Wow, you didn't tell me this game was actually fucking amazing. Like, ahead of every other JRPG [lol] ever made good.
I thought it was just a memegame with dante? Nobody said anything about having a God tier setting, customization options out the ass, fun dungeons/puzzles, sleek looking environments...
But it is. It's the best in mainline for sure, 1 and 2 are too outdated to compete, 4 is casual trash, and Strange Journey, while way better in the story department, doesn't have the same 'impact' as a full 3D title with proper locations and dungeons that aren't suffering.
If you're gonna bring some anime crap like DDS or Persona as an example I'll kek hard.
