Arguably one of Personaâ€™s greatest soundtracks, just a shade behind Shoji Meguroâ€™s brilliant arrangement for Persona 5.
Persona 4 Golden doesnâ€™t look too bad for a game from 2012. I do wish they would have put a little more attention into making it feel more like a home console release. For instance, Mrs. Nakayama still looks incredibly weird.
My only gripe with Persona 4 Golden would be the over-simplification of melee attacks when compared to Persona 3, but other than that, you canâ€™t really fault it. Itâ€™s an absolute joy to play.
Persona 4 Golden, from a gameplay, story, and character perspective, has actually aged pretty damn well. It still holds its own as one of the iconic games of the past fifteen years. If it wasnâ€™t for the fairly average visuals, you could certainly mistake it for a game created today.
Persona 4 Goldenâ€™s trophy list pretty much spawned what would become the Persona 5 and Persona 3 Portable lists. Expect multiple playthroughs, maxing out all Social Links in a run, and taking on all optional bosses. Itâ€™s a time investment, for sure, but one that is utterly rewarding.
