Besides the Persona/misc SMT games, which plenty of people have gone/will go to bat for, I'd say Tales of Berseria makes a good case. I was a big fan of Symphonia back in the mid 2000s and then none of the other Tales games really grabbed me after that.

Berseria doesn't have the strongest overarching plot, but the party dynamic is amazing. You're not really out to save the world as much as complete the singular task of getting revenge on the guy who ruined the main character's life, who the rest of society idolizes and adores. It feels like playing the likable mid-tier villains in a normal jrpg, rather than the clear-cut heroes. That was cool and new to me, as a big fan of the genre.

I'm diving into the game tonight. I don't know if it'll be any fun, but I DO know that I'm ready to beat my roommate at bingo.

Ahh, I love the ever helpful "I don't even know who/what that is" commentary. Super cool to pop in ONLY to make it clear that you're completely above knowledge of music that you're not the target demographic of in the first place. (And MULTIPLE people did it! Very original and funny, especially after seeing it 5+ times.)

Modern pop music is unoffensive and fun. Not sure why people feel the need to be wet blankets about a topic other people enjoy rather harmlessly. CRJ is a good kid.

Slowly working my way through Tales of Berseria. I loved Symphonia back in middle school, but never got into any of the other games past Abyss (which I never even finished).

I'm going the distance with this one. I love Magilou more than I can ever remember loving a spellcaster in a JRPG. She's my Everything and I want her to be happy. Velvet and the rest of the supporting cast are all pretty compelling so far too! I have no idea how far I actually am in the story, which doesn't surprise me much. Symphonia had a lot of meandering that sort of sometimes interacted with plot stuff too. All I know is I can't wait to start slapping down those haughty blonde exorcist siblings again. Playing as the 'villains' is a super fun approach to a game like this.

Here's a question: I've only watched Jessica Jones and I really loved it. Should I watch Defenders? Will I be totally lost with all the Daredevil/Luke Cage stuff? (I don't really care about Iron Fist at all.)

I'm also a Kojima person. Quite a few Japanese names I learned before I understood the correct pronunciation of the individual syllables (aka when I was, like, 12) have just fallen by the wayside for me. I can't be fixed, I'm broken forever.

Tales of the Abyss, Persona 1, and Persona 2. I don't want to know how many times I've played the first two hours of these games, stopped, then tried again a year later. I've had all of these games for more than 5 years. Maybe closer to 7-8.

I unearthed my PSP and bought a new charger off of Amazon so I could get back into Pesona 3 Portable. As of June 2012 I'd already put 175 hours into it and left a shiny NG+ with a level 99 FemC waiting for my future self. I was already in November, so I just had to slide into the bad ending after one or two hours of play to start over with a new game.

I still love this game with all of my heart. I keep accidentally pressing the wrong buttons during battle thanks to P5, but I'm gettin back in the right mindset. I'm near the end of October after about 27 hours, so my NG+ file has officially cracked 200 total hours. I want to max all these S. Links and date every single boy AND girl on Port Island. I have 90% of the compendium complete and I want to beat Elizabeth this time around.

I'm ready.
