Roberto Spiralli: I feel like Valkyria Chronicles will get lost in the shuffle for a lot of people but there should absolutely be more games like this. It’s the kind of thing that they used to make in the old days, when everything looked like shit so programmers had to really put some creative effort in to make their title stand out. VC is a turn based shooter and the basic mechanics are pretty much perfect: at once simple and complex, easy to play but with genuine strategic depth. There is a compelling story with a great cast of characters that gives the gameplay context; the game is basically a complete counter-point to MGS4 in this regard. It really is a beautiful game to look at and a joy to play.
