Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox)

July, 2003 (LucasArts)

This roleplaying classic took the gaming world by storm with its storytelling and new light/dark alignment mechanic. This feature allowed for greater player freedom in shaping their role in the story, giving them more ownership of the ending they received.

In September 2021, a reimagining of Knights of the Old Republic was announced.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Xbox 360)

March, 2006 (Bethesda Softworks/2K Games)

The Elder Scrolls fourth installment was a surefire hit when it was released on the gaming public in 2006, based on Morrowind''s massive open-world success, and its greatness for the time. For example, Sir Patrick Stewart, Lynda Carter, Terence Stamp, and Sean Bean provided everything they needed for the games voice acting. Simply put, the composer''s musical score for Oblivion is the stuff of legend.

Oblivion has been described as an unforgettable masterpiece, and although it may be dated by today''s standards, you must give it a chance if you missed it.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (Xbox One)

May, 2015 (CD Prokekt)

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is another fantastic example of an open-world action-RPG that manages to develop a compelling story. The game has received widespread critical acclaim and many accolades since its 2015 release. It is also one of the best-selling games ever, with over 40 million copies shipped. In fact, it is safe to say Wild Hunt is a modern classic.

Wild Hunt is based on a whimsical italian mythology from Andrzej Sapkowski''s perspective. However, Sapkowski''s involvement was minimal. The games ending(s) are determined by the player''s choices throughout the narrative.
