A few months back I finally got around to watching Digimon Adventure tri in full and thus got it in my head that I would like to play a Digimon video game because I was reminded of all those good nostalgic feelings. Steam tells me that I played Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth for about 50 hours, which is at least 40 hours too many! There is a lot of writing in that game and it is the worst that I've been subjected to in quite some time; as an added bonus, the localization is extra terrible so the writing comes off even worse!
That being said there was enough good in the Digimon raising and battling that I kept playing. I reached a point where I realised that I had absolutely zero investment in the story, which would usually be the part where I give up on a story-driven RPG, but I had heard rumblings that the plot got more focused in the second half of the game. With that carrot dangled in front of me, combined with my pot commitment of ~15 hours and the dumb part of my brain pushing me to keep going till I got the good Digimon, I never stood a chance. So I did what any reasonable person would do - flipped on Cheat Engine and went to town.
To cut the rest of the story short, it was completely not worth it. The story was genuinely worthless and the completionist in me got tempted into beating all the optional super-bosses at the end of the game since I figured I already had access to great Digimon thanks to my nefarious memory-scanning activities. That part ended up being pretty fun since I've always enjoyed working out strategies for 'unfair' fights but on balance I think I still came out with net negative enjoyment.
There's even a whole other game in the Complete Edition that I thankfully convinced myself to not even start. I have heard some chatter about how it's the better written story though...
