    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.

    Twelve years later, and the dreary little world of Persona 4 Golden is as captivating as it's ever been. Having it on Steam is a wonderful boon to its accessibility, given the limited range the Vita and PSTV had, and this port more than does it justice. The elements unique to the expanded rerelease may not add much to the experience, but there's no doubt that this should be on everyone's list of must-play RPGs.

    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.

Tbh gameplay is still tedios sometimes, not like in P3, but still it's not even close to P5 level. Storytelling feels kinda weird, espicially if you are trying to get True ending(I reccomend to check guides so you can get it on your 1st try, on Steam you can find pretty solid guides without spoilers). it feels like they had so many ideas and they tried to stuff it into the last 6-8 hours.

    The best part of the game is the Investigation Team and their chemistery inside of this group. I am actually surprised how many memorable events this guys had. Atlus executed that part so well so it really worth every penny I paid and time i invested in that game(~70 hours). And i more surprised that P5 characters dont have such deep development of their relationships inside of Phantom Thievs.

    The best present for PC players in 2020 year by far!!

    I had a long review written up for why I give it a 10 but I accidentally hit the back button and it all got deleted. Just play the game. TheI had a long review written up for why I give it a 10 but I accidentally hit the back button and it all got deleted. Just play the game. The dungeons may feel a little bland by today's standards but this game is from 2008 (ps2) Jump into to the game with that mindset. Travel back to 2008 for one the best JRPGs of that time. Also anyone having issues with the laggy animated cutscenes there are plenty of fixes on YouTube for the issue that may resolve it for you. I had no issues with it but i know its a problem. Disregard the 0/10 scores. This game is not a zero. Expand
