    Persona 4 Golden is a genuine, bona fide work of art, and one of those games that show the potential for the video game format to offer more than cheap thrills. It's one of those games that you get the feeling will be remembered as a masterpiece well into the future too. With most AAA blockbusters falling out of the public discourse just a few months after release because they offer nothing but passive entertainment, it's games like Persona 4 that we continue to discuss. Even in comparison to its own sequel, it seems to have the combination of characters, narrative, and ideas that help it to continue to be worthy of thought. We'll still be talking about Persona 4 fifty years from now, and hopefully, it remains as accessible as this new PC release has allowed it to become.

    Atlus' classic Japanese role-playing game makes a surprise jump to PC, bringing with it the Carl Jung-inspired story and exciting monster-slaying action that makes it a beloved series entry. If you missed Persona 4 Golden's original PlayStation Vita release, or simply wish to revisit the game, you can now enjoy the masterpiece in its best form.

    Persona 4 is still one of the best JRPGs of all time, and this port only further proves that while clearing up your vision of Inaba and adding a new control scheme with which to Face Yourself. With this PC version bringing along the enhancements and new features of Golden, there’s never been a better time to Reach out to the Truth for newcomers or for veterans to Make History.

    Persona 4 Golden on PC is the best thing that could have happened to this game. Once held to Vita exclusivity, many new gamers can discover all the great moments that this adventure has to offer. Add in the inclusion of a few PC-only graphic enhancements and Japanese audio, and you now have the definitive version of this timeless RPG.

    A bare-bones refit, but this remains a captivating JRPG, marrying slice-of-life drama with stylish demon battling.

    Persona 4 Golden has been a bucket list game for me for several years now. I put the Devil Survivor series on my "best of all time" RPG list, and wanted to find out how this sister series played. At 90 hours, it better have been worth it! Occasionally misty-eyed, infrequently laughing out loud, and other times pensive as I sit idly, controller in hand, I can honestly say it was time well spent. With this successful port, I hope that Atlus finds the drive to put Persona 5 on PC as well, because I'll definitely bite.

    Its occasional pizzazz, including Shoji Meguro’s blissful J-pop soundtrack, is undermined by how hard it often is to actually look at the game.

    Of course, the most interesting persona series is three and five.
    However, the reason why Persona 4 has a high rating is because it came out in PC version.
    Persona is, in a word, a game that goes to this world.
    Like Inuyasha or Digimon Adventure, it is a game that goes to this world.
    And it's also a mystery game.
    And it is RPG game like Pokemon.

    This is the best part to introduce to the newbie, but not the best part in the series. Too far as 5 games began to move away from the classicThis is the best part to introduce to the newbie, but not the best part in the series. Too far as 5 games began to move away from the classic smt style.
    More vibrant colors, communication with shadows is ambiguous, for some characters they open a new facet, for some, so understandable problems.
    Marie is a slightly empty character, but it's nice that in this part they added something new and did not just make a port with ps2, but they did not reach the elaboration of new stories of the level of a female hero in 3 parts.
    As for the port, this is an excellent port, but there were problems with the rollers at the start, but they have already been fixed.
    Of course this is not a remake of the fifth engine, but still good.
    I hope that if part 3 is released on the PC, it will be a version with PSP, but with a redesigned open world and the answeh epilogue. I’ll be a little frustrated if they just portort the answer, having lost a lot of the content of the portable version and team management.

    It’s a great game. I enjoyed it a lot when I played it years ago on PSVita.
