It was already planned for the Black Friday digital sale even before launch, so no, it doesn't confirm that it bombed. 

If we see the physical version drop below $60 on Friday then we can call it a bomb, as no sale on Fallout 76 was advertised for black friday at any of the retailers, which would mean the retailers added it at the last minute to clear out excess stock.

I have no idea how you can praise GoW and F76 in thd space of a year. It's good that  you're njoying it, it means you aren't one oc the unlucky many but c'mon man. Standards. Have some standards.  

I'm a Fallout fan and I went in with appropriate expectations (expecting a AA multiplayer Fallout game by a new, untested developer), it's as simple as that. Do I think it's amazing and that it deserved some award nominations at The Game Awards next month? No, of course not (well maybe a best soundtrack nomination because Inon Zur killed it, easily one of the top 2 soundtracks I have heard this year). But neither do I think it is terrible like the critics seem to, I'd say it's at least above average. It's far from the best game I have played this year. but that doesn't mean it is bad because I have mainly played good-amazing games this year (DragonBall FighterZ, Far Cry 5, God of War 4, Detroit, Spider-Man, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, AC Odyssey, RDR2), but I am enjoying it more than a few other games I tried this year like Monster Hunter World and Sea of Thieves (neither is bad per se, they just weren't my type of game). 

It's also worth noting that I rented Fallout 76 from Gamefly, if I had paid $60 for it like every previous Fallout and Elder Scrolls game since TES 4 in 2006, I would probably be a bit more disappointed than I am.
