Glory to NieR: Automata
20 May 2018 | by ddangmanSee all my reviews

As a software developer in the Computer Age, a hack and slash RPG about fighting for mankind against machines was an easy sell to me.

You should play this game if you: Enjoy an amazing story. The playable and supporting characters are well developed and follow incredible arcs. Enjoy philosophy. I personally think reading a philosophy book is a waste of time. Luckily, you don't have to suffer through any dry book here. You will play through and experience several major philosophical themes throughout the game. If there exists a more philosophical game, please let me know!
