    What’s on y’all ‘s wishlist for the next Persona 5 years from now? Lol

    Mine:
    -University setting (choose a degree)
    -more in depth romantic relationships
    -more control over freetime. More to do during freetime.
    -bring back clubs/sports
    -customizable protagonist

    Also, since 4 was a mystery as detectives, 5 was being thieves, I think the theme in 6 should be either pirates or ninjas.

    I just hit the gym. Over and over and over again. +1 HP all the way. More with supplements! I wonder if you can actually hit the HP cap. I think I got a bit close.

    For the next Persona? University's been talked about over and over. I doubt Japan will stray from their teenage characters, but I'd like that change. Honestly, I didn't have many complaints regarding P5. The beginning was a bit slow. Could use with some more freedom. Shut the fuck up Morgana. I don't even want character customization, I liked P3, P4 and P5 protagonists, they had a fairly unique look and characterization, something would be lost with a custom character.

    I’m actually thinking more along the lines of backstory than looks al la Dragon Age Origins

    If University,

    Are you an athlete on scholarship?
    Are you a poor student?
    Do you your parents know people and that’s how you got in?

    What’s your degree? Are you studying to be a doctor? A lawyer? Etc.

    Each of those starting backstories could provide different starting stats or Persona

    That certainly would be interesting in shaping certain aspects of the game.

    Often in Persona it feels like what you do doesn't matter, and my biggest gripe is, without a doubt, your friendship group dynamic not changing when you hook up with one of the girls. Honestly, I'd be kind of hyped if even a change like that was made, just reacting to the fact that we're suddenly together!

    And as... fun... as hitting the gym was day after day, I would rather something with a little more gameplay depth... (pulling this out of my ass) imagine if you could get a job delivering Tofu to hotels in the mountains Tak Fujiwara style, and suddenly there's a racing mini-game in Persona because you took that job.

    Things like that.

    So the dancing game is out
    I’ve always been incredibly confused that persona has dancing games

    They take ages between main entries. Makes sense if they can cash in on their ip in between.

    I mean yeah...I agree...but a dancing game?

    It's just an odd genre switch. You go from tactical/horror to dancing. It's just odd. It's not wrong, just weird.

    Tactical horror? It's a dating sim / dungeoncrawler. They also have a fighting game series.

    (Persona has never had any reasonable genre expectations.)

    Catherine is really weird too, another one of their games.

    I liked P4 Dancing all night a lot (totally ignored the story), I'm not jiving with any of the songs in these ones though. Also nothing as adorable as Nanako dancing to the Junes song with her Big Bro :3
