Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga

Digital Devil Saga is perhaps Shin Megami Tensei’s boldest venture to date—here, you are the demon. Eschewing the more straightforward dungeon crawling and monster raising mechanics the franchise is known for, Digital Devil Saga is a streamlined story-based game that takes place in a post-cyberpunk wasteland where six warring tribes are branded with a mark that forces them both into cannibalism and emotional epiphanies. Digital Devil Saga’s quality as a single-player adventure is on par with its contemporary Nocturne and serves as a stark reminder of the freedom and weirdness we’ve lost since the PS2 era. It’s a melancholic gem.
