Maybe it's my childhood spent playing tabletop RPGs, but I've never been interested in min-maxing. Even in single-player games like this one, I tend to sort of roleplay. I'm several hours into Fallout 4 now (60? 70?), and I've no idea where I am in the storyline. I think I'm supposed to be building something that will help me find The Institute. I've spent a lot of time just exploring and doing side missions. I walked across the bottom of Lake Cochichuate last night, but couldn't see very much. I'm going to try fitting the bright headlamp to my armor and see if that helps.
