Maybe because it has such PC roots, everyone played the PC version and spoiled it for themselves? Interesting to hear it's such a good game - I don't really know what to make of ARPGs myself, so I probably won't play it though.
I'm going to award some more scores
5 - The Path
From Tale of Tales. These guys rub a lot of people the wrong way, but I think they are the proponents of the true Art game which challenges the way we think (as opposed to something that is sentimental and makes us feel strong emotion). I couldn't recommend this to anyone, and I never want to play it again, but it changed my viewpoint on some things and has stayed with me this last few years.
5 - To the Moon
The original powerfully sentimental non-game. Wonderful stuff.
More later, have to get my tea.
I've just noticed, no Nier
on this list....long may it continue
