What is peoples opinion of this series? I played SMT 4 and thought it was... OK. Pretty grindy and it took a long while before I really got into the whole “sacrificing your creatures” mechanic. Especially when I formed stronger bonds with them than I did with any of the characters. I also thought the story really took the back seat.

I thought Persona 5 was bloody fantastic though. Characters that really stayed with me, nearly no grind and I loved the school aspects of it. That the dungeon reflected someones sins and traumas was also really cool.

So how hype should I be for this?
