    Can’t for the life of me figure out why people enjoy this game. It was clearly made for angry children, but filled with adult themes. They can’t decide who they want their fanbase to be. You press X to get through the entire game, so it is crazy boring and repetitive.

  2. hxanakoz on August 25, 2022 at 2:49 am

  3. CLOUT LAND TV on August 25, 2022 at 2:49 am

  15. Pravvin P on August 25, 2022 at 3:03 am

    The only other game that gives this game’s level of immersion and attachment is RDR2.

  16. Beats By Sidgotthejuice on August 25, 2022 at 3:03 am

    Here because of PlayStation Plus Monthly

  17. Aaron18Cvx on August 25, 2022 at 3:03 am

    got p5 royal last friday, i thought i wouldnt get into it back then when it got released when i was watching gameplay, i gave it a shot on ps plus and game is fun to play. Got royal version on sale on ps plus, totally worth $24 for me 😀

  18. Mother Tree on August 25, 2022 at 3:09 am

    Royale or strikers?

  19. Ludwig on August 25, 2022 at 3:12 am

    I think of P5 as basically a visual novel with some JRPG and life sim elements. it’s slow paced and If you’re the sort of person who mostly skips cutscenes and don’t care about story, I probably would avoid it.

  20. PixelB3 Studio on August 25, 2022 at 3:14 am

    I became obsessed as soon as I started playing— I was head over heels and it’s interesting to see his opinion on how he wasn’t crazy about the beginning. Personally, I feel like game drags on later on because you’re doing a lot of the same things, hearing a lot of the same tracks and it gets tedious but when the game first starts out it’s heaven. Once I got to Futabas palace I was kinda starting to play less and less because it felt repetitive, but I still love the game to bits and keep playing.

  21. DarkWhiteRaven on August 25, 2022 at 3:19 am

    First few hours feels l Like a massive tutorial

  22. MuRReC on August 25, 2022 at 3:19 am

    I’m afraid I will hate school part. The dungeons sounds awesome

  23. KING JOKER1227 on August 25, 2022 at 3:20 am

    Love this game playing it now on the p5 I’m hooked must play

  24. CappuccinoKun on August 25, 2022 at 3:20 am

    Before you buy persona 5 just don’t buy it bad idea play the other persona games thanks

  25. Ayden H. on August 25, 2022 at 3:22 am

    This game looks amazing! Alas, in order to play it, first I’ll need A: A PS3 B: the game, and C: however much money all this would cost. Oh, the suckiness of being poor.

  26. Ghost Recon on August 25, 2022 at 3:26 am

    I never buy games anyways 😂

  27. klubsy on August 25, 2022 at 3:26 am

    I am sorry ,but can we fix the lighing in the game? i mean, it’s too dark and maybe bacouse it’s the game’s style, but i just don’t like to be blind. So can someone tell me, please?

  28. yves on August 25, 2022 at 3:27 am

    my sister just bought me this game

  29. Eli Watson on August 25, 2022 at 3:28 am

    At first I played this game a little while and I quit because of how boring it was so I could play a different game. It was very boring to me and I just quit at first several times. However, after getting into the real meat of the game I couldn’t stop playing it. The music, style, and presentation captures your attention quite fast and keeps it until you can actually get into the game.Great game, not even done, still love it.

  30. Dylan L on August 25, 2022 at 3:28 am

    Beep Boop

  31. Cinetyk on August 25, 2022 at 3:28 am

    My dudes and gals: this game is mind-blowingly worth it to everyone. Loads of style, jRPG elements to the max, hints and nods to lots of anime-related seemingly clichés, but still altogether much more than all that together. It elevates every japanese thing to the max and provides an experience that will stay with you for a LONG time. Sure, it’s a LONG game, it takes some grinding, but it also is VERY rewarding for all the time spent grinding and investing in your favourite characters. Finally, I find it manages to capture some sort of youth/teen genuine positive energy of "trying to make the world a better place" as I don’t think I’ve felt in a LONG time (I was 36 when I played P5).

    Every once in a while this "videogame" medium provides something above the "just entertaining" product, something that reaches for art levels whilst talking about real stuff. The Persona series have always felt like that to me, and P5 realizes it with such overwhelming confidence and oozing so much style and cool-factor and heart-touching moments. Do yourself a favour and experience it.

  32. Venti on August 25, 2022 at 3:30 am

    whole "style" of this game makes me vomit all over table.

  35. burningknuckle26 on August 25, 2022 at 3:33 am

    This game is a fucking classic. And sucks you in like no other. The world is amazing and you get to date such cutiepies 😍

  37. Kage on August 25, 2022 at 3:35 am

    Just bought Persona 5 Royal Deluxe Edition for 20🤣

  38. Musashi Sumomonkey on August 25, 2022 at 3:38 am

    Something’s off with the American version of Persona 5… Here in Australia, the demons are called Succubus’s and the American Succubus’s here are called Twilight Prostitutes… Australian version is less censored…

  39. Ploxly on August 25, 2022 at 3:38 am

    I tried this as it was free on ps plus and I cant stand the talking. You have to skip animated cutscenes and fast forward dialouge for HOURS before you even start playing

  40. Krzysztof Witek on August 25, 2022 at 3:38 am

    Thanks for the review. I’ll be grabbing a copy, sounds really interesting 👍

  41. Wren Sa on August 25, 2022 at 3:39 am

    Finally got it for 7 bucks I think whatever happens I got my cash worth

  42. PsychicRogue on August 25, 2022 at 3:39 am

    I bought this game a couple of months ago, never played a Peraona game before, and OMG I absolutely LOVE this game

  43. Koen1702 on August 25, 2022 at 3:39 am

    I’m not at al into turn based games, is it still worth it?

  44. Fernando Garay on August 25, 2022 at 3:40 am

    I think Jake was the wrong person to review this game.

  45. Lempis on August 25, 2022 at 3:40 am

    I started persona 5 royal from a scratch and it is so overwhelming that had to stop playing for months at times. I’m finally feeling that I’m in a good pace now after the third dungeon, but now I have to learn the complex strategies of everything after now knowing ”most” of the basics. This game is definitely the most complicated game I’ve ever had to learn. I’m getting a feeling though that the 2nd playthrough is gonna more enjoyable for me than the 1st, so I can just blaze through with better knowledge while getting a little bit different of a plot experience as well.

  46. Gulyás Dávid on August 25, 2022 at 3:41 am

    simple one Of the Best game what ever made

  47. Google User on August 25, 2022 at 3:44 am

    I’ve played Tales of games but this one seems kind of slow and boring. Kind of skeptical to try it out

  48. Senear on August 25, 2022 at 3:44 am

    I wanna get this game but I’m afraid of sony deciding that this will be their next play at home game which will be free. What do you think guys?

  49. Shinobi Skalper on August 25, 2022 at 3:45 am

    I couldn’t get to the 1st boss. The gym teacher. Kept dyin from the guards or running out of time.

  50. Seth Dowling on August 25, 2022 at 3:47 am

    I usually don’t like jrpgs that are too modern but this one is honestly alot of fun sad I just started playing it lol, and I mean too modern because final fantasy has a modern twist but still feels a bit like final fantasy, well I’m going to exempt 13 and 15, and honestly 15 was an ARPG
