The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (Eiyuu Densetsu: Sen no Kiseki)
And wow, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is amazing in every way. Yeah the combat is perfect but I always have been more of a story-player , to get into the skin of the characters and feel their emotion. That being said, I really enjoyed the combat system which feels fresh and rewarding. Probably the world 'slow burner' has been invented for this game, it takes a while to really grip your attention. Not that it isn't interesting from the start but after 20-25 hours of gameplay there is now way you can put down this game anymore. The story gets intense, brilliant flashbacks put soul into the characters and slowly each and everyone of them is an emotional being instead of a pixel related character that uses his S-break to defeat a powerful enemy. I didn't even said a thing about the soundtrack, damn that is great as wellm every single track, from quiet background music to stronger beats during battle simply seem to belong to this game. It creates a perfect atmosphere to totally get lost in the story and see where it is heading.
