#36 NieR: Automata
As someone who has never played Nier this was a brand new experience for me. I bought it a few months ago during one of the sales without really knowing if I would like this game or not. I heard so many great things about Nier Automata that I just wanted to see it for myself. Lately I have been loving more and more of games from the Japanese market, so I tought why not?
The first few hours I had no clue what the game was about... the different game genres, the weird story... but after 5 hours or so it really grabbed my attention from that point to the end of the game. I couldn't stop playing. The Story is definitely a highlight of the game. It is unique and told in an emotional way. Multiple playthroughs are a neccessity to get the whole picture. During my first playthrough as the completionist that I am... I went and did all the side quests that were available, there were some amazing quests that added depth to the story.
The combat was pretty fun too. I read complaints online that the combat isn't fun but for me personally it was. I prefer the lighter weapons for fast attacks and with the assistance of the pods it is a nice mix of face to face and ranged combat.
The music is just wonderfull it has been said many times but the diversity of the tracks really makes a great tracklist.
I must agree with the critics and the praise here. This game is amazing. The story, the different gameplay elements, the music. Definitely can recommend if you are open minded for a different experience.
