Persona 5 is my first Persona game and im 30ish hours into it. This game has caused me to laugh.... A LOT. Not sure about what other people think, nor do I know what the metacritic score. I also never watched any reviews on youtube. All my cosplaying friends in KL love the game. So I some trailers and thought it looked super fun.
Hugs, I like this though you should try Vagrant Story and Xenogears on PS1 if you tried both try comparing those to Persona 5?
