Persona 4 Analysis Part 2

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!

In Part 2, we discuss what we believe to be the core theme at the heart of the game, self acceptance. Self-improvement, communication, everything else is built upon this foundation of accepting who you are. We also discuss the nature of shadows, and our love for the idea that gaining a persona in these games is not the end but the beginning!

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.
