View topic - Anyone playing Persona 4?
The game itself is really great. There is actually an in-game calandar in which the game follows. You have class Monday-Saturday (it is a Japanese school), you have a homeroom in which the teachers rotate around, and you get Japanese holidays off from school. There's plenty of different Japanese cultural aspects you can experience from the game. Heck, I remember one of the teachers asking me what time a burglar is likely to break into your home (I think the answer was 8AM).
After class you can improve multiple stats by either reading, eating out, and studying, or you can spend time with your friends (social links). By improving these you can create more powerful persona with bonus experience. The personas themselves are summoned in battle to defeat your enemies. When you aren't working on social links you are usually in the newest dungeon solving the next case and slaying demons in turn-based combat. There's plenty to do in this game and it will certainly keep you occupied for many hours.
One thing that some of you might find interesting is how they carry over the honorifics in the translation. Like 3rd year students call you "name-kun" while 1st year call you "senpai". And as you get closer to your friends they omit "san" and just call you (or eachother) by your\their first name.
I'm about 24 hours in and in the month of June and enjoying every minute of this game. So many hilarious parts in May's dungeon.
