The Persona Diaries - Part 0

Thanks to being a snobby PC gamer for many years I never got round to experiencing many of the deep and interesting games on the consoles. One such series is Persona and I recently bought an old PS2 off eBay to restore some legitimacy to my gaming history and experience this critically acclaimed game.

But for some reason I’d always held that series in a mystical, hardcore regard that put me off until recently. I always thought it would be an impenetrable and baffling complex JRPG that I’d find impossible to get into. Thanks to some Twitter evangelising by Paul Rooney I finally caved in and booted the game up.

After only a few minutes all my fears about Persona were shown to be the foolish assumptions they really were. But rather than give a boring summation/review after I’d played the game I thought it would be far more interesting to keep a regular post going about my experiences.

Though I love my JRPG’s I’ve never played a game in this series before. So expect me to witter on about the most obvious features like it’s a revolution in design and get inappropriately excited about battle systems like a great big newbie.

I can’t promise this will be a cast-iron regular feature but I intend to keep updates going for as long as I keep playing. I hope to post once a week or at least several times a month depending on Real Life™ getting in the way, with the first entry coming over the weekend.
