Age restriction checkers on the internet are pure Year selection going back to 1900? Sure, Im going to go out on a limb and say theres about a 0% chance there is a 116 year old person looking at games on the Square Enix online

Never played Nier, because I got put off by the different regional versions Would it be worth playing the EU-PS3 one, even though some douche spoiled me on the main twist?
