What roleplaying games have that separates them from other types of games is their focus on story more than gameplay. And with this deep exploration of the story comes a game far longer than other genres. While you will spend an average of ten hours on most single-player titles, RPGs can easily last triple that time, if not far longer. Along with their focus on telling a more detailed, complex story comes the potential for greatly developed characters. And from a genre filled with complex, well-developed characters comes Tokitowa, which has the best characters of any game I've played this year.
Tokitowa is the story of a girl with multiple personalities—Toki and Towa—who travels back in time to prevent the murder of her fiancé (Zack) mere moments before they are to be married. Unexpectedly, Zack's soul is then pulled back in time along with Toki/Towa; and while her soul enters her past body, his soul is forced into that of her pet dragon.
