Review: Persona 4 Golden (This is My Joystick)

Persona 4 takes a vastly different approach to the types of JRPGs that you’re probably used to, and that’s evident as soon as the story begins. Rather than placing you in the typical fantasy setting, you play a young city boy transferred to the rural town of Inaba to stay with his uncle while his parents are away for a year.

What starts as a peaceful school life in a small town is swiftly interrupted as Inaba is rocked by a succession of murders, and it becomes apparent that the victims are inexplicably appearing on TV around the same time as their disappearance and eventual murders. (Persona 4 Golden, PS Vita) -

Good read and glad you "discovered" P4G but the the game is not a direct port, it got lots of gameplay changes.

U need to get Persona 3 Portable too, the storyline is equally amazing and it got the same mechanics as P4G.

Hey, huge thanks for the comment. Yeah, I appreciate that the game has some changes, but without prior reference, I'm unable to say or know what they are. When I used the term 'direct port', it was more in reference to the graphics and assets. I'd rather admit I don't know than lie, so I'm happy with my wording.

I will check out P3. I feel like I've been missing out on the most important JRPG series in the genre.

Ahh you been on N4G for awhile, cool ;o)...

Yeah and honestly no games whether it is JRPG or not equals to the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series...

Persona 3 Portable on the PS Vita
