Honestly my initial response would be: Sell it, get a PS3 and play LoD. lol

But as he'll be definitely getting it for God of War I decided to asnwer his question instead.

But isn't LoD or it successor coming out on PS4? or have we given up hope.

Back on topic , Persona 5 is my suggestion.

Of course it is! But it's not there yet xP



Around the Network

I appreciate this thread. I haven't tried most of the games mentioned so far, but I've gotta say that Nier: Automata sounds the most intriguing.



Persona 5 first, then everything else.



 

Well, first of all, NieR and MHW aren't JRPGs.

Ni no Kuni 2 is fantastic. There's just nothing absolutely awful about the game aside from its own intent from the beginning of the game to undermine the world map with instant-travel.

Persona 5 is a great point to jump on the SMT bandwagon, and will somewhat mentally prepare you for SMTV (somewhat... Maybe a bit.) Be wary, though, as it is at the minimum a 60 hour game.

From those 4 you should get Persona 5.
Nier Automata is more of an action game and you'll get that from God of War right now.
But be sure to get Nier later as well as it's an amazing game too, that is, after you get Nioh, the best game this gen.

Hmm, you make a great point there, I will be getting the action fix from GoW. Lots of you are saying P5. Though I do like that Nier won't be quite the time sink as P5. Dammit, this is such a tough decision!

I meant that they're both RPGs made by Japanese devs. I realize they don't technically fit the genre mold itself of a JRPG like NNK and P5 do. 



If you want classic turn based combat get Persona 5. If you want an action rpg get Nier Automata. If you still aren't sure then just get Persona 5.

Out of these four, easily Persona 5.Outside of Nier though, you cant go really wrong.And remember, DQ XI is also comming, so there is tgat one too.

Interesting, most here seem highly in favor of Nier. Why did you not like it if I can ask? 

Mostly from a severe pacing issue.If I go into details, I mkight end up spoiling a couple of things, so lets just say that you end up replaying a mounstrous ammount of things that you have to go through, and the gameplay is way less fun than in act 1 or 3.

But thats not the only problem, even if the other issues are mostly tied to that first one.The game was obviously budget restrained, so much so that the game is too small for what it tries to achieve, so you end up going through some places alot of times, and that gets in the way.And its not RE kind of backtrack, which is fun.Other thing is that it could have used a better overall plot, though the narrative is excellent.In this instance, you could say the narrative is the whole point of the story, but it didnt fully click with me.

I have some other smaller issues with the game, but they are mostly minor.Having said this, its still a good game, just not in the same league as the others you have mentioned.

Edit:To give an example of who bad the pacing issue is in that part of the game, think Bravely Default late game.Yeah, its that bad.But overall its a good game, just like Bravely Default.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Get Persona, it's longer but you'll experiment two very diferrent gameplay styles one after the other instead of action twice.

Even as Nier is all over the place, it's not purely action fighting, which is pretty fun.



All of them :O
