In simple terms, we can describe Fallout 76 like a tacky tragicomedy. It is no secret that it debuted in that distant 2018 with a lot of technical problems, while some design decisions also failed to connect with the audience. All of this resulted in the obvious: a critical and commercial failure. Since then, it seems that stores are doing their best to get rid of the game.
In 2019, the case of a GameStop store in Germany that gave away copies of Fallout 76 to all customers purchasing used controls. This juicy promotion, however, cannot be compared with that of a French store.

As highlighted by the reddit user savunup in a recent publication, a department store in France sold copies of the JeuxVideo magazine, valued at € 4.95 EUR, which included free copies of Fallout 76. Apparently there were about 10 packages available when the user took the photo.
The comments on the post were what we might expect. Of course, many players took the opportunity to express their dislike for the RPG and poke fun at it. However, there were those who defended it and claimed that, thanks to the updates it received in recent years, it has already managed to redeem itself and is already a worthwhile product.
The people who defended the game have a point. Despite criticism and commercial failure, Bethesda did not abandon the project and in recent months released multiple updates that added a lot of additional content.
But tell us, did you play this multiplayer title? Do you think he deserved to fail? Let us read you in the comments.
