I think it's that the game could have better spent some of its runtime. A few late game characters and plot points could have afforded to been explored a bit more thoroughly, IMO.

It's an odd comment to make in a review but just have to hope that her score didn't take anything from the fact it wasn't a vita title.

Presumably she judged the game for what it is instead of what it isn't, but rpgs in general feels a lot better on handheld than sitting on the couch for me.

Maybe both she and I will get our wish, when Persona 5 Ruby rolls around for Vita or Switch.

Yup, absolutely. For various reasons, I was shocked when the end of the game appeared, because I wasn't at all ready for it. A number of things were just getting up and running, there were expectations from previous games, and so on.

Wow, that review intro...

Real talk: if you've played Persona, if you've enjoyed JRPGs, if you even have a passing interest in Japanese media, there's absolutely no reason to read this frankly ponderous review. Persona 5 is everything you've wanted: style and substance distilled into an experience worth waging cultural wars for.

Only a 93 on Metacritic? I thought that the critics were going to like this game more, too bad.

Edit: 94 now which seems better given the insanely positive coverage this game was getting

I'll go blind. Best way to enjoy a game like that in my opinion.

Yeah don't be too downer about it guys. The fact we're getting two 90+ games within as many months is pretty much insane in this day and age, and 2017 hasn't even started to sing yet.

If you want to do everything in one play through, you're going to have to hardcore use a guide. That's all I'll say.

From the EGM review:

Japan has some complex cultural opinions on LGBT issues, but how a company like Atlus—a studio known for putting care into more “fringe” types of characters—could so blatantly portray gay men as child predators bothered me. It’s especially disappointing because Persona 5 features one other prominent LGBT character, and I found them not only to be a fun foil for another NPC, but also pretty spot-on for people I’ve actually met in Japan. Atlus is the Japanese company I look to the most with hope for some well-written and developed LGBT characters, and yet, this is now three games in a row where we’ve gotten examples of queerbaiting and/or gay panic from the studio.

This sounds extremely disappointing. Maybe even thread-worthy :(
