Default Short end of the game (F3)

Is it me or does the main quest seem a little bit on the short side? Fortunately I did a lot of exploring between the different parts of the main quest but I was a little surprised when it all ended

At times the game lacks a bit of depth. I've created five different characters and I enjoyed some differences between these characters and the way they dealt with their environment but I wish some quests were more elaborate.

The main quest is not all there is in the game fortunately. It was a bit short but I found it much more interesting than in Oblivion or Morrowind; at least in Fallout you don't play the Chosen One (this time).

I know how to end the game (I stumbled onto while exploring the Wasteland), but I'm waiting until I explore every place on the map!

Yeah the ending is a bit suddenly and anti-climatic. I was only like level 16 when I finished the game.

The main quest is short. With my third character I decided to play a good guy and I couldn't see any reason for not going after Daddy. Being good I only did a few quests on my way, mainly Those!
Spoiler!


I got to level 16 as well.

Now I'm planning my sixth character and I've found a valid reason why he shouldn't rush into the main quest so I'll be able to explore a lot and then -and only then- do the main quest.
