I started playing P5R a couple weekends ago; but I've got a history of bouncing off of Persona games so I held off talking about it until I knew if it would stick or not.
For this play-through, I've got two advantages that are keeping me from quitting as I have so often before:
- I am playing on Easy mode
- The game came with a ton of DLC items and money that's really making it easy to ease in
My biggest issue with Persona games up until now has mostly been the clock: I'm not very good at games and I usually grind to make up for it, but it's hard to do that when there's a ticking clock hanging over your head.
Plus consumables and items have always been scarce so even if I make the time to grind, I don't necessarily have the resources to do so.
But Easy mode is solving the "need to grind" issue and the DLC is, so far, giving me many many many resources.
I'm still in the first Palace, so I don't know if I'll actually stick with it long-term.
But, for once, I have hopes that maybe I'll actually see the end of a Persona game.
