I’ve been playing NieR: Automata for a few weeks, and I have no plans to stop anytime soon. It’s incredible. But you didn’t come here for my opinion. You came here because you’re interested in what “Shakespeare with Robots” means. Before we get to the production proper, a bit of setup. NieR: Automata (there, I’ve given both pronunciations, so please don’t correct me in the comments) takes place thousands of years into the future where androids live on the moon and essentially do the bidding of the few remaining humans.

In celebration of our soda bottle half-full lives, me and 2017 have decided to take a bit of time to share the best video games we’re experienced in all of this first half of 2017.
