Unfortunately this isn’t all that an informative post as of yet since I’m trying to catch up on work, but just wanted to post and say that anyone with a ps2 (or access to one) must buy Persona 3
Few ps2 rpgs have made me grin like a madman while playing like Persona 3 has. While it doesn’t have the eye candy of Final Fantasy 12, I still feel that Persona 3 wins out by virtue of character development. For those curious about the history of the Persona games, as well as it’s parent Shin Megami Tensei series check out this link to Hardcore Gaming 101′s article.
For those who play HERO, take the time to check out my Persona conversion in the HERO discussion boards too.
