Indecision isn’t normally something that characterises me. I think things through, and then when I go for it, there is no stopping me. Especially in gaming, I normally just listen to my feelings, and go with my gaming mood. Don’t know what to play during my daily commute by train? I just close my eyes and picture myself playing the game I’m doubting, and soon enough I’ll know whether it feels good or not. No obligations, no needing to play a game because it’s not finished yet. Heck, if I’d have to finish each and every game I’ve got, I might as well stop working, otherwise I will never have the time to work at my backlog!
So when I wrote my Game of the Month February blog last week and left my ultimate choice open, that was rare. I was really in doubt: part of me wanted to just keep on playing Persona 4 Golden which was Game of the Month January, but I’d also bought Return to Popolocrois, a Story of Seasons Fairytale for my 3DS and Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth on the PS Vita. I had played both for some hours and I just couldn’t make my choice. Popolocrois has a sweet story, is a good RPG and involves farming and farm animals. Digimon is a game that makes you curious what Digimon you’ll get to evolve, and it has a mystery at the core of it’s story that makes you want more. Both games get excellent scores from the critics: Popolocrois got a 9 out of 10 on NintendoLife and Cyber Sleuth gets a 90 out of 100 on the Vita Lounge.
Since then I’ve kept on playing and getting more insight in both games. And again, I’ve allowed my gaming mood to guide me: I really like both games, though I’ve certainly found some flaws in both. I’ll put up a review here for Popolocrois and Digimon Story soon. But I find that I wánt to play Digimon, curious about the twists and turns the mystery will take. What nefarious plot is there involving Kamishiro Enterprise? And what new Digimon will I eventually get? You’ve guessed it right? I’ve made up my mind: Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is my Game of the Month February!
I am enjoying Digimon too, although I haven’t played it ever since buying Bravely Second. Hope you find the game’s mechanics less confusing now.
It’s starting to grow on me. I’m still on the fence about BS..
