I feel like everyone has a game or two that they think is just phenomenal, a real great time, that also didn’t seem to get a fair shake at all. I’d love to hear the community talk about all these underappreciated games they love, be they games that were painted as “bad”, or that just didn’t get the recognition they deserved. Maybe we’ll convince each other to give the games we love a fair shake or a second try.
Mine is Shin Megami Tensei: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. It seemed like it got good critical reception, but I genuinely think it’s one of the best JRPG’s ever made and people just kinda skipped over it for a few reasons. The combat’s encore system is fantastic and results in crazy long combos if you know what you’re doing, the party is endearing in an incredibly corny way, and it NAILS it’s idol aesthetic. If you still have your Wii U hooked up and can get a copy, I highly recommend it.
