I am beyond disappointed in you gamers at this point.
Xenogears, even while unfinished and rushed out the door (Which resulted in a lackluster second disc), had the most powerful, deep, esoteric and
philosophically thoughtful content of any game every conceived.
What other game pays homage to Soylent Green, Evangelion, Nietszche, Qabbalism, Gnostic Christianity, Science, Nanotechnology, Big Mechs, Anime,
Freud, Carl Jung, Wagner, and so many myriad other nuanced and bottomless details which no other game EVER has dared to tread upon?
Xenogears, for its soundtrack. Xenogears, for its story. Xenogears, for its thoughtful and thought-provoking content.
Final Fantasy 7 tries to be profound, but merely becomes another Final Fantasy.
Civilization is the same every time you play it, and the computer cheats (Provably).
Chrono Trigger? Excellent soundtrack, superb gameplay. Generally fun, but no XENOGEARS.
Chrono Cross was a JOKE sequel, and the gameplay was terrible.
Secret of Mana? Again, excellent Soundtrack, superb gameplay, glorious world to take in; Terrible terrible TERRIBLE ending.
Nothing holds a candle. Xenogears.
Go back and play it again, if you have.
if you haven't, sell your soul to find a copy; oh, and good luck.
