Sorry, but I don’t like Berseria. It’s gameplay and story is so convoluted that I never even finished it. The weapon system, for example, is unnecessarily complicated even by JRPG standards with so many stats, so many different status effects, and having different effects on different enemies! Why couldn’t it be more like Persona 5 which kept things simple with only 2 stats: “accuracy” and “damage”. Easy to understand, nice and simple....
....and don’t get me started on how the game forced you to grind each and every weapon in the game to “level up” your character
Berseria also have a horrible habit of wasting time: I remember clearly how the game made me fight across a HUGE and tedious map (the Aldina Grassland for you Tales fans) for no reason. It doesn't progress the story at all, and to add insult to injury, it makes you think you're at least going to fight a Dragon boss and get some special item just to have that boss fight be a fake one as your fight got interrupted (by Zaveid) and you gained nothing; not even exp. The only reward you get from that whole chapter is a hoverboard that makes you walk faster...that's it.
How a childish game like persona 5 beats the life of ffxv and ffxiii and ffxii and ffix, final fantasy games are the behemoth of an rpg how is persona 5 beats them the game looks so childish I should let my 9 years old kid play it, it doesn't deserve that score, that score deserve for final fantasy games
Sofaris woow dude relex I love p5 so much and I didn't find what u say was true that comment was a just test of how many people replies since everytime on youtube I say something no body replies, but now I said fuck it let me say something bad about my favourite game of all time, and I have few people got the trick and noticed me 😂😂😂 p5 has a very heavy theme and a well written characters I actually related a lot to them especially the protagonist and mishima, they both have the same dark past as me I was a weak person who everyone put the blame on and make fun off but when I played this game it gave me courge and now i'm a changed person this game changed my life completely and that's why it was always going to be my favourite game of all time no game did that to me and I'm just playing ffxii now for the first time and the game is amazing with loveable characters my favourite is balthier 😍😂😂 I love him, but as much as I love ffxii it never going to beat persona 5 to me
I dont know about this. I personally love P5 way more than Final Fantasy. I did not played to many FFs but FFX and FFXII are in my opinion not half as amazing as P5.
But it does has a ähm how do I put this? It has a lot of Kids Anime vibes. It explores dark stuff like blackmale, abuse, sexual harassment, corruption, suicide and stuff like that but its not like that a Kids Anime can not be dark ore have deep themes ore well written Characters. I honestly wonder if Persona 5 ore Digimon Tamers is darker. I would say from the fell and style of it P5 is like playing a Kids Anime. I mean its not aimed fore kids. Its rated M after all but it gives this feel Animes like Digimon ore Detektive Conan/Case Closed gave me when I was a Kid. It has this whimsicalness. I personally dont found thats a bad thing. Its actually pretty awesome. I mean look at Avatar Last Airbender. Its a Kids Show and it has been prized to high haven. Most people Adults and Kids love that show to death.
Now I personally love P5. Its the best game I have played to this day. And I am not the only one who loves it. But it could be that its not your cup of tea.
Maybe this Video can help you finding that out.
Prince Mwamba oh okay, but it probably gonna be one of those games they give u a 10 hours of story and then the rest is all Dlc i'm not buying an game incomplete then the rest of the story contents is dlc's like ffxv which is fine I can pay but nah not again
I'd put nier above persona 5 in all honesty, as much as i enjoyed persona 5 at points it felt bland ranking up some of the confidents. Nier, I didn't stop playing for a month, never bored, even with the grinding.
Star Ocean 3: Til the End if Time... "beautiful story?" This game and its plot twist ruined the franchise going forward.
I'd rather have Star Ocean 2: The Second Story/ Evolution, which has a PS4 digital release in Japan only.
I know these were based on on ratings the games all got, but I couldn't see how Persona 5 is the top JRPG on the system. Some of the games on this list were not only better, but a lot better than it in my opinion. It also pales in comparison to Tokyo Xanadu Ex+ which released near the end of last year as well, but didn't have the popularity of Persona 5. These ratings are more of what is the most popular, instead of what is actually the best of the games.
cramitycramcram yes I have played Persona 5 and after playing Tokyo Xanadu Ex+ I felt that a game like Persona 5 would have been about a million times better if set up like Tokyo Xanadu Ex+. Persona 5 felt like a chore to play through, being a fun game sure didn't seem like it was the point of the game at all. Personally I would rate Persona 5 maybe on a scale of 1 to 10 around the 4-6 range myself. Combat wasn't bad but the dungeons were a chore to play through and personally watching paint dry is about the level of fun I would say the game was, which is sad because I love turn based rpg's.
Wakane it's not bad. It's actually a pretty decent final fantasy title. I just got bored and really realllly disappointed in the later chapters. If you grind even a little bit, you are probably going to be op for the end of the game. Not a bad thing but I would've liked more of a challenging end of game. Some of the areas, like costlemark tower are just fucking frustratingly bad level design. Tight hallways where your group is constantly in your way and a shit ton of the same enemies in an area you can easily spend 2+ hours on if you want to find everything or if you, like I did, get lost constantly lol. The most fun part about the game is the visuals and wandering around on chocobos. I fucking loved riding the chocobos probably more than the average person lol. The story is meh. Feels rushed and kind of barren. Which sucks because I really love the characters. All and all, good game but disappointing. It's worth playing.
Wakane🙄the game is
Amazing bro. Get it. I think the people that hates it are long time final fantasy and this one supposedly is really different but it's a really cool game especially the fighting once you get the hang of dashing with the sword
if you like visual games , ffxv has amazing beautiful world , and fantastic mosnter design . Thats it , i played on day one, was one of the worst gameplay ever but best looking game ever. If you are okay with bad character design ( too kpop oriented , at least for me )Funny that i think side character and antagonist design was really good . Playing only with 1 character and button smashing counter attack , unfinished and unexplained story ... with fking 231312 dlcs...( they announced that will be more , even if you buy royals edition). Only thing that i can say for this game is wasted potential..
3/10 protagonist design
if i gonna get a JRPG for my bday
i thinking between these games
I am setsuna
tales of beseria
otherers i either have (like nier)
or not intrested in them.
i not interested in persona 5....looks complicated and i dont get it. with the talking to people and somone at gym said it changed him. What makes this game so great? somone please explain!
Trust me, I am kind of a casual gamer and P5 was my first of the series...it is not complicated at all, I mean if you want to 100% complete it yes, it may be a bit, but you can really enjoy the game without getting crazy. Just pay attention to time management. If you still don't have it I highly recommend it., I spent around 250 hours on it before getting bored (finished it 3 times, still miss 8 trophies).
bubbaXzone Yeah, best JRPG, if not understand the story, you can go watch the Persona5 animation, coming in this season. Just that, if u watched, u knew the all story of the games. Last week I just bought this games, none stop to play, addicted!
Sayd Monirul Islam it all depends from poins of view. I didn’t like ffXII at all, and i played every final fantasy from 1 to 10: 12 in my opinion is the first really shitty one. I liked the witcher 3 a lot
Little Anime Monster Eh, that’s your opinion ;3 I enjoyed travelling through the world and the character interactions, I enjoyed doing the secret dungeons and the different activities around the world. We both have different opinions, you might think the game is a mess but I don’t....
King Sora How can you say that any of the older games had "limitations" and then go on to say that XV's combat was any better? Like, you can use three moves and beat the entire game; heck, you can use one (circle) and call it a day. Magic is pretty much non-existent and you can't even summon at will... You can't use other characters outside of battle, even after all those updates... the game is a mess.
eric lin I played Day One as well, I admit the game was released unfinished but if you were to replay it now you’d have way more fun. Also the FFVII remake is using the same combat system and graphics as FFXV.
i played day one , dont know if u can play others character now , but they should let u play since day one and no on updates... dont get me wrong , i supported the game too FFseries , wishing they doing more games ... like ffVII remake. I tried to like it , but just feels off for me.
Trips, I hate ff 15 and it has nothing to do with the combat, the combat is it's only saving grace, and even that is only ok. The story is lame, the characters are even worse. It is a representation of the worst way to do open world. Get a quest to go check the onions on a guys farm, drive there for literally 5 minutes, fight one monster, drive back for another 5 minutes, get a follow up quest to go check carrots at the same farm...
why bc it's not turn based out dated garbage? Can't stand nostalgia freaks like you. Turn base isn't bad but get over it the times have changed and just bc a game isn't turn based doesn't mean it's garbage.
Sir Galahad they're offline games/ all of em/ sword art online online is kinda like the . hack series, being an offline game telling a story of a fictional online game/ if u have any internet connection on your PS4 than u don't need ps plus to download any title off the ps store/ even the f2p doesn't require a membership- jus sux that basic full price games do 4 multiplayer/ anyway, if u wanna check em out I'd suggest getting em used online through GameStop, or gamefly/ maybe Amazon with it's next day shipping/
Sir Galahad k koo/ do yourself a favor tho n check out the tales games/ I passed em by myself,thinking it was too cartoony, ( the cover is) so I understand why ppl would think it's too cutesy/ also, recently played sword art online:hallow realization/ u can create your own character in an open world fantasy world/ same thing with s.a.o : fatal bullet, but it's too futuristic 4 me/ a GameStop employee told me that the anime is making a movie involving the fantasy setting so we'll most likely see another sword art online with castles. PLUS,if shining resonance sells well, we might get another one/ hopefully, Dragon age comes out if anthem doesn't flop/ I understand your skepticism of that series
Aphiet Aprianto sorry but Dragon Quest 2 is considered a JRPG. It is an action JRPG, not all JRPG's are turn based. The action, turn-based, and strategy are all sub categories to JRPG. Can't think of any turn-based WRPG's though offhand, but there are WRPG's that are strategy and action based both. WRPG and JRPG are main categories where as action rpg's, strategy rpg's, and turn-based rpg's are all sub-categories.
Free Markets no cryptic storytelling is a western RPG thing were you always have to rethink their notes and texts Japan after the Super Nintendo era has been the Forefront of showing cutscenes for stories
