NieR: Automata: NieR. A work of art and a masterpiece. Arguably one of the best stories ever told and it is told heavily within gameplay. A meaningless war and tale given full meaning with amazing characters, music and gameplay. One of the most immersive games ever and game that wont soon be forgotten. Each playthrough (yes each playthrough is very different from the last) is memorable. A story that completely turns the table and destroys common tropes and is incredibly unforgettable and tragic.
A story about life and the meaning of existence.

Persona 5: A story that explores dark real world themes (Abusive teacher, suicide, depression, black mail and corruption) and dark awakenings. Another amazing story with amazing characters.
