Persona 5 is really disappointing, it's story is by far the worst I have ever seen, and this is the franchise that has stupid fighting game plot. It's so self righteous in what it defines as 'evil' and 'just' that it really annoys me. They should've given the villains more character development instead of having them as mustache twirling villains that have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Yaldaboth is the same "Humanity sucks" as Izanami and Nyx, he's so stupid he doesn't even watch the MC when he chats with Caroline and Justine, he doesn't kill you on the spot when he reveals himself, which would be the smart thing to do, if he's already rigged the game why doesn't he make it so the MC dies if he decides to stand up against him.
Shido is so stupidly evil, he ascends into Palpatine status, "Muwhahaha, I'm so evil I have connections to the yakuza, I also kick puppies for a living!"

Akechi is the stupidest character in the entire game, that he can't even realize when he's in the metaverse. Hasn't he been using the metaverse longer than the Phantom thieves, so shouldn't he notice something was up as soon as he walked into the room? Also if he wanted to kill Shido so much, why didn't he send the phantom thieves after Shido, then kill him which would take care of two birds with one stone?

Why is Makoto so bland, why is Ann a moron, why is Ryuji so stupid, why can't they develop in the story?
Why do social links have to be the one way the developers have a way to pretend they can write for s***, when in reality they can't even do that.

Why is the battle system so s***ty? Why is it so simple, are they afraid for people to actually use their brains?

This is because Persona 5 is AAA game in Japan and it made to be attractive to casual players

*Complains about a bunch of simple things explained in the story. Asks if they're afraid for people to use their brains*

But because it's gamefaqs you can't be sure such an obvious bait thread is actually that.
Common sense is just wisdom with its sleeves rolled up

When was it explained why Yaldaboth didn't just kill mc after he rejected his deal?

Why didn't Akechi do the smart thing and manipulate events so that it looked like the phantom thieves killed shido so he could boost his popularity?

Why was the battle system designed for casuals who favor waifus over good stories?

Because it was always games for casuals, at least relevant trilogy games. P5 didn't started it, they just made battles and enemies more entertaining. And your 'why' is rhetorical question, cause you know the answer.
Sorry if you such a hardcore gamer that you seeing it as a bad thing. Maybe you should stick with SMT games then
