The player has to complete a series of quest (in each of the six acts) that include of course, battling some monsters. It takes place after the first game in the Sancturary world.

Fallout 2: A post nuclear role playing game

It features a larger and more extensive storyline than the first game: Fallout, although it didn’t really improved much. The game sets in the year 2241, in this post-apocalyptic world. And the protagonist, who happens to be the descendant of the hero on Fallout; has to find an environmental restoration machine in order to save his tribe.

Theme Hospital

In this hilarious and silly game, players design and run a hi tech hospital. But everything in there is crazy, it includes patients that vomit in waiting areas, the grim reaper walking down the halls, and patients dying in the corridors. It has all sort of fictional illneses like KingComplex. As the manager of the hospital you have to find the cures for all these diseases and all the craziness that comes from that search.


This list wouldn’t be complete without this game, which is why we had to include it. 


Because who doesn’t love a good old western theme game, right?
