Ever since action-RPG Nier: Automata from Square Enix released in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC (June 2018 for Xbox One), it has been winning a flurry of awards and accolades, and is held in very high regard by fans alike. However, this award winning game almost never came to be, because the games director and screen writer, Yako Taro disliked waking up early in the morning.

Can you imagine a world in which Nier: Automata doesn’t exist? A game widely considered being one of the best of its genre in recent times; it’s not worth thinking about! But do let us know your thoughts across our social media channels
I can totally agree with him on this one.
