Why Can’t My Friends Be As Cool As Those Characters In Persona 4?

"I very rarely feel connected to characters in video games, or if I am, generally it’s only at the surface level. I can count on my hand the number of times a game’s narrative has drawn me in – specifically to its characters – and made me experience genuine emotions for them. Persona 4 is probably the title to best describe a game like this. It pulls me into a world not so different from my own. It gives me characters I can relate to, laugh at, protect, and even love." (Persona 4, Persona 4 Golden, PS Vita, PS2)

I felt the same thing playing through the PS2 game. I can't wait to play through Golden when I get a Vita

I. KNOW. RIGHT?!?! When I compare my life to Yu's life, I actually get depressed sometimes. He has everything. Good friends, is extremely good at studies, can choose between YUKIKO, CHIE, NAOTO and RISE who all happen to be really pretty.
AH,I AM SO JEALOUS. xD
I totally agree with this, good read. Persona games have the most memorable casts ever.

Go out and meet some people, study hard, work out at the gym, problem solved.

But studying hard and working out aren't fun. Yu has fun slaying Jungian archetypes with hot school girls.

They're fictional, that's why.

I wish I could read the article, but I don't want to spoil anything. Regarding the title, I feel the same way about the characters in Persona 3. I wish they could be my friends irl. I felt so attached to those characters, I was so sad when the game ended.

I always thought myself about this as to why I cant be more like yu narukami and the conclusion I came to is that I shouldnt dismiss my own awesome friends the relation between my friends and his is that we r all close and we always go through problems and learn more abou ourselves and bonds where the relation ends is that we dont have a mystery, most graduated school or attend other colleges, and lastly we dont go inside tvs or a tartarus fighting shadows while screaming PERSONA!
