Is it any good?

The one person I know who's got it said it's far too easy and all the missions are pretty similar.

it’s not without its charms but it’s not bringing much to the table either - i’m 15 hours or so in and wondering whether i should keep going

i haven’t found it particularly challenging but i’m a time-strapped gamer dad now so it’s not really been a problem cuz i can’t be arsed getting killed over and over again in a story-focused game nowadays

(this is a weird thread to be having this convo in btw since it’s not a fallout game and it’s not developed by the people who made fallout 76)

outer worlds is not very fun, the writing is bad (and there's SO MUCH of it) and the shooting is horrible (and there's SO SO MUCH of it)

I like it but I went in with low expectations. Color scheme is pleasing and I think those are truffala plants outside of Edgewater???

Same developer as F:NV though and all reviews I've seen compare it to Fallout.

Problem I have is I just don't have the time to sink 100+ hours into a game these days so 15-20 hour play throughs are more my bag

Much love to any remaining staff from the Fallout 1/2 era, but Outer Worlds looks uh... kinda lame. I guess there’s a push from angry nerds to be all “This is how Fallout SHOULD be Bethesda!” but the gameplay footage I’ve seen has not been enticing.

rockpapershotgun posted some article about how fallout 76 fans were enjoying the new changes to the game and i snarked on twitter fake news there are no fallout 76 fans and for like 5 days there wasn't a single other comment on the rps twitter thread which seemed to validate my assertion but then i guess the 5 players that do still play (and some of whom were quoted in the original article) found my comment and one wrote "there are more players than you have twitter followers" which i certainly hope is true but doesn't say much for the playerbase and then all 5 of her clanmembers in the game i guess posted "you burned him!" gif memes and basically highfived tbph i thought it was extremely cute but i do feel like probably these teens/young adults (idk) would benefit from playing better games.
