If you have to grind in a game you're doing it wrong or the game is

I don't mean grinding in general, I mean the grind, as in the repetitive gameplay loop that you go through over and over and over (in this case, the combat).

And if you mean 'you're tired of playing the game by then so who cares' then that's a whole other, much deeper problem that shouldn't be brushed aside because you should never get tired of playing a game to the extent you just want to not play it anymore

The game is 100 hours long. Even if you absolutely love the combat, 100 hours of the same gameplay WILL get stale, unless you're super motivated by extrinsic rewards and don't really care about the gameplay itself like SHINE.

That might be a fundamental flaw of the game, or of JRPGs in general, but I don't think it makes the whole game bad. ESPECIALLY if they specifically put in ways to skip the repetition towards the end, so you can choose how much you want to keep going, which Persona always does. Plus, the important thing is the context of the combat inside the larger year-long daily life loop, which is highly addictive and always changing and interesting. Plus this game adds palaces which are super cool even if you ignore combat.

Games with deeper gameplay can be played for thousands of hours because as you get better at the game, there are more complex nuances revealed, and the gameplay basically transforms into another game. JRPGs like never have that, which is just part of the genre. They don't have the advantage of metas and player competition like multiplayer games.

You get the ability to make infinite money in the game at rank 2 for Sun. Price is a complete non-issue after that.

And there are plenty of 'crazy abilities' (not that I'd call EITHER of the problem examples here 'crazy abilities' since one is just more options in a shop and one is 'you get all the money ever') in the game that don't completely break it, like pretty much every one of Hifumi's abilities which are all super useful but don't make the game less interesting.


I mean I realize this is just opinion at this point but I don't even think "infinite" money is that good! Equipment is fairly meaningless, you want good defense gear but the attacking gear just needs to be "good enough." Gear is time-gated so you can't skip ahead to ridiculous levels. The only impressive expensive accessories are the Invigorate ones, but like I said earlier it seems like you're more expected to one-shot dungeons. So, most of my extra money goes to social stuff, or messing around with Persona fusion, which is a GREAT thing given the extra Velvet Room mechanics they added that I would have just ignored if I was constantly broke.

Sun 2 and 5 should probably have been switched just because 2 is just way better. But let's be real, it still requires grinding to get amounts of money where you can buy absolutely everything you want, it just makes it easier.
DPOblivion was far more determined than me.

Minor vague spoilers: Ann's social link concluded kind of really boring

This is fitting, as Ann as a character is kind of really boring.

Like, she's not offensively bad or anything (which is to say she's not Ryuji) but she's just kind of... there.
