The Week In Games: Back To School

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Back To School

It’s time to leave childish things like tower climbing, cyborg-dino slaying, and planet scanning behind and go hit the books.


In case you weren’t feeling buried enough under the weight of all those open world RPGs, here’s another 100+ hour epic to eat away whatever remains of your time an sanity. I can’t wait to tell my future grand kids all about the glorious wonders of how I spent my 20s. “Well you see when I wasn’t working at my job I was staying up late studying algebra and history inside a high school simulator. It was so great. You should have been there.”

What can I say these are strange times we live in.

Persona 5 will be the first game I’m going to play in the series. Does it matter if I haven’t played the previous entries?
