Next is our Call of Duty review. CoD returned to form with it’s latest installment, Modern Warfare. Much like it’s name sake, Modern Warfare gives you an expansive campaign that explores warfare in our times. You also get the multiplayer that made CoD a house hold name and one of Activision Blizzard’s tent pole franchises.
Lastly is Outer Worlds. Obsidian Entertainment brought the heat with this answer to Fallout. They developed Fallout 1 and 2 then made Fallout New Vegas. Needless to say, they new what they were doing. With Outer Worlds, they took a familiar formula and perfected the game play, art design, and story. So basically everything. This plays much faster and almost feels lighter than simialr games. It’s Time Dilation aim assist is what VATS should be. The design of this world and it’s inhabitants is stunning. Bright and full of life. And the story has you truly weighing your option with no clear path. No black and white, all grays.
