The Outer Worlds (Gaming)

So . . .

I think I might be done with this game. I'm not sure I've ever turned around on a game so quickly.

I still don't think it's a bad game by any means, but . . .

I'm on Monarch. Like probably halfway through the series of quests there. I just ran out of steam. I feel like I've seen everything the game has to offer at this point, and I just don't feel like playing any more.

The companion characters are all pretty boring, except for Parvati who I like quite a bit.

The game has a weird tone. It's like Borderlands, but not anywhere near as good. It's trying to be funny and serious at the same time, and it's not really working the way Borderlands does.

I was halfway through a quest to help some people and I realized "I don't actually give a shit about any of this." I like the universe the premise of the universe they're building, I just don't think it's executed particularly well.

It honestly made me wish I was just playing Borderlands. So I bought that instead.
