Significant and it should.

It's about as close to flawless as JRPGs have ever gotten, in my opinion.
I think that's a bit overselling it. I love the game to death, but I could make a list of flaws a mile long for that game. (Some more notable than others.) It's a great game, but far from flawless.
Fine. Whatever. Let me edit my statement.
It's one of the only JRPGs that was fun enough, charming enough, and interesting enough that I was able to very easily look past it's flaws for the ~100 hours I played of it.
The original game had a lot of flaws that were fixed in P4G, I would actually say it's pretty close to a flawless jrpg.
No no no no no no. the whole idea behind Persona is that it's a role-playing game.
The occasional emote to make the player character seem like he has a personality in the world he exists in is one thing, giving him a voice is quite another.
When you give the character a voice you fundamentally separate him from the player himself, he just becomes another npc, one you control and steer in a certain direction or another. He ceases to be a functional avatar for the player.
This would literally ruin Persona.
It's not. Neither of the new consoles has a "system seller."
Don't get me wrong they both have great games, but let's be clear here: Halo is a system seller, Super Mario 64 is a system seller, GTA3 is a system seller.
DR3 is a fine game, it's not a system seller.
Yeah I dunno, personally I think the whole "Joel and Ellie aren't interesting characters without each other" thing is complete horseshit. Those characters are both incredible in their own right, and putting them together just enhances their complexity tremendously.
Just because they're more interesting taken as a pair doesn't mean that individually they were weak characters. Bleh.
I've played a good chunk and so far I like it. My main problem right now is that it just seems really inconsistent.
Half of the missions are really fun and can be even better than a lot of the stuff in the main game. But the other half are incredibly frustrating and poorly put together.
The slave emancipation aspect is pretty cool but I accidentally broke it within an hour or two and now every time I fast-travel it thinks I've liberated another slave ship and I get credit for 90 slave rescues I didn't do.
I would also say just navigating the city itself is a bit more interesting, because in Freedom Cry the "heavies" will mark you as a runaway slave if they see you, so it gives you a reason to actually keep an eye out for hiding spots and groups of people to blend in with.
interesting List especially since you put Tales of Xillia on there^^
But no list should ever be allowed to be posted without playing the Last of us XD
I make fart noises in the general direction of that game.
Scrolled down the list, didn't see The Last of Us.
Scrolled back up to your "games played" list and the world made sense again.
Scrolled back down and saw this post.
No more faith in humanity. :(
Seriously though, pretty good list aside from not having the GOTY on it ;)
@fattony12000: Congratulations on getting what I personally consider to be the best version of the best jrpg ever made, and for increasing the probability of Persona 5 getting localized by 0.0001%
Every bit counts!
