Finished this game for the third time in January(last time I played it was 1999) and it`s still one of the best games ever. This is a game with depth. Not a crappy teen bam bam game like: cod, gow, gears, skyrim, halo, killzone, gta, me.
The story is so complex I had to read an analysis twice to get it right because of all the fantastic references throughout.
Glory to Tetsuya Takahashi; a genius.

Indeed. This game made me become interested in important topics such as philosophy and psychology, religions and life without gods.

I went about to study those subjects in Uni and even visited the game creator's home country and stayed there for years because I was interested about the environment one can create such inspiring stories.

This is a game that truly changed my life. It's deep, engrossing and extremely intelligent. And that's what I'm trying to become because of it.

xenogears was and still is a masterpiece. I was relatively young when I finished my 2 playthroughs, would be interesting to finish it again to see how the story holds up
