It's been said many-a-time that "This Game" is just Skyrim with guns, or "That Game" is just Fallout in Space etc... Well, The Outer Worlds is all that and it doesn't care what you think about plundering pop culture for kicks. There are numerous nods to other games, sure, but (and I want to emphasize this) not only games. There are references to TV shows, movies, music, books, table-top RPGs, the list goes on, and it's not confined to the SF/F genres.

And like early Elder Scrolls, the voice acting is hit-and-miss.

In short, The Outer Worlds is funny, it's colorful, it's both nostalgic and refreshing at the same time, but most of all it's pure entertainment made by people like us who like the things we like. I feel as though you gotta give credit where it's due, and with this game, it's due.
