Is it a game that you can play if you’re completely new to the series without hating it or being unable to follow the story?

Nier or Persona 5?
Either way, for both I don't really think it's necessary.

Persona 5 is my first game I've played in the Persona series. to my understanding, all of the "main" Persona games' plots are all standalone. I have talked to some people who played the previous ones, and they said the only benefit is that there are some Easter egg type references/callbacks to Persona 4 in Persona 5 that you won't notice if you haven't played P4, but otherwise you're not gonna miss anything.

Similar with Nier: Automata. I didn't play the original Nier, but everyone I've heard from says you don't need to and it's more of an "enhancer" than a requirement. It fills in some back story, gives you a bit deeper understanding, but the plot of Nier: Automata can also stand on its own.

still probably won't play it for months, though...hahah. Just too much to finish ahead of it.

Still working thru Persona 5. Honestly, I haven't even finished it, but assuming it doesn't totally SUCK at the end, it's probably gonna be my favorite game ever.



Good to hear. I want to get Persona 5 eventually.

This weekend is my birthday (and my PS4's first birthday) so I'll probably pick something up. Thinking of the complete edition of Horizon

That's great. Our local scene sucks, they take ages to drop prices. Aome really old games are still at 50/60. I'll probably buy it online.

In fact, I really enjoy visiting such shops when travelling just because we don't see them here.

I started this current carrier with Rangers in League 1 (2013-2014) took them to the SPL winning two promotions in two years as champion... Only won the low division cups and the Sco Cup (never managed to win the SPL though) took them to the Europa League QF

Joined Crystal Palace (Championship) after 7 years of Scottish football... got sacked by Palace after a 5-0 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup when I was only 4 pts away from a play off place...

joined Catania and managed them for 7 seasons winning promotion in my first season... No cups wins apart that vs Bayern (eliminating Lille S/F Juve QF, Vitesse and Blackburn in the process) I also participated in two more UEL editions one of which after being defeated in a Champions League play off vs Liverpool.

Now I joined Lyon...
