Why do you feel differently about Goro Akechi depending on whether you’re playing Persona 5 or Persona 5 Royal?

Hey, Gamers! This week we’re making the well needed return to Persona 5 Royal.. and the original. For those who don’t know… I write about these games a lot because they take up about 70% of my thinking time each day, if not more.

Hey, Gamers. This is a shorter post but it’s one that I know at least one person out there is expecting. So you guys know that I’m playing through Persona 5 Strikers over on Twitch.
