Just thought I'd create a thread to openly discuss Persona 5 since there's nowhere else to discuss the game that is civil.

You can discuss story related stuff so long as you give warning for where it's at and spoiler tag it in case someone isn't up to there yet.

Discussions could be about characters, Persona's, gameplay, opinions, Confidants, story, social stat leveling etc etc.

Looking forward to discussing this game with everyone.

So this is my first Persona game, and I'm currently 50 hours in. Thing is, I don't even think I'm halfway through yet.

Just finished the third Palace and am leading up to the fourth one.

Took me the first 2 months of the game to finally fully understand everything, from Persona fusions, Confidants, and social links.

The time management aspect is kinda stressful but in a good way. I'm just focusing on the relationships I truly like now. The rest can be done on NG+

I'm kinda eager to try out the other Persona games now. Not sure which one to start with though. I've heard nothing of good things about Persona 4 Golden so I'll probably try that after this.

What did you name your protagonist?
Oh man I am very bad and non creative when it comes to naming characters in games. I take ages to decide upon something.

Well, the last game I played before this was FFXV so I named him Noctis because I couldn't think of anything else...

Yeah... Very uncreative lol.

This is coming from someone who thought Link from the Zelda games name was Zelda for awhile xD

What do you guys think of MC's character design?

Haven't played the other games, but I did look up what the protagonists look like.

Gotta say I think the P5 protagonist looks the best. Very cool and laid back vibe to him.

Easily the best MC design in the franchise imo, then again he's already my favorite silent protagonist by a long shot.

Agreed.

I will say the Persona 4 protagonist reminds me of Ignis in Brotherhood since the hair and glasses look the same.

I still prefer Persona 3 MC design, he would rank second though.
That game is on my to do list after P5, and P4.

Did you get a copy of the game yet?

Not yet. My local stores do have PS4 copies but, the problem is I dont own a PS4 :/, so I am waiting for a PS3 one...Which they arent sure if they will get one since it appears PS3 stock units of the game are sparse...
Buying online isn't an option? I feel for you man. I hope you can pick up a copy soon.

Finally got my copy. I had to pay the equivalent of $76USD, which in local currency was a bit pricy for a videogame, now I'm thinking whether I should have waited for a discount...

Photo Proof:
Nice!

You gonna get started on it straight away?

Let us know what you think of it :)

I just finished 5th story dungeon, 90 hours in already. Game is fucking endless, and a like it.
But this dungeon was really mediocre compared to previous ones, spend 3 hours on boss on hard.
Makoto best girl btw.

I just finished the 4th Palace 60 hours into the game.

The music at that place was so awesome.

Takemi for me. Makoto was really
unlikeable at first for me. Her actions made me very unimpressed with her character. Yes, she was "forced" to stalk and blackmail MC and co. but I still didn't like her attitude about it. Being smug about forcing the upper hand rubbed me the wrong way immensely.

Impressions from my first 3 hs:

  1. I like the visuals
  2. The first hours are better paced than P4 by far but, still a bit slow for my taste.
  3. This might be too early to say but, right now I don't like how on the nose the story can be at times.
The visuals are one of the most creative and stylish I've seen in a game.

I never though I'd be captivated by going into a menu and options screen of all things lol.

Im glad they kept the same graphical style as Catherine. Always found it to be unique and visually pleasing.

I plan on playing P4 after this. If the pacing for this is considered "better paced", I can't even begin to imagine how slow P4 will be. Heard nothing but good things about it so it should be alright after awhile.
