I have been away from the anime scene again but now for a good reason. I was at the end part of persona 5. It takes a lot of time and every hour i spent playing it was worth it.
I know this is not about an anime but still i would like to discuss my opinion on it.
So this Jrpg game and my very first jrpg game that I actually completed. The thing is that i never really liked the world setting for other Jrpg games but Persona 5 has the world setting which i really liked.
Persona 5 takes place in present time Tokyo, so i felt like i could relate to stuff happening. Our Main protagonist is an high school student which is again something i can kinda relate to.
This is a game so you would actually have to play through it. Depending on the way you play it you can complete it in minimum 60 hours(skipping cut scenes and stuff) ot like me who spent 85+ hours(watched cut scenes and things but didn’t max all stats). If you are a hardcore Jrpg fan then you will easily take 130+ hours to complete it.
Those 85 hours that i played through the game felt full filling. The story always manages to keep you on the edge of your seat. The game also manages to convey emotions in a pretty good way.( If the in-game character are frustrated so am i).
There were absolutely no times when i felt really bored, the game has really good pacing. It manages to keep the players entertained.
The thing i felt that makes it standout from the other Jrpg thag i have played (somewhat) is that Persona 5 has pretty different art-style then other Jrpg i have tried and it has pretty amazing Sound track. This i feel helps in making the player more immersed in the gameplay.
Also this game focuses more on the friendship. It is a key element of the game.
The combat is turn based and there are a lot of puzzles in the game like many other Jrpg games.
There are some flaws in the game too but they cannot be just told, these are something that you just feel while playing the game. Some of the flaws that i felt the game had, would probably not even be flaws for others. Any flaws that infelt were really minor and quickly forgotten. One thing i know is that it takes almost 5 hours to get going. Like the introduction and stuff will take around 5-7 hours but be patient and you will be fine.
I just feel that anyone who owns a PS4 or PS3 should play this game. It is really amazing.
