Developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts in 2009, Dragon Age: Origins is a hardcore, third-person Role-Playing Game in the style of Knights of the Old Republic (also developed by BioWare), Vampire: the Masquerade – Redemption, and Neverwinter Nights.
The fourth Fallout was released by Bethesda in 2015, some seven years after Fallout 3, and five years after Fallout: New Vegas. In fact: I would call this the fifth Fallout game, because Fallout: New Vegas was more than just game number 3.5, in my humble opinion – it was the best game in the entire series. But anyway… What do I know?
Icewind Dale II is an Infinity Engine-based RPG released by Interplay in 2002. This sequel was developed by Black Isle Studios and was the final game to be developed for the Infinity Engine.
The second of two Baldur’s Gate II titles, this one released by Interplay in 2001. Throne of Bhaal is a real-time Role-Playing Game, based on the BioWare Infinity Engine, and it completes the main plot of the Baldur’s Gate series of games.
Fallout: New Vegas really is the game Fallout 3 could have been. Don’t get me wrong: I quite liked Fallout 3 (and loved Fallouts 1 & 2), but the storytelling and decision-making in Fallout 3 I felt left a LOT to be desired.
In Fallout: New Vegas, if you really wanted to be bad, you could be very “bad”. And, this game being set in Las Vegas (and the surrounding desert), there is plenty of scope for being VERY bad.
And there is also plenty of scope for getting yourself killed, and for killing other people too. In Fallout: New Vegas, life is cheap, and the weapons are even cheaper…
In short, Fallout: New Vegas is a Role-Playing and shooting classic. Cazadors, deathclaws, Glowing Ones… They are all now part of gaming folklore.
