I put this game off for a long time because it has a pretty poor fan translation. There is a team working on a better one, but the timing worried me—I wanted to finish Zero (and its sequel, Ao) before Cold Steel 3 comes out later this year. So, I stopped waiting and powered through the old fan translation.
And it actually went okay, mostly! It certainly wasn't well written, but I could at least understand everything. I can count on my fingers the number of lines that came out as total nonsense.
2017 was a wild year for video games. I haven't played all of these, but I've at least heard someone describe every one as "one of my favorite games ever" (or even "my favorite," straight-up):
Assassin's Creed Origins, Breath of the Wild, Doki Doki Literature Club, Hollow Knight, Horizon Zero Dawn, Nier: Automata, Night in the Woods, Persona 5, Resident Evil 7, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, What Remains of Edith Finch, Yakuza 0
