I love RPGs, but I hate them almost as much. I’m into leveling up, getting better items and seeing interesting systems, but I hate all that gravitas and scope. 50 hours of a pathetic girly man trying to overcome his demons while also trying to eliminate the threat of someone equally as girly and demonic? Please.
Recettear has none of that. It’s told from an entirely different perspective and because of that is one of the most refreshing roleplaying experiences I’ve had in years.
