started getting back into the first persona game (it’s been like a week since i last played it, maybe more), got about an hour into it, remembered why i was so disinclined to play it that i started a third playthrough of persona q instead
random combat is way too frequent, contacting demons is labyrinthine at best, the music ain’t that great, fast travel is nonexistent, and it’s just boring. maki’s sort of interesting and nanjo’s okay and i miss yukino but the story is just. blahhhh. combined with sub-par music and annoying, repetitive combat, this is one of the least entertaining video games i have ever played. maybe it gets better later? hopefully?
persona 2 seems much more interesting and honestly i would just skip to that one if it didn’t seem to be more of a direct sequel than 3 and 4 are. how did this game become popular enough to spawn sequels? was it someone’s pet project? does it get better later?
anyway i’m going back to q for now, which is fun and colorful and has a great soundtrack and basically is just better than its original predecessor in every way
no i’m not bitter about dying in the middle of a dungeon when i hadn’t saved for a while why do you ask
