Knights Of The Old Republic Is STILL The Best Star Wars Game

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.
