The Outer Worlds is finally out, and players are flocking to Obsidian's RPG in droves. Though they were once immensely popular, this generation has lacked role-playing experiences like this, ones which are actually built around player freedom and not just shooting monsters and levelling up guns.
It's a space Bethesda used to absolutely dominate, but their reputation has been - putting it politely - damaged over the past generation, and players have been starved of quality experiences in the genre.
Obsidian haven't only scored an open goal though, they've created a genuinely compelling new universe to explore with their latest game, picking right up where they left off with Fallout: New Vegas.
That said, it ain't perfect. While The Outer Worlds is a great time, it's not exactly the second coming of RPGs, and some of its old-school charms might have been better served staying in the past...
