The PS3 Game That Takes The Longest To Beat
For those looking for lengthy PS3 titles that are high quality, there are plenty of games to choose from — "Final Fantasy 13," "Dark Souls," and "Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain" are all excellent and demand dozens of hours to complete. However, one particular fan-favorite JRPG in the PS3's library can take gamers nearly 100 hours to finish.
According to HowLongToBeat, the average time to finish the story in ”Persona 5” is a whopping 98 hours, with a completionist run scaling up to 173 hours. ”Persona 5” is not only a JRPG but a social simulator that encourages players to immerse themselves in its world at their own pace — for instance, by attending school, working part-time jobs, or spending time with friends.
A lengthy game, of course, doesn't necessarily equal a good one, but “Persona 5” is critically acclaimed, with a score of 93 on Metacritic. "Persona 5" on PS3 is more than worth playing, both for those who want a lengthy experience on the old Sony console, and those who simply want to delve into one of the best JRPGs of all time.
