I was playing Persona 4 with my girlfriend--an endurance run of our own, but she likes how stupid and crazy the game is--and last night, we finally made it to Adachi's reveal. I didn't question this much while watching Jeff and Vinny mainly because of how funny it was, but now that we've talked about it, Adachi being the culprit's a pretty big copout, isn't it?
His character doesn't have much depth... Even Namatame is more complex than he. Unless I'm forgetting something, since we just entered the dungeon, Adachi's motive is "bitches and whores" and "baw I can't get laid." That's it. After like 65 hours, it feels like whoever wrote this game had another character written but ended up having to cut that idea. So Adachi is left as a possible culprit, but he's comic relief and that feels so wrong.
I don't know. Maybe I'm missing something?
Also it's the first day of the dungeon and I still have Hisano (rank 9) Kanji and Rise (around rank 6 or 7... Kanji might be 8), Naoto (rank 2), Naoki (rank... 7? 6?), the whiny kid's stepmother (rank 1), and the whiny kid who needs tutoring (yet to have the Understanding). I might be screwed. But out of that list, we really only care about Hisano's and Kanji's social links... especially Hisano. Goddamn that was some sad, but really good shit.
