Thank you for telling us your life story. I'm sure everyone on this forum was eager to know.I guess in could compete with Fallout 3.The Outer Worlds wasn't great... it was pretty close though.
Tweak the gunplay to be less Borderlands-ey big numbers, add in some more hand crafted quests rather than by the number RNG locations. It gets there.
Which game was more stupid
I think it's 60% to 70% of the way to being like Prey. Aka, "the Deus Ex genre."
Prey's one of my favourite games of all time. Arkane's action games are a blast. I acknowledge most of RPG Codex has a gigantic hard-on for turn based + RTWP gameplay loops/grid based tactical, rather than Deus Ex style action rpgs. I just like both genres.
I've played RPGs for 20+ years (unfortunately, in many ways).
Games that have really inspired me are Prey, Disco Elysium, Baldur's Gate, Nehrim/Enderal/The Lost Spires, The Endless Mod. Troubleshooter Abandoned Children, Fall From Heaven 2, FF6 + Chrono Trigger + Zelda A Link to the Past, Elden Ring, Faster Than Light. Multiple genres, what I see in them is each game was best in class at writing + character sheet mechanics + excellent, snappy gameplay loop.
The Deus Ex formula is just really really excellent.
