2019: Finish Persona 5

For someone who loves the Persona series so much, it’s unfathomable that I still haven’t beaten Persona 5. Really, it took the P3 and P5 dancing games to come out earlier this month to reignite my interest in picking P5 back up. So right now, I’m about halfway through my year at school (and thus, the game itself). I’ve just completed the final team member’s palace, so I believe I’m

Since I hadn’t played any of the past games, except for maybe an hour of the first one back in the day, I was coming into FFXV

Games of 2016 – Persona 4 Golden

Persona 4 Golden is probably my favorite game of the year, though it was technically released a few years ago. I started playing it in January after finishing the spin-off P4 game Dancing All Night (which is also great). Though the gameplay is fairly repetitive, you’re basically dungeon diving for each of your team members most of the time, it’s the story and overall immersion that drew me in. For
