Alright, I’ll just say it: Persona 5 is a Game of the Year contender. Not only is the gameplay fluid and fun, but the story is what grabs the player and twists minds and hearts. With the varied roster of characters, the player can easily feel attached to the game, and even feel like a phantom thief themselves.
And did I mention the soundtrack? The music feels alive in this game, setting up scenes and making boss fights feel like they have meaning. Not one minute feels unimportant. This game is a must play and is arguably the best game in the last decade. (Almighty putting a game over Witcher 3??! He a fraud for real!)
