I started playing FFXV recently, and my first impression was how similar to The Witcher 3 it seemed: open world rpg, combat feels very similar, even the Chocobo aspect feels a lot like Roach. Turns out the team loved the Witcher 3 and played a ton of it while making their game, so naturally the fingerprints were all over the final product. In the end, it feels like a bit of a blend between JRPGs and W3, but just a poor man's version of W3. That isn't criticism, just about any other game pales in comparison to the Witcher 3 in terms of storytelling and ambition in an RPG. In comparison, Persona 5 feels as JRPG as it gets. The style was excellent, the storytelling started out incredible although I thought it lost a lot of steam as it went along, and the slice of life aspect was a great counter to the dungeon gameplay. My big problem with it was the boring combat system, which was really no different than anything that could have come out in the late 90s. I'm still not sure why most JRPG's keep the same combat system despite all the increased possibilities from better graphics and increased processing power, and it brings down an overall incredible game in P5.
