So, this popped up in my FB feed and one thing struck me as I was reading their list.

 

Every bloody game that Obsidian has made got tossed on this list (minus Alpha Protocol...)

What about Dungeon Siege or the Pathfinder card game?

Any list without AP is suspect. Yeah, gameplay is janky but things like being an unprofessional smart arse dressed in full body armour while meeting Marburg and watching him come to the boil are some of the best actual role playing and dialogue in any game- though of course most won't actually see that on a first play through. The reactivity is minor in most practical respects but the overall impression of reactivity won't be beaten too soon.

 

Speaking of too soon, that thread title...

AP sucked. It is Obsidian'\s worst game that I played. It's not even close. It certainly doesn't belong on an awesomesauce list with the likes of Bloodlines or even PE.

I think this came up in the Random Video Game News thread.

 

My reaction to it was and still is: No Alpha Protocol? GTFO, PCLamer

 

Apologize to the world, you summoned Volourn to this thread by mentioning Alpha Protocol (which btw. is awesome).

Hate the living, love the dead.
