If you love RPGs but are tired of swinging swords or slogging around in spacesuits, you're in luck. Obsidian Entertainment is drawing on its Fallout and Planescape: Torment roots with its new espionage-based game Alpha Protocol. Drawing on the three J.B.s for inspiration-Jack Bauer, Jason Bourne and James Bond-the developers are giving players plenty of different ways to tackle problems. You can rely on brute force, stealth or gadgets to accomplish missions, and also navigate through a nuanced conversation system.
A modern-day espionage thriller that will change the way you think about Role-Playing Games.
