Xenogears is a JRPG developed and published by Squaresoft. It came out 1998 for the Playstation 1.
The game is about a young man named Fei who lives in the small village of Lahan. But when a squad of robotic war machines called 'Gears' crash land in Lacan an unfortunate event changes Fei's life completely...
The game's most outstanding feature is it's very deep and complex story heavily influenced by Animes like Neon Genesis Evangelion and Ghost in the Shell. It handles topics like religion and human relationship very critical.
Unfortunately Square decided to use some of Xenogears budget for their mediocre 8th installment of Final Fantasy. The result was a major change in story telling from CD1 to CD2. While you play out most of the plot on CD1, CD2's storytelling is more like a book and rushes through the story, unfortunately.
Currently there is no sequel planned, even though many people would appreciate it more than a new fancy, flashy and shallow Final Fantasy.
<Moron> Dude, Final Fantasy 7's story is da best, no game could ever match that!
<Me> Then I recommend you play Xenogears, but it might be too much for your brain.
