Well, I just finished XBC1 (DE) for the very first time; it made me a sobbing mess for the last hour or so. Affected me emotionally in a way games rarely do (KH, NieR, occasionally FF… that’s it, really). And friggin Yoko on the soundtrack too. Can’t believe I slept on this game for so long. I enjoyed it the whole way through but wasn’t sure how much it would slip into easy, hollow JRPG tropes in the end. But it hit every note so well, in a way most JRPGs that culminate in killing a god tend to fall short of these days. A perfect JRPG, in my opinion.
Stoked for the rest of the series.
