I completed this game 2 years ago and I still have dreams about it

The only good video game ever made.

Such a good first entry of the series. I'm happy for a remake.

I'll be honest: the Fauxmericana tone doesn't do much for me, and this is a pretty typical SNES-era JRPG. That said I do appreciate some of the idiosyncratic design choices, and the willingness to poke fun at the player.

A little JRPG that didn't really sell well and had a terrible marketing campaign, its actually a very flawed masterpiece. It has a unique, grounded setting for a JRPG, taking place in a modern urban environment, that gets attacked by space aliens and has a lot of classic JRPG tropes like "the chosen one" and killing gods. The visual style is simple, even for the time, but very charming. Music is fantastic. The writing is legitimately great, there are lots of fun characters that I consistently wanted to speak to everyone to hear what they said. Its a consistently fun game that always surprises you around every corner with its wacky scenarios. The fun factor of the gameplay depends, its fun exploring the towns and seeing the crazy stuff happen and talking to people, but turn based combat isn't very good but it has fun mechanics like the rolling health bar. Many annoyances will drag down this game for so many people. Despite appearing somewhat childish, its great writing and humor, plus the darker elements that go on as the game progresses make it a great game! The final boss is one of the best moments in the game, as well as the whole ending which I won't spoil but it is fantastic. Its makes you laugh but it can also make you feel emotional, and its a great game that didn't get the attention it deserved until years after its release. Please play it blind, thats why I avoided as many spoilers as I could here.
