THE BEST QUESTS
Just a handful of our favourite Obsidian and inXile games
Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Unwieldy title aside, this is one of the best StarWars games there’s ever been, finding a rich seam of story in the space between the light and dark sides of the Force.
Fallout: New Vegas
You can tell Obsidian’s Black Isle veterans relished having Fallout back in their hands, investing their Mojave wasteland with a uniquely quirky charm and an incredible sense of player freedom.
It can’t have been easy making an RPG in 2014 that feels like a true sequel to a 1988 game, but inXile balanced old and new with style. And how can you not love being able to put skill points into ‘Toaster Repair’?
Torment: Tides Of Numenera
This spiritual successor has big shoes to fill – the original Planescape: Torment is a classic – but impresses with its bizarre setting, unique combat and thoughtfully philosophical dialogue.
