My personal favourite game of all time. Is it flawless? No, of course not. But the characters are all so fleshed-out, the lore has a great mix of tragedy and action, and the combat is engaging. It doesn't get repetitive or boring, which I have found to happen in some turn-based strategy games. Verdant Wind is probably the weakest route, but that's just a humble opinion coming from someone who prefers the dark and brooding side of things. There's nothing factually wrong with it. Overall, there's a sense of reality among the game, covering real-world topics such as societal hierarchy, generational trauma, and...finding the will to live? Well, that got relatable fast.
