NieR Automata - a hot take
NieR Automata is a great game. The world is a well polished End of Days theme park ride filled with interesting mechanics and a great story.
2B, 9S and A2 are designed to be sympathetic heroes attempting to prove to themselves that they are indeed alive.
For all of it’s design aesthetic, the deeper questions being prodded at are somewhat obscured by manditory repetition and cryptic in-game NPC dialogue.
