The action RPG is one of the most well-populated (and well-loved) genres in gaming, and The Outer Worlds is one of the best additions its had in the past few years. It's a game that, once you finish it, your sad it's over, but the good news is that there are plenty of other games like The Outer Worlds that offer the same addictive gameplay and awesome storylines. 

If you're wondering what to play after 'The Outer Worlds', Fallout 4 and Borderline 3 are great choices. Both feature similar gameplay while bringing their own unique traits into the mix. And if you’re looking for something a little more linear, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is sure to please.

Vote up the games you'd most recommend to other fans of The Outer Worlds, and add your own picks if you can’t find them below.
