The Outer Worlds might be my game of the year. It’s got everything I like in a game and little if anything that I dislike. The gameplay is similar to the more recent Fallout games which makes sense since Obsidian made Fallout: New Vegas – possibly my favorite installment in that series. The explorable areas in The Outer Worlds are smaller than a Fallout or Skyrim, which I actually quite enjoyed because it made the game feel more focused and less overwhelming than some open world games.

The story is funny and compelling, a really great blend of soft sci-fi
