Survival aspects are quite fitting when it comes to the Fallout universe. I'm not a big fan of that kind of hassle, but it's too much a part of the setting to ignore.
But when it comes to what I want from FO4 - I want a much more challenging experience overall. That includes starting out as a weakling - and SLOWLY growing in power, very much like a Gothic game.
Their approach to open world makes this a very challenging task, because they're targeting a very large audience - and they want to make sure casual gamers don't feel overwhelmed.
So, they should put more work into their difficulty levels - and stop simply scaling numbers. Include a "true" hardcore mode that isn't just about survival - but about combat challenge and mechanics in general. Something for the fans that made Fallout such a success in the first place.
