Obsidian is known for its many RPGs, but they come in all shapes and sizes. That, and they don't actually have an IP to call their own, so their next game will have to be an entirely new creation. Assuming they get bought by Microsoft, what should their first game on Xbox be?

I'd like to see a spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas, myself. Something that takes the massive open world and mechanics and applies them to a new setting and style with modernized gameplay. They introduced so many good things with New Vegas, best not to let it all die.

Fable would have been the ideal game for them, but as Playground is working on it, it wouldn't be that.

I'd prefer them to make a brand new IP anyways.

An expanded sequel to Alpha Protocol, if they could get the IP from Sega.
I cleared my ignore list. It's both liberating and terrible all at once.

Duh, but as I said what kind? It's not like Obsidian makes only one type of RPG, they come in all forms.

My favourite games by them were neverwinter nights 2 and kotor 2 so hopefully more of that but modern.

I actually don't really like their latest stuff, have playd both pillars 1 and tyranny but I kinda had to force myself to finish pillars and tyranny was just an ok game.
