I always thought Psycho Pass would make a great game – exciting fights, moral dilemmas and investigating crime scenes all seem like good source material. While the 3D action game I envisioned isn’t coming to pass, we are getting a visual novel, so at least the moral dilemmas are covered.
More hard choices await in our listy of PC’s best RPGs.
I’m not really an anime fan. I watch the odd one every now and then, and I lose interest in most. Psycho Pass held my attention right up until the final twist, however. It’s just great and you should watch it.
If you’re not familiar, Psycho Pass takes place in a world where your traits are utilised against you by the law. Where Minority Report showed a world where future crimes are halted based on the visions of a seer, Psycho Pass shows a world where getting too emotional could see an Enforcer take you out.
Enforcers are the law, but they also have criminal tendencies, hence why they’re so comfortable with killing. However, these are also closely watched and, if they slide too far, they can end up being the next target. It’s good stuff.
Anyway, here’s the trailer:
