Top 5 Sci-Fi Games and Franchises of all time
5. Outcast (PC – 1999 – Appeal/Inforgrames)
Even if you remember 1999, chances are you still don’t remember this game. Despite being a tremendous commercial flop, Outcast won a lot of critics over with its soundtrack.
Even though orchestra music was a novelty for video games back in the day, its immersion makes it one of the best video game soundtracks ever composed.
Its AI was also very well ahead of its time, being the first adventure game where NPCs would go about their daily business as opposed to just standing around and waiting for them to talk to you. At last but not least, its graphics showed the awesome potential of the voxel engine.
