I feel you.. I tried to get into base persona 5 three times and just couldnt. Friend told me to get royal and at first still didnt like it and ended up loving it. I can't wait for strikers now!Persona 5
I have slept few times at the starting sections because i wasnt interested enough in the story and the gameplay, the game had a lot of pointless dialogue with nothing interesting to say, the dungeons were a slog as well.
Eventually i got into the game and i enjoyed it but i dont consider it to be excellent game, its just decent.
The premise starts interesting but as soon as you get to the slice of life school parts it becomes very boring, you have to talk to these new kids at your class and none of them is interesting, there is too much pressing X to read dialogue that it made me yawn so much, i like dialogue games but only when they have interesting things to say and not generic anime stereotypes, after that the first dungeon was a cool change in that you get to actually play the game but then after few battles the respawn mechanic and the shallow combat becomes a slog and makes the dungeon boring until the final boss, they the villains gets character re-write and you are back again to boring high school life. By the end i got used to it and started to enjoy the game, thanks to its art style and music, i think at dungeon 4 it became somewhat enjoyable then after dungeon 6 i started to enjoy and like what is happening, up until the end. overall i like the game but not as much as people like it and consider it goty material. I was glad its over and i dont think i will ever replay that game, it was a struggle to get into it but at least i ended up enjoying it.
