First a disclaimer. I am not simply taking a shot at Bethesda. They just happen to be the first company I have experienced doing this. I have no doubt others have done this, and if they haven’t they soon will. And it is a slap in the face to customers in my humble opinion. Feel free to comment others that have done this tho.
Anyway, this week I bought the game of the year version of Fallout 4. I picked up the original when it first released, really enjoyed it as did my daughter. Beat it, traded it in bought some new stuff and figured I would do the usual and buy the GOTY edition when it came out. Did this with Fallout 3 and New Vegas, did this with the Elder Scrolls games as well. I have also done this with other companies games that I enjoyed. I never have it in me to wait for all the DLC to trickle out anyway plus they have always just tossed it all in the disk and I like that.
Flash forward to this week. Figure pick it up, me and my daughter can bounce it between systems ( I own a PS4 pro she has my old PS4) and enjoy. I pop that bad boy open and install. No DLC installed. That’s annoying but hey maybe its pretty big and it sort of unlocks and I download it..no. Shoot maybe I missed something on the case..nope a few passes and I see nothing. This shit is hidden if its even there.
I’m hoping I’m wrong. Don’t tell me Bethesda did this to me. Yea. Right there where they used to stick instruction manuals is a code on a card for the season pass. The GOTY edition is literally nothing more than the base game in a new case with a code for the season pass. Suffice it to say this is the most disappointed I have ever been in a GOTY edition of a game. Sure if you don’t own the game its a good deal, but it is a huge disappointment if you do or still like games on a disk. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
