the story and characters in this game are world-class for the medium. Why did no one give a shit?

      first playthrough is genuinely enjoyable

      collecting all weapons to get the rest of the game is not. Why the FUCK didn't they change that? It wouldn't be so bad if most sidequests weren't trolling

        Nah even the first playthrough is a slog, it's just endlessly running between the same few locations talking to people with a bit of mashing combat in the middle, the game barely has more gameplay than a visual novel

      I love the music, the setting, the characters but the actual gameplay puts me to sleep.
      I do like 2 quests that are me running across the map to deliver or do some random thing then I save and call it a day. It is just boring.

        They went over board with the sidequests being all meta commentary on sidequests in rpgs, this would be fine if you didn't NEED TO DO THEM TO GET THE WHOLE GAME

        FUCK

      I disagree, the remaster made fighting things feel really nice.

        The basic combat for the remake is such a step up from the wonky 3-hit combos of the original. The problem is that it barely has any depth even if it does feel nice to play. Despite being an "upgrade", it hardly incorporates any of the new ideas that Automata brought over like instant switching between pod programs. You can use only 3 sealed verses at once if you want to be able to dodge and can play without blocking.

      The characters are atrocious.

      This. It's insultingly repetitive.

      >music
      They butchered it in the remake. They basically destroyed the percussion (one of the most original and interesting aspects of the music in the first place,) and emi's re-recorded harmony's lack the emotional punch of her original takes.

    It's a mediocre remake and it came out the same week as Resident Evil 8 which got mainstream attention pre-release.

    I think the anime dollification of the characters didn't mesh well with the tone of the game as well as the original artstyle. And Papa Nier best Nier.

    Because its a very boring, repetitive and over padded game with awfully designed "secondary" quests a bunch of which are mandatory if you even want to try to get the full story of the game

    The only character that was particularly interesting was Kaine. Nier is so single-minded in his goal that there isn't really any nuance to his character. Emil is depicted as such a pure, innocent, cinammon roll of a character that you can tell as soon as you meet him that he's going to meet a tragic end just tear at your heartstrings.

      Literally the only remix that sounded worse was "Gods Bound by Rules."

            They could have. Very easily. By having an option to choose the original music.
