Persona 4 is the JRPG I’ve Always Wanted, But Never Knew Existed

IGN: "A game that throws away the rulebook in an all-too stale genre. Better discovered late than never."

Keep the VITA hits coming, ATLUS!

Yeah, the Vita version has to be one of the highest rated games in a LONG time. It certainly deserves it too. Such a memorable game... I remember getting it on a whim back in the day on PS2. Never looked back, and it instantly solidified the Persona series as one of my favorites.

What other types of JRPG's do you like?

ApolloTheBoss1201d ago

This was my second JRPG. I have to say that I made some good calls when it comes to buying incredible games I know absolutely nothing about. I bought it on sheer impulse and it's easily among my top 3 best games I've ever played. (Oblivion, P4G, and Ni no Kuni). And may I say that ALL of these games were bought on impulse and nothing more.

@jujubee88 - Final Fantasy used to be my all time favorite, though they've slipped since the Enix merger. Not saying they make "bad" games now, but not nearly what they used to be.

I love the Disgaea series, Tales of series, Ys series, Xenoblade was fantastic, Last Story was great, still love Kingdom Hearts despite it not having a console entry in ages (excluding 1.5 HD lol). I know there are some I'm forgetting, but I'm pretty dang tired. XD

Persona 4, finally getting the respect it deserves, 5 years later.

Baka-akaB1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

mm ? it always had respect and success on ps2 too . Now of course it uses some added popularity via the anime too

knifefight1201d ago

Review scores and the like are one thing, but I never heard this many people talking about Persona 4 back in 2008. It's on another level.

Baka-akaB1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

like i said it had more exposure via the anime . But the game had lots of popularity , just like persona3 .

The ps2 pretty much sold close to million , if not more by now , and easily half of that was from the west .

Protagonist1200d ago

I believe the persona games especially Persona 3 Portable being released for the PSP has much to do with succes too.

Kratoscar20081201d ago

Nah the Mainline SMT series is better, Persona is good too butnot as the mainline series.

Kratoscar20081201d ago

space bar problems i guess.

I can't say this enough, and I'm sure I've said it more than a handful of times just on N4G comment sections...but as a 27 year old gamer that has played games since I can remember, after playing Persona 4 on the PS2 is became my favorite game of all time overtaking Final Fantasy VII (cliche I know). But the characters are some of the best in the business and the story always kept you wanting to know just what exactly was going to happen next. I should probably go start this game again, it's SO good.

It's the JRPG we deserve, but not the one we need right now.

Wrong comment persona always kept their identity considering the times but hey feel free to express your opinion all I know is that the persona series keeps evolving in a proper way look from the the ps1 days to the modern times the story isnt bound by time you can learn alot from persona but as for FF yeah great series but is a fantasy a good one except for now depending when you started but persona is in a way realistic idk but im a persona fanboy and thats my perception on the series

MelonSaurus1200d ago

MFW Nobody got the reference... :/

Whatever, I'll just go back to playing Persona.
