The 8 Best PC Action-Adventure Games to Buy in 2018

Best Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi: Fallout 4

Fallout 4 awakens you from your 210 years of cryogenic sleep where a nuclear war has changed the world into a post-apocalyptic landscape. The role-playing, first-person, action-adventure game is set in an open world environment with hundreds of locations, characters and quests.

How will you adjust to the new world? Your wife was murdered and your son kidnapped, so it’s up to you to get updated from your robot butler about what’s going on and where to go. Your character in Fallout 4 is customizable to your liking, being able to choose your physical makeup and attributes such as endurance (so you can run longer) or charm ability that allows you to talk your way out of anything without any bloodshed. The game’s four endings are a result of your experiences and the type of behavior you enacted upon the world and its inhabitants — did you choose to be on the side of the faithful survivors or wind up joining the synthetic humanoids?
