Maybe if I played more Atlus titles that would be different, but I haven't, so I took some time after beating it to reflect on the game I had played and the experience I had before sitting down to write this review. The protagonist is Vincent Brooks, a 32 year old guy that is meandering through life. He has been dating his girlfriend Katherine for about 5 years but experiences a personal crisis when she starts hinting that she wants to settle down and start a family. He’s also started suffering from weird and terrifying dreams at night that he can’t seem to recall when he wakes up. These dreams are the nightmare levels."
