YouTube video showcases the power of Fallout 4's character creation

If you've ever played a previous Fallout game, you will be no mysterious stranger to the lackluster character creation system. All too often our Mad Max look-alikes end up looking like a lump of badly sculpted clay.

Fortunately, one of Fallout 4's most exciting new features is the overhauled character creation system, which means our Mad Max look-alikes will no longer look like a pile of radiated Ghoul skin! YouTube user 8-Bit Bastard has made a video showcasing how powerful Fallout 4's updated character creation system can be. Recreating recognisable characters from TV shows, games and films -- that look good too.

The video shows the time-lapsed creation of popular characters such as Walter White from TV show Breaking Bad, Lara Croft, John Marston from Red Dead Redemption, and even Will smith at the end. Fresh.

It is clear the overhauled character creator in Fallout 4 is a very powerful tool, and it will be exciting to see what Fallout 4 fans can muster up within the following weeks after release, and beyond.
