Fallout: New Vegas
From the team that later made Skyrim, this massive open-world RPG takes on a modern setting focused on a post-apocalyptic South Western culture. The story follows a protagonist firmly of your own making who has been brutally gunned down by a mysterious man with mystifying objectives. Nursed back to health, it seems you'll be on your own. Before being thrust into the wilderness, you have the opportunity to decide how you want your character to handle himself and how he grows by placing points into certain stats, and then choosing whether or not to give him one or two "perks" which will guide his strengths and weaknesses. Once you're free to roam, you'll have to learn the skills to survive--not to mention those necessary to hunt down the man who tried to take your life, and take his instead.
