Persona 5

Jesus sandwich the details in this gameeeee. Pretty crazy this game is made by 70 people.

Not really. AAA teams are oversized for speed, not quality. Given the only thing in persona 5 that’s complicated dev wise is the story, 70 people sounds reasonable.

That’s true but what I meant is that 15 people were drawing by hand the animations in the game. That’s a fuckton of work and money. For example, one episode of One Piece costs around $100k to make and that thing is nowhere near the quality of Persona 5 animations. Not to mention, at the time of development, Persona 5 never had AAA budget to begin with. Which is probably why the development of the game was nearly 10 years. Dunno, to me this is impressive.

I don’t recall that many animated videos in the game. 3d model animation is actually easier.

In the first 3 hours that I played, nearly half of it was in animations haha

Ah, it’s been a while. Maybe they become more sparse as you play the rest of the 197 hours.

197? Ah you’ve played the original Persona. With Royal it’s more like 297 hours xD


I played through royal and my final playtime was around 330 hours.

Did you stop at the end or keep going for achievements?

Pfff no one here goes for achievements/trophies. Except meeeeeeee because I’m an idiot.

I stopped after the credits rolled. I did however do all the optional memento quests, and pretty much any optional thing I could find along the way.

Just finished the game. For me, this game is most likely the best game I’ve played. I don’t even know what I’m supposed to do now…I feel like I want to play more Persona 5 and that’s about it. It took me ~100hrs to get everything in the game, complete every mementos quest, every confidant maxed out and all characters have been leveled to 99. Everything in this game is just super high quality. From the combat, music, visuals to the story. The amount of work and love the devs put into this is just overwhelming. Please buy this so we can get more Persona. Recommended!

It’s a great game. The added semester of school in royal feels a little weird at first because it makes the original ending of the game not the end. So you have this big epic battle only for the game to continue. However the story of the extra semester is really good so I completely welcome it. P5R is one of if not the best game I’ve ever played. I’ll have to give strikers a play through at some point.

I agree! I don’t mind the second ending because it kinda answered questions on some of the characters what happened with them in the original ending. It made the game truly complete. I will most likely chill a bit from the Persona vibe and maybe finish Demon’s Souls before starting Persona 5 Strikers.

If they do what they did with Persona 4 Golden, it’s gonna be fantastic to play. Atlus has yet to release garbage.
