Okay, while I am eager for a new Persona game, I am worried. All the things I didn’t like about P3 WERE improved upon with P4. And I could even deal with the considerably lighter tone and anime cliches. But the social links, which made up a huge portion of both games, were uninteresting as fuck. Persona 3’s main characters and story may have been underwhelming, but at least it had interesting social links. And I also didn’t like how Persona 4 pussy-footed around subjects like homosexual and transgender individuals without actually addressing them. I won’t know if Persona 5 is good until I play it, but I don’t think I’ll be forking over any cash for it until it’s been out a while. And I mean, P3/P4 were good games, but to be honest I AM FUCKING SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THEM. (Persona Q actually sounds good, though. Let’s Persona Dance! 4 does not. And I didn’t like the combat system of the fighting game, or the fact that there were no Persona 2 characters.)
Now go cry because I have opinions.
