The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #24: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy

2 mins read
The tree is up, the lights are on, the stockings are over the fireplace and everyone’s getting into the eggnog. It’s Christmas and it’s the best time of year.

Nothing beats Christmas; it’s the time for fun and play, for family and friends. It’s the chance to get away from work and reset the batteries. And, of course, it’s the perfect time to knock off some of those games that you just haven’t been able to get around to.

As is tradition for Digitally Downloaded we’re going to count down the 24 games of Christmas – one a day for each day from December 1 through to December 24. The fun, the silly and the crazy, these games have been custom picked by the DDNet editorial team to give you plenty of ideas for stocking fillers, games to play with family and friends on Christmas Eve, or games you should use the extra time over the holiday to get stuck into.

Day #24: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy

I know our American friends won’t be able to play this until next year, but Christmas is as much a time to be inspired as anything else, and Bravely Default is a very inspiring game.

Not because it’s emotionally or intellectually engaging; it’s actually a very simple game and relies more on nostalgia than anything else. But where Bravely Default excels – and inspires – is in understanding the sheer entertainment value of a good JRPG and really honing in on that experience.

From the incredible combat system, to the entertaining character customisation and wealth of hidden bonuses, Bravely Default is a sheer delight from start to finish, and that’s precisely why we’re recommending that everyone grab themselves as soon as possible – whether that be Christmas now, or at some point next year.
