Lost in Fallout 4
I think I’m maybe 25% of the way through things, having mostly just arrived at Diamond City and found the missing detective. I’ve also taken Independence, but I think that was kind of a fluke as it was way over my skill level.
I’m still mostly figuring out where I can and can’t venture, and I’ve started several quests that seem quite above my paygrade at the moment (I sprinted like a coward through a few places, just to avoid getting attacked).
It’s fun to spend so much time playing games again, though it does still leave me with a weird residual. During the actual game play, it feels relaxing and fun. But emerging from the fog, I feel like I’ve wasted several hours and regret not being in front of my computer, working on some project or other.
It helps somewhat that I don’t have a particular project at the moment. But I do end up feeling like I could spend my time in a more construtive way, as opposed to scrounging around for bottle caps and ammunition for hours on end.
