But if you only want to play it once. Links that take place at night, as in the original game you are supposed to spend most of your nights fighting. While what you say has merit, ultimately, all those Social Links which you purport to have meaning for you is what The Answer is the culmination of. Though seriously no real suggestion, but make sure you clear the floors and get to the barrier. If I was gonna give any tips, it'd be to learn how to use the tactics menu.
It's much more impactfull to actually tackle those bosses and events yourself and beat them yourself than simply go from cutscene to cutscene, skipping out on everything in the middle. Yeah, even in Persona 4, they're optional. P3P also has better fusion in addition to combat, fast travel, etc. I thought it was better to just look the story up on Youtube. Being able to control your party directly is a very big deal, which only P3P has. The of the female protagonist is a more feminine.
Big things going on next year with the system. . Plus the fact that P3P can be played on the Vita is a major selling point of it for me which makes it somewhat relevant to in my mind. Yosuke can't bro for crap. I find the Shin Megami Tensei series is much better in a portable setting, since you can play them at your leisure, instead of being tied to whenever you can set a few hours out to sit down and play them. The story is great either way, and I really didn't miss the animated cutscenes once.
Waiting with the console on will allow the game to eventually cycle through the problem. I must have been lucky, as she spent all her time using Mind Charged Bufudynes. P3P is great too and has a much better main game but it's more of something for established fans of the game than for newcomers. Instead, it offers to duplicate Skill Cards, which will take 5 days to complete. It's just painful watching the characters rehash what they know over and over and over again. You also get other gameplay elements, like saving S.
The endless 200+ level dungeon was discouraging the whole game. Link properly, and that's stupid. Also, I don't see who would start such a silly 'rumor' saying the P4G versions are nothign special. At least the Journey, never got around to the Answer, whenever I try I realize I don't care to see anything else involving the story. Journey is the original main campaign.
It's a bit of a drudge, and character logic is hit-and-miss. P3P is great too and has a much better main game but it's more of something for established fans of the game than for newcomers. P3P was one of those games that did a lot to improve over the original game, but was also a step down in quality in a lot of ways. My two cents which I'm sure many have informed you on is the portable version of persona 3 will be a give take, depending on what is important to you will be a big factor. I don't see been able to control only your character and how you change equipment as themes of the game; they are mechanics yes, I know mechanics can be used to portray a game's theme, but I don't think that's the case here. I don't know how to put this into word without having it be spoilers. It didn't really work, not for me at least, because I thought it was incredibly shallow and contrived.
Again, while this is frustrating for gameplay and probably why it was removed in Persona 4 and in Persona 3 Portable, it drove home the theme that you are only playing as your character. The Inari Sushi in no longer grants random bonuses for item gaining and Tartarus explorations. You still walk around in the dungeon in P3P, so all that really changes in that department is instead of walking to the shop, you click on the shop on a screen. This way you get the best of both worlds. Links, I think P3P did it best because it tried to mix and match have the characters evolve throughout the story while still letting you explore other aspects of their personality that you wouldn't know otherwise.
FlarePhoenix said: I still disagree. As for my own answer, Persona 4 is a better game, but I've only played Persona 3. Persona 3 was more of harry-potter-ish secret society where they had secret powers to save the world from shadows. In any case, Persona 3 is an awesome game, go for it! Atlus did this in P4 by adding way more school events and longer Social Links so you could see more of each character and their personality. The female route provided a fresh perspective to the game, despite being practically the same as the regular route.
