Hardcore Gamer: Spoiler alert: we love NISA. Whether its our magazine covers their games graced, the strategy guides we worked on or the thousands of articles we’ve written about their games, there’s little doubt that they hold a special place in our heart. That being said, there’s no secret that they don’t exactly produce the best reviewed games. That’s not to say that they’ve produced many “bad” games, but the appeal for many of their titles is extremely niche, making it hard for the games to reach above an 80/100 average. Bursting out of the gate in 2014, however, NISA has bucked the trend.
