I hope this isn't too much of a necro-post. I couldn't find any rules on necro-posting.
Persona 4 Golden was my first game in the franchise, and after I learned about everything that Persona 4 PS2 didn't have, I was upset at the existence of the original. I know that sounds dumb, and it is, but the thought of someone out there experiencing significantly less of a large, engaging, captivating game for the first time just gets under my skin.
It's not just because it was extra content. All that stuff felt natural, like it belonged. Maybe my perspective is skewed by the fact that P4G was my first, but everything in that game flowed naturally. Nothing felt out of place. The music, the events, the extra scenes, it was all Persona 4 to me. Everything fits so perfectly that I cannot imagine the game without it. I don't know the facts, but Golden is probably the developer's true vision for Persona 4 that they were incapable of creating for the Playstation 2, and it shows.
If anyone hasn't played Persona 4 Golden and wants to, the Playstation TV + a physical copy of P4G is worth $60 total on Amazon. If you have a PS3/PS4 controller already, you're all set. No Vita memory stick required since the PSTV has plenty of internal storage for save data.
By the way, Chie is the best! :smile:
