Opinion: Persona 5 will be a better game than Final Fantasy 15

I call it as I see it.

In case you have bad taste in video games or have been living under a rock for a long, long time, you've heard of Final Fantasy. You might have also heard of Persona as well, since it has quickly become one of the most highly respected Japanese titles in the West. What we just recently learned, is that these two JRPG franchises, one an old powerhouse trying to make a come back and the other a spin-off franchise that has become more highly revered than its progenitor, will both see a September release. In japan at least...

There was a time when Atlus may have considered moving their game's release date far away from a Final Fantasy release, but that certainly isn't the case now. Atlus is the hottest developer in the Japanese gaming industry today, making everything they touch into a golden experience of polish and style, while Square Enix has let themselves be overcome by an inability to say “No” or follow a budget of money or time. Maybe Atlus just wants Persona 5 to steal Final Fantasy 15's thunder?

As a complete game, Persona 5 is probably going to be much better than Final Fantasy 15. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I hate hype culture in video games, but here I am drinking the kool-aid. So why am I getting hyped for Persona 5, and why am I claiming it will be better than Final Fantasy 15?

Lots of reasons actually.
