First of all, I would kill for a Persona 5 Endurance Run. Secondly, I think it would be even more awesome if Brad and Ryan played the game. I know we had a terrific time watching and listening to Vinny and Jeff, but part of what made this great is the fact that both of them had had limited exposure to the series before. Vinny had played some of Persona 3 while Jeff had only played the very original Persona on PSone. This led to some very interesting reactions when confronted to specific events and Shin Megami Tensei-crazy stuff. Now that they have played P4 from start to finish and logged in over some 100 hours of playtime, them playing P5 wouldn't be, in my humble opinion, as refreshing and interesting to watch as Brad and Ryan. Brad loves JRPGs so he'd be the one holding the controller while Ryan is being a dick and making fun of everything. It would be hilarious!
 
In any case, a Persona 5 ER alone is enough to make me squeal in excitement. However, I would very much like for Brad and Ryan to be the hosts this time around.

I don't know. Vinny and Jeff were, like... perfect for it. I feel like Ryan and Brad would drive me insane. Ryan would be derisive and Brad would fumble about a bit. I think Vinny is absolutely necessary, just cuz he sets a really good tone.

how bout vinny jeff ryan and brad? sounds good to me

#4 Posted by MonkeyGekko (278 posts) -

Hmm. I think I would rather have Vinny and Jeff back in the seat. I associate them with both persona and the endurance run, and I think it would be a bit to have Ryan and Brad take over, no offense they're both awesome. And I really doubt Ryan even wanted to. Also I'm fairly sure both Vinny and Jeff had played some of P4 before the endurance run and P5 would be a new set of characters. But anywho, that's just my opinion :P

I just want a Persona 5 in general.

#6 Posted by OllyOxenFree (4969 posts) -

Ryan would not do it as he does not care much for JRPGs.  Also I really don't want to see Brad doing the playing.  No offense lol.
 
Just stick with Vinny and Jeff- but this time let Jeff play and Vinny commentate.

#7 Posted by LiquidPrince (15623 posts) -

Nah, I think it should stay with Vinny and Jeff.

Right, for neutral resoning alone, vinny and Jeff is fine. 
 
worked fine.
#9 Posted by Addfwyn (1914 posts) -

I'd be fine with Brad there, but I don't think Ryan would fit.  I can take him in small doses, but an entire game worth of his more derisive attitude?  I don't think I could stand it. 
 Plus, I feel he wouldn't like Persona games anyway, so it'd be unfair to him.
 
I like Brad a lot, and I think he'd be fine at it, but I think Vinny and Jeff do a great job as well.  Any combination of those 3 would be perfectly fine with me.

#10 Posted by AuthenticM (3672 posts) -

The thing is, Jeff and Vinny make a great duo, and so do Brad and Ryan. It has got to be either duo.

I doubt Ryan would do that. You saw how he walked away from the Jurassic Park quick look because of silly dialogue.

#13 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11034 posts) -

I don't think that would work. Ryan would spend the entire time trashing on the game, and Brad (assuming he was actually playing, which sounds about right in this situation) would fumble around with the controller like a moron, die a bunch, and give up. In either case, I wouldn't expect them to finish it. I think they did well on the STO beta run though, so they can work together and be fairly entertaining. Just not for Persona.

I just want a Persona 5.

#15 Posted by Kombat (2205 posts) -

Pretty much what ArbitraryWater said.

#16 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

Both of those guys are great, but they would tear each other apart over the course of an Endurance Run.

#17 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

It seemed like Ryan had no interest in the persona 4 Endurance Run. So, I don't think he would be willing to do a persona 5 Endurance Run.

#18 Posted by Dirty_Harry (717 posts) -

Vinny and Jeff have put so much time in persona 4, they know how the system works and know the story.

Persona 5 would probably not be following the Persona 4 story.

I think Dave should get in on it.  He's a great RPG guy, and I always love listening to him.

Correction: he's a great Western RPG guy.  From the White Knight Chronicles Quick Look, and from the guest appearances of Dave in some of the Endurance Run episodes, I don't think that would fit him at all.
#22 Posted by BirthWild (252 posts) -

First of all Brad isn't going to make it through the endurance run because he'll die so much he'll quit? AM I RIGHT? WOOOO.
 
 
yeah if Jeff and Vinny are up for it again which I think they are, I want them back casting bufu when you shouldn't and eating steaks.

True...but maybe this could be his gateway into JRPGs?  :P
#24 Posted by Ham08 (202 posts) -

Jeff and Vinny were epic.  I don't know why you would want to mess with that perfect chemistry and success.  I vote for Jeff and Vinny for the P5 Endurance Run.  No contest!

#25 Edited by Icemael (6271 posts) -

If there's one staff member I don't want in the next Endurance Run (if there's even going to be a next Endurance Run), it's Ryan. If there are two staff members I don't want in the next Endurance Run, it's Ryan and Brad. 
 
I enjoy their conversations in Quick Looks and on the Bombcast, but in an Endurance Run, they just wouldn't work.

don't think ryan would have the patience to sit through 15 minutes of a persona game.

#28 Posted by Stryfeman (19 posts) -

As you've all said it would be torture for Ryan and It'd be torture for me having to watch 100 hours of Brad going ''oh my god'' constantly

Well, to be fair, it was funny having the equivalent of that reaction always happening with Jeff and Vinny every time they saw a new enemy, as they didn't know what to expect.
#30 Posted by Stooch (44 posts) -

As much as I think the other guys are great to listen to - I can't see Brad or Ryan producing many truly funny, memorable "best of" moments for P5. I love 'em! But Vinny and Jeff mesh well together.

Yeah but thats a different thing, I've inveted the Giant Bomb drinking game, watch a Brad quick look and down a shot every time he says ''oh god'' or ''oh my god'', you'll be off your face after the 2nd quick look

It would only make sense to keep the people who are experienced with the last entry.

#33 Posted by Ventilaator (1501 posts) -

Gosh darnit people, let's have a Persona 5 first.
And stop assuming that the existence of a Persona 5 automatically means a guaranteed endurance run.

#36 Posted by TooWalrus (12985 posts) -

No they shouldn't... Brad would be Ryan's bitch the whole time, and there's no way Ryan has the endurance to play an entire Persona game. Brad and Vinny should do the next endurance run, IF it happens.

#37 Posted by scarace360 (4828 posts) -

CONFIRMED FIRST DAY PERSONA 5 COMES OUT A NEW ENDURANCE RUN WILL START EVEN IF THERE IS ONE GOING ON AT THE TIME.

#38 Posted by Evilsbane (4348 posts) -

No I would need Jeff to still be there, his random outburst are the reason I followed him to this site.

#39 Posted by Animasta (14463 posts) -

Is that couch big enough for Brad, Vinny and Jeff? if so, that would be great

Vinny and Jeff is the ultimate duo. Vinny is impulsive and quick, Jeff is the advisor!

I'm not sure I would call waiting for the shadows to turn around every freaking time impulsive and quick.

In the mind, in the mind.

perhaps if they made one....

#44 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -

I just can't see Ryan and Brad doing an Endurance Run on a JRPG. Let's just wait until the existence of Persona 5 is revealed first?

Which means none of this really matters since Persona 5 in English probably won't be out before 2012.
#47 Posted by muttjones (95 posts) -

Well Jeff and Vinny are the funniest so I'd like them.

#48 Posted by Sanj (2239 posts) -

Vinny and Jeff for crazy JRPG endurance runs. Brad and Ryan for everything else.

#49 Posted by CaptainObvious (2981 posts) -

Vinny and Jeff duo are the best.

#50 Posted by Damodar (1158 posts) -

Ryan wouldn't enjoy Persona and I wouldn't enjoy Ryan being snarky about Persona. 
 
Also, 100 hours of hearing Ryan breathe? No.
