Come one, come all and see The Outer Worlds. Hear the company slogans. See the corporate propaganda. Walk through the slums one day and party in manors the next. Become whatever you want as we wink and say “Corporations, am I right?” But what about the struggle? What about any bite behind the satire? Outer Worlds creates a playground with its themes, turning the corporatist setting into window dressing. It does not force you to address the exceptionalism that fuels both its RPG design and capitalist arguments. Outer Worlds is fun, but does so at the expense of meaningful critique.
