The story and characters are also worse in P4

Agreed.  minus the social links which were an improvement over most of mc's.  I flat out refused to do moons in p3 and immediately reset.  I like that  pic of a joke ending for the mc doing nothing for all the social links.  Minus tower which I think he should have gotten but whatever.

 

 

Meanwhile facebook reminded me I beat star ocean 3 5 years ago today with a picture I posted of santa  :???:


Currently on the look out for a decent price on Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.

Really? P3 actually had my favorite social links, the top 2 being the Sick kid (Sun), and the Old couple (Hierophant). I couldn't remember any memorable ones from P4. Maybe I'd give a nod to the dog. And P5 had some pretty good ones, again it's probably since I played it most recently, but I loved the Doctor, Maid, and Gamer King. (Yeah I know... the Gamer King is a dweeb but he's got a really touching backstory, and one of his lines at the end of the game gave me chills.)

 

Here is a neat little chart I found to help you remember/compare the social links: (I didn't count any that were teammates/characters substantial to the main story)

I only liked Rise and the Nurse in Persona 4. And I guess Yukiko. And Margaret. The Fox Guardian was the homie.

I actually haven't played much P5 yet (I usually take forever to get to and then through games), so I'll just make judgements on P3 and P4 here, but:

0: P4 (Investigation team) > P3 (SEES) > P4 (Adachi)
1: P4 > P3 (Junpei) > P3 (Kenji)
2: P4 > P3
3: P3 > P4
4: P4 > P3
5: P3 = P4
6: P3 > P4
7: P4 > P3 (Rio) > P3 (Kazushi)
8: P3 (Ken) > P4 > P3 (Chihiro)
9: P3 (Toriumi) > P3 (Saori) > P4
10: P3 (Ryoji) > P4 > P3 (Keisuke)
11: P3 (Koromaru) > P4 (Daisuke) > P4 (Kou) > P3 (Yuko)
12: P3 > P4
13: P3 > P4
14: P3 > P4
15: P3 = P4
16: P3 > P4
17: P4 > P3 (Akihiko) > P3 (Mamoru)
18: P3 (Shinjiro) > P4 > P3 (Nozomi)
19: P3 = P4 (Yumi)*
20: P3 > P4
∞: Elizabeth's "link" > all actual social links

Looks like 5 clear wins for P4, 7 clear wins for P3, and the rest are pretty even or muddled up by having one of P3MCs or FemC's links better than the other. Or by Adachi, because Adachi just likes muddling things.

Some of these are pretty close, though—for instance, Ken and Nanako are nearly neck and neck, Ken just edges out Nanako for having more character development. And then, of course, some of them are ridiculously far: e.g. Yukiko beating Fuuka's low frequency waist slimmer pad off.

*I've never actually done Ayane's S.Link.

When I clicked the link, I didn't think it was a legit reveal of FFXV on PC because of the decent number of dislikes. Then as I was reading through the comments, it became obvious that the dislikes came from people who didn't like that FFXV wouldn't be a console exclusive anymore.

An excellent title, I highly recommend it, as it's far better than any current Mario Kart IMO.

Square should sell the nude mods as DLC.  It might be the only way they'll make their budget back for FFXV.

Didn't it achieve profits after a week of sales on release?

P5 plot: X: "help I am being repressed by a cartoonishly evil authority figure."

where X = every single character.

4 was better fight me.

Also the only reason 5 let you romance the old hags was because for the target persona audience, the older women are just women now.

I also liked P4 more than P5, but calling some characters old hags is going overboard....

 

I would like P6 to take place in a University setting. Yeah, still school I know but it would remove the limitations that High School always brought. Just something I think that would be interesting.

I'd prefer for it to not take place at school at all, but doubt that'll happen.
