Are you a fellow fan of Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR)? If you’ve been around our blog for a while, you know that we have regularly posted about this game and I’ve said myself how it is one of the best, if not THE best Star Wars game to date.
Well, I’m not alone in this opinion. The Star Wars franchise is not putting out as many games these days as they once were, and there is a higher quality demand being placed on the games that do come out. But how do they measure up against a classic like KOTOR?
This is a question that ScreenRant takes head-on in this piece that says KOTOR is STILL the best Star Wars game.
The author, Derek Stauffer says:
Knights of the Old Republic was one of the first Star Wars stories of its kind. It ignored all mention of the Skywalker family and its generation spanning stories. (There’s a tiny reference to the Organa family on Alderaan and that’s it.) There was no using Luke, Leia, or Darth Vader to prop up the story and create fan interest. Knights of the Old Republic created its own world and it matches, if not surpasses, that of the best stories in the Skywalker saga.
Then he goes into the reasons that KOTOR is a great game – the story, the world, the adventure and more. Despite being released over 15 years ago, it remains one of the best Star Wars games (if not THE best Star Wars game) to date. If you never had the chance to play KOTOR when it first came out, it’s worth it to give it a shot today. It still holds up and we think you’ll really enjoy it.
