Despite being one of this generation’s most popular titles, Fallout 4 isn’t without its flaws. One of the criticisms of the game was that it lacked strong writing, and this is easiest to see when choosing a faction. While interesting conceptually, the factions don’t have much depth. The Minutemen are the “good guys”, the Railroad are nearly identical to them, and the Institute are unquestionably evil — pretty bland, overall.
However, the Brotherhood of Steel is different. Unlike the other groups, their quest line is full of interesting themes and hard choices. Due to this, the Brotherhood is the only faction to side with in post-apocalyptic Commonwealth of Massachusetts that makes you critically think.
