Apparently It wasn’t enough for Persona 5 when it was voted as the BEST RPG OF ALL TIME by Famitsu readers earlier this summer, as P5 has claimed yet another almighty crown. This time?? Readers of the ever famous Japanese gaming magazine have bestowed upon it THE BEST GAME OF ALL TIME!!!!!
Issue 1,500 (DAAAAMN) of the worldly renown magazine hit ths week, and with it was their version of the Top 100 games of all time, as voted by gamers, the staff, and even celebrities!! When voting ended, a total of 5,287 submissions were received (Yes, we know…such a tiny, winy percentage of all gamers in Japan) and the votes were counted. Persona 5 IS THEIR BEST GAME OF ALL TIME! END OF STORY! THERE IS NO FURTHER DISCUSSION!
Ok, so maybe we can discuss it. There was some other categories, too. Of course, Persona 5 won best RPG (again). What console won the best of all time? PS2, closely followed by the PS1. Seriously! A 1% difference! Best publisher? SEGA!!! I’ll post the Top 25 out of 100, for kicks. I guarantee that it’s 100% different than what most Western gamers would vote for it.

Brah. I love Persona 5. I really do!!! It’s most likely my Game of the Year. Easily one of the best JRPGs I’ve played in years. Best game of all time though? I don’t know about that. Let me (finally) beat it and i’ll let you know if it makes it into my Top 50 games of all time.
Another note. Dragon Quest XI released after polls were closed. Would be interesting to see how different results could have been..
So tell me, what do you think about this, lovers of Persona? Worthy of the praise or Overrated? Comment below, Brah!!
