Forums - Gaming Discussion - Is Persona 5 the best jprg of the last 20 years ?

After 100 hours, i am quite convinced that Persona 5 is the most innovative, full package JRPG.

Story with multiple twists and suspence X

Gameplay that every single move Counts, regardless of Level x

Fast paced Gameplay that doesnt feel repetitive or boring x (many rpgs suffer from this)

Huge amount of Content(last time a jprg went for 100 Hours ???)

Thoughts ?

It's not even the best Persona game of the last 20 years.



2001 was in the last 20 years, so no.

Final Fantasy X is the 2001 game that I'm referring to by the way.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Two words:
Xenoblade Chronicles. ;)

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

No. Damn fine game but not as good as Persona 4. Then we have Xenoblade. Ys Oath of Felghana. Trails of Cold Steel. Final Fantasy XII. XenoSaga. Lost Odyssey. Vanillaware games. Dragon Quest 8 and XI. The Last Story. Skies of Arcadia. SNT Nocturne. SMT IV. Valkyria Chronicles 4. Almost any FE game in that time. Tales of Vesperia and many many more that are also insanely great. Persona 5 while great. It has a lot of padding and pacing issues. Not a huge fan of how they force you to take a break on the dungeons. Breaks the flow. Persona 5 has substance but the balance of style and substance are offset. Leans more to style. I'd put it in the top 100 in the last 20 years but it would be pretty low on the list.

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Those saying Xenoblade Chronicles or FF or Valkyria or Dragon Quest games, i have played them all.
Persona 5 has a more smart system than all of them combined.



Still in the early hours of Persona. A bit too much high school stuff for me but Im enjoying it

Edit: My favourite JRPG of the last 2 decades is FFX. A bit simple but my god that world and story was told immaculately for its time. 



Are we talkin' vanilla Persona 5 or Persona 5 Royal?

Yeah but... you're also the one that wondered why that Mana game didn't get as much attention as FF7 so...
