How would your opinion of Persona 4 differ if he was the real killer?
It would have ended faster and would have had 20 hours less of reading, would probably be all around better
No, but I would actually like the game if he was the protag.
Playing as an awkward weirdo no one likes and having S Links be extremely difficult to build would make it so having ridiculously overpowered Personas was harder and more rewarding while actually taking the story in an interesting route too.
Adachi's whole speech at the end would be a lot better if the protagonist directly contradicted it by being a huge weirdo no one liked that build himself up by putting in the effort.
Plus if his dungeon was just some kind of weird vidya parody dungeon that ended with a doppelganger shadow battle, so it's very possible to believe some nerd who probably played Zelda II and has some self-loathing would be able to get through it and get a Persona at the end of it on his own, so the whole stupid "lmao a God just gave it to you out of sheer coincidence" thing could be dropped too.
It would make the protag feel less like a contrived chosen one who just gets super lucky because fate demands he be some bad ass while also making the whole dating aspect more appealing for waifufags since all the girls would have to be written to say things like "I thought you were a gross loser but you're actually super cool" so they can self insert better.
Prove me wrong.
I don't think he should have been the hero, but I do think a game that's about facing the darkness in yourself and coming to terms with your flaws was really unforgiving to the one person who simply failed. The game just gave up on the dude who was in such a pit of despair that he would rather kill someone and take the fall for two other deaths than continue to exist with nothing. And the game just kind of gives up on him and says "Yeah, you're pretty worthless alright." There's not a lot of reflection on the topic. Even Adachi gets his chance to redeem himself, and his actions damn near killed a child.
So much for accepting yourself.
Nah, Yosuke even says "that's it?" after you beat his dungeon
Also best girl would not have been an option.
I think it could've been kinda cool if he became a party member though, just to fuck with the player
Anon, if reading is such a challenge to you, perhaps you should stick with the dub. After all, it's made primarily to cater to people like you.
That was really well thought out and creative. Not to mention a self insert mc with substantial character development. You get all the gold stars.
I prefer to play my games, reading is for nerds
Good boys hold X through dialogue so they don't have to see words
I'm playing Golden right now, and it's during summer vacation. I already beat the Void Quest dungeon, but does everyone actually go to the beach during vacation like everyone discussed at school in an earlier scene?
Shit niggas are we hoyposting?
IN A PERSONA THREAD?!
That's your own personal taste. the only reason i remember even advancing Rise's S.link was for the sweet abilities she gave the group
