Last week we revelled in the glory of ‘Should Your Boyfriend Play Red Dead Redemption 2?‘, AKA, the ‘Girlfriend Review’. It’s a game review from someone who is a second-hand consumer of the game, and it’s honestly more insightful (and hilarious) than any other review around.
After fielding an onslaught of requests to review other games from her new legion of fans and followers, our new favourite non-gamer has added another incredible video to her YouTube channel Shelby & Daphne: ‘Should Your Boyfriend Play Fallout 76?’
The ‘Girlfriend Review’ does not hold back when it comes to healthy criticism of Fallout 76’s downfalls, of which I’m sure we are all well aware there is many.
She describes watching her boyfriend play as a nostalgia trip back to 2008, recalling watching him play an earlier iteration of the game. But all is said with a soft kind of love for the game, even when she’s going ham on the many, many, visual glitches. Apparently they are a great source of entertainment.
“I think a mutual hate for something can be really powerful and romantic,” she says, “So i give the graphics in Fallout 76 an A+, for really bad.”
The musical ode to Todd Howard acting like “video game Jesus” before the anticlimactic release of Fallout 76 is perhaps the most beautiful, insightful part of the video, and we await eagerly for her next review.
