Fallout 4 will be less open ended if what the devs said are true and for me it's a good thing. Open ended, sandbox-y type of games. I like tight, focused narrative and have no time or interest in roaming maps looking for random loot.

People praise stuff like being able to nuke Megaton but honestly, it's not a big deal. It's a starting city with no relevance in the later game. The fact you can destroy it without bigger repercusions show how little my actions impact the game.

I totally see the appeal of those kind of games, but they are just not for me. I feel sorry for old Fallout 3 fans which enjoyed the old gameplay but for me, this  change, together with the voice lines, may make me a fan of Fallout again.
