I’ve been thinking of getting P4G because it looks like the kind of game I’d like (turn-based RPG, colourful visuals, weird as hell), but i fear it might be too dense for me since I’m not much of a gamer.. should I just say fuck it and go for it anyways?

yeah, it's very user friendly and the learning curve is gentle

P5R is on sale and I'm trying to be smart and resist buying it as I played the base game already. Maybe if it ever goes under $20, I'll give it a try.

Lol that didn't last long! Bought it just now anyway.

i'm tempted to give it another try, i own the base game but fell off it 25-30 hours in and there being a Better version makes me less inclined to resume

Apparently Royal has quality of life improvements too.

i've put 400+ hours into P5 and i'm getting Royal as soon as i've got a machine to play it on, worth every penny

actually P5R is half price on the PS Store over here, very tempted to buy it now so it's ready for when PS5's are available next summer

been playing a lot of persona 3 lately. I haven't played any other games in the series yet so I don't know how it stands up against the others, but the world it creates is just so perfect. and the characters! and dialogue! I'm far from even being halfway through the game, but I already feel so attached to the characters and story

the summer vacation beach scene -- where junpei drags akihiko and the protagonist into trying to pick up girls at the beach before they meet aigis -- is such a good portrayal of adolescent male awkwardness and arrogance (except for that one part where it gets weirdly transphobic. that part has not aged well!)

sadly you get those little moments of stupid unpleasantness in the series but yeah otm, the Persona games have become the most emotionally affecting games I've ever played and I'm fairly obsessed.

(not obsessed enough to take a chance on Strikers yet tho. has anybody played that?)

those atlus writers are really queer-phobic. look up the scenes they added in catherine full body if you want to be disgusted.
