Day 17 – Most underrated game?
I am gonna break another lance for Dream Daddy here. Yes it’s a visual novel/dating sim and therefore not super mainstream. And yes, it actually got some media attention when it came out – but even that was very limited to quite specific media. Honestly I would rec this game to almost anyone. It is heartwarming, funny, very well written and had a good story. It is trans-inclusive and deals sensibly with several lgbt issues across the board.
And come on, at some point you have a bragging contest about who has the better kid that is literally happening in game in form of a Pokemon battle. Do I really need to say more?
I’m tempted to say “Dragon Age 2” because the reeeeeeally excellent story is often swept under the rug due to their problems with combat and repetition of landscape or Mass Effect Andromeda because of the really undeserved negative press (especially compated to DAI’s undeserved praise) but I really want to bring in some diversity 😉
Can I name a genre rather than a specific game? Then I’d say Visual Novels. I never heard of them before Anna recommended some and now there are at least two I wouldn’t want to miss. Both are still in production (Guenevere and 7KPP) but have brilliant writing, depth and characters.
