It's Nier. It is supposed to be weird, fun and stupid. If you think that is the only redeeming quality for this game, you are so darn fucking lost. And wait, weren't you the one who was excited for this game in the first place? Have you forgotten the previous games in the series?
This has some stupid stuff, but it is fucking way far from your in the face fanservice which have that. Just because you have a good story and nice gameplay does't make it a rule that you do cannot have flipping skirts. Nier has all the stuff needed from a game, it then adds cherry on the top to make it even more sweeter and fun.
A good example of gaming industry losing hope: Recent Assassin's Creed releases. They have just become money making machine, each one becoming more mediocre by the minute.
