I was in my teens when I first played .hack//; I had avoided the series for years for no particular reason, but a high school friend of mine told me I had to play it. One summer during my youth, I picked up .hack//G.U. Volume 1: Rebirth, and I never went back. Well, that is, until today, when I returned to the online game The World in the PlayStation 4 remaster of the .hack//G.U. trilogy of games: .hack//G.U. Last Recode.
