Set in a post apocalyptic world, the protagonist, Nier, sets out to cure his daughters illness called The Black Scrawl. He roams the world with two allies completing mercenary work and fighting mysterious monsters known as Shades.
The fire is fading. Darkness creeps across the land. The Lords of Cinder charged with watching over the First Flame have abandoned their thrones. The Champion of Ash, an undead is chosen to return them to their thrones.
A traveler enters Yharnam and discovers that the city has been plagued by a disease related to a so-called "miracle cure" which has turned a lot of its people into horrifying creatures simply known as "beasts."
In a primitive tribal world where strange, monstrous, animalistic machines roam the wilderness, a brave young female warrior goes on a quest to learn the truth about her mysterious origin and the state the world is in.
As a software developer in the Computer Age, a hack and slash RPG about fighting for mankind against machines was an easy sell to me.
You should play this game if you:
Enjoy an amazing story. The playable and supporting characters are well developed and follow incredible arcs.
Enjoy philosophy. I personally think reading a philosophy book is a waste of time. Luckily, you don't have to suffer through any dry book here. You will play through and experience several major philosophical themes throughout the game. If there exists a more philosophical game, please let me know!
