Top 25 RPG Countdown, #12: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

John Learned joins Kat and Mike Williams to add Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic as #12 in our Top 25 RPG Countdown! We discuss how it popularized BioWare, and is still one of the best Star Wars sandboxes.

Episode Notes

With a week to go before Red Dead Redemption 2 finally arrives, I’m back to my neverending quest to finish Persona 5. I discuss that, Mother 3, and KOTOR with Nadia, Mike, and special guest John Learned in this week’s episode of Axe of the Blood God!

I’ve said this before, but one of the tougher aspects of my job is that there are too many games. I know that’s the definition of a first world problem, but it tends to result in me getting dragged away from longer games if I don’t happen to be reviewing them. Hence my year long quest to actually finish Persona 5, which I still like very much, but rarely get to play. I share a progress update with Nadia, and we also talk about her recent tribute to Mother 3.

In the second segment, we’re back to the Top 25 RPGs of All Time! This week we add Knights of the Old Republic to the list with the help of Mike and John Learned, who talk about the first RPG to really popularize BioWare RPGs, and why it’s still one of the best Star Wars sandboxes around.
