Default Prime guest writer Peter Tieryas gets into the final part of his Persona 3 retrospective where he discusses social links, music, and "Operation Babe Hunt."
Persona 3 takes place over a year and every day is split out into different time periods. As the characters age, get closer, or feud, you feel like you’re there at school with them, undergoing the journey they are, watching the seasons change. Very few games can immerse you at that level. Persona 3 succeeded and reminded me of what I loved about JRPG’s and games in general. Some have suggested JRPG’s are a dying breed. I beg to differ. I know Persona 3 is a few years old, but that same team is out there and when Persona 5 comes out, I will be one of the first waiting in line. I give big props to the development team at Atlus for bringing this work of genius to fruition.
