At long last. Fallout 76 is finally out and in “the place [it belongs]” (AKA, our shelves) – and we don’t think we could be more ready.
Since first watching the official trailer at Bethesda’s E3 conference earlier this year, we’ve been desperate to get our hands on the next installment of the Fallout franchise: satisfying ourselves, in the meantime, with back-to-back replays of “Take Me Home, Country Roads”.
We’re sure you’ve heard of it.
“Country Roads” (which appears on the trailer and in-game over the radio) has become the official hype-track of Fallout 76 for its fans – and, as with most things that are popular nowadays, a ton of juicy memes have been made to honour it.
Once just a wholesome country tune, John Denver’s classic has officially stolen the Internet’s hearts (including ours) we’ve put together a few of our favourite Fallout 76 memes.
1. This one which describes literally everyone’s reaction after watching the trailer.
2. The one with the… “passionate” birdsong…
3. … and the animated version…
Even more beautiful. *Sob.*
4. This one, which is actually a real-life playlist.
We’re forever grateful, Joe Mag.
5. And this one, which preeeetty much sums up every single one of us.
6. This one, which illustrates “Country Roads” total domination of the internet.
7. This one with everyone’s favourite tortured seagull.
Sing (/scream) it with heart.
8. This one with the appropriate road instructions.
West Virginia? Yes yes, right this way.
9. This one with the sleepless nights.
It’s the perfect lullaby.
10. And this one, where we call out the secret service for spying on us.
And now for listen 7,995!
11. And this one – which is actually just the song looped for 10 hours.
Because what else are going to fill our time doing while we were waiting for release day?
So there you have it. The Internet in all its ridiculous glory delivers once again. Whether or not Fallout 76 will be a commercial success is another question – gamers will ultimately be the judge of that – but no matter what happens, we’ll always have our “Country Roads” memes to look back on.
