I finished Persona 5 without significant (months-long) pauses or breaks, which is remarkable for a game of its length. (For comparison, it took me about 3-4 years to finish Xenoblade Chronicles, will likely take that long to finish its sequel, and I like both games.) I would defend the story and its characters highly, even though I think it's about par for the course regarding depictions of women in JRPGs, for reasons I could discuss at length.
I've just started The Witcher III (on the PS4) and Dragon Quest VII (on the 3DS). I really liked The Witcher II for its story, but found the battle system fairly obtuse, so we'll see how that goes. I played about 20 hours into the Playstation version of (then) Dragon Warrior VII, but found it boring. Now that I've acclimated to the Dragon Quest sense of humor and charm, I'm hoping I can stick with it.
I've also been playing matches of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. I appreciate it mainly because it rewards hiding and stealth, about the only things I'm good at in a realistic shooter. Playing defensively, I can consistently make it halfway through the game.
"Than seyde Merlion, "Whethir lyke ye bettir the swerde othir the scawberde?" "I lyke bettir the swerde," seyde Arthure. "Ye ar the more unwyse, for the scawberde ys worth ten of the swerde; for whyles ye have the scawberde uppon you, ye shall lose no blood, be ye never so sore wounded. Therefore kepe well the scawberde allweyes with you." --- Le Morte Darthur, Sir Thomas Malory
