The award for longest game title (probably) goes to this game or this game, not including DLC.

If they're smart, they'd give Link only a few rare (if any) lines, but they'll probably make him a chatterbox.

I guess the Link in the new Zelda could be androgynous to let people decide Link's gender, and they won't confirm an official gender.
It'd give people a thing to talk about and bring attention to the series.

You could maybe try going by the dates they were released?

...right, that website's not confusing as all get out to comprehend.

I am curious quite a bit here...but...

-What IS this? What genre? What age range? What mechanics? What...anything?
-Is it finished or just a prototype/demo-prologue? (I keep seeing conflicting answers)
-...why are people so lazy and endlessly use Nordic references for fictional names? That stopped being tolerable a millennia ago.

In a world so cyber and punk it makes Cyberpunk 2077 look like Steampunk 1877...
You're a bartender, and your sidekick is a talking corgi (named Killer) and also your bouncer. The gameplay involves fast paced drink serving action.

Wonderful 101 has co-op, and Bayonetta 2 has multiplayer something, but maybe not co-op.
edit: Trine 2 and Pikmin 3 also have co-op.

Xillia 2 in 2012, which makes the context about yearly releases false.

It depends as here in NA the yearly release has been true since the 'year of tales' was announced.

While true they made no developmental changes with the western releases. Tales of Graces, released in 2009, was the last mothership title before 2011's Tales of Xillia. Thus the comparison to an annualized series like Assassin's Creed is false or unfair.
Sorry for not being clearer on that.

I think the idea may be that with the studio constantly pushing out something major every year, it takes development's attention away from the next big thing that isn't a port.

But anyway, for Rob: play SH2 or you're doing yourself a disservice, then play SH1 and be amazed by the improvements made between them.
SH2 (iirc, besides the director's cut) doesn't have any superbosses that involve min-maxing or exploiting the mechanics to extreme measures, and the twists at the end are pretty damn good/original.
The difficulty is generally right around the level of being challenging but you should be able to scrape by and barely get out alive.
And the only things I imagine you may not like so much about it are the Judgment Ring and dungeon linearity, but they were like that in SH1 so if you didn't have a problem with it then, you should be okay now.
Play it.

I'll never under the reason people call it that, it's a stupid name. Especially because Sony did release an official PSX that wasn't the PS1.

total crap

you're so funny it hurts

...the capital of Selasse, and the signal is faint, but it looks as though Crestee's mother Marta is someplace in the city.

The party makes their way out of the forest onto the world map with the help of Dincrest. The journey is substantial and on the way an airship passes in the opposite direction, towards Sherdal's house. The airship lands outside the forest, long out of sight from our party. Two men step out. The large man named Zidd that interrogated Crestee and imprisoned Alex. The other man being the one with long silvery hair, only without a mask, the one who gave the order to destroy Crestee's village.
These two make a bee line through the woods to Sherdal's house, knocking on the door.
Sherdal: "Who is it?"
????: "An old acquaintance."
Sherdal gasps as he hears the voice and opens the door.
Sherdal: "Varthlokkur..."
Varth: "Varth with suffice. You know why I'm here, right? Make this easy on yourself, and I promise you won't be harmed."
Sherdal: "I still don't think you'll be able to wield it effectively, I can sense it."
Varth: "Then we duel for it. I've waited for this ever since you sent me out on my own. I need the Eye of Spacetime, father."
Sherdal: "Are you prepared for the consequences?"
Varth: "Absolutely. I'll do anything in my power to reclaim what I lost."
Sherdal takes out a longsword, and Varth unsheathes his katana. Zidd merely watches as the duel starts and goes on for well over 5 minutes at the least. It's a close match, and Sherdal puts up an impressive fight for his age, but Varth overpowers him with a well placed thrust. Sherdal is mortally wounded but not dead yet.

Varth and Zidd look through the house for a couple minutes, soon finding the Eye hidden in a vase. They go back to the airship and take off. Varth is admiring the Eye and can't look away. He gives an amused smile that gradually turns sinister, and he breaks out into a sickening laughter.
Zidd: "Sir?"
Varth: "Haahaheheheh... Heeheehee... Hahahha.... bwAAHAHahAeHEEHaHA...."
And suddenly the Eye envelops the entire airship in a brilliant light, until the airship completely vanishes and the Eye falls to the ground. As the light around the airship fades, Varth is still laughing, but Zidd notices three things that seem odd. One is that Varth looks completely disfigured now. He's also never laughed like this at all. Could the Eye of Spacetime have made him go crazy? And the second thing is that the Eye is gone from Varth's hands. The third thing being the landscape around them is vastly different than they knew it. They're 100 years in the future.

Back with our party, Dincrest has a foreboding feeling and demands that they use the Eye to see if something has gone wrong. We see an image of Sherdal lying on the floor of his home, bleeding out.
Dincrest: "FATHER!"
Crestee and Alex gasp in astonishment. Dincrest is running like the wind back to his house, it's quite a feat that anyone can run so quickly.
A brief talk amongst the party in agreement that perhaps they should split up, one group going after Dincrest and one to the capital. Alexandra should probably follow Dincrest as she has a healing spell. Crestee should go to the capital to look for her mom, if not follow Dincrest.

How will you split up the party? Or will everyone go after Dincrest? Will he get there in time?

Grave of the Fireflies, American History X, and the Green Mile are the big three.
Gladiator, Braveheart, and Shawshank Redemption (Brooks) are the second big three.
Interstellar made me tear up slightly.

Inside his home, he offered to make them tea, and across the room they notice a young man practicing with a sword against a dummy. The house seems much bigger inside than it looks outside, and quite cozy also with stairs going down to suggest it has multiple floors.
The old man gestures the party to sit down.
????: "Dincrest, come over and meet these people that have stumbled into our abode."
Crestee is shocked to find her ancestor the hero, Dincrest, in place like this.
Dincrest: "Sorry, father. I got caught up in my training. It's nice to meet you."
????: "I'm (______*). What brings you to these parts?
Leona: "We had to find a friend, this girl over here in fact."
Alex: "She's my sister, but she doesn't seem to remember me, or anything from our time."
????: "Hm? Your time?"
Leona: "Uh oh, maybe that was a mistake."
Alex: "Never mind. Umm."
????: "I suppose you must have the Eye, then."
Roko: "Whaaat? Never heard of it."
????: "The Eye of Spacetime? You must be living under a rock if you haven't heard of it."
Dincrest: "It's terrible, all the major countries in the world are fighting for it, because they're power hungry."
????: "Don't worry. Even if you have it, we won't try to take it from you."
Alex: "Okay then, uhh, yeah we have it."
????: "So when did you come from? And why?
Crestee: "100 years from now. I'm lookin' for my mom. I guess she ended up here after touching the eye. My hometown was destroyed by an airship, and so now all I really have left is my mom."
Alex: "As we came back in time, we saw my sister with the Eye, whom we just rescued. But she doesn't doesn't seem to remember anything."
????: "I'm sure something can be worked out to find your mother. Don't worry, young one. As for your sister. Have you considered the possibility of amnesia? Or maybe she could be an ancestor of your sister and they happen to look alike. Or some combination of both perhaps?"

(*choose a name for this character, I can only seem to think of him as either Gandalf or maybe Shrek; a tall guy lives in a swamp, has a house built into a tree with a door that looks too small for someone so tall.)

You could try Shepherd's Crossing.
It's also on PS2 and has a sequel on DS.
And look into Rune Factory, most people seem to like 3, 4, and Frontier the most, but I've only played Frontier.

...signs telling the party to turn back and no trespassers, with skeletons littering the ground. The skeletons reanimate and begin attacking the party. It's a tough battle, but the skeletons are subdued and they fall back to the ground with the bones looking haphazardly placed.

Venturing forth, with Crestee leading the way, Alex notices a tripwire but it's too late. Crestee is hanging from a tree and looks bewildered.
Crestee: "Ack. Help meeeeeee. Please?"
Roko: "Such a vulnerable position, I like it..."
Alex: "SHH!!"
Alex hushes the rest of the party, and they hear rustling in the bushes, until suddenly two tribal warriors jump out begin speaking in a harsh tone with a thick accent.
Native: "I guess you didn't read the signs. That was foolish of you. You''l be coming with us, then. The girl that tripped the wire will stay here."
Making their way through the woods, the see various traps with occasional bodies laying around. Upon reaching the tribal village, we find a girl hung up on a rack, the torture device for stretching the limbs of its victims.
Roko: "Kinky."

Running up to the girl laid out on the rack, she looked puzzled and replied with a faint voice.
Alexandra: "Who are you? Do you know me? I don't recognize you."
Alex: "Are you serious? I'm your twin brother, Alexander! We were born into nobility in the kingdom of Selasse. How can you not remember?
Alexandra(?): "I don't know an Alexander, or Alexandra for that matter. I don't have a brother, much less a family. I'm all alone in this cruel world..."

Leona: "I think you're forgetting something. A family heirloom, perhaps."
Crestee struggles to answer, shaken by grief.
Leona: "I'm sure it survived, after all, it is a powerful artifact. It's survived several wars over thousands of years."
Crestee: "U-umm..."
Leona: "I'll go find it for you."
Crestee: "That's fine. I need to bury my family."
After about ten minutes, Crestee was only able to find her uncle.

The cat comes back with a pendant in its mouth.
Leona: "Go ahead, take it."
Crestee does so and immediately the pendant shines brilliantly, as if reacting to Crestee. The two of them see Marta, sitting on the ground sobbing in the exact spot where their house was, with the town gone also.
Crestee: "MOM!"
She runs to hug her mom but she falls to the ground as if this were just some apparition. And then the house returns and Marta disappears as a voice breaks into the silence.
Alex: "Crestee? Are you okay?"
Crestee: "I don't know."
Leona: "That family heirloom of yours is actually something many people have thought was lost, but someone recently came looking for it.  The Eye of Spacetime. You just saw your mom in the past. 100 years ago to be precise."
Crestee: "During the war?"
Leona: "Right. I'm here to help you bring her back."
Crestee: "It sounds like you knew this would happen. Why not stop it?"
Leona: "I don't have power to change these things, and I'm sure no one would believe a talking cat that they'd be transported through time."
Crestee: "I suppose not."
Leona: "For right now, let's call me your guardian angel."
