    Can't decide if I really want this the day it comes out, or if I want to wait a bit before buying. Pretty hyped for it either way

    I wasn't expecting Persona 3 or 4. But sucks balls? You can't just say that and drop the mic.

    What was bad about it?

    Had really good reviews in Japan for whatever that's worth. Famitsu gave it a 39/40 I think

    Jap gaming press are even less trustworthy than the western ones. Famitsu is known for throwing out good score everywhere. I have to see more then one giving out a good score.

    No worries, he can't resist the temptation of a tl;dr essay forever.

    without spoiling the actual twist, there was a huge shitstorm in japanese media and imageboards because of how terrible persona 5's main twist was. persona is not a series with great twists to begin with (eg. loladachi in P4), but P5 blew all other main games out of the water. if you don't have anything against being spoiled, i can go into detail, but here's just why the twist was terrible without spoiling it:

    - japanese advertisement before the game even launched made it extremely obvious what the twist would be
    - the way the story unfolds makes it abundantly clear what the big revelation at the end is going to be
    - the twist itself is bad, but this is not something that can be explained without actually spoiling what it is

    overall, the story is just quite dubious this time around. it follows - quite literally - the exact same formula P4 did, and i mean that to a tee.

    the visuals are actually incredibly cool and the game just looks sexy basically at all times from a design standpoint, but the OST is quite the downgrade compared to persona 4's.

    i should say that i was trying to incite responses by saying it sucks balls, so i was exaggerating a bit. but to a lot of people, including me, it's a really big disappointment. persona 5 introduces a lot of stuff and you expect it to just gradually get more and more intriguing as the game nears its end, but that isn't the case at all. it goes down the shitter after it becomes clear what core message the game is trying to convey (which couldn't be more cliché if it wanted to), and then you just start noticing how dumb the writing is in the greater picture.

    - - - Updated - - -

    as ink spot already mentioned, famitsu scores mean absolutely nothing. review scores from japanese mags are to be taken with a grain of salt basically always due to how culturally different nippon land is (not to mention that most magazines are literally corrupt to the core), but famitsu turns it up a notch. they notoriously gave umbrella corps a 36/40, an absolute garbage shooter (a single google search will tell you that much more convincingly than i ever could).

    Don't want to be spoiled. But going by what you said. I'm going to keep my hype in check. Still looking forward to a new Persona game, and it looks crazy fun.

    It's good so far. But I'm still in the early parts of the game. Day 5? To early to say if the game is worth it or not.

    But the stylishness is some of the best I've seen.
