Yeah it is 9 plus hours ... with an interesting start looking at the start of Fallout [ the game ] from the lens of a documentary Atomic Cafe on the cold War Nuclear Attack / Civil Defense Program


The Atomic Cafe is a 1982 American documentary film directed by Kevin Rafferty, Jayne Loader and Pierce Rafferty.[2][3][4] It is a compilation of clips from newsreels, military training films, and other footage produced in the United States early in the Cold War on the subject of nuclear warfare. Without any narration, the footage is edited and presented in a manner to demonstrate how misinformation and propaganda was used by the U.S. government and popular culture to ease fears about nuclear weapons among the American public.

In 2016, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."[5]

Yep ... 50 Plus hours over the Holiday Weekend, I did not play yesterday, but I will days to come
I may have to buy a new gaming computer (mine has been collecting dust for 10 years) or maybe a Series X to play the game. Assuming it doesn't turn out to be like a lot of Bethesda games and need a solid 3-5 years for modders to fix all the issues.

I'm running a GTX 1070 ... I am able to run the game on a combination of High / Med settings ... the game looks good.

my only issue is running from a HD not an SSD, loading lags loading audio files ... especially in combat as the gunfire sounds have to load

I've only had 3 CTD in all that play, I had not updated my Video Drivers in a long while.

SSDs are so cheap now, hard to find an excuse not to install one. Even just a smaller one as a secondary drive for your games if you don't want to copy everything over or re-install the OS.

Amazon product

$60 for a reliable 2TB SSD in SATA format so it will work with your computer if it's an older one.
