I've seen some people who claim this game has very revolutionary messages and even promotes anarchism but it just seems like a really half baked and generic "rebel against authority" message. Thoughts?[spoiler]Also, Haru best girl

>brainwash people into not being bad>realize this is bad maybe?>shoot god in the face>everything goes back to normalStory goes to shit maybe halfway through and a lot of it feels rushed. That bossy class pres cunt fept like two characters slapped togethers and the last arc was 1/10 as satisfying as P4's last arc imo. It should have been adults like in Catherine, I'm so tired of quirky high schoolers. At least the game looks cool. Also the hot teacher working two jobs is best girl obviously.SMT5 never fucking ever

>>2187Err it was okay, it has more gnostic vibes than socialist since there isn’t any real critique of society other than to smash/escape it. The Igor twist also could have been done way better. I actually want Goro to be a Sherlock character that clashes with Joker like how Sherlock fight with Lupin.>>2188Last arc may be very bloated but I don’t think your criticism is fair. Plus Makoto is only taking on the role as leader not 2.

Persona 5 is the game that made me realize that I don't like silent protagonists very much. Should have just made Makoto the protagonist with all the screen time she gets.Also the game's revolutionary message only amounts to "fuck boomers", which is fine if you're into that sort of thing.

Can someone help me decide what Persona game to play after finishing 5? They're too many versions of these games.Apparently all the versions of Persona 3 on the PS2 don't have controllable party members, and the PSP versions lose out in presentation. So the best way to play this is on an PS2 emulator with a controllable party member mod, correct?And what about Persona 4 PS2 vs Persona 4 Golden? Which version is superior?

If you actually like the gameplay then just play the original Persona 3 FES, controllable party members make it really fucking easy. But the game as a whole is such a slog that there's no shame in doing it anyways.

pls don't make me remember. Oh I know, I was just memeing. Kinda funny how Mastema is a real shitbag in Strange Journey, and a total bro in 4 as well as pretty much responsible for dunking on YHVH initial plan for humanity on the surface. With that said, Alignments can be flexible from game to game, like SJ Redux-Law and Devil Survivor 2 Law eliminating/brainwashing aggression and competiveness away, instead of sucking pissheads dick.

Kinda necroing, but only finished it a few weeks ago after having forgotten why I dropped it for a full year. Holy shit this game annoyed the fuck out of me.
Nothing but empty anarcho-succdem platitude after empty platitude, only to fight not one but two bosses in a row we never really get to know or give a fuck about other than "vaguely right-wing boomer bad" and ctrl+v malevolent god. I'd already dropped it for about a year before (got it on release in 2017 lmao) because I could already sense that things were going to shit by the time I advanced through the Okumura castle. What a fucking fumble.
At least Persona 4 knew to stay in its lane as a comfy detective story mixed with some simple but effective personal development shit. Last time I put this much time into a (J)RPG, Catherine told an infinitely better and more mature (by nip standards) story in about a fifth of the time.

If you're this impressed by Persona games unironically go play the main SMT games. They don't have or slice of life bullshit with teenagers taken straight out of your run of the mill romcom anime or galge.

Should just play Persona 4 Golden or Persona 3 FES(which is considered more dark by some standards). But if you like mature themes. I would advise you to get Nocturne remastered next year if you are use to JRPG mechanics and like puzzles and mazes etc.

Yeah, P5 is a mess and the only thing it particularly succeeds in is presentation. Pretty much all the other games in the series are better (I never got that into Revelations) to say nothing of the rest of the franchise.
I'll second/third/fourth people just saying "play SMT", though with the slight caveat that the games aren't as character driven as Persona and certainly don't have any fun high school anime shenanigans. What they do have is excellent atmosphere and gameplay. 2 is my personal favorite but all of mainline is worth it except maybe Apocalypse which I never got to.

Love Persona 3. Took the FeMC pill and didn't regret it one bit.
Eternal Punishment is next. I've seen somewhat mixed reactions online but the good things I've heard have got me intrigued.

Ok, mainline SMT it is. Is Nocturne a good place to start? I tried one of the DS ones when I was like 16 but it was too hard for me.
Also wasn't too into/good at JRPGs at that point yet so idk, maybe it was just a me thing.

But that's unironically the best part. The turn based RPG is the lamest part of the game.

Far too late on this but yeah, Nocturne is probably the best place to start. It is hard, definitely harder than 4, but nothing too impossible or demanding.

I started P3 with this mindset but through the middle part I just kept booting the emulator on my free time only to dungeon crawl on Tartarus. The RPG part is weirdly compelling to me despite being pretty barebones.

I played Nocturne after P3 and was blown away, now THAT'S a fun RPG. I still like P3's plot a lot

>>5712
Is it? I beat Nocturne and went for the TDE on my first playthrough, it was kinda challenging but not really hard imo.
On 4 I got filtered almost immediately by Naraku.
