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.

Waste­land 2

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.
