5 Things We Want From Persona 5

Callum May at The Koalition writes: We don’t see games like Persona very often. Branching out from the Shin Megami Tensei franchise and eventually hitting mainstream popularity with Persona 3, particularly in the West, these titles offer a balance between gameplay and narrative like no other. In most JRPGs, the plot works to drive the gameplay along and guide you through your adventures. However, Persona JRPGs are built in a way that the plot and the gameplay push each other along. You can not get anywhere without completing a dungeon and you won’t be able to complete that dungeon if you don’t engage in conversations with your friends, or in the case of earlier titles, other demons.

So when a brand new main series title was announced, I was excited. Persona 4 Golden still maintains its place as my favourite game of all time and I’m looking forward to seeing Persona 5 challenge that. So here is a list of the 5 things I believe would make Persona 5 even better than its prequel.

I need to go back and finish Persona 4. This series is pretty cool.

Never got a chance to get into this series but will definitely do so soon. Is it okay to start with Persona 4 gold or do I have to play the older ones too?

Each game is an entirely different story so you can pretty much jump in at any point. Although, Persona 3 and 4 are very different from 1 and 2 in terms of gameplay and stuff.

Ok cool. I keep hearing Persona 4 is the best game in the series but I'll def try the others when possible.

Like Canipa said, each main title have different story and protagonist so there will be no problem if you start with P4: Golden. But if you play Persona 3 than there are some cameo (place & character) that showed up again in Persona 4. The same could be said for Persona 1 & 2.

Hmm... I never had trouble using all the characters. I liked having them at even levels, they all had their own strengths and weaknesses, and none of them were boring (to me) to have in your fighting party.

Looks like an interesting series. I've never played but it seems really cool.
