuals. It uses the same Creation Engine that Bethesda used with Skyrim. I’m aware that some game critics were disappointed by the game’s visuals, but come on. Fallout 4 is set in a post-apocalyptic world, it wouldn’t make sense if everything was bright and shiny.
I’m a die-hard fan of Fallout 4, even if I don’t play it as much as I used to. However, I strategically keep mementos that remind me of how great the game really is. Aside from an official Fallout mug that handles all my coffee intake, I have a selection of Fallout wallpapers that change automatically to remind me of different game moments. In hopes that you share my passion for Fallout 4, I decided to share them with you guys.

Even if it requires an eternity to start firing, the minigun makes up for it with an incredible fire rate and ammunition capacity. But be mindful on which enemy you use it on, as ammunition for it requires a decent amount of caps.
A synth is a Fallout term for an android or an artificial human. Fallout 4 does a good job of telling the background story on how the synths were created and what’s the difference between the three generations that determine their complexity.

Before it started cutting enemies for the Sole Survivor, Codsworth was a robotic butler brought by the family not long before the big nuclear disaster. Being a robot he was denied entry to the Vault, so he stayed behind in the family home until being reunited with the Survivor.
Deathclaw is one of the most formidable enemies in Fallout 4. It’s a mutated creature created through genetic engineering from a chameleon. Although it has lost its color-changing ability due to mutation, it’s large, agile and capable of killing you with just a few blows.
This garage will serve as a safe haven whenever you feel like taking a break from the wasteland. You can use it to work on armor modifications and apply power armor mods. It’s also one of the first places where you can get a power armor without having to fight anyone.

One of the main things that made me a big fan of Fallout was the wonderful soundtrack. Without exceptions, every installment had memorable “soundgasms” that fit the atmosphere of the game like a glove.
Raiders are a group of hostile gangs found throughout the Commonwealth and Boston. They are undisputedly the weakest enemies in Fallout 4. But while they drop dead after just a bullet or two, their strength lies in numbers. If you’re not careful, you’ll easily get overwhelmed by them.
The Nuka Cola Quantum is the ultimate consumable soft drink in Fallout 4. According to the lore, it has twice the properties of a normal Nuka Cola, with a touch of radioactive strontium isotope (whatever that is).
