I'm aware that this was the case in a lot of old JRPGs, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. It doesn't make it a good design choice intrinsically. Sometimes it can work, but I think Persona 1 and 2 could have benefited from a little more buildup.
It doesn't have to be the same length as P3/4, but just a little more.
The thing is, you have to stop having modern day expectations for old as fuck games
P1 and 2 are very old, and back then the games were all about the gameplay and the development, the intros were week
Just go with the flow and talk to a lot of people
I'm not trying to fault Atlus so much, like I'm saying "You hacks, learn to write a story" because they are old. But at the same time, "It was all we knew back then/it was the standard at the time" doesn't make it good now, especially if you're jumping into those games after playing 3/4, like a lot of people did.
It's not like it destroys the games or something, but that doesn't mean it also can't be a little grating.
I jumped straight into P1 after P3, and i did not care a single bit about how different it was
The game was old, i did not judge it like a new game
The story is still enjoyable, just get over the intro and the rest is fine
This. I started P2 after seeing people praise it as the best story and what I got was characters awakening to their persona because a girl called a dude undie boss. Everything was rushed as fuck and the reactions to the weird shit were ridiculous.
In the other hand as I played further into it I found other things from old games too that won me. The way characters and their issues and interactions were treated back then usually felt more genuine. Nowadays Japanese media has their check list of shit to include to appeal the otaku and many things end feeling very repetitive. Characters like Lisa would create a huge backslash if they were created now, homo is more blatant so the fujoshi have their share, but it always has to be in a way the player understands the character is ultimately straight (Yosuke) instead of less and more subtle hints but ultimately gay (Jun.)
Old writing has its flaws, but it has its pros too. It depends on which weights more for you.
On this wild crazy carousel of life
I was pretty much going to go with my endgame P3 team: Mitsuru, Akihiko, Aigis, Yukari. I was surprised to find that Shinji was even in the game, but I guess I shouldn't complain about that. I haven't finished Strange Journey yet, but I think I'm going to go ahead and keep playing Q.
I'm bored and finished most MegaTen games.
Is there a point to go for P3P? I've only did FES.
Is that Minako chick worth a whole playthrough?
I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that it's a VN
The FeMC route gives you a mostly different set of social links, and changes some events/adds new ones
If you've already played FES, might as well. The VN thing is grating sometimes, though.
Isn't 5/5 a holiday in Japan? Part of Golden Week? I don't think we should expect anything meaningful from Atlus Japan on 5/5. Atlus USA might do something but I doubt it. They're probably waiting on E3.
Best we can hope for is something from p_kouhou on twitter reminding us of the blu-ray in June.
I'm not here to sing.
I'm here to DANCE. There's nothing left for me to do but DANCE. All these bad times I'm going through just DANCE.
Can you prove that? What if the world would cease to exist without me?
I don't understand why people would hate Marie other than her bitchy side but who doesn't have one? Personally, I think it makes her more "real" as a person someone can connect and empathize with rather than agreeing with an ideal of a goddess. She's sarcastic and cute in her own way; her attitude towards writing poems reminds me of someone trying to release their inner thoughts (like how a shadow reveals stuff about their respective character) although she could use a little more work as a lyricist. Lastly, she could match off against Rise in their competition for their beloved Yu-senpai..~
My preferences in anything > Your preferences in anything
isn't that what the internet is all about? unless the person in question is one of those faggots who think people have some sort of obligation to like everything.
You're weird. Stop being weird, you weirdo.
Oh yeah, guess I forgot about them.
We already agreed that that will an older woman. This will be true because Atlus listens to us.
I'm anxious to hear the VAs for P5. I want to know what Morgana sounds like.
Although we'll play it dubbed if we don't want to wait an eternity, it'll still give us an idea about the direction they're going with them.
I just want P5 news, thats all.
Is that too much to ask, Atlus?
