From my experience, Child of Light does NOT deserve to be on this list LOL I'm sorry, I really thought that game was too basic and incomplete.

fucking tired of seeing it in every single fucking vita video, its a fucking HISCHOOL ANIME GAME WITH AN 80'S RPG COMBAT SYSTEM. If anything the SMT: IV is a million times better, and probably the only Persona game that doesn't have the highschool garbage.
Tony Quigley (6 months ago)
guys sell your newer Vita and seek out one of the originals, they have a FAR superior screen with much higher resolution, color and image quality. I did it and never looked back
Tony Quigley (6 months ago)
So this bitch narrating has NEVER played any of these games, and probably doesn't even own any kind of console or handheld. (You can tell she hasn't played anything, and didn't write the script as she can't even say FF Tactics properly, she's reading it off like she was only expecting the game name to only have 2 words, but realized it had tactics on the end, listen again) AND she's reading off of a script written by a man. Can i ask why a fucking woman who CLEARLY knows nothing about ANY of the games on this list was hired to Narrate someone elses script? She didn't write the script, a MAN did it. Yet she has a job because she's a woman? ffs. That's like me getting a job in Shoes or Bags or Makeup with ZERO experience, just because they wanted a guy reading the scripts a bunch of women wrote. FUCK this world man.

Don't think it's any surprise that P4G is number 1. It's topped every critic and fan made Vita list since it came out. Vita list from this point on may as well list P4G followed by whatever other games rank below it on the list.

toukiden kiwami over Freedom Wars lol... first of all for music Freedom Wars is way better they got the guy that did patapon. For different gameplay. freedom wars has pvp. also the grapple of freedom wars was so good that toukiden 2 now has that mechanic.

In freedom wars you fight the same enemy's in the same areas with the same missions save the citizen save the citizens , the game is only 1.8 gB put two and two together you have a boring game trust me don't buy it I was so sad when I wanted to love it so much but it was total junk

Would I enjoy Persona 4 golden? The jrpgs I like are Tales of the Abyss (The Tales series is actually my favorite game series), Pokemon, Fire Emblem Awakening, Dragon Quest VII 3ds, etc.
Kraftium (1 year ago)
persona's social links are like a beefed up support system in fire emblem. Its story is fantastic. Its actual dungeon crawling can get a bit bland due to the dungeons being mostly random (with certain floors being acceptions. the battle are fun focusing heavilly on exploiting weaknesses to wreck you're opponants

all I want to know is... is persona 4 really that good...?
s0uI1 (1 year ago)
It is , no doubt. One of the best casts in any rpg. Battles are easy to understand but still deep and challenging if you dont grind too much.And the story is perfectly paced , since the pacing is in your hands because you decide your activities every day.
Bubblegum Jasper (1 year ago)
How about Gravity Rush?
Brian Fernandez (6 months ago)
this is an RPG video, not sure why you expect to find that game here, if you really want to get technical any game in which you play as a character IS a role playing game. Games that have Classes/EXP/Lvl./ that is the kind of thing people call an RPG fuck the fine print
whatoplay (1 year ago)
It's an action-adventure, action role-playing game.

does persona 4 golden really that good? I've seen a lot of videos like this already and some reviews and the game is rated really high. If its really the case, I'll try it soon to find out. I'm not really a fan of JRPGs, I played a few, just played what really interests me.
Purification (1 year ago)
yes the game is definitely the best JRPG I have ever played (And I have played many). It even tops out Chrono Trigger and FFVI.
EntermateStar (2 years ago)
Yes its a masterpiece, personally i prefer Persona 3 Portable on the psp but this is one you definitely should not miss.
Tichrai2 (2 years ago)
wow, conception 2 got 29th place? -_- i got it on the 3ds, and its pretty shit. the big problem -> even 20 hours into the game, the diverse skills and abilities are absolutely pointless. the game just churns weak monsters at you, and even the bosses i encountered were pretty meh. after a while, i just put on autocombat, ran through the dungeons with some healing in between hoping it would get better at some point
EntermateStar (2 years ago)
yeah thats your problem, your on the 3ds version, its way more enjoyable on the vita trust me i have both versions, although it can still be pretty easy at times, i personally still think its a great game

Rian P (2 years ago)
I was considering vita but ended up buying 3ds. I played fire emblem, bravely default, pokemon, and rune factory 4 on it and I loved it. I think I made the right decision. After having 3ds for a while, seeing vita games feels......... meh.
Purification (1 year ago)
Well 3DS has more good titles but nothing it offers comes even close to Persona 4 golden (no not even bravely default/second).
Amirul Faisal (1 year ago)
good decision for those who love nintendo games. as for me i dont like them so in the end i bought a vita and i absolutely love it. at the end of the day it depends what type of games that you like and both vita and 3ds have great games
Qwerty Werty (2 years ago)
I have both and they both have their strong points in terms of RPGs. Persona 4, FFX, Memories of Celceta, Trails of Cold Steel are probably the favourites in terms of an overall RPG package. The only problem is the lack of games because it's such a niche platform. But in terms of functionality I would say it's better than the 3DS.
Spoopy Ghost (2 years ago)
Good decision, I have both and 3ds has so many good games that are hard to pass up. Vita doesn't have many good games, it's better just buying the psp games in the psn store.
Amirul Faisal (2 years ago)
couldnt agree more with the statement " players will play persona 4 golden at least twice"
