So, because my son was grounded all weekend, I had ample time to play Fallout 4 while he sat in his room reading and writing. I got to level 18 so far. I have a few thoughts now.
I like building the town and community.
I need to find a doctor because I'm super addicted to a lot of stuff.
The scrapping mechanism is a mess, and requires you to throw stuff on the ground, and then scrap it in a different menu. Just let me do it from a single point, say, activating a crafting table somewhere.
Getting Power Armor was too easy. I played through Fallout 3 and New Vegas almost never acquiring it. I already have two sets of Power Armor, and a third if I join the Brotherhood of Steel.
Surprising number of low-res textures. I'm playing on PS4.
My phone is too big for my Pip-Boy.
I spent a lot of time wandering. I have encountered an absurd number of enemies with skulls next to their names and several Legendary-level enemies. I did not realize the enemies could mutate into stronger forms. I thought there was a bug leading to some aggravating deaths.
Typical Bethesda bug-heavy environment. People walking into walls, enemies with obvious movement patterns, the dog routinely gets in my way. Pipe-guns are awful. I have two Miniguns, two Rocket Launchers, the Fat Man, and the Junk Gun already. I stored some spares just in case.
