Sex & Nudity

  • The player can flirt with some characters.
  • Players can remove armor/clothing, and are left in underwear (cannot undress more than this).
  • There are certain characters found in the Fallout world that the player can "romance." What this means is that after flirting with them for a certain amount of time, the player can sleep with them. However no nudity is shown. All that happens is that the player goes to bed like normal, but they wake up next to their partner in bed. When you wake up, the player and their partner are fully clothed. This gives the player the perk "lovers embrace."
  • The player can find women throughout the world, who may flirt with the player (absolutely nothing graphic, generally something to the extent of "hi baby").

Violence & Gore

  • About as violent as its predecessors, though it can get more violent depending on the situation.
  • The most common enemies are monsters which emit a lot of blood.
  • The violence is absolutely not constant. The game is about exploring the world and finishing quests which occasionally involve violence. However, when this happens, it can be very graphic.
  • Some side quest missions are focused on combat.
  • The game includes a social pressure mechanic where the most companions disapprove of needless violence. Others, however, encourage it.
  • As players traverse the open-world environment, they complete various mission objectives and use machine guns, machetes, lasers, and explosives to kill mutants and other human survivors. Battles are frenetic with realistic gunfire, explosions, and large blood-splatter effects; some attacks result in slow-motion dismemberment and decapitations. A handful of scenes depict chunks of flesh as well as severed heads and dismembered corpses.
  • 'Fallout 4' contains graphic sci-fi violence ranging from shooting to stabbing.
  • The player can shoot enemies to death.
  • The violence is somehow comparable to Skyrim. This is also coincidental since this game is made by the same studio and the same publisher.
  • When you kill an enemy from behind, it results in a backstab. This is probably the cruelest way to kill enemies.
  • Tons and tons of dead bodies can be found laying around the world, however they are mostly just skeletons.
  • Melee fights are similar to those in Skyrim.
  • The player can occasionally find a dolphin-type fish on docks or shores with its stomach cut open.

Profanity

  • The words "f**k," "sh*t," and "a*shole" are heard in dialogue.
  • Once in a very long while you may just hear an F word. Otherwise, the language is not bad or frequent. Also s**t, crap Other mild expletives such as 'piss', 'damn/dammit', etc are also used throughout the game.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • During the course of the game, players can consume a variety of fictional drugs (e.g., Buffout, Jet, Psycho) through the use of a menu; repeated use of these drugs leads to an addiction status and various negative effects for characters.
  • In the silver shroud mission, there is talk of a man selling drugs to children.
  • The player can smoke, drink alcohol, and take fictional drugs. All of these things enhance the players abilities for a given amount of time and then wears off, however the player can become addicted to any one of these things. Getting addicted lowers the players stats until they take the drug again or see a doctor.
  • There are many people that will buy/sell drugs.
  • The player can find a city where there are a ton of junkies.
  • Certain enemies take drugs before a fight or talk about taking them.
  • The player does have the option, however, to not take a single drug throughout the entire game.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • If this game was a movie, it would be rated R for strong sci-fi violence/gore, disturbing images, language and drug material.
  • Not recommended for anyone under the age of 16 years old.
  • The game can be very violent but because of the rarity of the violence and the overall lack of other mature content with significant impact, it can be played by older teens (16+)
  • There is an are called the Glowing Sea where there is a very scary atmosphere and also many scary creatures like Radscorpions
  • Bumping into a shopping cart which is way louder than almost anything else in the game WILL scare almost every player, no matter how old or young they are
  • Fallout 4 is a first person shooter and open-world action role-playing game that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. The player takes on the role as the "sole survivor" who has emerged from a large underground bunker, known as a "Vault" after 200 years. The player character sets off to explore a world that has been destroyed by the nuclear war and to avenge their dead spouse and find their kidnapped child.
  • The entire game, just like the rest of the Fallout series, revolves around a post-nuclear future in which America is now an apocalyptic wasteland (the game takes place in Boston and its surrounding areas)
  • There are certain enemies that are scary.
