It was a struggle getting into The last thought series, we turn the usual anti-twisting of old traditions into a story of a star-studded techno-thriller with shallow flaws. To this day, fans react in a dramatic way to the call. When I look back ten years later it produces a game with scars, but it also deserves a re-enactment.

I wouldn't argue with anyone who says it's hard to play against him. XIII introduced a great program called Fabula Nova Crystallis, so the game had to set up a lot of detailed and detailed backstory and lore, most of which was explained by data entry. Because of this, the main secrecy of the plot, which included the idol-like equipment charging the characters of the game with seemingly impossible desire, was dismissed after jargon that was often misinterpreted.
