A clean slate or an established background?
Undoubtedly, the last two games in the Fallout series have been the biggest, both in terms of scales and diversity. Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas both feature interesting protagonists. The Lone Wanderer already had a established personality. The protagonist was born to Catherine and James, raised in the Vault. In Fallout New Vegas, players take up the role of Courier who does not seem to have an established background.
Given that Fallout 4 will most likely launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and modern gaming PC, the developers might use that extra processing power and include multiple protagonists with multiple backgrounds. Of course this is a mere speculation at this point but it’s a possibility.
What will you prefer? Will you like to play as someone who has a concrete background like the Wanderer or as someone who has a clean slate like the Courier? Let us know in the comments section below.
