I am suddenly breaking for something that is unique, visceral and totally unconventional for a conventional gamer.What is this hybrid-fusion of literature and gaming I speak of?Through it's cast of highschool characters dealing with modernized problems juxtaposed to the supernatural story of demon slaying and the intuitive persona-crafting system, it does not try to conform to the status quo set by titles like "Final Fantasy","Tales Of" and "Dragon Quest" franchises of the RPG lexicon. Dare I say that with each successive release, the Persona series has even begun to dethrone the "you-know-who" institution of the RPG genre, Final Fantasy.Even non-RPG gamers have reverence for the Persona series, with many of them acknowledging the only reason they bought a PS vita is for Persona 4 Golden. I now had an insatiable appetite for a type of game that I didn't even know existed.The implementation is so flawlessly executed that you never really notice you're playing a dating-Sim throughout large portions of P3.
These encounters are full of tenderness, happiness and simplicity. Anyway, thanks to Gleeden, I feel happier and I bite the apple wholeheartedly! First, I’ve lived a beautiful story with someone that ended up a few months later.
Now, I understand much more the masculine vision on relationships and couple crisis in general: they are inevitable and necessary." "I’ve been on Gleeden for quite a while now and I’ve never been disappointed. Okay, I’m a cheater, I’m kinda naughty, I cheat on my wife, but I’m having a blast and I’m happy!!
Every new encounter (more or less cheeky) makes me feel overwhelmed with joy. To me, it is now obvious that cheating is part of my life balance.
There had to be more games placing emphasis on social relationships like Persona, the protagonist in a deep story where the conflicting choices you make vary wildly from which girl you choose to pursue from time-traveling back to the past to prevent certain doom (bear with me here).
Where you had the choice of chasing after a dream girl, trying to balance your social life with your peers or save the world.
