Which game is the best out of these three?
There is an objectively correct answer to this question.
>I really enjoyed Q's dialogue
You can't be fucking serious
Also FES as a whole is shit. Muh toaster, fuck off, The Answer is shit, made to pander to aigisfags, destroys all the character development they made during The Journey. I'd pick Vanilla P3 in a heartbeat if The Journey didn't had some really needed changes in FES too.
>I really enjoyed Q's dialogue
Chie: HAHAH MEAT
Akihiko: HAHAHA PROTEIN
Shinji: AKI YOU MORON
Akihiko: NO YOU'RE THE MORON
Rei: SOMEONE SAID FOOD I LOVE FOOD
Junpei: CHIDORITA LOVED FOOD TOO AND I LOVE HER
Koromaru: WOOF WOOF
Your typical Persona Q dialogue, ladies and gentleman.
>mfw someone was paid to write that
Why was Junpei always talking about this thing in PQ anyway? I don't get it.
>not covering P3 with undeserved praise
Don't ever dare to say that on 4chan, people here think that Ikutsuki and Strega were the best villains ever, the cliched evangelion clone plot is the best thing ever written by mankind and the "twist" in the end was more emotional than marley and me, la vitta è bela and bicycle thieves combined.
The only reason you fags hate P4 so much is because tumblr loves it. Admit it. Everyone mocked P3 and called MC an emo manlet faggot before P4 came out. But as soon as tumblr started their idiotic theories about Naoto being trans and Kanji being gay and whatever shit they discuss suddenly P3 became a masterpiece and P4 ruined christmas and everything else and only ledditors and tumblrtards liked it.
P3FES. I find Persona 4 uninspired and boring. PQ has okay gameplay but is a joke otherwise and should have never been made. I wish milking of P4 and 3 stopped already but its unlikely seeing how many retards Persona 4 attracted.
>hurr i love p3fes!
>posts an aigis picture
what a fucking surprise
that's like P4Gfags saying they love Golden and posting a fucking marie picture. of course they do, both games are aberrations made to pander to the shittiest waifu possible.
Figurativelynobody has ever said that, P3's story gets shit all the time too. It's just that P3 is a lot better at pulling your heartstrings, meaning people easily get attached to it.
If you're trying to use the "what /v/ thinks about Rise "Risette" Kujikawa" as some kind of proof /v/ likes P4, i have bad news for you.
They are all good in their own way.
I cant find a physical copy of P3FES in stores anymore
And on amazon is costs 45€
I really want to play it but Im not sure if I have the time for everything in the game
Does the game make you keep playing or is it only for commited player with free time and tolerance for grinding?
>game A is part of C series with game B
>game A panders to bad people
>bad people bandwagon the C series
>some of them end up playing game B
>they bitch about how it's not like game A
>they are now the majority of the fanbase
>company owning C series now makes endless spin-offs trying to appeal to the bad people
>characters and plot from B game forever ruined
>original fanbase still waiting for game D
Any other good friend simulators? I already finished P3 and P4 like 10 times each.
Beats me. Placeholder for FES?
In the magical era where videogames were actually immersive and not targeted to normies you were supposed to spend a lot of time with them.
And who the fuck doesnt own a modded psx and ps2?
in P3 if you hit a weakness you knock the enemy down, if you hit him again he gets up. enemies takes one turn without attacking when they get up on their own
in P4 you hit a weakness they go down, you hit them again they might get dizzy and lose the next turn. if they don't get dizzy they get up and attack the next turn, unlike P3
which led to really easy ways of cheesing the system in P3. solo MC, hit weakness, wait. it's basically infinite turns for you unless you miss.
aww shit I haven't seen these pics posted in forever
In what way P3 and P4 are good ? Especially P3, explain to me how the plot and ESPECIALLY those fucking bland characters (goddammit) are well done. Seriously did you guys never played an interesting RPG ? Even Xenogears which is rushed and superficial is far better than P3F and P4G. (p3 won the title of the most overrated PS2 game)
>Does the game make you keep playing or is it only for commited player with free time and tolerance for grinding?
If you can't go with 5hrs+ sessions then it's not really for you. If you get bored fast and has no attention then it's not for you too. Game is around 90hrs long, add 20 hrs more for the Answer so yes it is only for commited players with free time and tolerance for grinding.
>People praising P3 for the story
Nigga what? P3's story had fuck awful pacing.
Like halfway through the plot just takes a left turn and fucks around with Junpei and some Goth chick in the hospital for 3 hours. What? Tartarus? Who? Fuck it, who needs plot progression anyway?
And the Answer sucked too.
At least P4 streamlined the fuck out of the Scooby Doo murder mystery.
but p4's knockdown system is even easier because if you hit any target with a multi-target spell, you get a second turn
none of that shit matters when you get a FREE turn, then another FREE turn for knocking the guy down with another multi-target spell
You know what bothered me about P4?
The fact that there were no fusion spells. I don't care if it's super happy, or its a different environment, or if it's forcing waifus or whatnot. I loved fusion spells. When I played P4 I was hoping they expanded on that or something, they just removed it. Why?
P3fags are the most arrogant faggots I've ever met.
Persona 4 is a better game because it had better gameplay mechanics, slice of life felt more realistic and there are more things to do in P4 than P3, that's all.
"muh scooby doo" "muh not as dark and deep as P3" "muh otaku pandering" playing persona 4 and expecting dark and deep plot is just retarded, this game wasn't made for that purpose. Thinking P3 is a better entry because it is darker and deeper than P4 is fucking retarded when there is a series named Shin Megami Tensei which fucking blows P3 in all of these aspects, but I'm pretty sure you're just faggots who discovered JRPGs with FFX
I disagree, what bothered me in P4 was removing the three physicals. Never liked having to carry shit personas to use fusion spells anyway so i never used them, and it's not like you're required it to beat the game, it's easy enough without cadenza or armageddon.
>because the game decides to focus on something different for a while to show character depth, the story is bad.
kill yourself. "pacing" is a horrible reason o critique a story.
>hurr the pacing is bad because character development
You can't use this excuse shitlord. There's NO character development during the weeks MC waste being sick, or sheltered during a typhoon, or training for summer competition, or studying during summer school. Days and days that go by with a single "YOU DID THING x TODAY" just to push you towards the next full moon. And there's even less character development in the end of the game, when Ryuji gives you time to pick a choice and then abso-fucking-lutely nothing else happens for the entire final third of the game except "oh maybe you can finish a social link or two"
>on which you just sit on your ass without NOTHING TO DO EXCEPT TALK TO AIGIS
This, Aigis' character arc is the best example of how terrible P3's pacing and writing can be (and this is coming from someone who likes P3 and Aigis a lot). She just kind of sits around for 5 months with literally no development, becomes interesting when Ryoji shows up, goes offscreen for the most vital part of her development to happen, then gets forced down your throat for the last part of the game.
>something different for a while
>to show character depth
Nice try faggot. While the game does different things all the fucking time it rarely leads to character depth.
It's just fucking around for no reason. If that's your definition of 'muh slice-of-life experience' P4 did it better.
That's going to be hard to impossible. As they are really different games and focus on different things. Each has its own style, progression, story and mechanics.
They are all good for different reasons, 4 is really damn good but I still prefer 3. I'm sure I will feel something similar with 5.
I would like to see some love for 1 and 2 though.
>I would like to see some love for 1 and 2 though.
It's hard to really like RPGs with shitty battle mechanics. P2 specially. Both games are too outdated, the negotiation shit is specially grating, if only they had used the one from SMT instead.
Are you talking shit about babybabybaby?
Hey man, I like the P3P soundtrack too but that's over the line
Yes, i am talking shit about Babybabybaby. It's annoying, specially after hearing it for hours. It's far from being the best track from P3 OST, but faggots only remember it and DEEP BREATH DEEP BREATH when they talk about the music.
I liked P4's score better. More diverse and stuff.
At least, more than endless trumpets, grungy guitar riffs and fruity Jap hip-hop.
I still liked the P3 ost, though. It had some real gems.
I prefer to play on the original console with the package right next to me.
It's very impractical but that's the just how I roll
Maybe when I get a big break from real life I can get on it. Thanks for the advice though, anon
Really? I personally felt P3 was a bit more diverse with it's music. Heartbeat, heartbeat, Your affection and Signs of love are great, but they do sound a bit similar. But god damn, I loved SMILE, reverie and I'll face myself (non battle). It really added to the emotional scenes, and I don't remember that happening with P3 as much.
I spent like 120 hours completing FES. Something similar for my P4 playthrough, completing all the optional side shit.
I played in 3 to 5 hour bursts, any less than that will probably leave you frustrated since you're not getting anywhere with just 1 or 2 hours per sitting
Holy fuck how do you idiots like this shit so much
here, because i'm pretty sure everyone forgot about that.
YOU BATTLE LISTENING TO THIS. ALL THE TIME. YOU HEAR THIS SHIT ALL THE TIME
Battle music can't be so annoying. You need some variation, you need to extend it more, you can't have this shitty "BABYBABYBABYBABY" and trumpets as the first thing you will hear every time you start a fight. Hell, the battle music was the only good thing about PQ because they understood this and even then it's not a very good song. P4 battle music is awful too and i don't want to talk about fucking Lone Prayer. The only game who truly got it was P2
The rest of the music is good. I like the way Meguro took for the general feeling of the OST. But Mass Destruction is awful and makes me want to pierce my eardrums after two hours of grinding.
P4 had some good calm songs contrasting with all the cheery jpop too
As much as I think the P3 character development was a bit simple and kinda rushed, I much preferred it over P4, mostly because I enjoyed seeing the characters in P4 evolve in their S. Link, and then BAM completly forget it the next time I see them in the story. At least in P3 they showed, even if it was minuscule, their development in the story. In P4 that barely happened, or when it did it seemed out of place or a bit late. Maybe I'm going crazy, since I haven't played the game for a while, but I remember feeling that way.
>YOU HEAR THIS SHIT ALL THE TIME
No, we hear the song, thats just the babybabybaby part poorly looped that you posted.
>P4 had some good calm songs contrasting with all the cheery jpop too
so did P3
Also, it had the better battle theme in PQ
Seriously fuck you p3fes fags. You made me play fes because EVERY single one of you told me that fes was the best version.
>You can't control your party
That's so fucking retarded. I must grind alot just to insure that the AI won't fail me. We all know how awful the AI is please don't lie to ourselves.
The story isn't really that worth it. Pretty much nothing happens Shinji dies. Nothing happends, obvious plot twists game ends. The only thing that's really going for it's the characters. And yeah the answer is not worth playing I had enough of that shitty gameplay.
>The character development of the main cast in P3 is an integral part of the story.
Sure it's an integral part of the story, but it doesn't justify the month-long tangents the game seems to take all the god damn time.
The point the other guy made was basically 'you need the shifts in tone and plot progression because that's where the character depth comes from!' which is horseshit.
The intro's supposed to get you on edge, like, "get ready for some tight shit" kinda feeling
P4's battle theme always struck me as odd by starting right onto the vocal tracks, that felt weird
>letting /v/ control what you play.
It might as we'll be a meme.
I think BABYBABYBABY is funny so I like it
>i give up trying to understand someone's opinion
thank fucking god, just go into every argument from now on with that mindset and you'll be a better person
While P4 had those songs, I also feel like P3 had different kind of music. I guess the ones that stick out the most are for me such as Deep Breath, Joy and Changing Seasons. I'm sure I need to play those games again, but I feel like P3 had a better balance with both heavy/dark sounding stuff and happy/cheery stuff.
Also, I prefered Memories of You over Never more, and The Battle for Everyone's Souls over The Almighty.
Seriously, The Battle for Everyone's Souls for the final boss and then listening to Memories of You after the ending really fucking made the game.
>The intro's supposed to get you on edge, like, "get ready for some tight shit" kinda feeling
This kind of mentality works for boss music fights.
Not for some music i'll be listening every single shitty weak shadow fight i'll have while grinding.
But that's okay, you like it, i don't. The world goes on.
Same song dipshit, just played differently. You're not going to play the same song twice in a concert. Stagetime is precious. Of course they will play the version of the game they milk right now.
When people say P4 they're probably thinking about Golden. Golden did a lot better than vanilla with the soundtrack, some of the new tracks are really good and fitting for the mood.
>Of course they will play the version of the game they milk right now.
P3? Because i don't know if you realized it yet retard, but PQ and both arena games had P3 milking too, AND right now they're milking the P3 movies and Aigis figmas
how dense and stupid do you have to be to say the fighting games are not p3 milking too, holy shit
why are you complaining about the rerelease when P3 had FES and P3P? Stop being retarded. Next you're going to complain about mangas and drama cds when, guess what, P3 HAD MORE OF THOSE TOO
Jesus fucking christ. Why it's so hard for P3fags to admit their fucking game is getting milked as fuck too. I get that you want to hate P4 with all your heart but at least have some goddamn criteria.
>they don't have vitas
>I said 2 posts ago that P4 is the one they are milking right now
And that's just not fucking true you moron
>i do not care to find out
You still care to say shit you don't know then. Good fucking job.
Q> 4 > 3
Golden (everything else)
FES (Aigis pandering and The Answer)
Portable (/ss/ better gameplay, everything else)
It's okay. I like Master of Tartarus and I'll Face Myself better, I think
P2's are barely boss battles though. Mostly it's just some nerd with a Persona, and like the rest of the game they're absurdly easy
Resident Evil in a nutshell.
except RE4 was still the best game in the series
>And that's just not fucking true you moron
>why are you complaining about the rerelease
I am not, simply reinforcing my point
>I get that you want to hate P4 with all your heart
What does that have to do with anything? Plus I like p4.
Atlus is in full P5 mode now. Even DAN is being used as a medium of hyping P5 with that P5 that will come with the pre-releases. And the only reason we're having DAN now and not 2014 is because they delayed the fuck out of it while bickering with Dingo. Right now the only things Atlus are worried about pandering to are the P3 Movies, P3 figurines and hyping P5
Persona 3: FES. While the cast isn't the greatest, it has the best/most diverse social link choices. Hanging out with a TV con-artist, with an old couple that lost their son, and then the QT 3.14's that decimate anything Persona 4 has to offer.
Persona 4 drags on for far too long. Also the social link system is a mess due to how things are scheduled.
>not even posting the most comfy song from P4
The only P4 songs that compare to P3 are Snowflakes and Face myself reincarnation.
Should have known better than to go on a fucking a persona thread when I just started FES
>it has the best/most diverse social link choices
Dude, i like P3 as much as you guys, but the social links on it are HORRIBLE. Fat faggot Noizumi, Bebe the french faggot, that shitty kid, the guy with glasses no one ever bothered, fucking Chihiro, damn, it's full of horrible links everywhere.
The ones that are good are REALLY good (Monk, Tanaka, Akinari) but the rest is really bad or forgettable.
>Are the P3 figurines good at least?
The Aigis one is
Dunno bout the rest.
>I'm too stupid to set tactics
I just don't fucking get it I never had a problem with AI. How are there still people that are too retarded to set the knock down tactic.
these same people will complain about the mc being used as a healer while everyone else just wails on the bad guys
i don't know, people just like playing video games or something man
People who say The Answer destroyed character development in P3 are clearly Yukari fags who don't understand Yukari's character at all.
Thank you for showing your retardation
He's right though, Nocturne's dungeons suck compared to other SMT games. Every path that's not the right one ends in a chest after ten seconds of walking, and the biggest hazard you find is stairs and elevators, with the occasional "push the buttons".
>Playing persona 3
>Hyped because I`m at the ending
>Beated faggot jesus, they let him live, whatever
>Up, find Nyx Avatar
>Fighting him for like an hour
>Nigger uses moonlight shit that makes him untouchable
>Never turns it off
Fuck, I was so mad that I went to sleep inmediatly. I can`t bring myself to play it again, I waited 2 hours for that shit to go down, and now I have to start at point one.
>literally nobody beat that boss on their first try
I guess only you didn't
It's the final boss, you grind like crazy, you get max level and then you go. Of course you're going to get your ass handed if you go lvl70 or something, but that's your fault. Grinding in Monad is piss easy anyway
MC is the asshole one, always agreeing with everyone just to farm social link shekhels
Hidetoshi starts as an asshole but then he realizes friendship is important and puts his ass on the line for MC
THE ARCANA IS THE MEANS BY WHICH ALL IS REVEALED
I did it on my first try by the power of pure hype
Spoiler alert for that one faggot that didnt play p3
Who the fuck had a problem with Nyx Avatar? That pussy was a completely underwhelming boss. I beat him at lv 80 like I was his pimp. All you gotta do is pick a party whose weaknesses you can negate with accessories, which is what you should do in every fight anyway.
>literally nobody beat that boss on their first try,
I sure as fuck did. Wasn't even hard. Had way more trouble with several of the monthly bosses before him.
>I wouldn't even call Monad 'grinding', enemies are so high level in there, if you go through once you hit 99 pretty damn quick
Not 99 (I know from experience), but yeah, Monad gives crazy amounts of experience and in the start you're going to gain a level in every fight.
I tried playing Persona3FES and I'm right now in the middle of july. The grinding is so fucking boring, can I do anything to lvlup faster? Most fights arent even hard, just tedious. Every level of the tower feels the same and i've heard there is like 200 of them. Fuck that shit, I'm not even in the middle of it.
How do I speed things up?
Honestly PQ is what I actually want from a Persona game, just polish it up a bit more. It's a fanservice game, and yeah it does feel like it. I'll never get over how awful the dungeons were in P3.
>on which you just sit on your ass without NOTHING TO DO EXCEPT TALK TO AIGIS
You only get to that situation if you maxed out every other social link by december. And if you did that, you're following a walkthrough so shut the fuck up.
Though it was retarded that the last month in the game starts with a weeklong mandatory vacation, and that you can only do social links at school so you basically had to sit out a week.
The same thing that you faggots always complain about P4 happens: Nothing. You're waiting for a certain date for the plot to advance and you can do nothing but walk around and try to do social links, but P3 social links are totally retarded (lots of links you can only see one day, lots of links that disappear during arbitrary dates and events forced by the game) and that's it, just like when you rescue someone too early in P4
But when P4 makes it is awful, when P3 does it it's okay! Like everything else, because P3fags are biased as fuck and fail to realize both games are equally anime and shitty, but one is sad evangelion and the other is happy scooby doo.
In Tartarus you should really just run past shadows and find the stairs as fast as possible. Only kill shadows if you're cornered, or doing a request for Elizabeth. Grinding is largely pointless.
>In Tartarus you should really just run past shadows and find the stairs as fast as possible.
Yeah and then you get your ass handled to you by a midfloor boss because you're not grinding at least enough to get decent moves
Fucking terrible advice.
He wouldn't even go past that spinning tower shit this way, let alone spinning table or the jotuns
I honestly never had a problem of running out of shit to do in P4. Even in the off days I usually had 2-4 social links fighting for my attention.
My main issue with P4 is that it's so small in scope. You're not saving the world, you're chasing after one douchebag killer. P3 had this sense of impending doom right from the start, the unspoken implication that the whole world will be swallowed in this apathy syndrome bullshit if your merry band of the underage doesn't sort it out (implied until they said it outright). Meanwhile P4's plot is just "a supernatural killer is on the loose in your shitty town!". And yeah, that's bad news, but it's not exactly end of the world bad.
(Disclaimer: I've only played P4 to about the halfway point.)
Like ten hours of that is just pressing O and X repeatedly at the fusion screen to get the skills you want inherited.
I'm so fucking glad they finally removed that random skills garbage from the series.
The small scope kept P4 focused, in my opinion.
In P3 whenever the character was fucking around again I was going WHY AREN'T YOU GOING BACK TO THE WORLD-ENDING DOOM PLOT YOU FUCKS.
WHY IS THIS WEEK/MONTH OF DOWNTIME ACCEPTABLE TO YOU
It's not like you can spend the time grinding up because tired/sickness mechanic so you're forced to wait.
>My main issue with P4 is that it's so small in scope. You're not saving the world, you're chasing after one douchebag killer.
That's what i like about the game actually. It's refreshing not being TEENAGE SUPER HEROES trying to fight for the world and the good of mankind every time. Sometimes it's okay just to be dumb adolescents and chase what's good for your city because you live there.
Even when the plot takes a larger scope after finding the true culprit anyway
>Trying to play Digital Devil Saga
These shadows. Fucking why.
>literal hallway dungeons
>skill cards for ez babby mode
>skill inheritence is babby mode
>less elements than p3
>marie and teddy
>worse music than p3
>worse setting than p3
>worse characters than p3
P4 was anything but focused. The plot was so badly paced. The ultra-world ending calamity is something you have to casually deal with the night before you leave. There are giant stretches of the game where nothing happens (usually after they fake-out that you've resolved the entire plot) with no sense of when something is going to happen. Persona's full moon deal added ever-present tension that something was going to happen at some point.
Not only that, Persona 4 did exactly what you describe too. You can put off rescuing
Nanakodespite the urgency the situation merits, same with Adachi, and continue with your normal life. And after you've completed this "big event" for the month, there's laborious stretches of time where nothing happens. Persona 3 was way better.
Additionally, P4 had very few s. links at night for some reason, likely because of the extra number of stats. This also didn't help.
>skill inheritence is babby mode
It's literally the same thing as P3. You just don't have to spend 50 minutes pressing cancel and retry trying to transfer the skill you want
>uehuehue that's babby mode too ez
There are retards for everything i guess.
>Persona's full moon deal added ever-present tension that something was going to happen at some point.
And then you character went around fooling with little girls or spending an entire day playing MMORPG or teaching Fucka how to cook while a super duper shadow could kill then tomorrow.
Both games had bad pacing and no sense of urgency.
Why does everyone pretend Persona 2 doesn't exist?
>a game with a small scope until the last second handled stretches of free time worse than a game where you had exactly the same stretches of time but an ever-present doom weighing down on you and you decided to hang out with student council and some fat kid anyway
anon who are you trying to kid
Well what are they supposed to do? You're waiting for the full moon to come to you, not for you to go to the moon. I don't really think it's comparable to P4, which did the opposite.
And...? Doesn't change the fact that P3 had way more linear and boring dungeons than P4, which was that guy's point. Nothing happens in tartarus, you just get a palette swap after some bazillion levels. At least some of the P4 dungeons had gimmicks, as boring as they were.
>People implying that P4 is better than P3 when the story was shit, the character were retarded high schoolers with mediocre identity issues, the atmosphere was of a Saturday morning cartoon show and the writting was fanfiction tier garbage where everyone sucks the MC dick for no reason.
I wish tumblr would just fuck off already.
>the story was shit
>the character were retarded high schoolers with mediocre identity issues
>the writting was fanfiction tier garbage
>everyone sucks the MC dick for no reason
Again, are we talking about P3? At least Yu was easygoing and tried to help his friends instead of just agreeing with everything. Everyone sucking MCs dick is a mystery because he's a skinny anti-social faggot who wears headphones all the time and his favourite phrase is "i don't care"
they suck MC dick so much that no girl can just befriend him. THERE ARE NO OTHER OUTCOMES SHE WILL LOVE YOU ALWAYS. even Mitsuru that had no fucking reason to fall all over him
So was the plot in 3, which if anything was structured even more poorly due to the massive-fake-out and angsty sitting around month they used to waste so much game time, so this is an irrelevant point.
Anyone else love the idea if having their waifu cuck them? I've had dreams where Chie fucks black and latino men, and I watch them breed her in my chastity belt. I've managed to cum a few times from these wet dreams. I hope to one day learn to control it so I can experience more dreams like this.
>Totally in line with the story month that is done in case you have missing social links if you have fucked something up/you're new to the game.
You probably used a walkthrough or you're bitching for the sake of it.
Uh, the game doesn't give you 'extra' time. All free time is equally valuable regardless of what the plot is doing. Your defense of inexcusably bad pacing is an embarrassment.
You're the one bitching for the sake of it, there's no excuse for those boring as fuck final months
You couldn't even finish some of the SL you missed anyway, because they were not avaliable all the time during. You couldn't even do anything else. And as >>283682947 said it's not "extra time", it's one month of nothing they took from you in the normal game.
DS4 works with the PSTV, but I'd recommend the PSTV bundle that comes with a Memory Card, DS3 Controller and some Lego game. It's like a 20-30 dorra difference but you need the Memeory card for PSN games and shit anyway right?
Honestly, I'd just recommend a second-hand Vita over the PSTV personally but that depends on your budget and taste in games since the PSTV doesn't play 100% of the Vita games.
Persona 4 Golden is better than Vanilla.
>It's the FFVII of Persona
Oh, the better one then? I'm glad you agree.
P3 can be the FFXIII of Persona. Shit that only contrarians and hipsters like saying it's cool because "muh dark and mysterious and supah cool protagonist"
P3 had a way better "you're the leader now" scene than P4. In P3, there's already a formal hierarchy in place before you arrive, and the current leader appoints you as his replacement while he recovers from his injury simply because you're the best at summoning personas. That makes sense. In P4 there's no organization in place or even need for such, and the fruit whose name I can't remember just goes "I THINK IT WOULD BE BEST IF YOU DECIDED FOR ME WHAT TO DO" out of nowhere.
Atleast best girls
Yukari and Risewere well written in PQ, especially the former.
I don't know if it's because I played as P3 MC, but it felt like Yosuke and Yukiko didn't get barely any dialogue at all. That goes for Ken too I guess but who gives a shit about Ken?
Yu is also the best at summoning personas. Hell he's the first, and he gets it way before everyone else, unlike P3. There's no "team" to speak of, it's just Yosuke and Yu, and Yosuke prefers to be second in command so he just tells Yu to lead. Everyone else joins and just go along with it.
Everyone appointing MC as the leader so quick and maintaining him is silly and just plays the whole "look at me i'm blue jesus a very special snowflake" theme P3 has going on. At least Junpei gets rightfully annoyed by it, but it's no surprise Junpei is P3 boy of the year every year.
There's no reason for them to even HAVE a leader in P4. They're just a bunch of random dorks, not a super sekrit underground task force with their own armbands and tech department.
The leader thing is just symbolic, to represent why you can tell everyone what to do in battle. The IT is different from SEES, everyone says their stupid thoughts equally and them go along with one conclusion they reach
Well, at least that means you never watched anime in your life, which is good.
I have played P1 and P4:G
P1 was alright I guess, but very goddamn boring, combat didn't make sense at times and fusing personas was a hassle.
P4:G is my personal GOTY of 2015, even though the game is a lot less deep than the original, it is enjoyable and rewarding yet I'd have liked if it was a bit more difficult, Yukiko is literally the best thing ever and fucking Reaper just won't show up even though I could find it 3 times before I was actually looking for it.
What do I do now?
Play IS and EP, P3:FES or get Platinum in P4:G?
Find me an anime when people shoot themselves in the head to summon their innerself, can only activate their powers for a short amount of time in a very expecific time-frame, they face the incarnation of death that is gonna destroy humanity and where lots of people die.
>FES is too archaic
Persona started at 4. You heard it here first.
If you're going to be so specific find me an anime where a teddie plush bear creates a blonde aryan body to help his friend from tokyo and his lesbian friends plus an idol and a detective to fight an evil gas attendant trying to turn mankind into shadows.
Nothing is generic if you're going to niptick details you moron
There are plenty of anime with teenager highschoolers fighting a greater evil trying to wipe out mankind though (starting with most famous of them all, Evangelion), sorry your perfect masterpiece is not as original as you want it to be
Kanji is god tier, best persona character over all
Yosuke is still a pretty good bro, albeit not better than Junpei
Teddy has a bunch of great set ups for jokes, and isn't as bad as people make him out to be
Chie is fine
Rise is a slut, but an exclusive slut that only want your dick
Naoto is cute as fuck, and is best girl
Yukiko a shit, but good party member to have
Akihiko is the fucking man, and cares where you've been
Junpei is best bro, but was kind of an asshole when he was jealous of you
Aegis is god tier, best character development
Mitsuru is bae, but kind of vapid.
Yukari is a cunt, she can die in a fire
Ken is a faggot, and 10
Koro is a dog
And worst of all
Fuuka: WATCH OUT FOR THE ENEMY!!!!!!!!!!!!
>Yosuke is still a pretty good bro

NOPE NOPE NOPE
>Aegis is god tier, best character development
JESUS CHRIST ALL OF MY NOPES
>Nothing is generic if you're going to niptick details you moron
Actually things that are genuinely generic are generic all the way down to the details. If you lump everything whose concept is "schoolkids fighting against big bad evil" together as one thing, it's just your fault for being unable to appreciate the differences in execution. Might as well whine that all stories are generic because they all involve a hero defeating a villain.
Think it like this for a second.
You go into a bar with a great atmosphere, diverse and mature people and are served an excellent meal with a really interesting design. That's P3.
Now years later you go into the same bar, but is full of sunshine and rainbows designs with a disgusting yellow color scheme, the bartender is a bear that cracks shitty jokes all the time and the inside is filled with retard high schoolers and a rapist that calls every single girl that enters the place a fucking whore. That's P4.
>You go into a bar with a great atmosphere, diverse and mature people and are served an excellent meal with a really interesting design.
>diverse and mature people and are served an excellent meal with a really interesting design. That's P3.
That just makes P3fags sound like fedoralords
>I'm just sooooo much more mature because it so much more deep story
I like both. why do you guys have to justify your choice?
You go into a bar with shitty cliched characters gathering around a blue haired faggot and an unbearable otaku atmosphere. Also there's a kid, a robot and a dog. That's P3. What's a kid doing a bar anyway?
You go into a bar with shitty cliched characters gathering around a silver haired faggot and an unbearable otaku atmosphere. There's a faggot inside a bear costume that jokes with the "unbearable" part. That's P4.
I beat the game so of course I used tactics alot but it's still a pain in the ass.
Really I don't understand why you guys defend the gameplay in p3fes. Wouldn't you rather just control your party? It makes the game alot more unfair even with tactics.
>i'm not a lonely otaku
>posting in a Persona thread
>on a video games board
>on a anime website
>that was made by a cuck
>You go into a coffee shop. You're welcomed by your delinquent friends and start planning heists in maximum comfort.
I found Persona 3 boring (could stick it out for a few more hours, but I'm not really hopeful), but I thought the concept was interesting (juggling dungeon crawling and school/social life).
Would it make more sense to try Persona 2 or Persona 4 next?
She's obviously talking about herself.
More like the bar is now filled with an edgy color scheme, the bartender is a cat fan of Sly Cooper, and is filled with Naruto clones, Junko Enoshima talking to himself in a mirror changing personalities left and right and a mix of Harry Potter and that guy from Corpse party that is fapping to photos of dead people on his phone, who somewhat believes he's Batman.
P3 has the better story.
P4 has the better gameplay.
Who the fuck cares about PQ.
They're character-driven RPGs so it's fair to put story on par with gameplay in terms of importance. Overall P3 is probably the better game, but by nowhere near as large a margin as FES niggers like to pretend.
That said, pic related and her entire shtick was jump the shark tier garbage. Fuck this character and fuck you for pretending P3 is a "mature game for mature gamers like yourself" with le funny socially stunted robot girl.
>mfw this song starts to play in my head whenever I'm in a social situation
You know very well that's going to be her verbal tic with every line in the JP version. Once again the dub mascot will be far preferable because stupid puns >>>>>> nyanyanya.
In my opinion. More content, better paced story, characters that don't stop mattering when they are saved, characters that have properly concluded arcs and aren't just one joke repeated over and over, it had twists that made sense and better music and better boss fights.
>characters that don't stop mattering when they are saved

This applies to P4 too though, not to mention P4 looks better
I can understand not liking Yukari. But to not like Rise, are you a peter puffer?
Rise has a lazy left eye
Fes is easily the best Persona game.
And how anyone think 4 was a better game is beyond me.
