Good choice. Outer Worlds is the game people should play that loved Fallout: New Vegas. It is VERY entertaining.

FNV was great. Outer Worlds sucked. I quit - I'm guessing - half way through and have zero desire to return to it ever. FNV I played several times. Night and day differences there, man.

When a writing award goes to Outer Worlds when Outer Wilds AND Disco Elysium are finalists..... then it makes you wonder.

Probably because the judges didn't play them.

How did they judge them then? Synopsis only? Because that would be one hell of a sad (and short!) synopsis for Outer Worlds.

Outer Wilds was robbed. Are we sure they didn't just get confused?
Do you have a single fact to back that up?
