Top 10 Trails from Zero Moments

Similar to Trails in the Sky FC, I believe Trails from Zero to be a massively underrated game by the Trails fanbase. I’ve seen the sentiment that Zero is a boring and uneventful game, but I couldn’t disagree more. It has a relatively self-contained story and is light on the big-time action that make games … Continue reading Top 10 Trails from Zero Moments
