          You've clearly never played an SMT game before. They all have bare one stories and desolate worlds. Stick to Persona if you want a story based game.

                Or y'know, Nocturne, a game with high school protagonist, high school teacher being the neutral rep, high school kids being various alignment representatives, etc. Nocturnebabs are such dumb cunts who entirely misses the point of both megami tensei and persona, just because it was the first entry they played after P3 when they were an edgy 13 year old and thinking SMT must only be good for gameplay and telling a decent story is bad because they got to wait a little longer to start auto-battling demons again

              This is what nu-Personafags actually believe.

              He's correct though, the story is never the focus of any mainline title. The one you might argue does the most is Strange Journey, but that's an exception to the rule, and even then, it still isn't much compared to your average JRPG. Why are so many Gankertards idiots that don't know that SMT is primarily a dungeon crawling JRPG?

                Just chiming in to say I don't get the praise for Nocturne's atmosphere, because most things feel incredibly low stakes and disconnected, even compared to SMT1/2. Demifiend is so insanely passive and there's not a lot grounding the world to make you care about it.

                Everything in Nocturne is disgustingly overrated and only lives on through nostalgia.
                Everything the claim they love in Nocturne is what they say they hate in SMTV when it pretty just took what it had and improves it slightly. Kinda similar to a very different game Banjo Tooie, people claim they love that game but despise Yooka Laylee when it's literally the same game reskinned but without the nostalgia goggles.

                That whole sacrifice shit with the MC I always thought since playing it the first time was beyond retarded and forced, it was just done because it was trying to get player to feel something while playing the game. You could make the argument that it kind of ties in with the themes of death in the game, but if that's the case, they could have tied it more naturally in the story. Like set up that the MC is going to die, instead of just pulling it out of their ass on the very last day. This was something I feel P4 and P5 did better, because they set up from the start that MC at the end is going to leave the party to go back home and they work that angle better to create more of an emotional send off thing than what P3 does. What's even worse is that Atlus can't even stick to fact that the P3 MC will stay permanently dead since they keep implying in shit like the answer and P4A that "oh, if we believe hard enough, he might just come back to life" so much for sticking with the message of "memento mori" and death is going happen so make the most of it. What a pathetic joke of a game, can't believe people still defend P3 as the best persona game or one of their favourite games. The only good thing P3 ever did, was that it set up the basis for actual good games P4 and P5

                tbf, the P3 camp really enjoys the act of glossing over the fact that their favourite game is incredibly shitty just so they can continue jerking each other off and being mad at other megaten and persona games for being more successful and being better games. It's probably why they dislike P5 the most, it took a lot of the downer and melancholy stuff from P3 but gave it more substance instead of just pissing and moaning on about for 90 hours. and not only that, but the actual game itself was good with shit like actual dungeon designs, improved gameplay with having shit like demon negotiation and all of the improvements brought over from P4 and good music
                >how many issues the game's pacing and plot really have.

                Okay ESL, whatever you say. Please continue to suck P3's dick, it'll always be surpassed by many other megaten, persona and JRPGs in general in terms of, writing, themes, gameplay, visuals, audio, characters, etc. Even the other nu-persona games are significantly better. Just the fact your best defence for P3 is shitting on better games is pathetic, it's a game you can't even defend based on it's own merits

                Except, you know, it happens anytime someone brings up they don't like shit like the AI party mechanics, tired mechanic, Tartarus being boring as bat shit, etc. the P3 defense force quickly comes in and yells "filtered" or "no, it's meant to be shit." But hey, selective listening and reading is something I should expect from Personafags at this point
                >The writing in P3 isn't this utter matterpiece but it completely shits all over the absolute horrid dog shit that's in P4 or especially P5.
                But that's the thing, it's not even good to begin with. I get liking a decent story that isn't fucking a masterpiece, but saying P3 is above average in terms of storytelling is lying. The thing I hate the most about the story is that it insists upon itself like Omori or Celeste. P4 wasn't even trying to be remotely deep or confound, it just trying to tell a mystery story with some scenes of character development. it worked better there since the writing wasn't meant to be anything fantastic. it knew what it wanted to do and sticked with it. P5 has similar pacing issues to P3 but the themes it presented was more varied and was more willing to experiment about talking about different subjects like escapism with Maruki or the stuff with Yaldaboath or Sae. Persona 3 drags on the memento mori and depression/death stuff but doesn't do anything interesting with it to warrant dragging out those concepts for 90 hours straight. If you want a megaten story that tackles similar themes much better, play SMT3 or Persona 2ISEP, and even then those games still have story issues

                P3 never has you spend an entire week (multiple times through out the game) having an annoying cunt of a cat telling you can't do anything so go straight to bed.
                >what are you trying to say here? do you mean social stats that were also in P3 and 4?
                P5 tripled the amount of time it takes to level of your social stats, and many Confidents as soon as their 3rd level demanded that you have a specific stat completely maxed out (unlike other games were you only needs it to 1/2 or 3/4 leveled) which walls you out from being able to do anything meaningful and just do these insufferably terrible part time jobs that take way too much time to get through.

                Because it isn't LMAO, there's only 3 stats versus 5 in P5 and no character demands a maxed out social stat as soon as their 3rd link.
                And spending time leveling a stat only takes 5 seconds compared to 2 minutes in P5.

                Fair point, P5R did dramatically cut down on that shit, and even in P5 once you get the massage service, that shit becomes less of a problem. The issue with your argument is that I was arguing that P3 had story pacing issues, the morgana thing is not a story pacing issue, it's a gameplay issue more than anything. Persona 3 has long stretches of fuck all meaningful happening, where while P4 and 5 has the same issue, it's nowhere near to the same extent.
                >P5 tripled the amount of time it takes to level of your social stats, and many Confidents as soon as their 3rd level demanded that you have a specific stat completely maxed out (unlike other games were you only needs it to 1/2 or 3/4 leveled)
                Did we even played the same game? Persona 3 is the worse out of the Nu-persona trilogy when it comes to do this shit. If you think having confidants be stopped at a certain social link level because your social stats isn't maxed out, Persona 3 flat out has a couple of social links you can't start unless you've maxed out your social link stat. Also out of the games, it's the one you spend most of your time slots at cafes and studying at night just to rank up your social stats. worse of all, it's reliant on the MC getting lucky with social stats while studying to get multiple points the most out of any persona game. At least in P4 and P5 you can read books to raise social stats faster both short term (with immediate stats boosts) and long term (with books to raise how many knowledge points you gain during studying permanently) How are you this bad at P4 and 5 you can't manage the opportunities for free reading and answering classroom questions?

                Did forget but there's only 2, Mitsuru and Ken (lol), but again for the case of Ken he comes so late in the game you probably already have Courage maxed.
                >At least in P4 and P5 you can read books to raise social stats faster both short term
                Those added books because they increased the social stats from 3 to 5 on top of P5 tripling the point requirements.
                >Also, good job with the "You're trying to act like people defend the gameplay and systems in play in P3 which is flat out untrue." when gays like >611594332
                That post came after mine, don't expect me to see the future.

                >Those weeks of go straight to bed were ALL points were absolute fuck all happen in the story and is just "yes we wait for the calling card, now let's keep waiting"
                So the exact same thing P3 does. Where the characters just sit around and jerk each other off and talking to them before the next floor of tarturus or full moon boss amounts to “wait for the full moon boss, let’s keep waiting”
                >Did forget but there's only 2
                It’s Misturu, Fuuka, Yukari and if we are talking portable it’s also Ken
                >Those added books because they increased the social stats from 3 to 5 on top of P5 tripling the point requirements.
                I’m gonna do some math here but the total amount of points to level all social stats in P3 is 420, P4 is 735 and P5 is 660. So ok, P3 has lesser stat requirements than P4 and P5, maybe not tripled that of P5 as you were claiming or even doubled, but it’s still more regardless. However, when you do take into account that significantly more often than in P3 you’ll be scoring two and three stats points in P4 and P5, that gap between earning points in P3 than P4 and 5 gets to the point where you spend overall less time levelling up social stats than P3, where you rarely get two or three points per go, thus, you’re required to spend more time studying and going to cafes and all of that shit. Even better in P5 as previously mentioned, you get a lot of free opportunities to raise your stats, either by reading on the train or slacking off during class to raise other stats, even stuff like creating dungeon items will net you points in proficiency, P4 also did this with certain social links like Sakoyo or Eri where by doing their social links you also gain social status points while doing so

                >Persona 3 flat out has a couple of social links you can't start unless you've maxed out your social link stat
                Are you fucking seriously gonna use this? It's literally 3 social links that don't unlock until midway through. Meanwhile, almost every Persona 5 link gets stopped by you not having proper stats meaning that you need to do NG+ on a game that's already 100 bajillion fucking hours long to get a really authentic experience out of it.

                On my first run of P5 I maxed out all confidants and social stats without assistance and still had time left over if i need it. I don't know what to tell you outside of get good

                Flat out on true, there points were you can't do certain social links with your part members but you still have full liberty to do anything else unlike P5.

                Are you seriously going to try and convince me that only P5 has mandatory story days that you can't do anything on? Something that was also present in P3 and P4 for up to a few days or week at a time where you do nothing but watch a story related cutscene and forced to go to bed, maybe if you're really lucky you can study at night or play the arcade machine.
                >there points were you can't do certain social links with your part members
                Yeah, all 3 of the party members you can do social links with that don't unlock until you max out your social stats. The rest of which is all conveyed through story cutscenes. Story cutscenes that prevents you doing stuff during the day and even at night, forcing you to go to bed

                In Royale if you already beat 5 and know what to do you'll have something like a month worth of extra days over the game where there's nothing to do but go to the gym or temple

                Did you fucking play the game? MC is already an animated corpse. He's some random kid who died on the bridge and got reanimated by death so that death could hide inside him. He was supposed to collapse like a puppet with its strings cut the moment death became the Herald but continued existing because of wildcard velvet room bullshit.

                As a matter of fact, I did and thought it was one of the worst games i've finished that wasn't an actual kusoge (along the lines on Takeshi's Challenge or Paris Dakar Rally Special), but that's besides the point. He still didn't die, the whole shit about the MC not dying was only because he had the wildcard potential, not because death was sealed with him beforehand, he still would have survived that situation regardless of if Aigis sealed death inside of him. It was purely done for the benefit of Aigis since she wasn't able to kill Nyx at the time. Worse off, that cutscene explaining that shit was on early december, which at that point, who gives a shit? you're going to bring up such plot crucial shit towards the end of game, just to justified that at the very last minute the MC sacrificed himself to make the sissies who were playing the game cry at the end. Give me a fucking break. So to me, the whole MC sacrificing shit was still forced, he still didn't have to die outside the fact the writers were pants on head retarded, and if he had the potential to do anything, he would have survived regardless, but Atlus needed the "glorious MC sacrifice to make the story mean something" scene

            You are trolling hard, Persona 1 is one of the most tedious boring JRPGs I have ever played. For every cool feature or thing the game does, there's constant ten minute random battles that are both easy and take forever to get through. No one actually thinks Persona 1 is good.

              Persona 1 is fine, and I have no reason to troll because i genuinely like it, unlike P3. i've played other FPDC megaten games that are better than P1, like soul hackers, strange journey and hell, i even prefer megami tensei 2 and SMT if... over P1. But P1 is still a decent dungeon crawler with only a few issues like aforementioned constant random battles, guns snapping the game in two, and players and persona level ups being seperate for some dumbass reason. I still will rather play P1 over P3, but then again no P3fags have bothered to play P1 or the other megaten games in fear that they might prefer it over their precious little sissy gay game

            Anyone who seriously tries to claim that P3 had a passable or good story is either looking at it through the most rose tinted glasses imaginable or allowing the most absolutely ridiculous handwaves to just fall off their back. It doesn't even HAVE a story for 2/3'rds of the game, and when it starts info-dumping you at the end, the whole fucking setup is "An entire organisation of the most brilliant, well funded scientists in the world all decide to commit suicide. Only one of them backs out of this plan."

            Nevermind that FES quite literally changed the story so that Chisato is RESURRECTED because of the power of love. Sucks to be Shinji, I guess nobody loved him, because he stays dead like a bitch. Lol. Lmao even.

      High school in Japan is the equivalent to being a 30 year old in the West. Once you pass that age, your life's over, you might as well die. That's why nearly every piece of Japanese media focuses on high schoolers like every piece of American media focuses on 20-30 year olds.

                Also persona 5 Royal may sell 1 million copies on steam IF it releases at $20 like P4G did, otherwise expect it to be lucky if it caps at a life time of 200k if it releases at a full $60.

    I haven't experienced any technical issues aside from the long loading times between gameplay locations. Other than that I'm still enjoying the game. I just wish it were longer

      If you go into settings on loading and set it to hide the loading screen tips, it will load areas a lot faster. I think it's because it's trying to juggle loading the new area and displaying the loading screen tips.

    I liked SMTV but the difficulty felt severely railroaded for me. I could be what I figured was a bit underleveled and the game would become impossible, and then I'd level up a few times and it would become almost too easy, like there's a very specific range of levels you should be inside of or you fuck up your experience a bit.

      The level adjustment for damage is way too extreme in both directions. If the game ever gets ported to PC that'd be the first thing I'd hope would get modded (but won't because Atlus is the type of company to think Denuvo is still a good idea in the year 2022).

      I fucking wish SMT5 had a barebones story

      Play another RPG series if you think SMTV isn't a barebones story. It really is the same as Nocturne where you just go on a bunch of fetch quests with a loosely connected narrative, with exposition dumps in between.

        Yeah I'm hoping a nice hardtype mod comes out for SMTV or something, a rebalance to deal with the adjustments. I have no idea why they did it.

          It's not purely a graphics thing, the performance is not good either. It would be understandable if the game ran really smoothly, but it doesn't. With proper engineering effort a game with these close to these visuals could run on the Switch but this runs at like 20 fps on Xbox One

      Shit programmers. They didn't use any of Unity's advanced features like the High Definition Render Pipeline or even the Universal Render Pipeline where Atlus seems to be using the default pipeline. That's why a load of graphical effects were just pain missing which Unity is capable of like anti-aliasing, ambient occlusion and etc. The engine isn't the limiting factor when it can do demos like this.

    Personally I like Persona 3 more than 4 because the party members have their arc separate from your social links with them. In P4, characters like Yosuke, Chie, and Kanji never really develop in the main plot outside of your Social Links, so you have them essentially remaining static in their personality for the entire game.

      The character writing is very good. They take the nihilistic and gloomy theme prevalent in cyberpunk themed stuff but still try and add something optimistic to it. Saizo, Arrow and Figue all keep the themes from being fully dark because of their hopeful natures.
      Gameplay wise it reminds me of Nocturne, really. Not of Persona at all.
      The dungeons are like Nocturne (corporate buildings, subway tunnels)
      The battle system isn't press turn but has demon coops from Strange Journey.
      It's very easy for the most part but has moments where it can fuck you up by just not being prepared just like a typical atlus game.
      imo, play it for the story/characters before anything else, because it's not a bad story at all. It's very good, matter of fact.
