Persona 4 Analysis Part 1

For the tenth anniversary of one of our favorite games ever, Doc and Shadon do a deep dive analysis of their favorite themes, characters, story beats and more!

Part 1 focuses on the social links system. We discuss how this is a fantastic example of a set of gameplay mechanics serving both the plot and the themes of a game. We talk a bit about the shortcomings in the system, and round out our discussion with our feelings on the functions of romance in video games.

Music:
Sound Cyclone “Pursuing My True Self (Average Yellow Mix)”
