Persona 5 Strikers first impressions

I don't have time to button mash πŸƒπŸ”«

When I wrote about the free PS Plus games for January 2022 a few weeks back, there really was only one of the games that had me excited. Persona 5 Strikers was not the one that had my attention. I knew that I was at least going to take the time to try the game though.

I have never been big into Persona. In my eyes, it is just another JRPG, which is a genre that I simply do not enjoy very often. I have Persona 5 sitting in my library thanks to the PS5's PS Plus Collection, but I have never and probably will never play it.

I thought maybe P5 Strikers would be able to hold me with gameplay that reminded me of one of the first PS4 games I played called Dynasty Warriors 7. That one got old too, but Strikers was boring from the get-go. It just isn't my type of game and today's video will make that abundantly obvious.

The only good thing I can say about this game is the music and art style are both superb. However, that's not enough to keep me playing. The endless dialogue is so boring to me. I don't have any desire to learn about Persona lore. The gameplay seemed to be pretty repetitive, this is very much a hack and slash with lots of pressing square over and over until all the enemies are gone.

I'm not saying that Persona 5 Strikers is a bad game, but it definitely is not something that I wish to play ever again.

:P I remember playing the first persona for hours when i was in the hospital bed after my car accident in '98. but yeah, it's cool and all, but u get tired of it after a while. that intro was pretty cool tho.. i like when he rips the mask off the big, flying one.

Joker is super cool, but Persona games are just lame to me.
I can't imagine being in the hospital for a car accident. It would be hard to enjoy anything during that time, especially a game as drawn out and repetitive as Persona. I'm glad you survived and healed up okay.

I have Persona 5 sitting in my library

Based on what I have seen of your videos I suggest you leave it there. While it has gotten amazing reviews I found it extremely boring and I actually like turn-based combat. Also, your progress was CONSTANTLY interrupted by dialogue to the point where you no longer care what the story is, you just want to get on with it already.

I was so turned off by Persona 5 that I don't think I will even bother with Strikers. I'm back on a metroidvania kick at the moment anyway.

The dialogue thing is very common with anime themed games. They try to bring the anime to life.

I am not a true anime fan... I enjoy some here and there, but I don't know shit about it and clearly don't mind skipping through dialogueuntitled.gif

You must know my taste pretty well. I usually cannot get into that kind of game. Some turn-based is really fun, but it is rare for me... I love Temtem, Pokemon, and Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes for instance. The new Yakuza Like A Dragon game looks like it would be super fun too, but I'm super hesitant since I know my tendencies. My hope is that it comes as a free PS Plus game soon, I've seen it on a deep sale already, plus Xbox's game pass already has it on there. It is still crazy to me that Yakuza is on anything but a PlayStation console. I spent portions of my childhood fantasizing about playing it since I was an Xbox gamer for many years and had to resort to games like John Woo's Stranglehold, Strange Dogs, and others not as truly Japanese and Yakuza-eee.

What game are you playing now?

What game are you playing now?

I'm in the searching phase at the moment. I picked up a bunch of older titles for under $5 each recently and am trying to see if I should have gone to Taco Bell instead. So I wouldn't say that I am really playing anything right now... I'm in the search.

I know how that goes. I’m known to spend hours browsing the PS Store, only to do nothing more than watch review videos for all of the games and not actually buy anything. Gaming is fun for more reasons than just playing.

You are living proof that people love Persona. I myself am not one of those people.

Did you ever play ultimate ninja storm? It had this anime style theme as well but seemed much cooler.

I already read about Persona, watched a couple videos and decided I wasn't going to get it. It was kind of like Godfall but with a more fun anime theme.

The only time I've ever played a Naruto game was a demo on Xbox 360 15+ years ago. It always seemed cool to me, but haven't been hooked by any of the reviews that I've watched for Naruto games over the years.

I will say that I played Godfall more. Both I quit quickly.

What are your guesses for the free PS Plus games for Feb 2022?

I'm saying...

  1. Borderlands 3 PS5/PS4 since Tiny Tina's Wonderland is out at the end of March
  2. Super Monkey Ball Mania
  3. Shadow Man Remastered
    BONUS Horizon Zero Dawn since they gave it away for free in 2021 and some people missed it and Forbidden West is out in Feb.

Okay, maybe these are just not my dreams and not my predictions. At least I am trying to be realistic with the future.

Persona 5 is kind of a niche for its own little community I think.
My wife loves it, but I don't warm to it either! πŸ₯±

Persona games are very similar to "Sims", if you don't like real life simulators you won't like it. Its more of a dating, talking with others, making friends. Can get boring for most people, for me I have almost no real friends, no real life, so I really enjoy having it in game. Strikers is less boring than the rest of persona games because its combat is interestisng. In other personas we have turn-based combat which is also not liked by many people.

I used to have plenty of friends to do real life things with. I do miss getting to connect like that, but I’m happy with the few people I have left. Talking to people on Hive fills in the gaps. I can’t do Sims-style games where you live a life… maybe if it became like a super realistic VR experience like Ready Player One.
