Oh man, I forgot about that. Didn't Square delay FFXV solely so it wouldn't compete with Persona 5? >_> I remember that was the rumor

I remember posting that theory back on the Persona 5 board years ago. Some dude with a makeshift website put out a news article about the rumor and used my gamefaqs username in the article as a source lol

I haven't played it since I beat it in 2017 but I think I'm almost ready to go back to it again

Royal is on sale on PSN (today is the last day) and I'm still on the fence about it. My only exposure to Persona has been the few hours I played Persona 3 FES way back and I haven't been into many modern JRPG's in general, though I did just play and love Yakuza: LAD when it came out.

I was in the live chat for that Persona stream with the P5 Chair teaser. Everyone was going wild. It was like an hour or two of build-up with everyone begging for a P5 announcement until the very end. I almost forgot now I was at one point so excited for the game...

It is a good game still. Only regret is playing it on a PS3 with a physical copy because the load times were unbearable and probably single-handedly added hours to playthrough. And I also regret a little bit not just waiting to play it until Royal, since I'm both interested in the additions it brings and not interested enough to replay the game a 3rd or 4th time.

It's my second favourite game of all time

I'd say go for it

Ended up buying it. Once the PS5 is set up and all the transferring is done, Persona 5 Royal will probably be the first game I play on the new console!

I felt the same way about MGSV. Honestly, warts and all? I don't feel like I was wrong to have been as hyped as I was.

It was my first and last time to get excited for a game I really wanted, and it was worth the wait. Even if going "man I'd better not die before this comes out" is a bit melodramatic, that sort of hype and reverence for a thing I wanted still rings true and feels justified.

Let your freak flag fly dude, don't feel ashamed.

I've heard that OG P5 handles some aspects better than P5R, but I can't remember which parts.

idk what. I've played OG P5 twice and P5R once and I think P5R is better in every single way >_>

I was really excited about playing P5, but that was less to do with the release date and more to do with my getting-a-PS4 date

It was on PS3 tho >_> The only difference was slighter longer load times I think

I didn't have one of those either

Plus by the time I got into Persona, 5R was out (which I should have clarified in my post). I got the PS4 a few months ago and blazed my way through 5R

And when Persona 5 Royal was coming out and covid start hitting with all the craziness and grocery shortages, I remember also having the thought "Man, I hope society doesn't collapse before I get this game lol"

Youre not giving it fair credit
you said yourself that it's crossing an incredibly low bar, there's not much to give it credit for beyond "it tries"
it's simple fun but it doesn't have the depth and variety to keep the games difficult or thoroughly engaging: where are the varied skills with interesting applications? where are the thought-out encounter designs that require me to prioritize enemies in special ways? when is doing something besides hitting weaknesses (or spamming the best physical multi-hit) after buffing/debuffing ever not going to be the best strategy in every fight?
it's better than the average jrpg for sure but i don't think it's the excellent nail-biting test of wits that people love to make it out to be

The title screen and actual intro to the game are better in the OG version. They awkardly add in a new character to the first scene of the game. Other than that, Royal is essentially a better game.

There's one boss that's bad in Royal. Maybe they handled that better in OG

Theres a bit of the very tail end of Royal that I feel goes against the entire theme and tone of the game, but its nothing super major.

You mean joker leaving Tokyo?
