Fallout 4

Fallout 4 is a first-person RPG set in a post-apocalyptic universe. In a devastated world, you play a lonely character trying to survive among deadly creatures and humans ready to do whatever it takes to stay alive.

Fallout 4

Developed by Bethesda Softworks, the company behind The Elder Scrolls saga, Fallout 4 is full of things to do. While you have the main quest storyline to progress in the game, you can also spend hours exploring the world devastated by bombs, visit buildings to find some loot, talk to NPCs, build a shelter or craft equipment.

If you like RPGs and are not afraid of a post-apocalyptic world, Fallout 4 will keep you busy for hours.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

Horizon: Zero Dawn is an action-RPG set in a wonderful open world. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world, but unlike Fallout 4, there are no ruins to explore. Mother Nature claimed back her lands, and your character roams through forests, mountains, and many splendid natural landscapes.

The main character, Aloy, is a skillful hunter who can use her agility, bow skills and intelligence to unveil this new world’s mysteries, while keeping an eye on the ones she cares about.
