I finally beat vanilla p5. Took me exactly 83 hours. Beat it on Easy(just for a first playthrough) and finished at level 73. This game is hands down my favorite game ever. 10/10

Did you get the true ending? I remember playing on Easy and I completed in 105 hours. The game is absolutely beautiful. I don’t understand how it gets hate lmao.


whitewolfJS

True ending being they drive joker home in the bus right? That's the one I got


TerreneWhale89

Damn yeah. It made me so sad to see em go but the NG+ was so much fun.


whitewolfJS

For real, really sad. But now I get to spend more time with them and even others since I have the stats maxed


TerreneWhale89

That’s what I really loved, how so many things were carried over, imagine just being able to pay off your Kaneshiro debt on your 5th NG+ lmao.


whitewolfJS

That would be hilarious but then we wouldnt get Queen. That would be a real shame


TerreneWhale89

True, and we wouldn’t hear “Price” while running around and absurdly large bank.


whitewolfJS

True true. Gotta love the palace themes, even sweatshop is ok if you can get through the palace quickly


TerreneWhale89

My favorite is The Whims of Fate, groovy as hell.


whitewolfJS

It's the only one with lyrics too. Plus the casino isnt too long of a palace so it doesnt get annoying


bullexto12

Only 83? Geez, I just finished it last week and it took me over 150.


whitewolfJS

Yeah maybe it was because I was playing on easy but palaces and all that didnt take too long and I fast forwarded through inconsequential stuff like the people talking on the train and stuff

I dipped my toes into that dangerous water almost exactly one year ago. I had no life for about 2,5 weeks. I didn’t know what to expect but no other game has ever made me feel the emotions, excitement and just constant interest like this game did. It’s hands down my favorite game ever. Currently playing P5R and am about to finish the vanilla part of the game and once again, I felt the same emotions playing it. I can’t wait for the expansion part and to see what that has in store. Every time I play this game I’m just in awe as to how a game can evoke those raw emotions. I felt like a wreck after finishing the game. My body just didn’t have any more emotions to expend after the sheer dopamine explosion and emotional roller coaster of playing this game. People think I exaggerate when talking about this game but every person I know that has played the game goes through the same thing. The closest thing to perfection that I can think of. It literally is the holy grail of games.


whitewolfJS

I'm glad to see you feel the same way I do. This game is really something special


spooxzz

I just finished it too. Its 6 AM, and Im sad. It took me 130 hours but a lot of it was me leaving the game open and doing other stuff. When I started this game I wouldve never thought I was gonna really connect to all these characters, ending the game felt like I lost my friends. Probably my favourite game ever too, there are games I played that has awesome gameplay and story but no game has pulled me and made me get lost this much. It almost makes me feel like a weirdo how much I was connected to the characters lmao. I'll definetly miss it. But oddly enough, the ending was so satisfying that I didn't get sad as much as I expected. I got teary eyed and had trouble breathing but I'm glad I said goodbye to them in the game. Nvm I am actually pretty fucking sad right now I'm just gonna sleep it off


whitewolfJS

I feel the same way. I'm glad there are so many other kind people on here than share the same views and emotions that we do.


spooxzz

Ok since we both finished the game recently, whos the best girl? Im team Makoto all the way


whitewolfJS

Absolutely correct. I intentionally only romanced her and I will do so for all other runs I don't the game


zack_hudson

I'm glad you liked it


Darth2Nater

Wait till ya get to Royal 😂 it gets even better


noodle_mama

Congrats! I just finished P5R (in 160 hours haha) and it's definitely one of my top 3 games of all time too


CanaryWundaboy

The Royal platinum is apparently so much easier than the vanilla one, I’ve only played P5R but got the platinum first time after 120 hours. I then did a NG+ straight away and put another 77 hours in. I cannot remember the last time I played a single player game for 2 hours after getting the plat, let alone 77!


jym_jym

akechi saks and morgana is simp and p3(p) is better and p5 its style over substance (as if thats a bad thing) >!this is a parody of people that say this by the way!<


Wh1te-Vo1d

It took me 160 hours for Platinum but it was worth it. Try the twins' battle.


whitewolfJS

It doesnt matter how many hours it takes, I'll enjoy every second of it and I'll get the platinum too


Paradise_Viper

Congrats man! I was the same way. Took me a month or two after beating it to realize that it was my new all-time fave. Enjoy the NG+ runs and P5R if you go for it


Enaluxeme

I absolutely recommend playing this on hard. It's really satisfying.


whitewolfJS

Yeah I might have to. The level 2 pixies in kamoshidas palace wont be ready for my level 75 Thor


M4sterRed

Now time for NG+ or P5R. If you do NG+, you should try different romance options and to fuse Satanael and Yoshitsune. As for the Reaper, I tried with Yoshitsune, but I think it’s impossible without Inazagi no Okami (a DLC persona)* *If anyone can prove me wrong, tell me how to do it please.


qtDream

I beat the reaper on royal without dlc personas it’s actually really easy


M4sterRed

Ah, Royal! If you played P5 Vanilla, how much harder is it to beat the Reaper compared to Royal?


qtDream

Sorry for the late reply! But I also beat the reaper on the original p5 and I manly used yoshitsune or satanael and have a extra persona for debilitate and concentrate as I have charge on my yoshitsune so that was my strategy


whitewolfJS

Yep I started the NG+ already. Satanael is on the list for sure. Tho I'll have to get better at fusing as a whole. The first run was pretty bad lol


M4sterRed

For the fusions, I recommend you this: https://chinhodado.github.io/persona5_calculator/#/list


whitewolfJS

Alright cool, thanks mate


Goromorgana234

Neat


Chaosruler10

You shouldn't give P5 a 10/10. Don't do that


whitewolfJS

I know it has issues and all but I just loved it all the same. Realistically it's like a 9/10 but I just really enjoyed the game as a whole so i said 10/10


Chaosruler10

No, I meant... If you give P5 a 10/10 you don't have room for P5R to get a higher score :p


spooxzz

You had us in the first half, not gonna lie...


Chaosruler10

That was my goal haha. Glad I tricked you and maybe some others :D


whitewolfJS

You can always go higher! I bet p5R is a 12/10 haha


Chaosruler10

Fair enough haha


rjlehal_123

You should look into P5R!


whitewolfJS

I absolutely will be. I'll have to get a Ps4 or borrow my brothers when he gets back from college but Royal is already on the mind


dogshavemobiles

I'll take it from this that you're playing on PS3, in which case, note that Persona 3 FES is avalible on that system for quite a low price. I'm playing through it now, and while it can't hold a candle to P5 in terms of mechanics, I'm still having fun. Could be worth checking out of you have an interest in the earlier entries.


snrhnd

Can confirm, almost finished the first tartarus block, and so far, I like it.
