as well as Obsidian being known for creating rather buggy games like Fallout: New Vegas, Alpha Protocol, Neverwinter Nights 2, and KOTOR II

4 of the best games ever released, but who's counting.

If by "best games ever released" you mean top 300 then yes.

I would rank New Vegas, NWN2, and KotOR2 well above 300, personally, but that's up to taste. Considering how many genuinely great games have been released in the last couple decades, even being in the top 300 at all would be a pretty big honor.

Yes indeed! For me, top 300 or so feels just about right for those titles. Alpha Protocol doesnt qualify obviously.

However, when Chumm writes "4 of the best games ever released" it sounds like top 10-20 and that's just not even close. Obsidian is a great developer but still has a little bit left to be among the very best.

Unless, you know, you like their games? Or that is impossible? Those people like the wrong things?

Its like Jeff use to say: "I can see why people would say Halo is the best game ever. But they're wrong."

One of my favorite games of all time is Xenogears. Still, Im not foolish enough to believe its one of the best games ever released.

There is no such thing as liking the wrong things, you know that. But for a game like Alpha Protocol there is just not support enough for such an argument. Kotor2? Bit closer, wouldnt raise an eyebrow if someone ranks that as their personal top 10.

Im just trolling guys. Couldnt care less really. Good talk.

I love Xenogears but you gotta admit that it takes a huge left turn at the second disc. Its like they had this awesome RPG that looked like it could be one of the greatest ever on the first disc and then ran out of time and money. That first disc though was amazing.

This looks just like the original!

Can't wait for my cloth map.

Actually no it does not look like the original .... it looks far far better the original was top down view and green.

What!? Dating sims can't have mechanical scorpions? Well of all the narrow minded things to say...

Oh no, Loveless is attacking the gas station! Someone call Jim West!

So glad I wasn't the only fucked up individual to look at this screenshot and think Wild Wild West.

Agreed. That movie didn't get the respect it deserved...and Kenneth Branaugh alone was godly.

@jakob187: Obsidian is the greatest RPG maker still around. So your opinion is worthless.

They may even go into history as the RPG makers with the greatest unrealized potential.

Cool looking screenshot. I donated money to this game, so am excited to see it chugging along. The flag on top of the gas station seems a little enormous but whatevs.

This will sound crazy but I really really enjoyed disc 2. Its like they left all the wonky platforming behind and said "fuck it, lets just tell the story", and then they did. "Playing" disc 2 is more like reading an interactive story but I loved every part of it. But as you say, the truth is probably that they did run out of money/time and had to cut corners.

You should REALLY play Alpha Protocol.

..Are you serious or just trying to waste my time?

Give me some more info about the key elements that make you like this game so much and I will hunt down/dl a copy and give it a try, honest. Thanks!

Backer here. I hope to see a screenshot soon that shows the combat is still first-person.
