You know, I feel like 2017 was a good year for video games. We had:

  • Yakuza 0′s success led to the series increase in popularity.
  • Nier Automata gave Yoko Taro the recognition he deserved.
  • Do I need to say anything about Persona 5? That game was oozing with style.
  • Nintendo knocked it out of the park this year. 
  • Two Falcom games released this year & two of them got really good PC ports.
  • Speaking of PC Ports, two Platinum games, Vanquish and Bayonetta, are now on PC.
  • Akuma, Geese, and Noctis all canonically exist in the Tekken Universe. 
  • Cuphead finally released after and got the acclaim it deserved.

All in all, 2017 was a blast in terms of video games.

The actual tales game: Everything you love is dead, life is a hopeless, frantic circle going nowhere. Are you ready to embrace the world that betrayed you? Your enemy is the government holding strings everywhere. You will not survive and if the slim chance holds that you do, your existence will not be thanked or remembered. Are you ready to take on the responsibilites of the sins of human nature?
