That would be entirely too familiar and thus depressing.

But if they went with the average Japanese person's idea of life in the US, ie nonstop drive-by shootings, that could be rather entertaining.

I rather Japanese-America be more Earthbound than Dead Rising.

Also the Soundtrack would be full of bullshit western music. Part of the reason i love these games is the score.

bullshit western music?

What does that even mean?

Persona in america would be a western.

...

like how would it be bullshit? Why would Meguro change his style so drastically that it would be worse? It's not like they've never used american styles of music before (the ending theme of persona 2: innocent sin was an american singer).

Persona 3's sound track was prominently that weird but really cool Jazz rap. Neither genre I would consider japanese, and both i would consider very western. The lyrics and singing though were pretty japanese and tied it all together.

oh god lotus juice is the worst.

"Gotta prove my skillz so get down

My lyrical dempsey roll about to smack down now

Gotta shoot to kill and shoot the skill

Don't you be afraid mans gotta go how it feels "

You mean the "best."

I think we can probably agree, the lyrics in EVERY Persona song suffers from Japanese people liking to speak english but not knowing how words or sentences flow making things pretty corny at times. I really like that though.

I think it would be neat to have some exchanged student in the next game. Wasn't Lisa Silverman that? Never played Persona 2.

I like the japanese setting though. I've always liked the idea of maybe having people older than teenagers in the party. Why not?

It depends. Do the presonas have american names? If so then that game would be pretty awful.

What do you mean American names? Do you mean the personas would all be big foot, jersey devil, chupacabra, instead of the Greek, Roman, Japanese, and Christian religious figures?

Isn't Pizza Bat at the end of No More Heroes 2 so dumb that Henry even comments on how dumb it is?

Also Metal Gear Rising seems to have a pretty dumb boss, which kind of makes it great.

Waluigi could probably count. He's pretty dumb.

Also Super Joe at the end of the Bionic Comando Reboot.

At the end of Bayonetta you fight hair goddess and then knock her across the galaxy into the sun.

In Star Fox 64 one of the ending you just fight Androsses Brain, and normally he is just a head.

You fought a terminator at the end of Mass Effect 2.

I have tough time remembering names a lot of the time. Though I think its much easier when characters have shorter nick names or names that let them stand out. I could probably name anyone from the Metal Gear Solid series and I find it easy to remember Game of Thrones characters because they usually have a unique look as well as nick names like "Hound" Mountain, Ned, Bran, Snow, or Kingslayer.

I have watched FLCL several times and I still don't know everyone's name. I can name the episode names, but not many characters outside of Naoto, Mamimi, and Haruka. I think the very Japanese names throw me off.

I prefer stylized graphics. They have been proven to stand the test of time more than realistic graphics.

Wind Waker and Okami will probably end up looking better than most games today because of that. We will look back and see how crappy these realistic unreal engine characters look when they are loading in all their face textures.

I think SNES games are more visually pleasing than most N64 and Ps1 games because pixel art is stylized. It's the reason A Link to the Past won't need a remake but something like Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask does.

Even though it has realistic character models, MGS1 still has something interesting about it visually that I'd consider stylized, I played it for the first time recently and it's age didn't bother me.

If in HD many of the best Gamecube/ Wii games would have timeless visuals.
