One Hit Pixel: "JRPGs have been stuck in a bit of a rut in the current console generation. While their Western RPG cousins have gone from strength to strength, there haven’t been many JRPGs that can be truly classified as generation defining. Some might say that Persona 4 is the product of a previous generation due to being released on last-gen hardware, but it was also released at a time when the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 were in full swing. In an effort to bring it forward in time, Persona 4: Golden attempts to do for the PlayStation Vita what Persona 3: Portable did for the PlayStation Portable. In many ways, it excels and exceeds all expectations."
