GR Pick: Fallout 4 Fans Create Famous Figures and Freaks

By | 12 months ago 

A lot of Fallout 4 fans go the extra mile in the post-apocalyptic RPG’s character creation system to craft celebrities as well as some disfigured weirdos.

Thanks to the advent of modern role-playing games’ allowance to let players meticulously create their characters, fans can spend countless hours tweaking facial features to make their protagonist perfect, or perhaps even intentionally imperfect. Now, with Fallout 4 out in the wild, it’s obvious the character creation system for Bethesda’s retro-futuristic title contains some of the most intricate facial customization qualities yet.

As seen in the gallery below, some Fallout 4 gamers have gone above and beyond to not only render striking resemblances of contemporary celebrities, but also to make a flock of the ugliest freaks imaginable. In the former camp, there’s Liam Neeson, Breaking Bad‘s Walter White (and Skyler, to boot), President Barack Obama, and even Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. In the latter squad we’ve found what appears to be a few scarred carnies, a strung-out druggie version of Super Mario, splicers from the BioShock series, and most interestingly, a glitchy Arno Dorian from Assassin’s Creed Unity—arguably one of the most broken games at launch.

Nowadays, it’s important for titles to strive to include the best character creators possible in order to ensure players’ complete immersion in the games, and considering these screenshots, Bethesda built an extremely nuanced system. Obviously, the robust caricatures seen above are only the tip of the iceberg, for once the game’s official mod tools are released, we’ll surely encounter almost identical recreations of characters from other famous intellectual properties. Perhaps we’ll eventually get some kits centered around a few Marvel Comics icons. And, honestly, who wouldn’t want to help civilize the Boston Commonwealth as Iron Man, or more aptly, Captain America?

At any rate, Fallout 4 is incredibly popular with fans and critics alike, as the action-RPG has received a roundup of rave reviews. Certainly, elements such as the irradiated title’s in-depth character creator played into pundits’ final scores. Bearing that in mind, it’s clear that gamers will be exploring all of the nooks and crannies that the game’s vast map has to offer for a long time to come.
