    Hello, NMA.

    I've been playing way too much Fallout 1 and 2 lately, and I quite like the gameplay, the feel, the look, the atmosphere, the writing, and everything.

    Are there any Isometric RPGs out there (Preferably on Steam), that are as dark and as good as these games, and have the same... "Feel" to them?

    Thanks.

    Closest thing to them are Wasteland 2, Underrail and Age Of Decadence.

    Wasteland 2 for the post-apocalyptic atmosphere, Underrail for its combat system and gameplay mechanics and Age Of Decadence for the choice and consequence with story and character builds.




    Then there's ATOM RPG which I personally didn't care for when I tried it during Early Access but I have no idea how it is now when it is released.


    [edit]

    Oh and all of them are post-apocalyptic.
    Underrail takes place underground and Age Of Decadence is almost literally back to the stone age.

    [edit 2]

    Then there's a few other recommendations that, I suppose have some inspiration off of the old Fallout games but I wouldn't call them anything close to spiritual successors. Like Dead State and Divinity: Original Sin and if you want a cRPG that isn't Fallout-esque at all but still damn good there's always Shadowrun Returns and Dragonfall.

    Thank you so much for all of these amazing recommendations, and for taking the time to state which game excels at what aspect. Thanks.

    Age of Decadence to my understanding has a steep difficulty curve, so go into it ready to get wrecked.

    Also play Pathfinder Kingmaker. It's probably the best cRPG i've played recently.

    It's decision-making porn. The choices and consequences equivalent to a money shot.

    Wasteland 1 is a good game as well. I prefer to Wasteland 2 but I liked both of them enough to say you should play them. Wasteland 2 usually comes with 1 if you buy it. I'm not sure if there's a difference in the editions on GOG or Steam though.

    ATOM is a really good CRPG. It's basically Soviet Fallout. It's pretty cheap on Steam so I would recommend giving it a try.
