If you're going to jump in - which I recommend if you like RPG'S - set aside lots of time. It took me 136 hours to finish.

I don't regret it. I actually miss the game.

I had never played a JRPG before until I bought this digitally some time ago.

The hype around this game was massive, but I cannot for the life of me understand why?

I was 12-15 hours in and got nowhere. From what I read, the 'intro' is around 20 hours?

Anyways, this game wasn't for me. Again, not sure what all of the hype was about.

The game is about the story, the relationships, time management and fantastic systems in place for a turn-based JRPG.

If you're not a fan of the grind, I think a lot of us would understand. I would suggest turning the game down to easy mode so that the dungeon running isn't as tedious and just play through the story. You might get a little more enjoyment that route.

That said, the game demands a crazy time commitment. I loved it through the 75+ hour playthrough but absolutely understand why a game like this would be either too overwhelming or just wouldn't click with some. It is an evolution of an JRPG...but in the end, it's still an JRPG.

Well, they announced Persona 5 R. Looks like it might be releasing at the end of March.

Makes sense why they lowered the price on this.

PIcked up a used copy for $20 at EB Games. Been playing for 2-3 hours. The intro is very slow and I wouldn't recommend this as a first RPG to newbies. Seems good so far though.

Thanks op picked it up. Def slow intro, however I also watched the 1st few eps of the anime so that's prob why it feels this way as I essentially know the plot.
