Persona 3 better than 4? What? Blasphemy.

I started with Persona 3 and I have had it for a little over a year now and I still have not been able to finish it. The pacing is atrocious, the characters are flat, and Tartarus is too grindy. The game is fun enough on full moons and s-links (sometimes,) but overall it just lacks the polish and flow that would make it truly epic.

Persona 4 fixed all of these problems. Very rarely are you not doing something. The story flows along quickly enough not to bore you but slowly enough to give you time to plan. The characters are still somewhat flat, but at least they are humorous and the grindfest is toned down considerably. The story is a little more mellow, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. I find it very hard to think of a way in which Persona 3 is better than 4.
