"I’ve played my handful of puzzle games with Portal being the main one to grab my full undivided attention in the past year. Yet when the game Catherine was announced, I wasn’t sure what to think. At first glance I thought this was going to be a pretty “naughty” game if you know what I mean, but once I saw the gameplay and a glance at the story, I grew very curious about Catherine. Atlus, the creators of the game, already have a good history at messing with people’s minds thanks to the Persona series and I only know that from word of mouth. I have not personally played the Persona series and I can’t really say how those games make some sort of tie-in to Catherine but all I know is that I was already convinced and ready to play it (however with info I gathered from a certain someone there seems to be). I love puzzles and I love a good story but did I love Catherine? While it does depend on which Catherine we’re talking about and regardless of my outcome, the answer is a 100% yes."
