A spoiler-free discussion about arguably the best game of the 2010s.

When you think game of the decade usually titles like Breath of the Wild and Persona 5 come to mind. On this episode of The Thirsty Mage, Jordan and David discuss why Nier: Automata should be in that conversation.

On the panel:

  • Thirsty Mage Host - David Lloyd
  • NWR Reviews Editor - Jordan Rudek

It's so bizarre Square-Enix haven't ported this to Switch yet. If it's even remotely feasible, they should do so imo.

Agreed, I’m curious if there is a technological limitation involved. At the same time, it seems that Square Enix games are only brought to Switch if Nintendo decides to publish it themselves so maybe Nintendo did a pass on this one.

My experience playing Nier: Automata a few years ago was transcendent.  The characters are well-developed by the end, the story is a roller coaster of emotions, and the music is spectacularly applied to the different sequences of the game, not to mention just being outright beautiful. 

It made me feel hollow like few truly great games do for me, where despite devouring it I wanted to jump back into a new save and start over despite devouring it the first time, chasing the feelings from it that I know won't hit the same now that I've experienced it.

Fun listen.
