I see a lot people saying how this is "the worst in the franchise" and a "shit game". Honestly, yeah its fairly different too the other games and lacks some RPG elements, but i love still love it and find my self coming back to it every now and then.
I was a huge fan of Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas and i still love this game, just because you are a fan of 3 or NV does not mean you will hate this game.
I will definitely recommend not spending money on any of the dlc however. Fallout 3 and New Vegas' dlc were great and added a lot to the game however Fallout 4 dlc is not like that. Far Harbor is probably the best one out of the 6, Automatron's story line was fairly short and added some new crafting features but is not worth the money it in my opinion. and then the other dlc's are just crafting add ons that Bethesda decided to release as separate add ons trying to force you to spend more money on more dlc or buy the season pass.
