Persona 4 Golden has long held my interest from afar. While I was but a slip of a lad, I focussed squarely (boom-boom) on the Final Fantasy series for my JRPG fix, and man, did I have a heavy addiction. As that series dwindled to the mess it is now, my interest in the genre waned as well. Partially due to the stagnation of itself, and partially due to my becoming a parent, the time for JRPGs had passed in my life.
And yet, I wondered if there would ever be a time where that all-consuming, no-other-game-exists, 30+ hour behemoth would ever take over again. I thought that game would be Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, but after 12 hours, I realised that what I really wanted from that game was to play as the impeccably-voiced Drippy, not the whiny kid.
With the recent sale, I took the plunge on Persona 4 Golden. This blog will detail my experiences and reactions to the game, and is nothing more than an experiment for me to see how dedicated to blogging about one thing I can become.
