Seriously RPG’s, stop this. Tropes of amnesia, saying hello to people before robbing every bit of cash crammed & stashed away in their sock drawer and kitchen cabinet, being woken up by your father after a crazy dream. Enough of them. Dear Lord, enough.
I’ve heard loads about the YS series for years – nearly all of it positive, mind – but I never got around to delving for one reason or another, despite older iterations inspiring fantastic temptation along the way.
