Persuasion failed!
2 : Anonymous2021/05/10 01:07 ID: gxk43sg

Mine are: “Yes”, “No”, “Oh, really?”, and “That’s cool”

ID: gxknco6

My only option is “sorry, can you repeat that.” Until I give up and just say “Ya”.

It’s embarrassing when I answer “Yes” to something that wasn’t a yes or no question. :p

ID: gxkt8td

Ah fellow deaf people. I only ask others to repeat themselves once now. I’ve given up on being able to hold conversations

ID: gxkxa3c

The worst is group conversations. I can get by comfortably fine asking one to repeat themselves at least a couple times before I give up, but if several people are involved, forget about it so I just sit there feeling completely distant and excluded 🙁

ID: gxky9he

Mine is “sorry can you repeat that”, “mmm”, “gotcha”, and “okay”

ID: gxln978

Them: mumble something important SOMETHING SPOKEN CLEARLY.

Me: what was that?


Me: no, not that, the thing you said before that...

Them: what do you mean? I said "SOMETHING SPOKEN CLEARLY".

This goes on for a few minutes before I give up.

At least here you’ll know what you will say unlike FO4.

“Can you help me with this quest kind sir?”

[pick sarcastic option expecting something funny and witty] “Eat shit and die!”

Welp, time to start a new game save.

I rarely know what I'm going to say until I say it. I'm just as surprised as everyone else by the stupid shit that comes out of my mouth

My favorite line in the whole game is from the DLC. Some parents are asking you to find their missing child they fear is already dead, and offer to let you take their boat to the island where she went missing.

I miss the older games where you would have a bunch of unique dialogue if you had very low intelligence.

ID: gxkod8u

There's a mod that eliminates this issue and gives game engine support to Fallout 3/NV style dialogue

Leave it to the community to fix problems developers created.

I’d be interested in a play through where you only ever pick the “X” option. I suspect it’s play out almost the same as any other play through. 🙁

ID: gxkuw9l

yeah no sarcasm usually is a harmless act that progresses the conversation, eventually you get a passive aggressive statement that usually is considered “good” from what i remember

ID: gxkwtsb

There’s playthroughs of people only doing sarcastic option and yea, it doesn’t change the story or outcome.

Yeah, people who think FO4's problem is that we only got 4 options clearly never played FO3 or New Vegas. In terms of dialogue options, 4 certainly gave you 4 choices to pick from more often than the other titles. It's just that the choices were poorly conveyed to the player. Not to mention, they gave the main character a voice only to remove options away from the player, making the dialogue choices rather superfluous.

To be fair, there are actually less than 4 options in Fo4 most of the time. You have "Yes", "Sarcastic/Randomly Mean Yes", "Tell me more before I make this decision", and "I'll make this decision later" which really just breaks down to "Yes" or "No, but maybe later".

You guys have four dialogue options in real life?

ID: gxjq7u4

I dont know, you pick...

ID: gxk2gu5

My man!

ID: gxk07vi

I have 8 dialogue options:

Yes No Maybe I don't know Can you repeat the question? You're not the boss of me now You're not the boss of me now and you're not so big! Life is unfair

I once had a conversation with my wife for 20 minutes, in which I only said "Uh huh" to everything she said. I wanted to see how long it took her to notice.

She never did.

ID: gxkvv10

Are we married to the same wife?

ID: gxl2c31

Are you and that other guy married to my wife?!

Where's the action to just laugh when you ask someone to repeat something the 3rd time and you still don't understand them?

ID: gxjz4br

*Nervous laugh

Damn, that's crazy!

No (sarcastic)

Honestly, the four dialogue options thing isn't what bothers me. Its that they boil them down to these tiny prompts instead of having the full text, the voiced protagonist messes with my idea of what my character sounds like, and makes it really effing hard to make/enjoy quest mods properly.

I thought that said: "I don't know you prick...".

I thought in fallout 4 it was yes, no, really bad joke, or really unnecessary aggression

ID: gxkiie5

Essentially, but the worst part is that never really had an meaningful effect on the game.

Like if you use mods to show you the full text, they all basically lead you through the same path anyways.

A) Meme B) Bad Pun C) (Stay Silent) D) Advance the storyline

My options are like this, but it's buggy. I often say the opposite of what I want to say.

21 : Anonymous2021/05/10 03:51 ID: gxkkozj

honestly the best responses in fo4 are just the sarcastic dialogues, some of my favorite include:

"No! I'm Jangles, the Moon Monkey!"
"I'm here to pick up an order, two large pepperonis and a calzone. Name is "Fuck you"."
and "Right, we're here to steal your kidneys and your memories. That's why I'm wasting time talking to you through the door."

Hate it when the options don't even matter.

Wanna go to the movies?


-Nah, some other day

-Not feeling it today

-How about somewhere else?

~I see... How about the park?

~I see... How about the park?

~I see... How about the park?
