"BioWare's first RPG on consoles still held on to some D&D vestiges. A well-executed Star Wars pulp adventure that is now overshadowed by its sequel."
Recommended December 9
"Eidos Montreal's well-received revival of Deus Ex fixed the worst mistakes of Invisible War. Decent writing though not as thoughtful as the original."
Recommended December 9
"Unofficial successor to System Shock 2 from Arkane. Play with wacky tools on an alien-infested space station. The best of the modern "immersive sims", despite balance issues and an overlong endgame."
Recommended December 9
"Witcher 2 was basically a beta for its bigger sequel. Simpler and linear, but worth playing for its top-notch writing and famous mid-game plot branch."
Recommended December 9
"Unique turn-based tactical RPG inspired by X-COM & Fallout. Wage war against criminal gangs in a modern day city. Build your base, recruit fellow vigilantes, interrogate the leaders and wipe 'em out."
Recommended December 9
"Remarkably ambitious Infinity Engine-style adaptation of Pathfinder. Gets buggier as you go on, but ignore the reviews - if you were disappointed with Pillars of Eternity, this is the game for you."

"Fantastic remake of Interplay's classic trilogy of dungeon crawlers, with remastered artwork, 3D environments, and a variety of modern conveniences. Play in Legacy Mode for the purist experience."
Recommended August 18
"The Banner Saga trilogy's climactic finale. Features better designed & more challenging combat scenarios and impressive save import reactivity. Play all three games together for the best experience."
Recommended August 18
"Corey & Lori Cole's quasi-sequel to the Quest for Glory series. Take classes, explore dungeons, make new friends, and try to make it to your dorm before curfew. A bit simplistic, but utterly charming."

"Its open world and light-hearted tone make Deadfire an unexpected successor to Storm of Zehir. Better than its predecessor in almost every way despite the removal of traditional resource management."
