James Recommends offers game design analysis in a review of Wasteland 2, a modern revival of the game that inspired apocalyptic classics like the Fallout series. It also offers valuable examples of how (and why) certain elements of RPG game design have evolved over the years. Non-interactive dialogue, easily cheated systems, and railroading quest design are all relics of old systems that survived into this new game.
