Totally agree with that. The voice acting also makes the character have a personality , not being able to choose , for example, to be cynical or evil (can't say about the female character) it feels like I'm roleplaying as the same guy all the time. Also, RIP [Intelligence] [Endurance] [Luck]and the other SPECIAL
It wouldn't be such a problem for me,but another thing I forgot to mentio when starting this thread is: your dialogue options. "Why are you in diamond city?"
Options: "I am looking for my son"
"THOSE BASTARDS TOOK MY SON"
"I'm looking for a kid."
"*emotionally* they took something from me"
Like really Bethesda? No even one "I am starting a new life" or something?
"I heard you had cookies here" should have been one of the options.
Even as someone who liked the decisions Bethesda made and bought into the story, I found having all 4 options being about Shaun to be ridiculous. With the amount of information I had gathered at that point in the game it didn't seem logical to be telling total strangers about my son... He was kidnapped after all, it isn't like he just wandered off at the park.
Something shady was afoot and I wanted to keep me mission under wrap until I trusted people to be on my side.
