The Outer Worlds
We didn’t know what level to set our expectations for The Outer Worlds but we ended up being a whole lot more than pleasantly surprised. The Outer Worlds is the Fallout game we’ve been waiting for since Fallout 2. It’s often amusing, always self-aware, and its planet hopping nature lends a sense of adventure which called to mind the glory days of Mass Effect. Obsidian may have played it safe with The Outer Worlds but the end result is consistently captivating and, at long last, an RPG which doesn’t grossly outstay its welcome. As the months tick by, Microsoft’s acquisition of Obsidian seems an increasingly wily move.
