Posted under What I have been doing for the past five months, The Brilliance Of, Persona 5 Royal, Persona, Persona 5, Persona 5 Royal, no idea what else to put

First of all, I would like to apologize for not uploading an article in... 5 months. I've been busy, with school and playing this game: Persona 5 Royal. (Sidenote: I never actually played the original Persona 5 before.)
Simply put, this game is amazing. It has so much going for it. An awesome story, soundtrack, and battle system, along with the extras found in Royal; and that's how I am going to be ordering it! I figured I would try a new style  for The Brilliance Of, being, listing all of the greats in a certain order, and going in depth about each one. Starting with the story, here is why Persona 5 (Royal) is brilliant. Oh, yeah, major

                                                                                                                                   SPOILER WARNING
                                                                               Considering I am going to be going the entire story, this is your turning point. Play this awesome game and come back later if you haven't.
   Story:
I will be going over my entire playthrough and strategy (or lack thereof) and discussing it along the way.
When I originally started this game, I played up until I got to the part in Kamoshida's Palace where it shows Ann in a bikini, wearing cat ears. I stopped immediately, and didn't continue playing until January 2021. After that, I got lost throughout Kamoshida's Palace a lot, and every time, looked up a guide, and used it to continue further. I did this off and on throughout the rest of the game, too. Kamoshida's Palace is very disturbing, and it could probably be the most disturbing Palace except for Futaba's. When I got to Shadow Kamoshida, I was a bit confused about his look, with his tounge sticking out everywhere and all, so I asked a friend, and apparently, it is a popular thing in anime. Next is Madarame's Palace, which I got through at a steadfast pace the entire time. The moving paintings disturbed me the first time, but I got used to them. besides that, it wasn't very disturbing, as a stark contrast to Kamoshida's Palace. After that is Kaneshiro's Palace, which is the Palace I got stuck in for the longest time. The problem was in finding the camera box to stop the two guards guiding the Laundering Office. I checked bug reports, Discord servers, basically anywhere I could find, and nothing came up. Except for a YouTube video guide, which helped me and I beat the rest of the Palace using guides after that since I didn't want something like that to happen again. Next is Futaba's Palace, and it's in this part of the story that my mom joins in, which considering the story, is both ironical and upsetting. It was super depressing: all the stuff in Futaba's Palace. (Although I did kinda like the hadcker [side?] story part of it.) After that was Okumura's Palace, which I would say was super quick, except for one cr4ucial detail: the boss. I literally could not beat the boss at the difficulty I was in, (Easy) so I aswapped difficulties to Safe. Now back to the bigger picture of the story: It was at this point that Akechi really starts to take notice of the Phantom Thieves (he had done it before) and I hate Akechi, (that's my opion) and the story focused so hard on Akechi, it was kind of making me angry. (I think that's the point of this story) Another Boss Focus Point: Cognitive Wakaba Isshiki. My mom was there the entire time, giving me points; because I had never bought enough healing items, this battle took me 40 MINUTES to beat. After that... monstrosity, we move on to Sae's Palace (Niijima's Palace), which, being long, was not hard, save for the maze section. And then Joker gets arrested. I was so afraid of this that my body was literally shaking. Akechi tries to kill Joker (which was pretty much expected, to be honest, [from me anyways]), and the games tells you to save. It is revealed in the Velvet Room (when I think velvet I think red, not blue) that this was all a ploy by the Phantom Thieves to trick Akechi. Sae joins thwe Phantom Thieves' side, and they take down Shido. Nothing really happens after the press conference Shido had due to his change of heart, and the Phantom Thieves are out of options. Morgana brings up Mementos, and apparently you will get arrested again(?) (Why is it never explained?) You change the public's heart, defeating Yaldabaoth, aJoker turns himself in, thereby removing his criminal record in a court case against Shido, and Joker moves out. The end(ing) that I got.

The story was really great, however the ending was a bit anticlimactic.

   Music:
The music in this game is, like the rest of the game, brilliant. There are only a few tracks that I don't like, being Yaldabaoth, and The Whims of Fate. In fact, I like it so much, I listen to it as pretty much 75% of all music I listen to now. As I am writing this article I am listening to Persona 5 music. When I am playing Smash, I always pick Mementos as the stage, not only because I like Persona 5 as a game, but also for the music.

   Battle system:
 I've always liked RPGs' battle systems to an extent, but, like all other things that it does, Persona 5 Royal masters it. I've heard complaints that the original Persona 5's battle system was bad, so that just proves my point even better. I don't really have anything to compare it to, however.

   Extras for Royal:
Due to my failure to increase the neccesary Confidants, I never got to experience Maruki's Palace. I do really like Maruki (I have not seen his backstory, so if it is dark, don't be offended) and Kasumi. the Thieves Den is wondrous, and I bet before Persona 5 Royal came out, people were wanting something like it a ton.

Thanks for reading me rant about my new favorite game! Sorry for the wait!
