This may be an unpopular opinion, but I marinated on the E3 showing last night, and I now don't think I will be playing/buying 76 at all. And this is why: Nukes.
The idea of going out and facing the wasteland after a nuclear event almost served as a subtle warning of just how bad things can be in previous games. In Fallout 3, there was a real effect on the way NPCs treated you. If you decided to use the nuke, it was a moral choice that had consequence in game, that would make your game more difficult if you decided to use the nuke.
In Fallout 76 it will be ok, even encouraged for you to go out, find the launch codes, and erase your opponents from existence. Only now, it will not be random NPCs, it will be real people on the other side of that nuke, and the consequences will be nil, in fact, you will be rewarded with special treasures.
I know, its just a game. To the well adjusted player, it is just a game. Nobody is going to go out and nuke their neighbor after playing fallout 76. However, (particularly in America) allot of online gamers are not really well adjusted to the real world, and identify themselves more and more with an online persona than a human persona. This might just not be a healthy idea to put into the minds of developing humans who 'live' online.
