Automata by Quirkilicious Automata by Quirkilicious
I was reluctant to try another Square published title so soon after being disappointed by FF15, so I was already on the fence about playing Nier: Automata. Ironically what drove me even further away were the gratuitous character designs, so I figured the game just wasn't going to be for me.

However after thoroughly playing it, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The way it utilizes multi-point-of-view storytelling is relatively fresh, every nuanced reveal or sidestory resonates and is handled with care. The overall narrative doesn't suffer too much either and constantly tackles staple Sci Fi themes without feeling very recycled, more than often I was reminded of genre classics like Ghost in the Shell or Akira especially with the game's noteworthy soundtrack.

The gameplay mechanics themselves are rewarding (especially on Hard), it also manages to seamlessly mix between hack n' slash, platformer and shoot-ehm-up elements without sacrificing one for the other, keeping the same "Plug Chip" system to customize your build throughout!

Nier: Automata is much more than it appears 2B (don't hurt me) and it's difficult to appreciate without playing firsthand!

I thought this was a completely new series. Never knew it was a sequel to a spinoff of the drakengard series

This is the best Nier Automata fanart I've found since beating it (as in ending E) yesterday.
But you are still going to hell for that pun ;) !

Gorgeous contribution to the game, mate.
I had a similar experience, the over-the-top character designs were really putting me off. But once I started playing there was no stopping.

This looks awesome. I haven't played it, but I've watched a friend play it. The many different endings is a nice twist.
I actually liked FFXV. It was just rushed after you got to the chapter where LunaFreya deals with the Leviathan though, but visually stunning.
