p1 "they suddenly found out they could summon personas" welp..... I dunno if they're preventing spoilers or nah

8:31 "Boss fights can be unfair towards the end." *Is demeaning a game because you suck at it even allowed on reviewing sites? That's bullcrap that she's allowed to put that in the review!*

No idea how it didn't win game of the year. Zelda is way behind in many aspects
BrandonAKZ (3 months ago)
It's kinda funny hearing "I smell a game of the year award",after knowing it was actually Zelda BOTW. This is still one of my favorite PS4 games tho. MHWorld is number 1.

"I smell game of the year award" Message from 2018. Doesnt happen. Zelda BotW stole it from Persona 5

Is there a even you skipped the original game and went straight to P3P?
J Cs (5 months ago)
Wait, you skipped Persona 3 and Persona 3 FES. But you included P3P, I thought you said only mainlines? you also skipped Persona 4 and Persona 2 Eternal punishment.
The first persona game i played was persona 3 on my ps2 back then on 2007 and persona 4 on 2008 . I have played several smt games . You could name of. P1 and p2

Hej what to play ,can you love and like my comment
Bef1234 (5 months ago)
Fun fact the spin-offs CANON
Chunky Tubs (6 months ago)
If your gonna talk about Persona 3 and not use P3FES as the game then something is wrong. P3FES is the game that represent the fourth installment to the series(SMT:P, P2:IS, P2:EP, P3FES) as it's the best game and tells the whole canonical story.

Whats the music title name starting from 0:06 -0:18? Is it a soundtrack from persona?

Why did you talk about the PSP verision of Persona 3 rather than FES?
Video Vodma (9 months ago)
Jojo's did it first
Rosa Rodriguez (9 months ago)
p3 fes is better than the psp version with NO CUTSCENES trash lol

I would laugh my ass off if this channels videos were translated into wookie and klingon

Where is persona IF?
AtOutoftheBlue (10 months ago)
Nanashi IF is not a Persona game. It served as a major inspiration for the high school settings of the Persona series, but it is not an actual Persona game.
boohoo723 (1 year ago)
I did kinda have to laugh at P2's "the story is not connected to that of the first game" when, aside from the cast of P1 coming back and being playable, one of the plot points is the main villain of the first game running around as a zombie and revealing his "Persona" from the first game was actually an evil demon and the actual main villain of the first game and the entire series.
Brian (6 months ago)
You'd be hard pressed to find a video by whatoplay that isn't riddled with inaccuracies, poor grammar, and bad pronunciation.
Jim Biafra (1 year ago)
Eternal Punishment came out on the PS1 back in the day.
Mobie (1 year ago)
Im glad the the franchise as grow bigger with this launch. I just dont stop seeing P5 reviews and everyone's talking bout Atlus. Brings hope, more sells = Better quality games from Atlus, I just hope they dont transform into Konami. GG!

Persona 4 Arena isnt a spinoff. its canon
Nightmare / Ruri Akumu (10 months ago)
all the spin offs are canon tho
blackstarGOaT (1 year ago)
Persona is the king of modern RPGs. Fuck FFXV game was so disappointing
whatoplay (1 year ago)
I don't see the point why people compare two different games. If you're a gamer, any game you like a game worth playing. FFXV was good, and so is Persona 5. :)
blackstarGOaT (1 year ago)
Zephyr Weiss nah the game was easy. Beat it in 25 hours
Zephyr Weiss (1 year ago)
its still awesome. you just suck at it
Kazymedic (1 year ago)
Am I high or can I get eternal punishment on my Vita? :Checks Vita: Nope, there it is. Weird.
YaBoiNozino (1 year ago)
Kazymedic its the ps1 version
Kazymedic (1 year ago)
Thanks for the video, but please do a mic level check.
Kazymedic (1 year ago)
There is if you're on a hifi headset for the first 45 seconds of the video. There is too much gain.
Zephyr Weiss (1 year ago)
???? theres nothing wrong with his mic
WesTG (1 year ago)
I'm getting this game, even though I never played any Persona games😊
maxalej (1 year ago)
I think that Tokyo Mirage #FE is more Persona than Shin Shegami Tensei
Ian Hsieh (1 year ago)
Should Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE counted as a SMT game or Persona game?
The Silent Dragon (1 year ago)
Ian Hsieh I thinks it's counted as a SMT spin-off
LanceTheeGamer (1 year ago)
Persona 5 will be well received, but I doubt it will dethrone Breathe of the Wild for Game of the Year.
Vergil (1 year ago)
but there are reviews scores for persona 1,2 and 3
whatoplay (1 year ago)
Yeah. But our database collects both Critic* scores and Gamer* scores. There are hardly enough Users who rated these classic games.
DemonFoxHYPE (1 year ago)
Futaba better be worth it, she looks cute as hell
Simply Dad (1 year ago)
Please stop comparing Persona to a series that came out literally years after SMT.
Adam Epp (6 months ago)
Do you mean Pokemon? Because the first Pokemon game came out in Japan before Persona 1, although it took Pokemon a lot longer to get localized and receive a western release.
ILFPPAF _ (1 year ago)
P5 is definitely going to beat P4 for its fan's Favourite title.
Adri Acts (2 months ago)
Most people still like p4 better although for me p5 is my favorite
Leon Courtney (1 year ago)
This girl butcher's all the reviews/over views she does. A+ for effort B for pronunciation, but she sounds hot so overall she gets a S+
Sight Beyond Sight (1 year ago)
They forgot to mention the anime releases.

Sight Beyond Sight is better that way

Great video! I submitted captions for brazilian portuguese and they're awaiting review by other users :D
vmf_victor (1 year ago)
just a little feedback though: the last minute of the english captions is just a single "line" until the end of the video and since I can't add more "lines" I did my best to end the video with the thanks to people who contributed previously. but still, nice job.
whatoplay (1 year ago)
Thank you so much! I'm sure our Brazilian subscribers will appreciate it. See you on the contributions wall! :)

persona fans... I like how it looks n all but could you give me reasons to buy it? I never heard it until last year but always hear it mentioned (friendly question, just want to hear reviews and thoughts about it)

how are you I am Arabic I watch all your videos is very good do you love Arabic people
Kate Mc (1 year ago)
So there's no way this will be on anything other than playstation?
Kratos (1 year ago)
Gamespot gave BOTW a 10 when it got framerate issues, but Persona 5 a 9 when the boss battles are a little unfair.... biased much?
Crystalchild X (1 year ago)
nice video thank you very much. why the different scores for X360 and ps3 regarding the fighters tho?
whatoplay (1 year ago)
Sometimes Gamer/User reviews can affect the entire PlayScore.
White Light (1 year ago)
I just love how people wasted their money on ps4 to play this when its available on ps3 I only spent like 130$ (ps3 + persona5 Japanese) ( I apologize to everyone who got offended by this comment)
Jim Biafra (7 months ago)
White Light I also got a PS Vita just for P4 Golden.
Jim Biafra (7 months ago)
White Light Not only did I get a PS4 to play it but I bought both the PS3 version and PS4 version plus the Steal Your Heart special edition for the PS4. I really love Persona.
White Light (1 year ago)
im not talking about future games im only saying about persona 5. If for example persona 6 become ps4 exclusive then i will buy ps4. But i see your point.
Nintendo Worlds (1 year ago)
Think about it like this later for those that bought the ps4 and persona is only on that console the ps3 owners are screwed lol
White Light (1 year ago)
if you read more carefully all my comments you can see that i wrote "and im talking about buying ps3 ONLY for playing persona 5" For me it is a wise choice to buy ps3 only for persona 5 but everyone is willing to do whatever they want with their money. It is great to have your own opinion, so I don't want to harass anyone it is just my opinion even if it is a harsh one. (im glad noone said about my horrible english skills)
Trickster (1 year ago)
I know I'm gonna love P5. It has a interesting, different concept which unsurprisingly gave it a high score. And Shoji Meguro is making some of the music! Atlus could have uploaded an April Fools video telling us it is delayed, but my heart wouldn't take it... While we're on the topic, who else bought/pre ordered the Take Your Heart collection?
Trickster (1 year ago)
Persona 4 Golden deserves a playscore above 9! If you're new, the main games are unrelated, but do have some references here and there, 1 and 2, 3 and 4. I recommend to start with P4G as it is one of the most critically aclaimed for a reason! For me, it is worth buying a PS Vita for the game, but PS TV is probably cheaper!
alex blokstra (1 year ago)
Getting mine today. They sent it too early. No complaints tho, really looking forward to this game.
whatoplay (1 year ago)
Lucky! Goodluck on your journey! Wake up, get up, get out there!

I have feeling persona 5 will be getting 9.78 and that's coming from someone that has been playing all the persona games plus spins off and the devil Survivor series
whatoplay (1 year ago)
**fingers crossed**

persona 5 is a 10/10

Wish I had a PS4 for this game.
Zephyr Weiss (1 year ago)

Felgrand Luciferiuum (1 year ago)
Don't have one either. I only have a Vita..
whatoplay (1 year ago)
It's also available on the PlayStation 3! It's cheaper and there's not much difference between them. :)
