The Girlfriend Review

  • Mar 27, 2009
Rating:
+5
Sometimes, being a good girlfriend means sitting on the couch and watching him play a game or playing a game together. I'm a moderate gamer, the new controls are generally more complicated than I'm willing to commit to. He is a hard core gamer. Some games are easier to watch than others, and some are easier to play. This review is not for the hard core gamer. This review if for the girlfriend (or boyfriend, who am I to judge?) that sits on the couch and watches.

Persona 4 is a great girlfriend game. We jokingly refer to it as "time to watch the anime". It's a single player game, so my involvement is limited to "don't say that...say this" or "I don't think that's the right answer...." The characters are interesting and the game is very story driven. With the exception of battle days, which don't happen all that often, the game is actually almost entirely story. I won't get into the plot, but if you're a fan of anime, you will enjoy this game. The game play is intuitive and you will rarely find yourself at a loss wondering what you should do next. The Persona fusing is the most complicated thing about the game, and I usually check the laundry or load the dishwasher when it comes to that point in the game. There are many games that I have sat through in defeated resignation, this is not the case with Persona 4. I'd find myself telling him that it's been 3 days, when are "we" going to play the game again! I hate to admit it, but I think I had a little crush on Rise! Great characters, great story, a great time overall.

What happened in the three hours of the game?   You begin by arriving at your uncles home Nd you adjust to your new life. You begin going to school and virtually get to know the main character and the people your going to be going through the game with. The actions picks up pretty quickly though.     What was the most challenging part you completed?   Definitely working my way through the ever changing dungeons. The dungeons in this game are random every time …

What happened in the three hours of the game?   Those first few hours were retaining the relationship system that I got used to in Persona 3. I got used to the intriguing characters as well, personal favorite being Chie. The premise of the story is as bizarre, dark, and interesting as most SMT titles.      What was the most challenging part you completed?   Beating the "climax" boss. Goddamn him.     What was the best part of the …

A Unique Dungeon-Crawling RPG
I am a gamer by heart (amongst other things, I am also a dvdholic, I like Attack of the Show, spiders, blogging, dark graphic novels, etc.)  What's hot on my PS2 console?  (Yes, I own a PS3 but nothing can replace my ps2.)   Well, after almost 2 monthsof playing, I just finished Shin Megami Tensei Persona 4).  This game came out in 2008 but for some reason I just got my hands on it recently.   I also played Persona 3 prior to this and I can't help but compare that …

I say a lot of things about a lot of games, and I use a lot of superlatives, but when I say that Persona 4 is the best of the best, easily one of (if not the) greatest RPG experiences of all time, I mean it. With a thematically-relevant, gripping, pulse-pounding soundtrack that's combined with stylised, beautiful Soejima visuals, the most believable, human cast of characters in any contemporary or classical video game, and a plot that, while occasionally predictable, throws curveballs to the …

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is the latest RPG to released for the PS2...and though the system may be old...this might be the best RPG in 2008. Much like the earlier games in the series...you control a group of teens...and the social responsibilities that come with it: school, social life, and battling monsters in a strange world inside their TVs that involve some gruesome murders...you know, all the typical aspects of an ordinary teenager. The battle system is the typical turn-based RPG system, …
