I think that 3 does do certain things better, but over all 4 is better written and better designed. 3 is a bit too JRPG for me what with battle robots that look like teenage girls, a Persona using dog and a focus on an end of the world plot. I prefer 4's more relatable grounded story telling, the only problem I have with Persona 4's writing is Naoto.
>>
>I prefer 4's more relatable grounded story telling

Come the fuck on anon. I loved P4 but it really is just Scooby Doo with everyone riding protag's dick non-stop. There's nothing 'grounded' about it.

I liked 3 better too.

>>277559503
This, I hate persona 3's system. It's completely janked. The AI is really inconsistent, I can't trust them to do anything. Press turns don't always happen for you, and the enemy , too many status conditions, and 3 types of physical hits is unnecessary. Persona 4's system is perfect. I never lost a battle because of some dumbass RNG.

A zany bunch of teenagers teaming up to solve a mystery. I'm not even levelling it as a criticism either retard. but to say P4 sheds all of the typical JRPG tropes found earlier in the series like in 3 and that it's more relatable and 'grounded' is laughable. It's full of them.

It really is. Watch Scooby Doo. Play Persona 4. If you can't see the comparison then... 39;aw?
And I don't think "grounded" is a term that can be applied when every relationship you take part in is so instantanious and ridiculous.

It's still a better game than P1 though, and I like that

There's nothing particularly zany about them unless you count the terrible Golden version. It's a group of believable normal teenagers living in a believable rural town dealing with relatable problems such as bullying, sexuality, parental burden, personal identity etc. My only problem with the real world elements of Persona 4 is Naoto who is teenaged detective from a rich background who apparently carries a gun, that shit is pretty retarded. But other than Naoto the real world elements of Persona 4 are all pretty grounded and relatable. The supernatural element of the story is obviously not grounded by it's very nature but its a reality meets fantasy story which is kinda the point.

In Persona 3 you've got battle robots that look like teenaged girls build by humans, Persona suppressant pills, Persona using dogs, piles of orphans, a school club authorised by an adult whole aim is to kill monsters, complete with super sci-fi command centre equipped with giant displays, teched out motorbikes for hunting monsters. Persona 4's real world is grounded, Persona 3's real world is a bunch of silly ass anime shit. It's less interesting because it's not reality meets fantasy, it's just fantasy meets fantasy. Plus a simple murder mystery is more unique and compelling as a JRPG story than yet another fucking potential end of the world plot even if Persona 4 does itself go down that route right at the last minute.

>believable normal teenagers

My sides. By your logic, the P3 cast are all just as 'grounded' as the P4 cast because at the end of the day they're all just teenagers with hidden potential and human struggles going to some kind of alternate dimension to battle shadows and save the day. P4 just tackled it in with a more upbeat tone but the results are the same, you even say as much with

>Plus a simple murder mystery is more unique and compelling as a JRPG story than yet another fucking potential end of the world plot even if Persona 4 does itself go down that route right at the last minute.

There wasn't a single fucking thing wrong with any of that. Playing a JRPG and criticising it because it's not something relatable is retarded.

>>
>>277563717
agreed
>>
>>277564161
If you've already played the game once before It's a decent way to replay it and get something different. But I would always recommend people play vanilla first before playing Golden since much of what it adds detracts from the base game.
>>
>>277564161
The only thing I can think of that makes vanilla P4 worse than Golden is less events and lack of skill cards. Marie is fucking terrible, even winter trip doesn't make up for her shitty design and pointless role in the story.
>>
>>277564492
Also being able to choose the skills you pass down. And, well, more purse owners and arcanas is pretty good, too.

>>
>>277564932
because then it wouldn't be /v/
>>
>>277565220
P3P removes all of the 3D graphics outside of Tartarus, it makes the game into a menu driven visual novel instead of having in engine cutscenes and the ability to run around town and such. If you don't mind the visual novel style it's just better.
>>
>>277564419
>They subtracted
In Persona 4, which made the game x100 times better.
>>
>>277565220
I suggest it

I mean if you like playing portable and on the bus or whatever, P3P is still quite good. You miss out on character models for immersion, but that's really it.

I'd try out FES and see how you like the AI battling system, and if it's too hard switch to P3P for direct commands
>>
>>277565220
>tfw I did the same thing
I really wish my PS2 wasn't busted.
People say that the lack of a 3D overworld kills immersion for them, but it doesn't matter much if you don't care about graphics

3 wasn't balanced around being able to control your useless teammates and you lose out on a lot of little touches with the vn format.
Instead of the gif you get a still portrait and the audio guy clopping some coconut shells together to imply that someones running.
I'm definitely not forcing you or anything but I think p3p works better for a second playthrough / playing through the femc route after you've already played FES.

I would highly reccomend FES over P3P for a first playthrough. You can always just emulate FES on a PS2 emulator if your computer isn't trash. It ran fine for me.

P4 has the better gameplay.
P3 has the better everything else

So I guess I consider them equals. It depends on if I'm in the mood for decent combat/dungeon crawling and better everything else or vice versa.

P3P is the biggest piece of shit and is the worst Persona game. It takes everything that made P3 great and throws it out the window. All charm and atmosphere is gone. It's all replaced by still images and half ass writing. I completely regret playing it first before FES. I actually thought P3 was bad because I played this version. Playing FES is such a better experience. People underestimate how much the cutscenes and shit like this gif affect the game. Don't let anyone ever tell you to play P3P first. Play it after if you want to be a girl and be fucked by your husbandos. That game was pretty much made for being the girl. I will always regret this decision. The writing was actually so bad that I didn't even know the MC died at the end until I read it on /v/

It's not bad at all. I've been playing P3P for my first run because I couldn't run FES either. It's really not bad, but you do have to get used to the Visual Novel style.

How shit is your laptop? If my phone can run it your REAL computer should, maybe your emulator is trying to x8 AA it or something.

Alright, now I'm intrigued.

Are the majority of persona fans in /v/ play the game for the waifus/social life sim?

I bet it's a mix of both.
>>
>>277576037
I play it for the dungeons
social links are a bonus
>>
I tried to play Persona 3 but couldn't bother with the school and Tartarus. I just wanted some waifus man. Any games that just let you have fun with waifus?
>>
>>277576037
They are nice but if they were removed from Persona 5 I wouldn't complain at all.
They won't though
>>
>>277575769
The fanbases are different and have a constant clash
People who like the dark themes of P3 and people who like the Happy themes of P4
MT is notorious for it's dark and grim themes, P4 broke that streak and it sticks out like a sore thumb
And the fact that it was the easiest game in all of MT/persona and how it brought in so much casuals is another of the things that make people dislike P4

>>277576037
I like the gameplay, the Social aspect is a nice little bonus and serves as a feature that separates and makes it stand out it from the rest of the SMT
>>
>>277576037
>implying I don't play for both the social and the rpg
By day I shamelessly flirt with my female colleagues, by night I fight evil. I'm batman with a posse.

>>277576037
I don't give a fuck about waifus, I play it for the overall experience. It's a cool game, basically jumping into the life of an alpha emo kid who's a superhero at night. I really love the music and overall aesthetic of tartarus too.
>>
>>277576317

Yes, VNs

The waifus or the social links?

I don't play Persona for neither of those.
I like the atmosphere.
I like the dungeons in all of the games.
I love the soundtrack.
I love collecting personae and fusing tons of them.
I like the overall "experience" I guess.

The only thing I wish is that they gave more importance to the anthology plot,but welp.

I dislike how they make less attack options with every installment (rip guns, pierce and smash meele, gravity magic and much much more).
I never liked Junpei and he was killing P3 for me. Then characters in 4 had too big boner for McSwag all time.
Enjoyed both of them. For replaying value I'd pick P3:Portable every time.

P3P = Q = IS > EP = FES = 4 > Golden = 1

I really like all the games though,none of them are bad.
>>
>>277577826
Well I expected PQ to feel like a EO game but it's feeling more like a new Persona game to me. Fusing personaes, funky music, going all out in combat, tons of "social" events.
>>
>>277577826
it also plays completely different than any other Persona game

>>277577976
>completely

>>277578081
The onyl "content" added was more Anime elements and events
It gave Adachi and S.Link
But in regards to combat, it's fucking easy as hell
The bosses are easier, Naoto got re-worked, which made the game even easier
It was made to lure in casuals and get more sales

>>277578417
It's not nice to lie, anon

Oh alright. Yeah P3P was alright but direct control made that game easy as fuck. It didn't rebalance the game when it should have.

How does the Adachi social link work with him being the villain?

You get an extra ending if you did adachi's S.Link

I'm assuming PQ is using her Golden VA and yeah it's pretty bad. I thought her original VA in P4 was perfect. I hate it when people say her new VA is improved and her old is bad, most of the time they never even played the original and just heard a short clip on youtube.

This. They just took some bad line reading out of proportion. The old VA was pretty good.

No, I think it's usually because they removed 3D world exploration and made it feel even more like a visual novel. Personally I enjoyed P3P aside from it being easier but I think FES is the best experience by far.
