Everyone's currently obsessed with Persona 5, and for good reasons I imagine, but I hope it's okay if I say a few words about Persona 4.
I'll try to keep this short, but I need to talk about Persona 4.
(But it's not time for a LTTP thread, not yet.)
First things first; this is my first Persona game. Never played a SMT game either. Unless you count +-20 hours of Tokyo Mirage Sessions.
Anyway, I played a bit of P4 Golden on Vita and it took me by surprise. I really enjoyed my time with it, but I don't own a Vita anymore, so I decided to buy the PS2 version.
85 hours later; i've fallen completely in love with Persona 4 and it's cast.
The way P4 "clicks" with me is quite rare. Psychonauts is a title that did, but my enthusiasm for this game and love for it's atmosphere, characters and overall vibe is more aching to how I feel about some of my favorite TV shows, like Buffy and Twin Peaks.
I just can't get enough. I hope there's still a long way to go because I don't know how i'll feel leaving Inaba and it's citizens behind.
I'm usually glad to finally finish a game that takes more then sixty hours, so that's saying a lot.
Currently trying to rescue Naoto in the Secret Laboratory dungeon.
Maxed the Nanako, Dojima, Yosuke, Chie, Yumi and Yukiko Social Links.
The romance that occured between my PC and Yukiko felt quite natural. It's the first time I encounter a "romance option" storyline in a RPG that actually feels, you know, romantic. Very cute.
A bit weird how it's rarely mentioned afterwards, though.
What are the key-items you get after finishing a Social Link for? Endgame stuff, I imagine?
The soundtrack CD included in the PS2 case was a nice surprise.
You might think i'd be sick of hearing Heartbreak after all this time.
You'd be wrong.
Oh, and the 2D art accompanying every Persona is fucking incredible.
This game is making me so happy. I really needed this in my life right now.
