GAMERS! Open World/Fallout Style.. 10:10 - Mar 25 with 905 viewschrisswailes

Help me fill my evenings/lunch breaks on PS4 + an old XBOX 360.

I'm looking for games that are similar to Fallout (i.e. open world, choice based) - a new life to get lost in.

I've Played:
Fallout 3
Fallout NV
Fallout 4
RDR II
Outer Worlds
Far Cry 5 + New Dawn
Far Cry 4 (currently playing through but anticipating the end)
South Park FBW
South Park SoT

Likes:
Immersion
Exploring
Making a home
Choices
Crafting
Collecting
Looting

Dislikes:
Linear story-lines
Unnecessarily animal killing
P2P

Help my brain, which in turn helps you, because it will keep me from here

Thankies.

Skyrim? Probably the most similar to Fallout I’d have thought

Oh good shout. For some reason I've never played it.

Does it still have the immersion factor/meeting people etc?

The assassin's creed franchise has recently evolved into more of an RPG Experience. I played AC Origins which I wouldn't describe as a full on RPG, but had RPG elements such as leveling up, loot, upgrading your armour & weapons. It was a massive game though & Ancient Egypt is a great setting for an open world game.
I haven't played the most recent AC game Odyssey set in Ancient Greece but I have heard that it is even more of an RPG experience, with choices having an impact and branching story lines. It's also meant to be an even bigger game world than Origins.

Yeah it’s pretty much exactly the same as Fallout but with a different texture pack (medieval feel rather than 50s Americana)

Odyssey is excellent and definitely more choice-based than origins.

Everybody raves about Witcher Wild Hunt and I'll give it time, but I'm not that fussed about it so far a few hours in.

A bit left field and doesn’t meet all of your criteria but Life is Strange is half decent. Story can go numerous ways based on the decisions you make (even things that seem insignificant). There’s collectibles in the form of different photo locations you have to find (bad decisions can prevent you getting these also). Storyline is decent and has some plot twists and at the end of each chapter it compares the choices you made with choices your friends/rest of the world made.

Few spin offs of the game too but I haven’t played those. Might not appeal to you but nobody else was likely to suggest it so gives you more choice

All great shouts and adding them to the list - thanks all.

I have played Life is Strange actually and really enjoyed it - forgot about it. Picked up Before the Storm too - but kinda timed out of it.

Have head Bioshock and Mass Effect may be worth getting too?

Slightly different tangent on 'open world' but what about No Man's Sky, or even Elite Dangerous?

I couldn't get into Witcher. But then I can't get passed Destiny 2. Seriously addictive (but then being a FPS, not what the OP is looking for).

I'll second this.

Also the whole Mass Effect series.

If you like turn based combat, Divinity: Original Sin 2.

I used to love Destiny 2. Took an extended break from it playing other games and now I can't get back into it.

I imagine I'd be the same once I broke the habit. There's so much content in it now it's getting ridiculous; it's all on a theme, so can get a bit repetitive but I'm always chasing something.

I love Bioshock but it doesn’t really tick the boxes you’ve said, at least the first 2 don’t. Great games though

One that hasn’t been mentioned is Lost Odyssey - maybe doesn’t tick some of the boxes you list but I found it a brilliant RPG, probably the closest thing I’ve played to FFVII if that’s your sort of thing

GTA 5? Due to how popular GTA online has/did get, some people have forgotten what a great game GTA 5 single player is.

Not sure if you like medieval genre games, if you do then Kingdom Come: Deliverance might be of interest. My daughter played Life Is Strange 1 and 2 and loved those, they are well worth considering as some of the above have already suggested too.

Lots of good shouts.

I need a new game given teh current lockdown- nthing 100% grabbing me at the moment.

Waiting for baldur's gate 3.

You want really open, and have lots of time- EvE Online is like crack. But a steep learning curve, and the social element is essential.
