i liked every other level. every level is way too much, and honestly every 3 levels makes character building feel a bit too bland. make your total perks too limited and most people wont even experience most perks, even across multiple playthroughs.
lol hauntbot is my new favorite user... ~OgesMC people who agree with Oges: 5
The "old Fallout" games provided perks every three levels, not two. As of Fallout: Tactics members of different races/species perked at different level intervals. Humans every 3, Ghouls every 4(3 with Fear the Reaper), dogs every other level, then there are Super Mutants, Death Claws, and the non-perking Robots.
I think we need a return to the old system so that character development can be just that: development. As it stands now, gaining a perk at every even level up to 50, most characters end up with a wide array of specializations that do not force efficient and tactical decision making during the growth process. I am not saying that I do not enjoy a godly run through every now and then but the system as it stands now is self defeating.
I agree with all those who argue that a single player game cannot be played in an inappropriate fashion, yet I do think that the core of a video game RPG is the systemics and growth process. When this is reduced to nothing more than a path to undisputed dominance without the need for consideration or planning, I personally feel, this destroys the core of the video game RPG experience. Anyone who has played the Fable series can attest to this, I think.
It'd be kinda cool if they based it on the difficulty that your playing at.
if your game was set to ... Easy = every level Normal = every 2 levels Hard/Very Hard = every 3 levels Hardcore = every 4 levels
This way the casual gamers can make superman play-throughs. Hardcore gamers can have a challenge and everyone else can pick and chose how they see fit, everyone's happy and everyone gets to have their own kind of fun.
Heck why not just have a game without perks while we are at .. pfftt. Really though every other level regardless of difficulty is just fine ... this is FO after all where the whole point is not to prove to others how much of a gaming god you are (go play COD or Gears or something if that is your aim) but to experience as much as possible ... mostly through exploration not fighting.
